An anatomical update on the morphologic variations of S1 and S2
Although percutaneous fixation with iliosacral screws has been shown to be a safe and reproducible method for sacroiliac dislocation and sacral fractures, it is a technically demanding technique, and one of its contraindications ...
Diagnostic accuracy of a new clinical test (The Thessaly test) for early detection of meniscal tears
Background: Clinical tests used for the detection of meniscal tears in the knee do not present acceptable diagnostic sensitivity and specificity values. Diagnostic accuracy is improved by arthroscopic evaluation or magnetic ...
I CAN! A graduate self-completion questionnaire for evaluating medical curriculum outcomes: How to use it, and preliminary findings on Greek medical education outcomes
Objective Although valid instruments are available for measuring the educational environment during the 6-year period of undergraduate medical study, there was no tool for measuring the end-product of the medical curriculum, ...
