The performance of a single X-ray absorptiometry (SXA) device incorporating an X-ray tube as a photon source was evaluated with respect to precision in vivo and in vitro, scan time, image quality, and correlation with an existing dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) device. SXA precision in vivo, expressed as a coefficient of variation (CV), was 0.66% for(More)
Our retrospective study of 12 skeletally immature athletes with type III intercondylar eminence fractures showed that arthroscopic evaluation with mini-open arthrotomy and repair of the tibial intercondylar eminence fracture with absorbable suture can be successful in repairing anterior cruciate ligament avulsion fractures and in helping such patients(More)
The purpose of the current study was to determine the changes in lumbar spine, hip, and calcaneus bone mineral density (BMD), and in calcaneus broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA) in early menopausal women and to assess the effects of estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) on bone mass at these sites over a 2-yr period. Fifty-three Caucasian women who were at(More)
This study evaluates disuse osteoporosis of the proximal humerus after shoulder surgery and immobilization. This was accomplished by quantifying bone mineral density changes in 22 patients' proximal humeri after 6 weeks of immobilization for soft-tissue shoulder surgery. The bone mineral density of the humeral head, neck, and proximal diaphyseal subregions(More)
Bone mineral density (BMD) is a predictor of fracture risk. The purpose of this study was to determine whether a correlation exists between femoral neck BMD and an indicator of mechanical bone strength in human and bovine samples. Human proximal femurs were obtained from seven men and two women undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA), mean age 60.3 years.(More)
This study determined the early natural history of disuse osteoporosis in the ulna and radius. Six women and 2 men (mean age, 48.5 years; range, 35-60 years) having surgery on their wrists or hands had bone mineral density determined by single energy xray absorptiometry at 4 sites of the distal radius and ulna before operation, at cast removal (mean, 4.9(More)
TRH is found in terminals in the dorsal, lateral, and ventral horns of the spinal cord and apparently has at least a weak facilitatory effect on excitability of neurons in all these locations. These findings suggest that TRH may facilitate transmission in somatosensory pathways, enhance sympathetic outflow from the spinal cord, and facilitate somatic(More)
