PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare measurements of bone tunnel enlargement after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using digital plain radiography and computed tomography (CT). TYPE OF STUDY Within-subjects comparison of 2 imaging techniques. METHODS Twenty-two patients who had undergone primary ACL reconstruction had(More)
BACKGROUND AND STUDY AIMS Patient-controlled sedation (PCS) using propofol and alfentanil provides effective sedation for colonoscopy, with the advantage of a shorter recovery time in comparison with diazepam and pethidine. However, most endoscopy units in the United Kingdom are currently using midazolam (a shorter-acting benzodiazepine) as a sedative(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to determine whether the presence of fetal fibronectin in vaginal secretions of patients with symptoms suggestive of preterm labor predicts preterm delivery. STUDY DESIGN Patients who were examined at the hospital between 24 weeks' and 34 weeks 6 days' gestation with intact membranes, no prior tocolysis, symptoms suggestive of(More)
This study compared hamstring (HS) and patellar tendon (PT) anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in females. Sixty-five patients (43 HS, 22 PT) were evaluated at a mean 3.8-year postoperatively. Evaluation included IKDC 2000, SF-36, Cincinnati sports activity scores, anterior knee pain (AKP), kneeling pain, range of motion and anterior knee(More)
BACKGROUND Joint dislocation is a traumatic event that can lead to osteoarthritis. The purpose of this paper is to study cartilage changes following prolonged joint dislocation for 1, 2 or 8 h. METHODS Sprague-Dawley rats (n = 27) were used in this study. Surgical dislocation of the hip under anaesthesia was carried out on the animals. The joints remained(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the metabolic effects of biphasic insulin lispro 50/50 in routine clinical practice. A total of 229 patients who were ≥18 years old with diabetes, newly treated with biphasic insulin lispro 50/50, were sourced from six secondary care services in England. METHODS Detailed clinical parameters were compared at(More)
Currently, there is no protocol for the detection of intra-articular distribution of Er-169 citrate after radiosynovectomy. We propose post-therapeutic imaging using scintigraphy and cobalt-57 pen-marker autoradiography. This technique evaluates the efficacy of the radiosynovectomy and patient safety and could be utilized for dosimetric protocol.
