OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine if there are magnetic resonance (MR) characteristics of the medial plica that correlate with the likelihood of plica resection. METHODS Sixty-six knee MR examinations from patients who underwent subsequent knee arthroscopy were evaluated retrospectively for the presence of a medial plica. The plicae(More)
SCFE is the most common hip abnormality in adolescence. The subsequent development and severity of degenerative changes is related to the degree of slippage and to delay in diagnosis. Awareness of this diagnostic possibility in the population at greatest risk and knowledge of subtle and early radiographic findings will allow prompt diagnosis and treatment(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this report is to describe the imaging findings of nontraumatic avulsions of the pelvis. CONCLUSION A diagnosis of avulsion fracture of the pelvis in an adult without appropriate history of substantial trauma must raise the suspicion of an underlying malignancy. If a patient has not been diagnosed as having a primary neoplasm,(More)
UNLABELLED Achieving union between host bone and massive structural allografts can be difficult. Donor and recipient human leukocyte antigen (HLA) mismatches and recipient antibody response to donor HLA antigens might affect union. In a prospective multiinstitutional study, we enrolled a consecutive series of patients receiving cortex-replacing, massive(More)
Because of the high local recurrence rate associated with surgical resection alone, patients with diffuse intraarticular pigmented villonodular synovitis were treated with surgical resection followed by colloidal chromic P32 synoviorthesis. The medical records of nine consecutive patients treated in this manner were reviewed retrospectively to determine the(More)
UNLABELLED The incidence and significance of a donor-specific human leukocyte antigen antibody response to massive fresh-frozen human bone allograft implantation is not established. This study was a prospective, multicenter study of a cohort of consecutive patients who self-randomized themselves into two groups based on their alloantibody response to(More)
BACKGROUND Fracture of the thoracolumbar (TL) spine is reported in 8 to 15% of victims of blunt trauma. Current screening of these patients is done with conventional radiography. This may require repeated sets of films and take hours to days. It is imperative that these patients get timely, accurate evaluation to allow for treatment planning and early(More)
PURPOSE We present the imaging features of longitudinal stress fractures in eight patients and evaluate the literature to determine which tests are most useful for making this diagnosis. METHOD Three musculoskeletal radiologists retrospectively reviewed eight cases of longitudinal tibial stress fractures presenting between 1988 and 1994. Reports on 36(More)
