BACKGROUND: Arthroscopic surgery in borderline dysplastic hips remains controversial, but the role of the ligamentum teres (LT) has not been studied in this setting. HYPOTHESIS: Borderline dysplastic patients with LT tears have worse short-term outcomes than those without LT tears. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: Data were prospectively collected on patients who underwent arthroscopic surgery between February 2008 and April 2014...

As the readers of this journal know all too well, conducting a study takes a lot of time, energy, commitment, and, most of all, work. I do not have to list the myriad steps that need to be taken, often with delays in between, to take a study from good idea to analysis. There are often sweat and tears, if not blood, and, at the end of the process, there may be exhaustion. Then the piles of paper and data-rich files languish on a desk or computer, never to see the light of day. Or, perhaps, a manuscript is written and submitted and then rejected or needs extensive revision...

This study aims to explore women's experience of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) in the workplace, and identify if organizations can do anything to help. Analysis of 15 semi-structured interviews, using an inductive thematic analysis approach, revealed the most common symptoms women experience at work include difficulty in concentrating, self-doubt, paranoia, fatigue, tearfulness, a heightened sensitivity to the environment and people, outbursts, and finding social interaction particularly difficult during this premenstrual "episode" phase...

Inflammation is associated with glenohumeral arthritis and rotator cuff tendon tears. Epigenetically, miRNAs tightly regulate various genes involved in the inflammatory response. Alterations in the expression profile of miRNAs and the elucidation of their target genes with respect to the pathophysiology could improve the understanding of their regulatory role and therapeutic potential. Here, we screened key miRNAs that mediate inflammation and linked with JAK2/STAT3 pathway with respect to the coincidence of glenohumeral arthritis in patients suffering from rotator cuff injury (RCI)...

Ligament sprains, defined as tearing of bands of fibrous tissues within ligaments, account for a majority of injuries to the foot and ankle complex in field-based sports. External rotation of the foot is considered the primary injury mechanism of syndesmotic ankle sprains with concomitant flexion and inversion/eversion associated with particular patterns of ligament trauma. However, the influence of the magnitude and direction of loading vectors to the ankle on the in situ stress state of the ligaments has not been quantified in the literature...

OBJECTIVE: To elucidate the role of MRI in predicting meniscal tear reparability according to tear type and location in relation to vascular zones. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective study, two readers evaluated 79 pre-surgical MRIs of meniscal tears arthroscopically treated with meniscectomy or meniscal repair. Tears were classified according to type into vertical, horizontal, radial, complex, flaps and bucket handle and were considered reparable if the distance measured from the tear to the menisco-capsular junction was less than or equal to 5 mm...

We present an unusual case of a 44-year-old male who developed violent hiccups soon after a ureteroscopy for nephrolithiasis; later, the forceful hiccups were followed by hematemesis. Upper esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed Mallory-Weiss tears and esophageal erosions in the lower esophagus. Esophageal biopsy was unremarkable. The patient did not have a prior history of the gastrointestinal disorder. Although extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy has on rare occasion been implicated in the development of gastrointestinal erosions, no such correlation exists for ureteroscopy and upper gastrointestinal bleeding in the management of nephrolithiasis...

With the current data concentrating on different operative treatment options for plantar plate tears, few data can be found on possible nonoperative treatment strategies for this entity and the specifics of such treatment. In the present case report, the successful nonoperative treatment of a patient with a rupture of the plantar plate in a lesser toe metatarsophalangeal joint is presented. The patient was followed up using repeat clinical examinations and high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging scans for 1 year after the imitation of therapy to provide information on the different stages of the healing process...

The peroneus tertius muscle arises in the anterior compartment of the leg and demonstrates significant morphologic variation. Its function is not yet clearly delineated. We present the case of a 12-year-old patient with an isolated tear of the peroneus tertius tendon that resulted in lateral based ankle pain. After surgical reconstruction, the patient's pain resolved, and he was able to return to his normal activities.

Tearing of the rotator cuff commonly occurs as among one of the most frequently experienced tendon disorders. While treatment typically involves surgical repair, failure rates to achieve or sustain healing range from 20 to 90%. The insufficient capacity to recover damaged tendon to heal to the bone, especially at the enthesis, is primarily responsible for the failure rates reported. Various types of biomaterials with special structures have been developed to improve tendon-bone healing and tendon regeneration, and have received considerable attention for replacement, reconstruction, or reinforcement of tendon defects...

BACKGROUND: Studies have demonstrated hip arthroscopy to be an effective treatment for femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) with associated labral tears. The purposes of this study were to report 10-year outcomes and hip survival following hip arthroscopy for FAI and to compare labral debridement with labral repair. METHODS: Prospectively collected data on patients followed for a minimum of 10 years after hip arthroscopy for FAI with either labral debridement or labral repair performed by a single surgeon were retrospectively analyzed...

Massive irreparable rotator cuff tears are difficult to treat. Although several treatment options exist, none provides superior long-term results. There is no consensus on optimal surgical technique. Superior capsular reconstruction is an operative treatment option aimed at restoring native biomechanics of the glenohumeral joint by providing a restraint to superior subluxation. Partial rotator cuff repair for massive tears has also been shown to improve shoulder kinematics and can be performed in conjunction with superior capsule reconstruction...

The shape of the acromion differs between patients with degenerative rotator cuff tears and individuals without rotator cuff pathology.It can be assessed in the sagittal plane (acromion type, acromion slope) and in the coronal plane (lateral acromion angle, acromion index, critical shoulder angle).The inter-observer reliability is better for the measurements in the coronal plane.A large lateral extension (high acromion index or high critical shoulder angle) and a lateral down-sloping of the acromion (low lateral acromion angle) are associated with full-thickness supraspinatus tears...

The importance of the ligamentum teres (LT) in the hip is increasingly being recognized. However, the incidence of LT tears in the literature is extremely variable. Although classification systems exist their reliability in classifying LT pathology arthroscopically has not been well defined. To determine the inter- and intra-observer reliability of two existing classifications systems for the diagnosis of LT pathology at hip arthroscopy. Second, to identify key pathological findings currently not included. Four experienced hip-arthroscopists reviewed 40 standardized arthroscopic videos...

Abductor lesions are increasingly recognized as a source of recalcitrant laterally based hip pain and dysfunction. There is a growing body of evidence that many of these may be amenable to endoscopic repair. To report the demographic data and outcomes of endoscopic hip abductor repair. Twelve patients underwent endoscopic abductor repair with 2-year follow-up. These patients were prospectively assessed with modified Harris hip and iHOT scores. The indications for surgery were clinical and MRI findings of symptomatic abductor tears that had failed conservative treatment...

BACKGROUND: Primary dural repair in ossification of posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) surgery via anterior is challenging because of limited space. Based on several years of our experiences, we present our concept for addressing cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage following dural tear during anterior OPLL surgery. METHODS: We reviewed the medical records of 65 patients who underwent anterior OPLL surgery from 2003 to 2014. We included 7 patients whose operation records described dural tear followed by CSF leakage...
