Appropriateness of Cervical MRI in the Evaluation and Management of C1 Jefferson Fractures.

World Neurosurg 2022 Aug 7. Epub 2022 Aug 7.

Department of Anesthesiology, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville.

Background: Traditionally, C1 fractures have been designated as stable or unstable based on the inherent integrity of the transverse altantal ligament. The purpose of our study was to identify adult trauma patients with C1 fractures on cervical CT and evaluate whether C1-C2 alignment differed in patients with and without an associated transverse atlantal ligament injury on follow-up cervical MRI.

Materials And Methods: Adult trauma patients who suffered a C1 fracture were identified retrospectively. Read More

Impact of Resolvin D1 on the inflammatory phenotype of periodontal ligament cell response to hypoxia.

J Periodontal Res 2022 Aug 9. Epub 2022 Aug 9.

School/Hospital of Stomatology, Lanzhou University, Lanzhou, P.R.China.

Objective: Periodontal ligament cells (PDLCs) are critical for wound healing and regenerative capacity of periodontal diseases. Within an inflammatory periodontal pocket, a hypoxic environment can aggravate periodontal inflammation, where PDLCs response to the inflammation would change. Resolvin D1 (RvD1) is an endogenous lipid mediator, which can impact intracellular inflammatory pathways of periodontal/oral cells and periodontal regeneration. Read More

'I was young, I wanted to return to sport, and re-ruptured my ACL' - young active female patients' voices on the experience of sustaining an ACL re-rupture, a qualitative study.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Aug 9;23(1):760. Epub 2022 Aug 9.

SportRehab Sports Medicine Clinic, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Background: Despite anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) re-ruptures being common, research on patient experiences after knee trauma has primarily focused on the time after primary ACL reconstruction. Integrating qualitative research and patient experiences can facilitate researchers and clinicians in understanding the burden of an ACL re-rupture. The aim of the study was to explore the experiences of an ACL re-rupture journey in young active females aiming to return to knee-strenuous sports after primary ACL reconstruction. Read More

Effects of modified trans-tibial versus trans-portal technique on stress patterns around the femoral tunnel in anatomical single-bundle ACL reconstruction with different knee flexion angles using finite element analysis.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2022 Aug 8;23(1):759. Epub 2022 Aug 8.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Hallym University Dongtan Sacred Heart Hospital, 7, Keunjaebong-gil, Hwaseong, Gyeonggi-do, Republic of Korea.

Background: It is unclear whether different anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft trajectories in the distal femur would have different effects on stress generated within the distal femur around the femoral tunnel during knee motion. Thus, the purpose of this study was to determine differences in stress patterns around the femoral tunnel created by trans-portal (TP) vs. modified trans-tibial (TT) technique in anatomical ACL reconstruction at different knee flexion angles.

Mechanical Factors Contributing to Altered Knee Extension Moment during Gait after ACL Reconstruction: A Longitudinal Analysis.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2022 Aug 6. Epub 2022 Aug 6.

School of Kinesiology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI.

Purpose: To comprehensively examine the extent to which knee flexion angle at initial contact, peak knee flexion angle, and vertical ground reaction force (vGRF) contribute to knee extension moments during gait in individuals with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.

Methods: Overground gait biomechanics were evaluated in twenty-six participants with ACL reconstruction at three timepoints (about 2 months, 4 months, and 6 months after the surgery). Knee flexion angle at initial contact, peak knee flexion angle, peak vGRF, and peak knee extension moment were calculated for each limb during the early stance phase of gait for all three timepoints.

Bone-Patellar Tendon-Bone Autograft Harvest Prolongs Extensor Latency During Gait Two Years After ACLR.

Med Sci Sports Exerc 2022 Aug 5. Epub 2022 Aug 5.

Department of Biomedical Engineering, University of Delaware, Newark, DE.

Purpose: Bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) graft harvest for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) alters patellar tendon properties which inflict poor quadriceps neuromuscular function. BPTB autografts are associated with higher rates of post-traumatic osteoarthritis which in turn is associated with pathological gait. The purpose of this study was to investigate the latency between the time of peak quadriceps activity and peak knee flexion moment during gait, between those with BPTB grafts (n = 23) and other graft types (hamstring autograft or allografts [n = 54]), 5 ± 2 months and 2-years (25 ± 3 months) following ACLR.

Financial Burden of Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction.

J Pediatr Orthop 2022 Aug 8. Epub 2022 Aug 8.

Department of Orthopaedics, The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD.

Background: High costs and lack of price transparency for common pediatric orthopaedic procedures create financial burden for patients. We assessed (1) how patient medical debt after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) correlates with health insurance type; and (2) factors associated with patient financial burden and worry after ACLR.

Length Changes in the Interosseous Membrane During Forearm Rotation: A 3-Dimensional Study In Vivo.

J Hand Surg Am 2022 Aug 5. Epub 2022 Aug 5.

Department of Hand Surgery, Affiliated Hospital of Nantong University, College of Medicine, University of Nantong, Nantong, China. Electronic address:

Purpose: The length change of the interosseous membrane (IOM) during forearm rotation has not been fully studied. To explore the meaning of length change in the distal oblique band (DOB), the distal accessory band (DAB), and the proximal, middle, and distal parts of the central band (CBP, CBM, and CBD, respectively), we investigated the length change in these ligaments at maximum pronation, 45° of pronation, neutral position, 45° of supination, and maximum supination in vivo.

Methods: The images of the right forearms from 6 healthy volunteers were obtained by computed tomography scanning at the 5 above-mentioned rotation positions. Read More
