Considerable research has been focused on the use of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for the repair of non-unions and bone defects. To date, the question of whether transplanted MSCs survive and engraft within newly formed tissue remains unresolved. The development of an easy and reliable method that would allow cell fate monitoring in… (More)
UNLABELLED THA in patients younger than 30 years old presents challenges: the initial technical challenge relates to the initial disease that often causes deformities making reconstruction difficult, while the long-term challenge is wear and subsequent osteolysis and component loosening. Ceramic-on-ceramic prostheses may represent a valuable option to… (More)
UNLABELLED Osteonecrosis after bone marrow transplantation is usually severe. Most patients develop acute and chronic graft-versus-host disease requiring a high dose of steroids for a long period of time. Generally ineffective nonoperative treatment in the past has resulted in treatment primarily with total hip arthroplasty (THA). We asked whether THA (1)… (More)
Alumina on the alumina sliding system in a total hip replacement is recognized as a breakthrough in orthopaedic surgery. Advantages and problems with this material are explained and discussed in the light of 36 years of clinical application. Laboratory data as well as clinical ones are summarized.
We describe a lateral approach to the distal humerus based on initial location of the superficial branches of the radial nerve, the inferior lateral cutaneous nerve of the arm and the posterior cutaneous nerve of the forearm. In 18 upper limbs the superficial branches of the radial nerve were located in the subcutaneous tissue between the triceps and… (More)
