BACKGROUND Pre-existing wireless local area network (WLAN) infrastructures enable the implementation of a real-time location system (RTLS) in the clinical setting. RTLS enable clinics to capture and process patient position data and link it with clinical data. The improvements in workflow and treatment brought about by RTLS may improve patient satisfaction.(More)
Stress radiographs are useful in determining the amount of ligamentous laxity present following trauma. The results may be helpful in determining diagnosis, surgical indications, and the type and timing of rehabilitation. Some techniques for obtaining stress radiographs involve specific patient positioning or manually applied force; others require use of a(More)
PURPOSE Percutaneous screw fixation is an effective technique in addressing minimally displaced anterior column acetabular fractures. The aim of this study is to evaluate the ease of percutaneous screw insertion for acetabular anterior column fracture, as it pertains to anterograde versus retrograde insertion techniques. METHOD From 2009 to 2013, CT(More)
BACKGROUND Patient localization can improve workflow in outpatient settings, which might lead to lower costs. The existing wireless local area network (WLAN) architecture in many hospitals opens up the possibility of adopting real-time patient tracking systems for capturing and processing position data; once captured, these data can be linked with clinical(More)
We present two children with hypoplasia of the left trapezius muscle and a history of ipsilateral transient neonatal brachial plexus palsy without documented trapezius weakness. Magnetic resonance imaging in these patients with unilateral left hypoplasia of the trapezius revealed decreased muscles in the left side of the neck and left supraclavicular region(More)
A unique failure mechanism of a distal radius fracture fixed with volar plating: a case report. Abstract Various treatment options exist for distal radius fractures, and the complications associated with operative and nonop-erative management are well documented in the literature. While surgical management with the use of various buttress and locked plating(More)
