BACKGROUND Patients with crowned dens syndrome typically present with severe neck pain and have calcium deposits around the odontoid process of the axis on radiographs. To our knowledge, the cases of only thirty-five patients have been reported in the English-language literature and the clinical features remain unclear. The purposes of this study were to(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the association between clinical symptoms and arthroscopic meniscal findings in patients with early to moderate medial knee osteoarthritis. One hundred and four patients (110 knees) were selected from a group of 132 patients (140 knees) aged ≥50 years who underwent arthroscopic surgery for medial meniscal tears.(More)
In 671 knees of 351 patients, the proximal tibiofibular joint was radiologically investigated. To clearly detect the contour of the joint, radiographs were obtained under fluoroscopic control with the lower extremity internally rotated. The contour was classified into three types: the joint lines of both tibia and fibula are straight (A); the joint line of(More)
We present 12 cases of patients with injury to the posterolateral aspect of the knee accompanied by a compression fracture of the anterior part of the medial tibial plateau. There were 11 male patients and 1 female patient with an average age of 26 years (range, 17 to 44 years). There were 4 cases of posterolateral rotatory instability and 8 cases of(More)
BACKGROUND Cervical myelopathy is more common among Japanese than Westerners. The shorter anteroposterior diameter of the cervical spinal canals (AP diameter) is its probable cause. In recent years, builds of younger Japanese have become larger and been approaching those of Westerners. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the cervical spinal(More)
Five patients with pigmented villonodular synovitis of the knee associated with lesions of the posterior periarticular bursae were treated by posterior exploration, excision of the bursal tissue, and routine anterior synovectomy of the knee. It was hypothesized that complete excision of the posterior periarticular bursae would reduce the high recurrence(More)
This study examined the relationship between the bone quality of the proximal tibia, which was quantitatively investigated by histomorphometric method at the time of total knee arthroplasty, and the occurrence of loosening of an all-polyethylene tibial component in nine rheumatoid arthritis patients. Despite severe osteoporosis, there was no loosening after(More)
INTRODUCTION Posterolateral rotary knee dislocation is a rare orthopedic injury that is considered to be irreducible by closed reduction because of soft tissue incarceration. Here, we present a case of posterolateral rotary knee dislocation, which was reduced by closed manipulation. CASE REPORT The patientwas a 33-year-old man who sustained a twisting(More)
