Fractures of the fabella are rare, with only nine cases reported in the literature. However, they can cause severe posterolateral knee pain. Other complications include osteoarthritis and, very rarely, peroneal nerve compression. All the prior cases have been transverse fractures. Here we present a first case of a sagittally oriented fabella fracture(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to provide a review of indications for shoulder arthroplasty, describe preoperative imaging assessment, present new and modified designs of shoulder arthroplasty, illustrate normal and abnormal postoperative imaging findings, and review key radiographic measurements. CONCLUSION Knowledge of the physiologic purpose,(More)
We present the case of an insufficiency fracture of the femoral shaft in a 61-year-old man who had received bisphosphonate therapy to reduce the fracture risk from lytic renal cell carcinoma metastases to the spine. Approximately 1.5 years after beginning monthly intravenous infusions of zoledronic acid (Zometa), the patient complained of persistent thigh(More)
There is concern that feeding full-strength animal milk to infants aged less than 6 months with diarrhoea may have adverse consequences. We assessed the effects on clinical course of two feeding regimens in 159 Guatemalan and Brazilian infants aged 2 weeks to 6 months who had had acute diarrhoea for 120 h or less, showed signs of mild to moderate(More)
We present the case of an 85-year-old woman who sustained a subtrochanteric femoral shaft insufficiency fracture after receiving bisphosphonate therapy for osteoporosis. After more than 6 years of taking risedronate sodium (Actonel) and daily supplemental calcium carbonate and vitamin D, the patient developed right anterior thigh pain that was worse with(More)
We present a case of an 85-year-old woman with extensive metallosis of the left hip joint secondary to prosthetic polyethelene liner dislocation and wear. Radiographs demonstrated amorphous cloudy radiodensities surrounding the prosthesis, a feature we have called the "cloud sign." The presence of amorphous cloudy radiodensities as a radiographic sign of(More)
Although case reports have always had a place at the foundation of medical knowledge, established radiology journals have increasingly focused their efforts on major research studies. This de-emphasis of case reports has resulted in a dearth of opportunities to publish them. Case reports continue to mark the frontiers of what we know as physicians, and have(More)
A young adult male pedestrian was struck by a car and sustained a closed complete rupture of both heads of the biceps brachii muscle belly, among other injuries. Rupture of the biceps brachii muscle belly is a rare injury, and complete muscle belly rupture of both long and short heads from direct blunt force trauma has not been reported outside of military(More)
A 53-year-old man presented with cervical myelopathy. magnetic resonance imagine (MRI) revealed a predominantly extraskeletal, extradural lesion extending along the posterior aspects of the C2 to C5 vertebral bodies, with greater than 60% spinal canal compromise and severe cord compression. Bone involvement was present, but was thought to be secondary.(More)
