To assess the accuracy of cartilage thickness measurements in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we compared data obtained by cartilage thickness measurements in MRI with corresponding histological sections of 14 human proximal tibial articular surfaces. Each proximal tibial articular surface was cut into five medial and lateral slices and each of these(More)
OBJECT Growth factors such as bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) have been proven to promote spine fusion and to overcome the disadvantages of an autologous bone graft. The optimum method to deliver such growth factors remains a matter of discussion. The purpose of this study was to determine the safety and efficacy of a new poly(D,L-lactide) (PDLLA)(More)
MAGNEZIX® (Syntellix AG, Hanover, Germany) is a biodegradable magnesium-based alloy (MgYREZr) which is currently used to manufacture bioabsorbable compression screws. To date, there are very few studies reporting on a limited number of elective foot surgeries using this innovative implant. This case report describes the application of this screw for(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to examine the advantages of MRI-guided ankle stress examinations in the detection of chronic ankle instability. SUBJECTS AND METHODS An MRI-compatible stress device was developed and tested for MRI safety. Bilateral MRI stress examinations were performed on 50 volunteers with and without clinically evident(More)
The aim of this study was to develop a signal-inducing bone cement for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-guided cementoplasty of the spine. This MRI cement would allow precise and controlled injection of cement into pathologic lesions of the bone. We mixed conventional polymethylmethacrylate bone cement (PMMA; 5 ml methylmethacrylate and 12 g(More)
