An average 4.6 year follow-up study has been done on 80 of 104 open meniscus repairs of unstable peripheral tears. Two of nine retears were treated in the acute stage and seven were treated in the chronic stage. Eight retears were medial, one was lateral (repair ratio, 1.5:1 medial to lateral), three occurred through the repair site, and six occurred in(More)
 Objective. There are no published large-scale studies of the overall prevalence of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and it has been proposed that the prevalence is greater than previously reported. We thus decided to review chest radiographs in a population of patients over 50 years of age seen at two large but differing metropolitan(More)
Magnetic resonance (MR) images of 16 peripheral nerve tumors (14 patients) were correlated with histopathologic appearance. Thirteen patients had surgically proved neuro-fibromatosis. There were 10 neurofibromas, four schwannomas, and two neurofibrosarcomas. Seven of the 10 neurofibromas showed a target pattern of increased peripheral signal intensity and(More)
Fourteen patients (15 joints) developed a foreign body reaction to methylmethacrylate, polyethylene, or metal adjacent to a total joint implan, a condition we would like to term granulomatous pseudotumors. There were eight male and six female patients. Their average age was 61 years. The hip was involved in 14 joints (femoral component 11 times, acetabulum(More)
Two cases of lymphangiomatosis of bone, a very rare systemic condition characterized by both skeletal and parenchymal lesions, are presented. The skeletal changes have an appearance similar to haemangiomas in the spine, and soap-bubbly lesions in the flat bones. One case carried the diagnosis of eosinophilic granuloma for 18 years. The findings on MRI,(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacies of mammography, sonography, CT, and MR imaging in the detection of breast implant rupture and to analyze the imaging findings. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thirty-two women with 63 silicone breast implants participated in the study. All but one had signs and symptoms suggestive of rupture, and all(More)
Three patients with solitary osteochondromas which were increasing in size have been recently examined. Plain films were available on all patients; two patients had MR studies, and two had CT scans. In all three cases, malignant transformation of the osteochondroma was suspected from the cross-sectional imaging studies, but pathologic examination proved(More)
