Conservative treatment of acute anterior cruciate ligament injuries was recommended to selected patients, including those with sedentary occupations, low athletic demands, or ages greater than 30 years. Patients with generalized hyperligamentous laxity were excluded. Fifty-five of 61 patients were available at an average followup of 46 months from the time(More)
The overall goal of this work was to determine an optimal surface-tracking marker set for tracking motion of the tibia during natural cadence walking. Eleven different marker sets were evaluated. The marker sets differed in the location they were attached to the shank, the method used to attach the marker sets to the segment and the physical characteristics(More)
An evaluation of forty-five athletes who had had an episode of transient neurapraxia of the cervical spinal cord revealed a consistent finding of developmental narrowing of the cervical spinal canal. The purpose of the present epidemiological study was to determine the relationship, if any, between a developmentally narrowed cervical canal and reversible(More)
This brief report details the previously unreported complication of dislocation of the posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty. Both patients had valgus deformities requiring extensive release of the contracted lateral soft tissues. The mechanism of dislocation was one of slight flexion and external rotation. The prosthetic tibial spine became locked(More)
This study was performed to evaluate the relationship of the humeral head to the scapula in the horizontal plane of motion and to describe in detail a method of obtaining and interpreting modified axillary roentgenograms. Twenty normal subjects and twelve patients who had anterior instability of the shoulder were evaluated with this technique. In the(More)
The results of the first sixty-nine consecutive patients who had had seventy arthroscopically assisted reconstructions of the anterior cruciate ligament with use of an autogenous patellar-ligament graft at our institution were reviewed retrospectively. Sixty-seven patients (sixty-eight knees) were available for evaluation after a minimum of two years. All(More)
An anatomic study was designed to test the hypothesis that the articular surface of the glenoid fossa and labrum produces a composite socket of significant depth. Measurements were obtained from 25 anatomic specimen shoulders. The glenoid articular surface and labrum combine to create a socket that is approximately 9 mm deep in the superoinferior (SI)(More)
The effect soft tissue movement of the shank had on knee joint moments during natural cadence walking was investigated in this study. This was examined by comparing knee moments determined from bone-anchored and surface mounted tracking targets. Six healthy adult subjects participated in this study. The largest difference (3 N m) occurred about the AP axis,(More)
This study examined physiological and histopathological changes in the cat produced by a new experimental fluid injury device. Spontaneously breathing (N = 14) and artificially ventilated (N = 45) cats were subjected to systemically varied magnitudes of fluid percussion brain injury. Within certain injury ranges, increasing magnitudes of fluid percussion(More)
This study was designed to measure objectively knee laxity in children. Physical examination and the KT 1000 arthrometer were used to test the knee laxity of 150 healthy, uninjured children between 6 and 18 years of age. Data from the knee examinations and the KT 1000 measurements were compared and statistically analyzed to determine the change in knee(More)
