In this paper we describe the deformation theory of sandwiched sin-gularities in terms of-constant deformations of plane curves, and a divisor of points on it. This leads to an immediate understanding of the smoothings of sandwiched singularities in terms of pictures: certain conngurations of points and curves with only d-fold points in the plane. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Hip fractures are a leading cause of mortality and disability worldwide, and the number of hip fractures is expected to rise to over 6 million per year by 2050. The optimal approach for the surgical management of displaced femoral neck fractures remains unknown. Current evidence suggests the use of arthroplasty; however, there is lack of(More)
Autosomal dominant osteopetrosis (ADO) is a sclerotic bone disorder due to failure of osteoclasts. ADO poses difficulties during arthroplasty because of the increased chance for iatrogenic fractures due to sclerotic bone. ADO is divided into two types based on radiological findings, fracture risk, and osteoclast activity. These differences suggest less(More)
Background Dorsal instability of the distal ulna can lead to chronic wrist pain and loss of function. Structural changes to the dorsal radioulnar ligaments (DRUL) of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC) and the dorsal capsule around the ulnar head with or without foveal detachment can lead to volar subluxation of the distal radius e.g., dorsal(More)
Three cases are presented of asymptomatic occlusion of the internal carotid artery at level of the skull base due to external compression. In 2 patients the compression was caused by a meningioma infiltrating the skull-base whereas in the third case a giant aneurysm of the i.c.a. caused the compression in the cavernous sinus. Although the patients suffered(More)
