MRI knee vs arthroscopy correlation

Chen Kun-Hui, Chiang En-Rung, Wang Hsin-Yi, Ma Hsiao-Li
The incidence of meniscal tear was reported to increase with the delay of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). The tear may occur concurrently with the ACL injury or after the ACL injury. Few studies had focused on the patients whose meniscus is intact during ACL injury. We determined the correlation between timing of surgery and incidence of meniscal tears in ACL-deficient knees with initially intact meniscus. We retrospectively reviewed 387 patients who had undergone primary ACLR. Time of initial ACL injury, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination, and surgery was recorded...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this OTA-approved pilot study was to compare the clinical and functional outcomes of the knee joint after infrapatellar (IP) versus suprapatellar (SP) tibial nail insertion. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized. SETTING: Level I trauma center. METHODS: After institutional review board approval, skeletally mature patients with OTA 42 tibial shaft fractures were randomized into either an IP or SP nail insertion group after informed consent was obtained...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this OTA approved pilot study was to compare the clinical and functional outcomes of the knee joint after infra - versus supra patellar tibial nail insertion DESIGN:: Prospective, randomized, OTA sponsored, Level I study. SETTING: Level I trauma center METHODS:: After IRB approval, skeletally mature patients with OTA 42 tibial shaft fractures were randomized into either an infra-patellar (IP) or suprapatellar (SP) nail insertion group after informed consent was obtained...

BACKGROUND: The knee joint is the largest and the most complex joint of the human body. It is not covered by any thick muscular covering anteriorly. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to explore the diagnostic capabilities of clinical examination, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and arthroscopy in traumatic disorders of the knee joint, to seek correlation between clinical findings, MRI findings and arthroscopic. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 26 patients with a presentation suggestive of traumatic knee pathology were studied prospectively...

UNLABELLED: The aim of this study is to determine the accuracy of clinical and MRI diagnosis in comparison with arthroscopy for detection of meniscal lesions. Also, to answer if MRI diagnosis impacts on the decision of the surgeon for the choice of treatment (operative or conservative). MATERIAL AND METHODS: We examined 70 patients with knee injuries. Clinical diagnosis was established using the case-history of the patient and positive clinical tests for meniscal injuries (McMurray and Aplay)...

OBJECTIVE: Anterior cruciate ligament tears are frequent and if not diagnosed may lead to relevant patient disability. Magnetic resonance imaging is the method of choice for the non-invasive diagnosis of these tears. Despite the high performance of this method some cases are challenging and the criteria described in the literature are not sufficient to reach a diagnosis. We propose a systematic method for the evaluation of anterior cruciate ligament tears based on the aspect of its distal portion...

BACKGROUND: Repair of a posterior root tear of the medial meniscus (MRT) decreases peak contact pressure by restoring hoop tension and is expected to prevent progression to osteoarthritis. PURPOSE: The purposes of this study were (1) to report the clinical and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results of arthroscopic pull-out repair of the MRT and (2) to identify prognostic factors of poor outcome. STUDY DESIGN: Case series; Level of evidence, 4...

PURPOSE: The aim of this prospective study was to compare the accuracy of clinical examination and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) versus arthroscopic findings and to determine the value of an experienced examiner in clinical decision making. METHODS: A total of 30 patients with a preoperative MRI underwent arthroscopy over a 5-month period. All patients had a clinical examination performed by an experienced knee surgeon, a specialist in general orthopedics, a senior resident, and a fourth-year resident...

PURPOSE: To clinically evaluate MRI of the knee using a highly resolved isotropic fat-saturated (fs) proton-density weighted 3D-TSE-sequence (SPACE) at 3T. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Imaging was performed on a 3T-scanner (Magnetom TRIO). For technical evaluation, sagittally orientated SPACE-datasets (repetition-time [TR], 1200 milliseconds/[TE], 30 milliseconds/voxel-size, 0.5 mm3/acquisition time, 10:35 minutes) were acquired from the dominant knee of 10 healthy volunteers...

The aim of this prospective study was to compare and correlate clinical, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and arthroscopic findings in cases of meniscal tear and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. MRI scan results and clinical diagnosis are compared against the arthroscopic confirmation of the diagnosis. One hundred and thirty-one patients had suspected traumatic meniscal or anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. Clinical examination had better sensitivity (0.86 vs. 0.76), specificity (0.73 vs. 0...
