A new operation for atlanto-axial arthrodesis

, : A new operation for atlanto-axial arthrodesis. Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. British Volume 66(3): 422-425

Thirty patients with atlanto-axial subluxation were operated on using the Mitsui Memorial Hospital System. The follow-up averaged one and a half years, and the results were satisfactory in comparison with other operative methods, all patients regaining almost normal function. Stability and safety are the main advantages of this procedure, with almost complete correction of subluxation in most patients.

Endoparasitic development of L. diatraeae (towns) reared in a substitution host G. mellonella L. was studied by dissections of hosts containing known aged parasitoids. The results indicated an average of 2.6 parasitoids/host. Rearing of L. diatrae...
