In a prospective clinical study, 59 patients with anteromedial osteoarthritis of the knee (61 knee joints) underwent minimally invasive medial Oxford unicompartmental arthroplasty phase 3. Clinical and radiographic examinations of 56 knees were carried out at five (4-7) years. American Knee Society (AKS) scores improved from mean 45.5 (20-80) points (knee(More)
The aim of the study was to determine whether the incidence of radiolucencies can be reduced using pulsed lavage before cementing the tibia in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). We prospectively studied a consecutive series of 112 cemented Oxford UKA in 100 patients in two centres. In group A (n = 56) pulsed lavage and in group B (n = 56)(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) secondary to dislocation and dysplasia is a common problem in patients with cerebral palsy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the results of total hip replacement (THR) in ambulatory patients with cerebral palsy. Eighteen total hip arthroplasties were performed in 16 ambulatory patients with cerebral palsy. The patient's mean age(More)
Cardiac glycosides inhibit the Na(+),K(+)-ATPase and are used for the treatment of symptomatic heart failure and atrial fibrillation. In human heart three isoforms of Na(+),K(+)-ATPase are expressed: alpha(1)beta(1), alpha(2)beta(1) and alpha(3)beta(1). It is unknown, if clinically used cardiac glycosides differ in isoform specific affinities, and if the(More)
In todays product management life-cycle data play a growing role. Fixed product data, sensor readings and external events form continuously growing data collections, the digital object memory. To create a surplus value, this data is exploited in applications, e.g. by asking queries to such memories (e.g. "get unexpected observations"). The necessary logic(More)
In this article we propose a generic framework for ontological intention recognition and action recommendation involving distributed and networked active digital object memories (ADOMe) for production factories and their components as well as individually manufactured products. For this purpose, a concrete and complex application scenario in the industrial(More)
In regions affected by seasonal and permanently frozen conditions soil moisture influences the thermal regime of the ground as well as its ice content, which is one of the main factors controlling the sensitivity of mountain permafrost to climate changes. In this study, several well established soil moisture monitoring techniques were combined with data(More)
