OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article is to review the postoperative MRI appearances of irreparable massive rotator cuff tears (RCTs) after surgery was performed using newer techniques, including patch repair, muscle tendon transfer, superior capsular reconstruction, and subacromial balloon implantation. CONCLUSION: Newer surgical techniques are emerging for the management of massive RCTs. As radiologists become increasingly likely to encounter postoperative imaging studies of RCTs repaired using these techniques, familiarity with the normal postoperative appearances and complications associated with these techniques becomes important...

There have been many innovations in the field of ACL-reconstruction over the years, including the FlipCutter® and TightRope® system (both from Arthrex Inc.). The FlipCutter® is a combined guide pin and reamer that allows minimally invasive socket-creation from the inside out, especially in difficult-to-reach areas. The TightRope® is a further development of the well-known Endobutton™ (Smith & Nephew plc) that consists of a four-point knotless locking system. Its main advantage is its adjustability, which makes it possible to fill the entire bone socket with the graft without any empty space...

Despite relatively good results of current symptomatic treatments for rotator cuff disease, there has been an unmet need for fundamental treatments to halt or reverse the progress of disease. The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and efficacy of intratendinous injection of autologous adipose-tissue derived MSCs (AD MSCs) in patients with rotator cuff disease. The first part of the study consists of 3 dose-escalation cohorts; the low- (1.0x107 cells), mid- (5.0x107 ), and high-dose (1.0x108 ) groups with 3 patients each for the evaluation of the safety and tolerability...

PURPOSE: To determine the influence of preoperative factors on reparability of rotator cuff tears (RCTs) and yield a predictive model for predicting irreparability preoperatively. METHODS: Among patients with full-thickness RCTs, the reparable group underwent arthroscopic rotator cuff repairs for reparable RCTs whereas the irreparable group underwent alternative surgical procedures for irreparable RCTs. We analyzed age, sex, chronic pseudoparalysis (CPP), mediolateral and anteroposterior tear sizes, acromiohumeral distance (AHD), tangent sign, fatty infiltration (FI) (group 1, Goutallier stage 0 or 1; and group 2, Goutallier stage 2, 3, or 4), and tendon involvement (TI) (type 1, supraspinatus; type 2, supraspinatus and subscapularis; type 3, supraspinatus and infraspinatus; and type 4, all 3 tendons)...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to explore whether preservation of native enthesis during rotator cuff repair (RCR) results in a histologically and biomechanically better rotator cuff-greater tuberosity (RC-GT) connection in an animal model. METHODS: Thirty-six New Zealand white rabbits were used in this study. The supraspinatus tendons were cut from the footprint to create a rotator cuff tear (RCT) on both shoulders, followed by immediate repair, with a 1 mm thick tendon stump remaining on the footprint...

We report the case of a 66-year-old male patient with massive ossification of the distal portion of the Achilles tendon, as a late consequence of a surgical release for club foot conducted in his childhood. The singularity of the case report derives from its clinical features: the bone mass was of abnormal dimensions, almost substituting the entire tendon; the condition had always been asymptomatic, without deficits in range of motion, in absence of either pain or biomechanical defects with age. In fact, the condition was diagnosed just recently as a consequence of a tear...

Goo Joo Lee, Donghwi Park
RATIONALE: Local corticosteroid injections are commonly used as an easy, cost-effective treatment for patients with lateral epicondylitis (LE). Despite their strong anti-inflammatory effect, repeated injections of corticosteroids are not recommended in LE because they can aggravate tearing of the tendons. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 65-year-old (Case1) man and a 59-year-old (Case2) man had a 2-month history of right lateral elbow pain exacerbation. DIAGNOSES: Lateral epicondylitis with hypervascularity of the common extensor tendon...

INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to identify the tear pattern that could be anatomically repaired by preserving the remaining tendon on footprint and evaluate clinical outcomes of patients who underwent remaining tendon preserving cuff repair. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Of 523 patients with full-thickness rotator cuff tears who underwent arthroscopic repair, 41 (7.8%) patients had repairable rotator cuff tear while preserving the remaining tendon. Among them, 31 patients were followed-up for more than 2 years, including 26 patients with posterior L-shaped tear and 5 patients with transtendinous tear patterns...

Surgical repair of rotator cuff tears presents a significant clinical challenge with high failure rates and inferior functional outcomes. Graft augmentation improves repair outcomes, however currently available grafting materials have limitations. While cell-seeded decellularized tendon slices may facilitate cell infiltration, promote tendon incorporation and preserve original mechanical strength, the unique fibrocartilage zone is yet to be successfully reestablished. In this study, we investigated the biological and mechanical properties of an engineered tendon-fibrocartilage-bone composite (TFBC) with cyclic tension (3% strain, 0...

Traumatic and overuse hip injuries occur frequently in amateur and professional athletes. After clinical assessment, imaging plays an important role in diagnosis and in defining care management of these injuries. Ultrasonography (US) is being increasingly used in assessment of hip injuries because of the wide availability of US machines, the lower cost, and the unique real-time imaging capability, which allows both static and dynamic evaluation as well as guidance of point-of-care interventions such as fluid aspiration and steroid injection...

BACKGROUND: Massive rotator cuff tears (RCTs) begin as primary tendon injuries and cause a myriad of changes in the muscle, including atrophy, fatty infiltration (FI), and fibrosis. However, it is unclear which changes are most closely associated with muscle function. PURPOSE: To determine if FI of the supraspinatus muscle after acute RCT relates to short-term changes in muscle function. STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study. METHODS: Unilateral RCTs were induced in female rabbits via tenotomy of the supraspinatus and infraspinatus...

BACKGROUND: The failure of rotator cuffs to heal after repair is an unresolved surgical issue. There have been substantial efforts, including the use of biological supplements, to enhance tendon healing. Dermal fibroblasts are a good candidate for tendon tissue engineering because they are similar to the tenocytes used for collagen synthesis. In addition, they are easily accessible because autologous dermal fibroblasts can be obtained from individual skin without major skin defects and allogenic dermal fibroblasts (ADFs) have already been commercialized in the field of skin engineering...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of osteoarthritis after successful meniscal repair is significantly less than that after failed meniscal repair. PURPOSE: To determine whether the addition of anterolateral ligament reconstruction (ALLR) confers a protective effect on medial meniscal repair performed at the time of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. METHODS: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data was performed to include all patients who had undergone primary ACLR with concomitant posterior horn medial meniscal repair through a posteromedial portal between January 2013 and August 2015...
