Abstract null null Background null Gluteal-tendon repair (GTR) is reported to be effective for relieving pain and improving clinical function in patients with gluteal-tendon tears. The sit-to-stand (STS) task is an important activity of daily living and is often used to assess functional capacity in clinical populations. Understanding if and how STS performance is altered in individuals with gluteal tendon repair may be an effective marker of GTR outcomes as well as a possible therapeutic target...

Background null Early mobilization after surgery is a key recommendation for people with hip fracture, however this is achieved by only 50% of people. Recumbent bike riding has been used in other populations with limited mobility and has potential to allow early exercise in people post hip fracture. The primary aim of this pilot trial was to demonstrate the feasibility of a trial protocol designed to determine the effect of early post-operative cycling in bed on outcomes in people with hip fract...

INTRODUCTION Advanced hip imaging and surgical findings have demonstrated that a common cause of greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) is hip abductor tendon (HAT) tears. Traditionally, these patients have been managed non-operatively, often with temporary pain relief. More recently, there has been an increase in published work presenting the results of surgical intervention. A variety of open and endoscopic transtendinous, transosseous and/or bone anchored suture surgical techniques have be...

Background and objectives We performed a critical analysis of the 8th edition American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) staging for head and neck cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (HNcSCC) with nodal metastases and compared the performance to the N1S3 and ITEM systems. Methods Multicenter study of 990 patients with metastatic HNcSCC treated with curative intent. The end points of interest were disease-specific (DSS) and overall survival (OS). Model fit was evaluated using Harrell's Concordance I...

Importance The burden of injury and costs of wrist fractures are substantial. Surgical treatment became popular without strong supporting evidence. Objective To assess whether current surgical treatment for displaced distal radius fractures provided better patient-reported wrist pain and function than nonsurgical treatment in patients 60 years and older. Design, Setting, and Participants In this multicenter randomized clinical trial and parallel observational study, 300 eligible patients were sc...

Amaryllidaceae alkaloids are well-known for inhibiting acetylcholine esterase and for its representative galanthamine to treat Alzheimer’s disease in clinical practice. Recently galanthamine is known for modulating the cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway (CAP), in which the parasympathetic vagus nerve inhibits the release of pro-inflammatory cytokine and protects against systemic inflammation during immune challenge. This cholinergic modulation of inflammation involves with the neurotransmissi...

IntroductionInfection is a major complication following joint replacement (JR) surgery. However, little data exist on baseline use of antibiotics following primary JR and how use changes with subsequent revision surgery. Objectives & ApproachOur study objectives were to describe community use of antibiotics before and after primary total hip replacement (THR) and change in use pre and post revision procedure. Registry data were linked with national medication dispensing data using probabilistic ...

Abstract Objectives We aimed to determine if the number of nodal metastases is an independent predictor of survival in HNcSCC, whether it provides additional prognostic information to the AJCC N and TNM stage and identify optimal cut-points for risk stratification. Materials and methods Retrospective multi-institutional cohort study of patients with parotid and/or cervical nodal metastases from HNcSCC treated with curative intent by surgery ± adjuvant therapy. The impact of number of nodal metas...

Patient-specific surgical guides are increasingly demanded. Material Extrusion (ME) is a popular 3D printing technique to fabricate personalized surgical guides. However, the ME process usually generates deleterious surface topography which is not suitable for orthopaedic emergencies. We designed and optimized parametric combinations of a laser polishing approach as post process to improve the surface quality of ME-made poly-lactic acid (PLA) objects. In this study, we investigated the contribut...

Osteoporosis (OP) and osteoporotic fractures (OFs) are common multifactorial and heterogenic disorders of increasing incidence. Helicobacter pylori (H.p.) colonizes the stomach approximately in half of the world’s population, causes gastroduodenal diseases and is prevalent in numerous extra-digestive diseases known to be associated with OP/OF. The studies regarding relationship between H.p. infection (HPI) and OP/OFs are inconsistent. The current review summarizes the relevant literature on the ...
