To establish the quantitative MR diagnostic criteria for discoid lateral meniscus, MR imaging of 60 knees with arthroscopically confirmed discoid lateral menisci and 134 knees with semilunar lateral menisci were analyzed. Following four quantitative parameters were measured. (1) Meniscal width (MW): The minimum meniscal width on the coronal slice. (2) Ratio(More)
Transient retinal and optic nerve ischemia lasting for 20 minutes was produced in Wistar rats by clipping bilateral common carotid arteries and coagulating both vertebral arteries by heat. The uric acid level in the retina and optic nerve were determined by high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection just before induction of(More)
Although several quantitative magnetic resonance (MR) diagnostic criteria for discoid lateral meniscus (DLM) have been described, there are no criteria by which to estimate the size of the medial meniscus. We define a medial meniscus that exceeds the normal size as a "large medial meniscus" (LMM), and the purpose of this study is to establish the(More)
In hemiarthroplasty for femoral head osteonecrosis, collapse and deformity may make femoral head measurement difficult, thus, precluding the selection of an appropriate prosthetic head. We describe a method for measuring the acetabular diameter using acetabular sizing gauges to estimate the prosthetic head size. We evaluated the precision of this method and(More)
The authors studied the differences between the automated static perimetry of high-pass resolution perimeter (HRP) and the kinetic perimetry of the Goldmann perimeter in 12 patients with retinitis pigmentosa. In a total of 10 eyes of 6 patients, we found 19 quadrants in which the patients were not able to recognize the largest ring target even when the(More)
