The present study was undertaken to identify the factors responsible for hip joint dislocation after total hip arthroplasty, laying emphasis on analysis of the background variables of the patients. Of the 317 hips included in the study, ten (3.2%) dislocated. Only the anteversion angle of the cup differed significantly between the dislocation group and the(More)
Two cases of Werner's syndrome are reported. The first case is that of a man with grey hair since his 20s, and alopecia since aged about 50 years. At the age of 53 years, Werner's syndrome was diagnosed, along with a malignant soft tissue tumour of the hand. The patient underwent ray amputation for the tumour. The subsequent histopathological diagnosis was(More)
This study examined the mid-term (more than 5 years) results of cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA) using Biomet acetabular cups (locking mechanism: Hexloc type or Ringloc type). A series of 58 patients (70 hips) who had undergone cementless THA at our department were available for inclusion in this study. The average age at surgery was 55.2 years, and(More)
It is difficult to treat infected implants of the hip joints. Such treatment involves immeasurable physical and psychological suffering of the patients. We used antibiotic-impregnated cement spacers in 17 cases of infection after total hip arthroplasty and bipolar arthroplasty with good clinical results. We thoroughly removed any foreign material and formed(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) in combination with a chemotherapeutic agent, cis-diammine dichloroplatinum (CDDP) or doxorubicin (DXR), has recently been demonstrated to result in enhanced apoptotic cell death in the sarcoma cell lines MG-63 and SaOS-2. DNA-damaging agents, such as CDDP induced sustained(More)
STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study of whiplash injury patients with vertigo and healthy volunteers consciously pretending to have postural sway as in malingering. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the postural sway in malingerers by posturography. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Malingering is not a problem in the majority of cases with(More)
A retrospective cross-sectional study was designed to evaluate total sagittal spinal alignment in patients with lumbar disc herniation (LDH) and healthy subjects. Abnormal sagittal spinal alignment could cause persistent low back pain in lumbar disease. Previous studies analyzed sciatic scoliotic list in patients with lumbar disc herniation; but there is(More)
This article reports on factors affecting the postoperative results in cubital tunnel syndrome. We evaluated 111 limbs of 107 patients who had been surgically treated for cubital tunnel syndrome. Average patient age was 43.9 years (range: 11-77 years). Postoperative follow-up ranged from 1 to 17 years (mean: 5.2 years). Causal diseases included cubitus(More)
Accurate reproduction of anatomic relationship is important in non-constrained prosthetic arthroplasty. The accurate lateral glenohumeral offset, which indicates a parameter of the lever arm of the deltoid and supraspinatus muscles, is one of the most important elements in achieving the efficient shoulder functions after prosthetic reconstruction. However,(More)
We treated a combined fracture of the greater and lesser tuberosity with head shaft continuity in the proximal humerus. This case is impossible to classify in three of the classifications, the Neer classification, AO Müller classification, or Jakob classification. However, this case has been described as fracture types in two different categories in the(More)
