Seven patients who had pain in the anterior aspect of the ankle were found to have a thickened distal fascicle of the anteroinferior tibiofibular ligament. Each patient had a history of an inversion sprain of the ankle followed by chronic pain in the anterior aspect of the ankle. The thickened distal fascicle was resected without loss of stability of the(More)
Acute hamstring muscle strains occurring in ten college athletes were evaluated using computed tomography to identify the location and characteristics of these common injuries. Acute muscle strains appeared as areas of hypodensity within the muscle 1-2 d following injury. This suggests that inflammation and edema are the major component of injury, not(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this study was the clinical evaluation of arthroscopic meniscal repair results with the use of 3 different repair devices. METHODS From 2001 to 2006, 265 patients underwent 280 meniscal repairs (RapidLoc [DePuy Mitek, Raynham, MA] in 88 patients, T-Fix [Acufex Microsurgical, Mansfield, MA] in 85 patients, and FasT-Fix [Smith & Nephew(More)
This study correlates force generation and healing in muscle after controlled strain injury. Right tibialis anterior (TA) muscles from 30 rabbits were strained to approximately 80% of failure while the left TA muscles served as control. Both injured and control muscles were then tested for ability to generate force. Seven animals were sacrificed immediately(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Non-functioning pancreatic endocrine tumours (NFPET) constitute the largest component (35-50%) of pancreatic endocrine tumours. They are characterized by the absence of symptoms of hormone hypersecretion and frequently have clinical manifestations similar to the more common exocrine pancreatic adenocarcinoma. The present studyaims toevaluate(More)
Dynamic Behavior of the Dispersion of Ventricular Repolarization. The aim of this study was to evaluate the circadian variation in the spatial dispersion of ventricular repolarization in continuously paced patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). Fourteen patients (10 males, 4 females, aged 65 +/- 8 years) with CHF due to dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM)(More)
In recent years much effort has been devoted to finding a satisfactory replacement for the injured ACL. None of the reconstruction techniques used in the past can be considered ideal because of their inability to duplicate the complex geometry, structure, and function of the ligament. Current advances in allograft transplantation and cryopreservation have(More)
PURPOSE Significant controversy exists regarding the potential harm to the growth plate following reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament in skeletally immature patients. This study was performed to evaluate the results of a transepiphyseal replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament in skeletally immature patients. METHODS Ninety-four(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the gait variability of patients with isolated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency (experimental group) with that of healthy individuals (control group). The hypothesis was that the gait variability of the experimental group would be higher than the control group. The experimental group consisted of 20 men(More)
This study investigates the biomechanical failure properties of five architecturally different skeletal muscles and examines the role muscle structure plays in the passive extension characteristics of musculotendinous units. The muscles used in this study fall into four morphologic categories: fusiform, unipennate, bipennate, and multipennate. Each muscle(More)
