Twenty patients with symptoms present for an average of 21.1 months and who in most cases had been treated by several conservative techniques for chronic tennis elbow were diagnosed as having radial tunnel syndrome, as originally described by Roles and Maudsley. Release of the tunnel was followed by eventual relief in 19 instances (95%).
One hundred cases of osteosynthesis done by the use of intraosseous wiring are presented. Two techniques of wiring are described, one used in transverse fractures and arthrodeses in which an additional Kirschner wire is employed, the other in which No. 0 monofilament wire can be placed perpendicular to the line of osteosynthesis. Forty-seven fractures were(More)
IN excising the majority of skin lesions, surgeons create an elliptical can be closed directly. As the lesions increase in size, however, there comes when either the long axis of the ellipse becomes too long for the local cosmetic result, or the short axis too wide to permit direct suture. In instances the excisional outline may be replanned and closure(More)
A study was made of the results of immediate repair and controlled mobilization in 156 severed flexor tendons in 68 patients occuring over an 18-month period. Eight patients with 16 tendon injuries could not be followed. Results were obtained from examinations done 6 weeks to 18 months (mean, 5.3 months) after repair. Thirty-one of the 60 patients were less(More)
In ten cases, including five rod placements, four tenolyses, and one immediate tendon graft, 15 pulleys have been reconstructed using a strip of extensor retinaculum 6 to 8 cm long and 8 mm in width. Placed around the phalanx, overlapped, and sutured, the 15 mm segment formely over the fourth dorsal compartment has been positioned over the flexor tendod.(More)
Symptomatic radial nerve compression is relatively uncommon. A relatively high incidence of compressive neuropathy involves other major nerves in the same extremity. Because sensory complaints are minor, radial nerve compression may successfully masquerade as tendonitis or tendon rupture. The most common site of radial nerve compression is in the forearm,(More)
Defining replantation as the restoration of a completely amputated part as opposed to simply restoring circulation to an incompletely severed part, the results of replantation of 86 completely amputated parts in 71 patients performed from January, 1970, to December, 1975, were studied. Twenty-eight, or 32.5 percent, were the result of sharp severances of(More)
Thirty-one emergency free flaps were applied to the upper extremities of patients who ranged in age from 16 to 57 years. The size of the skin defects ranged from 13 to 540 square centimeters, with an average of 145 square centimeters. A variety of flaps were used, including 14 lateral arm, seven groin, five latissimus, three first web space of the foot, one(More)
The attributes that make the thumb unique are position, stability, strength, length, motion, sensibility, and appearance. Of these qualities, the first four must be present to an acceptable extent for function to approach normality, while the latter three are very desirable but not essential. Reconstructive alternatives following amputation can be(More)
