Patients with breast or prostate cancer routinely referred for bone scintigraphy were evaluated for the presence of skeletal pain, as determined by a self administered questionnaire. Pain was a common finding, whether or not metastatic disease was present, and occurred in over half of patients. Although most patients with bone metastases did report bone(More)
We studied the epidemiology of physiolysis of the hip (or slipped capital femoral epiphysis) between 1946 and 1992 in 175 patients from a well-defined population. The incidence of physiolysis of the hip was calculated using the attack rate method, i.e., the sum of the annual incidences in each 1-year group. The risk of developing physiolysis was 1:998 for(More)
This particular ailment has many designations in the literature but none is quite adequate. Here we use the terminology slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). The anatomy of the proximal femur in all mammals reflects their growth and function. The main forces acting on the head are perpendicular to the growth plate. The thick tear-proof(More)
A photogrammetric method developed for measurement of femoral neck anteversion was used to evaluate the torsion in 28 femoral fractures sustained in childhood and treated conservatively. Spontaneous correction of the initial torsion of 10 degrees to 30 degrees to less than 10 degrees was the rule in a growing femoral bone within 5 to 10 years after trauma.
