Fifty patients who had patellar subluxation and thirty control subjects were examined using axial roentgenograms of the patellofemoral joint that were made with the knee in 30 and 45 degrees of flexion, as well as computed tomography scans that were made with the knee in full extension. The amount of lateral patellar tilt was quantitatively assessed using(More)
To investigate excitability of spinal neural function during stretching excises in patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD), H-reflex was analyzed before, during and after 1 min. continued stretching of the affected arm. 10 hemiparesis patients with hypertonus and hyperreflex, mean age of 53.2 years were tested. H-reflex was recorded from the abductor(More)
EuroSCORE (European System for Cardiac Operative Risk Evaluation) used for calculating the risk of the postoperative mortality rate for patients undergoing open-heart surgery may be able to predict postoperative complications as well. Consecutive cases of isolated on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) (n=1552) performed between 1991 and 2006 at our(More)
BACKGROUND To improve the longterm outcome after CABG, several strategies have been used using arterial conduits. Our 20 years experience with the right gastroepiploic artery (GEA) graft was evaluated. METHODS AND RESULTS In 1352 patients having CABG with the GEA graft, (1092 men, mean 63 years, 99% multivessel disease, and mean EF 0.51), internal(More)
To investigate the effect of continued stretching of affected arms in patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD), F-wave was tested from the abductor pollicis brevis (APB) during relaxation (trial 1) and 3 different continued stretches: stretched position with shoulder abduction (trial 2), stretched position with shoulder abduction and elbow extension(More)
To minimize sternal ischemia, skeletonized internal mammary artery (IMA) harvesting has been performed in the last few years. The benefits of skeletonization in high risk patients, such as diabetic patients undergoing bilateral IMA grafting, are unknown. A total of 99 patients underwent isolated coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) using a pedicled(More)
We experienced H-reflex may be evoked with supramaximal stimulation in patients with cerebrovascular disease (CVD). In this study, we investigated the relationship between the characteristic appearances of H-reflex and F-wave with increased stimulus intensity and neurological signs. We examined the H-reflex and F-wave of the affected arm with increased(More)
A case of neoplastic aneurysm caused by left atrial myxoma is reported. The patient was a 50-year-old woman who has been suffered from occasional vertigo and syncopal attack. She was admitted with a sudden loss of consciousness and cerebellar ataxia on December 1, 1983. Cerebral angiogram revealed multiple aneurysms in the periphery of both middle cerebral(More)
