Children can be seemingly invincible, with inexhaustible energy. Even the elite young athlete, however, may lack the experience to realize when his or her level of activity is increasing the risk of sustaining injuries related to overuse. Coaches, trainers, parents, and physicians need to monitor the activities of young athletes, modify factors that may(More)
Several techniques are described for fixation of Vancouver B1 femoral shaft fractures after total hip arthroplasty. Twenty-four femurs were scanned by dual x-ray absorptiometry scanned and matched for bone mineral density. Femurs were implanted with a cemented simulated total hip prosthesis with a simulated periprosthetic femur fracture distal to the stem.(More)
This study was performed to explore the tissue-level changes in mineralization caused by low-intensity ultrasound stimulation after distraction osteogenesis. Unilateral femoral lengthenings (7 mm) were performed on 34 male Sprague-Dawley rats. Half of the animals received daily ultrasound stimulation for 5 weeks; the remaining animals received sham(More)
How malunion of the distal radius affects the kinematics of the distal radioulnar joint in vivo was evaluated. A novel computed tomography image-based technique was used to quantify radioulnar motion in both wrists of 9 patients who had unilateral malunited distal radius fractures. In the injured wrists dorsal angulation averaged 21 degrees +/- 6 degrees,(More)
BACKGROUND Many treatments have been proposed for a painful chronically dislocated hip in a child with spasticity who is unable to walk. The valgus subtrochanteric femoral osteotomy was originally described as a treatment for a missed congenital hip dislocation in a young adult who was able to walk. The purpose of this study was to investigate the outcomes(More)
BACKGROUND Endoscopic release of the plantar fascia is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to open procedures for the treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis. Although most patients can be successfully treated with Achilles tendon stretching, orthoses, physical therapy and corticosteroid injections, a small percentage of patients will have symptoms(More)
Weakness of the neck extensors can lead to "dropped head syndrome", a condition of progressive cervical kyphosis in which a patient is unable to hold their head up against the force of gravity. This condition can be associated with structural abnormalities of the spine as found in ankylosing spondylitis and vertebral fractures. Neuromuscular disorders, such(More)

There are approximately 300 orthopaedic surgeons in South Carolina, a state with a population of approximately four million. There is one orthopaedic surgeon per approximately 13,000 people, which should be adequate to meet the demand for orthopaedic care. The problem is not the quantity of orthopaedic surgeons. The problem is staffing our trauma centers(More)
