Mechanical abnormalities of the patellofemoral joint are among the many causes that have been suggested for adolescent knee pain. This study seeks to identify these factors. Measurements of joint mobility and lower limb morphology were made on 446 pupils at a comprehensive school, 136 of whom had suffered knee pain in the previous year. The pupils with(More)
An MRI method is described for demonstrating improved oxygenation of human tumors and normal tissues during carbogen inhalation (95% O2, 5% CO2). T2*-weighted gradient-echo imaging was performed before, during, and after carbogen breathing in 47 tumor patients and 13 male volunteers. Analysis of artifacts and signal intensity was performed. Thirty-six(More)
A pilot study has shown that there is usually but not invariably a fall in systemic arterial blood pressure within 90 seconds of implanting acrylic cement into the femoral shaft during hip arthroplasty. There is usually no change in arterial blood pressure on implanting acrylic cement into the acetabulum. The observed hypotension may be due to absorption of(More)
The clinical and pathological features of a tumor of the temporamandibular joint occurring in a 55 year old man, and subsequently identified as a calcium pyrophosphate dihydrate (CPPD) arthropathy, are reported. Crystalline deposits were identified by compensated light microscopy and confirmed with X-ray diffraction, transmission, and scanning electron(More)
Out of 446 pupils aged 13-17 years, 115 were found to have a history of back pain. These pupils tended to have decreased lower limb joint mobility and increased trunk length compared with pupils without back pain. In 77 pupils whose site of back pain was identified, 38 had pain associated with the lumbar spine. These pupils had an increased trunk length(More)
PURPOSE a radiation-dose-escalation study was undertaken to assess the therapeutic benefit of combining accelerated hyperfractionated radiotherapy (RT) with neo-adjuvant chemotherapy (CT) in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and thirteen patients with locally advanced NSCLC were entered into a phase II trial of CHARTWEL(More)
We prospectively studied 217 patients who underwent 234 Elite Plus total hip arthroplasties. At a mean of 6.4 (SD 0.7) years post-operatively, 39 patients had died and 22 were either lost to follow-up or had no radiographs available. Clinical (Oxford hip score) and radiological assessments were performed on 156 patients (168 hip arthroplasties) who had a(More)
AIM To evaluate the feasibility, efficacy and toxicity of concurrent chemotherapy and continuous, hyperfractionated, accelerated radiotherapy weekend less (CHARTWEL) in the treatment of locally advanced, inoperable oesophageal cancer. METHODS A prospective study of 19 patients with histologically confirmed, locally advanced, inoperable carcinoma of the(More)
PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that there is a link between plasma glutathione (GSH) or other antioxidants (uric acid, ascorbate) and the severity of radiation mucositis following radiation treatment of tumors of the head and neck. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with carcinomas of the head-and-neck region were treated with the continuous hyperfractionated(More)
We present the case of a 28-year-old competitive runner with iliotibial band (ITB) friction syndrome associated with a synovial cyst. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) did not demonstrate a fluid collection. However, open exploration revealed a large cyst beneath the ITB arising from the capsule of the knee proximal to the lateral meniscus. The cyst(More)
