BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Most patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) have a cam deformity, which may be quantified by measuring the alpha angle and anterior offset ratio (AOR). Knowledge of what constitutes a "normal" alpha angle and AOR is limited. We defined the reference intervals of these measurements from normal hips in the general population.(More)
LTE is well on its way to becoming the primary cellular standard, due to its performance and low cost. Over the next decade we will become dependent on LTE, which is why we must ensure it is secure and available when we need it. Unfortunately, like any wireless technology, disruption through radio jamming is possible. This paper investigates the extent to(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Dormancy has been extensively studied in plants which experience severe winter conditions but much less so in perennial herbaceous plants that must survive summer drought. This paper reviews the current knowledge on summer dormancy in both native and cultivated perennial temperate grasses originating from the Mediterranean Basin, and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate whether patients who have undergone surgical hip dislocation with excision of the ligamentum teres exhibited symptoms of a Type I ligamentum teres rupture. METHOD A questionnaire was designed to enquire about specific symptoms attributed to Type I injuries (complete rupture) in the literature: gross(More)
Femoroacetabular impingement causes pain in the hip in young adults and may predispose to the development of osteoarthritis. Genetic factors are important in the aetiology of osteoarthritis of the hip and may have a role in that of femoroacetabular impingement. We compared 96 siblings of 64 patients treated for primary impingement with a spouse control(More)
The aim of this dry bone study was to determine the range of hip motion to impingement for different hip resurfacing cup positions and component sizes. The maximum angles of hip flexion, extension, abduction, and adduction were calculated from 3-dimensional coordinates for: 1. Cup inclination of 30 degrees , 40 degrees , 50 degrees , 60 degrees , and 70(More)
Femoral neck fracture is one of the most common complications of hip resurfacing and considered by some to be related to reduced blood flow as a consequence of the surgical approach. We measured oxygen concentration during hip resurfacing through the trochanteric flip approach (n = 15 patients) and compared this approach with previous data for the posterior(More)
We report catastrophic early failure of a cemented total hip replacement comprising a modular femoral component with a Zirconia ceramic head and an acetabular component of cross-linked ultra-high molecular-weight polyethylene (Hylamer). Between 1995 and 1999 we implanted 29 hips in 26 patients with a mean age of 49.2 years. Survivorship analysis in this(More)
Diffusion coefficients of huntingtin (Htt) fragments and SOD1 mutants expressed in cells were measured using fluorescence correlation spectroscopy. The diffusion mobilities of both non-pathological Htt fragments (25 polyQs) and pathological Htt fragments (103 polyQs) were much slower than expected for monomers suggesting that they oligomerize. The mobility(More)
