In 1992 Conconi et al. (20) presented an indirect and noninvasive method for the determination of anaerobic threshold (AnT) in an incremental field test for runners. This noninvasive method for the determination of anaerobic threshold is dependent on the occurrence of a deflection of the heart rate performance curve (HRPC). The aim of our study was to(More)
METHODS Forty-five patients with a simple elbow dislocation were re-examined at an average time of 61 months after injury. All patients were treated by means of closed reduction. Only patients with minor associated injuries were included in the study. The Morrey score was used to evaluate pain, limitation of motion, instability, and daily activities. The(More)
UNLABELLED The percent of maximal heart rate (%HRmax) model is widely used to determine training intensities in healthy subjects and patients when prescribing training intensities in these groups of subjects. PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate the influence of the time course of the heart rate performance curve (HRPC) on the accuracy of(More)
OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to compare the capabilities of conventional radiography, CT, and MR imaging in revealing ligamentous and bony changes in patients after hyperflexion injuries. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Forty-nine patients with hyperflexion injuries of the foot were included in our study. Conventional radiography, weight-bearing radiography,(More)
In 1996, the AO/ASIF developed the proximal femoral nail (PFN) as an intramedullary device for the treatment of unstable per-, intra- and subtrochanteric femoral fractures. In a prospective study, we treated 55 patients having proximal femoral fractures with the PFN from 1997 to 2000. In 34 patients, we achieved what was close to anatomic reduction of the(More)
he anatomy of the mortise of the Lisfranc joint between the medial and lateral cuneiforms was studied in detail, with particular reference to features which may predispose to injury. In 33 consecutive patients with Lisfranc injuries we measured, from conventional radiographs, the medial depth of the mortise (A), the lateral depth (B) and the length of the(More)
Autogenous bone is the gold standard graft for sinus augmentation. The harvest of autogenous bone grafts from intraoral sites does often not provide sufficient bone volume and quality. A modified technique of harvesting a tibial cancellous graft is presented. With a micro-bone saw, a bony lid is prepared at the medial condyle of the tibia. The lid stays(More)
BACKGROUND The utilisation and consequences of standardised operative procedures may importantly differ between different healthcare systems. This is the first investigation comparing the treatment and outcome of femoral shaft fractures stabilised with an identical implant between trauma centres in 2 continents (Europe, EU and South Africa, SA).

INTRODUCTION A paradox seems to exist: exercising leads to clotting activation in conventional clotting tests, but exercising persons have a low risk of thrombosis. In this study we tried to evaluate the effect of exercise performance status on in vitro plasma thrombin generation, which represents an overall function test of hemostasis. MATERIALS AND(More)
