- Assessment of peritrochanteric high T2 signal depending on the age and gender of the patients. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Radiol 2010; 75(1):64-6EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Bilateral peritrochanteric high T2 signal may be a part of the degeneration process and we suggest that it may not be necessarily reported if the clinical findings do not support greater trochanteric pain syndrome.
- MR imaging features of foot involvement in patients with psoriasis. [Journal Article]
- Eur J Radiol 2008; 67(3):521-5EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Our data showed that the incidence of foot involvement was very high in asymptomatic patients with psoriasis on MR imaging. Further MR studies are needed to confirm these data. We conclude that MR imaging may be of importance especially in early diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory changes in the foot.
- [Limits of palmar locking-plate osteosynthesis of unstable distal radius fractures]. [Journal Article]
- Handchir Mikrochir Plast Chir 2007; 39(1):34-41HM
- CONCLUSIONS: Favourable indications for palmar locking plate osteosynthesis are A2, A3, C1 and C2 fractures with big distal fracture fragments. In these cases, additional bone grafting is not needed. In very distal fractures, multidirectional plate-systems are advantageous. Multifragmental C3 fractures show a high complication rate. Additional bone grafting for the metaphyseal defect should be considered.

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome is commonly due to gluteus minimus or medius injury rather than trochanteric bursitis. Gluteal tendinopathy most frequently occurs in late-middle aged females. In this pictorial review the pertinent MRI and US anatomy of the gluteal tendon insertions on the greater trochanter and the adjacent bursae are reviewed. The direct (peritendinitis, tendinosis, partial and complete tear) and indirect (bursal fluid, bony changes and fatty atrophy) MRI signs of gluteal tendon injury are illustrated. The key sonographic findings of gluteal tendinopathy are also discussed.
- [Extended field-of-view sonography in Achilles tendon disease: a comparison with MR imaging]. [Journal Article]
- Rofo 2004; 176(5):704-8ROFO
- CONCLUSIONS: The combination of EFOVS and grayscale sonography has the potential to challenge MRI as the preferred imaging method in diagnosing symptomatic Achilles tendon disease, especially with respect to saving time and cost and the absence of any contraindications.

Chronic achillodynia are mostly due to ether an injury of the tendon itself (tendinosis) or to an inflammatory process occurring inside the surrounding tissues (bursitis or peritendinitis); these lesions are often seen simultaneously. The Achilles tendon plays an important role during gate (mainly during the propulsion phase), which explains its high incidence in runners, particularly those who are used to train and compete on steep slopes. The diagnosis of the condition is essentially based on medical history and examination: search for trigger factors and events, precise location of the complaints; management includes treatment of the cause, not only the consequences (pain, tissue injuries).
- MRI features of intersection syndrome of the forearm. [Journal Article]
- AJR Am J Roentgenol 2003; 181(5):1245-9AA
- CONCLUSIONS: Intersection syndrome is an overuse disorder of the dorsal distal forearm, presenting with particular symptoms and signs that may be clinically misdiagnosed. MRI can perform an important role in establishing the diagnosis. Peritendinous edema (peritendinitis) around the first and second extensor compartment tendons, extending proximally from the crossover point, is the most characteristic finding that should suggest a diagnosis of intersection syndrome. Chronic cases may be subtle and not show substantial MRI findings likely reflecting the development of a stenosing tenosynovitis.

Seventy-six patients with Achilles tendinopathies (n=86) operated between 1980 and 1995 were retrospectively evaluated at an average follow-up of 13 (5-21) years. Total or gross partial ruptures were excluded. Patients' average age at surgery was 38 (18-58) years. The majority of patients were active in competitive or recreational sports. Tendinopathies were classified in peritendinitis, tendinosis, insertional tendinopathies, and mixed forms. The surgical technique depended entirely on the pathology encountered. For 32 cases of peritendinitis, results were excellent in 26, good in four, and poor in two. For eight cases of tendinosis, results were excellent in four and good in four. For 34 cases of insertional tendinopathy, results were excellent in 22, good in four, fair in four, and poor in four. For 12 cases of mixed tendinopathies, results were excellent in ten and good in two. Forty-nine patients (52 cases) were able to return to sport at the desired level.

The authors studied posterior tibialis tendons in 31 subjects with posterior tibialis tendon pain to compare clinical findings with those of magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound images. All subjects received clinical, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging examinations using T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and enhanced magnetic resonance imaging, and high resolution ultrasound using power Doppler. Forty-four tendons in 25 women and six men with a mean age 43.3 years (range, 20-73 years) were studied. Magnetic resonance imaging tendon and peritendon enhancement are associated statistically with increasing pain intensity on resistance to testing. Ultrasound tendon and peritendon flow were associated with increasing pain intensity on resistance to testing. There is no statistically significant association between magnetic resonance imaging inhomogeneity and pain intensity on resistance to testing. Clinical and ultrasound examinations positively identify peritendinitis and tendonitis but not inhomogeneity (partial tear) of the posterior tibialis tendon. The magnetic resonance imaging is a more sensitive test for posterior tibialis tendon tear than either clinical or ultrasound evaluation.
