Retrospective Analysis of the Accuracy of Ultrasound-Guided Magnetic Resonance Arthrogram Injections of the Hip in the Office Setting
Our very own Dr. Michael Nuzzo was recently published in the Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine! His study, "Retrospective Analysis of the Accuracy of Ultrasound-Guided Magnetic Resonance Arthrogram Injections of the Hip in the Office Setting," evaluated the accuracy of US-guided magnetic resonance (MR) arthrogram injections of the hip performed in the office setting by a single orthopaedic surgeon and elucidate the potential effects that patient age, sex, and body mass index (BMI) have on contrast placement.
Compression force and pullout strength comparison of bioabsorbable implants for osteochondral lesion fixation.
We conducted a study to characterize compression forces and pullout strengths of 4 commercially available bioabsorbable nails and screws in a synthetic bone model. A piezoelectric sensor was used to measure peak compression forces, and a material testing machine was used to measure maximum pullout strengths.
Biomechanical Comparison of Fracture Risk Created by 2 Different Clavicle Tunnel Preparations for Coracoclavicular Ligament Reconstruction
An anatomic reconstruction of coracoclavicular (CC) ligaments typically requires drilling tunnels in the clavicle. An increase in fracture complications has been associated with graft tunnel position. A method of drilling clavicle tunnels that would better re-create anatomic function of the CC ligaments without increasing fracture risk would be an improvement.
