Two hundred and ten patients with coeliac disease previously reported from this unit were reviewed at the end of 1985 after a further 11 years of follow up. The initial review at the end of 1974 could not demonstrate that a gluten free diet (GFD) prevented these complications, probably because the time on diet was relatively short. The same series has(More)
Contact stress distributions were studied in vitro for 13 dog knees, with full-thickness osteochondral defects drilled in the weight-bearing area of both femoral condyles. Diameters of the circular defects were concentrically enlarged from 1 to 7 mm. Digitally-imaged Fuji film was used to record cartilage contact stress distribution on femoral condyles for(More)
We attempted to elicit quadriceps and hamstring electromyographic responses in seven chloralose-anesthetized cats by loading the ACL with controlled anterior displacement of the tibia on the femur using rigid fixation and an MTS testing machine. We did not detect reflex activity in the quadriceps or hamstring muscles of any of the cats in response to(More)
Twenty-five A1 pulleys in 5 fresh cadaveric hands and 13 trigger fingers in 11 patients were released percutaneously with a 19 gauge needle, as described by Eastwood et al., to determine the efficacy and safety of the technique. Over 90% of the length of each individual finger and thumb A1 pulley were successfully released in the cadaveric digits with no(More)
OBJECTIVE Residency programs are continually attempting to predict the performance of both current and potential residents. Previous studies have supported the use of USMLE Steps 1 and 2 as predictors of Orthopaedic In-Training Examination (OITE) and eventual American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery success, while others show no significant correlation.

BACKGROUND Optimizing pain control following total knee arthroplasty is of utmost importance to the immediate post-operative course. Various anesthesia modalities are available, but studies comparing multiple anesthesia modalities, patient age, and sex are limited. QUESTIONS/PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to examine the impact of patient age,(More)
Twenty-three pelvic osteotomies (10 Salter, seven Chiari, six Steel) were performed on 21 patients with cerebral palsy for hip subluxation or dislocation from 1977 to 1986. The principal indication for osteotomy was inadequate coverage of the femoral head. Stability was maintained in 19 of 23 hips with an average follow-up of 6.14 years (2.0-13.3). The hips(More)
A time-series prospective study of patients admitted to the hospital for treatment of community-acquired pneumonia was undertaken to determine vancomycin-resistant enterococcal perianal colonization rates among patients who received ceftriaxone with or without erythromycin versus those who received levofloxacin. A colonization rate of 16% (8/51) was found(More)
Seventy-four pediatric cases of Respiratory Syncytial Virus lower respiratory tract infection were treated at Providence Hospital, Anchorage, Alaska between September 1, 1987 and April 30, 1988. These patients are described with illustrative case reports. Twenty-one patients were treated with Ribavirin and these patients are further analyzed as a special(More)
Acetabular reconstruction in revision total hip arthroplasty can be complicated by acetabular bone loss. In patients with severe acetabular bone deficiency with segmental bone defects or pelvic discontinuity, obtaining a stable, well-fixed acetabular component can be challenging. Although porous-coated, uncemented hemispheric cups can be used in most(More)
