Following a vigorous range of motion protocol, 13 ankylosed knees (preoperative motion, 16 degrees +/- 8 degrees to 48 degrees +/- 23 degrees) achieved a significant increase in postoperative range of motion (0 degree +/- 2 degrees to 103 degrees +/- 20 degrees), which was indistinguishable from that achieved by a comparable group of flexible knees(More)
OBJECTIVE Interrater agreement and construct validity of the Revised Knox Preschool Play Scale (RKPPS) were examined. METHOD Two separately trained raters evaluated 38 typically developing children, ages 36 to 72 months. For each child, the raters observed two 15-min free-play sessions. RESULTS For the overall play age, the scores of the two raters were(More)
A case of renal hypophosphatemic osteomalacia (RHO) that was unmasked by hyperthyroidism is presented. The patient presented at age 64 with pathologic leg fractures. There was no family history of osteomalacia or rickets. Initial evaluation revealed hyperthyroidism, which was treated with radioactive iodine. Despite control of thyroid function, the patient(More)
A neonatal boy with cleidocranial dysostosis presented with congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia. Clinical observation later revealed he also had osteogenesis imperfecta. The osteogenesis imperfecta was classified as Type I and the congenital tibial pseudarthrosis as Type II. Cleidocranial dysostosis, osteogenesis imperfecta, and congenital pseudarthrosis(More)
The Zickel nail can be inserted without difficulty as follows. The fracture table is set for the supine position and double-leg traction. Adduction of the fractured leg and traction on the opposite abducted leg clear the femur from the iliac wing. With use of the image intensifier for blind insertion of an intramedullary rod, the Zickel nail can be inserted(More)
