A biomechanical study was performed to assess quantitative differences in the stability obtained with five commonly used types of internal fixation used in proximal phalangeal fractures. The techniques included dorsal plating, dorsal plating combined with an interfragmentary lag screw, two interfragmentary lag screws, tension-band technique, and crossed(More)
We reviewed the cases of sixty-three patients who were more than forty years old when they underwent arthroscopic partial medial meniscectomy. Thirty-five patients returned for clinical evaluation and another eight were evaluated by questionnaire and telephone interview. Over the thirty-five-month follow-up period, progressive varus deformity and medial(More)
A biomechanical study assessed quantitative differences in the stability that was obtained by five commonly used types of internal fixation employed in metacarpal fractures. The techniques included dorsal plating, dorsal plating combined with an interfragmentary lag screw, crossed Kirschner wires, a single intraosseous wire combined with a single oblique(More)
An osteotomy of the first cuneiform was performed on eighteen feet in fourteen patients with residual deformity of congenital club foot. The average correction was 72 per cent for the adduction of the fore part of the foot and 47 per cent for the equinus deformity of the fore part of the foot.
A retrospective analysis of 62 patients with 78 congenital dislocations of the hip (CDH) referred to Children's Hospital at Stanford was done to ascertain whether CDH was being diagnosed as early as had been thought possible and whether various treatments were effective. In this series there were a substantial number of cases of CDH that were not diagnosed(More)
