  • Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with a biocomposite interference screw maintains graft fixation survival and improves clinical outcomes at 1 year: A multicenter prospective case series

    Isolated tears of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are a commonly encountered orthopedic injury, estimated to occur at a rate of 68.6 per 100,000 person-years. ACL tears are associated with significant short- and long-term morbidity, including chronic pain, impaired function, decreased quality of life, and increased risk of developing early-onset osteoarthritis.
  • Anatomic Variations of the Deltoid Muscle Insertion: A Cadaveric Study

    The deltoid is a tri-segmented muscle with anterior, middle, and posterior components. While the clinical relevance of the presence of anatomic variations of the deltoid origin and insertion continues to be debated, the architecture of the deltoid muscle is more complex than initially believed. This study aimed to evaluate the gross anatomy of the deltoid muscle insertion by qualitatively and quantitatively characterizing the insertion and location of the deltoid muscle's anterior, middle, and posterior components.
  • Stener-like lesion of the lateral meniscus in the setting of a multiligamentous knee injury: A case report

    Traumatic dislocations of the knee can result in significant soft tissue damage including multiligamentous and meniscal knee injury. When a meniscal tear involves the posterior horn, the meniscus loses one of its attachments to the tibia and can become extruded from the joint. Stener-like lesions of the knee have been reported throughout the literature; however, they have been exclusively described as a distal tear of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) lying superficial to the pes anserine tendon which prevents anatomic healing.
  • Total intravenous anesthesia compared to traditional general anesthesia in shoulder arthroscopy with interscalene block in the beach chair position

    Shoulder arthroscopy is commonly performed in the beach chair position, which has been linked to cerebral oxygen desaturation. Previous studies comparing general anesthesia (GA) to total intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) using propofol indicate that TIVA can preserve cerebral perfusion and autoregulation, as well as shorten recovery time and reduce the incidence of postoperative nausea and vomiting.
  • Humeral osteophyte size and clinical outcomes after anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty

    The severity of primary glenohumeral osteoarthritis (PGOA) has been associated with advanced radiographic findings including inferior humeral head osteophytes. The primary objective of this study is to analyze for any correlation between the size of the inferior humeral head osteophyte and functional outcomes in patients undergoing anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) for PGOA.
