In 7 cases of fracture of the humerus occurring in arm wrestlers, each patient sustained a simple spiral fracture of the distal third of the humerus. No patient had any neural or vascular compromise. Three patients underwent open reduction and internal fixation with 2 screws, at which time, muscle was found to be interposed between the fracture fragments.(More)
In the flexible pes planovalgus deformity of stage 2 posterior tibial tendon dysfunction, osteotomies appear to have a significant role in operative management by restoring more normal biomechanics, allowing tendon transfers to function successfully. The options when considering osteotomies for stage 2 disease include lateral column lengthening, medial(More)
Eleven patients with medial impingement syndrome of the anterior tibio-talar fascicle (ATTF) of the deltoid ligament on the talus were identified. Six sustained inversion injuries, one talus and four ankle fractures. The mean preoperative Ankle-Hindfoot Scale (AHS) was 56 and the postoperative was 87. Surgical debridement of the ATTF was performed. A(More)
Polar membrane glycerolipids occur in a mixture of molecular species defined by a polar head group and characteristic acyl groups esterified to a glycerol backbone. A molecular species of phosphatidylglycerol specific to chloroplasts of plants carries a Delta(3-trans) hexadecenoic acid in the sn-2 position of its core glyceryl moiety. The fad4-1 mutant of(More)
Subtalar joint dislocations, although not common, have been increasing in frequency over the last decade. Generally, subtalar joint dislocation can be treated successfully with closed reduction and a short period of cast immobilization. The majority of patients will suffer minimal disability, with subtalar joint stiffness as the primary complaint. This(More)
Approximately 10% of calcaneal fractures develop compartment syndromes of the foot, and of these, one half develop clawing of the lesser toes and other foot deformities, including stiffness and neurovascular dysfunction. Tense swelling and severe pain are the hallmarks of an impending compartment syndrome. The diagnosis is confirmed by multistick invasive(More)
Twelve cases of compartment syndrome of the foot in 10 patients were retrospectively reviewed. All were high-energy injuries sustained in a fall from a height (six), crush (three), or motor vehicle accident (three). Bone injuries of the foot included five calcaneal fractures, three multiple metatarsal and/or phalangeal fractures, and two Lisfranc(More)
FCS is a recognized clinical entity that has few consistent clinical signs except tense swelling. A high degree of clinical suspicion is necessary to provide appropriate treatment. Invasive direct pressure monitoring is needed to diagnose FCS. High-energy injuries are known to cause FCS, but individual risk factors, such as prolonged venous occlusion and(More)
BACKGROUND Gymnastics is a competitive and popular sport that is started at an early age, and elite female gymnasts reach their prime in mid-teenage years. The level of intensity of practice and competition, the number of events, and the degree of difficulty of the maneuvers make gymnastics one of the most injury-producing sports. METHODS Over a 3-year(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a salvage procedure for failed fixation of ankle fractures that occurs in patients with sensory neuropathy. Six patients, with insensitivity to a 5.07 monofilament on the plantar surface of their foot (five with diabetes mellitus, one with alcoholic peripheral neuropathy) presented to a foot and ankle referral center(More)
