We sought to determine prospectively the natural history of acute, isolated, nonoperatively treated posterior cruciate ligament injuries in athletically active patients. The study population consisted of 133 patients (average age, 25.2 years at time of injury). All patients completed a subjective questionnaire each year for an average of 5.4 years (range,(More)
For 714 consecutive patients who underwent autogenous patellar tendon graft anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions we intraoperatively measured intercondylar notch width. We prospectively recorded height, weight, sex, and which patients subsequently tore their contralateral anterior cruciate ligament or the 10-mm autograft. The patients were divided(More)
Anatomic variations in tibial nerve branches may help explain discrepancies between clinical examination and electrophysiologic tests as to the location of neuronal lesions. Dissection of 20 cadaveric feet (10 pair) along the course of the tibial nerve and its branches confirmed that it bifurcates within 2 cm of the medio-malleolar-calcaneal axis in 90%(More)
A case of a large renal angiomyolipoma in a relatively asymptomatic female subject without tuberous sclerosis is presented. The case demonstrates a parasitized blood supply from a lumbar artery and the superior mesenteric artery, in addition to the characteristic angiographic features that have been reported previously. A parasitized blood supply to renal(More)
We sought to determine whether participation in a functional sports agility program as early as 4 weeks after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with autogenous patellar tendon graft would affect objective knee stability in 603 patients. The rehabilitation program prescribed a functional sports agility program at a mean of 5.1 +/- 1.0 weeks(More)
Percutaneous transluminal coronary balloon angioplasty (PTCA) has had limited success with higher complication and restenosis rates in aorto-ostial lesions. Directional coronary atherectomy (DCA) has been advocated as an alternative to PTCA in such lesions. In this report, we describe a potential complication of DCA in right coronary ostial lesions.
A 20-yr-old male had compression of the thoracic aorta by a large malignant mediastinal germinoma. The symptoms and signs that simulated coarctation of the aorta included hypertension, markedly decreased femoral pulses, and a systolic murmur that radiated to the back. Following X-ray therapy, the femoral pulses were palpable and the blood pressure became(More)
