We present a retrospective report of 50 patients (31 autograft and 19 allograft patients) who underwent arthroscopic bone-patellar tendon-bone anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions between August 1988 and September 1990. All patients were followed for a minimum of 2 years. The purpose of this study was to analyze each group regarding hospital(More)
Images of five cadaver ankles and three normal volunteers were obtained in an attempt to delineate magnetic resonance (MR) anatomy of the tarsal tunnel. Multiplanar T1-weighted (TE 20 msec, TR 600 msec) scans were obtained of the cadaver specimens while T1 and T2 weighted (TE 20, 80 msec, TR 2000 msec) scans were obtained of the volunteer ankles. After(More)
Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS) is an entrapment neuropathy caused by compression of the posterior tibial nerve beneath the ankle flexor retinaculum. Treatment of TTS consists of surgical release of the retinaculum. The failure rate is 10%-20%. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging was used to evaluate a patient with an unsatisfactory response. MR imaging(More)
BACKGROUND Protracted bacterial bronchitis is a major cause of persistent cough in childhood. The organisms most commonly isolated are nontypable Haemophilus influenzae and Streptococcus pneumoniae . There are no studies addressing typing of these organisms when recovered from the lower airways. METHODS Isolates of these two organisms (identified in BAL(More)
During the past ten years, the frequency of bilateral simultaneous intraocular surgery has increased and the majority have been cataract extractions. Two hundred and fifty-one patients have had this operation. The pre- and postoperative acuities and the complications have been tabled and the assessment indicates that this is a safe and successful approach(More)
A motor vehicle accident victim presented with a fractured acetabulum and had apparent entrapped bony intraarticular fragments seen on computed tomography scanning. At surgery, these fragments were found to be a partially avulsed calcified ligamentum teres that was apparently caused by a previous injury of the same hip. Excision of the calcified ligament(More)
Fracture-dislocation of the ankle with fixed displacement of the fibula behind the tibia (Bosworth fracture-dislocation) is infrequently encountered in clinical practice. The diagnosis of this entity is often overlooked due to an inability to correlate clinical findings with roentgenographic data. The mismanagement that follows an incorrect diagnosis may(More)
Two hundred and twenty-one patients in slow-stream geriatric wards in the Portsmouth district were questioned about their vision; 159 of these were examined. It was possible to give help with vision to 21 per cent of patients and to give a further 6 percent help with other eye problems. Eighteen months later, when half the patients examined had died, 14 per(More)
