BACKGROUND This study investigated diffusion-weighted (DWI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as an alternative to fat-suppressed T2-weighted imaging (FS-T2WI) for assessment of partial-thickness rotator cuff tears (RCTs). METHODS Patients with arthroscopy proven partial-thickness RCTs who also received MRI (FS-T2WI and DWI) before surgery were(More)
The EAR (Excision, Alcoholization, Replantation) method consists of a proper tumor resection, removal of tumor tissue extracorporally, soaking the residual bone shell in 95% alcohol for half an hour, and replantation in situ, the cavity being filled with bone graft or bone cement. Eighty-three cases were treated in this manner, of which 95% were followed(More)
