Forty-two patients suspected of having stress fractures were evaluated by serial roentgenograms and by one total-body scan with detailed views of suspicious areas. Stress fracture was the ultimate clinical diagnosis in twenty-one patients, and in fifteen of them the roentgenograms were normal while the scintigram was positive. The false negative rate for(More)
The integrity of the posterior cruciate ligament is necessary for the stability of the knee. The popliteus tendon is a promising, practical, and anatomical donor for reconstructing the posterior cruciate ligament. The procedure can be performed relatively easily using a posterolateral Henderson incision in association with the standard anteromedial(More)
Lateral roentgenograms of 50 patients with spondylolisthesis were made in the recumbent and standing positions and compared. Thirteen (26%) showed an increase in the percentage of displacement on standing. Those patients with demonstrable change appeared to have a higher incidence of severe symptomatology. Apparent spondylolysis on recumbent roentgenograms(More)
The concept of muscle pain-spasm-pain vicious cycle has been challenged on the basis of inability to find electrical activity in the presence of palpable changes in fibrositic muscle. We produced muscle pain in the wrist extensor and paravertebral muscle groups of seven healthy subjects by injection of hypertonic saline (0.3 ml of 6% NaCl solution). The(More)
A 29-year-old man with coccidioidomycosis of the tarsal bones and toxic reactions to intravenous Amphotericin B was treated by surgical curettage and local suction-irrigation system of Amphotericin B. The patient responded to treatment and was free of disease 2 years later. Local suction-irrigation with Amphotericin B may be a valuable adjunct in the(More)
Operating on the pediatric lower extremity has its own inherent challenges due to the diversity of the problems, the smaller size of the patient, and the often-distorted anatomy associated with congenital malformations. Additional concerns arise with respect to positioning on the operating table to meet the surgeon's comfort, the anesthesiologist's need for(More)
