Arthroscopic biceps tenodesis using the knotless lasso technique.

J ISAKOS 2022 Mar 31. Epub 2022 Mar 31.

Division of Sports Medicine, Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA.

Long head biceps tendinopathy can be a significant pain generator, often presenting with pain localised to the anterior shoulder. Biceps tenodesis, both open and arthroscopic, is a well-established treatment for long head biceps pathology. In this presentation, we describe a novel arthroscopic onlay technique for long head biceps tenodesis using a lasso configuration with two knotless suture anchors that provide an efficient, low-profile construct to limit scarring and adhesions while providing circumferential fixation.

Nonoperative and Operative Soft-Tissue and Cartilage Regeneration and Orthopaedic Biologics of the Foot and Ankle: An Orthoregeneration Network (ON) Foundation Review.

Arthroscopy 2022 May 20. Epub 2022 May 20.

Orthoregeneration is defined as a solution for orthopaedic conditions that harnesses the benefits of biology to improve healing, reduce pain, improve function, and optimally, provide an environment for tissue regeneration. Options include: drugs, surgical intervention, scaffolds, biologics as a product of cells, and physical and electromagnetic stimuli. The goal of regenerative medicine is to enhance the healing of tissue after musculoskeletal injuries as both isolated treatment and adjunct to surgical management, using novel therapies to improve recovery and outcomes.

Bioengineered 3D living fibers as in vitro human tissue models of tendon physiology and pathology.

Adv Healthc Mater 2022 May 21:e2102863. Epub 2022 May 21.

3B's Research Group, i3Bs - Research Institute on Biomaterials, Biodegradables and Biomimetics, University of Minho, 4805-017 Barco, Guimarães, Portugal.

Clinically relevant in vitro models of human tissue's health and disease are urgently needed for a better understanding of biological mechanisms essential for the development of novel therapies. Herein, the physiological (healthy) and pathological (disease) tendon states are bioengineered by coupling the biological signaling of platelet lysate components with the controlled 3D architectures of electrospun microfibers to drive the fate of human tendon cells in different composite living fibers (CLFs). In the CLFs-healthy model, tendon cells adopt a high cytoskeleton alignment and elongation, express tendon-related markers (scleraxis, tenomodulin, and mohawk) and deposit a dense tenogenic matrix.

Longus colli tendinitis: acute neck pain with retropharyngeal swelling.

BMJ Case Rep 2022 May 19;15(5). Epub 2022 May 19.

Otorhinolaryngology, Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore.

Longus colli tendinitis (LCT) has been described in several case reports, and is likely underdiagnosed due to its non-specific symptoms and self-limiting nature. It usually presents as acute neck pain with retropharyngeal swelling seen on nasoendoscopy and imaging studies. This may lead to unnecessary invasive interventions if physicians are unaware of the disease course. Read More

The "Bauer Bump:" Ice hockey skates as a common cause of Haglund syndrome.

Phys Sportsmed 2022 May 18. Epub 2022 May 18.

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

Is Lateral Elbow Tendinopathy an Appropriate Clinical Diagnostic Term When the Condition Is Persistent?

J Clin Med 2022 Apr 20;11(9). Epub 2022 Apr 20.

Department of Neurology, Faculty of Health and Caring Sciences, University of West Attica, Agiou Spyridonos 28, Egaleo, 12243 Athens, Greece.

Lateral elbow tendinopathy (LET) seems to be the most appropriate term to use in clinical practice because previous terms such as lateral epicondylitis, tennis elbow, lateral epicondylalgia, epicondylosis, enthesopathy, Father of the Bride's Elbow, lateral elbow or extensor tendonitis, lateral elbow or extensor tendinosis, and extensor tendinopathy make reference to inappropriate aetiological, anatomical, and pathophysiological terms [...

Tendon Microstructural Disruption Promotes Tendon-derived Stem Cells to Express Chondrogenic Genes by Activating Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress.

J Orthop Res 2022 May 9. Epub 2022 May 9.

Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Musculoskeletal Tissue Reconstruction and Function Restoration, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Shenzhen People's Hospital (the First Affiliated Hospital, Southern University of Science and Technology;the Second Clinical Medical College, Jinan University), Shenzhen, China.

However, the regulatory mechanisms of TDSC differentiation remain unclear. The aim of this study is to investigate the contribution and mechanism of the tendon microstructural disruption on the differentiation of TDSCs. 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

Intra-articular Neoplasms and Masslike Lesions of the Knee: Emphasis on MR Imaging.

Magn Reson Imaging Clin N Am 2022 May 13;30(2):339-350. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Department of Radiology, UCSD Health System, University of California, HCOP MRI, 408 Dickinson Street, San Diego, CA 92103-8226, USA.

Intra-articular masses affecting the knee joint are uncommon lesions that encompass a range of neoplastic and nonneoplastic disorders. A joint mass limited to a single articulation is most commonly related to neoplastic or focal proliferative disease, whereas masses affecting multiple articulations are typically caused by underlying inflammatory arthritides, metabolic abnormalities, or systemic deposition disorders. This article focuses on those masses that present in a monoarticular fashion, emphasizing the lesions that most commonly affect the knee joint. Read More
