Infection of human cells with adenovirus serotype 12 (Ad12) induces metaphase fragility of four, and apparently only four, chromosomal loci. Surprisingly, each of these four loci corresponds to a cluster of genes encoding a small abundant structural RNA: the RNU1 and RNU2 loci contain tandemly repeated genes encoding U1 and U2 small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs),(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although diagnostic lumbar selective nerve root blocks are often used to confirm the pain-generating nerve root level, the reported accuracy of these blocks has been variable and their usefulness is controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of diagnostic lumbar selective nerve root blocks to analyze(More)
Study Design Retrospective review. Objective The objective of this study is to describe the natural history of neurologic recovery after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Methods Patients between 18 and 80 years of age, diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy, who underwent single-level ACDF and were followed for a minimum of 2 years were(More)
BACKGROUND Increased awareness regarding the importance of the sagittal spinal profile has led to more aggressive correction of sagittal malalignment. The utilization trends of pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) for sagittal plane correction in spinal deformity surgery have not been well characterized. METHODS A commercially available database(More)
Study Design Systematic review and meta-analysis. Objective To compare the recurrence and perioperative complication rate of en bloc vertebrectomy (EV) and intralesional resection (IR) in the giant cell tumor of the mobile spine (SGCT). Methods We systematically searched publications in the PubMed and Embase databases for reports of SGCTs, excluding the(More)
Utilization trends of pedicle subtraction osteotomies compared to posterior spinal fusion for deformity: A national database analysis between 2008–2011." Abstract Background: Increased awareness regarding the importance of the sagittal spinal profile has led to more aggressive correction of sagittal malalignment. The utilization trends of pedicle(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study. PURPOSE To identify the prevalence of severe headache occurring after cervical posterior surgical fixation (PSF) and to evaluate the clinical and radiological findings associated with severe headache after surgery. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Several studies have reported on the axial pain after cervical surgery. However, to(More)
Introduction Metastatic spinal cancer is a common condition that may lead to spinal instability, pain and paralysis. In the 1980s, surgery was discouraged because results showed worse neurological outcomes and pain compared with radiotherapy alone. However, with the advent of modern imaging and spinal stabilisation techniques, the role of surgery has(More)
