To distinguish between morbidity caused by harvesting semitendinosus and gracilis tendons and morbidity associated with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery, we performed a prospective randomized study using 65 patients who underwent anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using these tendons. The patients underwent either contralateral (N =(More)
We conducted a prospective, randomized, short-term study to clarify the effects of initial graft tension on clinical outcome after arthroscopically assisted anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with autogenous doubled semitendinosus and gracilis tendons connected in series with polyester tapes. Seventy Japanese patients with chronic, "isolated"(More)
An experimental study was performed in 32 adult beagle dogs to clarify the effect of nonphysiologically high initial tension on the mechanical and histologic properties of in situ frozen anterior cruciate ligaments. Both anterior cruciate ligaments in each dog underwent the in situ freeze-thaw treatment. The tibial insertion of the ligament was then made(More)
 Fingertip pulse waves of 242 children in the 0to 5-year-old age group were measured and chaos analysis was performed on these waves to calculate the Lyapunov exponent. In addition, a questionnaire was used to determine the mothers’ attachment to their children; the resulting degree-of-attachment values were classified into grades. The present study found(More)
 The relationship between biological signals and problem behavior in children was examined in a total of 87 children from a class of two-year-olds and a class of three-year-olds, with input from their mothers. The mothers were asked to fill out a checklist on the behavior of their children. Fingertip pulse waves were measured for use as biological data.(More)
