OBJECTIVE To differentiate between benign and malignant lesions of the lung, 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (18F-FDG-PET) has limitations such as a lower specificity in cases of non-specific inflammation. The positive predictive value is unsatisfactory in countries where inflammatory lung disorders are prevalent. We present the(More)
OBJECTIVES The prevalence of insomnia is very high in our society. Although pharmacological treatment of insomnia is available, most hypnotics have been shown to alter sleep architecture and have many adverse effects. Gabapentin was originally designed for antiepileptic therapy; however, some studies reported that its use increases slow-wave sleep in(More)
BACKGROUND Accurate femoral rotational alignment is of vital importance for successful total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The value of computer-assisted surgery TKA (CAS-TKA) in increasing the accuracy of femoral rotational alignment remains controversial. We hypothesize that outcomes are related to the severity of preoperative varus and valgus deformity and(More)
BACKGROUND Tibial eminence avulsion fracture often co-occurs with tibial plateau fracture, which leads to difficult concomitant management. The value of simultaneous arthroscopy-assisted treatment continues to be debated despite its theoretical advantages. We describe a simple arthroscopic suture fixation technique and hypothesize that simultaneous(More)
Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is a development variation of the embryonic thoracic venous system. It can be isolated or associated with congenital heart disease combined with shunting problems. Many image findings of PLSVC have been reported, but few mentioned findings in a first-pass radionuclide angiography. We report a case of PLSVC found(More)
Erratum After publication of the original article [1] it came to our attention that there were errors in Table 3. The data in the first parameter [preoperative coronal MA(°)] was incorrect and has been corrected in Table 3 below. Lee MS, et al. Improved femoral component rotation in advanced genu valgum deformity using computer-assisted measured resection(More)
