Forty-seven total hip arthroplasties were reviewed in 33 Chinese patients who were <40 years old at the time of operation. The preoperative diagnosis was avascular necrosis in 40% of the hips. A Charnley prosthesis was inserted using early cementing techniques in every hip. The average follow-up was 14.9 years (range, 6.9-21.1 years). The mean preoperative(More)
Sixty-one primary cementless total hip arthroplasties were performed in 45 Chinese patients <40 years old. There were 27 Anatomic Medullary Locking (AML, Depuy, Warsaw, IN) prostheses and 34 Porous Coated Anatomic (PCA, Howmedica, Rutherford, NJ) prostheses. The average follow-up was 7.6 years (range, 3-11 years). Ten hips (16%) were reoperated; the reason(More)
A 13-year-old boy sustained an injury to both knees upon landing after a forceful jump in a soccer game. Plain radiography and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated bilateral distal patellar tendon avulsions without fracture of the tibial tuberosities and the physes. To our knowledge, this particular injury has not been previously described in the(More)
Sensory level of anesthesia following the injection of 20 ml of 1.5% lidocaine with epinephrine (1:200,000) in 238 adult males averaged T7.7, T5.6, and T5.1 at 10, 20, and 30 minutes, respectively. Patient age had no significant effect on local anesthetic requirements per spinal segment per unit height until age 40 years, which age the calculated amount of(More)
Using liquid chromatography, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and elemental analyses, we verified that a commercially available synthetic bilirubin conjugate is predominantly a ditaurobilirubin (DTB) disodium salt. The Jendrassik-Gróf total bilirubin (TBIL) method quantitatively measures unconjugated bilirubin (Bu) and the Bu-equivalent content in(More)
This paper reports on highly active and stable amorphous Pd nanoparticle electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction. The amorphous catalysts were synthesized by a remarkably facile and quick electroless deposition process newly developed in this study (process time <5 min). An electrode substrate (glassy carbon, carbon cloth) was sequentially dipped(More)
A highly active Pd-P nanoparticle electrocatalyst for formic acid oxidation was synthesized using NaH2PO2 as the reducing agent. The Pd-P nanoparticles were amorphous and exhibited higher specific and mass activity values compared to commercial Pd/C electrocatalyts and reported literature values. Furthermore, the Pd-P nanoparticles were found to be more(More)
A highly active alternative to Pt electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR), which is the cathode-electrode reaction of fuel cells, is sought for higher fuel-cell performance. Our theoretical modelling reveals that B-doped Pd (Pd-B) weakens the absorption of ORR intermediates with nearly optimal binding energy by lowering the barrier(More)
