In a series of 300 total hip replacements, nine (3 per cent) dislocated. Precise measurements of the orientation of the acetabular cup were made and it was found that anterior dislocations were associated with increased acetabular-component anteversion. There was no significant correlation between cup-orientation angle and posterior dislocation. The(More)
An estimated 80,000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears occur annually in the United States. The highest incidence is in individuals 15 to 25 years old who participate in pivoting sports. With an estimated cost for these injuries of almost a billion dollars per year, the ability to identify risk factors and develop prevention strategies has widespread(More)
In an effort to critically define the incidence and clinical characteristics of secondary responses to cisplatin-based therapy in patients with ovarian cancer previously treated with a cisplatin-based program, a retrospective review was undertaken of patients at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center who received greater than or equal to two(More)
The elastic moduli of calcified cartilage and subchondral bone tissues were measured experimentally with use of a three-point bending test. Specimens were obtained from a bovine patella and the distal end of a bovine femur, from two different animals. Fifteen specimens were tested as "pure" subchondral bone beams, and 15 were tested as composite calcified(More)
A long-term problem associated with total joint replacements is the formation of a fibrous tissue at the bone-cement interface which may compromise the fixation of the prosthesis. In this study, harvestable amounts of interfacial fibrous tissue were generated using a prosthetic replacement of the canine stifle joint as an animal model. The collected tissues(More)
The LK26 antigen is a cell surface glycoprotein (M(r)35,000 to 40,000) of normal placenta and gestational choriocarcinomas that shows highly restricted distribution in normal tissues, being expressed primarily in a subset of simple epithelia. In this study, immunohistochemical methods were used to examine LK26 expression in 78 ovarian tumors and > 400(More)
Considerable debate centers on the optimal treatment for vulvar melanoma, as well as those clinicopathological factors influencing prognosis. We reviewed 80 patients with vulvar melanoma seen between 1949 and 1990. Primary tumors were assessed according to Chung (47 patients) and Breslow (65 patients) microstaging systems. Fifty-nine patients (76%)(More)
A procedure has been developed to measure the elastic modulus of small, irregularly shaped specimens without significantly disturbing the specimen's internal or surface structure. This procedure was developed to measure the average elastic modulus of isolated trabeculae from human cancellous bone tissue. The procedure combines direct testing of a cantilever(More)
Decorin is one important member of the family of small leucine-rich proteoglycans, which are widely distributed in connective tissues in the body such as tendon and ligament. Decorin may be responsible for collagen fibril connection in those tissues. A recent hypothesis suggests that decorin may bind to collagen with its core protein while binding to(More)
