PURPOSE To evaluate the risk factors related to the development of new fractures in adjacent vertebrae after vertebroplasty. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study was conducted on 106 patients in whom 212 vertebroplasties were performed during a period of 3 years. Evaluations of the five vertebrae superior and inferior to the treated vertebra were performed.(More)
STUDY DESIGN A prospective study of 19 consecutive patients who underwent multislice computed tomography (CT)-guided cervical transforaminal steroid injection. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and the outcome of cervical transforaminal steroid injection guided by multislice CT fluoroscopy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Cervical transforaminal steroid(More)
Surgical outcomes after arthroscopic subacromial decompression and debridement in bursal and articular partial thickness rotator cuff tears with a tear depth of < 50% were compared. Twenty-four articular and 13 bursal partial thickness rotator cuff tears were evaluated for pain relief and functional recovery. At 6 months postoperatively, the average pain(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective randomized noninferiority trial. PURPOSE To evaluate whether the union rate of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) using a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) cage filled with a mixture of hydroxyapatite (HA) and demineralized bone matrix (DBM) is inferior to that of a mixture of β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and HA.

This study was conducted to obtain data concerning suture failure by identifying the change in bone mineral density in the proximal humerus relative to age and gender. Bone mineral density of the greater tuberosity, humeral head, and surgical neck of the proximal humerus was measured in 175 individuals (74 men and 101 women) aged >40 years. Compared to(More)
We are reporting two cases of calcaneal fractures with posterior heel pain due to a prominent superior calcaneal tuberosity impinging on the Achilles tendon after a tongue type fracture. Malunion of the tongue fracture fragment resulted in the symptomatic bony prominence, which we defined as the secondary Haglund's deformity. Both cases were treated with(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective controlled study. PURPOSE The results of conventional open surgery was compared with those from minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MI-TLIF) for lumbar fusion to determine which approach resulted in less postoperative paraspinal muscle degeneration. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE MI TLIF is new surgical technique(More)
In assessing information retrieval systems, it is important to know not only the precision of the retrieved set, but also to compare the number of retrieved relevant items to the total number of relevant items. For large collections, such as the TREC test collections, or the World Wide Web, it is not possible to enumerate the entire set of relevant(More)
We construct the action-angle variables of a classical integrable model dened on complex projective phase space and calculate the quantum mechanical propagator in the coherent state path integral representation using the stationary phase approximation. We show that the resulting expression for the propagator coincides with the exact propagator which was(More)
