The purpose of this study was to investigate the value of electromyography in patients with anterior disc displacement (ADD) of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Electromyography (EMG) during chewing movement was evaluated in 48 women with unilateral ADD of the TMJ (21 patients with ADD with reduction and 27 with ADD without reduction). As a control group,(More)
Multiple unit activities (MUA) in 307 brainstem sites were recorded by chronically implanted electrodes in cats, using a polygraph with 4 channel MUA recording units. During transition from waking to slow wave sleep, at 15 sites including the medial preoptic area (11), the diagonal band of Broca (2) and medial anterior hypothalamic area (2), consistently(More)
The depth, length, and depth:length ratio of the mandibular fossa, and the angles of the posterior slope of the articular eminence were measured for 91 temporomandibular joints (TMJ) with anterior disk displacement (ADD) in 79 female patients with TMJ dysfunction. As a control, 48 joints in 24 females without TMJ dysfunction were similarly measured. One of(More)
BACKGROUND Uncemented fixation of components in joint arthroplasty is achieved primarily through de novo bone formation at the bone-implant interface and establishment of a biological and mechanical interlock. In order to enhance bone-implant integration osteoconductive coatings and the methods of application thereof are continuously being developed and(More)
OBJECTIVE PATIENTs with secondary hyperparathyroidism caused by chronic kidney disease (CKD) develop secondary osteoporosis, which increases fracture risk. We report a case of insufficiency fractures complicated by secondary osteoporosis caused by chronic renal failure and gastrectomy. PATIENT A 78-year-old man with a medical history of nephrotic syndrome(More)
