The present study evaluated, ex vivo, a modification method for stabilization of the tibial tuberosity advancement technique using a spacing cage inserted at the osteotomy site and a stainless steel shaft screw positioned in a craniocaudal direction from the tibial tuberosity.
If Tornwaldt's cyst was observed, its dimension in craniocaudal, anteroposterior and transverse diameter were measured and the volume was calculated by using the ellipsoid formula (l x b x h)/2.
Different methods include: exaggerated craniocaudal ("CC"), roll medial or lateral CC, and tangential views.
The tibial tuberosity was stabilized with a stainless steel shaft screw (4mm in diameter) inserted distally to the spacing cage and oriented in a craniocaudal direction (Figure 1).
In craniocaudal projection, compression is usually applied from top of the breast with the detector system under the caudal surface.
A postprocedure mammogram with mediolateral and craniocaudal views of the biopsied breast should be performed to document deployment and location of the tissue marker and to determine whether the lesion sampled correlates with mammography findings.
A seguir foi mensurado o sentido craniocaudal e mediolateral de cada diafise obtendo-se uma media do seu diametro, padronizando-se o seu comprimento para ser o dobro do diametro.
If an SMS component is present, this abscess may track into parapharyngeal space, where further spread can take place in the craniocaudal axis.
The steady introduction of CT scanners with ever-increasing numbers of detector rows has enabled greater craniocaudal coverage at increasingly faster scan times and better resolution.
The renal ultrasound (Figure 1) revealed a vascular solid mass in the anterior wall of the urinary bladder, slightly to the left of the midline, measuring 3.4 cm transverse by 2.8 cm anteroposterior by 3.9 cm craniocaudal. The abdomen and pelvis were otherwise normal (Figure 2).
The stenosis involved the mid-part of the cricoid cartilage and the 1st tracheal ring with the craniocaudal distance measuring at 8 mm.
(7, 20-27) A type II linear external fixator would have been a good option in case 2 and would have had the advantage of better fracture visibility on postoperative radiographs (craniocaudal projection).
