One hundred consecutive superficial mass lesions in various body sites were sampled by both conventional fine needle aspiration (FNA) and by a fine needle without the application of syringe suction. The latter technique is based on the principle of capillarity and may be termed "fine needle capillary" (FNC) sampling. The two sampling techniques were(More)
Historically, the surgical treatment of bicipital pathology has been a variety of tenodesis techniques. The purpose of this study is to report the results of simple biceps tenotomy for the treatment of bicipital pathology.

Eighty-one patients with symptomatic osteoarthritis of the thumb took part in a blinded, controlled study to assess the effectiveness of 0.9 mw continuous wave HeNe laser treatment. The subjects were randomly placed in either a control group or a treatment group. In each group the carpometacarpal (CMC), metacarpophalangeal (MCP), and interphalangeal (IP)(More)
Thirty-seven uncemented primary porous coated anatomic (PCA) total hip arthroplasties (THA) that were performed in 33 patients for the diagnosis of avascular necrosis (AVN) between June 1984 and December 1986 were reexamined at four- to six-year follow-up periods. Final clinical evaluation showed an 86-point average Harris hip rating (range, 47-100 points),(More)
