UNLABELLED The posterior inclination of the tibial plateau, which is referred to as posterior tibial slope, is determined routinely on lateral radiographs. However, radiographically, it is not always possible to reliably recognize the lateral plateau, making a separate assessment of the medial and lateral plateaus difficult. We propose a technique to(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether radiotherapy can be reduced without loss of efficacy from extended field (EF) to involved field (IF) after four cycles of chemotherapy. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1993 and 1998, patients with newly diagnosed early-stage unfavorable HD were enrolled onto this multicenter study. Patients were randomly assigned to receive(More)
PURPOSE In the prospective study 02/96 on primary GI lymphoma, we have collected data on histology, clinical features, and treatment results. In particular, in stages I and II localized primary gastric lymphoma (PGL), our objectives were to reduce treatment intensity and to confirm our hypothesis from study 01/92, which maintained that an organ-preserving(More)
Patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) technology for the implantation of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has a rising interest in the orthopaedic community. Data of PSI are controversially discussed. The hypothesis of this paper is that the radiological accuracy of CT-based PSI is similar to the one of navigated TKA published in the literature. Since 2010,(More)
BACKGROUND The risk of noncontact ACL injury reportedly is increased in patients with a greater posterior tibial slope (PTS), but clinical data are inconsistent. It is unclear whether the medial and lateral PTSs have a different impact on this connection. It also is unknown whether the meniscal slope (MS) is associated with ACL injury. PATIENTS/METHODS(More)
Sulcus-deepening trochleoplasty restores the trochlear groove in patients with patellofemoral instability and underlying trochlear dysplasia. There are types of dysplasia both with (B and D) and without (A and C) a supratrochlear spur. The aim of this study was to identify influencing factors for the clinical outcome following trochleoplasty. Forty-four(More)
One hundred seventy adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) or acute undifferentiated leukemia (AUL) were entered into a prospective multicenter therapy trial at 25 hospitals. The aim of the trial was to improve remission duration by using a modified form of an intensified induction regimen that was successful in childhood ALL, to define(More)
PURPOSE The study was initiated to obtain epidemiologic data and information on anatomic and histologic distribution, clinical features, and treatment results in patients with primary gastrointestinal non-Hodgkin's lymphomas (PGI NHL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Between October 1992 and November 1996, 371 PGI NHL patients were eligible to evaluate clinical(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the interchangeability of femoral and tibial torsion measurements obtained with 3D models based on low-dose biplanar radiographs and standard CT measurements by testing the following two hypotheses: that there is excellent agreement between the two methods and that there is excellent interreader agreement.(More)
BACKGROUND Many surgical procedures are used for the correction of cubitus varus deformity in children. Even if the primary indication is cosmetic, but many poor results have been described. The technique of a supracondylar medial opening wedge osteotomy with external fixation is presented and preliminary results in four cases are reported. TECHNIQUE An(More)
