The anterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligament is the most important restraint for preventing traumatic anterior glenohumeral instability. The condition of this ligament markedly affects the results of arthroscopic Bankart repair. We compared non-arthrographic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in abduction and external rotation and arthroscopic(More)
We investigated the usefulness of a radial-sequence magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique in the visualization of the acetabular labrum, which surrounds the acetabulum. In 22 hip joints of 12 volunteers, T2-weighted images were obtained on 24 radial planes of the acetabular rim, set at 15 degrees -intervals, using the small tip angle gradient echo(More)
Arthroscopic Bankart repair, using staples, requires a thick and wide anterior band of the inferior glenohumeral ligament. We compared MRI and arthroscopic findings of the ligament in 81 shoulders with traumatic anterior glenohumeral instability. When fluid was present in the shoulder, sensitivity and specificity of the MRI evaluation for the presence of a(More)
OBJECTIVE To numerically express morphologic conditions and signal intensity in the acetabular labrum of the weight-bearing portion of hip joints in patients with hip dysplasia. METHODS Using a radial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique, where the planes are set radially centered on the midpoint of acetabulum, and which depicts the entire(More)
Hip dysplasia is an important cause of osteoarthrosis of the hip, especially in Japanese. Recently, the role of the acetabular labrum in hip diseases has attracted the attention of researchers, but the condition of the labrum in the dysplastic hips has not been described. We used radial MRI to measure the degree of coverage of the femoral head by the(More)
We carried out radial MRI in 30 hips with moderate osteoarthritis and in ten normal hips. On a scout view containing the entire acetabular rim, 12 vertical radial slices were set at 15 degrees intervals. Different appearances were observed in different parts of the joint. In the weight-bearing portion, from 45 degrees anterosuperior to 45 degrees(More)
Sequential magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed on a 38-year-old woman with systemic lupus erythematosus who had received corticosteroid and had developed non-traumatic osteonecrosis of the femoral head. The initial MR finding was a band lesion on the T1-weighted image, which had been present before the onset of symptoms. At the onset of symptoms,(More)
Although epidemiological studies on epiphyseal injury have been reported, such studies have not been made systematically in Japan. In this study, we examined the incidence of epiphyseal injury in paediatric patients treated at five general hospitals and three private clinics. We treated the patients with limb injuries between January 1992 and December 1997,(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between abnormal acetabular labrum depicted by radial magnetic resonance and progressive joint space narrowing (JSN) of hip dysplasia. METHODS Subjects were 23 joints [21 patients; mean age: 35.1 years (16-53 years)] that had acetabular dysplasia with lateral center-edge angle of Wiberg(More)
