BACKGROUND The sagittal relationship of the talus to the tibial shaft can prove invaluable to the orthopedist in understanding and effectively treating ankle pathologies such as ligamentous laxity and ankle arthritis. Any useful radiographic analysis tool to assess the lateral position of the talus must be employable reliably in the clinical setting.(More)
UNLABELLED Part III of a review series on neurological complications of orthopedic surgery, this article describes the mechanisms and likelihood of peripheral nerve injury associated with some of the most common elective foot and ankle procedures for which anesthesiologists may administer regional anesthesia. Relevant information is broadly organized(More)
BACKGROUND Transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) is the mainstay of management for patients with hepatocellular carcinoma who are not suitable for curative treatments. OBJECTIVE To determine factors associated with mortality after the first TACE procedure. METHODS From January 2004 to May 2008, 60 patients underwent TACE as treatment for hepatocellular(More)
BACKGROUND Longevity of total ankle replacement (TAR) depends heavily on anatomic alignment. The lateral talar station (LTS) classifies the sagittal position of the talus relative to the tibia. We hypothesized that correcting the sagittal distal tibial articular angle (sDTAA) during TAR would anatomically realign the tibiotalar joint and potentially reduce(More)
BACKGROUND Non-operative management of blunt hepatic trauma is successful in the majority of hemodynamically stable patients. Due to the risk of recurrent hemorrhage, pharmacologic deep venous thrombosis (DVT) prophylaxis is often delayed. The optimal timing of prophylaxis is unclear. A multi-centre, retrospective review of patients with blunt hepatic(More)
