Kevin Shea, MD

Health care is a team sport, and I work with families and patients to help them develop a team for their recovery and improvement. Patients and families are at the core of this team, and their 'teammates' include office staff, athletic trainers, physical therapists, coaches, teachers and more.

I am very fortunate to work in a healing profession and to be part of a process that improves the lives of our patients and families. It is a privilege to get to know patients and families and be part of the community.

Before going to medical school, I worked as a teacher. I was planning to be a high school teacher and football, soccer and wrestling coach. My high school biology teacher convinced me to become a physician and to work with athletes, much like a coaching. Specializing in orthopedics has allowed me to continue to teach, work with athletes, and watch kids and teens grow and develop. It is a great privilege to care for my patients, and I continue to learn from them every day.

Patellar-Trochlear Morphology in Pediatric Patients From 2 to 11 Years of Age: A Descriptive Analysis Based on Computed Tomography Scanning. Journal of pediatric orthopedics Richmond, C. G., Shea, K. G., Burlile, J. F., Heyer, A. M., Ellis, H. B., Wilson, P. L., Arendt, E. A., Tompkins, M. A. 2019

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Despite the critical role the trochlea plays in patellofemoral (PF) pathology, the development of the trochlea is poorly understood. The purpose of this study was 2-fold: (1) Describe quantitative osseous and soft tissue anatomy of the patella and trochlea in skeletally immature cadaveric specimens utilizing known measurements used in PF instability, and (2) evaluate additional measurement techniques in the sagittal plane as they relate to PF morphologic development.METHODS: Thirty-one skeletally immature fresh frozen cadaveric knees between the ages of 2 and 11 years old were evaluated using 0.625mm computed tomography scans. In the axial plane, measurements included condylar height asymmetry, trochlear facet asymmetry, trochlear depth, osseous sulcus angle, cartilaginous sulcus angle, patella sulcus angle, and tibial tubercle-trochlear groove distance. In the sagittal plane, measurements included previously undescribed measurements of trochlear length and condylar height asymmetry which are based on the anterior femoral cortex.RESULTS: Analysis of trochlear morphology using condylar height asymmetry (both axial and sagittal), trochlear facet asymmetry, and trochlear depth and length demonstrated an increase in the size of the medial and lateral trochlea as age increased. There was more variability in the change of size of the medial trochlea (height, length, and facet length) than the lateral trochlea. The osseous sulcus angle, cartilaginous sulcus angle, and patella sulcus angle decreased (became deeper) with age until after 8 years and then plateaued.CONCLUSIONS: This cadaveric analysis demonstrated that there is an increase in the medial and lateral trochlear height as age increased by all measurements analyzed. The findings also demonstrate that the shape of the patella and trochlea change concurrently, which suggests that there may be interplay between the 2 during development. These new sagittal measurement techniques evaluating the medial, central, and lateral trochlear height and length with respect to age may help guide clinicians when investigating patellar instability in skeletally immature patients.LEVELS OF EVIDENCE: Level IV.

Mechanical and Microstructural Properties of Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligaments and Autograft Tendons Used for Reconstruction. Orthopaedic journal of sports medicine Schmidt, E. C., Chin, M., Aoyama, J. T., Ganley, T. J., Shea, K. G., Hast, M. W. 2019; 7 (1): 2325967118821667

Abstract

Over the past several decades, there has been a steady increase in pediatric anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, particularly in young female basketball and soccer players. Because allograft tissue for pediatric ACL reconstruction (ACLR) has shown high rates of failure, autograft tissue may be the best option for ACLR in this population. However, differences in the structure and mechanical behavior of these tissues are not clear.To characterize the mechanical and microstructural properties in pediatric ACLs and autograft tissues using a rare cadaveric cohort (mean age, 9.2 years).Descriptive laboratory study.ACLs, patellar tendons, quadriceps tendons, semitendinosus tendons, and iliotibial bands (ITBs) were harvested from 5 fresh-frozen pediatric knee specimens (3 male, 2 female) and subjected to a tensile loading protocol. A subset of contralateral tissues was analyzed using bright-field, polarized light, and transmission electron microscopy.Patellar tendons exhibited values for ultimate stress (5.2 3.1 MPa), ultimate strain (35.3% 12.5%), and the Young modulus (27.0 8.8 MPa) that were most similar to the ACLs (5.2 2.2 MPa, 31.4% 9.9%, and 23.6 15.5 MPa, respectively). Semitendinosus tendons and ITBs were stronger but less compliant than the quadriceps or patellar tendons. ITBs exhibited crimp wavelengths (27.0 2.9 m) and collagen fibril diameters (67.5 19.5 nm) that were most similar to the ACLs (24.4 3.2 m and 65.3 19.9 nm, respectively).The mechanical properties of the patellar tendon were almost identical to those of the ACL. The ITB exhibited increased strength and a similar microstructure to the native ACL. These findings are not entirely congruent with studies examining adult tissues.These results can be used to inform further clinical research. In particular, they justify a further examination of the biomechanical and microstructural properties of the ITB in the context of its role as an autograft tissue in pediatric ACL reconstruction.

