The avulsion of the glenohumeral ligament labral complex at the glenoid (Bankart lesion), as well as ligamentous laxity are well known causes of anterior shoulder instability. A lesser known entity, the humeral avulsion of glenohumeral ligaments (HAGL), was studied to determine its incidence and its role in anterior glenohumeral instability. Sixty-four(More)
Giant cell tumor of bone is a challenging clinicopathologic entity. Despite its benign designation, it has the capacity to recur locally and develop rare pulmonary metastases. Between 1945 and 1991, 104 patients with histologically benign giant cell tumors of bone, 5 of which metastasized to the lung, were treated at the authors' institution. In these(More)
Thirty children aged between 2 and 10 years with fractures of the femoral shaft were involved in a prospective study of a treatment method that requires a short period of traction followed by full weightbearing with a modified hinged functional brace and return to school after an average of 32.5 days. At an average follow-up period of 2 years, no case has(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of traditional risk factors on the association between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism and stroke was rarely studied previously. We investigated such effect in Taiwanese type 2 diabetic patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 872 (422 men and 450 women) patients aged 63.5 (SD: 11.6)(More)
Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a proliferative disorder of the synovium affecting joints, bursae, or tendon sheaths. PVNS is further classified into diffuse and localized forms and rarely affects the shoulder. We report a case of nodular synovitis of the shoulder after arthroscopic and open anterior capsulolabral reconstruction. The(More)
Postexercise cold water immersion has been advocated to athletes as a means of accelerating recovery and improving performance. Given the effects of cold water immersion on blood flow, evaluating in vivo changes in tissue oxygenation during cold water immersion may help further our understanding of this recovery modality. This study aimed to investigate the(More)
