BACKGROUND: Previous work shows that young athletes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) demonstrate single-leg (SL) landing movement asymmetries at the time of return to sport (RTS); however, the effect of movement asymmetries on longitudinal knee-related function after ACLR has not been examined. Hypothesis/Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of SL drop-landing movement symmetry at the time of RTS on knee-related function 2 years later in young athletes after ACLR...

BACKGROUND: The available comparative studies of computer navigation-assisted and conventional knee arthroplasties have short-term follow-up periods. Therefore, the clinical benefits after long-term follow-up are not clear. The purposes of the current long-term study were to compare clinical outcomes, alignment of the knee components, prevalence of aseptic loosening of the components, implant survival, and complications of total knee arthroplasties performed with and without computer navigation...

Because previous studies have suggested that there is a relationship between injury risk and inter-segment coordination, quantifying coordination between the segments is essential. Even though the midfoot and forefoot segments play important roles in dynamic tasks, previous studies have mostly focused on coordination between the shank and rearfoot segments. This study aimed to quantify coordination among rearfoot, midfoot, and forefoot segments during running. Eleven healthy young men ran on a treadmill. The coupling angle, representing inter-segment coordination, was calculated using a modified vector coding technique...

BACKGROUD: Whole-body vibration(WBV) has been suggested for the prevention of subchondral bone loss of knee osteoarthritis (OA) . This study examined the effects of different frequency of whole-body vibration on subchondral trabecular bone microarchitecture, cartilage degradation and metabolism of the tibia and femoral condyle bone, and joint pain in an anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT)-induced knee osteoarthritisrabbit model. METHOD: Ninety adult rabbits were divided into six groups: all groups received unilateral ACLT; Group 1, ACLT only; Group 2, 5 Hz WBV; Group 3, 10 Hz WBV; Group 4, 20 Hz WBV; Group 5, 30 Hz WBV; and Group 6, 40 Hz WBV...

CONTEXT: Taping is commonly used in the management of several musculoskeletal conditions, including patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Specific guidelines for taping are unknown. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the efficacy of knee taping in the management of PFPS. Our hypothesis was that tension taping and exercise would be superior to placebo taping and exercise as well as to exercise or taping alone. DATA SOURCES: The PubMed/MEDLINE, Cochrane, Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine Source, and CINAHL databases were reviewed for English-language randomized controlled trials (RCTs) evaluating the efficacy of various taping techniques that were published between 1995 and April 2015...

Polyostotic sclerosing histiocytosis, also known as Erdheim-Chester disease (ECD), is a rare form of non-Langerhans histiocytosis. ECD has wide clinical spectrums which mainly affect skeletal, neurological, dermatological, retroperitoneal, cardiac, and pulmonary manifestations. Here we describe a case of ECD in a 45-year-old female who presented initially with bilateral knee pain and homonymous superior quadrantanopia progressed to ophthalmoplegia and complete visual loss of the left eye over a period of one year...

INTRODUCTION: The patella is the largest sesamoid bone in the body and may have one (77%) or multiple (23%) ossification centres. Patellar and patellofemoral joint abnormalities are a common cause of anterior knee pain but symptomatic bipartite patella is an uncommon problem. CASE SERIES: We report a series of six cases of painful synchondrosis in bipartite patellae, all in keen athletes following a direct blow to the anterior aspect of the knee. A complete rupture of the synchondrosis with evidence of retropatellar chondral separation was seen on MRI scan in all cases...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have investigated the associations between patient-reported outcome and gait in patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and reconstruction over time. Because there is an association between ACL rupture and the presence of osteoarthritis later in life, a better understanding of these relationships will help to elucidate how patients' gait pattern may affect pain and symptoms, potentially leading to better treatment for or preventing the development of knee OA...

PURPOSE: To date, four synovial plicae are classically described in the knee. We report a previously undescribed new inferior patellar plica, named "bib-like plica" (BLP, referring to its morphology) related to specific symptoms of atypical recurrent anterior knee pain in the presence of a locked or pseudo-locked knee. We describe this anatomical structure, and assess its clinical relevance in daily practice in terms of clinical pattern and long-term follow-up outcome after arthroscopic excision...

Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) has substantial benefits, including lower perioperative morbidity and earlier recovery, compared with total knee arthroplasty. The traditionally strict indications for UKA have been challenged by studies that expanded the indications based on a diagnosis of anteromedial osteoarthritis of the knee and demonstrated successful outcomes. The Nuffield criteria no longer prohibit patients from UKA based on age, obesity, anterior knee pain, or involvement of the patellofemoral joint...

Congenital short femur syndrome is a rare condition affecting about 0.017 of every 1,000 births. Patients frequently have ligamentous abnormalities, most frequently aplastic or hypoplastic cruciate ligaments. Advances in limb lengthening procedures have increased movement expectations for these patients, thus necessitating surgical treatment for their ligamentous abnormalities. An individual case is presented, including history, physical exam, and imaging demonstrating both the short femur and absent cruciate ligaments...

Tae Won Benjamin Kim, Nic Gay, Arpit Khemka, Jonathan Garino
BACKGROUND: Conservative treatment remains the first-line option, and there is significant medical evidence showing that home-based exercise therapy for the treatment of common causes of knee pain is effective. SimpleTherapy created an online platform that delivers Internet-based exercise therapy for common causes of knee pain. The system is driven by an algorithm that can process the user's feedback to provide an adaptive exercise regimen. This triple-armed, pragmatic randomized pilot was designed to evaluate if this telerehabilitation platform is safe and effective...

We describe a rare case of a patellar tendon "re-rupture" at the opposite end of a previous proximal tendon repair. A 32-year-old male with a history of surgically repaired right proximal patellar tendon rupture presented with an acute non-traumatic right knee pain and instability during sports. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a complete rupture of his distal patellar tendon at the tibial tuberosity. The patellar tendon was repaired using two 5.5 mm BioCorkscrews (Arthrex) inserted into the tibial tuberosity; the tendon was stitched with the No...
