A comparison of calcaneal
dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry and calcaneal
ultrasound for predicting the diagnosis of osteoporosis from hip and spine densitometry.
Contrary to our hypothesis, we found no significant relation between physical activity and BMD or calcaneal
quantitative ultrasound measures in this population when we controlled for age, height, weight, years since diagnosis of MS, and glucocorticoid use.
Although the hyperplastic anterior calcaneal
process, or the "anteater" sign, is a well-known sign for calcaneonavicular coalitions seen on lateral ankle radiographs (11) and sagittal MR images, we saw a far more common occurrence of the hyperplastic navicular, or "reverse anteater" sign, on sagittal imaging.
Wear KA, Armstrong DW III: Relationships among calcaneal
backscatter, attenuation, sound speed, hip bone mineral density, and age in normal adult women.
Carden DG: Rupture of the calcaneal
tendon: the early and late management.
Study conclusions showed a significant association between atrophy of the abductor digit minimi muscle, an MRI manifestation of Baxter's neuropathy, with age, plantar calcaneal
spur formation and plantar fasciitis.
Boonen S, Nijs J, Borghs H, Peeters H, Vanderschueren D, Luyten FR Identifying postmenopausal women with osteoporosis by calcaneal
ultrasound, metacarpal digital X-ray radiogrammetry and phalangeal radiographic absorptiometry: a comparative study.
This edition has been updated with new procedures, including minimally invasive calcaneal
fracture fixation and subcutaneous plating pilon fractions; more on total ankle arthroplasty to reflect recent advances and improved outcomes; and information on minimally invasive techniques.
The electrodes were applied with a center-to-center distance of 2 cm, lateral to the calcaneal
tendon, ~ 17 cm above the calcaneus and below the muscle fibres of the gastrocnemius.
Lead concentrations in tibial and calcaneal
bone in relation to the history of occupational lead exposure.
14) Achilles tendinopathy involving the calcaneal
insertion presents as posterior heel pain with swelling and tenderness over the tendon near its insertion.
The growth came from strong global sales of the Gamma3 Hip Fracture System and the SPS Calcaneal
Foot Plating System, as well as solid demand for the company's T2 Nailing System in the United States, Canada and the Pacific region.
