►Short-Term Outcomes Following Endoscopic Proximal Hamstring Repair PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of endoscopic proximal hamstring repair (ePHR), specifically: (1) functional and subjective outcomes, (2) effectiveness of treatment (preoperative-to-postoperative change), (3) complications, (4) acute versus chronic tears, and (5) partial versus complete tears. METHODS: A retrospective case series of a single-surgeon database for all patients who underwent ePHR between November 2014 and January 2019 with a minimum 1-year follow-up (range, 12 to 48 months) was performed. Charts were analyzed for preoperative and postoperative passive range of motion (PROM), strength, VAS pain, UCLA activity, and modified Harris Hip Score (mHHS).

►Risk Factors for Requiring a Revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Case-Control Study Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is considered as a successful orthopaedic procedure that attempts to help patients return to their preinjury level of activity. However, some patients may need to undergo revision surgery, and this potentially may be associated with certain surgery-specific or patient risk factors. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to assess the potential role of (1) demographics, (2) family history, (3) graft choice, (4) sport, and (5) mechanism of injury (contact vs. noncontact) in the risk for needing a revision ACL for improved clinical outcomes. All patients who had undergone a primary ACL reconstruction between 2012 and 2016 were identified from at a single institution. About 312 patients who had J Knee Surg 2019 31887765 Festa, Anthony; McInerney, Vincent K.; Scillia, Anthony J.
The local cytokine and growth factor response to recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) after spinal fusion BACKGROUND CONTEXT: The systemic response regarding cytokine expression after the application of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in a rat spinal fusion model has recently been defined, but the local response has not been defined. Defining the local cytokine and growth factor response at the fusion site will help explain the roles of these molecules in the fusion process, as well as that of rhBMP-2. Our hypothesis is that the application of rhBMP-2 to the fusion site will alter the local levels of cytokines and growth factors throughout the fusion process, in a manner that is different from the systemic response, given the tissue-specific effects of rhBMP-2. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the loca The Spine Journal 2018 29550606 Koerner, John D.
