The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence and severity of degenerative changes seen on lateral roentgenograms in 200 asymptomatic men and women in five age groups with an age range of 20-65 years and to determine the normal values of cervical lordosis and spinal canal sagittal diameters and their relationship to degenerative changes. It was(More)
The results of 146 patients with anterior cervical intervertebral disc removal and fusions are reviewed. The diagnosis was cervical spondylosis in 75%, disc protrusion in 16%, and spondylosis at one level with disc protrusions at another in 9%. There were 81 women and 65 men with an average age of 48 +/- 9 years. The average follow-up was 5 +/- 3.3 years.(More)
STUDY DESIGN This is a retrospective long-term clinical and roentgenographic review of 50 patients who underwent anterior discectomy and fusion for painful cervical disc disease. The patients were reviewed by the senior author. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the long-term effectiveness of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion and identify clinical and(More)
STUDY DESIGN The lateral roentgenographic findings in 159 initially asymptomatic persons were reviewed at a 10-year interval. A questionnaire was used at the time of the last roentgenogram to determine the incidence of pain. OBJECTIVES To identify the number of persons who experienced pain during that 10-year period, describe the roentgenographic changes,(More)
The gait of men with unilateral hip fusion is somewhat slow, asymmetrical, and arrhythmic as compared with that of normal men. Compensation for absent hip motion is accomplished by increased transverse and sagittal rotation of the pelvis, increased motion in the sound hip, and increased flexion of the knee throughout the stance phase on the fused side.(More)
We reviewed the pre- and postoperative lateral cervical roentgenograms in 90 patients who had anterior fusions and compared their findings with age and sex-matched people without neck problems. The average interval from surgery to review was 5 years. Preoperatively, all patients had a higher incidence of degenerative spondylosis at the levels to be fused(More)
In order to identify the functional advantages or disadvantages between the anterolateral and the posterior approaches to total hip arthroplasty, measurements of prosthetic position, hip-muscle strength, and hip joint mobility were made after Müller total hip arthroplasty without osteotomy in 52 patents operated through a posterior approach and 41 patients(More)
The indications for the subvastus approach in total knee arthroplasty are the same for a medial parapatellar approach in the appropriately selected patient. The subvastus approach does not violate the quadriceps mechanism, reduces the need for lateral retinacular release, preserves the patella blood supply, and, with our modifications, can be used in most(More)
