By Prof. Dr. Cornelis Jacob Pieter Thijn (auth.)

It is a brilliant excitement to introduce this publication and its author to the reader. Dr. Thijn has been attracted to double distinction experiences given that he wrote his thesis at the double distinction examina­ tion of the colon. it should sound facetious to kingdom that once he exhausted this box, he used to be short of another sector the place a similar strategy can be used. in spite of the fact that, within the similar targeted and thorough method as in his colon experiences, he has tested the knee joint. in view that the knee is among the so much seriously taxed joints in guy, with a mess of afflictions, a lot of them heavily hooked up with the age of the person, radiological investiga­ tion has proven only a few suggestions over the a long time. the genuine anteroposterior and lateral projections have been ~ and nonetheless are ~ the mainstay of the research. Projections of the intercondylar fossa, and real patellar projections have been used by the way. simply sooner than international battle II the appearance of arthrography as a double distinction research, as promoted via Oberholzer, was once a true breakthrough.

Sample text

In these cases the medial posterior horn remains in situ. This meniscal remnant can already have ruptured, or it can become ruptured in second instance (Fig. 76). If only the centrally luxated part of the meniscus is removed, the peripheral fragment with its irregular central margin remains in situ. Degenerative changes are frequently observed in this central margin (Debnam and Staple, 1974). If the entire meniscus is excised, then fibrous regeneration starts from the capsule. Radin and Bryan (1970) took an arthrogram in the operating room immediately after meniscectomy.
