Our purpose is to study the effect on the blood flow caused by the valve in blood vessel. We examine the possibility that thrombosis is caused by pressing the artificial valve. We tried to solve the flow of blood by numerical analysis with an incompressibility Navier-Stokes equation. We supposed the static boundary condition about vessel shape, although(More)
AIM To investigate the association of grip strength and activities of daily living independence in older adults, using a newly-developed grip strength measuring device. METHODS Patients who visited the clinic for memory disorders at the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology (142 men and 205 women, mean age 74.8 ± 8.8 years) were included in the(More)
BACKGROUND Double-tiered subchondral support (DSS) procedure is two-row fixation in which proximal screws support the dorsal subchondral bone, whereas distal screws support the volar central subchondral bone, using the volar variable-angle locking plate to achieve better anatomical reduction. We examined whether DSS improves clinical outcome, complication(More)
Jerk-cost as a measure of jaw movement smoothness has been used to evaluate the masticatory function of patients with tooth loss and malocclusion. Jerk-cost measuring systems have thus far been unable to determine the jerk-cost of each chewing phase over time. The purposes of this study were (i) to develop a new method for measuring momentary jerk-cost of(More)
In the discussion section, eighth sentence of the first paragraph should read as: ''In our study, though there were no significant differences in clinical outcomes, we identified a significant reduction in final VT, UV, and change in VT''.

Jerk-cost is an inverse measure of movement smoothness and can be calculated from the first-time derivative of acceleration obtained from a tri-axial piezoelectric accelerometer (TPA), or from the third-time derivative of position obtained from a jaw-tracking device. The aims of this study were to determine, in 10 asymptomatic subjects who are chewing gum,(More)
