A scoring system for evaluating symptoms after ankle fractures is presented. It is tested against (1) a linear analogue scale; (2) the limitation in range of motion in loaded dorsal extension; (3) the presence of osteoarthritis; and (4) the presence of dislocations on radiographs. It correlates well with these four parameters, which are considered to(More)
The results of bi- and trimalleolar fractures treated with nonrigid internal fixation were analyzed in 134 patients. The fractures were of both pronation and supination type. The operative success was evaluated in terms of congruency as seen on the post-operative radiographs. The congruency was classified as either congruent, small, or grave displacement(More)
Polyglactin 910, a resorbable synthetic material, was used as a mesh-tube to bridge defects (7 to 9 mm in length) in a sectioned rabbit tibial nerve. After absorption of the mesh a new nerve sheath was formed which enclosed numerous minute fascicles of regenerating axons. The polyglactin tube influenced the direction taken by the regenerating axons and(More)
Defects in a sectioned tibial nerve were bridged by a new method using a polyglactin mesh-tube and compared with conventional nerve grafting in the rabbit. The capability of healing was evaluated by morphometrical observations and repeated EMG-recordings. Only minor differences between the two different techniques were observed and the possible advantage of(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate effects of prolonged exercise on fluid and electrolyte losses in horses competing in 50- and 100-mile endurance competitions, with emphasis on recovery. ANIMALS Changes in body weight (BW); PCV; serum osmolality; plasma total protein, lactate, aldosterone, and serum electrolyte concentrations; and exchangeable cation content were(More)
Two hundred and thirty-seven fractures of the ankle treated with non-rigid internal fixation were reviewed with regard to classification, congruency of joint surface, range of motion and the patients' subjective symptoms. The fractures were divided into either severe fractures consisting of two or more skeletal injuries or simple fractures consisting of(More)
Two cases of pronation-eversion fractures, grade four, are described which were sustained during sports activities. However, in both cases the medial structures of the joint were intact. The trauma mechanism is obscure but may be explained by considering the ankle joint and the subtalar joints as a torsion transmitter as suggested by Inman (1976). Es werden(More)
