BACKGROUND Voluntary shoulder instability is characterized by a patient's ability to sublux their shoulder using selective muscle contraction and relaxation. High failure rates exist with open shoulder stabilization in this group of patients. The purpose of this study was to report the outcomes for patients with voluntary instability treated(More)
High-resolution (10-MHz) ultrasonography produces extremely detailed anatomic images of the testis. The sonographic features most helpful in detecting tumors are mass, bright echogenic foci, and diffuse parenchymal texture change. Of 29 patients with testicular neoplasms, 21 (72%) had one or more masses, 19 (66%) had one or more echogenic foci, and nine(More)
Medical records of patients having unilateral nephrectomies done between 1953 and 1978 at a university hospital were reviewed after 5 to 30 years of follow-up to determine if this procedure causes insidious renal insufficiency. Forty patients (selected from 571) ranging in age from 20 to 72 years met the following criteria for inclusion in the study:(More)
A patient with chronic eosinophilic pneumonia associated with ulcerative colitis and asthma is described. Exacerbations and remissions of these disorders paralleled each other. Pleural fluid and lung tissue contained high levels of eosinophil granule major basic protein, a substance with toxic effects on cells and tissues. The results indicate that(More)
BACKGROUND Unfractionated heparin has largely been replaced by low molecular weight heparin in the treatment and prevention of thrombosis and recurrent miscarriage in pregnancy. There is little information, however, about the efficacy and safety of tinzaparin, which has the advantage of being administered as a single daily dose. AIMS To evaluate the(More)
Germ cell tumors that manifest as extragonadal masses in patients with testes that are normal to palpation are an unusual clinical finding. The possibility of the existence of an occult testicular primary tumor has prompted investigation of noninvasive techniques to examine the testes. The records of patients who had undergone high-resolution real-time(More)