Mechanical and Microstructural Properties of Native Pediatric Posterior Cruciate and Collateral Ligaments. Orthopaedic journal of sports medicine Schmidt, E. C., Chin, M., Aoyama, J. T., Ganley, T. J., Shea, K. G., Hast, M. W. 2019; 7 (2): 2325967118824400

Abstract

Although anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears have received the most attention, the medial collateral ligament (MCL) is thought to be the most commonly injured knee ligament overall. The lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and posterior collateral ligament (PCL) are less frequently compromised but can be involved in severe multiligament injuries. The paucity of information on the native properties of these ligaments in the pediatric population hinders the overall optimization of treatment for these injuries.To characterize the mechanical and microstructural properties of pediatric MCLs, LCLs, and PCLs using a rare cadaveric cohort (mean age, 9.2 years).Descriptive laboratory study.MCLs, LCLs, and PCLs were harvested from 5 fresh-frozen pediatric knee specimens (3 male, 2 female) and were subjected to a tensile loading protocol. A subset of contralateral tissues from a single donor was analyzed using bright-field, polarized light, and transmission electron microscopy to measure collagen fiber morphology.The pediatric MCL exhibited values for ultimate stress (11.7 6.7 MPa), ultimate strain (18.2% 6.8%), and the Young modulus (93.7 56.5 MPa) that were similar to values for the LCL (11.4 11.5 MPa, 27.7% 12.9%, and 64.4 76.6 MPa, respectively). The PCL demonstrated decreased ultimate stress (4.2 1.8 MPa), increased ultimate strain (28.8% 11.9%), and a decreased Young modulus (19.8 10.4 MPa) when compared with the MCL and LCL. All 3 ligaments had similar mean crimp wavelengths (MCL, 32.8 3.6 m; LCL, 27.2 3.5 m; PCL, 25.8 3.5 m) and collagen fibril diameters (MCL, 88.0 26.0 nm; LCL, 93.3 34.6 nm; PCL, 90.9 34.0 nm); however, the fibril distribution profiles exhibited different modalities.The pediatric MCL and LCL possessed similar mechanical properties, while the pediatric PCL was weaker but capable of withstanding higher amounts of strain. All 3 of these pediatric structures were weaker than what has been reported in studies with adult cohorts.Results from this study can be considered preliminary mechanical and microstructural data for healthy pediatric collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments that can be used to guide further laboratory and clinical research.

Anatomic Dissection and CT Imaging of the Anterior Cruciate and Medial Collateral Ligament Footprint Anatomy in Skeletally Immature Cadaver Knees. Journal of pediatric orthopedics Shea, K. G., Cannamela, P. C., Dingel, A. B., Fabricant, P. D., Polousky, J. D., Anderson, A. F., Ganley, T. J. 2019

