  • The Fragility Index in Hand Surgery Randomized Controlled Trials. [Journal Article]
  • JHJ Hand Surg Am 2018 Nov 09
  • Ruzbarsky JJ, Khormaee S, Daluiski A
  • CONCLUSIONS: The range of fragility indices reported in the recent hand surgery literature is consistent with previous reporting within orthopedic surgery.The fragility index is a useful metric to analyze the robustness of the study conclusions that should complement other methods of critical evaluation including the P value or effect sizes. Our results emphasize the need for future efforts to strengthen the robustness of RCT conclusions.
  • The Relationship Between Hemihamate Graft Size and Proximal Interphalangeal Joint Flexion for Reconstruction of Fracture-Dislocations: A Biomechanical Study. [Journal Article]
  • JHJ Hand Surg Am 2018 Nov 09
  • Elliott RM, Nayar SK, … Means KR
  • CONCLUSIONS: Nonanatomical hemihamate grafts produce a PIP flexion block at extreme sizes, predicted to occur at greater than 166% of a 50% P2 base articular defect in our model. This suggests that relatively large grafts can be used for reconstruction of PIP fracture-dislocations without substantial biomechanical block to PIP flexion. We suggest sizing no larger than 3 mm past the native P2 volar lip position to avoid an important mechanical block to PIP flexion.The information from this study helps surgeons understand how large a hemihamate graft can be used for P2 volar base reconstruction before having a negative impact on PIP flexion.

  • Assessment of upper extremity function either before or after surgical treatment has been a rapidly evolving field. A reproducible, accurate, and valid assessment tool provides the ability to compare...
  • Visualization During Endoscopic Versus Open Cubital Tunnel Decompression: A Cadaveric Study. [Journal Article]
  • JHJ Hand Surg Am 2018 Nov 09
  • Said J, Frizzell K, … Rivlin M
  • CONCLUSIONS: A 4-cm open incision allowed visualization of approximately 9 cm proximal and 9 cm distal to the medial epicondyle, which was equivalent to the 2-cm endoscopic technique for cubital tunnel release.Although the endoscopic release allows greater visualization of the ulnar nerve with a smaller incision, it is unclear whether this improvement in visualization improves the surgeon's ability to decompress the ulnar nerve.
