Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the knee is potentially devastating for the patient and can result in both acute and long-term clinical problems. Consequently, the ACL has always been and continues to be of great interest to orthopaedic scientists and clinicians worldwide. Major advancements in ACL surgery have been made in the past few years. ACL reconstruction has shifted from an open to arthroscopic procedure, in which a two- and later one-incision technique was applied. Stu...

ABSTRACT. Background. Stair falls are commonamong young children and are also common false histo-ries in cases of child abuse. When a child presents with afemur fracture and a stair-fall history, a judgment ofplausibility must be made. A lack of objective injury andbiomechanical data makes plausibility determinationmore difficult. Our objective was to characterize keyfeatures associated with femur fractures from reportedstair falls, to develop a model for assessing injury plau-sibility (IP). Met...

Purpose: The purposes of this study were to better understand the fetal development of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL); to identify the gross anatomy of the ACL; to perform a complete histologic evaluation of the ligament, particularly with respect to the distinction between bundles; and to evaluate ACL length, diameter, cellularity, vascularity, and insertion sites. Methods: By use of 40 intact knee joints of human fetuses, the gross anatomy of the ACL was inspected under a stereomicroscop...

A retrospective analysis of charts identified cases of superior mesenteric artery (SMA) syndrome occurring after scoliosis surgery over a 23-year period. Despite numerous reports on this potentially fatal complication of scoliosis surgery, no method exists to stratify patients for risk of developing disease after spine surgery. A study of charts was performed to identify all cases of SMA syndrome occurring after scoliosis surgery from 1972 to 1995. An upper gastrointestinal study with findings s...

Growth plate injuries may lead to a progressive angular deformity or longitudinal growth disturbance. The authors investigated the feasibility of gene therapy and tissue engineering based on autologous muscle- and adenoviral-mediated gene transfer of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) to treat tibial physeal defects in rabbits. The medial half of the left proximal tibial growth plate was completely excised in 44 6-week-old New Zealand white rabbits. Fou...

The purpose of this study was to analyze retrospectively pediatric femur fracture patients with concomitant head injury to determine whether time to fracture fixation affects central nervous system, orthopaedic, or additional complications. Twenty-five patients with a Head Abbreviated Injury Scale score of ≥3 and a femoral shaft fracture were reviewed. Patients were divided by time to treatment for their femur fracture. Average stay was 10.5 days for the early group and 18.5 days for the late gr...
