The aims of this investigation were to evaluate the effect of an amino acid supplement on the glucose response to an oral glucose challenge (experiment 1) and to evaluate whether differences in blood glucose response were associated with increased skeletal muscle glucose uptake (experimental 2). Experiment 1 rats were gavaged with either glucose (CHO),(More)
To examine the role of both endurance exercise and nutrient supplementation on the activation of mRNA translation signaling pathways postexercise, rats were subjected to a 3-h swimming protocol. Immediately following exercise, the rats were provided with a solution containing either 23.7% wt/vol carbohydrates (CHO), 7.9% wt/vol protein (Pro), 31.6% wt/vol(More)
To examine the accuracy of intraoperative estimation of stem anteversion in total hip arthroplasty (THA), we compared the intraoperatively estimated stem anteversion (estimated prosthetic anteversion) to stem anteversion measured by postoperative computed tomography (true anteversion) in 73 hips in 73 patients. Estimated prosthetic anteversion was(More)
Dynamic hip kinematics during weight-bearing activities were analyzed for six healthy subjects. Continuous X-ray images of gait, chair-rising, squatting, and twisting were taken using a flat panel X-ray detector. Digitally reconstructed radiographic images were used for 3D-to-2D model-to-image registration technique. The root-mean-square errors associated(More)
BACKGROUND There is an interest in quantifying the hip kinematics of patients with end-stage hip disorders before total hip arthroplasty. The purpose of the present study was to obtain dynamic hip kinematics under four different conditions, including deep flexion and rotation, in patients with osteoarthritis of the hip. METHODS Continuous X-ray images(More)
This study was conducted to examine the risk factors for recurrent dislocation after total hip arthroplasty (THA) and test the hypothesis that late dislocations are associated with recurrence. A total of 1,250 hips in 1,017 patients were retrospectively reviewed. All operations were performed through the posterolateral approach with posterior soft tissue(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to report results at a minimum of 10 years for hydroxyapatite (HA) coating on the titanium arc-sprayed cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA) and to evaluate the impact of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) on implant longevity. METHODS A total of 131 consecutive primary THAs in 123 patients using an AMS acetabular cup(More)
Stem version is not always equivalent to femoral neck version (native version) in cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA). We therefore examined the discrepancy of version between the native femoral neck and stem using pre- and postoperative computed tomography (CT), the level of the femur where the canal version most closely fit the stem version, and the(More)
OBJECTIVES Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is often performed in the lateral decubitus (lateral) position. In this position, the pelvis may have various degrees of tilt leading to implant malposition. We sought to quantify the pelvic tilt in lateral position and further pelvic movement during surgery. METHODS In 95 cases with primary THA, three-dimensional(More)
PURPOSE Participation in specific activities requires complex ranges of knee movements and activity-dependent kinematics. The purpose of this study was to investigate dynamic knee kinematics during squat and golf swing using image-matching techniques. METHODS Five healthy males performed squats and golf swings under periodic X-ray images at 10 frames per(More)
