OBJECTIVE The primary goal was to determine the ability of older adults to rise from the floor. A secondary goal was to explore how rise ability might differ based on initial body positions and with or without the use of an assistive device. DESIGN Cross-sectional analysis of young, healthy older, and congregate housing older adults. SETTING(More)
OBJECTIVE The middle fossa approach (MFA) is not used as frequently as the traditional translabyrinthine and retrosigmoid approaches for accessing vestibular schwannomas (VSs). Here, MFA was used to remove primarily intracanalicular tumors in patients in whom hearing preservation is a goal of surgery. METHODS A retrospective chart review was performed to(More)
BACKGROUND Use of traditional two-dimensional (2-D) neuroendoscopy is limited by lack of depth perception. The advent of next-generation three-dimensional (3-D) endoscopes potentially compensates for this limitation. The aim of this study was to objectively compare the 2 modalities in a controlled laboratory environment. METHODS Using 2-D and 3-D(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to describe how older adults, particularly more physically impaired older adults, might differ from healthy controls in the body positions used to rise from the floor. DESIGN Cross-sectional analysis of young, healthy older, and congregate housing older women. SETTING University-based laboratory and congregate(More)
OBJECT To evaluate the outcome of patients undergoing a decompressive craniectomy (DC) in traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the factors predicting outcome. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 1,236 patients with TBI operated with a DC from January 2008 to December 2013 at a tertiary care hospital were included in the study. The data from the hospital(More)
OBJECT Bone marrow-derived stem cells enhance the rate of regeneration of neuronal cells leading to clinical improvement in nerve injury, spinal cord injury, and brain infarction. Recent experiments in the local application of bone marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BM-MNCs) in models of sciatic nerve transection in rats have suggested their beneficial role(More)
OBJECTIVE There has been increased interest in the potential importance of biochemical parameters as predictors of outcome in severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI). METHODS Of 107 patients with sTBI (age 18-65 years with a Glasgow Coma Scale score of 4-8 presenting within 8 hours after injury) who were randomized for a placebo-controlled Phase II trial of(More)
We reviewed 51 plate fixations for fracture of the humeral diaphysis managed during the last 3 years. The indications for surgery included non-union, delayed union, polytrauma, neurological involvement and inadequate reduction. All the fractures were stabilized with a Limited Contact Dynamic Compression Plate (LCDC Plate). We found that this plate gave(More)
UNLABELLED Accurate measurement of breast tumour size determines staging and prognosis. Discrepancies amongst clinical examination (CE), ultrasonography (USG), mammography, pathological examination (PE) and magnetic resonance imaging have been reported. However, few studies have evaluated changes in breast tumour size from the operating table to the(More)
