We reviewed 74 partial medial meniscectomies in 57 patients with stable knees, to assess the long-term functional and radiological outcome. The International Knee Documentation Committee score and the residual laxity were assessed in both knees. At the time of surgery the mean age of the patients was 36 +/- 11 years and the mean follow-up was 12 +/- 1(More)
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained clinical arrhythmia and is a problem of growing proportions. Recent studies have increased interest in fast-unbinding Na(+) channel blockers like vernakalant (RSD1235) and ranolazine for AF therapy, but the mechanism of efficacy is poorly understood. To study how fast-unbinding I(Na) blockers affect AF,(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of this retrospective study was to analyze mid-term outcome after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) revision performed arthroscopically with a patellar tendon graft. MATERIAL AND METHOD The series included 32 revision arthroscopies for ligamentoplasties of the ACL performed after primary intraarticular plasty. Outcome was(More)
A retrospective study was performed on 122 patients with 124 lateral meniscal cysts. These were selected from a original pool of 8100 knee arthroscopies (1.5%). Eight of the patients were lost to followup, 11 patients had chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficiency or previous medial meniscectomy, therefore 105 of 124 cases were included in this study. A(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Ligamentoplasty for tears of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is generally thought to be unreliable after the age of 40 years. The purpose of this retrospective analysis was to assess the five-year outcome after ACL plasty in patients aged over 40 at the time of surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between 1990 and 1997, 41 patients aged(More)
Visual field defects may be congruous or not in lesions affecting the optic radiation. This fact, and the macular sparing found in some cases, can be explained if the optic radiation is envisaged as formed by three layers, the superficial corresponding to homolateral peripheral vision, the intermediate to contralateral peripheral vision, and the deepest to(More)
