Original articlePorous-coated anatomic (PCA) knee arthroplasty: 3-Year results

AbstractDuring 1984–1986, the authors used the PCA total knee replacement system on 92 knees in 86 patients who were followed for an average of 3.2 years (range, 2.2–4.5 years). Of the 92 knees, 42 were treated due to rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 50 due to primary or secondary osteoarthrosis (OA). The average age of the patients was 60 years (range, 32–78 years). Seventy-one of the 92 prostheses were inserted without the use of methyl methacrylate cement. Fixation screws for the tibial plate were used in eight cases. One knee was revised due to ligamentous laxity by inserting a thicker tibia plate. Radiographically, there was radiolucency of more than 2 mm below two tibial plates (both RA), and four patellar components (2 RA, 2 OA; 4.3% of total) showed a radiolucent zone of 1 mm or more. Clinically, there were no evident loosenings. According to the Weinfeld scale, 80 knees (37 RA, 43 OA; P = NS) had an excellent result, 10 (6 OA, 4 RA) good, and 2 (1 OA, 1 RA) satisfactory. In comparison, the Hungerford scale gave 47 excellent, 30 good, 14 satisfactory, and 1 poor result. These results reflect that cementless PCA total knee replacement also appears to provide good fixation in both OA and RA knees.

Chapter 1 How Many Social Psychologies are There?

Publisher SummaryThis chapter describes the methods applied in social psychology differ from those applied in physics because the two sciences have different objects. Psychophysiological theories explain social influence as a mechanical phenomenon that arises directly out of some sort of sensitivity or sympathy. According to Weber, a meaning can be understood by direct observation or by emotional reactions, whereas the understanding of motives is mediated, that is, it requires additional information and reasoning by which a motive background is constructed. Interaction consists both in people's acts and words, and in the common knowledge and experience that gives them meaning and that enables these meanings to be interpreted. In the individual personality, there are no equivalents for the group level concepts of average of individual traits or distribution of individual traits. The rules according to which individual traits influence the group's syntality are bound up with social organization, which can exist only at the group level.

Psychology in the 1990's: Trends, Threats and Challenges

In the 1990's, psychologists can be expected to pay an ever greater interest to those mechanisms of individual and collective rationality by means of which we can explain global dangers threatening us such as the nuclear arms race. The psychological study of safety systems needed to control these threats will also most likely expand. This, then, may lead to increasing tension between 'scientistic' and 'humanistic' tendencies of psychology. On the other hand, we can also expect more serious attempts to integrate psychology by analyzing its philosophical grounds, by developing historical psychology and, with the help of social psychology, by bridging the gaps between its different sub-branches.
