Anterior instability of the glenohumeral joint with humeral avulsion of the glenohumeral ligament. A review of 41 cases. (1/489)

We studied retrospectively a consecutive series of 547 shoulders in 529 patients undergoing operation for instability. In 41, the cause of instability was considered to be lateral avulsion of the capsule, including the inferior glenohumeral ligament, from the neck of the humerus, the HAGL lesion. In 35, the lesion was found at first exploration, whereas in six it was noted at revision of a previous failed procedure. In both groups, the patients were older on average than those with instability from other causes. Of the primary cases, in 33 (94.3%) the cause of the first dislocation was a violent injury; six (17.4%) had evidence of damage to the rotator cuff and/or the subscapularis. Only four (11.4%) had a Bankart lesion. In patients undergoing a primary operation in whom the cause of the first dislocation was a violent injury, who did not have a Bankart lesion and had no suggestion of multidirectional laxity, the incidence of HAGL was 39%.  (+info)

Injury and reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament and knee osteoarthritis. (2/489)

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to study injury and reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and their effects on knee osteoarthritis. DESIGN: This manuscript discusses the function of knee ligaments, including the basic mechanical properties, the structural properties of their respective bone-ligament-bone complexes, as well as their time- and history-dependent viscoelastic characteristics. The in-situ forces in the ACL and its replacement grafts and knee kinematics before and after ACL reconstruction are also examined. RESULTS: A robotic/universal force-moment sensor (UFS) testing system has been developed which offers a unique method in determining the multiple-degree of freedom knee kinematics and in-situ forces in human cadaveric knees. Under a 110 N anterior tibial load we found at flexion angles of 15 degrees or lower, there was a significantly larger in-situ force in the PL bundle (approximately 75 N) of the ACL as compared to the AM bundle (approximately 35 N)(P < 0.05). We also found that a quadruple semitendinosus and gracilis tendon ACL graft may be better at fully restoring in-situ forces for the whole range of knee flexion when compared to a bone-patellar tendon-bone ACL graft. CONCLUSIONS: The robotic/UFS testing system allows us to determine knee kinematics and the in-situ forces in cadaveric knees in a non-invasive, non-contact manner. Additionally, the ability to reproduce kinematics during testing allows us to evaluate ACL and ACL graft function under external and simulated muscle loading conditions. Finally, we can also examine many of the variables of ACL reconstructions that affect knee kinematics and graft forces including graft tensioning, graft type, graft placement and tibial positioning during graft fixation.  (+info)

Changes in biomechanical properties of tendons and ligaments from joint disuse. (3/489)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this paper is to review changes in the biomechanical properties of tendons and ligaments from joint disuse. METHOD: We have reviewed 37 experimental studies on joint disuse, which have been carried out with various models of disuse and with various animals. RESULTS: Immobilization of joints has most commonly been used as a model of disuse. Immobilization of the joint deteriorates the mechanical properties of tendons and ligaments, and reduces their cross-sectional area, although there are some differences in the speed of deterioration among tissues. Remobilization returns the mechanical properties once reduced by immobilization to nearly normal quickly, although the structural properties of the bone-ligament-bone complex continue to lag behind those of the controls. Stress deprivation has been regarded as an essential causative factor in joint disuse. Even if joint motion is allowed, stress deprivation rapidly reduces the mechanical properties of the tendon and ligament tissues, and increases the cross-sectional area of them. These effects appear time- and dose-dependent. Restressing increases the mechanical properties once reduced by stress deprivation, although it takes much time to completely recover them. The reduction of the ultimate stress may be explained by the reduction of the total area of collagen fibrils in tendon cross-section and the increase of thin and immature fibrils.  (+info)

Molecular biology and biomechanics of normal and healing ligaments--a review. (4/489)

OBJECTIVE: In this review article, we discuss current data and concepts concerning the molecular biology and biomechanics of both normal and healing ligaments in a rabbit model. METHOD: Data is presented from light microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, molecular biology (RT-PCR), and biomechanical measurements (laxity, stress at failure, modulus, and static creep) or normal, pregnant and healing rabbit medial collateral ligaments. RESULTS: 'Flaws' in scar matrix, smaller-than-normal diameter collagen fibrils, and failure of collagen cross-link maturation may be particularly important deficiencies which appear to be related to ligament scar weakness and perhaps to scar creep. The mechanical behaviours of both normal and healing ligaments are altered by relative states of joint motion and normal ligaments are affected by systemic hormones (particularly during pregnancy). DISCUSSION: Molecular analysis of ligaments and ligament scars, combined with ongoing morphological and biomechanical studies of ligament structure and function, will ultimately reveal which factors can be manipulated clinically to optimize the restoration of normal ligament properties after ligament injuries. Further studies on the mechanisms of ligament healing, genetic markers of repair, and gender-specific differences in ligament repair responses are required.  (+info)

