The medialcollateral ligament (MCL) is the most commonly injured ligament ofthe knee. Given its extra-articular location, the MCL hasgreat healing capacity such that the mainstay of treatment for most injuries remainsconservative management. However, certain injury patterns place patients andathletes at risk of residual valgus laxity, which may require delayed surgicalcare and prolonged time out from sports. Although controversy remains regardingthe optimal treatment of grade III MCL injuries, it is generally accepted that MCL ruptures from thedistal tibia attachment require operative fixation. This technique article withaccompanying video provides a detailed description of a technique for repairingthe distal MCL attachment with suture augmentation....ReadMore">

The use of aquadriceps tendon-patellar bone (QTPB) autograft provides an alternativeprocedure in primary reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Using the press-fit technique forfemoral fixation and knotting over a bone bridge as well as additionalspongiosa filling for tibial fixation can completely eliminate the need forfixation implants. The objective of this study was to evaluate the long-termclinical, functional and radiological results of this operating method....ReadMore ">

Rheumatoidarthritis (RA) is achronic, inflammatory disease that affects 1% of the general population.Fatigue is a common complaint of patients with RA, however their perceivedfatigue may be more exacerbated than objective measures of fatigue mayindicate. The assessment of fatigue is made complex due to inconsistent andvague terms used to define fatigue, and the task dependence offatigability.  In order to offer someclarity to the manifestation of fatigue in clinical populations, this reviewoutlines that fatigue should be described with subsections that are related tothe symptom, such as: perceived fatigability and performance fatigability. Thisreview also describes RA and the various neuromuscular changes associated withthe disease that can lead to alterations in both perceived and performancefatigue....ReadMore ">

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a highly debilitating joint disease thatcauses progressive, irreversible damage to articular cartilage. OA takes amassive toll on society that has grown in recent decades, but no therapy hasbeen shown to halt or reverse the progression of the disease. The critical needfor better treatments and increased interest cellular therapies has spawned anew generation of "minimally manipulated" cell treatments. Autologousadipose tissue injections are among the most controversial of these newtreatments. Despite a lack of clinical evidence, adipose tissue injections areoften marketed as "stem cell" injections with wide-rangingregenerative benefits. The purpose of this study is to estimate the effect sizeof the treatment by comparing the efficacy of autologous fat to hyaluronic acid(HA)...ReadMore ">
