A circumacetabular osteotomy of the acetabulum was initially done at the University of Tokyo Hospital by one of us (H. T.) in 1968. This procedure, which rotates the acetabulum, was designed to correct a dysplastic acetabulum in adolescents and adults. The surgical exposure combines both an anterior and a posterior approach. Between 1974 and 1982 this(More)
A genetic linkage map covering a large region of the genome with informative markers is essential for plant genome analysis, including identification of quantitative trait loci (QTLs), map-based cloning, and construction of a physical map. We constructed a soybean genetic linkage map using 190 F2 plants derived from a single cross between the soybean(More)
Diagnostic criteria for primary osteoarthritis of the hip joint in the Japanese population were determined by the roentgenographic measurements of the center-edge (CE) angle, the Sharp angle, and the acetabular roof obliquity in 254 normal hips. Primary osteoarthritis must meet the following conditions: (1) absence of femoral head deformities; (2) a CE(More)
Six major and seven minor diagnostic criteria have been developed by the Japanese Investigation Committee for osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH). We have carried out a multicentre study to clarify these. We studied prospectively 277 hips in 222 patients, from six hospitals, who had ONFH and other hip pathology and from whom histological material was(More)

Rotational acetabular osteotomy performed since 1968 is a circumacetabular osteotomy of the acetabulum for the dysplastic hip. The preoperative center-edge angle of Wiberg of 95 hips (89 patients) was -15 degrees or less. Forty-one hips (39 patients) form the basis of this report. They were followed from four years to 16 years and seven months (average,(More)
We studied the prognostic value of MRI in 32 radiographically normal, asymptomatic hips in 25 patients at risk of osteonecrosis from glucocorticoids or alcoholism. The early findings were band-like hypointense zones on spin-echo images. No operations were performed. Life-table survival curves showed that femoral heads in which the hypointense zone traversed(More)
We report the long-term outcome of rotational acetabular osteotomy in 145 dysplastic hips of 131 patients after an average follow-up of 13 (10-23) years. The mean age at operation was 28 (11-52) years. The radiographic severity of osteoarthrosis before operation, according to the criteria of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association, was stage I (no degenerative(More)
The treatment of fracture dislocations of the proximal interphalangeal joint often results in pain and stiffness. A small dynamic external finger fixator was designed to maintain the reduced position of the dislocated middle phalanx and allow early active range-of-motion exercise. Four patients with acute unstable fracture dislocations and three with old(More)
In forty-six patients who had carpal tunnel syndrome, a technique of continuous infusion, given under local anesthesia and without a pneumatic tourniquet, was used to measure pressures in the carpal canal before and after endoscopic release of the transverse carpal ligament (retinaculum flexorum manus). Pressures were similarly measured in sixteen subjects(More)
We correlated preoperative magnetic resonance (MR) images and histopathology of eight femoral heads from patients with osteonecrosis. The signal intensity of the MR image was low in the area where fibrovascular tissue, disintegrated fibrovascular tissue, or amorphous necrotic material occupied the medullary space. On the other hand, the necrotic marrow(More)
