The aim of the present study was to assess the impact of nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nCPAP) in ischaemic stroke patients followed for 2 yrs. Stroke patients with an apnoea-hypopnoea index ≥ 20 events·h⁻¹ were randomised to early nCPAP (n = 71; 3-6 days after stroke onset) or conventional treatment (n = 69).

PURPOSE Manufacturers of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have introduced narrower femurs to improve bone-implant fit. However, few studies have reported the clinical consequences of mediolateral oversizing. Our hypothesis was that component oversizing negatively influences the results after TKA. METHODS One hundred and twelve prospectively followed patients(More)
Anterior tibial translation was measured in both knees using the radiological Lachman test and the lateral monopodal stance tests in 281 patients with unilateral anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture. Measurements of translation in the medial compartment were more useful than those in the lateral compartment. Measurement of anterior tibial translation in(More)
To analyze the morphology of the tibial plateau, we studied 100 computed tomographic scans of arthritic knees and measured the mediolateral (ML) and anteroposterior (AP) dimensions as well as their aspect ratio using 3 reference axes of rotation: transepicondylar axis (TEA), posterior tibial margin (PTM), and anterior tibial tuberosity (ATT) axis. Relative(More)
Acetabular offset (AO) is the distance between the centre of the femoral head and the true floor of the acetabulum. We quantified the AO in normal hips and compared the displacement of the centre of rotation of the hip (CRH) after conventional and anatomical cup implantation during THA. 100 CT-scans of normal hips were analysed before and after simulating(More)
BACKGROUND During total hip arthroplasty (THA), medialisation of the cup decreases the lever arm of body weight and is considered to be beneficial. Theoretically it should be compensated by an equivalent increase of the femoral offset in order to maintain global offset. GOAL OF THE STUDY We investigated via a numerical model the forces on each bundle of(More)
BACKGROUND In Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA), residual pain may be secondary to soft tissue impingements, which are difficult to visualize around chromium-cobalt implants using medical imaging, so their interactions remain poorly understood. The goal of this work was to establish a protocol for in-vitro imaging of the soft tissues around TKA, usable during(More)
Erratum Unfortunately, after publication of this article (Bonnin et al. 2016), it was noticed that the name of Mo Saffarini was incorrectly displayed as Moreno Saffarini. The corrected author list can be seen above and the original article has been updated to correct this error. (2016) Imaging the implant-soft tissue interactions in total knee arthroplasty.(More)
