Sarcopenia and mortality after liver transplantation.
BACKGROUND Surgeons frequently struggle to determine patient suitability for liver transplantation. Objective and comprehensive measures of overall burden of disease, such as sarcopenia, could informExpand
Correlating femoral shape with patellar kinematics in patients with patellofemoral pain
The etiology of patellofemoral pain is likely related to pathological femoral shape and soft‐tissue restraints imbalance. These factors may result in various maltracking patterns in patients withExpand
Analytic Morphomics, Core Muscle Size, and Surgical Outcomes
Objective:Assess the relationship between lean core muscle size, measured on preoperative cross-sectional images, and surgical outcomes. Background:Novel measures of preoperative risk are needed.Expand
Morphometric age and mortality after liver transplant.
IMPORTANCE Morphometric assessment has emerged as a strong predictor of postoperative morbidity and mortality. However, a gap exists in translating this knowledge to bedside decision making. WeExpand
Frailty, core muscle size, and mortality in patients undergoing open abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
OBJECTIVES Determining operative risk in patients undergoing aortic surgery is a difficult process, as multiple variables converge to affect overall mortality. Patient frailty is certainly aExpand
Abdominal adiposity, body composition and survival after liver transplantation
Current measures of obesity do not accurately describe body composition. Using cross‐sectional imaging, objective measures of musculature and adiposity are possible and may inform efforts to optimizeExpand
Magnetic resonance imaging of urea transporter knockout mice shows renal pelvic abnormalities.
Many transgenic and knockout mice with increased urine flow have structural abnormalities of the renal pelvis and inner medulla. Here, we used high resolution contrast enhanced T1-weighted magneticExpand
Personalized medicine: Enhancing our understanding of pediatric growth with analytic morphomics.
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Analytic morphomics is being used to identify 3-D biologic measures with superior clinical utility and risk stratification over traditional factors such as age, height, and weight.Expand

Persistent Opioid Use Among Pediatric Patients After Surgery
Through a national sample of adolescents and young adults, we investigated the incidence of persistent opioid use after common pediatric surgeries. BACKGROUND: Despite efforts to reduce nonmedicalExpand