The wrist of the formula 1 driver. (5/489)

OBJECTIVES: During formula 1 driving, repetitive cumulative trauma may provoke nerve disorders such as nerve compression syndrome as well as osteoligament injuries. A study based on interrogatory and clinical examination of 22 drivers was carried out during the 1998 formula 1 World Championship in order to better define the type and frequency of these lesions. METHODS: The questions investigated nervous symptoms, such as paraesthesia and diminishment of sensitivity, and osteoligamentous symptoms, such as pain, specifying the localisation (ulnar side, dorsal aspect of the wrist, snuff box) and the effect of the wrist position on the intensity of the pain. Clinical examination was carried out bilaterally and symmetrically. RESULTS: Fourteen of the 22 drivers reported symptoms. One suffered cramp in his hands at the end of each race and one described a typical forearm effort compartment syndrome. Six drivers had effort "osteoligamentous" symptoms: three scapholunate pain; one medial hypercompression of the wrist; two sequellae of a distal radius fracture. Seven reported nerve disorders: two effort carpal tunnel syndromes; one typical carpal tunnel syndrome; one effort cubital tunnel syndrome; three paraesthesia in all fingers at the end of a race, without any objective signs. CONCLUSIONS: This appears to be the first report of upper extremity disorders in competition drivers. The use of a wrist pad to reduce the effects of vibration may help to prevent trauma to the wrist in formula 1 drivers.  (+info)

The popliteofibular ligament. An anatomical study of the posterolateral corner of the knee. (6/489)

We designed an experimental study to prove the existence of the popliteofibular ligament (PFL) and to define its role in providing static stability of the knee. We also examined the contribution of the lateral collateral ligament (LCL). We found this ligament to be present in all eight human cadaver knees examined. These specimens were mounted on a specially designed rig and subjected to posterior, varus and external rotational forces. We used the technique of selective sectioning of ligaments and measured the displacement with a constant force applied, before and after its division. We recorded the displacement in primary posterior translation, coupled external rotation, primary varus angulation and primary external rotation. Statistical analysis using the standard error of the mean by plotting 95% confidence intervals, was used to evaluate the results. The PFL had a significant role in preventing excessive posterior translation and varus angulation, and in restricting excessive primary and coupled external rotation. Isolated section of the belly of popliteus did not cause significant posterolateral instability of the knee. The LCL was also seen to act as a primary restraint against varus angulation and secondary restraint against external rotation and posterior displacement. Our findings showed that in knees with isolated disruption of the PFL stability was restored when it was reconstructed. However in knees in which the LCL was also disrupted, isolated reconstruction of the PFL did not restore stability.  (+info)

Extensor carpi radialis brevis. An anatomical analysis of its origin. (7/489)

We studied the origin of extensor carpi radialis brevis using 40 fresh frozen human cadaver specimens. Ten were stained with haematoxylin and eosin and trichrome which showed the collagenous structure of the extensor tendons at their origin. Gross anatomical observation showed that there was no definitive separation between brevis and communis at the osseotendinous junction. The histological findings confirmed the lack of separation between the two tendons. The extensor tendons were in close proximity to the joint capsule but trichrome staining showed no interdigitation of the tendon with the capsule. The validity of ascribing the pain of lateral epicondylitis to extensor carpi radialis brevis must be questioned. It appears to arise more from the 'common extensor' origin.  (+info)

Acute knee injuries: use of decision rules for selective radiograph ordering. (8/489)

Family physicians often encounter patients with acute knee trauma. Radiographs of injured knees are commonly ordered, even though fractures are found in only 6 percent of such patients and emergency department physicians can usually discriminate clinically between fracture and nonfracture. Decision rules have been developed to reduce the unnecessary use of radiologic studies in patients with acute knee injury. The Ottawa knee rules and the Pittsburgh decision rules are the latest guidelines for the selective use of radiographs in knee trauma. Application of these rules may lead to a more efficient evaluation of knee injuries and a reduction in health costs without an increase in adverse outcomes.  (+info)

Image courtesy Science Daily. Several years ago I tore my ACL. I sat with the orthopedist and he showed me a model of the knee to explain where the ACL was, what it did, and how they took other bits of tendon to replace it. I was left with the impression that surgeons know exactly whats in there, but a new study indicates theyve discovered a previously unknown ligament!. Yes, apparently theres another one in there, the Anterorlateral Ligament or ALL. The new theory is that this ligament causes the pivot shift sensation when you tear your ACL. Pivot shift is what I used to describe as two things in my knee just moved and rubbed together that arent supposed to, this cant be a good sign, and I had that quite a bit in the month between tearing my ACL and having surgery. Now, luckily I havent experienced it since the surgery, but according to the study this explains why some people do. This is all good news in the long run, especially for women, who are at a higher risk of ACL tears. The ...

