It is currently unknown in which ways activity of the ab- and adductor shoulder muscles affects shoulder biomechanics (scapular kinematics and glenohumeral translation), and whether these changes are relevant for alterations of the subacromial space width. The objective of this experimental in vivo study was thus to test the hypotheses that potential(More)
Radiographs of 110 patients who had undergone 120 high tibial osteotomies (60 closed-wedge, 60 open-wedge) were assessed for posterior tibial slope before and after operation, and before removal of the hardware. In the closed-wedge group the mean slope was 5.7 degrees (SD 3.8) before and 2.4 degrees (SD 3.9) immediately after operation, and 2.4 degrees (SD(More)
We describe the modification of an existing method of ligament strain measurement at the knee joint in detail. At ten fresh joint specimens we used that technique where strain gauges are attached to the ligamentous insertions and origins. We both improved the preparation of the attachment site and the application of the strain gauges. In a special apparatus(More)
We provide a unified treatment of indicative and biscuit conditionals on the basis of their status as sentence topics. We show syntactic similarities of the two types of conditionals to two variants of topicality. By extending the approach of topic interpretation of Endriss (to appear) and combining it with the approach to conditionals of Schlenker (2004),(More)
OBJECTIVE Ex vivo studies have suggested that cartilage contact areas and pressure are of high clinical relevance in the etiology of osteoarthritis in patients with patellar subluxation. The aims of this study were therefore to validate in vivo measurements of contact areas with 3D open magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and to study knee joint contact areas(More)
BACKGROUND No established, non-invasive diagnostic procedure for quantifying focal cartilage defects is currently available. OBJECTIVE To test the accuracy of quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (qMRI) for reliable determination of cartilage defect size in various compartments of the human knee. METHODS 24 tibial and patellar cartilage plates were(More)
1. Introduction In this paper we discuss the two German specificity markers bestimmt and gewiss. Both markers share a tendency to indicate wide scope of the modified DP and to require identifiability of a certain kind. In these respects they correspond to specificity markers in other languages such as certain in English and French or koe-wh in Russian,(More)
Although a number of approaches have attempted to model knee kinematics, rarely have they been validated against in vivo data in a larger subject cohort. Here, we assess the feasibility of four-bar linkage mechanisms in addressing knee kinematics and propose a new approach that is capable of accounting for lengthening characteristics of the ligaments,(More)
von Heusinger and Elsi Kaiser for the inclusion of my paper in this issue. Abstract It has been assumed that in articleless languages such as Russian, bare singular NPs in argument positions can receive a defi nite or an indefi nite interpretation. While the defi nite interpretation depends on the broader discourse and may freely arise if the referent is(More)
