21/150. Acute myelogenous leukaemia presenting with mid-foot pain after an inversion injury.

    The case is presented of a 5 year old boy who attended after an inversion injury. He had persistent pain despite treatment and was subsequently diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukaemia. It is well recognised that acute leukaemia commonly presents as non-traumatic limb pain. This case highlights the need to consider acute leukaemia in the differential diagnosis of any persisting bone or joint pain, even in the context of recent injury. ( info)

22/150. Nonoperative treatment of an interosseous ganglion cyst.

    ganglion cysts of the knee are being reported more frequently secondary to an increased rate of magnetic resonance imaging studies. Although knee pain is the impetus for imaging, ganglion cysts are often incidental findings. Nonoperative treatment is a successful therapeutic option. We report a patient with variable pain presentations over the course of her treatment. The pattern of complaints pointed to different primary etiologies about the knee, but all were common to an interosseous ganglion cyst. A stepwise assessment and expansion of the differential diagnosis allowed for appropriate utilization of modalities and limited morbidity with nonoperative therapy. ( info)

23/150. Split biceps femoris tendon reconstruction for proximal tibiofibular joint instability.

    Recurrent instability of the proximal tibiofibular joint is an infrequently diagnosed abnormality. We present a new technique for reconstructing the joint using a split biceps femoris tendon passed through a bone tunnel in both the proximal tibial metaphysis and fibular head. The case report is also presented. The procedure offers an anatomic reconstruction and firm stabilization. It allows normal motion of the proximal tibiofibular joint and preserves the normal mechanics of the ankle. This procedure is an excellent alternative to resection of the fibular head, transarticular arthrodesis, or pseudoarthrosis focus at the fibular head. ( info)

24/150. chiropractic care of a patient with vertebral subluxations and unsuccessful surgery of the cervical spine.

    OBJECTIVE: The chiropractic care of a patient with vertebral subluxations, neck pain, and cervical radiculopathy after a cervical diskectomy is described. CLINICAL FEATURES: A 55-year-old man had neck pain and left upper extremity radiculopathy after unsuccessful cervical spine surgery. INTERVENTION AND OUTCOME: Contact-specific, high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustments (i.e., Gonstead technique) were applied to sites of vertebral subluxations. rehabilitation exercises were also used as adjunct to care. The patient reported a decrease in neck pain and left arm pain after chiropractic intervention. The patient also demonstrated a marked increase in range of motion (ROM) of the left glenohumeral articulation. CONCLUSION: The chiropractic care of a patient with neck pain and left upper extremity radiculopathy after cervical diskectomy is presented. Marked resolution of the patient's symptoms was obtained concomitant with a reduction in subluxation findings at multiple levels despite the complicating history of an unsuccessful cervical spine surgery. This is the first report in the indexed literature of chiropractic care after an unsuccessful cervical spine surgery. ( info)

25/150. acupuncture granulomas.

    Silicone compounds have recently been a source of controversy with regard to their potential role in the genesis of collagen vascular diseases. Foreign body reactions to injectable silicone were noted early in its cosmetic use and led to subsequent abandonment of this procedure. Here we report the first documented case of silicone granulomas to occur after acupuncture. ( info)

26/150. Exact moment of a gastrocnemius muscle strain captured on video.

    A left gastrocnemius strain was sustained by an elite cricket batsman while he was taking off to run. The exact moment of injury, captured by a camera in the middle stump, appears to correspond to the sudden appearance of a deficit in the gastrocnemius muscle, seen through the player's trousers. The strain occurred when the entire body weight was on the left foot with the centre of mass well in front of the leg. The injury probably occurred close to the time when the gastrocnemius complex was moving from an eccentric to an isometric phase. ( info)

27/150. Isolated acute hip adductor brevis strain.

    Acute muscle strain occurs as a result of an eccentric contraction that exceeds the biomechanical strength of the musculotendinous junction of a single muscle within a synergistic group. To date, only the (hip) adductor longus was shown to sustain this type of injury. In this case report, I describe the first published example of an magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-documented acute hip adductor brevis strain. ( info)

28/150. Chronic subtalar instability due to insufficiency of the calcaneofibular ligament: a case report.

    Calcaneofibular ligament insufficiency in isolation is an uncommon cause of chronic instability of the subtalar joint. We report one case of chronic subtalar instability due to calcaneofibular ligament insufficiency after an ankle sprain. It was diagnosed with clinical findings and stress radiograph, and successfully treated with proximal advancement of the elongated calcaneofibular ligament. ( info)

29/150. Complex regional pain syndrome type I associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

    BACKGROUND: (CRPS I [formerly called reflex sympathetic dystrophy]) is a syndrome with pain and signs of autonomic dysfunction after trauma or immobilization; the pathophysiologic mechanisms of CRPS I, however, remain unknown. DESIGN: The authors present a case of CRPS I associated with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Along with the motor paresis due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, pain, swelling, and signs of autonomic disturbance occurred. CONCLUSIONS: This case supports the hypothesis that immobilization is one of the major contributing factors for CRPS I. ( info)

30/150. A new consideration in athletic injuries. The classical ballet dancer.

    The professional ballet dancer presents all of the problems of any vigorous athlete. The problems include osteochondral fractures, fatigue fractures, sprains, chronic ligamentous instability of the knee, meniscal tears, impingement syndrome, degenerative arthritis of multiple joints and low back pain. attention to minor problems with sound conservative therapy can avoid many major developments and lost hours. Observations included the extraordinary external rotation of at the hip without demonstrable alteration in the hip version angle and hypertrophy of the femur, tibia and particularly the second metatarsal (in female dancers). Careful evaluation of the range of motion of the extremities, serial roentgenographic examination, and systematic review of previous injuries, training programs and rehearsal techniques have been evaluated in a series of cases to provide the basis for advice to directors and teachers of the ballet.
