OBJECTIVE Two strategies for surgical management are used for infants with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), primary heart transplantation and the Norwood procedure. We sought to determine how these 2 surgical approaches influence neurodevelopmental outcomes at school age. METHODS A multicenter, cross-sectional study of neurodevelopmental outcomes… (More)
The purpose of this study was to compare cup position, jump distance, and rate of dislocations in 100 total hip arthroplasty (THA) cases performed with the direct anterior approach (DAA) and 100 cases performed with the posterior approach (PA). Abduction and anteversion angles were measured using Martell Hip Analysis software. The average cup anteversion in… (More)
Twenty-eight principal dancers and soloists from America's two most famous ballet companies were examined for anthropometric measurements, including flexibility, muscle strength, and joint range of motion. Both male and female dancers were flexible, but not hypermobile, and did not differ significantly from each other. Marked differences were found between… (More)
Cuboid subluxation is a common but poorly recognized condition. Its symptoms include lateral midfoot pain and an inability to "work through the foot." In addition, pressing on the plantar surface of the cuboid in a dorsal direction produces pain. The normal dorsal/plantar joint play is reduced or absent when compared to the uninjured side, and subtle… (More)
BACKGROUND Venous thromboembolic events, either deep venous thrombosis or pulmonary embolism, are important complications in patients undergoing knee or hip arthroplasty. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of a mobile compression device (ActiveCare+S.F.T.) with or without aspirin compared with current pharmacological protocols for… (More)

Posterior tibial tendon tears in dancers are uncommon. No case series of such injuries has been presented. The injury does however occur, and should be differentiated from the more common causes of medial hindfoot symptoms in dancers. The relevant anatomy, biomechanics, and differential diagnosis are presented followed by a summary of four cases.
Posterior ankle pain in dancers and equinus athletes is often caused by the extreme plantarflexion requirements of their activity. Differentiation between true posterior ankle pain and Achilles tendon pain is discussed. Signs and symptoms of posterior ankle pain are specific to the flexor hallicus tendon on the medial side or impingement when on the lateral… (More)
