The anterior oblique component of the medial collateral ligament of the elbow is the mainstay of joint stability. Fractures of the medial epicondyle must be anatomically reduced, open if necessary. A fibrous union of a minimally displaced fractured medial epicondyle may result in lengthening and functional compromise of the medial collateral ligament.(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Adoption of the term intellectual disability (intellectual developmental disorder, IDD) in DSM-5 represents a shift from a disability (test score) emphasis to a disorder (medical/neurobiological) emphasis. Several implications of this shift for definition and diagnosis of intellectual disability (ID) are discussed. RECENT FINDINGS The(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether morphine would be as effective as bupivacaine for postoperative pain control after knee arthroscopy with no worsening of the side effect profile. Eighty-two patients who underwent partial meniscectomy, chondral debridement, or both were prospectively randomized to receive 10 mg of morphine (10-cc volume) or(More)
There is a growing awareness among mental health practitioners that many mental disorders previously believed to be primarily behavioral in nature, reflecting character and environment, are actually grounded in brain mal-development or brain disorder.

This paper briefly reviews the social science on "neighborhood effects" as an independent force in shaping poor outcomes, specifically mental illness and criminal behavior, before discussing the implications of that research for understanding the relationship between neighborhoods, race and class. Neighborhood effects research has proliferated in recent(More)
Biomechanical testing of the iliotibial tract screw tenodesis was performed in 10 cadaveric knees under forces approximating in vivo conditions. Force versus displacement curves at various flexion angles were generated with the anterior cruciate ligament intact, with the anterior cruciate ligament sectioned, and after the iliotibial tract screw tenodesis(More)
