In a series of private patients 77 per cent over-all satisfactory results were obtained from surgical disk excision performed without spinal fusion. Patients in whom spinal fusion combined with discectomy has been recommended by other authors are not much more satisfied than patients with discectomy alone without fusion (81% versus 74% satisfactory).(More)
IMPORTANCE Disease burden data helps guide research prioritization. OBJECTIVE To determine the extent to which grants issued by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) reflect disease burden, measured by disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) from Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2010 project. DESIGN Two(More)
BACKGROUND Global Burden of Disease Study is a research database containing systematically compiled information from vital statistics and epidemiologic literature to inform research, public policy, and resource allocation. OBJECTIVE We sought to compare mortality among conditions with skin manifestations in 50 developed and 137 developing countries from(More)
IMPORTANCE Burden of disease should inform research prioritization. OBJECTIVE To determine whether systematic reviews and protocols published in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) appropriately reflect disease burden for otolaryngologic conditions as measured by the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2010 project. DESIGN Two investigators(More)
IMPORTANCE Burden of disease should impact research prioritisation. OBJECTIVE To analyse the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) and determine whether systematic reviews and protocols accurately represent disease burden, as measured by disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) from the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) 2010 Study. METHODS Two(More)
The results of the Deyerle method of pin plate fixation for intracapsular fracture of the neck of the femur are less satisfactory than the results in the original literature. We treated 143 intrascapsular neck fractures of the femur by the Deyerle method during the period from 1969 to 1975. Seventy-four patients had follow-ups of one year or had a major(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE Indoor tanning by adults under 35 years of age increases the risk of developing melanoma 59% to 75%. Cost is a major barrier limiting young adults from purchasing indoor tanning services. Our recent study by Boyers et al determined that 18 of 96 major universities, all in the eastern and southern United States, had(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to determine whether disease representation in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews (CDSR) reflects disease burden, measured by the Global Burden of Disease (GBD) Study as disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Two investigators performed independent assessment of ten men's health and urologic diseases(More)
