Thirty-three cases of acute septic arthritis of the hip in children were treated at our hospital from 1986 to 1997. The average follow-up period was 6 years (range 2–¶11 years). In 17 cases the right hip was affected, and in 16 the left hip. The average duration of symptoms was 5 days (range 1–14 days). Microorganisms were isolated from the blood, joint(More)
We wanted to investigate the role of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in the knee’s posterolateral stability and the magnitude of the coupled posterolateral instability with the knee examined at 90° of flexion. The coupled posterolateral instability of the knee was studied by selective ligament cutting in cadaver knees set at 90°. The coupled(More)
This work explores the relationships of muscle strength and areal bone mineral density (aBMD) in ambulatory children with cerebral palsy (CP). The knee extensor strength, but not motor function, was related to aBMD. Thus, muscle strength, especially antigravity muscle strength, was more associated with aBMD in these children than motor function. Muscle(More)
Intraspinal tumours of cutaneous origin associated with various spinal dysraphisms have been well documented in the literature. However, the metachronous development of intra- and extra-medullary tumours in conjunction with dorsal meningocele is rare. The authors report a patient with a thoracic dorsal meningocele and congenital intradural extramedullary(More)
Hibiscus protocatechuic acid (PCA), a phenolic compound found in the dried flowers of Hibiscus sabdariffa L. (Malvaceae), was demonstrated to have an antioxidant effect in vitro and in vivo, and an antitumor property in our previous study. In the present study, we used lipopolysaccharide (LPS, an endotoxin) to induce rat liver inducible nitric oxide(More)
The treatment of laryngeal and hypopharyngel cancer nowadays is not limited by surgical resection. There are many interdisciplinary approaches which we can offer these patients in our clinics. These include radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biologicals and surgery. The combination of radiotherapy, chemotherapy, biologicals and surgery techniques more and more(More)
A long-lasting antihyperalgesic effect has been demonstrated for intrathecal (IT) clonidine, an alpha2-adrenergic agonist. In the present study, the mechanism and antihyperalgesic effects of IT clonidine were examined post-treatment in a rat model of Complete Freund's Adjuvant (CFA)-induced inflammatory hyperalgesia. Using a chronic model of spinal cord(More)
The 12-week home-based virtual cycling training (hVCT) improved lower limb muscle strength and areal bone mineral density (aBMD) than the control program in children with cerebral palsy (CP). A muscle strengthening program, rather than general physical activity, is more specific in enhancing aBMD for these children. A novel hVCT is an effective and(More)
Three of 12 nonrheumatoid patients with bicipital radial bursitis had recurrent and recalcitrant symptoms and underwent operative treatment. Preoperative computed tomogram showed an anterior distended synovial cyst at the level of the radial tubercle. Magnetic resonance imaging provided a superb demonstration of a bicipital radial bursa which communicated(More)
