BACKGROUND Unloading treatments for osteoarthritis of the knee, such as valgus braces, have been shown to reduce medial joint-loading and pain. The purpose of this preclinical study was to… Expand
Polyethylene wear on the distal tibial insert surface in total knee arthroplasty
Abstract We studied polyethylene wear damage on articular (superior) and distal (inferior) surfaces of 27 tibial inserts after an average of 50 months in vivo. The damage scoring method overestimated… Expand

Publisher Summary This chapter introduces alternatives to standard contemporary device designs and materials used in shoulder replacement. The shoulder is made up of a number of bones, ligaments, and… Expand
Candida albicans group A-specific soluble antigens demonstrated by quantitative immunoelectrophoresis.
Soluble cytoplasmic extracts of Candida albicans groups A and B were prepared and compared by quantitative immunoelectrophoresis experiments performed with a commercial anti-C. albicans group A… Expand
Severe 'flu'-like symptoms due to isoniazid--a report of three cases.
We present three cases of severe 'flu'-like symptoms in Chinese patients given isoniazid alone. The time course and clinical presentation of these drug reactions were very similar to those observed… Expand
Device-length changes and implant function following surgical implantation of the KineSpring in cadaver knees
Introduction The KineSpring implant system has been shown to provide load reductions at the medial compartment of the knee, and has demonstrated clinical success in reducing pain and increasing… Expand
