Is Dual Semitendinosus Allograft Stronger Than Turndown for Achilles Tendon Reconstruction? An In Vitro Analysis
14th June 2017, Basic Research
Large Achilles tendon defects pose a treatment challenge. The standard treatment with a turndown flap requires a large extensile incision, puts the sural nerve at risk, and demands slow, careful rehabilitation. Dual allograft semitendinosus reconstruction is a new clinical alternative that has the theoretical advantages of a smaller incision, less dissection, and a stronger construct that may allow for faster rehabilitation.

Patients Older Than 40 Years With Unilateral Occupational Claims for New Shoulder and Knee Symptoms Have Bilateral MRI Changes
9th June 2017, Clinical Research
Minor events that occur in the workplace sometimes are evaluated with MRI, which may reveal age-related changes in the symptomatic body part. These age-related changes are often ascribed to the event. However, evidence of similar or worse pathophysiology in the contralateral joint would suggest that the symptoms might be new, but the pathophysiology is not.

Are There Differences in Gait Mechanics in Patients With A Fixed Versus Mobile Bearing Total Ankle Arthroplasty? A Randomized Trial
6th June 2017, Clinical Research
Total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) is an alternative to arthrodesis, but no randomized trial has examined whether a fixed bearing or mobile bearing implant provides improved gait mechanics.
