OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficacy, safety and carry-over effect of diacerein, in comparison to piroxicam, in the treatment of Thai patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA). DESIGN This was a double-blind, randomised, piroxicam-controlled, parallel-group study. A 7-day non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug washout period was followed by a 16-week(More)
BACKGROUND There is uncertainty as to whether supplemental oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication improves the effectiveness of steroid injections in the treatment of de Quervain disease. We tested the hypothesis that there are no significant differences in the success rates when this condition is treated with triamcinolone injection with or without(More)
Melioidosis is an infection caused by a gram-negative bacilli, Pseudomonas pseudomallei. This organism can cause fatal infection in domestic animals and are probably transmitted to humans by soil contamination of skin abrasions, ingestion, and inhalation. Melioidosis is being increasingly diagnosed in Western countries in other than its endemic areas of(More)
We used ultrasonography in ten children with pulled elbow to compare measurements of the radiocapitellar distance (RCD) on the affected and the unaffected sides. Similar measurements were made in a group of ten age-matched normal children. The mean RCD in pronation of the affected and normal sides in the patients with pulled elbows was 7.2 mm +/- 0.7 and(More)
During a four-year period, twenty-one patients were found to have melioidosis of the musculoskeletal system caused by Pseudomonas pseudomallei. The melioidotic patients were matched with thirty-nine patients who had a musculoskeletal infection due to some other organism, and the two groups were compared with regard to the presence of concurrent disease. The(More)
A prospective study involving 190 patients presenting with symptoms suggesting internal derangements of the knee was performed to demonstrate the likelihood of symptoms and signs produced by medial patellar plica to mimic those of medial meniscal lesions. Arthroscopic examination was done in each patient by an independent examiner after the establishment of(More)
Several methods for the correction of cubitus varus have been described, but most reported series are small and show a high rate of complications. We report a six-year personal experience of 77 osteotomies by a new technique which provides rigid fixation and allows correction of both varus and rotation deformities. It also prevents lateral bulging at the(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the reliability of Thai version of the medical outcomes study short-form survey version 2.0 (SF-36V2) in low back pain patients. MATERIAL AND METHOD The authors developed the Thai version of the Medical Outcomes Study Short-Form Survey version 2.0 (SF-36V2) and tested it in 100 low back pain patients. Reliability of the Thai(More)
A new application of operative ultrasound to help assess the fracture alignment for closed reduction and passing the guide wire in closed femoral nailing is described. This method can be used instead of fluoroscopic monitoring in certain important steps which can markedly reduce the exposure time of fluoroscopic monitoring. Nine of ten cases were successful(More)
