During the past 2 years, we treated five patients with acral myxoinflammatory fibroblastic sarcoma at our institution. Four patients presented with a firm, painless mass in the hand that appeared over several months. One patient discovered a painless mass in his shoulder region. The five patients initially were diagnosed as having benign conditions and(More)
An anomalous origin of the long head of the biceps tendon (LHBT) from the rotator cable has not been described in the orthopaedic surgery literature. This case report describes the intraoperative findings of this aberrant origin, found incidentally during diagnostic arthroscopy. The concept of the rotator cable and crescent is discussed, and a literature(More)
To determine the role of interleukin (IL)-6 in the increased ozone (O3)-induced inflammation and injury observed in obese vs. lean mice, lean wild-type and leptin-deficient obese (ob/ob) mice were injected with anti-IL-6 antibody (Ab) or isotype control Ab 24 h before exposure to either O3 (2 ppm for 3 h) or room air. Four or 24 h after O3 exposure,(More)
Digital radiography is becoming the standard of care for many hospitals and clinics worldwide. The introduction of this new standard has led to the development of arthroplasty templating software. We sought to compare our results using the standard acetate method with the new software method. Our digital preoperative plan was accurate to within 1 size in(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether obesity affects pulmonary responses following a 3-day ozone exposure. Obese db/db and lean wild-type mice were exposed to ozone (0.3 ppm) for 72 h. In wild-type mice, ozone exposure caused pulmonary injury and inflammation, and these events were associated with reduced pulmonary compliance. In db/db mice,(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between obesity and asthma remains inadequately defined. Studies about how obesity affects asthma control and lung function show conflicting results. Additional focus on the effect of age as a modifier may make clearer the interaction between obesity and asthma phenotype. We sought to use a diverse and well-phenotyped cohort of(More)
The workplace is recognized as a setting that can profoundly influence workers’ health and well-being (1,2). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) workplace health promotion efforts address cancer prevention by focusing on cancer screening programs, community–clinical linkages, and cancer risk factors (eg, tobacco use, physical inactivity)(More)
BACKGROUND Phenotypic presentations in young children with asthma are varied and might contribute to differential responses to asthma controller medications. METHODS The Individualized Therapy for Asthma in Toddlers study was a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, double-dummy clinical trial in children aged 12 to 59 months (n = 300) with asthma(More)
BACKGROUND Range of motion (ROM) is important for functional outcome after total knee arthroplasty (TKA); however, some patients hesitate to maximize their ROM postoperatively. The Tampa Scale of Kinesiophobia (TSK) measures patients' fear of movement. The primary purpose of this investigation was to determine whether TSK scores correlated with decreased(More)
BACKGROUND Identification of risk factors for reduced asthma control could improve the understanding and treatment of asthma. A promoter polymorphism in the 5-lipoxygenase gene affects gene expression and response to asthma therapy, but its impact on disease control remains unclear. OBJECTIVE We sought to determine if the ALOX5 promoter SP1 tandem repeat(More)
