UNLABELLED To determine significant medical outcomes in febrile children presenting to an ambulatory setting with neutropenia and/or leukopenia. METHODS Retrospective medical record review conducted on febrile patients who had a blood culture drawn, with white blood cell counts less than 5,000/mm3 and/or an absolute neutrophil count less than 1000/mm3.(More)
The treatment results of 37 patients with malignant brain neoplasms treated with a computed-tomography-guided stereotactic iridium-192 implant are reviewed. Of these, 29 patients with high-grade gliomas (20 with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), nine with anaplastic astrocytoma (AA] received an implant as part of their initial management. The median survival(More)
Unilateral rupture of the quadriceps tendon is not uncommon, but bilateral spontaneous quadriceps tendon rupture is a rare occurrence and is usually associated with some underlying predisposing condition. We describe a case of a previously healthy patient who presents with bilateral spontaneous rupture of both quadriceps tendon. Investigations revealed that(More)
Interstitial implants for brain tumours with removable iridium-192 radioactive seeds have been performed using a Brown-Roberts-Wells stereotactic frame. A simple and accurate computed-tomography-guided dosimetry pre-planning technique and procedure prior to implant have been developed and are discussed.
Controversies over operative versus closed immobilization of traumatic complex multiple ligamentous knee injury are still debated. The aim of our study is to evaluate the outcome of reconstructive vs non-reconstructive (closed immobilization) treatment outcomes. This is a retrospective review of cases seen at our institution. All cases admitted with a(More)
BACKGROUND Arthroscopic coracoid decompression is performed for coracoid impingement and has also been advocated for arthroscopic repair of tears of the subscapularis tendon, placing the lateral cord or the musculocutaneous nerve at risk of injury. The dynamic relationship of the lateral cord to the coracoid while the upper limb is in abduction and traction(More)
