Recent studies have demonstrated the ability of ultrasound techniques to differentiate normal and osteoporotic women. To define the ability of broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) of the calcaneus to predict axial bone mass, the ultrasound value was correlated with lumbar vertebral and femoral neck density in 22 Caucasian women. The three measures of bone(More)
To define the natural history of bone loss around a femoral prosthesis, the bone mineral content and bone mineral density were measured for each femur in 28 patients with unilateral total hip arthroplasty, 18 age-matched controls, and seven patients with unilateral osteoarthritis. The areas measured were inside the lesser trochanter and 4.8 cm distal to it.(More)
Murine teratocarcinomas are tumors derived from gametes or early embryos. They usually consist of a mixture of undifferentiated malignant embryonal carcinoma stem cells and differentiated benign cell types (Stevens 1958). Although most tissues express major histocompatibility complex (MHC) antigens (H-2 in the mouse, Klein 1975) undifferentiated(More)
The distal posterior interosseous nerve was dissected in 41 cadaveric specimens. Intraarticular branches were tagged with radioopaque markers and verified by fluoroscopy. The nerve averaged 1.3 mm in diameter and was located on the radial side of the fourth dorsal compartment encased in thickened fascia. Six of the specimens had a branch to the distal(More)
This article reviews 183 hand reconstructions in 135 consecutive tetraplegic patients. Comparisons were made between 103 extrinsic reconstructions with intrinsic balancing procedures and 80 extrinsic reconstructions without intrinsic balancing procedures. Extrinsic reconstructions (tendon transfers and tenodesis in the forearm muscles) were augmented by(More)
Objectives—To assess pain in young children presenting to an accident and emergency (A&E) department. To evaluate the use of the toddler-preschooler postoperative pain scale (TPPPS) and the use of analgesia in these children. Methods—100 children aged 1–5 years presenting to an A&E department were assessed for pain. Pain assessments were carried out using a(More)
