CONCLUSION: TJA patients who are anxious, depressed, or pain catastrophizing have inferior preoperative and postoperative pain and function. However, as compared to their preoperative status, clinically significant improvement can be expected following hip/knee arthroplasty.
CONCLUSIONS: This cohort of Canadian patients aged > 65 years who experienced a fragility fracture at any site are at imminent risk of experiencing subsequent fracture within the next 2 years and should be proactively assessed and treated.
CONCLUSIONS: Faculty had a higher overall satisfaction with their mentoring relationships in orthopedic surgery. Residents reported more favorable results when their mentor was a role model of work-life balance. For optimal success, mentors identified active participation and openness to feedback as the most important quality for a mentee to display. These qualities contribute to a heightened sense of satisfaction among mentors and mentees and can be utilized to further guide development of both...
In 2008, we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, this topic has received increasing attention, and many scientists have entered the field. Our knowledge base and relevant new technologies have also been expanding. Thus, it is important to formulate on a regular basis updated guidelines for monitoring autophagy in different organisms. Despite numerous reviews, there continues to be confusion regarding acceptable methods to evaluate autophagy,...
CONCLUSIONS: As interest in utilizing predictive analytics in spine surgery increases, there is a concomitant increase in the number of published prediction models that differ in methodology and performance. Prior to applying these models to patient care, these models must be evaluated. To begin addressing this issue, the authors proposed a grading system that compares these models based on various metrics related to their original design as well as internal and external validation. Ultimately,...
Background. Artificial intelligence (AI) is an era upcoming in medicine and, more recently, in the operating room (OR). Existing literature elaborates mainly on the future possibilities and expectations for AI in surgery. The aim of this study is to systematically provide an overview of the current actual AI applications used to support processes inside the OR. Methods. PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and IEEE Xplore were searched using inclusion criteria for relevant articles up to August...
CONCLUSIONS: The technique offers a visual representation of an engaging Hill-Sachs using 3D-animated reconstructions with open-source software and CT images. In our series of patients, we found multiple shoulder positions that align the Hill-Sachs and glenoid axes that do not necessarily meet the traditional definition of engagement. Identifying all shoulder positions at risk of "engaging," in a broader physiological range, may have critical implications toward selecting the appropriate...
