BACKGROUND: The extensile lateral approach (EL) has been associated with increased wound complications such as apical necrosis which may be due partially from violation of the lateral calcaneal artery (LCA). Traditionally, the vertical limb has been placed half-way between the fibula and Achilles tendon, which may be suboptimal given the proximity to the LCA. We hypothesized that placing the vertical limb further posterior (ie, modified EL [MEL]) would increase the distance from the LCA...

CONTEXT:  Pathologic plantar flexion frequently occurs after operative repair of the Achilles tendon (AT) because of immobilization and non-weight bearing in the first weeks of traditional rehabilitation. Novel rehabilitation strategies that apply mobilization and weight bearing have been proposed, but their effects on medial gastrocnemius myotendinous junction displacement (MJD) and isometric plantar-flexion strength (PFS) are unknown. OBJECTIVE:  To compare the effects of 12 weeks of immediate versus traditional rehabilitation on MJD and PFS in patients with percutaneous AT repair and to compare AT rupture scores (ATRSs) during follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Insertional Achilles tendinopathy and retrocalcaneal bursitis is difficult to treat, and several operative techniques have been used after failure of conservative management. Dorsal wedge calcaneal osteotomy has been described for the treatment of insertional Achilles pathology. It was hypothesized that dorsal wedge calcaneal osteotomy would be an effective and safe method for the treatment of athletes with insertional Achilles pathology unrelieved by nonoperative measures...

The Achilles is the thickest tendon in the body and is the primary elastic energy-storing component during running. The form and function of the human Achilles is complex: twisted structure, intratendinous interactions, and differential motor control from the triceps surae muscles make Achilles behavior difficult to intuit. Recent in vivo imaging of the Achilles has revealed nonuniform displacement patterns that are not fully understood and may result from complex architecture and musculotendon interactions...

Inhomogeneous MT (ihMT) is a new magnetic resonance imaging technique that shows promise for myelin selectivity. Materials with a high proportion of lipids, such as white matter tissue, show a reduced intensity in magnetic resonance images acquired with selective prepulses at positive and negative offsets simultaneously compared to images with a single positive or negative offset prepulse of the same power. This effect was initially explained on the basis of hole-burning in inhomogeneously broadened lines of the lipid proton spin system...

BACKGROUND: Patellar tendon rupture is rare in the general population. Typically, failure occurs proximally or at the mid-substance. Distal avulsion from the tibial tubercle in adults is rare and not well described in the orthopedic literature. METHODS: We present the largest series of patients with distal patellar tendon injury with associated multi-ligamentous disruption of the knee. A series of six patients with distal patellar tendon avulsion were identified at a single institution...

Tears of the rotator cuff are frequent. An estimated 250,000 to 500,000 repairs are performed annually in the United States. Rotator cuff repairs have been successful despite fatty infiltration and atrophy of the rotator cuff muscles. Although the emphasis in rotator cuff repair has historically focused on re-establishing the tendon attachment, there is growing interest in and understanding of the role of the superior capsule. The superior capsule is attached to the undersurface of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus muscle-tendon units, and it resists superior translation of the humeral head...

There remains controversy on the role of a concurrent lateral extra-articular procedure with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Previous biomechanical studies often are historical and inconclusive. Studies show the anterolateral ligament and iliotibial band are secondary restraints and, when injured in conjunction with the ACL, produce gross (Grade 3) pivot-shift subluxations. Recent robotic studies show a well-placed bone-patellar tendon-bone reconstruction does restore time-zero kinematics with a negative pivot-shift...

In a comparative Level III study, Achtnich et al. compared suture anchor repair of acute proximal anterior cruciate ligament avulsion tears with single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with the quadrupled semitendinosus tendon. Short-term follow-up at a mean of 28 months showed that the between-group differences were not different. These results are encouraging but not different from other published series 25+ years ago. Only time will tell whether the long-term outcomes are identical and whether these techniques will also die a slow death...

Muscle atrophy has been established as a predictor of failure after rotator cuff repair. Traditionally, preoperative magnetic resonance imaging has been used as a baseline for subsequent comparison. Use of a preoperative baseline may overestimate the degree of atrophy present. In addition, postoperative progression of atrophy correlates with the integrity of the tendon.

A 59-year-old woman with a painful right knee that became locked in extension after a trivial trauma was seen at the emergency room. This was caused by unloaded hyperextension in bed. She was diagnosed with a superior dislocation of the patella. A closed reduction was performed, but a recurrent episode was seen within a week. An arthroscopy was performed, in which the causative osteophytes were removed. In the 12-month follow-up after treatment, no recurrence was seen. A superior dislocation of the patella is caused by patellofemoral osteophytes that interlock...

BACKGROUND: It is usually accepted that acquired flatfoot deformity after injury is usually due to partial or complete tear of the posterior tibial tendon (PTT), with secondary failure of the other structures which maintain the medial longitudinal arch, such as the plantar calcaneo-navicular (SPRING) ligament. It is unusual to find an isolated Spring Ligament (SL) tear, with an intact TP tendon. METHODS: The medial arch reconstruction technique of an isolated SL tear in 5 patients is presented discussed in this paper...

BACKGROUND: Despite continuing advances in finite element software, the realistic simulation of middle ear response under acoustic stimulation continues to be challenging. One reason for this is the wide range of possible choices that can be made during the definition of a model. Therefore, an explorative study of the relative influences of some of these choices is potentially very helpful. METHOD: Three finite element models of the human middle ear were constructed, based on high-resolution micro-computed tomography scans from three different human temporal bones...

BACKGROUND: This study investigated the morphologic changes in the biceps tendon using ultrasonography before and after successful arthroscopic posterosuperior rotator cuff repair. METHODS: Forty-four patients (44 shoulders) underwent arthroscopic posterosuperior rotator cuff repair with 1-year postoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) follow-up. The patients comprised 22 men and 22 women with an average age of 61 years. The cross-sectional area (CSA) of the biceps tendon in the bicipital groove was measured, and the vascularity in the bicipital groove was graded as 0 to 3, based on the signal density of the anterior circumflex artery, using power Doppler ultrasonography...
