AbstractAbstract PDF
The aim of this study was to confirm the risk factors for low back pain and injury to improve the prevention and treatment of lower back pain. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An epidemiologic study of low back pain and injury was performed with questionnaires distributed to 471 women working at Yeungnam university hospital. The differences in low back pain and injuries among various hospital departments were analyzed by a one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), and the relevant factors included in the questionnaire were determined by a factor analysis. RESULTS: The frequency of low back pain in women in the department of diet and in the maintenance department was higher than among the other departments. The frequency of low back pain was mainly related to the frequency of psychosomatic symptoms. In addition, the low back pain was partially related to the frequency of psychosomatic symptoms and partially related to the frequency of pushing during the workday. The degree of disability from low back pain was increased by lifting and hard physical work and was related to the frequency of psychosomatic symptoms and the degree of work dissatisfaction. The frequency of low back injury was increased by increased standing time during work and hard physical work. The frequency of low back injury was related to advancing age and in part to psychosomatic symptoms. CONCLUSION: Lower back pain and its associated complications are related to psychosomatic factors and type of work. Lower back injury is related to physiological factors such as age. For the prevention and treatment of lower back pain, a multidisciplinary approach is required.

AbstractAbstract PDF
In transtrochanteric rotational osteotomy to treat osteonecrosis of the femoral head, the necrotic superior anterior femoral head is rotated anteriorly around the longitudinal neck axis so that the weight bearing force is transferred to the intact posterior surface. The ratio of transposed intact articular surface of the femoral head to the weight-bearing surface of the acetabulum on postoperative anteroposterior view of the hip roentgenograph is the most important indicator of the prognosis. During the period from December 1992 to June 1994, we treated 31 hips in 28 patients who were indicated for the anterior rotational osteotomy among the patients of osteoncrosis of the femoral head. Among the patients, male were 27 and female was one. Age distribution was from 13 to 62 years old and mean age was 44.3. According to the Ficat and Arlet classification, II A was most in number as 16 II B was 7 and III was 8. As their etiolgic factors, alcohol was most in number as 18, steroid was 3, idiopathic was 5 and trauma was 2. The mean rate of the intact area of the posterior part of the femoral head to the total articular surface on the preoperative lateral view of the hip roentgenograph was 41.8%. The mean ratio of transposed intact articular surface of the femoral head to the weight bearing surface of the acetabulum was 53.8% Fixation devices were screws or dynamic hip screw.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Separation of the symphysis pubis in association with delivery is very rare. The Korean orthopedic and obstetrical literature pertaining to this syndrome is absent. The physiological widening is small and asymptomatic, but a separation of more than one centimeter may occur and in usually symptomatic. A twenty-six-year-old woman of separation of symphysis pubis associated with delivery was treated successfully with the treatment of reduction and pelvic band, with absolute bed rest in the lateral decubitus position.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The treatment of tibial shaft fracture has become one of the most controversial subjects in orthopedic surgery. Comminuted, segmental and rotationally unstable fractures or bone defect at fraction site have problems of the fixation. The interlocking nail solve these problems. We have experienced 8 cases of the tibial shaft fractures treated with interlocking nail from 1986 to 1988. Authors analyzed these cases and out own clinical study. The results were as follows. 1. The average bone union rate was about 15 weeks. 2. The interval between operation and crutch walking was 4.3 weeks. 3. The merits of this operation were the short hospitalization and early adaptation of social activity. 4. The advantage is be able to do early ambulation without following muscular atrophy or joint stiffness. 5. The results were assessed on clinical examination and radiographic appearance by Hamza et al. An excellent results were 7 cases and good result was 1 case.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Fractures of the femoral neck in children are rare and usually the result of severe trauma. The femoral necks in children, in contrast to those of adults, have many anatomic and physiologic differences. Among the late complications encountered are avascular necrosis, coxa vara, premature closure of the proximal capital femoral epiphysis and nonunion. In spite of careful management, significant complication rate often results. Nine cases of fractures of the femoral neck in children which were treated at Yeungnam University Hospital from June 1984 to August 1987 were reviewed. The results obtained are as follows: 1. The main causes of fractures were traffic accidents (5 cases). 2. Among 9 patients, 6 were girls and 3 were boys. 3. According to the classification of Delbet and Colonna, the transcervical fracture (6 cases) was the commonest type. 4. 4 cases were treated by closed reduction and internal fixation, 3 cases were treated by open reduction and internal fixation. 2 cases were treated by skin traction and cast. 5. The results were analyzed according to Ratliff's assessment. 6 cases showed good results, and 3 cases showed poor results. 6. Early diagnosis and good fixation method seemed to be vital to prognosis.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Treatment of the olecranon fractures by prolonged immobilization often results in limited elbow motion. With the use of tension band wiring, anatomical reduction was obtainable, and only a short period of immobilization was needed. We reviewed the cases of 17 patients who underwent surgical treatment of the olecranon fracture. All patients were treated by tension band wiring. In the overall series, we were able to obtain 53 percent excellent, 30 percent good, and 18 percent fair results.

AbstractAbstract PDF
With respect to the histogenesis of the neurofibroma, there are many controversies, since von Recklinghausen postulated that neurofibromas are mainly fibrous tumors arising from the connective tissue of the nerve sheaths. According to the recent studies through the electron microscope, the neoplastic perineurial cells are regarded as the main components of the tumor. So, the neurofibroma enucleated from the median nerve at the level of proximal arm without resulting neurologic sequale was examine through the light-and electron microscope. Ultrastructurally, this tumor is composed of the perineurial cells, fibroblasts, and collagen fibers. The predominant perineurial cells show distinct basal lamina, and contain abundant microfilaments.
