Intra-articular hip injections have proven clinical value for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Historically, these injections have been performed by radiologists using fluoroscopic guidance. This necessitates a radiology referral, delays the injection, and represents lost productivity for the orthopedist. Ultrasound-guided intra-articular hip injections have been described in the radiology literature with excellent accuracy. These injections were performed by radiologists. The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of ultrasound-guided hip injections performed in the orthopedic clinic by orthopedic surgeons and orthopedic physician assistants...

INTRODUCTION: Different hypotheses have been proposed for the pathophysiology of posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) palsy, namely compression, nerve inflammation, and fascicular constriction. We hypothesized that critical reinterpretation of electrodiagnostic (EDX) studies and MRIs of patients with a diagnosis of PIN palsy could provide insight into the pathophysiology and treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients with a diagnosis of nontraumatic PIN palsy and an upper extremity EDX and MRI...

EDITORIAL
Paul E Beaulé
How often in medicine do we have a diagnosis or pathology to evaluate and treat that hasn't previously been described? With the introduction of the concept of femoroacetabular impingement in 1999, Ganz and colleagues effectively put forth a not-previously-described diagnosis in the field of orthopaedic surgery that has expanded into the biosphere of musculoskeletal care, where we can find now research on this subject in radiology, rheumatology, biomechanics, biomedical, physical therapy, and sports medicine journals...

: Congenital pseudarthrosis of the clavicle (CPC) is a very rare condition with a predilection for the right clavicle. Young children are often only symptomatic with activities and as they grow. Operative management in an asymptomatic child is debatable, with various techniques reported in the literature. This is a retrospective, single-centre case series study. All children with CPC treated surgically by resection, bone grafting (nonvascular iliac crest) and plate fixation between 2004 and 2012 at our centre were included...
