One hundred consecutive Müller curved-stem total hip replacements were reviewed ten years after operation. Twenty patients with twenty-two arthroplasties had died within the ten-year period without having a revision, and twenty-five arthroplasties had been revised for various reasons. Of the remaining fifty-three arthroplasties, thirty-five were classified(More)
Fast transport of intra-axonal organelles was studied in motor nerve from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients. Organelle traffic in ALS nerves demonstrated a significant increase in anterograde mean speed, while retrograde mean speed was decreased compared with that of controls. Retrograde traffic density (organelles per unit time) was also(More)
Osteoid osteomas that arise at the end of a long bone, within the insertion of the joint capsule (juxta-articular, intra-articular), may cause misleading clinical, radiographic, and histologic findings, resulting in unnecessary diagnostic tests and a delay in definitive treatment. To clarify optimum diagnostic procedures, we reviewed 20 cases of(More)
A large, well-encapsulated intraneural lipoma occurred within the sciatic nerve of a 34-year-old woman. In a review of the literature, significant differences were noted between the well-encapsulated and the diffusely infiltrative lipofibromatous hamartoma types of intraneural lipomas. The average age at the time of appearance of the well-encapsulated type(More)
Benign and malignant fibrous tumors of bone are some of the most common tumors encountered by the orthopedic surgeon. Fibrous dysplasia, fibrous cortical defect, non-ossifying fibroma, benign fibrous histiocytoma and osteofibrous dysplasia are benign tumors best treated conservatively or by intralesional/marginal excision. Desmoplastic fibromas are locally(More)
Admixing of several antibiotic powders which were insoluble in methyl methacrylate did not decrease the compressive and diametral tensile strengths of two acrylic bone cements when tested after setting for 1 day and after leaching 40 days in water at 37 degrees C. When antibiotics were added as water solutions, the included water resulted in a significant(More)
Ewing's sarcoma is a small cell malignant tumor that usually arises in the medullary cavity of bone. Less frequently, it originates in soft tissue and may secondarily invade underlying bone. The origin of Ewing's sarcoma in a periosteal location without extension into either the bone or adjacent soft tissue has not been clearly documented. Other malignant(More)
Dedifferentiated chondrosarcomas are primary bone tumors characterized by the presence of both low-grade cartilaginous and high-grade sarcomatous components. The high-grade component usually shows histologic features of either malignant fibrous histiocytoma or fibrosarcoma. We are aware of only 10 published cases in which the high-grade component showed(More)
Desmoid tumors are fibrous neoplasms that are infiltrative and locally aggressive. Although they are histologically benign with negligible metastatic potential, recurrence after surgical resection is common. Pharmacotherapy and radiation treatment have been utilized when surgery has been considered unsuitable. Since April 2003, we have used radiofrequency(More)
