Matrix-associated autologous chondrocyte transplantation/implantation (MACT/MACI) is a new operation procedure using a cell seeded collagen matrix for the treatment of localized full-thickness cartilage defects. A prospective clinical investigation was carried out in order to clarify whether this proves suitable and confirms objective and subjective(More)
BACKGROUND Radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy is an effective treatment for chronic plantar fasciitis that can be administered to outpatients without anesthesia but has not yet been evaluated in controlled trials. HYPOTHESIS There is no difference in effectiveness between radial extracorporeal shock wave therapy and placebo in the treatment of(More)
Owing to the poor regenerative capacity of cartilage, cartilaginous defects are considered to represent pre-arthrotic factors. In addition to autologous and allogenic osteochondral fragments, proliferative tissue, such as periosteum and perichondrium are increasingly being used as graft material. The aim of treatment is to eliminate the defect and to(More)
Supratentorial subdural hematoma is a well-known complication following spinal interventions. Less often, spinal or supratentorial interventions cause remote cerebellar hemorrhage (RCH). The exact pathomechanism accounting for RCH remains unclear, but an interventional or postinterventional loss of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) seems to be involved in almost(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal treatment strategy following primary total hip or knee replacement remains unknown. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of ergometer cycling after hip or knee replacement surgery on health-related quality of life and patient satisfaction. METHODS Three hundred and sixty-two patients were randomly assigned to either(More)
The first documented case of knee alloarthroplasty infection due to Abiotrophia defectiva, formerly known as nutritionally variant streptococci (NVS) and Streptococcus defectivus, is presented. The microbiology of this bacterium is discussed and clinical features of previously reported cases of infections by NVS are reviewed briefly.
Hintergrund: Die chronisch rezidivierende multifokale Osteomyelitis ist eine seltene Erkrankung unbekannter Ätiologie. Aufgrund fehlender diagnostischer Kriterien stellt sie eine Ausschlußdiagnose dar. Das Ziel dieser Arbeit war die Metaanalyse einer möglichst großen Zahl von Patienten zur Charakterisierung des Krankheitsbilds. Methode: Im Zeitraum von(More)
Hyaline cartilage has only a limited capacity of regeneration, thus, lesions of articular cartilage can lead to early osteoarthrosis. Current concepts in conservative orthopedic therapy do not always lead to satisfying results. As one new attempt to facilitate cartilage repair, autologous transplantation of articular chondrocytes is investigated in(More)
The Ligg. coracohumerale and coracoglenoidale are constant anatomical structures, represented in all the 34preparations investigated. The Lig. coracoglenoidale is a strong band of dense connective tissue, running from the Processus coracoideus to the Tuberculum supraglenoidale. In 27 specimens out of 34 it was the continuation of the M. pectoralis minor(More)
The purpose of this study has been to demonstrate macroscopic and MRI anatomy of the so-called rotator cable, otherwise known as the ligamentum semicirculare humeri (LSCH) of the superior shoulder joint capsule. Twelve shoulder joints from eight cadavers were dissected; seven of which, from four of the cadavers, were studied using MR arthrography (1.5-Tesla(More)
