Systematic Review of the Anatomic Descriptions of the Glenohumeral Ligaments: A Call for Further Quantitative Studies


Purpose

To perform a systematic review of the glenohumeral ligament anatomic attachments on the glenoid and humeral neck.

Methods

A systematic review was performed according to Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines using the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, PubMed, MEDLINE, and Embase from 1980 to present. The inclusion […]

Biomechanical Evaluation of the Medial Stabilizers of the Patella

2018 AJSM

Lateral patellar dislocations are the second leading cause of traumatic knee hemarthroses, and recurrent patellar dislocations often require surgery. The medial knee structures responsible for stabilization of the patellofemoral joint are the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL), the medial patellotibial ligament (MPTL), and the medial patellomeniscal ligament (MPML). Although […]

Paraskiing Crash and Knee Dislocation With Multiligament Reconstruction and Iliotibial Band Repair


The American Journal of Orthopedics 2017

We describe the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and complications of a 27-year-old male paraskiier who sustained a closed high-velocity knee dislocation after colliding with a tree at a speed of 45 mph and falling 40 feet to the ground. Extensive surgery to repair and recon- struct the knee included open […]

“I do not have time. Is there a handout I can use?”: combining physicians’ needs and behavior change theory to put physical activity evidence into practice

Uptake of physical activity guidelines would improve health and reduce mortality in older adults. Although research and guidelines reinforce the need for strength and balance training, regular participation in both these activities among older adults is as low as 5%, and inactivity remains highly prevalent. Barriers to physical […]

The Role of the Peripheral Passive Rotation Stabilizers of the Knee With Intact Collateral and Cruciate Ligaments: A Biomechanical Study

Rotational instability of the knee in the presence of intact cruciate and collateral ligaments is a complex clinical problem to accurately diagnose and treat. Although advances in anatomic and biomechanical understanding of the knee have led to improved treatment of ligament injuries, there is still a subset of patients who present with symptoms of […]

Demographics and Injuries Associated With Knee Dislocation

2017 OJSM

Few studies have reported on the incidence, injury mechanisms, ligament injury patterns, and associated injuries of knee dislocations. Most studies are retrospective in nature, and few patients are included. The incidence of these injuries is reported to be between 0.02% and 0.2% of all orthopaedic injuries. There is […]

Arthroscopy-Assisted Fabella Excision: Surgical Technique

2017 Arthroscopy Techniques

The fabella is a sesamoid bone located in the posterolateral aspect of the knee, embedded in the muscular and tendon fibers of the lateral head of the gastrocnemius muscle. It articulates anteriorly with the posterior surface of the lateral condyle, and is bordered posteriorly by the oblique […]

Biomechanical Results of Lateral Extra-articular Tenodesis Procedures of the Knee: A Systematic Review

2016 ARTHROSCOPY

Purpose: To systematically review and compare biomechanical results of lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET) procedures.

Methods: A systematic review was performed using the PubMed, Medline, Embase, and Cochrane databases. The search terms included the following: extraarticular, anterolateral, iliotibial, tenodesis, plasty, augmentation, procedure, recon- struction, technique, biomechanics, kinematic, robot, cadaver, knee, […]

A Physeal‐Sparing Fibular Collateral Ligament and Proximal Tibiofibular Joint Reconstruction in a Skeletally Immature Athlete


2016 KSSTA

The purpose of this report was to describe the surgical technique for and outcomes after a modified physeal-sparing posterolateral corner reconstruction in a 12-year-old skeletally immature male with a mid-substance fibular collateral ligament tear, a proximal posterior tibiofibular ligament tear, and an anterior cruciate ligament avulsion fracture of the medial tibial eminence. A […]
