Kukkonen et al.'s "Treatment of Nontraumatic Rotator Cuff Tears: A Randomized Controlled Trial with Two Years of Clinical and Imaging Follow-up" compared the efficacy of physical therapy, acromioplasty, and rotator cuff repair for the treatment of degenerative supraspinatus tendon tears in patients aged over 55. This review examines the authors' findings and their implications on clinical practice. Kukkonen et al. reported no significant difference in clinical outcome among patients treated operatively versus non-operatively for degenerative rotator cuff tears...

REVIEW

The treatment of displaced proximal humerus fractures is challenging and complex, as its success is predicated on multiple factors. While it is clear that a majority of proximal humerus fractures may be treated nonoperatively, it is less clear which patients benefit from surgical management. The PROFHER trial, a randomized controlled study, used patient-reported outcomes to compare surgical to nonsurgical management of displaced proximal humerus fractures. The purpose of this review is to highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the PROFHER trial and to assess the validity of its conclusion in the context of existing literature...

BACKGROUND: Consumer-driven healthcare and an increasing emphasis on quality metrics have encouraged patient engagement in the rating of healthcare. As such, online physician rating websites have become mainstream and may play a potential role in future healthcare policy. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate online patient ratings for US sports medicine surgeons, determine predictors of positive ratings and analyze for inter-website scoring correlation...

BACKGROUND: Treatment for osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) remains controversial. Current reviews include low-level evidence studies evaluating the treatment of both pre-collapse and collapse stages of the disease. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of the current study is to systematically review the literature evaluating core decompression (CD) with bone marrow mesenchymal cells (BMMCs), CD alone, and bisphosphonate treatment in pre-collapse ONFH by focusing just on randomized clinical trials (RCTs) reporting functional and radiologic outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is characterized by a wide variety of symptoms and disease manifestations including joint pain, gastrointestinal dysfunction, interstitial lung disease, and cardiomyopathy. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Using the Scleroderma Health Assessment Questionnaire (SHAQ) and Short Form-36 (SF-36) we explored how patient-reported physical health, mental health, and functional status related to these clinical characteristics and to cytokine levels utilizing the Hospital for Special Surgery Scleroderma Registry...

BACKGROUND: Femoral stem fracture following total hip arthroplasty is an uncommon event that requires immediate revision surgery. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We report on four patients who experienced stem fractures of one design and a review of the US Food and Drug Administration adverse event reports on this design. METHODS: Fracture surfaces of four EMPERION™ (Smith & Nephew, Memphis, TN) femoral stems were analyzed under optical and scanning electron microscopy...

BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether isolated gastroc/soleus tightness can increase the risk of lower extremity injury in an otherwise healthy child. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Is there a difference in gastroc/soleus tightness, as represented by ankle dorsiflexion with the knee extended, in children presenting with upper versus lower extremity complaints? (2) Is there a difference in gastroc/soleus tightness in children presenting with atraumatic versus traumatic lower extremity complaints? METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study of 206 consecutive walking age children presenting to a county orthopedic clinic with new upper or lower extremity complaints...

BACKGROUND: Surgical approach is known as a risk factor that influences cup malposition while performing total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, no study has been conducted comparing cup positioning between the supine direct anterior (DA) and supine direct lateral (DL) THA approaches. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Is there a difference in acetabular cup positioning between supine DA and supine DL THA approaches? (2) Are there differences in complications based on acetabular cup positioning between the two approaches? METHODS: From 2012 to 2014, 186 patients who underwent primary THAs using DA approach were matched with 186 patients using DL approach by body mass index, age, and gender...

BACKGROUND: ACL status varies in the arthritic knee during TKA. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to examine clinical features and intraoperative findings associated with stages of ACL degeneration. METHODS: Coronal deformity, ROM, intra-articular degenerative patterns, and ligament releases were assessed for 1656 knees during TKA. Common patterns of deformity and severity of degenerative change were assessed as a function of the severity of ACL deficiency...

BACKGROUND: Proper alignment of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is essential for TKA function and may reduce the risk of aseptic failure. Technologies that prevent malalignment may reduce the risk of revision surgery. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to compare two competing TKA systems that purport improved alignment: patient-specific instrumentation (PSI), and a handheld portable navigation device (NAV). METHODS: After IRB approval, 49 consecutive PSI TKAs (40 patients) were matched based on preoperative characteristics to 49 NAV TKAs (40 patients) performed by a single surgeon...

BACKGROUND: Rotational alignment of prosthetic components in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is important to successful outcomes. Component malrotation is a known cause of revision and understanding normal rotational alignment may help recreate normal joint kinematics. To date, no large MRI study assessing femorotibial rotational alignment in nonarthritic knees has been undertaken. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Is Insall's tibial axis a reliable rotational landmark against common femoral rotational axes in the nonarthritic patient population? METHODS: We reviewed 544 knee MRI scans performed for suspected soft tissue pathology and identified Insall's tibial rotational axis as well as the femoral clinical trans-epicondylar axis (TEAc), femoral surgical trans-epicondylar axis (TEAs), posterior condylar articular axis (PCA), and a modified Eckhoff's cylindrical axis...

BACKGROUND: The internet has an increasing role in both patient and physician education. While several recent studies critically appraised the quality and accuracy of web-based written information available to patients, no studies have evaluated such parameters for open-access video content designed for provider use. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The primary goal of the study was to determine the accuracy of internet-based instructional videos featuring the shoulder physical examination...

BACKGROUND: Traditional intra-articular arthroscopic repair techniques for massive anterosuperior rotator cuff tears are technically demanding and necessitate sacrifice of the rotator interval to enable visualization. An interval slide allows mobilization through release of the medial aspect of the rotator interval, while leaving the lateral, bridging fibers intact. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to report a novel, arthroscopic, open-equivalent technique using the subdeltoid space to address these tears along with early clinical results...

REVIEW

Obesity is a well-known risk factor for postoperative complications following total joint arthroplasty. However, because the operation is often successful, orthopedic surgeons continue to operate on obese individuals, and many surgeons do so under the assumption that patients will lose weight after they are able to walk and exercise without pain. In this article, we review a recent study by Ast et al., who performed a retrospective review, using a single-center institutional registry, to determine (1) whether patients do actually lose weight after total hip and/or total knee arthroplasty, (2) whether there are predictors of postoperative weight change, and (3) whether postoperative weight changes affect patient-reported clinical outcomes...
