Proximal Tibiofibular Reconstruction in Adolescent Patients

2018 Arthroscopy Techniques

Instability of the proximal tibiofibular joint (PTFJ) can present as frank dislocations, vague symptoms of lateral knee pain, discomfort during activity, or symptoms related to irritation of the common peroneal nerve. An accurate preoperative diagnosis is imperative and should include a trial of taping of the PTFJ […]

Quantitative radiographic assessment of the anatomic attachment sites of the anterior and posterior complexes of the proximal tibiofibular joint

KSSTA 2017

Radiographic identification of the anatomic attachment sites of knee ligament structures allows surgeons to obtain an accurate diagnosis and treatment of knee injuries. The previous studies have provided quantitative and radiographic data for other ligaments, which has aided surgeons in intraoperative tunnel placement and postoperative assessment of […]

Opening and Closing Wedge Distal Femoral Osteotomy


OJSM 2016

Background: Lateral compartment osteoarthritis of the knee can be a challenging pathology in the younger, active population due to limited treatment options and high patient expectations. Distal femoral osteotomy (DFO) has been reported to be a potential treatment option.

Purpose: To perform a systematic review on the survival, outcomes, and complications of DFO for […]

Clinical Outcomes of High Tibial Osteotomy for Knee Instability


OJSM 2016

In recent years there has been an increasing interest in high tibial osteotomy (HTO) to treat patients with chronic knee instability due to posterolateral corner (PLC), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) insufficiencies with concurrent malalignment in the coronal and/or sagittal plane.

The purpose of this study was to perform a systematic […]

Trochlear Dysplasia and the Role of Trochleoplasty

CLINICS IN SPORTS MEDICINE 2014

It is estimated that 5.8 cases per 100,000 individuals report primary patellar dislocation. Patients between 10 to 17 years of age increase the incidence of patellar dislocation to 29 cases per 100,000 individuals. Recurrent dislocations reportedly occur in 17% of all cases following a primary dislocation event. After a second dislocation, […]

Prospective Outcomes of Young and Middle-Aged Adults With Medial Compartment Osteoarthritis Treated With a Proximal Tibial Opening Wedge Osteotomy

JOURNAL OF ARTHROSCOPIC AND RELATED SURGERY 2011

The purpose of this study was to conduct a prospective outcome analysis of proximal tibial opening wedge osteotomies performed in young and middle-aged patients (aged < 55 years) for the treatment of symptomatic medial compartment osteoarthritis of the knee.

Patellar Height and Tibial Slope After Opening-Wedge Proximal Tibial Osteotomy

AJSM 2010

Further knee surgery after proximal tibial osteotomies has been reported to have a more difficult surgical exposure due to decreased patellar height after the osteotomy. Although a decrease in patellar height has been reported for closing-wedge proximal tibial osteotomies, it has not been widely verified among opening-wedge procedures.

Proximal Tibial Opening Wedge Osteotomy as the Initial Treatment for Chronic Posterolateral Corner Deficiency in the Varus Knee

AJSM 2007

Nonoperative treatment of posterolateral knee injuries tends to yield poor results. In patients with chronic posterolateral knee injuries, failure to correct genu varus alignment will often result in failure of the posterolateral knee repair or reconstruction.