This week we are going to discuss one of the most misunderstood injuries on the field…the high ankle sprain. Most ankle sprains occur low in the ankle and generally on the outside including the anterior talofibular ligament, the calcaneofibular ligament and the posterior talofibular ligament. These are long words which describe the origin and insertion of the ligaments which control motions of the ankle primarily in inversion and plantar flexion (turning in and pointing toe down). The high ankle sprain on the other hand is none of these ligaments although it can be combined with a standard ankle sprain.. The high ankle sprain consists of a tearing of the syndesmosis which is a special kind of joint between two bones. This joint is between the tibia (the large gone in the lower leg) and the fibula (small bone in the lower leg). When the syndesmosis is torn or disrupted in the ankle, it is referred to as a high ankle sprain. The syndesmosis is comprised of the anterior and posterior tib fib ...

Syndesmosis is a term used to define a group of ligaments that surround the ankle joint. These ligaments are part of the plantar fascia, which helps stabilize your foot during walking or running.

However, there are several risk factors that increase your chances of developing this condition:. Obesity - People with high levels of body fat tend to have a higher ...
Anterior Talofibular ligament - (weak) anteriomedial band from lateral malleolus to neck of the talus. This one is the weakest, and is the ligament that tears most often in ankle sprains.. TEST - anterior draw test: grab the heel, stabilise the calf, and see if you can pull the foot toward you. You should feel an end point, if there is some give (or lots of pain, the ATFL is probably gone).. Posterior Talofibular ligament - (strong) horizontal band malleolar fossa to lateral tubercle of talus. Calcaneofibular ligament - posterioinferiorly from the tip of the lateral malleolus to the lateral surface of the calcaneus. TEST - stabilise the lower limb and invert the foot under stress. There should be an end point, if there isnt the ligament is probably broken. This is painful! Most of the time patients stop us doing this test, so its utility is marginial.. From our point of view these three ligaments are the most common to tear or break. The distinction to a certain degree is academic in the ...
Dr Papaliodis in Forth Worth, Keller and Southlake, TX performs arthroscopic knee ligament reconstruction surgery to treat knee ligament injuries.
A high ankle sprain is an injury to the joint created by the distal tibia and fibula and the anterior tibiofibular ligament, the transverse ligamnet, the posterior inferior tibiofibular ligament and the interosseous ligament. The mechanism of injury is forceful dorsiflexion, external rotation, or in less frequent cases it can be injured in a plantarflexion inversion action. In the case of a high ankle sprain conservative treatment may not be an option. If the syndesmosis is torn, since it accounts for a large portion of ankle instability, surgery may be indicated. Another important note is the fact that it has been documented that an injury involving the syndesmosis takes twice as long to rehabilitate as a grade III ankle sprain1,7,9.. ...

Stiffness (0.67) and torque (16.0 N/m) did not significantly decrease after sectioning of the ATFL (0.615 and 15.5 N/m, respectively), but decreased significantly (by 37% to 0.49 and 12.2 N/m) after sectioning of the CFL. Peak pressures in the tibiotalar joint decreased significantly following CFL release compared to both the uninjured ankle and ATFL-only release. Mean contact area significantly increased following CFL release compared to both the uninjured ankle and ATFL-only release. There was a concentration of force in the anteromedial ankle joint during weight-bearing inversion. After ATFL release, the center of force (COF) shifted 0.83 mm further anteromedially compared to the uninjured ankle, approaching the medial shoulder of the talar dome. The COF shifted 1.22 mm posteromedially after CFL release relative to an intact ankle. Motion capture showed a significant, sequential increase in inversion angle of both the calcaneus and talus. There was significantly more inversion in the subtalar ...

Sprains are the most common injuries of the ankle, and the ligaments that surround the ankle joint are the most commonly injured ligaments in the body. There are three levels of severity of sprains. Grade 1 refers to simple over-stretching of the ligaments without any structural damage, grade 2 refers to partial tearing of the ligament, and grade 3 happens when there is complete tearing of the involved ligament. Usually an inversion (inward rotation) injury will produce a sprain of the ligaments at the ankle. A similar injury can occur as the result of outward rotation (eversion). Eversion involves over-stretching of the deltoid ligament, which is very strong and unlikely to sprain; therefore, instead of a sprain severe eversions result in fracture of the bones that are held together by the deltoid ligament. The most common symptoms of sprain are pain, tenderness, and swelling in the area of ligament damage. Bruising (contusion) may also occur. Contusion is the result of damage to the blood ...

