Ongoing Research

  • MOON Project
  • Bone Bruise Study: The goal of this study is to examine the association of baseline factors with the presence of bone bruise occurances, and to determine if the presence of a bone bruise is associated with knee symptoms and knee pain. Baseline data from a cohort of 525 patients who underwent primary ACL reconstruction at 7 different sites, between 12-13-2006 and 7-18-2008 (based on surg.dt.pt) were included in the study.
  • Suppliment RO1 grant to MOON: This supplement would enable us to evaluate the hypothesis that initial meniscus treatment and/or initial articular cartilage injury in a previously normal knee which undergoes an ACLR are predictors of early OA development at minimum of 2 years follow-up. Quantitative MRI will compare the difference between the ACL reconstructed knee with the contralateral (normal) knee. Further, associations between meniscus volume and thickness, patient-reported outcomes, instrumented knee laxity and joint space narrowing will be performed.
  • Agreement Studies:
    1. ISAKOS Meniscal Documentation Committee: The committee developed a surgical documentation form for a pilot study to quantify interobserver agreement for meniscal tear length, tear depth, location, pattern, quality of the tissue, and the amount of meniscus excised. There are 8 raters that each reviewed 37 arthroscopic vidoes. We have examind the inter-rater reliability of this classification system, and are planning an experiment to assess the intra-rater reliability.
    2. Radiographic Acromial Morphology:
