The pivot shift test is a commonly used clinical examination by orthopedic surgeons to evaluate knee function following injury. However, the test can only be graded subjectively by the examiner. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop software for a computer tablet to quantify anterior translation of the lateral knee compartment during the pivot(More)
Measurable ('minimal') residual disease (MRD) before or after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) identifies adults with AML at risk of poor outcomes. Here, we studied whether peri-transplant MRD dynamics can refine risk assessment. We analyzed 279 adults receiving myeloablative allogeneic HCT in first or second remission who survived at least 35 days(More)
BACKGROUND No study has examined the possible factors associated with different characteristics of stem-like cells derived from anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) remnants. And the purpose of the study is to elucidate whether demographic factors are associated with healing potential of stem-like cells derived from the ACL remnants tissue. METHODS Thirty-six(More)

The purposes of this article are to discuss key factors for assessing joint function, to present some recent findings, and to address the future directions for evaluating the function of the anterior cruciate ligament-injured/reconstructed knees. Well-designed studies, using state-of-the art tools to assess knee kinematics under in vivo, dynamic,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the congruency of the articular cartilage surface of the knee between the recipient and donor site during autogenous osteochondral grafting using a three-dimensional (3D) laser scanning. METHODS Six cadaveric knees were included in this study. The 3D profiles of the articular surface were obtained by a 3D laser scanner (FastSCAN(®),(More)
