Trust is more than just another interesting, difficult, though only recently widely studied social phenomenon. The current rise in interest in this phenomenon (as reflected in recent writings by, among others, Fukuyama, Seligman, Gambetta, Giddens, Levi, Misztal, Putnam, and Eisenstadt) as well as the closely related group of phenomena such as social(More)
Inert gas washout tests, performed using the single- or multiple-breath washout technique, were first described over 60 years ago. As measures of ventilation distribution inhomogeneity, they offer complementary information to standard lung function tests, such as spirometry, as well as improved feasibility across wider age ranges and improved sensitivity in(More)
In this study the acoustic and articulatory variabilities of speakers with different palate shapes were compared. Since the cross-sectional area of the vocal tract changes less for a slight change in tongue position if the palate is domeshaped than if it is flat, the acoustic variability should be greater for flat palates than for domeshaped ones.(More)
OBJECTIVE Prospective assessment of the efficacy and tolerability of intra-articular sodium hyaluronate (SH; Ostenil mini) and triamcinolone acetonide (TA; Volon A10) for treatment of osteoarthritis (OA) of the carpometacarpal (CMC) joint of the thumb in a 26-week, controlled, randomized, on an intention to treat, masked-observer study. METHODS Patients(More)
There is increasing interest in using the Multiple Breath Washout technique and the lung clearance index (LCI) for detecting early pulmonary changes, for example, in cystic fibrosis lung disease. However, there are still limited data regarding equipment specific reference ranges, repeatability and reproducibility. The aim of this prospective study was to(More)
The goal of this study was to evaluate the differences in angle reproduction capability after nonconstrained posterior cruciate ligament retaining total knee arthroplasty after a follow-up time of 63.9 months compared with the healthy contralateral leg and a control group. In 28 total knee arthroplasty patients (mean age, 65.7 yr) and 25 control subjects(More)
It is widely accepted that CF lung disease starts before clinical symptoms become apparent or spirometry deteriorates. Computed chest tomography (CT) is the reference method for identifying structural changes in CF; however, radiation exposure limits its use as a monitoring tool. It has been suggested that the Lung Clearance Index (LCI) measured by Multiple(More)
Although pulmonary function testing plays a key role in the diagnosis and management of chronic pulmonary conditions in children under 6 years of age, objective physiologic assessment is limited in the clinical care of infants and children less than 6 years old, due to the challenges of measuring lung function in this age range. Ongoing research in lung(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy and safety of intraarticular sodium hyaluronate (SH) compared with intraarticular glucocorticoids (triamcinolone acetonide; TA) in the treatment of chronic nonradicular lumbar pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty patients were included in this randomized, controlled, blind-observer clinical study and randomly assigned to(More)
