Radiographic assessment of the patellofemoral joint (PFJ) is problematic because conventional views are cumbersome, difficult to standardize, and not reliable for displaying this joint with flexion of the knee less than about 30 degrees. We used computed tomography (CT) to obtain conveniently a direct transaxial view of the PFJ in ten normal human(More)
Conventional radiographic assessment of the patellofemoral joint (PFJ) is often unsatisfactory for a variety of technical and theoretical reasons. Using a simple device designed to allow easy and reproducible control of knee flexion, we used computed tomography (CT) to evaluate the PFJ in 10 normal volunteers and five patients with a history suggestive of(More)
In this study we compared the influence that the order of the performance of different velocity exercise progressions has on average muscle power and total work production during a velocity spectrum isokinetic training session. Twenty-two college students were assigned randomly to four exercise trials, each containing an isokinetic exercise training session(More)
We studied the results in forty-seven knees in thirty-seven patients - ten male and twenty-seven female - who had recurrent dislocation of the patella and were treated by a modified Roux-Goldthwait procedure (lateral retinacular release, medial transfer of the lateral patellar tendon without advancement, plication of the medial retinaculum, and advancement(More)
Acute changes in plasma calcium and45Ca were studied in young adult male thyroparathyroidectomized (TPTX) rats injected with moderate doses of parathyroid hormone (PTH). For plasma calcium changes, comparison was made between rats fasted or fed prior to PTH injection. For plasma45Ca changes, the effect of the time of administration of the radionuclide was(More)
A system has been especially designed and fabricated for use with an arthroscope and other instruments so that an open passage is maintained through the skin, retinaculum, and joint capsule to allow the insertion and withdrawal of instruments at will. This system is designed to minimize loss of irrigating fluid from the joint during use, including(More)
