At the present time, syndesmotic screw fixation is recommended when there is a tibiofibular diastasis, a Maisonneuve fracture, or syndesmotic instability after fixation of distal tibia-fibula fractures. The aim/purpose of this study was to demonstrate the optimal level of syndesmotic screw placement before creation of a Maisonneuve fracture. Legs of 17(More)
AIM We evaluated the long-term residual renal function after donor nephrectomy using 99mTc-mercaptoacetyltriglycin (MAG3)-clearance. DONORS, METHODS Altogether 49 kidney donors were examined using 99mTc-MAG3-clearance after nephrectomy for donation to a relative (m:f = 11:38; age 55+/-27 years). The donors were examined 16+/-8 years postoperatively(More)

Here we have measured the(More)
