Twelve patients with rupture of the anterior tibial tendon are presented. Nine patients were aware of an acute event prior to their symptom onset and three were not aware of any acute event. Complete rupture of the tendon was noted in 10 patients and incomplete rupture was seen in two patients. Treatment was individualized based on age, etiology, preinjury(More)
Brachymetatarsia is an uncommon condition, and when present, it is usually asymptomatic. A case report demonstrating the use of distraction lengthening for symptomatic multiple congenital short metatarsals is presented. A 15-year-old female with congenital short third and fourth metatarsals was treated for painful transfer lesions under the second and fifth(More)
The detection of musculoskeletal sepsis, especially following joint replacement, continues to be a challenging problem. Often, even with invasive diagnostic evaluation, the diagnosis of infection remains uncertain. This is a report on the first 55 Indium-111 white blood cell (WBC) images performed in 39 patients for the evaluation of musculoskeletal sepsis.(More)
The grid radiograph, a new technique for radiographic evaluation of total hip replacements, ensures reproducible positioning of the hip and the x-ray beam. When this method was used, the images of stable acetabular and femoral components on one radiograph could be superimposed perfectly on the images of these components on subsequent radiographs. Subtle(More)
Two patients with combined rupture of the anterior tibial tendon and posterior tibial tendon are described. Both were elderly women with a gradually progressive valgus deformity of the ankle/hindfoot and severe pain. Arthrodesis procedures were performed in both patients; however, postoperative complications prevented significant clinical improvement. This(More)
A 64-year-old woman was treated for an idiopathic complete rupture of the posterior tibial tendon with transfer of the flexor digitorum longus tendon to the navicular. After an initial excellent result, she returned 41 months later after experiencing a sudden pop in the medial retromalleolar area, followed by progressive medial ankle pain. At reoperation, a(More)
Long bone fractures frequently cause limb swelling and joint stiffness, and the two effects are generally assumed to be related, an assumption long held but rarely tested. The authors investigated limb swelling and joint stiffness in rabbits with experimental 28-day healing fractures. Eleven control rabbits were treated with bilateral hind limb skeletal(More)
