Giant cell tumour (GCT) is a benign, but aggressive, primary tumour of the bone. The recurrence rate after surgical treatment has been reported to be as high as 50%. Many surgical techniques have been employed in the treatment of this tumour. More aggressive interventions, such as en bloc resection and bulk allograft or prosthetic reconstruction, are(More)
We report on our treatment of fractures of the calcaneus in childhood. Nearly all cases can be treated by conservative methods with good results as regards both anatomy and function. Occasionally consider operative treatment to be indicated even in childhood. We discuss a rare case of bilateral intraarticular fracture of the calcaneus with severe(More)
PURPOSE Wrist ganglions are the most common soft tissue tumors of the hand and wrist and can occur at any age. Their etiology remains controversial. A high prevalence of associated intrinsic ligamentous lesions has been described. We hypothesized that painful wrist ganglions are an indicator of an underlying joint abnormality, particularly of lesions of the(More)
MR microscopy using an ultra high-field MR system is a novel non-invasive imaging technique to explore the human eye without optical distortions. This review aims to provide an insight into the technique. Normal MR microscopic anatomy of the human eye in vivo is demonstrated and clinical applications of MR microscopy are discussed.
This clinical report refers to a case of quadriplegia caused by a knife stab wound in the cervical spine. Open removal of the knife made it possible to avoid such complications as bleeding and infection. Nevertheless, the tetraplegic signs and symptoms were the result of complete severance of the cervical spinal cord and therefore persisted.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with small surface coils is a well established method for the diagnostic evaluation of finger masses. Until now, histological examination has been required to reliably assess tumor extent and infiltration of surrounding structures. Ultra-high-field MR microscopy (MRM) allows evaluation of anatomical structures and(More)
Internal fixation of dorsolumbar spinal fractures can be accomplished by dorsal plating or internal fixator. So far, the technique of transpedicular grafting has been applied to fill the vertebral body with cancellous bone. In this paper, we present a new technique of extended transpedicular bone grafting to fill the intervertebral space also. By this(More)
Ultra-high-field MR microscopy is a novel, non-invasive imaging technique to explore the strcutures of the human eye without optical distorsions. This review aims to provide an insight into the technique of the method. The normal MR microscopic anatomy of the human eye with correlations to histology is demonstrated. The use of MR microscopy in ther(More)
