BACKGROUND Recently, anatomical anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with 2-bundle reconstruction has been proposed. Few previous publications have mentioned anatomical measurements of the insertions of these bundles. PURPOSE To determine the precise anatomical measurements of the femoral and tibial insertions for anteromedial and posterolateral(More)
Mutations in the STA gene at the Xq28 locus have been found in patients with X-linked Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy (EDMD). This gene encodes a hitherto unknown protein named 'emerin'. To elucidate the subcellular localization of emerin, we raised two antisera against synthetic peptide fragments predicted from emerin cDNA. Using both antisera, we found(More)
In vivo release of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) from a biodegradable gelatin hydrogel carrier was compared with the in vivo degradation of hydrogel. When gelatin hydrogels incorporating 125I-labeled bFGF were implanted into the back subcutis of mice, the bFGF radioactivity remaining decreased with time and the retention period was prolonged with a(More)
For posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction, two root, anterolateral and posteromedial bundles restruction are performed. However, little has been mentioned of anatomical measurements of the insertions to the bone of these bundles in previous publications. The aim of this study is to determine the precise anatomical measurements of the femoral and(More)
Nogo receptors (NgR1, -2, and -3) and their ligands, i.e., myelin-derived neurite outgrowth inhibitor (Nogo)-A, myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG), and oligodendrocyte myelin glycoprotein (OMgp), have been considered to play pivotal roles in controlling axonal regeneration and neuronal plasticity. We show here that NgR1-3 mRNAs were differentially(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate quantitatively the longitudinal temporal, spatial changes of the tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF) and interleukin-10 (IL-10) immunopositive cells during Wallerian degeneration and the following regeneration after crush injury in rat sciatic nerve using immunohistochemistry and enzyme linked immunosorbent assay(More)
We present a measurement of the W-boson mass using 200 pb{-1} of data collected in pp[over ] collisions at sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV by the CDF II detector at run II of the Fermilab Tevatron. With a sample of 63 964 W-->enu candidates and 51 128 W-->munu candidates, we measure M_{W}=80 413+/-34{stat}+/-34{syst}=80,413+/-48 MeV/c;{2}. This is the most precise single(More)
In an attempt to identify a cohort with a high risk of suffering a fracture of the contralateral hip (second hip fracture), we assessed patients who had suffered hip fracture. A total of 714 patients (130 men and 584 women) were prospectively followed to determine those who suffered a second hip fracture. Pathologic hip fractures and fractures that emerged(More)
BACKGROUND The Disability of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) questionnaire is a region-specific self-administered questionnaire that consists of a disability/symptom (DASH-DS) scale, and two optional modules, the work (DASH-W) and the sport/music (DASH-SM) modules. The DASH was cross-culturally adapted and developed by the Impairment Evaluation Committee,(More)
In regard to arthroscopic treatment of popliteal cysts, we explored the refuted pathology for popliteal cysts proposed by others. Here we introduce an arthroscopic technique using posterior portals to treat a popliteal cyst based on our observation that the opening of the cyst in the joint is a slit-like structure in the posterior wall of the capsule.
