This paper proposes an anatomical parameter, the pelvic incidence, as the key factor for managing the spinal balance. Pelvic and spinal sagittal parameters were investigated for normal and scoliotic adult subjects. The relation between pelvic orientation, and spinal sagittal balance was examined by statistical analysis. A close relationship was observed,(More)
Pelvis and spinal curves were studied with an angular parameter typical of pelvis morphology: pelvic incidence. A significant chain of correlations between positional pelvic and spinal parameters and incidence is known. This study investigated standards of incidence and a predictive equation of lordosis from selective pelvic and spinal individual(More)
The anatomic pelvic parameter "incidence" - the angle between the line perpendicular to the middle of the sacral plate and the line joining the middle of the sacral plate to the center of the bicoxo-femoral axis - has been shown to be strongly correlated with the sacral slope and lumbar lordosis, and ensures the individual an economical standing position.(More)
M 31 is a very tempting target for a microlensing search of compact objects in galactic haloes. It is the nearest large galaxy, it probably has its own dark halo, and its tilted position with respect to the line of sight provides an unmistakable signature of microlensing. However most stars of M 31 are not resolved and one has to use the " pixel method " :(More)
The importance of the sacral pelvic incidence (SPI) in relation to individual variations of sagittal spinal curvature has become well-recognised. We attempted to determine the relationship between SPI and acetabular orientation. The three-dimensional coordinates of 47 homologous points were observed on 51 adult anatomical pelvises (26 female and 25 male).(More)
AgapeZ1 is the brightest and the shortest duration microlensing candidate event found to date in the Agape experiment. It occurred only 42 from the centre of M31 at RA = 0 h 42 m 41.47 s and Dec = 41 • 16 39.1 (J2000). Our photometry shows that the half intensity duration of the event is 5.3 days and at maximum brightness its magnitude is R = 17.9 (M R ∼(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Implantation of total hip arthroplasties raises several important questions concerning the relationship between the orientation of the lumbosacral joint and the acetabular-femoral joint; in other words, between the position of the patients trunk and the orientation of the acetabula. To elucidate better these complex relationships, we(More)
The aim of the AGAPE (Andromeda Gravitational Amplication Pixel Experiment), experiment which has been rst proposed in June 1992 is to examine the distribution of massive astrophysical compact halo objects ((MACHO's) which possibly are in the galactic haloes and which could account for the missing dark matter. Those objects have a mass which is a fraction(More)
