Of the technical factors important in achieving a successful total knee arthroplasty, limb alignment has been demonstrated to be most influential in determining implant survival. Intramedullary femoral guide systems rely on placement of the intramedullary rod along the anatomic axis of the femur. In this article, the accuracy of the femoral intramedullary(More)
The UK dietary guidelines for cardiovascular disease acknowledge the importance of long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) - a component of fish oils - in reducing heart disease risk. At the time, it was recommended that the average n-3 PUFA intake should be increased from 0.1 to 0.2 g day(-1). However, since the publication of these(More)
Individuals seeking treatment for their marijuana use rarely achieve sustained abstinence. The objectives of the study are to determine if THC, a cannabinoid agonist, and lofexidine, an α2-adrenergic receptor agonist, given alone and in combination, decreased symptoms of marijuana withdrawal and relapse, defined as a return to marijuana use after a period(More)
A considerable literature has been published on the health benefits of fish, oil-rich fish and fish oils and their constituent long-chain (LC) n-3 PUFA. Evidence from epidemiological studies highlights the cardioprotective attributes of diets rich in fish, especially oil-rich fish. Data from intervention trials are consistent in suggesting that LC n-3 PUFA(More)
Over a 10-year period, 19 patients were seen who had the clinical features of disruption of the syndesmotic ligaments of the ankle. Seventeen of these were available for follow-up by history and 13 by physical examination. The patients underwent an arthroscopy for persistent symptoms an average of 2 years following the injury. Preoperatively the patients(More)
Although it's been reported that women with premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) have increased negative mood, appetite (food cravings and food intake), alcohol intake and cognitive deficits premenstrually, few studies have examined these changes concurrently within the same group of women or compared to women without PMDD. Thus, to date, there is not a(More)
We investigated the relative importance to stability of the four component ligaments of the distal tibiofibular syndesmosis. Eight fresh-frozen cadaver specimens were tested on a hydraulic test system during sequential cutting of the ligaments. The percentage resistance to 2 mm of diastasis was measured for the four ligaments. The anterior inferior(More)
Heavy drinking has increased in recent years and has been linked to numerous health-related risks, particularly in women. A number of factors may play a role in exacerbating the risks linked to heavy drinking, such as impulsivity, which itself is related to a number of risky behaviors. The present study investigated the effects of alcohol (0, 0.5, 0.75(More)
