Contact between the glenoid and the humeral head in abduction, external rotation, and horizontal extension: a new concept of glenoid track.
To date, no anatomic or biomechanical studies have been conducted to clarify what size of a Hill-Sachs lesion needs to be treated. Nine fresh-frozen cadaveric shoulders were tested in a customExpand

Expression of growth factors in the early phase of supraspinatus tendon healing in rabbits.
Growth factors are known to appear during wound healing. We hypothesized that growth factors would also appear during the healing process of a rotator cuff tear. We determined the expression ofExpand

Factors related to long-term outcome after decompressive surgery for ossification of the ligamentum flavum of the thoracic spine.
OBJECT Factors related to long-term surgical outcome of thoracic myelopathy caused by ossification of the ligamentum flavum (OLF) have not been fully investigated. To evaluate these factors, theExpand

Intermittent administration of human parathyroid hormone enhances bone formation and union at the site of cancellous bone osteotomy in normal and ovariectomized rats.
Intermittent administration of human parathyroid hormone (hPTH) has an anabolic effect on bone in animals and humans and is expected to be a potent agent for the treatment of osteoporosis. However,Expand

Healing of bisphosphonate-associated atypical femoral fractures in patients with osteoporosis: a comparison between treatment with and without teriparatide
Atypical femoral fracture (AFF) often appears with bisphosphonate use. Teriparatide (TPTD) treatment may promote AFF healing, but few controlled or comparative studies have examined the effects ofExpand
