1. Exam Series: Guide to the Knee Exam

Exam Series: Guide to the Knee Exam Exam Series: Guide to the Knee Exam - CanadiEM Exam Series: Guide to the Knee Exam In by Kathryn Chan June 5, 2018 A 22 year old female comes to emergency department unable to walk. She was in the middle of a rugby game when she caught the ball while pivoting quickly, and was tackled shortly thereafter. She immediately heard a “pop” and says that the swelling in her right leg has increased substantially over the last hour. Background: The knee is a complex (...) hinge joint and one of the most common sites of MSK injuries. Fortunately a diagnosis is usually possible with a good history and physical exam! Four ligaments – the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), medial collateral ligament (MCL), and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) connect the femur to the tibial plateau, ensuring proper alignment and providing stability. Two menisci cushion the articulating surfaces while several bursa further reduce friction around the knee

3. Diagnostic Performance of Knee Physical Exam and Participant-Reported Symptoms for MRI-Detected Effusion-Synovitis among Participants With Early or Late Stage Knee Osteoarthritis: Data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative. (Full text)

Diagnostic Performance of Knee Physical Exam and Participant-Reported Symptoms for MRI-Detected Effusion-Synovitis among Participants With Early or Late Stage Knee Osteoarthritis: Data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative. Evaluate the diagnostic performance of knee physical exam findings and participant-reported symptoms for MRI-detected effusion-synovitis (ES) among knees with early and late-stage osteoarthritis (OA).The Osteoarthritis Initiative (OAI) is a longitudinal study of participants (...) with or at risk for knee OA. Two samples with MRI readings were available: 344 knees with early OA (312 participants) and 216 with late-stage OA (186 participants). Trained examiners performed bulge sign (BS) and patellar tap (PT) exams, and participants reported on knee swelling and pain with leg straightening. Effusion-synovitis on 3T non-contrast MRI was scored using the MRI Osteoarthritis Knee Score (MOAKS). Diagnostic performance of physical exam findings and symptoms was estimated with bootstrapped

Repeat CT imaging revealed subcutaneous and deep thigh soft tissue emphysema extending from the retroperitoneum likely originating from a colonic perforation. An emergent surgery consultation was made; however, the patient and family elected not to pursue surgical intervention, opting instead for comfort measures. The patient expired early (...)

was the injection of 1 mL of triamcinolone 40 mg/mL; the control group received 1 mL of 0.9% normal saline. In both arms, synovial fluid (≤10 mL) was aspirated prior to the injection. Participants attended 9 visits over a 24-month period, which were scheduled at 3-month intervals. Each visit included a knee exam and assessments of pain and stiffness. Participants were also subject to radiographs, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at standardized intervals. From the MRI, mean cartilage thickness (...) Gamechanger?

8. Robotically Simulated Pivot Shift That Represents the Clinical Exam. (PubMed)

Robotically Simulated Pivot Shift That Represents the Clinical Exam. A thorough understanding of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) function and the effects of surgical interventions on knee biomechanics requires robust technologies and simulation paradigms that align with clinical insight. In vitro orthopedic biomechanical testing for the elucidation of ACL integrity doesn't have an established testing paradigm to simulate the clinical pivot shift exam on cadaveric specimens. The study aim (...) was to develop a robotically simulated pivot shift that represents the clinical exam. An orthopedic surgeon performed a pivot shift on an instrumented ACL-deficient cadaver leg to capture 6 degree-of-freedom motion/loads. The same knee was mounted to the robot and the sensitivity of the motion/loading profiles quantified. Three loading profile candidates that generated positive pivot shifts on the instrumented knee were selected and applied to 7 ACL-intact/deficient specimens and resulted

9. I guess that’s positive: soft-embalmed cadavers and a medical student’s journey towards physical exam competency

out a variety of medical conditions. They play an important role in medical education. But, what SPs cannot do is accurately reproduce physical exam findings. For instance, it would be impossible for even the Denzel Washington of SPs to accurately produce the laxity of a knee with an ACL tear. As third- and fourth-year medical students, we are expected to use the physical exam skills learned during the first two years to accurately diagnose patients in the clinical setting. The question (...)
