Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures lead to a proprioceptive deficit and therefore joint position sense. This study examined whether active motion is better suited than passive motion to address this deficit. Sixty patients with ACL rupture were prospectively randomised into two groups [continuous active motion (CAM)/continuous passive motion (CPM)].(More)
This experimental study was designed to compare two different fluoroscopy-based stereotactic surgical techniques for transcutaneous cervical pedicle screw (CPS) placement in the subaxial human cervical spine: (1) a custom-made aiming frame (AF) in combination with conventional fluoroscopy versus (2) a targeting device in combination with a computer-assisted(More)
BACKGROUND The cold pressor task (CPT) was originally developed as a clinically indicative cardiovascular test, and quantifies vascular response and pulse excitability when a subject's hand is immersed into ice water. Since the test procedure results in a gradually increasing cold pain, the CPT has been widely used as a nociceptive stimulus in experimental(More)

About 4 observations of benign tumours of the spine of the adolescent, we have studied the surgical aspect of the treatment of these lesion. The choice of the surgical approach is fundamental in view of the necessity of a complete exeresis, which implies techniques of spinal reconstruction and stabilization. Those problems are illustrated by: 2 cases of(More)
OBJECTIVE Navigated computer-assisted total knee arthroplasty (TKA) shows inconclusive mid- to long-term outcome results and is limited by increased costs, surgery-time and an additional learning curve. We introduced a treatment algorithm preserving computer-assisted TKA for patients with adipositas-per-magna, posttraumatic leg-deformities, osteosynthetic(More)
