PURPOSE To evaluate clinical response to treatment of calcified tendinitis of the shoulder by using a modified percutaneous ultrasonography (US)-guided fine-needle technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty shoulders of 30 consecutive patients (23 women, seven men; mean age, 47.4 years) with chronic shoulder pain (average duration, 43.1 months) refractory to(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this article is to describe a simplified fluoroscopically guided technique of shoulder joint injection that uses the rotator cuff interval. CONCLUSION Shoulder arthrography using an anterior approach through the rotator cuff interval is an effective, rapid, and easy-to-perform injection technique. In most patients, this(More)
One of the most important prognostic factors in patients with musculoskeletal infections is the delay in establishing therapy. Early diagnosis of septic arthritis requires analysis of joint fluid. Ultrasonography (US) is a rapid, portable, sensitive technique for confirming the presence of joint effusions. The study can be easily repeated for follow-up of(More)
PURPOSE To report the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings in seven patients with posterior ankle impingement (PAI) syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven patients-three ballet dancers, one badminton player, one soccer player, one hockey player, and one construction worker-who presented with posterior ankle pain were assessed with MR imaging. Their(More)
We report on the MRI findings in the vertebrae and surrounding soft tissues in two patients with the SAPHO syndrome (Synovitis, Acne, Pustulosis, Hyperostosis, Osteitis). The MRI findings include abnormal bone marrow signal, either focal or diffuse, of the vertebral bodies and posterior elements; hyperintense paravertebral soft tissue swelling and abnormal(More)
This review article presents the current knowledge on the epidemiology and the pathogenesis of calcific tendinopathy of the shoulder and discusses the clinical presentation in relation to the stage of the disease process and the appearance of the calcific deposits. The outcome and the available treatment modalities for this common shoulder disorder are also(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of acetic acid iontophoresis on the treatment of calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder. DESIGN Double-blind randomized controlled trial. SETTING Ambulatory academic hospital in Quebec, Canada. PARTICIPANTS Thirty-six subjects with a calcifying tendinitis of the shoulder. INTERVENTIONS Subjects were randomized into 1(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the absorption of a lysophosphatidylcholine, monoglyceride, and fatty acid matrix (organized lipid matrix, OLM) with that of a triacylglycerol (TG)-based fat meal in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). STUDY DESIGN Five adolescents with CF and 3 control patients were given fat meals supplemented with retinyl palmitate of either OLM(More)
 The authors present a review of the anatomy of the major bursae around the shoulder joint and discuss the use of the different imaging modalities which demonstrate their radiologic features. The calcified subacromial-subdeltoid bursa has a characteristic appearance on plain radiographs. When inflamed it can be visualized by ultrasound and magnetic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to describe new mechanisms responsible for the snapping iliopsoas tendon using dynamic sonography. MATERIALS AND METHODS We reviewed the video recordings obtained during dynamic sonography studies used to establish the diagnosis of 18 snapping iliopsoas tendons in 14 patients (nine females and five males; age range,(More)
