BACKGROUND Measurements obtained from clinical computed tomography examinations may yield information leading to the diagnosis of decreased bone mineral density, without added expense to the patient. The purpose of the present study was to determine if Hounsfield units, a standardized computed tomography attenuation coefficient, correlate with bone mineral(More)
Two subsets of conventional dendritic cells (cDCs) with distinct cell surface markers and functions exist in mouse and human. The two subsets of cDCs are specialized antigen-presenting cells that initiate T cell immunity and tolerance. In the mouse, a migratory cDC precursor (pre-CDC) originates from defined progenitors in the bone marrow (BM). Small(More)
PURPOSE Acute elbow injuries that disrupt the lateral ulnar collateral ligament and result in posterolateral rotatory instability usually require surgical treatment. The 2 technical options reported, direct repair and use of a palmaris longus tendon graft, have usually favored the use of the graft. To balance this emphasis, we report our experience with(More)
PURPOSE To report the results of using an overhead motion protocol in 27 patients and to assess final range of motion and incidence of persistent instability in this cohort. METHODS A total of 27 patients were included who sustained a simple elbow dislocation and were treated nonsurgically with an overhead motion protocol designed to convert gravity from(More)
BACKGROUND The physical therapy profession has been perceived as one that bases its practice largely on anecdotal evidence and that uses treatment techniques for which there is little scientific support. Physical therapists have been urged to increase evidence-based practice behaviors as a means to address this perception and to enhance the translation of(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether there were differences between plate position in patients who had postoperative flexor tendon ruptures following volar plate fixation of distal radius fractures and those who did not. METHODS Three blinded reviewers measured the volar plate prominence and position on the lateral radiographs of 8 patients treated for flexor(More)
PURPOSE To identify with magnetic resonance imaging the location and severity of ligamentous injury after acute elbow dislocations. Based on observations that many elbow dislocations arise from an initial acute valgus load, we hypothesized that all patients would have a high-grade medial injury but not all would demonstrate injury of the lateral ligaments.(More)
BACKGROUND The Section on Pediatrics (SoP) convened an Education Summit in July 2012 to examine, discuss, and respond to documented inconsistencies and challenges in teaching pediatric physical therapy (PT) content in entry-level professional education programs. Despite previous attempts by the SoP to provide guidance around teaching pediatric PT,(More)
PURPOSE Acute elbow instability leading to dislocation is thought to be a spectrum initiated by an injury to the lateral stabilizing structures of the elbow. Previous cadaveric studies have shown elbow dislocations to occur in flexion. The purpose of this study was to analyze videographic evidence of the deforming forces and upper extremity position during(More)
PURPOSE Rates of evaluation and treatment for osteoporosis following distal radius fragility fractures remain low. As a subset of patients with these fractures undergo diagnostic computed tomography (CT) scan of the wrist, utilizing bone mineral density (BMD) measurements available with this imaging can be used to detect osteopenia or osteoporosis.
