BACKGROUND The purpose of the study was to assess the ability of arthroscopic anterior release, +/- tendon transfers to maintain shoulder joint alignment in children with brachial plexus palsy, and to assess their outcome after arthroscopic reduction. METHODS Forty-four patients underwent arthroscopic release, +/- tendon transfers to realign a dysplastic(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate that surgical repair of partial distal biceps tendon ruptures allows return of supination and flexion strength nearly equal to the contralateral side without compromising range of motion. METHODS We performed a retrospective study of 17 patients with unilateral partial biceps tendon ruptures who underwent surgical repair between(More)
Widespread adoption of digital eye-tracking systems requires a substantial drop in prices from current levels. In this paper, we examine the feasibility of creating a low-cost device to track the eye position of a computer user. The device operates in real-time using prototype Jitter software at over 9 frames per second on an Apple PowerBook laptop. The(More)
BACKGROUND The anterior humeral line is used to assess displacement and the adequacy of reduction of supracondylar humeral fractures in children. It is said to pass through the middle third of the capitellum in the elbow of a normal child. Few reports in the published literature have discussed this measurement, and the intra-rater and inter-rater(More)
Hip fractures account for <1% of all pediatric fractures. Most are caused by high-energy mechanisms, but pathologic hip fractures also occur, usually from low-energy trauma. Complications occur at a high rate because the vascular and osseous anatomy of the child's proximal femur is vulnerable to injury. Surgical options vary based on the child's age, Delbet(More)
PURPOSE To quantitatively define the anatomic insertions of the transverse carpal ligament (TCL) to the carpals. METHODS We dissected 5 fresh-frozen cadaver limbs, isolating the TCL. The ligament insertion sites into bone were clearly marked and photographed. We then used computer software to measure the area of insertion into the individual carpals. (More)
