BACKGROUND Several trials have been conducted to compare the clinical results between anatomic double-bundle and single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction procedures. In these studies, however, the number of patients was insufficient to compare the clinical results of the 2 procedures. HYPOTHESIS The anatomic double-bundle procedure(More)
A new classification of the anomalous arrangement of pancreaticobiliary ducts (APBD) has been proposed following amendments and modificiations of the previous one. Fifty-one cases of choledochal cyst complicated with APBD were extensively examined and analyzed for clear visualization of the APBD system to make a standard classification. APBD were classified(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to clinically and radiologically compare the utility, osteoconductivity, and absorbability of hydroxyapatite (HAp) and beta-tricalcium phosphate (TCP) spacers in medial open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO). METHODS Thirty-eight patients underwent medial open-wedge HTO with a locking plate. In the first 19 knees, a(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the operation time required and the clinical outcome 2 years postoperatively, after anatomic double-bundle ACL reconstructions using hamstring tendon grafts fixed with either the EndoButton-CL-BTB(®) (ECL-BTB) or the EndoButton-CL(®) (ECL). METHODS Forty-six patients, who underwent anatomic double-bundle ACL(More)
BACKGROUND The data available from the previously reported clinical studies remains insufficient concerning the hamstring graft preparation in double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that there are no significant differences between the semitendinosus tendon alone and the semitendinosus and gracilis(More)
BACKGROUND Tunnel enlargement and coalition following double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with hamstring tendon autografts has not yet been sufficiently studied. HYPOTHESIS The incidence and the degree of femoral tunnel enlargement will be significantly greater than those for tibial tunnel enlargement after anatomic double-bundle(More)
Computer graphics application becomes more and more attractive recently as the popularization of the smart phone and computer tablet. It is interested us what we can do through network for making 3DCG models. We have designed and developed an interactive 3DCG Builder system and tried to apply it on internet environment for on-line multi-player. In this(More)
BACKGROUND In anatomic double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, there are great controversies concerning the ideal graft tension protocols. The purpose of this study was to clarify differences in the effect of two graft tension protocols on the clinical outcome after anatomic double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)(More)
