In its normal lifespan, a knee prosthesis must bear highly demanding loading conditions, going beyond the sole activity of level walking required by ISO standard 14243. We have developed a protocol for in vitro wear simulation of stair climbing on a displacement controlled knee simulator. The flexion/extension angle, intra/extra rotation angle, and(More)
would alter the angle of the pulled papilla. With minor adjustments, cannulation can be achieved. In conclusion, when a hooded major papilla is encountered at ERCP, traction of the papilla by the use of forceps may be useful. Application of clips during ERCP: a new anchoring method for redundant Kerckring's fold covering the duodenal papilla. Capsule(More)
