There are well-recognized limitations of conventional axial radiographs of the patellofemoral joint in assessing patients with peripatellar pain, particularly in the first 20 degrees of knee flexion. Computerized tomography (CT) was used, therefore, to evaluate 20 patients with persistent patellofemoral pain and ten asymptomatic volunteers. Multiple(More)
Computerized tomography (CT) provides an accurate diagnostic tool for evaluating tilt and subluxation of the patella. Using a previously described technique, this study reviews 62 computerized tomograms, including those of 21 patients before and after lateral release or anteromedial tibial tubercle transfer. One patient was evaluated before and after(More)
A preliminary study was undertaken at the University of Connecticut Sport Injury and Knee Clinic to evaluate a small series of patients with peripatellar pain as well as a group of asymptomatic controls. With the encouragement of the initial results, this experience has been expanded to include a larger number of patients. Based on CT criteria of(More)
Omental Infarction, the end result of impaired perfusion to the greater omentum, is a rare entity (JBCM Puylaert, Radiology 1992;185:169–172). We recently encountered three patients in whom computed tomography (CT) showed the characteristic findings of omental infarction. The diagnosis was subsequently confirmed intraoperatively and pathologically in two of(More)
Inappropriate ACTH secretion with bilateral diffuse or macronodular adrenal hyperplasia is the most common cause of Cushing's syndrome. This report describes a patient with Cushing's syndrome and feminization due to ACTH-independent bilateral macronodular adrenal hyperplasia. A 47-yr-old black man presented with Cushingoid features, diabetes mellitus,(More)
The effectiveness of five cervical orthoses in restricting cervical motion was evaluated quantitatively in normal subjects using roentgenograms and overhead photographs made at the extremes of three planes of motion, while the effectiveness of the halo with a plastic body-vest was studied in seven patients with cervical fractures or local fusions. Flexion(More)
Grebe syndrome is a recessively inherited acromesomelic dysplasia. We studied, clinically and radiographically, 10 affected individuals, originating from Bahia, Brazil. The phenotype is characterized by a normal axial skeleton and severely shortened and deformed limbs, with a proximo-distal gradient of severity. The humeri and femora were relatively normal,(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the locations and characterize the types of brain abnormalities noted on brain magnetic resonance imaging in patients with probable and definite neurofibromatosis type 1. Patients with definite neurofibromatosis type 1 (n = 17) were studied when clinically indicated, and patients with probable neurofibromatosis(More)
Periventricular heterotopia (PH) involves dramatic malformations of the human cerebral cortex. Here we show that PH is closely linked to markers in distal Xq28 (maximal two-point lod score = 4.77 for F8C at theta = 0; maximal multipoint lod score = 5.37), so that affected females are obligatory mosaics for the mutation; that PH is lethal to at least some(More)
