To better understand the critical conversions that RNA polymerase II complexes undergo during promoter escape, we determined in vitro the precise positions of the rate-limiting step and the last step requiring negative superhelicity or TFIIE and TFIIH. We found that both steps occur after synthesis of an 8 nt RNA during the stage encompassing translocation(More)
Sacral fractures are commonly associated with pelvic ring fractures due to high-energy mechanisms of injury. An understanding of the anatomic relation of the sacrum to the lumbar spine, pelvis, and surrounding neurovascular structures is critical in evaluating functional deficits that may be associated with sacral fractures. While displaced fractures can be(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the utility of multimodal analgesia with fascia iliaca blockade and for acute pain control in patients undergoing hip arthroscopy. METHODS Thirty consecutive patients undergoing primary hip arthroscopy were prospectively studied. All patients were treated preoperatively with ultrasound-guided single(More)
We present our technique for isolated arthroscopic rotator interval closure in the treatment of mild symptomatic glenohumeral instability in the absence of a labral tear. A careful history, physical examination, and imaging help to identify a select subset of atraumatic instability patients who may benefit from this procedure, and diagnostic arthroscopy can(More)
In order to identify the predictive value of synovial fluid white blood cell (WBC) count and differential white blood cell count in identifying nonprosthetic joint infection in immunocompetent and immunosuppressed populations, we retrospectively reviewed 96 adult patients who underwent hip or knee aspiration because of symptoms suggesting a possible(More)
We present our technique for diagnosis and arthroscopic repair of a floating posterior-inferior glenohumeral ligament avulsion injury. A high degree of suspicion based on the patient's history, along with careful examination, should alert the surgeon to the existence of this lesion. By use of an anterolateral viewing portal and precisely placed posterior(More)
