We performed a systematic review of the literature to compare the clinical outcomes of the management of three and four part fractures of the proximal humerus by conservative regimes, internal and external fixations and arthroplasty. We identified 147 reports of comparative trials and case series between 1969 and 1999. We selected only studies dealing(More)
Vascular causes of exertional lower extremity pain are relatively rare, but may be the answer in athletes refractory to treatment for the more common overuse syndromes of the lower extremities. It is important to differentiate these vascular causes from chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS), medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS), and stress(More)
Meningitis and the clinical syndrome of acute meningococcemia are well-described sequelae from infections caused by Neisseria meningitidis. Within the realm of this syndrome, secondary sites of infection are not uncommon. There is a concomitant septic arthritis in 11% of cases of meningococcemia. We describe below the rare clinical scenario of a 29-year-old(More)
The Reg3 peptides INGAP-PP and human Reg3α/β (HIP) have been hypothesized to stimulate β-cell neogenesis in the pancreas. Administration of INGAP-PP has been shown to cause an increase in β-cell mass in multiple animal models, reverse streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetes in mice and reduces HbA1c levels in type 2 diabetic humans. In this study, we have(More)
Gastrointestinal (GI) complaints are common among athletes with rates in the range of 30% to 70%. Both the intensity of sport and the type of sporting activity have been shown to be contributing factors in the development of GI symptoms. Three important factors have been postulated as contributing to the pathophysiology of GI complaints in athletes:(More)
BACKGROUND Few studies have examined acute injuries in track and field in both elite and subelite athletes. PURPOSE To observe the absolute number and relative rates of injury in track and field athletes across a wide range of competition levels and ages during 3 years of the Penn Relays Carnival to assist with future medical coverage planning and injury(More)
Acupuncture, an ancient traditional Chinese medical therapy, is used widely around the world. When practiced by a certified provider, it is safe and patients often find it calming and relaxing. Animal and human studies have found a physiologic basis for acupuncture needling in that it affects the complex central and peripheral neurohormonal network.(More)
Background: Turner’s syndrome (TS) arising from partial or complete X chromosomal monosomy is the most common genetic disorder in females. In South Asian countries like India diagnosis and care of patients with TS is still in the developing stage. Hence this study was undertaken to review details of patients with TS, diagnosed in the Division of Human(More)
This study aimed to observe the incidence rates of hamstring strain injuries (HSIs) across different competition levels and ages during the Penn Relays Carnival. Over a 3-year period, all injuries treated by the medical staff were recorded. The type of injury, anatomic location, event in which the injury occurred, competition level, and demographic data(More)
Through extensive survey analysis, we investigated expert opinion in sports medicine. The study had 3 purposes: to provide clinical guidance for cases in which the correct action is not necessarily apparent, to examine expert opinion itself, and to delineate areas of future study. A total of 500 members of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine(More)
