Fluoroscopy in Hip Arthroscopy

2016-11-28T23:16:35-05:00

Fluoroscopy is an important tool to facilitate hip arthroscopy, from initial joint access to real time assessment of bony decompression. Surgeons typically underestimate the amount of radiation exposure during fluoroscopic-guided hip arthroscopy.

The medical records were reviewed of 100 patients who underwent hip arthroscopy for labral injuries and FAI between January 2010 and January

Use of 3-D fluoroscopy in the treatment of developmental dislocation of the hip

2016-11-28T23:16:35-05:00

Confirming reduction of a developmental dislocation of the hip (DDH) through a spica cast is an imaging challenge. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound have been advocated.1-11 Each of these modalities has its benefits and drawbacks. Ultrasound allows the hip to be visualized in the operating room but is operator-dependent and requires cutting a

Partial-thickness rotator cuff tears: a review

2016-01-14T17:25:25-05:00

Partial-thickness rotator cuff tears are not a single entity; rather, they represent a spectrum of disease states. Although often asymptomatic, they can be significantly disabling. Overhead throwing athletes with partial-thickness rotator cuff tears differ with respect to etiology, goals, and treatment from older, non-athlete patients with degenerative tears. Pathogenesis of degenerative partial-thickness tears is multifactorial,
