OBJECTIVE The purpose of this investigation was to characterize the MRI appearance of the quadriceps fat pad and to correlate the findings with other knee abnormalities, anatomic measurements of the extensor mechanism, and findings from history and at physical examination. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ninety-two consecutive knee MRI examinations from 84 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Initial reports have shown percutaneous sonographically guided needle tenotomy without corticosteroid injection to be effective for the treatment of tennis elbow. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of this procedure with various tendons throughout the body. METHODS Fourteen tendons in 13 patients were identified as(More)
This article reviews the current literature regarding the use of ribose as an ergogenic aid. Ribose manufacturers claim that it provides ergogenic benefit, but this has not been substantiated through scientific investigations. Data have shown promise that ribose supplementation leads to enhanced restoration of ATP levels following exercise, but this has(More)
OBJECTIVE Intraarticular osteoid osteoma often has subtle radiographic findings and nonspecific clinical features; further diagnostic workup of unexplained joint pain may involve musculoskeletal sonography. We describe the sonographic features of intraarticular osteoid osteoma in three consecutive patients with radiographic, CT, and MR imaging correlation.(More)
Clavicle fractures are common injuries in both children and adults. In most cases, the diagnosis can be made readily from the patient's history and physical examination. X-rays are helpful to confirm the diagnosis, to assess the severity of the fracture, and to follow interval healing. Most fractures are treated nonoperatively, and surgical intervention is(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the retrospective results of ultrasound-guided needle fenestration for the treatment of recalcitrant patellar tendinopathy. DESIGN Retrospective follow-up study. SETTING University outpatient sports medicine clinic. PATIENTS Forty-seven patellar tendons in 32 patients (26 men and 6 women; mean age, 26 years) with recalcitrant(More)
This article reviews the recent literature on the use of anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) for performance enhancement. Recent studies utilizing supraphysiologic doses of testosterone have demonstrated increases in strength and improvements in body composition, despite earlier assertions by the medical community that steroids were ineffective as ergogenic(More)
Fractures of the clavicle are relatively common injuries that can occur in patients of all ages. The history and physical examination remain the primary means of diagnosing this injury. Plain radiographs are helpful to confirm the diagnosis and to provide information regarding fracture classification, prognosis, and treatment options. The emphasis of this(More)
Systemic oxygen delivery (DO2) is normally four to five times higher than oxygen consumption (VO2), and VO2 is independent of DO2. If DO2 is decreased to less than twice VO2, a state of anaerobic metabolism and supply dependency occurs. Some authors have reported that this biphasic relationship is altered in the adult respiratory distress syndrome or sepsis(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine whether any sonographic features of jumper's knee can predict the outcome after sonographically guided percutaneous patellar tendon fenestration. METHODS Patients were identified between July 2001 and March 2009 who had clinical and sonographic findings of jumper's knee, who had failed conservative(More)
