| A new approach to the design of teleoperation systems is presented. It is proposed that the teleoperation slave be a coarse-ne manipulator with a ne-motion wrist identical to the teleoperation master. By using a combination of position and rate control, such a system would require only small operator hand motions but would provide low mechanical(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the neurological recovery and fusion rate of patients with myelopathy who were treated with anterior corpectomy and anterior cervical plating. METHODS The results of 17 cervical myelopathy patients who underwent decompression and anterior cervical plating were retrospectively reviewed at a mean follow-up of 2 years. RESULTS By(More)
PURPOSE To assess the length of the patellar tendon in Chinese and its correlation with patient age, gender, and operated side. METHODS 109 men and 11 women aged 15 to 45 (mean, 25) years underwent arthroscopic bone-tendon-bone reconstruction for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) insufficiency. 55 (46%) injured the left side, and 65 (54%) the right side.(More)
A 15-month-old boy presented with a 2-day history of a wry neck (bent to the left side) with no definite trauma. He had bilateral upper limb weakness and was afebrile, conscious, and stable. There was no spontaneous movement in both upper limbs. Magnetic resonance imaging of the cervical and thoracic spine demonstrated an extensive spontaneous spinal(More)
The renal and proximal tubule response to contralateral kidney exclusion was studied in a variety of circumstances. Recollection micropuncture studies were performed to assess the response to contralateral kidney clamping in the normal or a remnant kidney of the dog. Acute clamping of the contralateral kidney for a normal and unilateral remnant kidney(More)
Chronic nephron loss is compensated by functional adaptations which preserve electrolyte homeostasis. The response to volume expansion and diuretics was tested in dogs. Three phase recollection micropuncture studies were performed to assess the response of the remnant kidney in various stages of renal failure to furosemide administration (10 mg/Kg) and(More)
