A 10-center randomized prospective multicenter study of endoscopic release of the carpal tunnel was carried out. Surgery was performed with a new device for transecting the transverse carpal ligament while control hands were treated with conventional open surgery. There were 122 patients in the study; 25 had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands and 97 had(More)
This report reviews two groups of cases: 194 fracture dislocations of the hip reviewed in 1952, and a follow-up of 222 additional fracture dislocations of the hip seen since then. The report describes the methods of treatment used in terms of the various classifications of fracture dislocations of the hip and analyses the results, the complications and the(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate 5 defined measurement techniques that are applicable to x-rays of Madelung's deformity: ulnar tilt, lunate subsidence, lunate fossa angle, palmar tilt, and palmar carpal displacement. The measurements rely on the longitudinal axis of the ulna and the carpal bones to determine drawing lines and avoid the distorted distal radius and its(More)
The flexor digitorum superficialis is a diagastric muscle with a proximal muscle belly from which the tendons to the index, ring and little fingers arise. These tendons are not independent and are not good motors for non-synergistic transfers, such as for finger extension. The muscle and tendon to the middle finger arise separately and are therefore more(More)
The goal of the single incision endoscopic technique is to avoid an incision on the palmar surface of the hand. As compared with open release and the two-portal endoscopic technique for release of the carpal tunnel, this single incision technique permits the patient to return earlier to work and activities of daily living as a result of less tenderness and(More)
Twenty patients underwent proximal row carpectomy and were retrospectively evaluated for pain, motion, grip strength, functional activity, and x-ray changes at a mean follow-up of 3 1/2 years. For nonrheumatoid patients, motion decreased 15% after surgery, mean grip strength improved 22%, and 82% believed their conditions were improved and said they would(More)
We report the long-term outcome of repeat Russe bone grafting after failure of a previous Russe graft for scaphoid non-union. 15 patients were followed for a mean of 71 months after their last surgical procedure. 11 patients had undergone a single previous Russe graft and four patients had two previous graft attempts. Internal fixation was used in only(More)
BACKGROUND Congenital longitudinal deficiencies of the radius and thumb are known to be associated with one another; however, the details of their relationship are unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine whether increased severity of radial deficiencies is associated with increased severity of thumb deficiencies and to review the relationship(More)
Paralytic supination deformity of the forearm, secondary to obstetrical palsy, was treated by biceps tendon rerouting in 11 children. In two patients additional pronation was obtained by subsequent percutaneous osteoclasis and rotation of the radius and ulna. Correction of the supination deformity resulted in improvement of single-handed as well as(More)
