Coated oral 5-aminosalicylic acid therapy for mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis. A randomized study.
TLDR
It is concluded that oral 5-ASA administered in a dosage of 4.8 g per day is effective therapy, at least in the short term, for mildly to moderately active ulcerative colitis.
Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors. A clinicopathologic study of 120 cases
TLDR
The MPNST is an aggressive uncommon neoplasm, and large tumor size, the presence of neurofibromatosis, and total resection are the most important prognostic indicators.
Proximal tibial osteotomy. A critical long-term study of eighty-seven cases.
TLDR
There is a considerable risk of failure of a proximal tibial osteotomy if the alignment is not overcorrected to at least 8 degrees of valgus angulation and if the patient is substantially overweight.
Risk factors for prosthetic joint infection: case-control study.
TLDR
It is suggested that a surgical site infection not involving the joint prosthesis, an NNIS System surgical patient risk index score of 1 or 2, the presence of a malignancy, and a history of a joint arthroplasty are associated with an increased risk of prosthetic joint infection.
Long-term outcome in patients undergoing surgical repair of tetralogy of Fallot.
TLDR
Among patients with surgically repaired tetralogy of Fallot, the rate of long-term survival after the postoperative period is excellent but remains lower than that in the general population.
Effect of femoral head size on wear of the polyethylene acetabular component.
TLDR
The amounts of resorption of the proximal part of the femoral neck and of lysis of the distal part ofthe femur both correlated positively with the extent of linear and volumetric wear; this suggests an association between the amount of debris from wear and these changes in the Femoral Neck and proximal parts of the Femur.
Volvulus of the Colon: Incidence and Mortality
TLDR
Between 1960 and 1980, 137 patients with colonic volvulus (52% cecal, 3% transverse colon, 2% splenic flexure, and 43% sigmoid) were seen at the Mayo Clinic, and total mortality was 14%.
Long-term outcome after surgical repair of isolated atrial septal defect. Follow-up at 27 to 32 years.
TLDR
Among patients with surgically repaired atrial septal defects, those operated on before the age of 25 have an excellent prognosis, but older patients require careful, regular supervision.
