OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use CT to determine the presence of radiologic parameters associated with cam and pincer femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) in a young population without symptoms. MATERIALS AND METHODS A retrospective review of 50 patients (age range, 20-40 years) with no current or previous hip disorder who underwent CT of the(More)
BACKGROUND The British Athletics Muscle Injury Classification describes acute muscle injuries and their anatomical site within muscle based on MRI parameters of injury extent. It grades injuries from 0 to 4 and classifies location based on a myofascial (a), musculotendinous (b) or intratendinous (c) description. This is a retrospective cohort study that(More)
This study aimed to assess the accuracy and agreement between examiners when attempting to identify a single lumbar spinal level using passive intersegmental motion testing, a technique commonly used by physical therapists. Thirty-five adults were examined independently by an experienced and a novice clinician. Each examiner was asked to identify and note(More)
AIM To implement and validate the newly proposed British athletics muscle injury classification in the assessment of hamstring injuries in track and field athletes and to analyse the nature and frequency of the discrepancies. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective study analysing hamstring injuries in elite British athletes using the proposed(More)
We present details of a case of osteoid osteoma of the tarsal cuboid bone. Osteoid osteoma arising in the foot is not very common, and localization in the cuboid is rare. To our knowledge, this is the first case of osteoid osteoma of the cuboid bone treated successfully by percutaneous radiofrequency ablation.
A 19-month-old girl presented with unilateral leg bowing, ambulatory difficulties, and occasional backache. There were no systemic symptoms, and the child was otherwise fit and well. Physical examination demonstrated left genu varum and leg shortening. The left leg radiographs showed the characteristic features of focal fibrocartilaginous dysplasia (FFCD)(More)
Spinal cord injury is a rare complication of chiropractic treatment. This case report describes a 50-year-old man who developed neurological symptoms a few hours after manipulation (high velocity low amplitude [HVLA] technique) of the cervical spine. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the cervical spine revealed intramedullary high signal at the C2/3 level(More)
Tibial tubercle fractures disrupting the extensor mechanism of the knee can occur in association with complex tibial plateau fractures (AO type 41A, B, C). The management of these fractures can be difficult; a stable repair of the tibial tubercle fragment is essential if the extensor mechanism is to be reconstituted. There are few reported techniques(More)
BACKGROUND Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is a recognized major cause of early osteoarthritis in the hip and tends to present in young and active patients. The presence of morphological parameters associated with, or predisposing to FAI on radiographs can guide referral to a hip specialist for further assessment. PURPOSE To determine the presence of(More)
