OBJECTIVE To identify sociodemographic differences in the incidence of the subtypes of first ever stroke in a multiethnic population. METHODS A prospective community stroke register (1995-8) was developed using multiple notification sources and pathological and clinical classifications of stroke. Standardisation of rates was to European and World(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We sought to examine the frequency, predictors, and effects of nontreatment with antithrombotic and antihypertensive therapies 3 months after ischemic stroke. METHODS The population-based South London Community Stroke Register prospectively collected data on first-in-a-lifetime strokes between 1995 and 1997. Among patients(More)
BACKGROUND Syndesmosis ankle sprains cause greater disability and longer duration of recovery than lateral ankle sprains. OBJECTIVE To describe the severity of syndesmosis sprains using several accepted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) criteria and to assess the interrater reliability of diagnosing syndesmosis injury using these same criteria in(More)
A case of a latissimus dorsi myotendinous junction strain in an avid CrossFit athlete is presented. The patient developed acute onset right axillary burning and swelling and subsequent palpable pop with weakness while performing a "muscle up." Magnetic resonance imaging examination demonstrated a high-grade tear of the right latissimus dorsi myotendinous(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Percutaneous cryoablation has emerged as a minimally invasive technique for the management of osseous metastases. The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and effectiveness of percutaneous imaging-guided spine cryoablation for pain palliation and local tumor control for vertebral metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES To develop comprehensive and reliable radiation-free methods to quantify femoral and acetabular morphology using MRI. METHODS 32 hips (16 subjects, 6 with intra-articular hip disorder (IAHD); 10 controls) were included. A 1.5T magnetic resonance system was used to obtain 3D fat suppressed gradient echo images at the pelvis and distal femora.(More)
