We describe the normal sonographic image, focusing on the amount and location of postoperative fluid collections after a clinically uncomplicated, primary total hip replacement by the posterior(More)
Background and purpose - Many methods of gastrocnemius lengthening have been described, with different surgical challenges, outcomes, and risks to the sural nerve. Our aims were (1) to locate the gastrocnemius muscular-tendinous junction in relation to the mid-length of the fibula (from here on designated the mid-fibula), (2) to compare the dorsiflexion(More)
BACKGROUND Discrepancies observed between clinical findings and a weightbearing foot X-ray might be caused by a patients' positioning. This study's main objective was to determine the effect of a subjects' posture on the osseous relations of the foot. METHODS Anatomical markers were placed on the skin of the foot of 17 subjects. A plantar pressure plate(More)
BACKGROUND The mechanical importance of the interosseous tibiofibular ligament of the ankle is unclear. The purpose of the current study was to compare the stiffness and strength of the interosseous tibiofibular ligament to that of the anterior tibiofibular ligament. METHODS Twelve pairs of ankles were obtained from the Maryland State Anatomy Board. All(More)

We were concerned that technical failures of the lengthening technique might occur more often than has been reported, and analyzed the results of the triple hemisection(More)
