OBJECTIVE To compare the sensitivities of contiguous axial (CA) images and disc space-targeted angled axial (DSTAA) images of the lumbar spine for: (1) the detection of spondylolysis defects, and (2) the identification of disc material which has migrated away from the parent disc. MATERIALS AND METHODS Prospective imaging of the lumbar spine was performed(More)
BACKGROUND Bone marrow edema syndrome (BMES) of the foot and ankle is an uncommon and often undiagnosed disorder that, to our knowledge, has not previously been reported in the orthopaedic literature. The current study reviews a consecutive series of patients who were seen with this musculoskeletal disorder in order to highlight the clinical presentation(More)
Stress-related injuries of the pelvis are an important consideration in sports medicine. Diagnosis of stress injuries may be difficult and requires a high index of suspicion. Plain radiographs are the first step in imaging but magnetic resonance imaging is the imaging modality of choice for definitive diagnosis. Repetitive forces transferred to the bone,(More)
BACKGROUND Arthroscopic remplissage is a novel procedure recently advocated for the treatment of large Hill-Sachs lesions with recurrent anterior glenohumeral instability. We have shown previously that infraspinatus tenodesis and Bankart repair reduce the risk of recurrent instability in high-risk patients. The ability to perform this procedure(More)
BACKGROUND The study was undertaken to evaluate cardiorespiratory fitness, skeletal muscle function, and body composition of patients with newly diagnosed and untreated, postsurgical primary malignant glioma. METHODS By using a cross-sectional design, patients with clinically stable (10 +/- 7 days postsurgery) high-grade glioma (HGG; n = 25) or low-grade(More)
When administered prior to or at the time of carcinogen exposure, the phenolic antioxidants butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) are effective inhibitors of carcinogenesis in several target organs. However, chronic, postcarcinogen administration of BHT apparently enhances tumorigenesis in certain animal models for liver and lung(More)
BACKGROUND Avulsion of the flexor digitorum profundus tendon is a common injury to the hand that virtually always requires surgical repair for restoration of normal finger function. CASE DESCRIPTION We report a case of a Type III flexor digitorum profundus tendon avulsion in which the patient refused surgery yet attained nearly full active ROM and an(More)
Sports injuries at the knee are very common, not only in contact sports such as football but also in sports with jumping and pivoting. In addition, overuse injuries can affect the tendons, ligaments, and bone with degeneration, friction, and stress response. Radiologists and sports medicine professionals should be familiar with the range of injury occurring(More)
