PURPOSE This study used percutaneous techniques augmented by simultaneous wrist arthroscopy to visualize the fracture and thus confirm the fracture alignment and reduction and also to assesses the concurrent associated ligament injuries. TYPE OF STUDY Retrospective study. METHODS Arthroscopy was used to help to reduce scaphoid fractures and assess(More)
Between September 1997 and September 2000, 32 patients (20 males and 12 females; average age 23.7 years) received arthroscopic surgery for dorsal wrist ganglion. Five of the patients (15.6%) experienced recurrences after open surgery. All patients complained of pain or a cosmetic problem due to the lump. Before the operation, they were all sonographically(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of shoulder muscle fatigue on glenohumeral proprioception. DESIGN A repeated proprioception test was performed. BACKGROUND The role of conditioning and fatigue in sport injuries remains controversial. It has been hypothesized that proprioceptive information plays an important role in joint stabilization and that(More)
Proprioception and muscle strength are both reported to influence single-limb stance balance in patients with chronic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. However, the effects of these parameters on dynamic stance balance in such patients are currently unknown. This study was undertaken to ascertain whether proprioception, muscle strength, and knee(More)
BACKGROUND Tears in the traumatic triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) are generally caused by falling accidents with pronated, hyperextended wrists, or by distraction injuries that pull the ulnar side of the wrist out of place. Tears in the triangular fibrocartilage complex often appear in association with ulnar wrist pain and limited wrist function in(More)
STUDY DESIGN A case report and review of the literature are presented. OBJECTIVE To describe an extremely rare case of combined extraforaminal and intradiscal cement leakage in different vertebral levels following percutaneous vertebroplasty. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Cement leaks in vertebroplasty are relatively common but generally not clinically(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated diffusion-weighted (DWI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as an alternative to fat-suppressed T2-weighted imaging (FS-T2WI) for assessment of partial-thickness rotator cuff tears (RCTs). METHODS Patients with arthroscopy proven partial-thickness RCTs who also received MRI (FS-T2WI and DWI) before surgery were(More)
From September 1996 to September 2001, 37 adult patients were diagnosed with chronic triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears with distal radioulnar joint (DRUJ) instability in our clinic. They had all received the procedure of TFCC reconstruction with partial extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) combined with or without ulnar shortening. There were 36 males(More)
Osteonecrosis of the second metatarsal head is often attributed to Freiberg's disease. We describe the case of a 27-year-old Taiwanese male soldier with persistent painful disability of the right forefoot of 9 months' duration, but no history of trauma. A series of radiographs suggested the diagnosis of late-stage Freiberg's disease. The lesion was treated(More)
From September 1996 to September 1997, 27 adult patients were diagnosed with chronic triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) tears with distal radioulna joint (DRUJ) instability in our clinic. They all received the procedure of TFCC reconstruction with partial extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) tendon combined with or without ulnar shortening. There were 26(More)
