Purpose: To evaluate the histologic effect(LM and EM findings)of nonablative LASER and thermal energy on knee joint capsule of rabbit. Material and Methods: The nonablative LASER and thermal energy was applied to the rabits(average age 36 weeks, weight 5 ㎏). There were divided into 4 groups with 6 rabbits in each. The group I received 6 watts of LASER, group Ⅱ 12 watts of LASER, group Ⅲ 60° of thermal energy, and group Ⅳ 70° of thermal energy. The histologic study included H-E, Massons trichrome stain and electron microscopy at immediate, 3 weeks and 6 weeks after operation. Results: The histologic finding in immediate after operation was shown a fibrous degeneration of collagen on all groups and related to the energy level. The histologic finding after 3 weeks showed fibrosis and this fibrosis related the level of energy. Especially the group IV was shown flattening of capsule and deep fibrosis. The histologic finding after 6 weeks was shown marked recovery of collagen arrangement and capillary proliferation in group Ⅰ,Ⅱ and Ⅲ. But in the group Ⅳ not recovered. Conclusion: The nonablative LASER or thermal energy can cause degeneration, fibrosis and contracture of joint capsular collagen.

Object: To determine the sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values of an empty can test for diagnosing supraspinatus tendon tear. Methods: We reviewed 146 patients who have shoulder pain with limited active range of motion. We evaluated patients according to empty can test. Sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for supraspinatus test was estimated using arthroscopic evaluation. Results: A hundred and twenty-four of 127 cases with positive empty can test had supraspinatus tendon tear. Of 19 samples with negative empty can test, 15 had no supraspinatus tear. Sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for the empty can test were 97.6%, 83.3%, 97.6%, and 78.9%, respectively. Conclusions: Empty can test was found to have a high sensitivity and good positive predictive value in identifying the tear of rotator cuff tendon. We concluded that empty can test of the shoulder is a reliable diagnostic method which could be used for the diagnosis of rotator cuff tear.

There has been considerable controversy concerning the methods for treatment of dislocation of the acromioclavicular joint, especially in grade III injury. The authors have treated 24 cases of the complete dislocation of the acromioclavicular joint from January 1990 to July 2000. We performed 14 cases of coracoclavicular wiring operation, 10 cases of modified Phemister operation and compared the results and complication of wiring operation with modified Phemister. The clinical results in modified phemister operation were excellent in 8 cases(80%), good in 1 case(l0%), fair 1 case(10%). In wiring operation, excellent is 11 case(78%), good is 2 case(14%), fair is 1 case(14%). The complications of modified Phemister operation were breakage and migration of K-wire in 2 cases. In wiring operation, breakage of wire was in 2 cases but migration was not showed. We prefered coracoclavicular wiring operation for dislocation of acromioclavicular joint of active young adults because of the following advantages: 1) violation of acromioclavicular joint can be avoided but rotation of the clavicle was not restricted. 2) The operation is simple to perform. 3) Postoperative immobilization is minimal. 4) Removal of the wire is easy because wire was not migrated when breakage of wire was occured.

Purpose: To describe a technique of the modified Neviaser method and to evaluate the clinical outcome of the technique in the treatment of the complete acromioclavicular joint dislocation, Materials and Method: We evaluated 20 patients who were treated by a modified Neviaser method from June 1996 to January 1999, They were followed up for a minimum of two years. The operative technique includes fixation of the acromioclavicular joint, repair of coracoclavicular ligament and transfer of the anterolateral band of coracoacromial ligament. Results: The 20 patients were evaluated clinically using Kang's criteria. The satisfactory results obtained in 85%. The mean coracoclavicular interval ratio was decreased from 2.22 preoperatively to 1.07 postoperatively. At the time of two year follow-up, the mean ratio was 1.20. There was no definite complication such as re-dislocation of the joint. Conclusion: In above type 3 acromioclavicular dislocation, the modified Neviaser method provided the advantage of strong and stable fixation with a low complication rate. Therefore, it is thought to be one of the useful operative technique.
Arthroscopic Treatment for Synovial Chondromatosis of the Shoulder Joint (7-Year-Follow-Up) - A Case Report -

Synovial chondromatosis is a rare disease. The knee is the most commonly affected joint but the shoulder joint is very rarely affected. We report typical synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder joint which was managed by arthroscopic removal of multiple loose bodies, synovectomy, good objective and functional outcome was obtained until postoperative 7-year follow-up. Arthroscopy can be used as an effective and useful therapeutic method for synovial chondromatosis of the shoulder joint.

We experienced a rare case of deltoid compartment syndrome by the limb compression during altered consciousness including crush syndrome with myoglobinuric renal failure and report the reviews of those syndromes.