Two intrinsic (scapholunate and lunotriquetral) and two extrinsic (radiolunate and radiocapitate) wrist ligaments were studied at high and low elongation rates (1 and 100 mm/min). Statistically significant differences among all four ligaments were noted for the viscoelastic and elastic components of stress versus strain for the fully recoverable strain and early permanent deformation stress for all ligaments. Intrinsic ligaments became permanently deformed at statistically significantly higher strain levels than the extrinsic ligaments and accept larger permanent deformation at strain levels below evident fiber failure. Ultimate strength data demonstrated significant rate dependency for stress and strain for all ligaments. Intrinsic ligaments failed statistically greater stress and strain levels than the extrinsic group. Some clinical implications of these findings are discussed.. ...

The three major ligaments of the hip joint, the iliofemoral, pubofemoral, and ischiofemoral, form a strong sheath around the fibrous capsule. The iliofemoral ligament is argued to be the strongest ligament in the human body. Often called the Y-shaped ligament it passes superior and anterior to the joint, running from the anterior inferior iliac spine to the intertrochanteric line. With the thinner pubofemoral and ischiofemoral ligaments it spirals around the joint to strongly stabilize this powerful joint. In addition to these large ligaments, a triangular flat band, the ligament of the head of the femur, extends from the fovea of the femoral head to the margins of the acetabular fossa. This ligament is also important because it functions as a pathway for blood vessels that supply the bone in the head of the femur ...

The blood pressure in blood vessels is traditionally expressed in millimetres of mercury (1 mmHg = 133 Pa). In the arterial system, this is usually around 120 mmHg systolic (high pressure wave due to contraction of the heart) and 80 mmHg diastolic (low pressure wave). In contrast, pressures in the venous system are constant and rarely exceed 10 mmHg. Vascular resistance occurs where the vessels away from the heart oppose the flow of blood. Resistance is an accumulation of three different factors: blood viscosity, blood vessel length, and vessel radius.[2] Blood viscosity is the thickness of the blood and its resistance to flow as a result of the different components of the blood. Blood is 92% water by weight and the rest of blood is composed of protein, nutrients, electrolytes, wastes, and dissolved gases. Depending on the health of an individual, the blood viscosity can vary (i.e. anemia causing relatively lower concentrations of protein, high blood pressure an increase in dissolved salts or ...

  • The knee is a complex joint made up of different structures including bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles. (
  • Background: The injury repair process in tendons and ligaments includes different phases such as inflammation, neovascularization, fibroblast proliferation and fibrosis. (
  • The aim of this study is to describe by histochemistry techniques the characteristics of tissue scar, collagen type in the repair process of tendons and ligaments, as well as articular cartilage degeneration.Materials, Methods & Results: Tissue samples of equine tendons, ligaments and articular cartilage of the metacarpophalangeal joint region were evaluated by ultrasonography, macroscopically and prepared for routine histopathology (H&E staining). (
  • The inclusion criterion of the samples in this study was based on the presence of lesions characterized in H&E stain as fibroplasia, neovascularization, collagenolysis, chondroid metaplasia in tendons and ligaments and fibrillation and cartilaginous eburnation lesions in the articular cartilage samples. (
  • The Massons trichrome, Picrosirius red and Alcian blue staining techniques were also performed in addition to H&E. Pathologic findings in the tendons and ligaments included fibroplasia, collagenolysis, chondroid metaplasia and lymphohistioplasmacytic inflammation. (
  • Tendons and ligaments scars were composed of type III collagen but there was also some type I collagen. (
  • Fiber alignment of tendons and ligaments in the reorganization tissue was not flawless and the fiber appearance was characterized by a lack of the fiber crimp and parallelism. (
  • Adult stem cells are most commonly obtained from the bone marrow, specifically the mesenchymal stem cells, which have the ability to replicate into cells that form the musculoskeletal system such as tendons, ligaments, and articular cartilage. (
  • They are also being used in the treatment of various soft tissue (muscle, ligaments, and tendons) as well as bone-related injuries. (
  • Connective tissues consist of ligaments, cartilage and tendons. (
  • Injuries to ligaments and tendons also cause knee problems. (
  • Muscles and muscle tendons are more important in structural integrity of the knee joint than ligaments. (

  • In addition, ligament is used to refer to remnants of a tubular structure from the fetal period of life, such as the medial umbilical ligament, which is found on anterior abdominal wall and represents the remnant of the fetal umbilical arteries, but which serves no purpose in humans after birth and is shriveled in adults. (
  • Similar to the disease progression in humans, sequential events of early cartilage degradation, subchondral osteopenia followed by sclerosis, and late osteophyte formation were demonstrated in the anterior cruciate ligament transection (ACLT) or ACLT with partial medial meniscectomy (ACLT + MMx) rat OA models. (
  • To evaluate outcomes in 36 dogs with a partial cranial cruciate ligament (CCL) tear treated with autologous bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) or adipose-derived progenitor cells (ADPC) with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) combination. (
  • Marrow stimulant procedures are used to release stem cells from the bone marrow to encourage healing of these articular cartilage defects. (
