We have examined the accuracy of 143 consecutive ultrasound scans of patients who subsequently underwent shoulder arthroscopy for rotator-cuff disease. All the scans and subsequent surgery were performed by an orthopaedic surgeon using a portable ultrasound scanner in a one-stop clinic. There were 78 full thickness tears which we confirmed by surgery or(More)
Rivanol, the cationic salt of an acridine base, has been used as a novel separation procedure in an immunoradiometric assay for human liver ferritin. The separation step is based on the differences in charge and molecular weight between the labelled antibody-ferritin complex and free labelled immunoglobulins. The resultant assay is simple, reproducible and(More)
INTRODUCTION Distal radial fractures are one of the most common fractures that are presented to the emergency department (ed). The management of non-emergent cases often involves closed reduction and immobilisation before referral to orthopaedic services. Surgical intervention is offered based on the criteria for instability. This can be predicted from the(More)
Using human liver ferritin as a model, we have developed a two-site immunoradiometric assay. Sample (or standard) is incubated with excess rabbit antiserum and 125I-labeled specific sheep antibodies directed against different antigenic determinants until equilibrium is reached. Then excess sheep anti-rabbit immunoglobulin G serum, covalently linked to(More)
INTRODUCTION Volar locking plates have revolutionised the treatment of distal radius fractures but complications are not uncommon. We present a cadaveric study and a technical tip to assist in the accurate and reproducible placement of one such plate. STUDY We placed 25-g needles in the distal radioulnar joint and radiocarpal joint and measured the(More)
