A retrospective review (1970-1982) of the clinical experience of 68 children with acute hematogenous osteomyelitis (AHO) is presented. Analysis of the epidemiologic, clinical, laboratory, radiologic and bacteriologic findings is made. Our series was treated mainly by an aggressive primary surgical protocol which is described in detail. Seventeen percent(More)
We studied the replacement of hepatic S9 with in vivo and in vitro induced hepatocytes as a metabolic activation system with the aim of broadening the possibilities of mutagenic assays. Rats were pretreated with beta-naphthoflavone (BNF), phenobarbital (PB), 3-methylcholanthrene (MC) and a combination of BNF and PB (BNF + PB). Mutagenic activation of(More)
In order to study the role of calcium-regulating hormones during callus formation in elderly patients, serum levels of parathormone (PTH), calcitonin (CT), 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25-OH-D], 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)2D], 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [24,25(OH)2D], and calcium (Ca) were determined in 41 patients with fractures of long bones, primarily hip(More)
Although liposarcoma is a common tumor of the soft tissues of the body, it rarely occurs as a primary neoplasm of bone. An extensive review of the literature from 1930-1980 uncovered fewer than 35 cases. The authors discuss the diagnosis and treatment of a case of primary liposarcoma of bone in the right femur of a 34-year-old Bedouin man.
The metabolism of calcium is regulated by hormones: parathyroid hormone, (PTH) calcitonin (CT), and vitamin D metabolites. To study the physiologic role of these hormones during the process of fracture healing in humans, the blood levels of PTH, CT, 25-(OH)-D3, 24,25-(OH)2-D3, and calcium were determined in 13 young patients with fractures of long bones.(More)
A rare case of avascular necrosis of bone of unknown etiology affecting several phalanges of one hand in a 12-year-old Israeli girl is presented. This entity has been described in the literature under the title of "Phalangeal microgeodic syndrome in childhood." Forty cases have been reported mostly from Japan. The clinical presentation is that of a sudden(More)
