This work compares the results of 2 different techniques of anterior cruciate reconstruction performed by 2 surgeons with the same rehabilitation program and same criteria of results evaluation. Forty-five patients were operated on using semitendinous tendon autograft, (average followup, 8 years 4 months), and 30 patients using bone patellar tendon bone(More)
Java is a safe language. Its runtime environment provides strong safety guarantees that any Java application can rely on. Or so we think. We show that the runtime actually does not provide these guarantees---for a large fraction of today's Java code. Unbeknownst to many application developers, the Java runtime includes a "backdoor" that allows expert(More)
PURPOSE In this study, we evaluated the results of arthroscopic stabilization of the shoulder using knotless anchors and the lesions associated with anterior-inferior labrum avulsion. TYPE OF STUDY Retrospective clinical study. METHODS Twenty consecutive patients affected with anterior unidirectional post-traumatic shoulder instability were treated with(More)
When knowledgeable colleagues are not available, developers resort to offline and online resources, <i>e.g.</i>, tutorials, mailing lists, and Q&#38;A websites. These, however, need to be found, read, and understood, which takes its toll in terms of time and mental energy. A more immediate and accessible resource are video tutorials found on the web, which(More)
It is common knowledge that program comprehension takes up a substantial part of software development. This "urban legend" is based on work that dates back decades, which throws up the question whether the advances in software development tools, techniques, and methodologies that have emerged since then may invalidate or confirm the claim. We present an(More)
Stack Overflow is the de facto Question and Answer (Q&#38;A) website for developers, and it has been used in many approaches by software engineering researchers to mine useful data. However, the contents of a Stack Overflow discussion are inherently heterogeneous, mixing natural language, source code, stack traces and configuration files in XML or JSON(More)
Summarization is hailed as a promising approach to reduce the amount of information that must be taken in by the person who wants to understand development artifacts, such as pieces of code, bug reports, emails, etc. However, existing approaches treat artifacts as pure textual entities, disregarding the heterogeneous and partially structured nature of most(More)
This paper describes an approach (SPY) to recovering the specification of a software component from the observation of its run-time behavior. It focuses on components that behave as data abstractions. Components are assumed to be black boxes that do not allow any implementation inspection. The inferred description may help understand what the component does(More)
PURPOSE Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgery has seen significant progress since bioabsorbable interference screws have replaced synthetic metallic screws for ligament graft fixation within the femoral and tibial osseous tunnel. Our study compared the MR images of patients who underwent ACL reconstruction using bioabsorbable interference(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) the degradation and osteointegration features of a new type of bioabsorbable interference (BioRCI) screw composed of poly-L-lactic acid and hydroxyapatite (PLLA-HA) used for tibial graft fixation in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients(More)
