Computed tomography of the carpal tunnel was performed in the hands of both patients and controls in a neutral position, in flexion and in extension. The median nerve was not compressed between the long flexors and the flexor retinaculum in either flexion or extension of the wrist. In flexion, the nerve usually moved dorsally, away from the flexor(More)
Occupational exposure limits (OELs) for irritant dusts have had no quantifiable bases. This study (1) charted chemosensory feel, denoted chemesthesis here, to dusts of calcium oxide (1 to 5 mg/m(3)), sodium tetraborate pentahydrate [sodium borate] (5 to 40 mg/m(3)), and calcium sulfate (10 to 40 mg/m(3)); (2) examined correlates of the chemesthetic(More)
An anatomic model was developed to test different types of intra-articular anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions. Four cadaver knees were tested in an identical fashion. In each knee 12 different positions were tested. The results indicate that over-the-top repair is not suitable for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction from a mechanical(More)
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models were developed to investigate the altered fluid dynamics of the native aorta in patients with a left ventricular assist device (LVAD). The objective of this study was to simulate the effect of LVAD aortic outflow conduit location on the 3-D flow in the native aorta over a range of boundary conditions. The fluid(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The goal of this study was to evaluate the effect of surgical anastomosis configuration of the aortic outflow conduit (AOC) from a continuous flow left ventricular assist device (LVAD) on the flow fields in the aorta using CFD simulations. The geometry of the surgical integration of the LVAD is an important factor in the flow pattern that(More)
The supporting structures on the medial side of the knee consist of a superficial fascial layer (I), a deep capsular layer (III) with the deep medial collateral ligament in it and in between the superficial collateral ligament (layer II). The attachment sites of the different ligaments and the functions of the various ligamentous structures are described(More)
We describe a new method, bodypainting, to enhance courses in living anatomy. This novel approach was fully integrated in a course that comprised gross anatomy, living anatomy, and physical examination of the major abdominal and thoracic organs. We designed a course in which the students familiarized themselves with the surface markings and subsequently(More)
Closure of large incisional hernias with the Components Separation Method (CSM) could be explained by medial-caudal rotation of the internal and transverse oblique muscles around their centres of origin. In eight human cadavers, the CSM was performed, and translation of the rectus abdominis muscle was measured. Mean unilateral translation of the rectus(More)
