Patients with traumatic lesion of the anterior cruciate ligament often experience knee instability, which, recent studies suggest, is probably due to reduced knee proprioception. We studied knee proprioception and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) after stimulation of the common peroneal nerve at the knee above the articular branches subserving the(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to study knee proprioception and somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) to stimulation of the common peroneal nerve (CPN) in 7 patients with lesion of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) before and after ACL reconstruction. MATERIALS AND METHODS We recorded the spinal N14 and scalp P27 potentials in 5 patients, while in the remaining(More)
BACKGROUND Angiogenesis plays a role in the progression of osteosarcoma, as well as in other mesenchymal tumors and carcinomas, and it is most commonly assessed by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression or tumor CD31-positive microvessel density (MVD). Tumor VEGF expression is predictive of poor prognosis, and chemotherapy can affect the(More)
The number, position, structural and ultrastructural features of the flexor tendon pulley system in six human embryonic hands, aged from 6 to 12 weeks, were studied by light and electron microscope. The pulley system can be recognized from the ninth week; later, at 12 weeks, the structures are easily identified around the flexor tendon in positions closely(More)
We report the case of a parosteal osteosarcoma of the distal ulna, treated with wide resection without reconstruction. The patient developed lung metastasis and a mass in the interosseus membrane of the forearm proximally to the osteotomy. The lung mass was found to be a metastasis from parosteal osteosarcoma and the biopsy of the forearm mass revealed a(More)
