A prospective study was performed to determine the reliability of analysis of intraoperative frozen sections for the identification of infection during 175 consecutive revision total joint arthroplasties (142 hip and thirty-three knee). The mean interval between the primary and the revision arthroplasty was 7.3 years (range, three months to twenty-three(More)
We performed a retrospective analysis of thirty-three consecutive total hip and knee (twenty-three hip and ten knee) revision arthroplasties during which intraoperative frozen sections were analyzed. Data for the study were collected by means of a review of the charts, radiographic analysis, and evaluation of both frozen and permanent histological sections.(More)
 Aneurysmal bone cyst of the long bones in a purely intracortical or subperiosteal location is unusual. Three such cases are reported, and the radiographic and pathologic differential diagnoses are discussed.Those subperiosteal or intracortical aneurysmal bone cysts with radiographic features similar to the intramedullary variety should suggest the same(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, intra-articular viscosupplementation with hyaluronate-derived products has gained popularity as a palliative modality for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee. Mild pain or swelling at the site of injection may occur in up to 20% of patients, although severe local inflammation, warmth, and joint effusion are rare. We present a(More)
This article describes a patient with a 10-year history of persistent ankle pain. Differential diagnosis included osteoid osteoma and anterior ankle impingement. This patient subsequently underwent arthroscopic excision of a lesion on the talar neck following a complete radiographic work-up, which was nondiagnostic. The diagnosis of osteoid osteoma was(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the effectiveness of a two-stage exchange protocol for the treatment of deep periprosthetic infection, infection can persist after resection arthroplasty and treatment with antibiotics, leading to a failed second-stage reconstruction. Intraoperative analysis of frozen sections has been shown to have a high sensitivity and specificity for(More)
 Objective.To demonstrate the radiologic and pathologic manifestations of osteoid osteoma arising beneath the periosteum, on the surface of the bone. Design. One hundred and sixty osteoid osteomas were seen over a 30-year period. The radiologic, pathologic and operative findings of those that were subperiosteal were reviewed. Patients. Eleven patients with(More)
Anatomical, histological, and histochemical studies were performed on normal and abnormal fat pads of the sole of cadaver feet. The fat pads were found to contain a significant nerve and blood supply separate from that to the surrounding musculature and skin. Pacinian corpuscles and free nerve endings within the fat were identified. Histological analysis(More)
Intracapsular or paraarticular chondromas are seldom mentioned in the literature. They generally occur in the area around the knee, and must be recognized and differentiated from other soft-tissue tumors that appear at this site such as sarcomas containing focal calcification or ossification, and from other cartilaginous lesions such as synovial(More)
