UNLABELLED Between January 2000 and May 2003, 50 consecutive Charcot diabetic salvage procedures were performed on 44 patients (average age 55.1 years). Twenty-four women (26 feet) and 20 men (24 feet) underwent a reconstructive limb salvage procedure for diabetic Charcot neuroarthropathy using a systematic surgical approach involving internal and external(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess 7 methods of fixation for a midtarsal osteotomy. Polyurethane foam models (N = 6) and cadaver specimens (N = 4-7) were used to examine the force generated by the different constructs of fixation. A midtarsal osteotomy was performed on each specimen in the test groups. The osteotomies were fixated either with 2(More)
A review of current knowledge of autologous growth factors as used in foot and ankle surgery is presented. This knowledge is clinically correlated with 50 Charcot's foot reconstruction patients who had diabetes and who were randomized to a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) concentration system (Symphony, DePuy, Warsaw, Indiana) or a hollow-fiber hemoconcentration(More)
13C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra were obtained at 50.3 and 100.5 MHz for methanolic and aqueous mixtures of sodium taurocholate, 1-monocapryloyl-rac-glycerol, and caprylic acid. Distortionless Enhancement by Polarization Transfer (DEPT) was used to improve spectral sensitivity and resolution, and to generate calibration curves for quantitative(More)
