Fifty-four hips converted to low friction arthroplasty between 1965 and 1975 have been reviewed one to eleven years after operation. In many cases malposition had led to degenerative changes in the opposite hip, the lumbar spine or the knee, often with severe loss of function due to pain. It was found that total replacement could give useful relief of pain(More)
A new ambulatory monitoring system was evaluated for long-term measurements of gastric acidity. A close correlation was observed between values indicated by the pH electrode of the system and the pH of simultaneously aspirated gastric juice, suggesting that the electrode signaled the pH of the gastric fluid content. When the pH electrode was passed via an(More)
The dislocation rate after the Charnley arthroplasty with the 22 mm diameter femoral head was 0.8% in 3,820 arthroplasties performed before 1971. Over this era the annual rate ranged from 0.5% to 1.4% without any apparent explanation. Following the routine use of a low position for the socket in the acetabulum and the Long Posterior Wall design of socket,(More)
Subarachnoid lumbar puncture is used commonly in the dog for cerebrospinal fluid collection and/or myelography. Here in we describe the percutaneous ultrasound anatomy of the lumbar region in the dog and a technique for ultrasound-guided lumbar puncture. Ultrasound images obtained ex vivo and in vivo were compared with anatomic sections and used to identify(More)
The effect of pirenzepine on 24 hour intragastric acidity was studied in 10 healthy volunteers using ambulatory 24 hour intragastric pH-monitoring in a double blind crossover study. Tests were performed on the seventh day of ingestion of either placebo, 75 mg pirenzepine or 150 mg pirenzepine per day. The drugs were given at two doses at 8.30 am and 8.30(More)
Ambulatory intragastric pH-metry is a suitable method of assessing gastric acidity under conditions of normal daily life. A detailed profile of intragastric acidity is given which is a reproducible individual characteristic. There is a circadian rhythm of gastric acidity in which pH rises during the night and after meals. pH-metry was used to determine the(More)
The standard technique for placing a needle into the canine lumbar subarachnoid space is primarily based on palpation of anatomic landmarks and use of probing movements of the needle, however, this technique can be challenging for novice operators. The aim of the current observational, prospective, ex vivo, feasibility study was to compare ultrasound-guided(More)
Ultrasonography of the cisterna chyli has been used in humans to diagnose increased lymphatic flow or lymph flow obstruction and to guide percutaneous embolization of the thoracic duct via the cisterna chyli. The aim of this study was to describe the ultrasonographic characteristics of the dorsal portion of cisterna chyli in dogs and cats with chylous(More)
An accurate method for guiding injections into the canine hip would facilitate diagnostic localization of lameness and targeted treatments. Ultrasound-guided hip injections are commonly used in humans and large animals. Aims of this prospective study were to describe ultrasound (US) anatomy of the adult canine hip and determine the feasibility and accuracy(More)
