We applied specific forces and moments to the knees of fifteen whole lower limbs of cadavera and measured, with a six degrees-of-freedom electrogoniometer, the position of the tibia at which the ligaments and the geometry of the joint limited motion. The limits were determined for anterior and posterior tibial translation, internal and external rotation,(More)
We report for the first time the abnormal increases in posterior subluxation of the medial and lateral tibial plateaus after sectioning the posterolateral structures and posterior cruciate ligament. We applied specific forces and moments to the knees of seven cadaveric whole lower limbs and measured the position of the tibia at which the ligaments and the(More)
UNLABELLED Forty-eight adult mongrel dogs underwent posterior exposure of C4-C5, fixation of the two posterior spinous processes together with a no. 20-gauge cerclage wire, posterior element decortication, wound irrigation and the following: bone fusions (application of a standard volume of iliac crest autograft), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) fusions(More)
Approximately 10%-20% of germline pathogenic variants alter mRNA splicing, with phenotypes often dependent on the stability of the mRNA produced by the mutant allele. To better understand the relationships between genotype, mRNA splicing, and phenotype, we examined clinical and molecular data from 243 probands with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) representing(More)
Melanomas from 20 patients were evaluated for estrogen and progesterone receptors. No restriction as to patient's age, sex, race, or menstrual status was made. Fifteen of the tumors were melanin producing. Of the 20 tumors examined, seven contained more than 3 fm/mg protein of specifically inhibitable estrogen binding. None of the tumors reported here(More)
