OBJECTIVE Prehospital use of antiplatelet agents has been associated with an increased risk for intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) as well as a secondary increase in ICH volume after the initial hemorrhage. Strategies to reestablish platelet aggregation are used in clinical practice, but without any established guidelines or recommendations. This article serves(More)
OBJECT The purpose of this study focusing on fusion rate was to determine the efficacy of recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) use in posterior instrumented fusions of the craniocervical junction in the pediatric population. The authors previously reported the short-term (mean follow-up 11 months) safety and efficacy of rhBMP-2 use in(More)
Abnormally synchronized neural oscillations within the subthalamic nucleus have been proposed as a contributor to the pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease. Recent studies have demonstrated phase-amplitude coupling between beta rhythms and high frequency oscillations in the subthalamic nucleus in unmedicated Parkinsonian patients. However, the nature of(More)
OBJECT Quality improvement methods are being implemented in various areas of medicine. In an effort to reduce the complex (instrumented) spine infection rate in pediatric patients, a standardized protocol was developed and implemented at an institution with a high case volume of instrumented spine fusion procedures in the pediatric age group.
