Twenty anatomical specimens were carefully studied in order to establish a possible connection between the posterior interosseous nerve and the radial tunnel syndrome. Our results show that the posterior interosseous nerve distal to the supinator muscle may be compressed by various structures. These include the distal border of the supinator muscle, the(More)
Since 1982 seven patients with volar intercalary segment instability (VISI) have been operated on at the Massachusetts General Hospital. All had preoperative wrist pain and described a painful "clunk" with ulnar deviation. In each case there was palpable evidence of instability when the wrist was deviated ulnarly that produced a "buckling" sensation as the(More)
Axonal regeneration across 64 median nerve grafts in 34 rabbits was studied histologically to determine the optimal conditions for nerve allografting. Axonal regeneration across allografts in cyclosporin A-treated animals was satisfactory, but it occurred more slowly and with more inflammation and fibrosis than in autografts. Without immunosuppression,(More)
Anatomic dissections were done on 18 fresh and 4 preserved cadaver upper extremities to study the pathology of the carpal kinetics and to define the ligaments involved in the volar intercalated segment instability pattern. In a normal wrist, the scaphoid, lunate, and triquetrum all rotate so that their distal surfaces tilt palmarward with radial deviation.(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is one of the most frequently involved pathogens in bacterial infections such as skin abscess, pneumonia, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, and implant-associated infection. As for bone homeostasis, it is partly altered during infections by S. aureus by the induction of various responses from osteoblasts, which are the bone-forming cells(More)
