Computer-assisted anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Four generations of development and usage.
The purpose of this paper is to review the literature about the contribution of navigation in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The evolution of computer-assisted surgery (CAS) for ACL reconstruction has undergone several steps. These steps were divided into 4 subsequent developments:...
Platelet-rich plasma and plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and can prove difficult to treat in its most chronic and severe forms. Advanced cases of plantar fasciitis are often associated with ankle stiffness, heel spurs, and other conditions and can lead to extensive physical disability and financial l...
Complications in patellofemoral surgery.
The complexity of patellofemoral morphology, combined with its injuries and degenerative patterns, leads to varied pathologic diagnoses, as well as surgical procedures to address these problems. Surgical procedures in the patellofemoral joint include tibial tubercle osteotomy, medial patellofemoral...
Meniscal treatment options: the present and future.
Rehabilitation after multiple-ligament reconstruction of the knee.
Diagnosis and management of multiple-ligament knee injuries has evolved over the years, and now treatment often includes surgical intervention. Rehabilitation after multiple-knee ligament reconstruction requires a precarious balance between restoring range of motion and function to the knee without...
Initial evaluation of posterior cruciate ligament injuries: history, physical examination, imaging studies, surgical and nonsurgical indicat...
Compared with anterior cruciate ligament injuries, posterior cruciate ligament injuries are a rare event. The mechanisms are predictable and a thorough physical examination is mandatory to rule out or define combined injury patterns. Stress radiography and magnetic resonance imaging studies are very...
The posterior cruciate ligament.
The proximal biceps tendon: tricks and pearls.
The diagnosis and treatment of proximal biceps tendon injuries continue to be a challenge. The difficulty lies on determining if there is isolated biceps pathology versus concomitant rotator cuff tears or instability. Imaging modalities, such as magnetic resonance imaging, continue to provide us wit...
Computer-assisted surgery for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
We review the role of computer navigation in improving the accuracy of tunnel placement, assessing kinematics of the knee, and in training surgeons to correctly perform ACL reconstructions. We report on our experience with navigated ACL reconstruction and describe the kinematic evaluation of a serie...
