We studied 20 primary cemented total hip arthroplasties performed using Kerboull-type acetabular reinforcement device for rapidly destructive coxarthrosis. The average patient age at the time of surgery was 68.3 (range, 60-77) years. The mean follow-up period was 6.3 years (3.8-11.8). The mean preoperative Japanese Orthopedic Association hip score was 38.1(More)
UNLABELLED We segregated a QTL on chromosome 11 that affects femoral cross-sectional shape during growth by generating a congenic strain and an additional 16 subcongenic strains of the senescence-accelerated mouse strain, SAMP6. The QTL region was narrowed down to a 10.0-Mbp region. INTRODUCTION Genetic background is known to affect bone characteristics.(More)
The development of bone densitometry has made it clear that there are discrepancies in bone density at various measurement sites in a given individual. This study examined the consistency of bone density measurements across various sites in a strain of laboratory mouse (senescence-accelerated mouse; SAM). A systemic evaluation of the bone density was(More)
BACKGROUND In magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with 3D-double-echo steady-state (3D-DESS) sequences, the cartilage-synovial fluid contrast is reported to be better with a flip angle of 90° than with the conventional flip angle of 40°, and the detection rate of knee cartilage injury may be improved. PURPOSE To compare the diagnostic performance and(More)
Minor instability of the shoulder has recently drawn attention as a cause of shoulder pain in athletes. However, it is difficult to correctly diagnose the direction in which the humeral head translates and subluxates, and to clarify the pathology of the instability. We present a case of a 20-year-old male with an unstable shoulder who could not raise his(More)
UNLABELLED We segregated a QTL for peak BMD on Chr 13 by generating congenic sublines of the senescence-accelerated mouse SAMP6. Sfrp 4 within this locus was responsible for lower BMD of SAMP6. INTRODUCTION Our genome-wide linkage study using SAMP6 and SAMP2 showed a significant quantitative trait locus (QTL) for peak BMD on chromosome (Chr) 13. To verify(More)
Genetic programming is known to affect the peak bone mass and bone loss after maturation. However, little is known about how polymorphic genes on chromosome X (Chr X) modulate bone loss after maturation. We previously reported a quantitative trait locus (QTL) on Chr X, designated Pbd3, which had a suggestive linkage to bone mass, in male SAMP2 and SAMP6(More)
Previously, we identified two significant quantitative trait loci (QTLs) specifying the peak relative bone mass (bone mass corrected for bone size) on chromosomes (Chrs) 11 and 13 by interval mapping in two mouse strains, SAMP2 and SAMP6. The latter strain is an established murine model of senile osteoporosis and exhibits a significantly lower peak relative(More)
PURPOSE To assess bone tunnel enlargement after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with the use of hamstring tendons fixed with a round cannulated interference (RCI) screw in the femur. METHODS A consecutive series of 30 ACL reconstructions performed with hamstring tendons fixed with an RCI screw in the femur and with staples via Leeds-Keio(More)
