Usefulness of Myelography in Brachial Plexus Injuries
The results show that myelography can be a reliable and useful pre-exploratory measure to assess the level of the lesion of each injured root. Expand

No conclusions were reached concerning etiology, but common findings included a generalized hyperostotic tendency, a tendency for abnormal glucose metabolism, and low enteral calcium absorption. Expand
Direct nerve crossing with the intercostal nerve to treat avulsion injuries of the brachial plexus.
One hundred seventy-nine patients with root avulsion brachial plexus injuries were treated with direct nerve crossing with the intercostal nerve and 159 cases were followed more than 1 1/2 yearsExpand
Symptomatic ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the cervical spine
A significantly higher incidence of cord signs and smaller average sagittal diameters of the cervical bony spinal canal were obtained in the group with ossification associated with cervical spondylosis. Expand
Expiratory activity in transferred intercostal nerves in brachial plexus injury patients.
Observations indicate that expiratory activity and its duration are actively controlled in humans. Expand

Investigation of brachial plexus injuries by intraoperative cortical somatosensory evoked potentials
To confirm the extent and degree of the nerve lesions in brachial plexus injuries, an intraoperative SEP and NAP recording is very useful, practical, and also indispensable. Expand
The treatment of congenital dislocation of the knee with the pavlik harness
It is believed that the muscles in the thigh which cross both the hip and knee joints, the rectus femoris and hamstrings, play an important role in the spontaneous reduction of the joint. Expand
Clinical application of spinal cord action potential measurement
A practical technique for recording human and animal spinal cord action potentials evoked by epidural electrical stimulation is established and to correlate the findings with both clinically occurring and experimentally produced spinal cord lesions is attempted. Expand
Brachial plexus injuries prognosis of postganglionic lesions
There were no particular differences between the whole and upper types with regard to the recovery rate of the arm muscles, however, the upper type showed better functional recovery than the whole type. Expand
