Previous studies suggest that dopamine in the nucleus accumbens links noxious or mesolimbic stimulation with the feedback inhibition of nociception. To test the hypothesis that pharmacological agonism at dopamine receptors in the nucleus accumbens elicits antinociception, we bilaterally microinjected dopamine D1- and D2-receptor subtype selective drugs, and(More)
The objective of this study was to compare a cohort of geriatric patients with operatively managed isolated fractures below the hip to a cohort of geriatric patients with operatively managed isolated hip fractures. All patients greater than 59 years of age admitted to our institution for surgical care of an isolated lower extremity fracture during a 3-year(More)
This purpose of this study was to replicate foot–ankle injuries seen in the military and derive human injury probability curves using the human cadaver model. Lower legs were isolated below knee from seventeen unembalmed human cadavers and they were aligned in a 90–90 posture (plantar surface orthogonal to leg). The specimens were loaded along the tibia(More)
AIMS Despite the expansion of arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder, the open deltopectoral approach is increasingly used for the fixation of fractures and arthroplasty of the shoulder. The anatomy of the terminal branches of the posterior circumflex humeral artery (PCHA) has not been described before. We undertook an investigation to correct this omission.(More)
We hypothesised that cells obtained via a Reamer-Irrigator-Aspirator (RIA) system retain substantial osteogenic potential and are at least equivalent to graft harvested from the iliac crest. Graft was harvested using the RIA in 25 patients (mean age 37.6 years (18 to 68)) and from the iliac crest in 21 patients (mean age 44.6 years (24 to 78)), after which(More)
