CONCLUSION: By using a new 360° metal-augmented baseplate, the preoperative pathological inclination and retroversion can be corrected without medialization of the joint line. Future clinical results will show whether this bone-preserving procedure improves also the clinical outcomes as compared to asymmetric medialized reaming or wedged BIO-RSA.

CONCLUSION: i-FACTOR met all 4 FDA-mandated noninferiority success criteria and demonstrated safety and efficacy in single-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion for cervical radiculopathy through 6 years postoperatively. Safety outcomes are acceptable, and the clinical and functional outcomes observed at 12 and 24 months remained at 72 months.
CONCLUSIONS: Among the factors identified in this study, worse baseline ODI scores, experiencing AEs, and treatment at an institution without protocols aimed at reducing LOS were predictive of prolonged LOS in all surgical groups. The laminectomy group had the largest variability in LOS.
Granular cell tumors are mesenchymal neoplasms of presumed schwannian differentiation that may present as solitary or multifocal lesions with excision usually being curative. A minority of cases, however, show histological features associated with an increased risk for metastasis and are highly aggressive leading to death in about a third of cases¹ . While benign and malignant cases have been shown to harbor mutations in the H+ATPase genes, there is only limited data examining molecular...
INTRODUCTION: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP) is a rare cutaneous tumour of indeterminate malignant potential. The mainstay treatment for DFSP is surgical resection. Given the reported high local recurrence rate, the ideal resection margin for DFSP is unclear. The purpose of this study was to ascertain the local recurrence and metastatic rate of DFSP and DFSP with fibrosarcomatous degeneration (FS-DFSP), with specific attention to margin status in an attempt to address the issue of margin...
CONCLUSION: The POCUS assessment tool requires further modification and testing prior before it can be used for reliable undergraduate POCUS assessment.
