PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical results of medial retinaculum plasty (MRP) and medial patellofemoral ligament reconstruction (MPFLR) with concomitant lateral retinacular release with respect to imaging and functional results. METHODS Seventy patients with recurrent patellar instability were randomly divided into 2 groups(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical effect of medial patellar retinaculum plasty for children and adolescent patients with patellar dislocation. A prospective study was performed between October 2005 and December 2009. Sixty-one cases of children and adolescent patients with patellar dislocation were admitted to our study. Twenty-nine(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and functional results of surgical treatment for patellar subluxation. METHODS A retrospective study was undertaken between October 2004 and April 2009 of 78 cases of patellar subluxation: 40 cases with medial capsule reefing, of which 15 cases had the combination of lateral retinacular(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate reconstruction of the medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) using the double-bundle anatomical or single-bundle isometric procedure with respect to the patients’ clinical outcomes. In this retrospective study, we evaluated the clinical outcome of double-bundle anatomical versus single-bundle isometric reconstruction(More)
Oxytocin has been demonstrated to be involved in pain modulation. Acupuncture analgesia is a very useful clinical tool for pain relief, which has over 2500-year history in China. The present study investigated the role of oxytocin in acupuncture analgesia in the rat through oxytocin administration and measurement. Central administration of oxytocin(More)
Our previous study has proven that hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) played a role in the antinociception. The central bioactive substances involving in the PVN regulating antinociception were investigated in the rat. The results showed that electrical stimulation of the PVN increased the pain threshold, and L-glutamate sodium injection into the(More)
The study aimed to investigate the effect of oxytocin on antinociception in the rat. The pain threshold was elevated by oxytocin following intraventricular (icv) or intrathecal injection (ith), and reduced by anti-oxytocin serum (icv or ith). But the pain threshold was not altered by intravenous injection (iv) of oxytocin or anti-oxytocin serum. Pain(More)
Arginine vasopressin (AVP) has been proven to be involved in the process of pain regulation. This communication was designed to investigate the effect of AVP on acupuncture analgesia in the rat model. The results showed that intraventricular injection (icv) of AVP could enhance acupuncture analgesia in a dose-dependent manner, whereas icv of anti-AVP serum(More)
Our previous study has proven that hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) stimulation increases pain threshold and PVN cauterization decreases pain threshold. The studied neuropeptides in PVN were investigated to involve to pain modulation in the rat. The results showed that (1) intraventricular injection (icv) of anti-arginine vasopressin (AVP) serum(More)
Previous work has shown that arginine vasopressin (AVP) regulates antinociception through brain nuclei rather than the spinal cord and peripheral organs. The present study investigated the nociceptive effect of AVP in the nucleus raphe magnus (NRM) of the rat. Microinjection of AVP into the NRM increased pain threshold in a dose-dependent manner, while(More)
