Thirty-five osteoligamentous elbows were included in a study on the kinematics of posterolateral elbow joint instability during the pivot shift test (PST) before and after separate ligament cuttings in the lateral collateral ligament complex (LCLC). Division of the annular ligament or the lateral ulnar collateral ligament caused no laxity during the PST.… (More)
We dissected 7 cadaveric elbow specimens, leaving the collateral ligaments and the joint capsule intact. The anterior and the posterior capsule were sequentially transected, followed by kinematic testings. We found no change in joint laxity after total transection of the capsule.
This report investigates the possibility of making effective three dimensional tomographic reconstructions on General Purpose Graphical Processing Units (GPGPU). Tomography is a technique to recreate the interior of an object, from measurements of absorbed energy from projections taken at different angles. When these calculations are done on a computer it… (More)
