Six cadaver feet were used for radiological and computed tomographic (CT) evaluation. The tarsometatarsal joints of each specimen were displaced dorsolaterally in successive 1-mm increments. None of the 1-mm and two thirds of the 2-mm dorsolateral Lisfranc dislocations could be visualized on routine radiographs; they could all be noted on CT scans. There(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging was done on the wrists of 14 volunteer subjects with the wrists in the neutral position, then flexed and extended at 45 degrees. Computer enhanced cross-sectional areas were measured on each subject at the level of the hook of the hamate. In the neutral position the distance between confining structures around the median nerve is(More)
PURPOSE Wrist degeneration, resulting from scaphoid nonunion or scapholunate ligamentous disruption, is widely managed with scaphoid excision with four-corner fusion. There are no specific details in the literature regarding "salvage" of nonunion after attempted "four-corner fusions" or the patient outcomes. The purpose of this paper is to present the(More)
Seventeen cases of fibular nonunion or delayed union were seen in our institution from 1985 to 1990. All but one of these cases were associated with nonunion of the tibia which was diagnosed radiologically and/or surgically. The fibula characteristically heals before the tibia; therefore, if the fibula is slow in healing or showing nonunion, more intensive(More)
Pain or dysfunction of the finger joints due to arthritis or traumatic injuries that fail medical management may necessitate arthroplasty or joint replacement. The goals of the finger joint implant arthroplasty are to relieve pain, to correct deformity, and to improve the function and appearance of the hand. Several prosthetic implants have been used for(More)
Morphometric evaluation of 54 dry cervical spines from C3 to C7 (a total of 270 cervical vertebrae) was performed to determine the bony boundaries of the uncinate process for resection of the uncinate process for access to posterolateral osteophytes or herniated disks at the time of anterior cervical diskectomy. The uncinate processes were significantly(More)
A 27-year-old manual laborer presented with dislocation of the right elbow, complete separation of the radial head at the neck level, and avulsion of the coronoid process. Closed reduction of the elbow resulted in ulnohumeral instability. As an alternative to silastic implant, the radial head was reduced, internally fixed, and used as a spacer to restore(More)
The preservation and demonstration of anatomical specimens that retain much of their natural features has been a long-standing goal of anatomists, pathologists and other medical educators. Preservation of most biological tissues is performed using liquids such as formaldehyde, alcohol, and glycerin. Although these commonly used liquids are efficient, they(More)
Nine patients with nonunion of the tibia associated with angular deformity were treated using the Ilizarov device. Eight of these went on to heal the nonunion and had acceptable correction of the angular deformity. One patient with an atrophic nonunion and severe bone loss received a below knee amputation. The authors recommend the use of circular ring(More)
Eight cases of avulsion-type fracture of the distal fibula associated with fracture of the calcaneus, talus, or ankle region were identified. This avulsion fracture can be identified on routine radiographs as well as on CT scans of the ankle and is pathognomonic of rupture of the superior peroneal retinaculum with or without peroneal tendon displacement.(More)
