Lesions of the long head of the bicepstendon (BT) are seen in association with tears of the rotator-cuff, particularly lesions of the subscapularis tendon and the rotator-interval. The frequency of positive MR-findings at the BT is approximately 25%. The pathologic alterations include complete medial luxation, subluxation and entrapment by the subscapularis(More)
A 43-year-old woman was evaluated because of a round tumor at the base of the tongue. Scintigraphy with 131I showed radionuclide uptake over the posterior part of the tongue but no uptake at all at the usual pretracheal location. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a well defined round mass of high signal intensity, which was clearly delineated from(More)
A program of detoxification of heroin addicts by the use of oral methadone produced a series of patients who developed pulmonary granulomatous mass lesions as the result of the intravenous use of the oral form of the drug. Talc, used in the preparation of the tablet, seems to be the offending substance. Besides producing a diffuse interstitial granulomatous(More)
A retrospective study of 68 cases of tumours and tumour-like lesions related to the scapula, included in the registry of the Bone Tumour Reference Centre at the Institute of Pathology/University Clinics, Basle, has been carried out. Each case was evaluated for lesion entity, activity and location, age and sex of the patient, and, in 49 files with available(More)
"Whiplash injuries" are frequent sequelae of motor vehicle accidents. While conventional imaging methods such as X-ray, including special and functional lateral projections, continue to be the first-choice evaluation methods, they frequently do not reveal injuries to the soft tissues. Cross-sectional methods such as CT and MRT may therefore be indicated for(More)
High-resolution P-31 MR spectra were obtained in four patients with bone tumors of their distal extremities. In one case the tumor, a Ewing sarcoma of the tibia, was investigated during clinical remission after radiation therapy and chemotherapy. The other three cases - one low-grade chondrosarcoma of the tibial head, one malignant fibrous histiocytoma of(More)
Eight primary leiomyosarcomas of bone were registered in the files of the Basel Bone Tumor Reference Center, Basel, Switzerland, for the period 1972 to 1990. The mean age of the patients (six males and two females) was 43.7 years (range, 11 to 87 years). The tumors were located in the long bones, the fingers, and the clavicle, and presented radiologically(More)
Symptoms in Ménière's disease are explained by hydrops of the endolymphatic system with recurrent ruptures of the membranous labyrinth. The primary cause of the increased endolymphatic volume appears to be an imbalance between secretion and resorption of endolymph which may be due to an obstruction of the endolymphatic duct and sac, located in the(More)
