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)
BACKGROUND Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells are generated from mouse and human somatic cells by the forced expression of defined transcription factors. Although most somatic cells are capable of acquiring pluripotency with minimal gene transduction, the poor efficiency of cell reprogramming and the uneven quality of iPS cells are still important(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)
PURPOSE To compare the tunnel enlargement of double-bundle (DB) anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) with and without suturing of autologous ruptured tissue to hamstring graft in patients with subacute anterior cruciate ligament injury. METHODS Ten patients with subacute (≤3 months after injury) anterior cruciate ligament rupture were randomly(More)
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is making a hole called as bone tunnel to fix a graft to the femur and tibia. A volume change of this bone tunnel enlargement with time affects a knee motion. We have already developed three dimensional analysis method for knee july-row detector computed tomography (MDCT) image. However, the direction of the(More)
