In order to permit soft tissue balance under more physiological conditions during total knee arthroplasties (TKAs), an offset-type tensor was developed to obtain soft tissue balancing throughout the range of motion with reduced patello-femoral (PF) and aligned tibiofemoral joints. The main purpose of the present study was to assess intra-operative soft(More)
ADVANCE® Medial Pivot (MP) (Wright Medical) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) was established to replicate normal tibio-femoral knee joint kinematics, however, its influence on the patello-femoral (PF) joint is unclear. The purpose in this study was to assess the PF joint conditions in Advance MP TKA, via radiography and three-dimensional image-matching(More)
It is expected that software receivers will be widely available for radio communication, broadcasting and radio monitoring applications because they are able to be equipped with multimode, multirate and multiband functions in a single hardware platform. This paper describes the basic techniques required for software receivers for both hardware and software.(More)
The sagittal fibular axis serves as an intra-operative landmark during conventional total knee arthroplasty (TKA); however, only a few relevant anatomical studies have been published regarding its use as an extramedullary guide. Furthermore, the correlation between the coronal fibular and tibial mechanical axes in osteoarthritic knees has been only reported(More)
With the dramatic shift in the proportion of younger and more active patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA), the difference in patient-reported outcomes between cruciate-retaining and posterior-stabilized prostheses will become very important. The goal of this study was to clarify and compare the intermediate-term results of cruciate-retaining(More)
This report presents two cases of high-level athletes with bilateral patellar dislocations who were able to return to their preinjury level of activity after bilateral medial patellofemoral ligament (MPFL) reconstruction, without any major complications. Patient 1 was a 19-year-old male volleyball player for a top-level college volleyball team, and patient(More)
BACKGROUND Patient satisfaction has been recognized as an important evaluation of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Therefore, the 2011 Knee Society Knee Scoring System (2011 KSS) was developed in order to quantify patient satisfaction, expectations, and physical activities following TKA. However, very few reports have described subjective evaluation before(More)
BACKGROUND Valgus-impacted femoral neck fractures treated with internal fixation occasionally result in unsatisfactory postoperative locomotive function, partially due to muscle shortening and a decrease in the moment arm. This study quantifies the degree of diminished abduction strength both clinically and biomechanically. METHODS Fifteen patients were(More)
The survey of naturally occurring of auxin polar transport regulators in Asteraceae was investigated using the radish (Raphanus sativus L.) hypocotyl bioassay established in this study. Significant auxin polar transport was observed when radiolabeled indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) was applied at the apical side of radish hypocotyl segments, but not when it was(More)
