PURPOSE To use radiography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging after contrast material opacification of the bursae in cadaveric specimens to demonstrate the anatomy of the bicipitoradial bursa and to report MR imaging findings in patients with bicipitoradial bursitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Bicipitoradial bursa in eight cadaveric elbows were injected with(More)
The fascia lata, or deep fascia of the thigh, is a complex anatomic structure that has not been emphasized as a potential source of pelvic and hip pain. This structure represents a broad continuum of fibrous tissue about the buttock, hip, and thigh that receives contributions from the posteriorly located aponeurotic fascia covering the gluteus medius muscle(More)
OBJECTIVE Conventional radiography, arthrography, CT arthrography, and MR arthrography--including use of the abduction and external rotation position--were compared, with arthroscopic correlation, to determine the spectrum of abnormalities encountered and the relative benefits of each imaging method in the evaluation of shoulder lesions occurring in 17(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the accuracy of MR arthrography in determining the thickness of articular cartilage of the humeral head and glenoid fossa. DESIGN AND PATIENTS MR arthrography of the glenohumeral joint was performed in 17 cadaveric shoulders. Articular cartilage thickness was measured on the MR arthrographic images and corresponding anatomic(More)
The object of this study was to evaluate the effect of a patellar realignment brace on patients with patellar subluxation or dislocation. Twenty-one patients (24 patellofemoral joints) with clinical evidence of patellar subluxation (N = 16) or dislocation (N = 5) were examined with the joint inside a positioning device to allow active-motion, kinematic(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to analyze how different positions of the tibial and femoral tunnels when used for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction affect relations with the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) at different degrees of knee flexion. Information gained from this study may be helpful in determining optimal placement of the graft in ACL(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the MR imaging findings that occur between the posterior inferolateral patellar tendon and the lateral femoral condyle in patients with chronic anterior and or lateral knee pain. PATIENTS AND DESIGN A retrospective review of the MR images in 42 patients who presented with chronic anterior or lateral knee pain was performed by two(More)
Findings at high-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the lateral and medial collateral ligaments of the ankle were compared with findings in anatomic sections from cadavers. MR imaging of six cadaveric feet was performed with a newly developed local gradient coil and axial and coronal T1-weighted spin-echo sequences. Axial imaging provided optimum(More)
We report a rare case of bilateral anterior shoulder dislocation associated with coracoid processes fracture after a seizure episode in a 37-year-old woman. This combination of findings is rare, especially by the presence of bilateral coracoid processes fracture. Possible mechanisms related are direct trauma of humeral heads over the coracoid processes or(More)
We report a case of stress injury of the acromion related to golf practicing in a 40-year-old male. Fractures of the scapula are unusual, with stress injury of the acromion being even rarer. The probable mechanism would be a strong contraction of posterior fibers of the deltoid during golf swing. There are few published reports of similar injuries, and to(More)
