To investigate the cause of valgus deformity of the hindfoot in patients who have rheumatoid arthritis and to characterize the effects of the deformity on gait, two groups of patients were evaluated clinically, radiographically, and with gait analysis in the laboratory. Group 1 consisted of seven patients who had seropositive rheumatoid arthritis and normal(More)
Lesions of heterotopic ossification were excised from thirty-seven joints in twenty-three adults who had had injuries to the brain. The lesions were excised from twenty-three elbows, twelve hips, and two shoulders. Patients were retrospectively divided into five categories according to the neural residua (cognitive and physical deficits). The patients in(More)
Heterotopic ossification associated with neurologic injury, or neurogenic heterotopic ossification, tends to form at major synovial joints surrounded by spastic muscles. It is commonly associated with traumatic brain or spinal cord injury and with other causes of upper motor neuron lesions. Heterotopic ossification can result in a variety of complications,(More)
UNLABELLED Rodent species are widely used in the testing and approval of new radiopharmaceuticals, necessitating murine phantom models. As more therapy applications are being tested in animal models, calculating accurate dose estimates for the animals themselves becomes important to explain and control potential radiation toxicity or treatment efficacy.(More)
Upper extremity deformity of ischemic contracture usually includes elbow flexion, forearm pronation, wrist flexion, thumb flexion and adduction, digital metacarpophalangeal joint extension, and interphalangeal joint flexion. Treatment of mild contractures consists of either nonoperative management with a comprehensive rehabilitation program (to increase(More)
The field of orthopedics has a limited ability to recruit high-quality female applicants. The purpose of this study was to determine whether early exposure to the field affects a woman's decision to pursue orthopedics. We performed a prospective, nonrandomized cohort study between academic years 2005 and 2009 and compared interest in orthopedic surgery(More)
Ninety consecutive patients with hemiplegic involvement following a single cerebrovascular accident were studied to assess the relative importance of factors affecting balance and ambulation. Only 50% of the patients achieved a community level of ambulation. Intact balance reactions correlated strongly with the ability to walk (r = 0.79). Balance was found(More)
UNLABELLED We retrospectively reviewed 17 consecutive patients with neurologic injuries (22 knees) who had excision of heterotopic ossification (22 knees, five bilateral) of the knees. Our primary research goal was to determine the change in range of motion at the knee after resection of heterotopic ossification in patients with neurologic injuries. Our(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the logic behind instrumented gait analysis, its specific contribution to clinical and surgical decision making is not well known. Our purpose in this study was to determine the influence of gait analysis with dynamic electromyography upon surgical planning in patients with upper motor neuron syndrome and gait dysfunction. METHODS Two(More)
