Thirty-five patients with intact rotator cuffs who underwent surgery for recurrent stage II impingement were studied at a mean follow-up time of 43 months post-surgery. Twenty-seven patients(More)
The symptomatic rotator cuff-deficient, arthritic glenohumeral joint poses a complex problem for the orthopaedic surgeon. Surgical management can be facilitated by classifying the disorder in one of three diagnostic categories: (1) rotator cuff-tear arthropathy, (2) rheumatoid arthritic shoulder with cuff deficiency, or (3) degenerative arthritic(More)
Ten canine anterior cruciate ligaments (ACLs) were harvested while preserving their bony attachments. Specimens were stained using a modified gold chloride technique, divided into thirds, and serially sliced at 0.5 microns. The slides were viewed to count the mechanoreceptors present. The average numbers of receptors found were: proximal 67, middle 43, and(More)
