Not all rotator cuff tears are created equal, so your surgery should be specialized to your type of tear and symptoms. Dr. Grawe and his team did a study of the different type of repair approaches.
To provide a systematic review of the literature on patterns of retear after single-row (SR), double-row (DR) and suture bridge (SB) techniques.
The PubMed and MEDLINE databases were searched for published articles reporting both repair technique and retear pattern. Studies in languages other than English, those reporting open rotator cuff repair as the index procedure, as well as animal and cadaveric studies and those which did not describe patterns of retear, were excluded. MINORS scoring system was used to quantify potential bias in each study. Retears were classified into type 1 (failure at the tendon-bone interface) and type 2 (medial cuff failure). For all studies included, number and type of retears after different repair techniques were reported and analyzed.
Have you ever wondered how long it would take to get back to sports after multiple ACL injuries? Dr Grawe and his team have done a study on what it takes to get back to sports after an ACL reconstruction.
A systematic review of the literature following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines was conducted for athletes undergoing revision ACL reconstruction at a minimum 1-year follow-up. The primary outcome measure was return to sport following revision ACL reconstruction. Secondary outcomes were International Knee Documentation Committee score, Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score, Tegner and Lysholm scores, KT-1000 arthrometer measurements, and rates of ACL rerupture. A subjective analysis was performed, and data were summarized using forest plots, ranges, and tables.
So very honored to be voted a "Top Doctor" by Cincinnati Magazine for the fifth year in a row.
I feel so very humbled and honored to be voted by my peers as a "Top Doctor" for the third year in a row. It would not be possible without the support from a great team at UCHealth Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine.
A study of human skeletons housed in the vaults of US museums is providing a unique historical perspective on the prevailing wisdom that knee osteoarthritis (OA) is primarily a disease of aging and overweight, factors that are difficult if not impossible to prevent at the population level.
In the recent comparison of bones from different periods, people born in the postindustrial era were substantially more likely to have knee OA than those born earlier, confirming a widespread belief that the condition is becoming more common.
