BACKGROUND We investigated the efficacy of rivaroxaban, an orally active direct factor Xa inhibitor, in preventing venous thrombosis after total knee arthroplasty. METHODS In this randomized, double-blind trial, 2531 patients who were to undergo total knee arthroplasty received either oral rivaroxaban, 10 mg once daily, beginning 6 to 8 hours after(More)
➤ There are a number of potential clinical applications for growth factors in the enhancement of bone repair, including acceleration of fracture-healing, treatment of established nonunions, enhancement of primary spinal fusion or treatment of established pseudarthrosis of the spine, and as one element of a comprehensive tissueengineering strategy that could(More)
Multipotential processed lipoaspirate (PLA) cells extracted from five human infrapatellar fat pads and embedded into fibrin glue nodules, were induced into the chondrogenic phenotype using chondrogenic media. The remaining cells were placed in osteogenic media and were transfected with an adenovirus carrying the cDNA for bone morphogenetic protein-2(More)
Dabigatran, an oral once-daily unmonitored thrombin inhibitor, has been tested elsewhere using enoxaparin 40 mg once daily. We used the North American enoxaparin 30 mg BID regimen as the comparator. This was a double-blind, centrally randomized trial. Unilateral total knee arthroplasty patients were randomized to receive oral dabigatran etexilate 220 or 150(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this investigation was to expand on previous studies by more fully examining the role of a variety of patient and hospital characteristics in determining adverse outcomes following total knee replacement. METHODS With use of data from all hospital admissions in California from 1991 through 2001, multiple logistic regression was(More)
BACKGROUND Post-arthroplasty infections represent a devastating complication of total joint replacement surgery, resulting in multiple reoperations, prolonged antibiotic use, extended disability and worse clinical outcomes. As the number of arthroplasties in the U.S. will exceed 3.8 million surgeries per year by 2030, the number of post-arthroplasty(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to compare the cost-effectiveness of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty as an alternative to total knee arthroplasty in patients with degenerative arthritis limited to either the medial or lateral compartment. METHODS A decision model was created for the treatment of end-stage unicompartmental knee arthritis. A(More)
UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of BMPs on the formation of metastatic prostate cancer lesions to bone. Our results show that BMPs influence the development and progression of osteoblastic lesions and suggest that therapies that inhibit BMP activity may reduce the formation and progression of osteoblastic lesions.

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head is a progressive condition that often leads to collapse of the femoral head. The ultimate goal in the treatment for osteonecrosis of the hip is preservation of the femoral head. However, the condition is difficult to treat because it is associated with a number of different diseases, and the etiology and natural history of(More)
