OBJECTIVE Nondisplaced hip fractures may be radiographically occult and require magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or bone scintigraphy for diagnosis. Both examinations are expensive and are not readily available in many hospitals. Our objective was to evaluate sonography as a screening tool for occult hip fractures in posttraumatic painful hips in elderly(More)
BACKGROUND Failed total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) often results in significant bone loss and requires salvage arthrodesis. This study quantified the bone loss following failed TAA and reports the outcome of seven arthrodesis reconstructions using the Ilizarov method. METHODS A retrospective review of ankle fusions was performed for failed TAA to collect(More)
