The increasing clinical incidence and host risk of open fracture-associated infections, as well as the reduced effectiveness of conventional antibiotics to treat such infections, have driven the development of new therapies for the prophylaxis of open fracture-associated infections. We investigated percutaneous supplementation of a natural cytokine (i.e.,(More)
OBJECTIVE Synovium-derived stem cells (SDSCs) have proven to be superior in cartilage regeneration compared with other sources of mesenchymal stem cells. We hypothesized that conventionally passaged SDSCs can be engineered in vitro into cartilage tissue constructs and the engineered premature tissue can be implanted to repair allogeneic full-thickness(More)
Biomedical device-associated infection is one of the most common and problematic complications faced by millions of patients worldwide. The current antibiotic therapy strategies face challenges, the most serious of which is antibiotic resistance. Studies have shown that the systemic level of interleukin 12 (IL-12) decreases following major injuries(More)
Pseudoseptic arthritis is primarily described in rheumatoid arthritis and other systemic inflammatory conditions. To our knowledge, only 1 case report of pseudoseptic arthritis associated with intra-articular injection of a pneumococcal polyvalent vaccine (PPV) has been published. Here, a second case is presented in which a patient presented with swelling,(More)
The use of xenogeneic tissues offers many advantages with respect to availability, quality control, and timing of tissue harvest. Our previous study indicated that implantation of premature tissue constructs from allogeneic synovium-derived stem cells (SDSCs) facilitated cartilage tissue regeneration. The present study investigated the feasibility of(More)
Fractures of the talar neck comprise almost 50% of fractures of the talus and may result in significant long-term morbidity. It is of paramount importance to ensure anatomic reduction of the fracture not only for fracture healing but also for minimizing future posttraumatic arthritic sequelae. In addition to conventional radiographs and computed tomography(More)
This study's objective was to compare the use of two biplanar angled radiographs versus standard posterioanterior (PA) and lateral radiographs in determining preservation of the articular space with regard to pin placement in the distal radius. Various combinations of inclination (pitch) and clockwise/counterclockwise rotation (roll) were used to determine(More)
