Ketoprofen, 25, 50, and 100 mg, was compared with 90 mg codeine and placebo for relief of pain due to removal of impacted third molar teeth. Treatment was self-administered as a single oral dose under double-blind conditions in five parallel groups established by a random code in healthy young adults. Based on 129 patient evaluations of pain experience and(More)
Twenty patients with 21 total joint replacements including 17 hips and 4 knees were studied by plain film radiography, radionuclide imaging, and subtraction arthrography to evaluate these procedures for assessing prosthetic complications. Surgery was performed in 14 patients and confirmed loosening of 8 femoral and 7 acetabular hip prosthesis components and(More)
Two cases of a craniotubular hyperostosis are presented. The radiographic features closely resemble Van Buchem disease (hyperostosis corticalis generalisata; endosteal hyperostosis, recessive type), including symmetrical and bilateral diaphyseal cortical thickening of the long and short tubular bones as well as sclerosis and thickening of the calvaria,(More)
Fractures through the disc or juxta-end plate region of the vertebra as well as the posterior elements have been observed in the thoracic and lumbar spine in ankylosing spondylitis. These are usually associated with increasing pain, usually do not produce neurologic deficit, and may require orthopedic fixation to heal. Irregularity and sclerosis at the(More)
As total knee replacement becomes more successful due to advances in surgery and bioengineering, a greater number of patients will be offered this procedure as a viable alternative to arthrodesis. Radiologic consultation will be sought for evaluation of proper alignment as well as postoperative complications such as loosening, instability, dislocation,(More)
Mycoplasma arthritidis and Mycoplasma pulmonis induced chronic arthritis in rabbits on intraarticular injection, characterized by joint swelling and histologic evidence of chronic active inflammation persisting at least one year. Cartilage and bone destruction was a prominent late feature of M arthritidis but not M pulmonis disease. Despite the progressive(More)
Although synovial cysts are most commonly associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, they may occur in many other conditions. The clinical manifestations of these cysts are numerous and may result from pressure, dissection or acute rupture. Vascular phenomena occur when popliteal cysts compress vessels, and result in venous stasis with(More)
OBJECTIVE HIV-positive individuals commonly have symptoms of airway disease. We evaluated thin-section CT scans of HIV-infected individuals during inspiration and expiration for evidence of focal air trapping. We also correlated imaging findings with pulmonary function test results. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Fifty-nine subjects, 48 of whom were HIV-positive(More)
Chondral fractures are a distinct clinical entity and should be distinguished from the more frequently recognized osteochondral fracture. They occur most often in the medial femoral condyle of young adults following a rotational injury or direct blow to the knee. Clinically, the chondral fracture mimics a torn meniscus and may or may not be associated with(More)
