From 1975 to 1986, 102 high tibial osteotomies for varus gonarthrosis were performed in 99 patients. Fifty-eight patients (60 knees) were reviewed at an average followup of 15 years (range, 10-21 years); of the remaining 41 patients, seven had a knee replacement, 18 had died, and 16 were lost to followup. The results, assessed according to the scoring(More)
Fifty-nine comminuted articular fractures of the distal radius which had received conservative treatment were reviewed after an average of 3 1/2 years. The results--excellent in 15 patients, good in 30, fair in 12, and poor in 2--were closely linked to the quality of the articular reduction. In patients with a residual malalignment greater than 2 mm, a(More)
The long-term results of the conservative treatment of wrist fractures were observed in a follow-up study of 297 cases over a period of one and one-half years to six years. The evaluation of the results was based on clinical parameters, both subjective and objective, as well as radiological features. The results were: excellent in 38% of cases, good in 49%,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate by means of transcranial Doppler (TCD) ultrasonography how many spontaneous reperfusions of the middle cerebral artery (MCA) occurred during the first week after onset of acute ischemic stroke in the carotid territory. METHODS TCD examination, computed tomographic scan, and arterial digital(More)
The temporal relationship between left ventricular (LV) shape changes and the development of LV dysfunction, dilation, and sympathoadrenergic hyperactivity was examined in 10 dogs with chronic heart failure produced by multiple sequential intracoronary microembolizations. LV shape was quantitated from serial ventriculograms based on the ratio of the major(More)
One hundred fractures of the distal radius with dorsal displacement were treated by closed reduction and a plaster cast. The mean age of the patients was 55 years. Radiographs were taken after 1, 2 and 5 weeks to evaluate the frequency of early and late displacement. Dorsal angulation occurred in 71 patients, shortening of the radius in 47 and flattening of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The capability of transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) to detect a patent foramen ovale (PFO) has been established. However, which provocative maneuver and what timing of contrast injection are most effective to induce a right-to-left shunt has not yet been determined. METHODS We selected 38 cerebrovascular patients (21 men, 17(More)
The frequency of angiographically defined asymptomatic CAD in patients with carotid disease is 40%. Although the prognosis of patients with asymptomatic 1-vessel or 2-vessel CAD is good (annual cardiac mortality rate less than 2%), the prognosis of asymptomatic 3-vessel disease or left main CAD is substantially less favorable (annual cardiac mortality(More)
Recovery of sensitivity following repair of 54 digital nerves was evaluated after one to seven years. Normal two-point discrimination has been regained in only seven cases (13%), two-point discrimination between 6 and 10 mm in 20 (37%), between 11 and 15 mm in 13 (24%) and protective sensation in 14 (26%). A close correlation between age and recovery of(More)
OBJECTIVES Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a clinical and radiological entity characterized by focal neurological signs, headache, confusion, and seizure, associated with transitory lesions in the posterior areas of the brain detectable with neuroimaging. Among children, one of the most common causes of PRES is cancer. MATERIALS AND(More)
