Transplantation of autologous Schwann cells for the repair of segmental peripheral nerve defects.
Peripheral nerve injuries are a source of chronic disability. Incomplete recovery from such injuries results in motor and sensory dysfunction and the potential for the development of chronic pain.… Expand

We have recently found a high accumulation of extracellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the center of healthy porcine intervertebral discs (IVD). Since ATP is a powerful extracellular signaling… Expand
Preoperative skin antisepsis with chlorhexidine gluconate versus povidone-iodine: a prospective analysis of 6959 consecutive spinal surgery patients.
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of 2 common preoperative surgical skin antiseptic agents, ChloraPrep and Betadine, in the reduction of postoperative surgical site… Expand
Porous polymeric structures for tissue engineering.
porous structure biodegradable and biocompatible characterized by a substantially continuous polymer phase with a highly interconnected size open pore comprising large open pores rounded with a… Expand
Small changes in polymer chemistry have a large effect on the bone-implant interface: evaluation of a series of degradable tyrosine-derived polycarbonates in bone defects.
In a series of homologous, tyrosine-based polycarbonates, small changes in the chemical structure of the polymer pendent chain were found to affect the bone response in a long-term (1280 d)… Expand
Influences of Nutrition Supply and Pathways on the Degenerative Patterns in Human Intervertebral Disc
Study Design. Investigation of the effects of the impairment of different nutritional pathways on the intervertebral disc degeneration patterns in terms of spatial distributions of cell density,… Expand
An Unusual Case of Footdrop: Anterior Disc Herniation Mimicking a Nerve Sheath Tumor
OBJECTIVEExtreme lateral disc herniations are described. Usually, the herniated disc is described as being at the lateral edge of the neural foramen. Herniated discs that lodge beyond this location… Expand
