In a prospective clinical and roentgenographic analysis of 79 knees treated by a valgus closing wedge high tibial osteotomy, the average follow-up period was 5.8 years (three to nine years); 80% of the patients had good or excellent results. Correction to a femorotibial angle between 6 degrees and 14 degrees of femorotibial valgus was associated with an(More)
One hundred twenty-eight knees in 107 patients with osteoarthrosis treated by valgus high tibial osteotomy were clinically reviewed. Patients were reviewed from three to 15 years postoperatively (mean, 7.5 years). The revision rate in the osteoarthrotic population was 10.9%. Patients who were older than 60 years of age at the time of surgery had results(More)
Antiserum against purified rat brain hexokinase (ATP: D-hexose 6-phosphotransferase, EC has been used in a study of the distribution of hexokinase during the postnatal development of rat cerebellum and retina. The cells of the external germinal layer of the cerebellum exhibit little or no fluorescence. The Purkinje cells exhibit a transient(More)
The adequacy of the fit of the prosthesis to the tibia is an important variable in the outcome of total knee arthroplasty. A good fit covers the cancellous bone of both condyles, involves the denser bone of the tibial shell, but does not overhang beyond the bone at any point. In this research, an anatomically shaped tibial prosthetic base plate was(More)
The effect of adding the Maquet tibial tubercle elevating procedure to a valgus high tibial osteotomy (HTO) in combined medial and patellofemoral disease had not been established. This prospective study evaluates clinically and roentgenographically the use of this osteotomy combination versus HTO alone in dual-compartment arthritis. Forty-four patients (46(More)
OBJECTIVE To study factors that affect femorotibial (F-T) alignment after valgus closing wedge tibial osteotomy. STUDY DESIGN A review of standardized standing radiographs. Femorotibial alignment was measured 1 year postoperatively for over- and under-correction. Changes in F-T alignment and in tibial plateau angle were measured. SETTING An urban(More)
BACKGROUND Overall response rate to cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is still not optimal. The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the regional myocardial contractile reserve during dobutamine infusion in the area of left ventricular (LV) electrode on the response rate and reverse remodeling LV in patients receiving CRT. METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVES The evidence is conflicting regarding the role of baroreflex in patients with vasovagal syncope. The aim of the study was to measure baroreflex sensitivity (BRS) and hemodynamic parameters during head up tilt test (HUT) with nitroglycerine stimulation. METHODS Nitroglycerine stimulated HUT was performed in 51 patients with the history of(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this prospective study was to investigate the impact of genetic polymorphisms of β3 subunit of G-protein on the occurrence of vasovagal syncope, hemodynamic parameters and heart rate variability during head-up tilt test (HUT). BACKGROUND G-proteins play an important role in the intracellular transmission of impulses in cardiovascular(More)
