The speed of sound in the tibia (tibial SOS) was measured in elderly women to determine whether the tibial SOS declined with age, similarly to bone mineral density (BMD), as determined by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), and whether the tibial SOS in elderly hip fracture patients was lower than that in a control group. The subjects in this study(More)
MUNAP (MUlti-NAnoProgram machine) is a two-level microprogrammed multiprocessor computer designed and developed at a university as a research vehicle. This paper describes the experiences with the implementation of MUNAP. We start with a brief overview of the machine. We then describe the system organization both on hardware and support software. The(More)
Spinal cord infarction followed by minor trauma in pediatric patients is rare and causes serious paralysis. Fibrocartilaginous embolism (FCE) is a possible diagnosis and there have been no consecutive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) reports. Here, we report a case of an acute complete paraplegia with spinal cord infarction and longitudinal spinal cord(More)
This study investigated bone fragility by comparing fractures of the vertebral body of the spine in elderly women receiving total knee replacement (TKR) (group 1) due to severe osteoarthritis of the knee and those with femoral neck fractures (group 2) attributable to osteoporosis. Forty-two women each were selected retrospectively for group 1 and(More)
Reduction of cervical facet dislocation should be performed as soon as possible to depressurize neuron cells although some randomized control studies defined early reduction as over 24 h after trauma. The purpose of this study was to define the actual time limit for early reduction in patients with complete motor paralysis. Cervical spine dislocation(More)
