Fluoroscopy in Hip Arthroscopy


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


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


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,
