The extraosseous and intraosseous vascularity of the carpal scaphoid was studied in 15 fresh cadaver specimens by injection and clearing techniques. The major blood supply to the scaphoid is via the radial artery. Seventy to eight percent of the intraosseous vascularity and the entire proximal pole is from branches of the radial artery entering through the(More)
The Universal Wrist Implant was used to treat 31 patients (37 wrists), who had symptoms indicating pancarpal arthritis of the wrist, diagnosed as total wrist arthroplasty. Their mean age was 58.1 years. Follow-up ranged from 48 to 120 months with a mean of 79.4 months (6.7 years). The carpal component of the Universal Total Wrist is fixed to the carpus by(More)

Open partial trapeziectomy and interpositional arthroplasty have proven to be effective in ameliorating the symptoms of carpometacarpal joint arthritis of the thumb. Surgical technique of arthroscopic partial resection of the trapezium and interpositional arthroplasty is described. Thirty-three interpositional arthroplasties were carried out(More)
Thymic carcinoid is part of the multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1) syndrome occurring predominantly in male patients who were heavy smokers, presenting most commonly in middle age. In contrast with metastatic midgut carcinoids, MEN1-related thymic carcinoid is not associated with carcinoid syndrome, nor is it associated with Cushing syndrome, in(More)
Sixteen patients who underwent partial excision of the triangular fibrocartilage (TFC) to treat chronic wrist pain were studied retrospectively. Eleven patients (69%) had no symptoms at follow-up: Five other patients later underwent distal ulnar resection. All patients over 40 years of age did poorly after the operation. The patients who had no symptoms(More)
The extraosseous and intraosseous vascularity of the lunate was studied in 35 fresh cadaver limbs. The specimens were injected with latex, debrided by a nondissection technique, and cleared by a modified Spalteholtz method. The extraosseous vascularity was profuse through two to three dorsal and three to four volar vessels feeding dorsal and volar capsular(More)
There has been little attention paid to the persistence of the pulse following complete forearm arterial transection, and we found no report that has established the etiology or frequency of this phenomenon. Eighteen patients with documented complete radial or ulnar artery transections were evaluated. Nine of the 18 patients had persistently palpable pulse(More)
Twenty-six patients with suspected forearm compartment syndromes were evaluated clinically and by intracompartmental pressure determinations. The most reliable physical findings indicating a forearm compartment syndrome were marked pain on passive digital extension and reduced hand sensibility or paresthesias. Pressure determinations were most helpful in(More)
