From 1969 through 1979, 171 patients with localized but inoperable or unresectable non-oat-cell carcinoma (NOCC) of the lung completed high-dose definitive irradiation. One hundred fifteen received continuous course irradiation to 6000-6500 rad at 180-200 rad/day. Fifty-six received split-course irradiation to 5500 rad at 250-300 rad/day, which included a(More)
Tensile tests to failure were performed on the distal femoral growth plate of rabbits. The measured tensile forces, together with animal weight and dimensional measurements of the femur, were used to develop a noninvasive method of predicting growth failure loads and to examine the effects of age on the tensile strength of the growth plate. Growth plate(More)
OBJECT The authors describe a new type of artificial disc called a single-unit artificial disc (SUAD). It is a single-unit disc without components, and there is no fixation system with which to maintain it in the disc space. It is theorized that its shape, hardness, and surface consistency, together with the compressive force exerted by the body's axial(More)
