In osteonecrosis (ON) of the hip, interruption of angiogenesis is a pathological process that may lead to impairment of the nutrient supply, cell death, and the collapse of bone. However, the process of angiogenesis in ON is not well understood. The purpose of this study was to investigate the expression ...

The incorporation of computer navigation in total hip arthroplasty (THA) has been much slower than for total knee arthroplasty (TKA). One reason for this is that a majority of THAs are performed with the patient in the lateral position through a posterior or lateral approach, making the tracker placement and ...

A systematic review and meta-analysis of trials comparing hip resurfacing to metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty was conducted to determine if there is a difference in serum metal ion levels in patients receiving these implants. EMBASE[R] and MEDLINE[R] databases were searched from inception to December 2010 for all trials involving the ...

Adverse local soft-tissue reactions have been associated with severe osteolysis and implant failure in metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty (THA). Such a causal relationship has not often been associated with non metal-on-metal bearing surfaces. The purpose of this study was to assess the literature for cases of adverse soft-tissue reactions in ...

Acetabular dysplasia is among the most frequent causes of secondary osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip. While hip arthrolasty is a valid option in elderly patients, young and active patients are likely to outlive their implants and therefore may require a different approach. During the last 20 years, the emphasis of ...

Uncemented fixation of implants to bone is a proven technology in traditional hip arthroplasty surgery. However, cement fixation is currently the standard method for the femoral component in hip resurfacing. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of uncemented fixation of the femoral component in the first ...

Hip resurfacing arthroplasty has had excellent clinical outcomes from multiple centers. However, controversy exists regarding the most appropriate patient selection criteria. Many proponents of hip resurfacing believe that narrowing the patient indications with strict inclusion and exclusion criteria may lead to improved outcomes and decreased complication rates. The purpose of ...

Metal-on-metal (MoM) hip arthroplasties comprised of cobalt and chromium alloys continue to be successful alternatives to conventional bearings in younger patients with osteoarthritis (OA). A small proportion of patients have unusually high levels of cobalt and chromium ions postoperatively. Given the increasing prevalence of MoM bearings and the potential for ...

Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing has been proven to be a successful option for treating hip osteoarthritis in young, active patients. However, compared to a standard primary hip arthroplasty, hip resurfacing has a higher degree of technical difficulty. While all resurfacing systems utilize similar principles, there can be some variation in surgical ...

Introduction: Metal-on-metal hip resurfacing has provided an alternative to standard total hip arthroplasty in younger, more active patients. However, detractors argue that many of the benefits of resurfacing can be obtained with the use of larger femoral heads. The purported advantages of the resurfacing procedure include preservation of femoral bone ...

This article is a personal homage to the life and work of Jean Genet playwright, novelist, poet, essayist, and tangential existentialist. His work is as countercultural today as it was when it first appeared, for it presents profound and unsettling questions to contemporary culture; it challenges its cherished values--identity, nationality, ...

Heidegger's enquiry into Being and Dasein can be seen as the foundation for much of existential psychotherapy. Yet different therapists appear to draw on different aspects of Dasein and Heidegger's work to inform their own therapy. This paper will look at the influence of Heidegger on Spinelli and van Deurzen ...

In this paper we use an existential theoretical framework to help interpret the experiences of ten professional jazz musicians. Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (Smith, Jarman and Osborn, 1999) of interviews revealed the psychological dynamics involved in devoting one's life to creating and performing music in a career that can be unstable ...

How do we translate one language into another? Is there such a thing as a mechanical translation? Hans Georg Gadamer (1975) contends that there is no 'purely literal' translation, for we always read a text with our own pre-understanding based on personal, social or cultural experiences. Therefore translation is an ...
Hersch, Edwin - - 2011
This paper serves to introduce the readership to an approach to psychotherapy which is grounded in phenomenological and existential philosophy, one which I have extensively developed elsewhere. In it the intentionality and ontological relatedness of human experience is likened to a beam of light and human existence is seen as ...
Pearce, Richard - - 2011
The principal focus of this paper revolves around the existential preoccupation with what it means to be a person. I argue that the work of Jean-Paul Sartre, in particular through the way he placed consciousness centre-stage in his analysis, allows conceptions of the 'self that help us, as psychotherapists, in ...
Medina, Marc - - 2011
This paper explores the question 'is leadership an art or a science'? The existential dimension is drawn upon to point the way towards an understanding of leadership where the leader's 'process of becoming' and ability to approach each leadership task anew is seen as the real preparedness to lead.
Odde, Dorte - - 2011
This paper argues that motivation, as an existential phenomenon and concept, should be brought into existential therapy since it gives clients the possibility of relating to themselves as human beings, while learning to care about their existence and their selves. The point of convergence is the unfolding of an existential-philosophical ...

Powell, Sally - - 2011
This paper explores Heidegger's interpretation of Plato's Allegory of the cave from Politeia. Unlike Plato, Heidegger sees the essence of truth as a way of being and not an object. This perspective I believe, allows us to see the allegory as a metaphor for the process in therapy.
Schneider, Kirk - - 2011
I propose that despite the nay-saying 1) positive psychology is justifiably a branch of humanistic psychology, and 2) a humanistic positive psychology would be salutary to the profession of psychology. From the standpoint of theory, I show how positive psychology shares humanistic psychology's concern with what it means to be ...

This paper focuses on the theoretical underpinnings of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) and the ways in which IPA draws on these theoretical approaches to inform its distinctive epistemological framework. In addition, IPA's relations to other phenomenological approaches and issues of validity and quality in IPA studies are also considered.