Abstract

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and medial collateral ligament (MCL) injuries in skeletally immature patients are increasingly recognized and surgically treated. However, the relationship between the footprint anatomy and the physes are not clearly defined. The purpose of this study was to identify the origin and insertion of the ACL and MCL, and define the footprint anatomy in relation to the physes in skeletally immature knees.Twenty-nine skeletally immature knees from 16 human cadaver specimens were dissected and divided into 2 groups: group A (aged 2 to 5y), and group B (aged 7 to 11y). Metallic markers were placed to mark the femoral and tibial attachments of the ACL and MCL. Computed tomography scans were obtained for each specimen used to measure the distance from the center of the ligament footprints to the respective distal femoral and proximal tibial physes.The median distance from the ACL femoral epiphyseal origin to the distal femoral physis was 0.30cm (interquartile range, 0.20 to 0.50cm) and 0.70cm (interquartile range, 0.45 to 0.90cm) for groups A and B, respectively. The median distance from the ACL epiphyseal tibial insertion to the proximal tibial physis for groups A and B were 1.50cm (interquartile range, 1.40 to 1.60cm) and 1.80cm (interquartile range, 1.60 to 1.85cm), respectively. The median distance from the MCL femoral origin on the epiphysis to the distal femoral physis was 1.20cm (interquartile range, 1.00 to 1.20cm) and 0.85cm (interquartile range, 0.63 to 1.00cm) for groups A and B, respectively. The median distance from the MCL insertion on the tibial metaphysis to the tibial physis was 3.05cm (interquartile range, 2.63 to 3.30cm) and 4.80cm (interquartile range, 3.90 to 5.10cm) for groups A and B, respectively.Surgical reconstruction is a common treatment for ACL injury. Computed tomography scanning of pediatric tissue clearly defines the location of the ACL and MCL with respect to the femoral and tibial physes, and may guide surgeons for physeal respecting procedures.In addition to ACL reconstruction, recent basic science and clinical research suggest that ACL repair may be more commonly performed in the future. MCL repair and reconstruction is also occasionally required in skeletally immature patients. This information may be useful to help surgeons avoid or minimize physeal injury during ACL/MCL reconstructions and/or repair in skeletally immature patients.

Pediatric ACL Tears: Natural History. Journal of pediatric orthopedics Dingel, A., Aoyama, J., Ganley, T., Shea, K. 2019; 39 (Issue 6, Supplement 1 Suppl 1): S47S49

Abstract

Increased participation in youth sports is associated with increased rates of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in the skeletally immature. Historically, ACL reconstruction was avoided in the skeletally immature, or delayed until skeletal maturity, to avoid physeal injury and growth disturbance. Current practices and meta-analyses support early ACL reconstruction in some groups, to allow for return to activities and to avoid delayed cartilage/meniscus injury.The purpose of this article was to report on the natural history of ACL injuries in the skeletally immature.A review of published literature on pediatric, skeletally immature ACL tears and conservative, nonoperative treatment was conducted via Pubmed articles published from 1970 to 2018. The search criteria included the key terms "anterior cruciate ligament," "pediatric" and/or "adolescent," and "conservative" and/or "nonoperative treatment." A PRISMA workflow was used to narrow down the articles to those relevant to our analysis and available in full text format.Multiple articles on the nonoperative treatment of the ACL showed secondary meniscal and cartilage damage at the time of follow-up. Some articles showed no difference between the rates of secondary injuries between the surgical and nonsurgical treatment groups; however, the nonsurgical treatment groups were often on significant activity modification. Some articles concluded that nonoperative treatment of the ACL tear may be appropriate in low risk, lower level activity patients, and those that will comply with activity restrictions. Even with bracing and PT programs, active athletes treated without surgery appear to have a concerning rate of secondary meniscus injury after the primary ACL injury event.The natural history of the ACL tear shows nonoperative treatment for the skeletally immature may be a viable treatment pathway for those who are able to comply with the physical activity restrictions. For the general population of young, active adolescents, an ACL injury treated nonoperatively often leads to secondary meniscal and/or cartilage damage, which may lead to knee degeneration and functional instability.

Identification of Areas of Epiphyseal Cartilage Necrosis at Predilection Sites of Juvenile Osteochondritis Dissecans in Pediatric Cadavers. The Journal of bone and joint surgery. American volume Toth, F., Tompkins, M. A., Shea, K. G., Ellermann, J. M., Carlson, C. S. 2018; 100 (24): 213239

Abstract

BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of human juvenile osteochondritis dissecans (JOCD) remains poorly understood, with multiple factors implicated, including ischemia, repetitive trauma, and genetic predisposition. Similarities in the predilection site and the diagnostic and clinical features of JOCD to the well-characterized veterinary counterpart, osteochondrosis dissecans, suggest that, similar to the animal disease, the pathogenesis JOCD may also be initiated in the first few years of life, when disruption of blood supply to the epiphyseal growth cartilage leads to failure of endochondral ossification. To gather data in support of the hypothesis that JOCD and osteochondrosis dissecans have a shared pathogenesis, biopsy specimens obtained from predilection sites of JOCD in juvenile human cadavers were histologically examined to determine whether they contained lesions similar to those found in animals diagnosed with subclinical osteochondrosis dissecans.METHODS: In this descriptive laboratory study, 59 biopsy specimens (6 mm in diameter) were harvested from the central aspect (i.e., the notch side) of the femoral condyles of 26 human cadavers (1 month to 11 years old). Specimens were histologically evaluated for the presence of areas of cartilage necrosis and the morphology of cartilage canal blood vessels.RESULTS: Locally extensive areas of necrotic epiphyseal cartilage were identified in 4 specimens obtained from 3 donors (ages 2 to 4 years). Areas of cartilage necrosis accompanied by focal failure of endochondral ossification or surrounded by subchondral bone were identified in biopsy specimens from 4 donors (ages 4 to 9 years).CONCLUSIONS: The identification of epiphyseal cartilage necrosis identical to that described in animals with subclinical osteochondrosis, found in biopsy specimens obtained from femoral predilection sites of JOCD in pediatric cadavers, suggests a shared pathogenesis of JOCD in humans and osteochondrosis dissecans in animals.CLINICAL RELEVANCE: These findings imply that the pathogenesis of human JOCD likely starts 5 to 10 years prior to the development of clinical symptoms. Enhanced understanding of the temporal features of JOCD pathogenesis provides an opportunity for earlier diagnosis and treatment, likely resulting in improved outcomes for this condition in the future.

