PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to document the incidence of lesions of the rotator interval, illustrate the arthroscopic appearance of subtle differences in these lesions, and discuss how various lesions may affect biceps tendon stability in the bicipital groove. TYPE OF STUDY A Data Registry has been used in my office since 1995 (Microsoft Office(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM A gastric conduit is usually used to reconstruct the foregut after esophagectomy for cancer. The gastric emptying may be impaired after this operation, so some esophageal surgeons routinely add a pyloric drainage procedure (pyloroplasty or pyloromyotomy). We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to determine the(More)
Tibial plateau fractures can occur concomitant with injuries to the collateral and cruciate ligaments, menisci, and surrounding nerves and arteries. The purpose of this article is to record the frequency of these soft tissue injuries with tibial plateau fractures. Patients with plateau fractures were entered into a prospective protocol consisting of(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to determine whether contrast-enhanced MR cholangiography using IV mangafodipir trisodium can accurately detect the presence and location of bile duct leaks in patients who have undergone cholecystectomy. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Our study group included 11 patients with suspected bile duct leaks after cholecystectomy.(More)
Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EG) is a rare inflammatory disease of unknown etiology, characterized by focal or diffuse eosinophilic infiltration of the gastrointestinal tract. Although little over 250 cases of EG have been reported in the literature, EG is probably more common than reports in the literature would indicate. A retrospective review of 25(More)
A systematic evaluation of the glenohumeral joint should be routinely performed with all shoulder arthroscopy and include all anatomic areas. However, to date, less attention has been given to the insertion of the subscapularis tendon, superior glenohumeral ligament (SGHL), and medial head of the coracohumeral ligament (MCHL). This article outlines(More)
PURPOSE The goal of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of the arthroscopic repair of isolated subscapularis tears. Additionally, this study explores details of the clinical diagnosis, magnetic resonance arthrography findings, and surgical repair techniques. TYPE OF STUDY A prospective cohort. METHODS The preoperative and postoperative status of(More)
MR features of 153 proved primary liver tumors (95 malignant, 58 benign) in 55 patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (21), cholangiocarcinoma (seven), carcinosarcoma (one), hepatoblastoma (one), hemangioma (16), hepatic adenoma (four), focal nodular hyperplasia (three), leiomyoma (one), and hemangioendothelioma (one) were studied retrospectively to(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Esophagogastric anastomotic leaks remain a significant problem after esophagectomy for esophageal cancer. Many investigators have reported that leaks are more frequent after cervical, as opposed to thoracic, esophagogastric anastomoses. We conducted a retrospective review to assess the effect of anastomotic location (thoracic or(More)
Now that picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) has matured, our challenge is to make the images available to the referring physician and, in a teaching institution, to make these images available for conferences and rounding. One solution is the distribution of the images using web-based technology. We investigated a web-based add-on to our(More)
