Outcome of Distal Radius Fractures Using the Short Form 36 Health Survey
The Short Form 36 was found an effective and precise tool for measuring subjective patient information and correlated with components possibly affecting outcome and compared with those of the general population. Expand
Gene transfer to human joints: progress toward a gene therapy of arthritis.
It is possible to transfer a potentially therapeutic gene safely to human rheumatoid joints and to obtain intraarticular, transgene expression, and this conclusion justifies additional efficacy studies and encourages further development of genetic approaches to the treatment of arthritis and related disorders.

Distal Radius Fractures in Older Women: A 10‐Year Follow‐Up Study of Descriptive Characteristics and Risk Factors. The Study of Osteoporotic Fractures
OBJECTIVES: To determine the incidence of distal radius fractures and the characteristics of those fractures and to identify the key risk factors.
Acute Fractures of the Scaphoid
Surgical treatment is also recommended for complex fractures (open fractures, perilunate fracture-dislocations, and scaphoid fractures associated with fracture of the distal radius), very proximal fractures, and fractures for which the diagnosis and treatment have been delayed. Expand
Age and Obesity Are Risk Factors for Adverse Events After Total Hip Arthroplasty
Older and obese patients should be counseled regarding their increased risk for the development of adverse events after THA and the cause of the decline in the rate of adverseEvents between two time periods is unclear and warrants further investigation. Expand
Decreased Length of Stay After TKA Is Not Associated With Increased Readmission Rates in a National Medicare Sample
Optization of cardiac status before discharge and routine primary care physician followup may lead to lower readmission rates, and a reduction in LOS was not associated with an increase in the readmission rate in this sample. Expand
Medical errors in orthopaedics. Results of an AAOS member survey.
Medical errors continue to occur and therefore represent a threat to patient safety and quality assurance efforts can be addressed toward areas with higher error occurrence and high risk (medication and wrong-site surgery). Expand
A cutaneous marker in the Hunter syndrome a report of four cases.
A report of four patients and review of the literature suggest that a cutaneous marker exists for the Hunter syndrome, where firm ivory-white papules and nodules that may coalesce to form ridges or a reticular pattern are seen. Expand
Localization of the oxidative defect in phytanic acid degradation in patients with Refsum's disease.
These studies support the conclusion that the defect in phytanic acid oxidation in Refsum's disease is located in the first step of phytic acid degradation, that is, in the alpha oxidation step leading to formation of alpha-hydroxyphytanic acid. Expand
