An Anteroposterior Axis of the Tibia for Total Knee Arthroplasty
The objective of the current study was to identify a new extraarticular anatomic landmark indicating the anteroposterior orientation of the tibia using computed tomography. In 39 volunteers (20Expand

Schmorl's nodes on magnetic resonance imaging. Their incidence and clinical relevance.
Schmorl's nodes were observed in 76 (19%) of 400 patients with lumbar symptoms, and in 10 (9.4%) of 106 control patients. In the lumbar group, the highest incidence was 57%, in the second decade ofExpand

Cyclic tensile stretch loaded on bovine chondrocytes causes depolymerization of hyaluronan: involvement of reactive oxygen species.
OBJECTIVE We have previously demonstrated that reactive oxygen species (ROS) are involved in cartilage degradation. Decreased size of hyaluronan (HA), the major macromolecule in synovial fluid, toExpand
