Postoperative dislocation remains one of the most frequent complications following total hip replacement. In this report, a case is presented that illustrates two potential concerns with postoperative dislocation and subsequent closed reduction. The first complication presented in this report is entrapment of a closed drainage system tube in the joint space(More)
Previous studies have suggested that one general type of osteon exists, rather than the three types previously classified as light, intermediate, and dark. A method is presented that permits rapid, quantitative measurement of the percent transmission of osteons seen in thin section between crossed polarizers. In studies of osteon segments from human(More)

Extensive studies have been made of the biomechanical properties of tissues in vitro. The majority of experiments demonstrate a "preconditioning" effect. This effect is associated with the differences between in vivo and in vitro conditions. Failure to utilize initial or isochronal data may lead to erroneous conclusions. Objective criteria would permit(More)
Cortical bone, at the osteonal level, consists of three phases: mineral, organic, and pore or void phases. In osteonal segments excised from mature human cortical bone, organic volume percent is a constant. Determination of the mineral and organic phase densities present in these segments has led to defining a simple relationship between percent(More)
An in vivo study of a new total finger joint prosthesis was performed to evaluate a biological ingrowth system of attachment of the device to bone. The prosthesis consisted of two conical ribbed ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene plugs that were fixed by impaction into the medullary cavity after reaming. A cobalt--chromium alloy metal stemmed hinge(More)
