Presently, tibiotalar fusion remains a valid treatment option in patients affected by end-stage arthritis of the ankle that is unresponsive to other treatments. Over the years, many different surgical techniques have been described to make this kind of surgery less invasive and invalidating. Consequently, the last two decades have seen arthroscopic ankle(More)
HYPOTHESIS The Constant-Murley score (CMS) is one of the most used scales for shoulder dysfunction. The aim of this study is to determine whether the reliability of the CMS can be improved by enhancing the standardization of the items. METHODS Two consecutive series of 55 patients with shoulder dysfunction were enrolled in a test-retest study and examined(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the quality of life (QoL) in patients affected by osteoarthritis (OA) secondary to congenital hip dysplasia (CHD) and treated by hip arthroplasty. We prospectively treated 40 patients admitted to our hospital between 2001 and 2006. Each patient was asked to answer to two questionnaires: WOMAC and MOS SF-36. Patients were(More)
HYPOTHESIS The external rotation lag sign (ERLS) is a test designed to assess the integrity of the supraspinatus (SSP) and infraspinatus tendons. This study intends to determine the electromyographic pattern of shoulder girdle muscles during a series of ERLS tasks conducted at full adduction and 20 degrees of elevation to figure out the better way to(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the correlation of PaCO2 and ETCO2 during operations for lumbar disk herniation in prone position: the influence of position and deliberate hypotension. DESIGN Prospective, to compare PaCO2, ETCO2, pH, SBE, Pa max, in a group of 10 patients undergoing elective intervention for lumbar disk herniation in prone position and in a(More)
Specimens of the Savi pine vole (Microtus savii) were collected from three localities in central (Pisa and Viterbo) and southern Italy (Rosarno, Calabria) and were karyotyped using G-, C-, DA/DAPI-, and AluI-banding. All karyotypes had 2n = 54 chromosomes and seemingly identical autosomal banding. The sex chromosomes of the southern Italian specimens, M.(More)
Peroneal tendoscopy is an innovative technique that allows visualization of the tendons from the myotendinous junction to the peroneal tubercle, together with adjacent anatomic structures such as the recently unveiled vincula. Through a minimally invasive approach, it is possible to diagnose and treat several disorders, such as common tenosynovitis,(More)
Background The aim of this study is to assess the changes in Quality of Life (QOL) in patients affected by hip osteoarthritis (OA) secondary to congenital hip dysplasia (CHD) after total hip replacement (THR). Materials and Methods We prospectively evaluated 40 patients affected by CHD undergoing THR, admitted to our hospital between 2000 and 2005. 31(More)
This paper presents two new strategies to provide gyroscopic stabilization for armatures launched by railgun launchers. The rotating motion of the projectile is obtained by means of an electromagnetic field or, alternatively, of an appropriately shaped bore. In the first case windings, coiled in the bore axis direction, generate a rotating magnetic field.(More)
