The Ligamentum of Teres – It’s increasing importance

The ligamentum teres (LT) has attracted much greater interest over recent years due to the increased use of hip arthroscopy. There have been advancements in our understanding of the LT’s biomechanical function and its role in hip and groin pain. Our ability to suspect LT tears by clinical examination and imaging has improved. Publications by many authors concerning LT tear treatment and outcomes continue to increase. This manuscript is a review of the function, mechanism of injury, clinical assessment, imaging, arthroscopic assessment, treatment, outcomes, reconstruction, and unusual conditions of the LT.

Ligamentum Teres injuries – Observational Study of a proposed new arthroscopic classification.

Ligamentum teres (LT) Injuries or tears have been said to be a common cause of groin discomfort and pain, and they have been identified in 8-15% of patients undergoing hip arthroscopy. We propose a new classification, which also takes into account, observed LT pathologies, as well as the possible pathological mechanism of LT tears, and offer a guide to treatment. This classification is based on direct arthroscopic observation and dynamic rotational maneuvers of the hip under distraction. This classification incorporates those pathologies, which have been observed as a result of this more focused examination of the LT.

Wear is Reduced in THA Performed with Highly Cross-linked Polyethylene

Highly crosslinked polyethylene (HCLPE) has been used extensively to decrease osteolysis and related implant failure in THA. We compared the wear rate of HCLPE and noncrosslinked conventional PE (CPE) liners and the rate of radiographic calcar resorption and osteolysis in young patients (35 – 60 years of age) who underwent THA by one surgeon.

Radiographic and Anatomic landmarks to approach the anterior capsule in Hip Arthroscopy

Hip Arthroscopy (HA) is considered to be a very difficult and demanding surgical procedure, special instruments, an image intensifier and a fracture table or hip distractor are required to access the hip joint, the most common and worldwide used HA technique is entering blindly to the central compartment with the use of fluoroscopy and continuous distraction; with the potential danger if performed in unskillful hands of labral penetrations, labral resections and scuffing of the femoral head cartilage. Our technique in HA aiming the anterior capsule using radiographic and anatomic landmarks is safe, reliable and reproducible in FAI with big cams, deep sockets and cases with mild arthritis where the capsule is thick, stiff and calcified.

Range of motion are similar in patients undergoing TKA with posterior stabilised and high-flexion inserts.

It is debatable whether high-flexion (HF) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) designs will improve postoperative flexion and function or will diminish the need for manipulation under anaesthesia (MUA). We retrospectively analysed range of motion (ROM), flexion, Knee Society Score (KSS), and rate of MUA in a consecutive group of patients who underwent TKA with a conventional posterior stabilised (PS) insert or an HF insert using identical surgical technique, implant design, and postoperative care. Our study found that one year after surgery, patients who underwent TKA with a PS or an HF insert achieved similar flexion, ROM, and function.

The Mayo Table Technique in Hip Arthroscopy

The mayo table technique was developed because of the lack of appropriate hip instrumentation and an HFT when the author (A.P.S.) started to perform HA. This easy technique allows the surgeon to control hip maximal range of motion and also to assess completely the cam deformity in the posterolateral, superolateral, anterior, and anteroinferior aspects. It also allows the surgeon to revise where the cam is impinging and afterward perform a complete bony resection and decompression.
