In 1980, we developed a specially designed brace for treating supracondylar fractures of the humerus in children, along with an easy and safe technique of reduction by skeletal traction. This method, which takes into consideration only the medial tilting and anterior angulation of the distal fragment, achieves complete reduction, ignoring any lateral,(More)
PURPOSE To determine the most appropriate plate fixation for dispersing the stress around screws in mandibular reconstruction. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-eight three-dimensional reconstructed mandibular models with Central (C) or right Lateral (L) defects were created and divided into three groups, fixed with: (1) two screws on each side, (2) three screws(More)
OBJECTIVES Because posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) resection makes flexion gaps wider in total knee replacement (TKR), preserving or sacrificing a PCL affects the gap equivalence; however, there are no criteria for the PCL resection that consider gap situations of each knee. This study aims to investigate gap characteristics of knees and to consider the(More)
We set out this study to verify a hypothesis that orbital floor fractures tend to affect wider areas in patients with unilateral complete cleft palate. Using a striking machine, the inferior orbital rims of eight normal skulls (intact skull group) and eight skulls with parts of the maxillas removed to simulate alveolar and palatal clefts (cleft skull group)(More)
Current epidemiological surveys in the Western Pacific area and Kii Peninsula have suggested that low calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and high aluminum (Al) and manganese (Mn) in river, soil and drinking water may be implicated in the pathogenetic process of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and parkinsonism-dementia (PD). The condition of unbalanced(More)
