Biomechanics of the knee : with application to the pathogenesis and the surgical treatment of osteoarthritis by Paul G. J Maquet( Book )

30 editions published between 1976 and 1984 in English and German and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pathological conditions affecting the hip and knee joints occupy a particular place amongst the important orthopaedic entities affecting the extremities. On the one hand they are relatively frequent and on the other they mean for the patient limitation of his ability to walk, because of their considerably detrimental effects. A purposeful basic treatment of these joint diseases (and here osteoarthritis takes pride of place) is only possible if it stems from a reliable biomechanical analysis of the normal and patho logical stressing of the joint in question. Whilst the situation in the hip can be considered to be fundamentally clarified, a com prehensive representation of the knee is still lacking particularly when taking into account the latest knowledge of biomechanics. Recently our concepts of the kinematics of the knee have been completely changed, but the clinically important question of articular stressing remains unanswered. Dr. Maquet has carried out pioneer work in this field for some years in adapting, by analogy, to the knee joint, principles already accepted for the hip joint. Since the knee is not a ball and socket joint, a complicated problem arises for which new thoughts are necessary. The results of the numerous operations carried out by Dr. Maquet according to the biomechanical con siderations, demonstrate that his thinking is fundamentally correct. Above all, it is here again proven (as earlier in the case of the hip) that healing of osteoarthritis depends decisively on reducing and evenly distributing joint pressure

Biomechanics of the hip : as applied to osteoarthritis and related conditions by Paul G. J Maquet( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and German and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. MAQUET, the foremost disciple of Professor PAUWELS' and the orthopae dic heir to the PAUWELS' concepts of osteotomy of the hip for arthritis, has assembled in this one book the strongest and most lucid contemporary statement of the principles and practice of this very important school of hip surgery. Professor PAUWELS' contributions to the understanding of the biomechanics of the hip and to the concepts and execution of osteotomy of the hip for arthritis are outstanding and timeless. With clarity, Dr. MAQUET articulates this position and refines it further in the light of his own investiga tion. While other investigators, of course, differ on individual concepts or princi ples in this book or disagree with specific positions, assumptions, or conclu sions, it is clear to all that this book is a benchmark work. Dr. MAQUET, as Professor PAUWELS always did, illustrates his text lavishly with beautiful examples of individual cases illuminating the principles ad vanced. But in addition, he has gone further and presents long-term follow-up data, quantifying the results of these surgical precepts as experienced in his own practice. It is a work that has been long sought and is richly received. Boston, Massachusetts, 1984 WILLIAM H. HARRIS, M.D

Borelli's On the movement of animals : On the natural motions resulting from gravity by Giovanni Alfonso Borelli( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides an introduction to Borelli's theory on the movement of animals and describes his theory and scientific experiments relating to the natural movements of bodies in a fluid environment. It describes in great detail why and how bodies which present with different magnitudes, weights and shapes move at a greater or a smaller velocity in certain proportion in the fluid environment. Originally published in Italian in 1667, then translated into Latin in 1686, the text of this volume has now been translated into English, making the text accessible to a wide readership. This volu
Nicolaus Steno : biography and original papers of a 17th century scientist by Troels Kardel( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is by far the most exhaustive biography on Niels Stensen, anatomist, geologist and bishop, better known as "Nicolaus Steno". We learn about the scientist's family and background in Lutheran Denmark, of his teachers at home and abroad, of his studies and travels in the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Bohemia and Germany, of his many pioneering achievements in anatomy and geology, of his encounters with Swammerdam, Malpighi and with members of the newly established Royal Society of London and the Accademia del Cimento in Florence, and with the philosopher Spinoza. It further treats Stensen's religious conversion. The book includes the full set of Steno's anatomical and geological scientific papers in original language. The editors thoroughly translated the original Latin text to English, and included numerous footnotes on the background of this bibliographic and scientific treasure from the 17th century

Borelli's On the movement of animals : On the force of percussion by Giovanni Alfonso Borelli( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides an introduction to Borelli?s theory on the movement of animals and demonstrates the nature of the energy of percussion, its causes, properties and effects. Building on and moving away from the theory of mechanics as formulated by Aristotle and Galileo, and countering objections expressed by Stephani degli Angeli among others, Borelli presents a completely mechanical account of the action of muscles, and analyzes the way in which the center of gravity of the animal shifts in locomotion. Originally published in Italian in 1667, then translated into Latin in 1686, the text of this volume has now been translated into English, making the text accessible to a wide readership. This volume is the first of two volumes that contain the Introduction and physical-mathematical illustrations necessary to understand Giovanni Alfonso Borelli?s work On the Movement of Animals, the founding text of seventeenth century biomechanics. The second volume, entitled On The Natural Motions Resulting From Gravity, describes his theory and scientific experiments relating to the natural movements of bodies in a fluid environment
Biomechanics of the normal and diseased hip : theoretical foundation, technique, and results of treatment : an atlas by Friedrich Pauwels( Book )

Orthopaedic surgery today is undergoing a phase of vara, pseudarthrosis of the neck of the femur, and osteo turbulent development.

On the movement of animals by Giovanni Alfonso Borelli( Book )

3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

De Motu animalium is sometimes referred to in the medical literature. But who has read it? The book, originally published in Latin, seemingly constitutes the very first treatise on biomechanics. The author, Giovanni Alfonso Borelli (1608 - 1679), was professor of mathematics and physics in Pisa where he worked with Malpighi, who was professor of theoretical medicine and focused Borelli's interest on the movements of living creatures. This was the time of Galileo, Descartes, Newton and many others, when sciences exploded, sometimes leading to conflicts with religious authorities. De Motu animalium, Borelli's life work, has two parts. In the first part, he analyses the action of the muscles, the movements of the limbs and motions of man and animals, including skating, running, jumping, swimming and flying. The second part deals with what is now called physiology, considered from the point of view of a mechanist: heart beat, blood circulation, breathing, separation of urine from the blood in the kidneys, liver function, reproduction, fatigue, thirst, hunger, fever, and so on. This work shows Borelli to be a genial precursor. He expresses his opinion as a mathematician on problems which afterwards further stimulated the curiosity and endeavours of many generations of researchers. This book will be welcomed by anybody who is interested in the working of living bodies and in the history of human knowledge

Determination of the moments of inertia of the human body and its limbs by Wilhelm Braune( Book )

2 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is another classic contribution by Braune and Fischer to the field of biomechanics, translated here for the first time from the original German edition of 1892. The pendulum method was employed to ascertain accurately the moments and radii of inertia of the human body and its different parts about all axes - transverse, oblique or longitudinal. This elegant method is described in detail, together with the results. Relations were found between the centres of inertia on the one hand, and the lengths and diameters of the body segments on the other. These data were originally prepared for the authors' later work, The Human Gait, to determine the forces exerted on and by the parts of the body during walking. Such work is the basis for solving the mechanical problems related to any movement of the human body: thus, the original results presented here continue to be of immense value to current research and practice
The Battle of the Huertgen Forest by Charles B MacDonald( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Follows the action from start to finish. It is not a pretty story, and the greatest tragedy of it is that -- as the author points out -- if the American commanders had given proper attention to the dams on the Roer River at the southern end of the forest, and captured or demolished them at the outset, most of the terrible combat might have been averted
