In 8 patients the pain was either not relieved or made worse by the initial operation. These 8

over the radial head anteriorly and over the ulnar nerve in its groove. No definite sensory loss was present. A roentgenogram of the elbow ( Fig. 1) indicated an old malunited fracture of the humerus with an anterior subluxation and hypertrophy of the radial head. Fig. 1. Pre-operative roentgenogram. A diagnosis of tardy radial and ulnar nerve paralysis was made. Operation . On Jan. 29, 1954 a standard anterior transplantation of the ulnar nerve was carried out. The exploration of the radial nerve revealed the nerve to divide into posterior

opacity of the Pantopaque and the metallic substance. Operation . On Oct. 17, 1957 a total laminectomy of L2 and L3 was performed. There was minimal subluxation of L2 and L3. A mass was palpated anterior to the dura mater and cord which did not feel as firm as calcium. A left extradural exploration was performed, and approximately 4 cc. of material which had the appearance of pus exuded from the extradural space and from the intervertebral space. [Cultures were made of this and all were sterile.] As the space was further exposed, the character of the material

spine). In rotation of the head, most action occurs in the upper cervical segments. The expected concomitant motion of the discs and zygapophysial joints can be observed by voluntarily limiting rotation of the head while rotating the neck, the latter motion consisting of side-to-side bending and flexion and extension. MATERIAL In this study, 11 patients wore cervical collars of plastic, leather, or felt-stockinette. Two additional patients wore chin-occiput braces; 1 of these had had fusion of the lower 3 cervical segments for anterior subluxation of the 7th

As a final damnation of the otherwise sweet pea, they found a very high incidence of dissecting aneurysms of the thoracic aorta. It appears obvious that L. odoratus is meant to be smelled

canal by a step-like deformity. With this subluxation, the upper tip of the lower articular process projects into the foramen ( Fig. 4 ). Associated hyperplasia or ossification of the ligamentum flavum further compromises this important reserve space. Bulging of the degenerated annulus backwards and laterally displaces the nerve root against the unyielding uppermost pedicle. As a result of compression and chronic irritation, fibrotic changes and adhesions develop in and about the nerve. These alterations have been well documented by Hadley. 15 Persistent and

. Anterior dislocation or subluxation occurred in 10 of the 11 patients. Five of these (50 per cent) occurred at the C5–C6 level, 3 at C4–C5 and 2 at C6–C7. (1) Acute dislocations The roentgenogram demonstrated an anterior dislocation at the time of injury in 8 patients. The dislocation was classified as marked ( Fig. 2A ) in 3 (75 to 100 per cent), moderate in 3 others (25 to 50 per cent) and slight in 2 patients (10 to 20 per cent). Additional fractures of either spinous processes, facets or vertebral bodies were present in 6 of the 8 patients. Fig. 2
