PURPOSE To identify the structure of the iliotibial tract at knee level, as well as its insertions, layer arrangement, and relationship with other structures of the lateral region of the knee and to compare the findings with available literature. METHODS Ten detailed anatomic dissections were performed by using incisions as recommended by the literature(More)
Research in estimating the water status of crops is increasingly based on plant responses to water stress. Several indicators can now be used to estimate this response, the most widely available of which is leaf water potential (ΨLWP) as measured with a pressure chamber. For many annual crops, the predawn leaf water potential (ΨPLWP), assumed to represent(More)
Soft-tissue rheumatism (STR--tendinitis, bursitis, fasciitis and fibromyalgia) accounts for up to 25% of referrals to rheumatologists. The estimated prevalence of generalized hypermobility in the adult population is 5-15%. There have previously been suggestions that hypermobile individuals may be predisposed to soft-tissue trauma and subsequent(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the stability and arthrosis of the knee 10 to 15 years after arthroscopic-assisted anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with patellar tendon graft. METHODS From July 1986 to March 1991, 82 patients underwent arthroscopic-assisted ACL reconstruction with patellar tendon graft. Of these, 62 returned for follow-up evaluation(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcomes of transphyseal anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in patients with open physes. METHODS Transphyseal ACL reconstruction was performed in 26 patients with open tibial and femoral physes (physis >2 mm) by use of autogenous quadrupled hamstrings as grafts. Meniscal tearing(More)
BACKGROUND Lateral ankle sprains account for 85% of ankle lesions. HYPOTHESIS Combined open and arthroscopic procedures could improve the diagnosis and management of intra-articular lesions and allow surgeons to perform minimally invasive anatomic reconstruction of the lateral ligament complex. STUDY DESIGN Case series; Level of evidence, 4. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Early recognition of the clinical signs of ruptures of the pectoralis major muscle (PMM) in athletes by orthopaedic surgeons, physical therapists, and physical trainers may prove to be critical for patient access to surgical treatment while the injury is still in the acute phase. HYPOTHESIS Total ruptures of the PMM may yield a better outcome(More)
PURPOSE The purposes of this study were to better understand the fetal development of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL); to identify the gross anatomy of the ACL; to perform a complete histologic evaluation of the ligament, particularly with respect to the distinction between bundles; and to evaluate ACL length, diameter, cellularity, vascularity, and(More)
The importance of knee position for bodily stability is described by some authors, however Biodex Stability System (BSS) trials have not been used to assess the reliability and effects of different knee positions. The purposes of this study were to test the reliability of BSS indices using two knee positions in the measurement protocol (either permitting(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether thyroid dysfunction is found with increased frequency in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS A controlled prospective survey was conducted on a cohort of patients with RA derived from a hospital clinic and a private surburban rheumatology practice. A control group with similar demographic features was generated(More)
