Compared to median nerve somatosensory evoked potentials (SEP), less is known about activity evoked by nerve stimulation of the lower limb. To understand the mechanisms and the physiology of sensor- and motor control it is useful to investigate the sensorimotor functions as revealed by a standardized functional status. Therefore, we investigated SEPs of the(More)
BACKGROUND The mobile bearing designs have not yet been shown to improve clinical outcome of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). In this prospective randomized study, we compared the short-term clinical results of a mobile bearing implant with those of the fixed bearing version of the same implant. METHODS We randomized 100 knees into two double-blind groups(More)
Functional diagnostics of the dorsal root are especially effective via nociceptive fibers on account of less intersegmental overlap compared to large-diameter fibers of the mechanoreceptive afferents. Laser-evoked potentials (LEP) are induced by short, painful heat stimuli. The aim of this work was to describe changes of the LEP in cases of dorsal root(More)
We conducted a cross-sectional study of 40 radiculopathy patients in comparison with norm data from healthy subjects using a new electrophysiological method. Early manifestations of dorsal root impairment escape objective diagnosis by conventional somatosensory-evoked potentials due to the overlapping innervation of the affected dermatome by thickly(More)
A case of lytic lesion of the pelvis in a 23-year-old woman is presented. A biopsy led to the diagnosis aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC). Due to the histologically very aggressive growth of the tumor, a low malignant osteosarcoma could not be excluded. In an initial operation the tumour, affecting the sacrum, the iliac crest and the lower lumbar spine was(More)
The Pressure Measurement Foil (PMF), of Prescale, developed by the Fuji company permits the determination of the contact surfaces and of the pressure pattern within the femoropatellar joint. We measured contact surfaces and pressure distribution between patella and femoral condyles at different degrees of knee joint flexion before and after a lateral(More)
