METHODS Forty male patients, in which both femoral and tibial 9-mm tunnels were performed because of the graft size, were(More)
We evaluated the behaviour of plasma fibrinogen in subjects undergoing physical training in a prospective non-controlled open study, carried out in 14 sedentary, mildly hypertensive individuals (mean age 52 +/- 5 years). Subjects underwent 3 months of controlled physical training (3 times a week) tailored to reach, at each session, 80-90% of maximal heart(More)

The heterotopic ossification is linked to knee traumatism, intramedullary nailing of the tibia and after partial patellectomy, but(More)
