BACKGROUND Peroneal tendon displacement (subluxation or dislocation) accompanying an intra-articular calcaneal fracture is often undetected and under-treated. The goals of this study were to determine (1) the prevalence of peroneal tendon displacement accompanying intra-articular calcaneal fractures, (2) the association of tendon displacement with fracture(More)
BACKGROUND Femoral skeletal traction assists in the reduction and transient stabilization of pelvic, acetabular, hip, and femoral fractures when splinting is ineffective. Traditional teaching has recommended a medial entry site for insertion of the traction pin in order to minimize injury to the femoral artery as it passes through Hunter's canal. The(More)
Reversing the dysfunctional T cell state that arises in cancer and chronic viral infections is the focus of therapeutic interventions; however, current therapies are effective in only some patients and some tumor types. To gain a deeper molecular understanding of the dysfunctional T cell state, we analyzed population and single-cell RNA profiles of CD8(+)(More)
BACKGROUND In 1985, Silver et al. published a cadaver study which determined the relative order of strength of the muscles in the calf. Muscle strength, which is proportional to volume, was obtained by dissecting out the individual muscles, weighing them, and then multiplying by the specific gravity. No similar studies have been performed using {\it in(More)
BACKGROUND The tibial neurovascular bundle and sural nerve are at risk with errant pin placement during transcalcaneal pin placement. The purpose of this study was to determine a relative safe zone using a single osseous landmark to establish a technique applicable in the presence of trauma. We describe the neural anatomy anatomically and radiographically,(More)
BACKGROUND There remains no consensus regarding the role of computed tomography (CT) scans in preoperative planning for malleolar ankle fractures. The aim of this study was to determine the role of preoperative CT scans on operative planning in these fractures. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed on 100 consecutive patients treated at our(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the ability of the Harris heel view to confirm placement of the sustentacular screw during calcaneal fixation. METHODS A 4.0 cancellous screw was placed in a cadaveric specimen, from lateral to medial in 5 configurations: (1) within the sustentaculum, (2) misdirected inferiorly to sustentaculum, (3)(More)
BACKGROUND There are conflicting data regarding the benefits of delaying operative fixation of calcaneus fractures to decrease wound complication rates. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of delaying fixation on wound complication rates as well as to identify other risk factors. METHODS A retrospective review at 4 institutions, including(More)
