Age and dressing type as independent predictors of post-operative infection in patients with acute compartment syndrome of the lower leg
The purpose of this study was to determine independent factors, including timing of fasciotomy, that confer an increased risk of post-operative surgical site infection (SSI) in patients presenting with acute compartment syndrome (ACS) of the lower extremity.
Review of Therapeutic Options for the Prevention of VTE in Total Joint Arthroplasty
Hip and knee arthroplasty patients are at high risk of perioperative venous thromboembolic events (VTE). VTE has been well studied in this population and it is recommended that total joint arthroplasty recipients receive chemoprophylactic anticoagulation due to risk factors inherent to the surgical intervention.
Rotational alignment of the knee is different in osteological specimens with and without a large cam deformity of the proximal femur
We studied a large osteological collection for differences in knee rotation based upon the presence or absence of a large cam deformity of the proximal femur.
Macrophage depletion in the murine olfactory epithelium leads to increased neuronal death and decreased neurogenesis
To assess the fatigue and in vivo performance of a new stent-graft incorporating bovine peritoneum lining that is designed for application in peripheral vascular occlusive disease.
Fatigue and in vivo validation of a peritoneum-lined self-expanding nitinol stent-graft
Apoptosis of olfactory sensory neurons (OSNs) induced by olfactory bulbectomy (OBX) leads to the activation of resident macrophages within the olfactory epithelium (OE). These macrophages phagocytose degenerating OSNs and secrete chemokines, which recruit additional macrophages into the OE, and cytokines/growth factors, which regulate basal cell proliferation and differentiation and maturation of OSNs.
Validation of a prospective mortality prediction score for hip fracture patients
Although mortality prediction tools are the subject of significant interest as components of comprehensive hip fracture protocols, few have been applied or validated to prospectively inform ongoing patient management.
