BACKGROUND Degenerative disc disease often causes severe low-back pain, a public health problem with huge economic and life quality impact. Chronic cases often require surgery, which may lead to biomechanical problems and accelerated degeneration of the adjacent segments. Autologous mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) treatments have shown feasibility, safety(More)
Question: A 76-year-old man presented with and was hospitalized for a respiratory tract infection. He had a medical history of hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease, and he had also carried an aortic mechanical prosthesis for 20 years. Six days after admission, the patient began to suffer progressive dyspnea and a decrease of diuresis, which seemed to be acute(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Pedicle screws in spinal surgery have allowed greater biomechanical stability and higher fusion rates. However, malposition is very common and may cause neurologic, vascular, and visceral injuries and compromise mechanical stability. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the malposition rate between intraoperative computed(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of our study was to determine the presence of heterotopic ossifications (HO) in a series of patients with cervical disk arthroplasty treated with different type of prosthesis, as well as to analyze the most suitable systems for diagnosis. METHODS A retrospective study of patients with cervical disk disease treated with cervical(More)
Slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) mainly affects overweight prepubertal children. It is usually idiopathic, but endocrinological diseases are proposed as the main cause. SCFE occurs before the closing of the femoral physis, which generally occurs at 18 years in males and 16 years in females, therefore it is considered a children's disease. However,(More)
