Treatment of full-thickness cartilage defects in the hip is a major issue for orthopaedic surgeons. Autologous matrix-induced three-dimensional chondrocyte transplantation using three-dimensional spheroids (ACT 3D) may be an option for treatment. The aim of the study is to describe the feasibility and first clinical results of ACT 3D with spheroids at the(More)
Phase II trials are intended to provide information about the dose-response relationship and to support the choice of doses for a pivotal phase III trial. Recently, new analysis methods have been proposed to address these objectives, and guidance is needed to select the most appropriate analysis method in specific situations. We set up a simulation study to(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The optimal operative strategy in patients with severe carotid artery disease undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) is unknown. We sought to investigate the safety and efficacy of synchronous combined carotid endarterectomy and CABG as compared with isolated CABG. METHODS Patients with asymptomatic high-grade carotid(More)
BACKGROUND Locoregional bridging treatments are commonly applied in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) prior to liver transplantation to prevent tumor progression during waiting time. It remains unknown whether pre-transplant radioembolization treatment may increase the prevalence of hepatic artery and biliary complications post-transplant. (More)
Hip arthroscopy is a safe and reproducible method for treating femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and has evolved greatly in recent years. But little is known about the influences on the outcome after surgery. The aims of the current study were to elucidate (1) which parameters can be used as a marker for the presence of chondral and labral lesions, (2) the(More)
