From 1982 to 1988, 147 cemented acetabular components were revised with cementless hemispheric press-fit components, with an average follow-up period of 5.7 years (range, 3-9 years). Acetabular defects were typed from 1 to 3 and reconstructed with a bulk or support allograft. Type 1 defects had bone lysis around cement anchor sites and required particulate(More)
This case report describes the clinical course of a boy 12 years and 11 months old with the skeletal maturity of an 11.5-year-old, with a distal radial fracture that completely remodeled with 36 degrees of radial and 10 degrees of dorsal angulation. As this case demonstrates, the distal forearm may correct angulation in more than one plane. The remodeling(More)
Seven ambulatory peripheral vascular insufficiency below-the-knee amputees underwent gait analysis to determine the local pressures on seven prominent plantar regions in their remaining limb. Patients occupied significantly less stance phase time on their remaining limbs. Peak, mean, and total pressures measured at each of the seven prominent areas was(More)
Renal atherosclerosis and fibromuscular dysplasia are the most common causes of curable human renovascular hypertension and renal failure. Vascular reconstruction often preserves renal function, but renal failure is rarely reversed, especially after days of anuria. We report a case of a 23-year-old woman who as a child underwent a nephrectomy for congenital(More)
Micromotion has been shown to affect bony ingrowth into cementless components. This study was designed both to quantitate initial micromotion at the prosthesis-periacetabular bony interface and to compare different methods of commonly employed acetabular component fixations, ie, a press-fit hemispherical titanium cup, a press-fit hemispherical titanium cup(More)
