PURPOSE The rate of infection in patients having growth sparing surgery for early onset scoliosis has been reported up to 25 % during the course of treatment. A recent study demonstrated significant variability in the approach to infection prevention in adolescent and neuromuscular scoliosis. The purpose of this study is to conduct a similar survey in order(More)
To elucidate the biochemical basis of airway hyperreactivity, we studied the relationships between in vivo airway sensitivity of guinea pigs to histamine and their tracheal beta-adrenergic binding sites, Ca++- and (Na+-K+)-ATPase activities, and composition of phospholipids. The relationships between tracheal and plasma phospholipids were also examined.(More)
Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic population in the United States and type 2 diabetes is a major health burden in this population, but little effort has been made to study the prevalence of diabetic vertebral fragility in Latinos. We performed a cross-sectional study to determine vertebral fracture prevalence in a hospital-based population of South(More)
Violence is the leading cause of death in the USA. The cost of violence due to gunshot wound is about $425 billion. While the closed fracture of the humerus is common, humeral shaft fractures caused by gunshot wound occur infrequently. There is much controversy regarding their management, i.e. should these injuries be treated surgically or can they be(More)
BACKGROUND Spondylocostal dysplasia (SCD) constitutes a heterogeneous patient group with multiple vertebral formations and segmentation defects of the entire spine, with asymmetric rib malformations. Respiratory failure has been reported in spondylocostal dysplasia secondary to thoracic insufficiency syndrome. The vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib(More)
We present the case of a female patient with a subacute paraneoplastic brainstem neurological syndrome associated with breast cancer and the development of anti-Ri antineuronal antibodies (ANNAs). It is an important syndrome to identify because of the need for urgent investigation and management to reduce progressive and irreversible neurological(More)
BACKGROUND Jarcho-Levin syndrome represents a spectrum of clinical and radiographic irregularities including abnormal vertebral segmentation or formation defects, rib deformities, and short-trunk dwarfism. These abnormalities cause reduced thoracic capacity for lung development, resulting in thoracic insufficiency syndrome. In the present study, we reviewed(More)
Therapeutic decisions for congenital scoliosis rely on Cobb angle measurements on consecutive radiographs. There have been no studies documenting the variability of measuring the Cobb angle using 3D-CT images in children with congenital scoliosis. The purpose of this study was to compare the reliability and measurement errors using X-ray images and those(More)
