OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study is to understand how the different single and combined hindfoot arthrodeses affect the biomechanics of the hindfoot. DESIGN: The range of rotation of each hindfoot bone in in vitro specimens were measured and compared before and after prescribed arthrodeses. BACKGROUND: Single and combinations of single arthrodeses in the(More)
Passive motions at the subtalar joint, talonavicular joint and calcaneocuboid joint were measured in eight ankle specimens, using an ultrasonic motion analysis system. Arthrodeses of the three joints were performed in all feasible combinations and the resulting motion change at the unfused joints was determined. Motion at the subtalar joint was not(More)
Surgical procedures including the extent of systematic lymphadenectomy are still under discussion in the treatment of esophageal cancer. In the own patients' population 92 subtotal en bloc-esophagectomies with a standard two field lymphadenectomy were performed. A total of 1483 lymph nodes were resected in the thoracic and abdominal compartments with an(More)
