The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the four major ligaments of the human knee. In the quadruped stifle (analogous to the knee), based on its anatomical position, it is referred to as the cranial cruciate ligament. The ACL originates from deep within the notch of the distal femur. Its proximal fibers fan out along the medial wall of the lateral femoral condyle. There are two bundles of the ACL the anteromedial and the posterolateral, named according to where the bundles insert into the tibial plateau. The ACL attaches in front of the intercondyloid eminence of the tibia, being blended with the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus. These attachments allow it to resist anterior translation of the tibia, in relation to the femur. Anterior cruciate ligament injury is the most common knee ligament injury especially in athletes.
Just after noon on a spring day in 2006, aspiring singer-songwriter Hilary Williams and her sister Holly - the granddaughters of country legend Hank Williams and daughters of country music star Hank Williams, Jr. - were driving through Mississippi down a rural stretch of Route 61 on their way to their grandfather’s funeral. Suddenly, the front wheel of the truck became caught in one of the many deep ruts and gravel lining the road, causing the vehicle and its passengers to flip over several times, crushing steel and breaking fragile bones as it crashed. Holly was lucky. She only suffered a broken wrist and cuts and bruises. But when the Jaws of Life finally pried Hilary's shattered body free of the wreckage, she was in shock and barely breathing. She had suffered two broken legs, several broken ribs, a ruptured colon, and bruised lungs. Her back, collarbone, tailbone, pelvis, and right femur were fractured. Her hips were crushed. It had taken nearly 30 minutes for an ambulance to arrive, and she had already lost a large amount of blood. Then, as EMTs scrambled to stabilize her in the middle of a muddy Mississippi field, Hilary Williams died. But that was only the beginning. This is a story of struggle and pain. But more so, it is a story of second chances, of love and resolve and recovery. When she was pulled back into life, Hilary’s world changed. It was the beginning of a long, courageous, and inspiring journey during which she would undergo 23 surgeries and years of therapy. Along the way, with her family at her side, Hilary has learned the meaning of strength, not only the strength to survive, but the strength to live with the legend, the talent, the burden, and the privilege of her place in country music’s most famous family. 1.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Legg Calvé Perthes syndrome is a degenerative disease of the hip joint, where growth/loss of bone mass leads to some degree of collapse of the hip joint and to deformity of the ball of the femur and the surface of the hip socket. The disease is characterized by idiopathic avascular osteonecrosis of the capital femoral epiphysis of the femoral head leading to an interruption of the blood supply of the head of the femur close to the hip joint. The disease is typically found in young children, and it can lead to osteoarthritis in adults. The effects of the disease can sometimes continue into adulthood. It is also known more simply as Perthes disease, ischemic necrosis of the hip, coxa plana, osteochondritis and avascular necrosis of the femoral head, Legg Perthes Disease or Legg Calve- Perthes Disease (LCPD). It is named for Arthur Legg, Jacques Calvé and Georg Perthes.

Medical professionals have brought up evidence showing that hip implants are less likely to be successful in women! Researchers in California who studied more than 35,000 cases of artificial hip implants found that women have a slightly higher risk of implant failure compared with men regardless of the type of device that was implanted. Scientific researchers have underlined that though the overall number of failures is relatively small, the reason that they occur more frequently in women than in men is not entirely clear. Nonetheless, biologists have demonstrated that women have smaller joints and bones than men, thus, women need smaller artificial hips. Consequently, medical researchers have detected that devices with a smaller femur head - the ball shaped part of the ball-and-socket joint in an artificial hip - are more likely to dislocate and require surgical repair...

Femur) ist ein Teil des Beines (bei Tieren: der Hintergliedmaße) und befindet sich zwischen Hüfte bzw. Gesäß und Knie bzw. Unterschenkel. Der Oberschenkel wird durch den Oberschenkelknochen (Os femoris oder kurz Femur) gestützt. Dieser ist im Inneren von feinen schwammartigen Knochenbälkchen (Spongiosa oder Trabekeln) ausgefüllt, die entlang der mechanischen Belastungslinien (trajektorellen Linien) ausgerichtet sind. Sie ermöglichen eine sehr hohe Stabilität bei möglichst geringem Materialverbrauch bzw. Gewicht. Ferner werden die Zwischenräume zusätzlich von Knochenmark ausgefüllt und dienen somit zur Blutbildung. Das Knochenmark wird im Alter teilweise durch Fettgewebe ersetzt.
Forensic anthropology, as a sub-discipline of applied physical anthropology, since its inception has contributed immensely in crime scene investigations especially in identification of unknown skeletal material. It is established through numerous studies that long limbs bones have a definite relationship with stature of an individual and thus the length of a long bone could be used to predict the stature. Keeping this in view it is hypothesized that the linear, transverse, sagittal and circumferential dimensions of a long bone should also have a positive relationship with bone length almost in the same manner as a long bone length has it with stature. The present study, conducted on dry and fully ossified long bones, namely humerus, radius, ulna, femur, tibia and fibula aims at assessing the bilateral variations if any in the fragmentary measures of different long bones, correlation pattern between different fragmentary measurements and bone length, to formulate linear regression equations for estimation of bone length from fragmentary measurements and to identify certain new measurements for estimation of bone length, which have not been used by other researchers.

“Jimmy Hatch is a personal hero of mine.” (Anderson Cooper) “Irresistible. . . . A wounded SEAL’s shame becomes a salvation.” (J. Ford Huffman, Military Times) James Hatch is a former special ops Navy SEAL senior chief, master naval parachutist, and expert military dog trainer and handler. On his fateful final mission in Afghanistan, his SEAL team was sent to recover Bowe Bergdahl - the soldier who deserted his post and fell into the hands of Al-Qaida and the Taliban. The mission went south, and Hatch was left with a shattered femur from an AK-47 round and the SEAL dog who fought alongside him was dead. As a result of his horrific leg wound, his 24-year military career came to an end - and with it the only life he’d ever known. In Touching the Dragon, we witness his long road to recovery. Getting well physically required 18 surgeries, 12 months of recovery, and learning to walk again. But getting well mentally would prove to be much tougher, as he fought through the depths of despair, alcoholism, and the pull to end his own life. What emerges is a different kind of hero’s journey, one in which Hatch shows the courage it takes to confess, confront, and overcome his own brokenness. Through the love of family, friends, and his military dogs, Hatch learned remarkable tools and found his purpose, and now he wants to share this wisdom with the rest of us because we all have wounds. 1.

In Kenya, different geographical areas are characterized by differences in anthropogenic activities that may affect many aspects of an organism. Decline in amphibian population appear related to this localized differences. Consequently, identification and characterization of species is urgently needed to detect any changes that may be related to the overlapping. Therefore, this study was designed to determine the morphological variation in African common toad Amietophrynus gutturalis using meristic and morphometric characters.Data collected included that of the species during the rainy seasons in seven areas in Kenya including Nairobi, Taita Hills, Baringo, Mombasa, Kiambu, Meru, and Uasin Gishu. Standard length (SL), Femur length (FL), Eye diameter (ED) Head width (HW), Head length (HL) using Vanier calipers. Weight was measured using a digital weighing device. One-Way ANOVA analyzed differences in morphometric parameters. It was established that the morphototype variations was observed for skin colour, body pattern and body shape.
