Chronic lateral ankle instability is a common condition treated by most foot and ankle surgeons. Once conservative treatment has failed, patients often undergo surgical reconstruction, either anatomic or nonanatomic. The present retrospective cohort study compared the clinical outcomes of 2 different arthroscopic Broström procedures. A total of 110 patients (83 females [75.5%] and 27 males [24.5%]) were treated with 1 of the 2 lateral ankle stabilization techniques from October 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015...

OBJECTIVES: Injury to the lateral ligament complex of the ankle is one of the most common sports-related injury. Usually lateral ankle evolves with excellent clinical recovery with non surgical treatment, however, near about 30% develop a lateral chronic instability sequela. Several open and arthroscopic surgical techniques have been described to treat this medical condition. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Of the 22 patients who were treated; 18 males and 4 females, and aged from 17-42 years (mean 28 years)...

PURPOSE: To compare the biomechanics of a transosseous equivalent (TOE) repair using medial and lateral anchors with tape to a transosseous knotless (TOK) tape repair with only laterally placed intraosseous anchors. METHODS: One of 2 different repairs were performed on 8 paired specimens: (1) transosseous equivalent (TOE) tape repair or (2) transosseous knotless (TOK) tape repair. Specimens were mounted on a materials testing machine and loaded in uniaxial tension to measure cyclic construct gap formation, followed by failure testing...

INTRODUCTION: Single-port total laparoscopic hysterectomy (TLH) has not been widely used because of its technical difficulty and steep learning curve, especially the laparoscopic suturing of the vaginal stump. Barbed suturing is a new technology that has the potential to greatly facilitate laparoscopic suturing. AIM: To compare surgical outcomes and vaginal vault healing between barbed sutures and traditional sutures in the repair of the vaginal vault during single-port TLH...

PURPOSE: When the anterior fascicle of the deltoid ligament is injured in patients with chronic ankle instability, the diagnosis of rotational ankle instability is supported. The aim of this study was to report the results of an all-arthroscopic technique to concomitantly repair the lateral collateral and deltoid ligaments to treat patients with rotational ankle instability. METHODS: Thirteen patients [12 men and 1 woman, median age 32 (15-54) years] with rotational ankle instability were treated by arthroscopic means after failing non-operative management...

Tenodesis of the long head of the biceps (LHB) tendon has long been recognized as a valid alternative to address pathologic conditions of this tendon. However, the location and type of fixation is still a matter of discussion, because common complications associated with this procedure include failure of the repair, persistent pain, reaction to the fixation device, cosmetic deformity, and fracture. The authors describe a method of subpectoral LHB tenodesis that aims to preserve bone stock and allows a strong, easy, and reproducible type of fixation with a minimal approach...

BACKGROUND: In double-row SutureBridge (Arthrex, Naples, FL, USA) rotator cuff repairs, increasing tendon load may generate progressively greater compression forces at the repair footprint (self-reinforcement). SutureBridge rotator cuff repairs using tied horizontal mattress sutures medially may limit this effect compared with a knotless construct. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Rotator cuff repairs were performed in 9 pairs of ovine shoulders. One group underwent repair with a double-row SutureBridge construct with tied horizontal medial-row mattress sutures...

PURPOSE: Recurrent instability remains of concern after arthroscopic Bankart reconstruction. We evaluated various technical factors including anchor design, anchor material, number of anchors used, and interval closure on risk of recurrent instability after arthroscopic Bankart reconstruction. METHODS: A systematic review of MEDLINE and Cochrane databases was conducted, following PRISMA guidelines. Extracted data were recorded on a standardized form. Methodological index for non-randomized studies (MINORS) and Newcastle-Ottawa Scale (NOS) were used to assess study quality and risk bias...

Jordan A Bley, Ryan J Pomajzl, Patrick A Smith
Generally occurring in the 8- to 14-year-old population, tibial eminence avulsion fractures are a common variant of anterior cruciate ligament ruptures and represent 2% to 5% of all knee injuries in skeletally immature individuals. In this article, we report on a new arthroscopic reduction and internal fixation technique that involves 2 absorbable anchors with adjustable suture-tensioning technology. This technique optimizes reduction and helps surgeons avoid proximal tibial physeal damage, procedure-related morbidity, and additional surgery...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the clinical results of an arthroscopy-assisted latissimus dorsi tendon transfer (aLD) for irreparable posterosuperior cuff tears as a primary surgery. The secondary aim of this study was to quantify the learning curve using the log-linear model. We hypothesized that aLD significantly improved shoulder function and that there was consistent reduction of the operative time in support of a learning-curve effect. METHODS: After the arthroscopic partial repair was completed, the latissimus dorsi tendon was harvested via axillary mini-open incision and fixed with a knotless anchor arthroscopically...

BACKGROUND: Acute distal biceps tendon ruptures are uncommon injuries that often affect young active males, typically resulting from an eccentric load on their dominant extremity. The purpose of this study was to compare pullout strength and tendon gapping in the tension slide technique (TST) versus a knotless fixation technique (KFT). METHODS: Two sets of experiments were performed using cadaveric elbow specimens. In the first experiment, eight elbows from different cadavers were tested to compare TST with a standard locking whipstitch with KFT, four elbows in each group, using a standard locking whipstitch...

Tear of the meniscal root results in loss of circumferential hoop tension in the meniscus and increased tibiofemoral contact pressure, leading to cartilage wear. Repair of the meniscal root can restore function of the meniscus. Many techniques for root repair have recently been described. We present a technique for root repair using a transtibial socket and knotless suture technique that can be performed through standard arthroscopy portals.

Arthroscopic labral reconstruction is an alternative procedure for an irreparable hip labrum in the nonarthritic hip population. Although labral reconstruction is a relatively new procedure, data in the literature show favorable outcomes. Patients have shown beneficial outcomes from labral reconstructive surgery as well as when compared with labral repair and debridement patients. However, one of the challenges in performing labral reconstruction has been correctly measuring the graft to perfectly fit the area of labral deficiency...

Posterior shoulder instability with glenoid bone loss has only a fraction of the prevalence of anterior instability. Unlike the latter, there is a paucity of literature regarding the treatment of posterior bony Bankart lesions and even less with concomitant reverse Hill-Sachs lesions. This combination of pathology leads to a difficult situation regarding treatment options. We present our technique for arthroscopic repair of a posterior bony Bankart lesion and reverse Hill-Sachs lesion. The importance of proper portal placement cannot be overstated...
