BACKGROUND Several different methods have been used to repair tibial eminence avulsion fractures. It is not clear which is the best stabilization method. The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical stability of tibial eminence avulsion fractures using suture, resorbable screw, resorbable nail, and metal screw techniques. METHODS Sixteen(More)
The use of surgical drains in patients undergoing thyroid surgery is standard surgical teaching. Life-threatening complications, arising from post-operative haematomas, mandates their utilization. There is increasing evidence to suggest that this is an outdated practice. This paper determines whether thyroid surgery can be safely performed without the(More)
STUDY DESIGN In vitro biomechanical comparison of two methods of pedicle screw placement in cadaveric thoracic spine vertebrae. OBJECTIVE Compare the biomechanical integrity of extrapedicular and transpedicular screw fixation under axial and sagittal pullout loads. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Extrapedicular screw placement has been advocated as a safe(More)
Fifty-six patients in Europe were entered into a multi-centre study to compare the accuracy of technetium 99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (99mTc-MIBI) for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) with thallium 201 (201T1) chloride perfusion scanning. The results showed a high degree of concordance between the two radiopharmaceuticals. Some 81% (678/840)(More)
