BACKGROUND Many reconstructions of acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocations have focused on the coracoclavicular (CC) ligaments and neglected the functional contribution of the AC ligaments and the deltotrapezial fascia. PURPOSE To compare the modifications of previously published methods for direct AC reconstruction in addition to a CC reconstruction.(More)
Interferon (IFN;titer, greater than 10 units) was present in the acute-phase sera of 30 of 40 subjects with culture and/or serologically documented, naturally acquired influenza A/Brazil/78 (H1N1) and in the acute-phase sera of five of 27 subjects with an influenza-like illness of undetermined etiology. No statistical correlation existed between the(More)
A double-blind placebo-controlled trial of ribavirin was conducted in 97 young adult males naturally infected with influenza virus similar to A/Brazil/11/78 (H1N1). Ribavirin was given orally at a dose of 1,000 mg/day for five days beginning within 24 or 48 hr after onset of clinical influenza. The clinical signs and symptoms of influenza and quantitative(More)
Oxidative metabolic responses of polymorphonuclear leukocytes were assessed in 24 stressed neonates and 22 well, term infants utilizing particulate and soluble stimuli. Stressed neonatal PMNs demonstrated a depressed CL response to zymosan, whereas O2- production for both normal and stressed PMNs of neonates was significantly elevated compared to that in(More)
In a double-blind controlled study lasting 6 weeks, 32 schizophrenic patients were randomly assigned to one of two treatments: chlorpromazine or benserazide, a dopa decarboxylase inhibitor. Results on each measure were subject to multifactorial analysis of covariance. Benserazide did not appear to be as effective an antipsychotic medicaiton as(More)
There has been a resurgence in the use of opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (owHTO). Calcium phosphate cement has been shown to improve strength in compression for augmentation of tibial plateau and owHTO fixation. However, knee kinematics includes a torsional load during ambulation, which is as yet unstudied in this model. The purpose of this paper is to(More)
BACKGROUND Traditional Bankart repair using bone tunnels has a reported failure rate between 0% and 5% in long-term studies. Arthroscopic Bankart repair using suture anchors has become more popular; however, reported failure rates have been cited between 4% and 18%. There have been no satisfactory explanations for the differences in these outcomes. (More)
