Traumatic cartilage lesions of the shoulder, such as glenolabral articular disruption (GLAD), have previously been recognized in patients with shoulder instability. We describe a new lesion in which the entire anteroinferior quadrant of the glenoid articular cartilage is sheared off in association with an adjacent labral tear. Both patients were teenage(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine if patients presenting with symptoms of acute coronary syndrome and found to have 25% to 50% diameter reduction with coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA) are likely to benefit from further diagnostic testing. METHODS A registry study of 213 subjects (median age, 51 years; 53% women) with(More)
OBJECTIVE Prior studies found that young adult chest pain patients without known cardiac disease with either no cardiac risk factors or a normal electrocardiogram (ECG) are at low risk (<1%) for acute coronary syndromes (ACS) and 30-day cardiovascular events. Longer-term event rates in this subset of patients are unknown. We hypothesized that patients(More)
The Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) score, derived from unstable angina/non-ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction patient population, predicts 14-day cardiovascular events. It has been validated in emergency department (ED) patients with potential acute coronary syndrome with respect to 30-day outcomes. Our objective was to determine(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the incidence of knee sepsis after suprapatellar (SP) nailing of open tibia fractures. DESIGN Retrospective; Setting: ACS level 1 trauma center. PATIENTS/PARTICIPANTS We reviewed 139 open tibia fractures that underwent SP nailing as definitive treatment over a 5-year period (January 1, 2011 to January 1, 2016). Most patients (90%,(More)
