Editorial Commentary: The Indication and Technique of Iliotibial Band Release for External Snapping Hip During Hip Arthroscopy in Patients With Femoroacetabular Impingement Syndrome.

Arthroscopy 2022 Jun;38(6):1900-1903

The Fourth Medical Center, Chinese PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

Patients with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome (FAIS) often have extra-articular disorders, such as external snapping hip (ESH). We recommend that obvious ESH be addressed by endoscopic transversal iliotibial band (ITB) release during hip arthroscopy for FAIS because the residual serious snapping caused by ESH negatively affects the outcome of hip arthroscopy. However, for mild ESH without indications for severe trochanteric bursitis on magnetic resonance imaging, we still propose that physical therapy, extracorporeal shock wave therapy, or local injection be performed for pain relief.

The 'Bauer bump:' ice hockey skates as a common cause of Haglund syndrome.

Phys Sportsmed 2022 May 27:1-6. Epub 2022 May 27.

Center for Shoulder, Elbow and Sports Medicine, Columbia University Medical Center, NY, NY, USA.

Ice hockey is a fast-paced contact sport with a high rate of injury. While many of the injuries are acute and related to high skating speeds, frequent collisions, and sharp skates, the clinician must also be aware of the chronic injuries that commonly arise from playing this sport. The "Bauer bump" is one such chronic injury, which is the onset of Haglund syndrome in ice hockey players occurring in the context of wearing ice hockey skates. Read More

Peripheral Joint Injections.

Phys Med Rehabil Clin N Am 2022 05;33(2):267-306

Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Ventura County Medical Center, 300 Hillmont Avenue, Ventura, CA 93003, USA.

Peripheral joint injections are a common interventional treatment of peripheral joint-mediated pain, including arthritis, tendinopathy, and bursitis that are not responsive to conservative management. Degenerative changes of articular joints are often related to these symptoms through chronic inflammatory changes, which typically arise due to repetitive trauma, autoimmune disease, or metabolic abnormalities. The primary diagnosis for degenerative disease in the peripheral joints is osteoarthritis but can also include rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and other less common etiologies. Read More

MR Imaging of the Knee Bursae and Bursal Pathology.

Magn Reson Imaging Clin N Am 2022 May 13;30(2):241-260. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Division of Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention, Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, Yawkey 6E, Boston, MA 02114, USA. Electronic address:

The main function of the knee bursae is to provide cushioning for the many periarticular ligaments, tendons, and osseous structures. Bursae can only be visualized when distended by fluid, therefore bursal anatomy is best evaluated by MR imaging using fluid-sensitive sequences. Knowledge of the normal bursal distribution is important to avoid incorrectly interpreting a distended bursa as a periarticular fluid collection or cyst. Read More

Prevalence of Contralateral Hip Abductor Tears and Factors Associated With Symptomatic Progression.

Am J Sports Med 2022 05;50(6):1603-1608

Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, Prisma Health-Upstate, Greenville, South Carolina, USA.

Background: Patients with gluteus medius tendinopathy present with laterally based hip pain that can be diagnosed under the greater trochanteric pain syndrome diagnosis. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can assist in diagnosing pathology of the symptomatic hip, and when a pelvic MRI that includes both hips, the clinician may identify asymptomatic tears in the nonsurgical hip. In patients who undergo unilateral gluteus medius repairs, little is known about the prevalence or subsequent onset of clinical symptoms in the nonsurgical hip. Read More

Magnetic resonance imaging of musculoskeletal infections.

Pol J Radiol 2022 5;87:e141-e162. Epub 2022 Mar 5.

Department of Radiology, University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a powerful imaging modality in the evaluation of musculoskeletal (MSK) soft tissue, joint, and bone infections. It allows prompt diagnosis and assessment of the extent of disease, which permits timely treatment to optimize long-term clinical outcomes. MRI is highly sensitive and specific in detecting the common findings of MSK infections, such as superficial and deep soft tissue oedema, joint, bursal and tendon sheath effusions, lymphadenopathy, bone marrow oedema, erosive bone changes and periostitis, and bone and cartilage destruction and sequestration.

Editorial Commentary: It Is Imperative to Fix Symptomatic Hip Gluteus Medius Tears at Time of Femoroacetabular Impingement: Why Ignore This Pain in the Butt?

Arthroscopy 2022 05;38(5):1506-1508

Akron, Ohio.

The hip can have a multitude of different pathologies leading to different symptoms. Greater trochanteric pain syndrome, historically attributed to bursitis, has been largely found to be associated with lesions of the gluteus medius and minimus tendons, and the prevalence of gluteus medius pathology in patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is as high as one-third of the FAI population. If a patient is found to have significant clinical symptoms of both FAI and a gluteus medius tear, it is imperative to fix both pathologies. Read More

LUMC, afd. Orthopedie, Leiden.

Frozen shoulder (FS), also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a painful inflammatory fibrotic disease of the glenohumeral joint capsule. While it's frequently self-limiting, patients can be symptomatic for years. The clinical course is often divided into three phases: the freezing phase with predominantly pain, the frozen phase with mainly stiffness, and the thawing phase during which the complaints slowly resolve.

Endoscopic Resection for Iliopectineal Bursitis Associated With Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip.

Cureus 2022 Mar 26;14(3):e23515. Epub 2022 Mar 26.

Orthopedic Surgery, Akita University Graduate School of Medicine, Akita, JPN.

Iliopectineal bursitis usually develops subsequent to other hip pathologies and can often be treated conservatively. However, when conservative treatment fails or the enlarged bursa causes pain or compression of the surrounding neurovascular structures, surgery may be required. Most previous studies have described open surgeries, and reports on endoscopy are very limited. Read More
