Reports of subluxation of the medial head of the triceps tendon over the medial epicondyle are rare. This may be associated with symptomatic ulnar nerve compression at the elbow. We report a case of bilateral snapping triceps tendon after bilateral ulnar nerve release at the elbow with anterior submuscular transposition. Careful inspection of the triceps(More)
The authors report a randomized double-blind prospective study comparing epidural morphine 80 micrograms/kg to epidural morphine 80 micrograms/kg plus butorphanol 40 micrograms/kg in children undergoing rhizotomy. Up to 50% of children receiving epidural morphine alone will experience side effects of nausea, vomiting, pruritus, urinary retention or(More)
AWE is a prototype system for performing analysis of x86 executables in the absence of source code or debugging information. It provides a modular infrastructure for integrating static and dynamic analyses into a single workflow. One of the major challenges with performing analysis of modern software is the amount of data that must be analyzed by a human to(More)
The authors prospectively evaluated 15 patients who had undergone selective dorsal rhizotomy who were given a continuous morphine/butorphanol infusion, to determine whether variations in the postoperative pain control and side effects seen using a bolus technique could be reduced. Patients had an epidural catheter placed at the end of the operative(More)
A technique of delayed extensor tendon reconstruction and centralization using a palmaris longus tendon graft is presented. The tendon graft is woven through the base of the proximal phalanx and up and over the reconstructed extensor tendon to simulate the natural sagittal bands. As described, the technique allows gliding of the extensor tendon while(More)
