Anatomic restoration of displaced fracture-dislocation of the tarsometatarsal junction of the foot is essential, as even "minor" disruptions of this joint complex leads to poor clinical results. In order to determine a "key" element associated with good or poor functional outcomes, 11 patients with excellent radiographic results following surgical treatment(More)
Giant-cell tumor is a benign but locally aggressive primary bone tumor that requires surgical management. Most giant-cell tumors initially are demonstrated on radiographs as distal, subarticular, geographic osteolytic lesions. Abundant giant cells on histology are reactive secondary to a neoplastic fibroblast-like stromal cell. Giant cells are present in(More)
OBJECTIVES To examine the association between radiographic lumbosacral (LS) osteoarthritis (OA) and lumbar flexibility in elders without back pain or known spinal pathology and to develop a reliable grading system for osteoarthritis of the lumbosacral spine. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Durham VA and Duke University Medical Center Department of(More)
Detection and treatment of vascular injuries in extremity and pelvic trauma can be challenging. Angiography, while no longer routinely used in asymptomatic patients, is still a primary means of diagnosis. Appropriate patient selection based on physical examination, along with other less invasive imaging modalities, can decrease the need for angiography(More)
This article highlights the unique patterns of sports-related injury of the upper extremity that radiologists are likely to encounter in children and adolescents. The injuries are classified as acute "use" injuries or chronic "overuse" injuries, and reviewed separately for the shoulder, elbow, and wrist. Recommendations for imaging strategies are provided(More)
BACKGROUND While open reduction of displaced ankle fractures generally is accepted as the standard of care, relatively little is known about the health related quality of life after treatment. It is generally accepted that clinical results of treatment for supination-external rotation stage IV ankle fractures are favorable. The goal of this investigation(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the diagnostic accuracy of a dental computed tomographic software program, DentaScan, in assessing mandibular bone invasion in patients with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the oral cavity clinically fixed to the mandible. DESIGN Retrospective chart review. SETTING Academic tertiary care medical center. PATIENTS Thirty-six(More)