G., Dingel, A. B., Milewski, M. D., Ellis, H. B., Wilson, P. L., Mayer, S. W., Ganley, T. J., Shea, K. G. 2018; 5 (1): 50

Abstract

PURPOSE: Meniscal repair has become increasingly common in a pediatric and adolescent population. All-inside repair techniques are utilized more often given their ease of insertion and decreased operative time required. However, there are possible risks including damage to adjacent neurovascular structures. The purpose of this study to was examine the proximity of the neurovascular structures during lateral meniscus repairs in pediatric specimens simulating a worst-case scenario.METHODS: Ten pediatric cadaveric knees (age 4-11) were utilized and simulated lateral meniscal repair through the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus and both medial and lateral to the popliteal hiatus through the body of the lateral meniscus was performed with an all-inside meniscal repair device. The distance to the popliteal artery or peroneal nerve was measured.RESULTS: During posterior horn repair, the average distance from the all-inside device to the popliteal artery was 1.9mm1.1mm. There was penetration of the artery in one specimen. During repair on the medial side of popliteal hiatus, the average distance from the all-inside device to the peroneal nerve was 3.2mm2.0mm. During repair on the lateral side of popliteal hiatus, the average distance from the all-inside device to the peroneal nerve was 12.4mm3.7mm.CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that the proximity of the neurovascular structures to the lateral meniscus in children is extremely close and at high risk during meniscal repair with all-inside devices. This study gives important data for the proximity of these structures during these repair techniques.LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Level 5 Cadaveric Study.

Abstract

Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the elbow is a disorder of subchondral bone and articular cartilage, of which the incidence among children is not clearly known.To assess the demographics and epidemiology of OCD of the elbow among children.Cross-sectional study; Level of evidence, 3.A retrospective chart review of an integrated health system for the years 2007 through 2011 was performed for patients with elbow OCD aged 2 to 19 years. Lesion location, laterality, and all patient demographics were recorded. OCD incidence was determined for the group as a whole as well as by sex and age group (2-5, 6-11, 12-19 years). Patient differences based on age, sex, and ethnicity were analyzed, and multivariable logistic regression models were used to assess the risk of elbow OCD by group.A total of 37 patients with 40 OCD lesions fit the inclusion criteria. No lesion was found among 2- to 5-year-olds. A majority of lesions (n = 39, 97.5%) were in the capitellum, and 1 (2.5%) was in the trochlea. Twenty-five patients (67.6%) had right-sided lesions; 9 (24.3%), left-sided; and 3 (8.1%), bilateral. The incidence of elbow OCD for patients aged 6 to 19 years was 2.2 per 100,000 overall and 3.8 and 0.6 per 100,000 for males and females, respectively. The majority of OCD cases were seen in those aged 12 to 19 years, with an incidence of 3.4 per 100,000 versus 0.38 among 6- to 11-year-olds. Multivariable logistic regression analysis revealed a 21.7-times increased odds ratio of elbow OCD among patients aged 12 to 19 years versus 6 to 11 years, and males had a 6.8-times greater odds ratio of elbow OCD than females (P < .0001 for both). Based on race and ethnicity, non-Hispanic whites had the highest incidence of elbow OCD as compared with all other ethnic groups.In this population-based cohort study of pediatric elbow OCD, males had almost 7 times the risk of elbow OCD as compared with females, and 12- to 19-year-olds had nearly 22 times the risk of elbow OCD versus 6- to 11-year-olds. In keeping with many prior studies, the majority of patients had right-sided lesions.
