In many cases knee osteoarthritis leads to total knee replacement surgery (TKR) even if the lateral compartment is not involved. More recently, a bicompartmental knee replacement system (BKR) (Journey Deuce, Smith & Nephew Inc., Memphis, TN, USA) has been developed that only replaces the medial tibiofemoral and the patellofemoral compartments, thus(More)
Aim. The purpose of the present study was to analyze the predictive and prognostic role of soluble (pro)renin receptor (sPRR) as a biomarker for clinicopathological outcome in patients with primary epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC). As part of the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) whose activity is known to increase in ovarian cancer patients, the relation of(More)
The purpose of the present study was to systematically investigate the upper body motor point (MP) positions of selected muscles and to create an atlas of the identified MPs. MPs were searched bilaterally in 15 male and 15 female subjects by scanning the skin with a special pen electrode at low stimulation frequency (3 Hz) and current amplitude (<10 mA).(More)
In 71 healthy subjects and in 38 diabetics the shortest F-wave latencies were evaluated for the n.medianus, n.ulnaris, n.tibialis and n.peronaeus. The motor nerve conduction velocities calculated hereby for the upper and lower extremities were compared with the corresponding distal motor conduction velocities measured in the conventional manner.
