Totally, 100 hundred subcapital or diaphyseal fractures of the second through the fifth metacarpal were randomized to either a dorsal/ulnar plaster cast immobilizing the wrist and the joints of the involved digits or a functional cast allowing the wrist and the digits a free range of motion. Due to better retaining ability, functional casting reduced volar(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the intra- and inter-tester reproducibility of measurements of the Achilles tendon, tibialis anterior tendon, and the tibialis posterior tendon in football players using ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIAL AND METHODS Eleven asymptomatic football players were examined. Using a standardized US scanning(More)
BACKGROUND It is unknown whether an exercise program can prevent overuse injuries in the lower extremity. An often encountered and important risk factor for the development of lower extremity overuse injuries is an abrupt increase in activity level. HYPOTHESIS A preventive training program based on a literature review of intrinsic risk factors, and(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the ability of two different dedicated extremity MRI (E-MRI) units and conventional radiography (CR) for identifying bone erosions in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and wrist joints. METHODS CR and two MRI examinations (using 0.2 T Esaote Artoscan and 0.2 T portable MagneVu MV1000 units) of 418 bones in the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate acute anterior knee pain caused by overuse in terms of pain location, aggravating activities, findings on clinical examination and ultrasound/MRI examination. To determine if acute anterior knee pain caused by overuse should be classified as a subgroup of patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). METHODS In a observational study design(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the ability of two different E-MRI units and conventional radiography (CR) to identify bone erosions in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) metacarpophalangeal (MCP) and wrist joints with CT scanning as the standard reference method. METHODS 20 patients with RA and 5 controls underwent CR, CT and two E-MRI examinations (Esaote Biomedica(More)
PURPOSE The aim is to provide a complete overview of the different simulation-based training options for abdominal ultrasound and to explore the evidence of their effect. MATERIALS AND METHODS This systematic review was performed according to the PRISMA guidelines and Medline, Embase, Web of Science, and the Cochrane Library was searched. Articles were(More)
Thirty-six patients scheduled for knee arthroplasty were randomized to general or epidural anesthesia that was prolonged into the postoperative period. All the patients wore graded compression stockings until full ambulation. No other thrombo-prophylactic treatment was given. In diagnosing deep venous thrombosis, bilateral ascending venography was performed(More)
