Medial calcaneal displacement osteotomy or lateral column lengthening fusion has been advocated to augment tendon transfer in planovalgus foot deformity associated with chronic posterior tibial tendon insufficiency. It is hypothesized that plantar fascia tightening occurs with these procedures, helping to restore a more normal longitudinal arch. To(More)
Fifteen patients with metastatic breast cancer previously treated with chemotherapy were treated with a regimen consisting of vincristine, Adriamycin, and mitomycin. Eleven patients (73%) responded with three complete and eight partial responses. The median duration of response was eight months. While all four nonresponders died within five months, the(More)
BACKGROUND The current study was performed to identify risk factors and risk groups for carcinoma detection in men undergoing repeat prostate biopsies. METHODS The medical records of all men who had a negative initial prostate biopsy and underwent at least one repeat biopsy between 1992 and 2003 were reviewed to extract age, race, family history of(More)
Metatarsus primus elevatus has been suggested as a primary causative factor in the pathogenesis of hallux rigidus. The purpose of this investigation was to define the role of elevation of the first ray in the pathogenesis of hallux rigidus by comparing patients with known hallux rigidus with a control population. We reviewed 264 lateral weightbearing(More)
A 67-year-old man with prostate cancer presented with acute polymyositis and vocal cord paralysis as a result of mediastinal lymphadenopathy. His clinical course was unusual, with the development of a malignant pleural effusion, supraclavicular adenopathy, and osteolytic bone lesions. Urologic symptoms developed only pre-terminally, and osteoblastic bone(More)
Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery (ALCAPA) is a rare congenital anomaly associated with very high mortality during infancy. We report a 35-year-old female patient with ALCAPA initially visualized by echocardiography. She visited outpatient department presenting with intermittent chest discomfort for 3 weeks.(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES There is little information about the relationship between the Doppler flow of the ophthalmic artery (OA) and carotid and coronary atherosclerosis. The aim of the investigation was to assess the clinical usefulness of the Doppler flow of the OA to estimate the severity of carotid and coronary atherosclerosis. SUBJECTS AND METHODS(More)

Intra-hisian atrioventricular (AV) block is not a common phenomenon, but it is important for the development of advanced or complete AV block. We observed a 77-year-old female patient with the 2:1 AV block due to an intra-hisian block. In this case we tried to detect the block site, but an alternating pattern of the AH conduction was noted on the(More)
