The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlation between clinical, radiological and histopathological signs of scaphoid non-unions (SNU) with regard to the age of the fracture, primarily because this is relevant for therapy and compensation claims. Thirty-eight patients with SNU underwent clinical and radiological examination of the wrist prior to(More)
Scaphoid vascularisation was investigated using macroscopic and microscopic techniques in 12 uninjured, formalin fixed cadaver hands. A good blood supply of the scaphoid bone from palmar, dorsal and radial vessel groups with a variety of anastomoses was found which should provide sufficient collateral blood flow from adjacent regions in some patients. Since(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine the influence of age, body mass index (BMI) and leg dominance on the PRT, balance control and foot position sense. MATERIALS AND METHODS The proprioception of the ankle was investigated in 210 participants. All participants completed a questionnaire. The PRT was measured on a tilting platform. The position(More)
OBJECTIVE Cutaneous afferent nerves contribute to joint proprioception. The aim of this study was to retrospectively analyze the proprioceptive influence of the cutaneous afferents to the ankle in patients after sural nerve harvesting in comparison to controls. METHODS The proprioception of the ankle in 24 patients after sural nerve harvesting was(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the influence of extensive work-related use of the feet on functional ankle stability among musicians. METHODS Thirty professional organists were compared to professional pianists and controls. All participants completed a questionnaire. Range of motion (ROM), peroneal reaction time, and positional sense(More)
Subtalar instability is thought to be one of the possible causes for chronic functional instability of the foot and ankle. The purpose of this study was to determine the extent of ligament injury that is followed by subtalar instability and to depict consecutive pathologic joint motion. Twelve fresh human cadaver lower legs were investigated with respect to(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the postural control and functional ankle stability between professional and amateur dancers as well as controls. METHODS Thirty professional dancers were compared to thirty amateur dancers and thirty controls. All participants (n=90) completed a questionnaire. Range of motion (ROM), ankle position sense and(More)
PURPOSE/BACKGROUND Compression of peripheral nerves is a well known complication of articular synovial cysts. The peroneal nerve is the most common site of intraneural ganglia (pseudocysts) originating from the proximal tibiofibular joint. The neurological deficit associated with these cysts is often severe due to delayed diagnostic and surgical treatment.(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the functional ankle stability between professional and amateur soccer players as well as controls. Thirty professional soccer players, 30 amateur soccer players and 30 controls were evaluated. All participants completed a questionnaire. Range of motion (ROM), peroneal reaction time (PRT) and ankle position sense were(More)
Die Indikation zur Anwendung des Fixateur externe am Handskelett hat sich im Lauf der letzten 25 Jahre über die Versorgung von höhergradigen Frakturen ausgedehnt und mittlerweile einen festen Stellenwert im Repertoire des versierten Handchirurgen erhalten. Durch die 3 Hauptwirkungen der externen Fixation wie Distraktion,Kompression und Immobilisation kann(More)
