Abstract The postoperative results of total ankle arthroplasty (TAA) were surveyed, and the indications of TAA for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were examined. We have performed TAA in properly selected patients with indication of ankle joint destruction due to RA. The subjects were 18 RA patients (20 joints) who underwent TAA between April 1988 and April 1996.(More)
The vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectra of (S)-(+)-2-butanol have been observed in dilute CS(2) solutions. Two strong VCD bands are assigned mainly to the OH bending modes with the aid of quantum chemical calculations. The calculated VCD spectra corresponding to these bands are shown to depend on the conformation of the OH group. To understand this(More)
The dynamic fliplike motion in the (R)-thalidomide dimer has been reported for the first time. The vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectrum of (R)-thalidomide in DMSO-d6 indicates the characteristic nu(CO) bands with opposite signs and reflects the structural property of the equatorial configuration of the phthalimide ring. On the other hand, the VCD(More)
We conducted a study of 82 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who had undergone multiple arthroplasty and investigated their clinical findings and clinical courses. We reviewed the significance of multiple arthroplasty in the treatment of RA, its problems, and measures to solve them. All patients initially regained and maintained good walking capacity.(More)
Near-infrared (NIR) and IR spectra were measured for pyrrole in CCl(4), CHCl(3), and CH(2)Cl(2) to study solvent dependence of absorption intensities and wavenumbers of the fundamental and first overtone of NH stretching vibration. It was found that the wavenumbers of the NH fundamental and its first overtone decrease in the order of CCl(4), CHCl(3), and(More)
The absolute configuration and conformation of 1-phenylethanol (1-PhEtOH) have been determined by matrix-isolation infrared (IR) and vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectroscopy combined with quantum chemical calculations. Quantum chemical calculations have identified that there are three conformers, namely, I, II, and III, in which characteristic(More)
Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectra of 1-amino-2-propanol, of neat sample and in dilute solution of CDCl3, were measured in 2000 to 800 cm(-1) region. Two VCD bands, which appear at 1272 and 1412 cm(-1) in dilute solution, were assigned, respectively, to the OH bending mode and the mode that is influenced by the OH bending of the most stable(More)
Determining the absolute stereochemistry of organic compounds in solution remains a challenge. We investigated the use of Raman optical activity (ROA) spectroscopy to address this problem. The absolute configurations of (+)-(R)- and (-)-(S)-limonene were determined by ROA spectroscopy, which can be applied to smaller amounts of sample as compared with(More)
