BACKGROUND Several controversies exist regarding the superiority of double-bundle (DB) posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction versus single-bundle (SB) reconstruction, although DB reconstruction has been shown to restore the intact knee kinematics more closely than SB reconstruction. HYPOTHESIS Double-bundle PCL reconstruction will present(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to compare the effectiveness of interlaminar (IL) and bilateral transforaminal (TF) epidural steroid injections (ESIs) for pain reduction in patients with axial back pain resulting from herniated intervertebral disc (HIVD) and spinal stenosis (SS). METHODS Patients reporting axial back pain without radiation(More)
The purposes of this study are to confirm factors that affect the diameter of hamstring tendon autograft and to compare failure rates between the factors after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. A total of 296 patients that underwent reconstruction using hamstring tendon autograft at our clinics for ACL injury between September 2005 and June(More)
UNLABELLED The recent advances in molecular imaging techniques, using cancer-targeting nanoparticle probes, provide noninvasive tracking information on cancer cells in living subjects. Here, we report a multimodal cancer-targeted imaging system capable of concurrent fluorescence imaging, radionuclide imaging, and MRI in vivo. METHODS A cobalt-ferrite(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to analyze differences in injury mechanism, preoperative physical examination findings, combined injury pattern, and postoperative clinical results among arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, anteromedial (AM) augmentation, and posterolateral (PL) augmentation with hamstring autograft. We also(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The prevalence of colonic diverticulosis has been reported to be lower in Korea than in Western countries. This disease also shows markedly different characteristics in the Korean population. We describe herein a prospective investigation, based on colonoscopic examination, of the prevalence, clinical characteristics, and factors associated(More)
OBJECTIVE The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is one of the sources of low back pain and referred pain to the lower limb. Steroid injections have been used to treat SIJ pain, but this frequently necessitates repeated injections. Botulinum toxin (BT) type A has been shown to provide significant reduction of joint pain, and functional improvements. This study(More)
BACKGROUND Although children rarely experience spinal cord injuries (SCI), those who do are subject to various lifelong disabilities and morbidities. The aim of the present study was to retrospectively assess the characteristics of pediatric onset SCI patients and their differences among age groups. METHODS Clinical characteristics were compared in 48(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to analyze differences in the clinical results between a remnant-preserving augmentation and a double-bundle reconstruction. METHODS Between March 2008 and February 2009, we prospectively analyzed 100 cases of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with a minimum follow-up period of 2 years. There were 55 cases of(More)
PURPOSE This study was to compare the effectiveness of the translaminar, caudal, and transforaminal technique with small and large volume of injectate in the treatment of lumbosacral herniation of intervetebral disc (HIVD) or spinal stenosis (SS). METHOD Medical records reviewed retrospectively were of patients with radicular pain over 3 months and had(More)
