OBJECTIVE To evaluate the presence of pulmonary abnormalities in rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-related autoantibody-positive subjects without inflammatory arthritis. METHODS Forty-two subjects who did not have inflammatory arthritis but were positive for anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide antibodies and/or ≥2 rheumatoid factor isotypes (a profile that is 96%(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this 6-hour study was to compare rate of pain relief, analgesic efficacy and tolerability of a novel ibuprofen formulation, ibuprofen sodium dihydrate, with that of ibuprofen acid in subjects with postoperative dental pain. MATERIAL AND METHODS The test formulation of ibuprofen sodium dihydrate (256 mg sodium salt) and the(More)
PURPOSE To determine if overhead-throwing athletes with internal impingement pain and internal rotation deficit have thickening of the posterior inferior labrocapsular complex on MR arthrogram images. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved and a waiver of consent granted by our institutional review board. Twenty-six overhead-throwing athletes with(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate and validate the accuracy and safety of a technique using an anterior approach for non-image-guided intra-articular injection of the hip by use of anatomic landmarks. METHODS We enrolled 55 patients. Injections were performed before supine hip arthroscopy after landmarking and before application of(More)
BACKGROUND The most widely researched risk/complication following vertebroplasty (VP) or kyphoplasty (KP) is that of adjacent level fracture (ALF). Current literature results regarding the effect of intradiscal extravasation of cement on the risk of ALF is conflicting with about half of the studies concluding there is no added risk with endplate(More)
PURPOSE Hypermobility at the thumb carpometacarpal (CMC) joint has been proposed as an explanation for abnormal loading and subsequent development of osteoarthritis. Radiographic evaluation of this joint is difficult owing to the obliquity of the articulation. We modified a previously described technique to obtain a bilateral stress radiograph of the thumbs(More)
BACKGROUND Bony morphological abnormalities of the hip joint are often accompanied by adaptive soft tissue changes. These adaptive changes, if better understood and characterized, may serve to inform clinical decision making. PURPOSE To investigate the correlation between the size of the hip labrum and lateral acetabular coverage in patients at our hip(More)
PURPOSE Increased joint laxity has been associated with the risk of ligament injury and development of osteoarthritis in large joints such as the knee, but this has not been investigated in depth in the hand. We hypothesized that generalized joint laxity would correlate with radiographic measures of trapeziometacarpal (TM) joint subluxation, as measured in(More)
A comprehensive knowledge of normal hip anatomy and imaging techniques is essential in the evaluation and assessment of the patient with hip pain. This article reviews the osseous, soft tissue, and vascular components of the hip and the normal anatomical variants encountered in routine hip imaging. Basic and advanced hip imaging is discussed with particular(More)
