Ten- to 20-year (average, 14 years) results of primary Charnley low friction arthroplasties performed in patients 50 years of age or younger (55 sockets and 53 femoral prostheses) were compared with those in patients older than 50 years (273 sockets and 273 femoral prostheses). The incidence of radiologic loosening of the socket, including revision cases,(More)
This paper reports the results of a radiological population study on the ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) in both the cervical and the thoracic spine among Japanese. The study was carried out in the Yachiho-mura district in the central part of Japan, where 5074 people were living. X-ray examinations were made of 1058 of the people;(More)
Primary Charnley total hip arthroplasties (THAs) followed for 10 to 20 years were compared between an American (183 sockets and 178 femoral prostheses) and a Japanese (145 sockets and 148 femoral prostheses) series, each performed by a single surgeon at a single hospital using similar techniques. The primary etiology was developmental dysplasia of the hip(More)
A case of neurofibromatosis with spinal paralysis due to arteriovenous fistula is reported. Preoperatively, the appropriate diagnosis was missed because angiography had not been performed. Post-operative angiography disclosed that an arteriovenous fistula formed a tumor-like mass, and that a part of the mass had invaded the spinal canal, compressing the(More)
Femoral bone remodeling after total hip replacement was studied by following patients who received 326 Charnley femoral prostheses for 10 to 20 years (mean, 13.3 years). The radiographic state of the bone remodeling was visually assessed and measured with a digitizer. Demineralization that started proximally and then progressed distally caused cortical(More)
A portable stress-applying device for stress radiography was developed for daily clinical use. Using this device, stress radiography for the diagnosis of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficiency was performed with the knee flexed at 20 degrees and at 90 degrees. A 100-N force was chosen as a standardized stress. The subjects were classified into four(More)
The combination of endogenous hypercortisolism and avascular necrosis is rare. A 53-year-old woman suffering from Cushing's disease, whose presenting symptom was hip-joint pain due to osteoarthritis secondary to avascular necrosis of the femoral head is described. About 6 years passed between a remarkable increase in weight and the onset of hip-joint pain.(More)
We studied the radiographs of 21 1 low-friction arthroplasties, followed for five to 15 years after operation. The first 92 simple hemispherical sockets were fixed with an old technique: eburnated bone in the acetabular roof was removed and only a few large anchor holes were bored for cement fixation. With the next 1 19 sockets, 1 1 1 of which were flanged,(More)
To identify factors affecting radiologically detected loosening of the Charnley femoral prosthesis, 326 femoral prostheses with 10- to 20-year followup were studied. After observation of postoperative radiological changes, the criteria for fixation failure detected radiologically, of femoral prostheses were defined as progression or accompanying occurrences(More)
