The rate of progression of aortic stenosis (AS) in adults is variable. To determine whether clinical or echocardiographic variables are associated with more rapid hemodynamic progression, we identified 91 AS patients (initial valve area < or = 2.0 cm2) with 2 technically adequate studies separated by > or = 6 months. From the first study, left ventricular(More)

The purpose of the present study was to compare the clinical and radiographic outcomes after hip resurfacing(More)
The condition of the gluteal sling was a significant factor in determining the pressure experienced by the sciatic nerve during acetabular exposure in total hip resurfacing via a posterior approach. The position of the knee did not play a significant role at this stage of the procedure. Average pressures were not elevated above a predefined injury level(More)
