This case report of a 9-year-old girl with corticosteroid induced femoral head necrosis demonstrates effective treatment with an abduction device in a manner similar to that prescribed for the treatment of Legg-Calve-Perthes disease.
PURPOSE Sixty-eight skeletally mature New Zealand white rabbits were used to study the effects of iontophoresis- and injection-delivered sodium phosphate dexamethasone (DX) on the morphologic, histologic, microscopic, and biomechanical properties of uninjured rabbit patellar tendons over an initial 14-d period. METHODS Three control (untreated, placebo(More)
