Seven patients who had pain in the anterior aspect of the ankle were found to have a thickened distal fascicle of the anteroinferior tibiofibular ligament. Each patient had a history of an inversion sprain of the ankle followed by chronic pain in the anterior aspect of the ankle. The thickened distal fascicle was resected without loss of stability of the(More)
Femoral component revisions with extensively coated stems have shown promising clinical results, although concerns over stress shielding still exist. We retrospectively reviewed 59 patients undergoing femoral component revision with an extensively hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated stem. The average length of follow-up was 3.3 years (range, 2-5 years). The average(More)
The impact of the reform efforts of the 1990s, as well as the rapid process of globalization, all resulted in far reaching changes in the structure of the Jamaican economy. With these changes, the existing planning and economic models became increasingly limited in scope as they could not adequately reflect the new structural reality. In March 2006, the(More)
Cryostat sections of healthy cervical, vaginal and vulval epithelium were examined using immunohistological labelling techniques and a panel of monoclonal antibodies recognizing Langerhans' cells, T- and B-lymphocytes and HLA-DR antigen. The distribution of Langerhans' cells in squamous epithelium of the cervix, vagina and vulva showed a marked variation(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Imperforate tracheary elements (ITEs) in wood of vessel-bearing angiosperms may or may not transport water. Despite the significance of hydraulic transport for defining ITE types, the combination of cell structure with water transport visualization in planta has received little attention. This study provides a quantitative analysis of(More)
The evolution of lignified xylem allowed for the efficient transport of water under tension, but also exposed the vascular network to the risk of gas emboli and the spread of gas between xylem conduits, thus impeding sap transport to the leaves. A well-known hypothesis proposes that the safety of xylem (its ability to resist embolism formation and spread)(More)
Lymphoid tissue of the endometrium was analysed by histological, immunohistological, and electron microscopical methods in 10 healthy uteri. A panel of monoclonal antibodies recognising macrophages (OKMI), HLA-DR antigen, B lymphocytes, T lymphocytes and their subsets, and dendritic reticulum cells was used in a two stage indirect immunoperoxidase labelling(More)
Plants can be highly segmented organisms with an independently redundant design of organs. In the context of plant hydraulics, leaves may be less embolism resistant than stems, allowing hydraulic failure to be restricted to distal organs that can be readily replaced. We quantified drought-induced embolism in needles and stems of Pinus pinaster using(More)
In this study normal skin and a range of skin tumours, both benign and malignant, have been examined using monoclonal antibodies to identify the distribution and morphology of Langerhans' cells and T cells, the distribution of T lymphocytes and their subsets have been analysed using monoclonal anti-T cell antibodies. The results indicated that Langerhans'(More)
