Apparent regeneration of the tendons of the semitendinosus and gracilis muscles after their use for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction was noted during routine follow-up of 225 patients. From this group, four patients were selected for thorough examination, including magnetic resonance imaging, electromyographic studies, strength testing, and(More)
Twenty-four patients who had an osteochondral fracture of the dome of the talus were examined by plain radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, computerized tomography, and, when indicated, scintigraphy. When plain radiographs of the ankle are relied on for the diagnosis of an osteochondral fracture of the talus, many lesions remain undiagnosed. Stage-I(More)
Performing classical ballet may cause major stress to the feet of the dancer. A variety of foot injuries have been described, with one such injury being an overuse syndrome involving the base of the second metatarsal and adjacent Lisfranc's joint. The diagnosis for this syndrome usually requires differentiating synovitis of Lisfranc's joint from a stress(More)
The early diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis ensures a timeous prognosis and appropriate therapy for this chronic disease. The radiograph of the hand is a valuable aid in making this diagnosis, but accurate interpretation is difficult. An outline of the X-ray changes seen in the rheumatoid hand is presented, and the salient points in the differential(More)
Ophthalmic examinations and selected tests of visual function were performed on 64 patients with rheumatoid arthritis who had received daily doses of 200 mg chloroquine sulphate for periods ranging from 3 to 11 months. Visual fields were determined by Humphrey automated perimetry and Amsler grids and a further battery of four tests of macular function(More)
Clofazimine, at concentrations within the therapeutic range (0.01-5 micrograms/ml), stimulated human polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNL) to generate increased amounts of reactive oxidants (RO) when activated with the tripeptide leucoattractant N-formyl-L-methionyl-L-leucyl-L-phenylalanine (FMLP), calcium ionophore, phorbol myristate acetate and opsonised(More)
Imaging should only be undertaken if it is likely to influence patient management. The dose of ionising radiation to the patient should be considered. Requesting the appropriate imaging method requires an understanding of the pathological process. Plain x-ray should still generally be the first imaging technique; exceptions include some forms of superficial(More)
