Cumulative effect of 5 daily sessions of theta burst stimulation on corticospinal excitability in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Introduction: Excitotoxicity plays an important role in the pathogenesis of the preferential motor neuron death observed in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Continuous theta burst stimulationExpand

Increased risk for knee replacement surgery after arthroscopic surgery for degenerative meniscal tears: a multi-center longitudinal observational study using data from the osteoarthritis initiative.
OBJECTIVE The primary objective was to assess whether patients with knee osteoarthritis and whom undergo arthroscopic meniscectomy have an increased risk for future knee replacement surgery. DESIGNExpand

Meniscus surgery is still widely performed in the treatment of degenerative meniscus tears in The Netherlands
PurposeStudies have demonstrated rising incidences of meniscus procedures for degenerative meniscus tears in several countries, despite accumulating evidence that questions the efficacy of theExpand

Transcranial direct current stimulation does not modulate motor cortex excitability in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive disease caused by the degeneration of upper and lower motor neurons. The etiology of ALS is unclear, but there is evidence that loss of corticalExpand

Grafting a lubricious coating onto photo-crosslinked poly(trimethylene carbonate.
For biomaterial applications that involve moving parts such as artificial joints, lubricity is an essential property. Poly (trimethylene carbonate) networks are relatively hydrophobic. To create aExpand

The protective effect of meniscus allograft transplantation on articular cartilage: a systematic review of animal studies.
Despite widespread reporting on clinical results, the effect of meniscus allograft transplantation on the development of osteoarthritis is still unclear. The aim of this study was to systematicallyExpand

Comparison of Registered and Published Primary Outcomes in Randomized Controlled Trials of Orthopaedic Surgical Interventions.
BACKGROUND The selective reporting of a subset of the outcomes that had been originally reported to a registry is a potential threat to the validity of evidence-based medicine. The extent ofExpand

The Role of Multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Active Surveillance for Men with Low-risk Prostate Cancer: A Cost-effectiveness Modeling Study.
BACKGROUND Active surveillance (AS) has limitations that include missing high-risk tumors and performing unnecessary biopsies. The use of multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (mpMRI) in AS mayExpand

Arthroscopic meniscectomy for degenerative meniscal tears reduces knee pain but is not cost-effective in a routine health care setting: a multi-center longitudinal observational study using data from
OBJECTIVES It is disputed whether arthroscopic meniscectomy is an (cost-) effective treatment for degenerative meniscus tears in day-to-day clinical practice. The objective of this study was toExpand

Degradation behavior of, and tissue response to photo-crosslinked poly(trimethylene carbonate) networks.
Photo-crosslinked networks prepared from three-armed methacrylate functionalized PTMC oligomers (PTMC-tMA macromers) are attractive materials for developing an anatomically correct meniscus scaffold.Expand
