The stereocilia of the Organ of Corti in 4 different echolocating bats, Myotis adversus, Murina leucogaster, Nyctalus plancyi (Nyctalus velutinus), and Rhinolophus ferrumequinum were observed by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Stereocilia lengths were estimated for comparison with those of non-echolocating mammals. The specialized lengths of outer(More)
The development locally of a malignant neoplasm after total hip arthroplasty is rare but increasingly recognized. Its significance is unclear. The association could be fortuitous. If not, the rarity of the complication argues that constitutional factors are likely to be important in pathogenesis. We describe a case of disseminated osteosarcoma of the hip(More)
The pre-operative lumbar spine radiographs of 200 consecutive patients who had undergone discectomy for prolapsed intervertebral disc were reviewed. Prolapse was recognized as bulging or sequestration of the disc with consequent root compromise. Measurement of the lumbar level of the interiliac line was shown to correlate with the level of disc prolapse and(More)

Open splenoportography was performed on a series of control, "sham-operated" and portacaval-shunt rats. Relevant vascular anatomy was well demonstrated. The criteria for diagnosis of patency, partial and total occlusion of portacaval shunts are mentioned and findings are correlated with postoperative weight variations. The possible significance of(More)
Trial reduction while performing total hip replacement is an essential step of the procedure. This is to check the stability of the hip joint with the selected implant sizes and to assess the leg length to avoid discrepancy. Disengagement of the femoral head trial from the femoral rasp stem with subsequent migration of the trial head into the pelvic cavity(More)
