CONCLUSION: The recapitulation of the primary phenotype from passaged zonal chondrocytes introduces a novel method of functional bioengineering of cartilage that resembles the zone-specific biological properties of native cartilage.
Rehabilitation providers and policymakers need valid evidence to make informed decisions about the healthcare needs of the population. Whenever possible, these decisions should be informed by randomized controlled trials (RCTs). However, there are circumstances when evidence needs to be generated rapidly, or when RCTs are not ethical or feasible. These situations apply to studying the effects of complex interventions, including rehabilitation as defined by Cochrane Rehabilitation. Therefore, we...
Accurate pre-operative templating of prosthesis components is an essential factor in successful total hip arthroplasty (THA), including robotically-assisted THA (RA-THA) techniques. We sought to validate the accuracy of a novel, robotic-optimized THA planning software compared to a predicate THA planner for component sizing. We analyzed a series of 199 patients who received manual THA (mTHA) and fluoroscopy-based RA-THA at a single institution. All cases were templated using a predicate...
CONCLUSION: Machine vision navigation technology combined with careful free-hand pedicle screw insertion techniques demonstrated high levels of pedicle screw insertion accuracy, even in patients with challenging anatomy.
Craniosynostosis is a common yet complex birth defect, characterized by premature fusion of the cranial sutures that can be syndromic or nonsyndromic. With over 180 syndromic associations, reaching genetic diagnoses and understanding variations in underlying cellular mechanisms remains a challenge. Variants of FGFR2 are highly associated with craniosynostosis and warrant further investigation. Using the missense mutation FGFR2^(W290R) , an effective mouse model of Crouzon syndrome, craniofacial...
In this article, we present an uptodate outline of acromioclavicular (AC) joint separation. A clear understanding of acromioclavicular joint injury in terms of the mechanism of injury, clinical picture, diagnostic imaging, and most updated surgical techniques used for the treatment can provide the best care for those patients. This article describes updated treatment strategies for AC separation, including type III AC separation which is known most controversial. Finally, we present a proposed...
Para-archery and para-shooting, two very popular adaptive shooting disciplines that have earned their place as major official events in the Paralympic Games, share some similarities, as well as distinctive features in terms of rules, physiological requirements, and equipment used. The International Paralympic Committee has a clear responsibility to ensure that all sports within its jurisdiction, including adaptive shooting, can achieve excellence in their respective fields. To achieve this, the...
