Comparison of cyclic compression, cyclic distraction and rigid fixation. Bone healing in rabbits.
A tibial osteotomy was created in rabbits and was fixed with an external fixator. The rabbits were divided into 3 groups in which cyclic distraction, cyclic compression and rigid fixation wereExpand
Importance of soft tissue inhomogeneity in magnetic peripheral nerve stimulation.
In magnetic peripheral nerve stimulation with a figure-of-eight coil, a 'tangential-edge' coil orientation (the nerve is beneath the coil intersection and perpendicular to the coil wings) is idealExpand
Risk factors of myelopathy at the atlantoaxial level in spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita
Abstract Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia congenita (SEDC) can be accompanied by hypoplasia of the odontoid and/or lax ligaments which may lead to spinal cord compression. Since an early diagnosis ofExpand
Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome without mental retardation (Smith-McCort dysplasia): morphological findings in the growth plate of the iliac crest.
Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome without mental retardation (Smith-McCort dysplasia) (SM) has clinical and radiographic findings similar to those of Dyggve-Melchior-Clausen syndrome (DMC) except forExpand
Stimulation of Bone Formation by Recombinant Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 in Callotasis Bone Lengthening of Rabbits
Bone lengthening by callotasis is one of the most useful methods not only for the treatment of short extremities but also for extensive bone defects; however, the procedure takes a long timeExpand
Shoulder arthrodesis by external fixation.
The choice of pin site in shoulder arthrodesis after brachial plexus injury is important for efficient external fixation. The pins are inserted into the coracoid process from the anterior aspect andExpand
Expansive cervical laminoplasties – observations on comparative changes in spinous process lengths following longitudinal laminal divisions using autogenous bone or hydroxyapatite spacers
Expansive laminoplasty is devised to preserve the posterior structures, including the original length of the spinous process which anchors the nucheal muscles, in order to prevent the postoperativeExpand
A case of Satoyoshi's syndrome.
Satoyoshi's syndrome is a rare neurologic disorder characterized by progressive muscle spasms, alopecia, diarrhea, and skeletal abnormalities. We describe a 21-year-old woman with Satoyoshi'sExpand
Measurement of the tensile forces during bone lengthening.
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of lengthening frequency on mechanical environment in limb lengthening. METHODS Tensile forces were continuously monitored usingExpand
Prevention of equinus deformity during tibial lengthening. Comparison of passive stretching with an orthosis.
We have reviewed 28 tibial lengthenings in 14 patients with achondroplasia at an average age of 15 years, and compared the effectiveness of physiotherapy and an orthosis in preventing an equinusExpand
