We have performed an arthroscopic and histological study of the remodelling process of allogeneic tendons transplanted into the human knee as anterior cruciate ligament substitutes. Arthroscopic observations from six weeks to 55 months after operation showed that the grafts were viable, and that early surface hypervascularity subsided with time; moreover,(More)
Among 449 patients with leprosy, 40 had clinical and radiographic evidence of neuroarthropathy in 50 feet. These changes were classified into four types according to the joints first involved by major lesions: ankle (25 feet), midtarsal (15 feet), tarsometatarsal (7 feet) and subtalar (3 feet). The progression of joint destruction was different in each(More)
In order to study the remodelling of collagen fibres of transplanted tendons, one-half of the patellar tendon of the knee in 54 rats was replaced with a radioisotope (3H-proline)-labelled patellar tendon procured from a donor rat. Three transplantation models were used in this study: fresh-frozen allograft, fresh-frozen autograft (fresh-frozen isograft),(More)
A radiographical screening study of 338 leprotic patients was performed. Clinically, according to a nerve score (NS) designed by us, 12.9% of 674 hands showed mild nerve palsy (NS 5 or 6), 75.9% moderate (NS 3 or 4), and 11.4% severe (NS less than 2). Twenty-nine hands of 26 patients (NS 4.2 on average) demonstrated abnormal changes of the wrist joint on(More)
The OpenFlow has been widely used as a standard protocol to actualize Software Defined Networking. With the object of reliability and scalability in a control plane of a more realistic network, management methods utilizing multi-controllers has been getting more developed these days. However, implementing the management methods on multi-controllers might(More)
The purpose of this study is to realize a fast failure recovery method with reducing packet loss on a large-scale complicated network. Though conventional failure recovery methods can work fast with a little control messages, they might be limited for a ring topology. Some studies try to apply the ring failure recovery methods to mesh networks by extracting(More)
In order to determine whether an allogeneic tendon could be used to replace an extra-articular ligament, the right medial collateral ligament from 11 adult dogs was replaced with a fresh-frozen allogeneic patellar tendon. At each of 3, 6, 15, 30 and 52 weeks postoperatively, one dog was killed for micro-angiographical and histological studies; at 52 weeks(More)
