Im Nailing Of Proximal Tibial Shaft Fractures

Location: http://www.wheelessonline.com/ortho/im_nailing_of_proximal_tibial_fractures

Varus knee osteoarthritis

Location: http://www.jrheum.com/subscribers/03/12/2521.html

Osteoarthritis (OA) is believed to arise from the interplay of many factors, some of them mechanical. Typically there is deterioration or failure of the joints' cartilaginous bearing surfaces, and to a lesser extent of the collagenous supporting structures.
