An effort to prevent PJI has led to the development of antimicrobial dressings that support wound healing. We sought to determine whether Aquacel Surgical dressing independently reduces the rate of acute PJI following TJA. A single institution retrospective chart review of 903 consecutive cases who received the Aquacel Surgical dressing and 875 consecutive(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in China and worldwide. Whole grain oats can reduce risk of CVD by reducing total and LDL-cholesterol, major risk factors for CVD. While this association has been established in many populations, data from Asian populations is limited. Thus, this study investigated the impact of oat(More)
In a two-year carcinogenicity study with administration of high doses of the partial nicotinic agonist varenicline (recently approved for smoking cessation), mediastinal hibernomas occurred in three male rats. To investigate potential mechanisms for partial and full nicotinic agonists to contribute to development of hibernomas, the effects of nicotine on(More)
BACKGROUND Some manufacturers have introduced polyethylene (PE) inserts in 1-mm increment thickness options to allow for finer adjustments in total knee arthroplasty kinematics. METHODS Two surgeons with extensive experience performed 88 total knee arthroplasties using implants with 1-mm PE inserts. After trial components were inserted and the optimal PE(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of colorectal cancer (CRC) in the adolescent and young adult (AYA) population (aged 15-39 y) is rising. MATERIALS AND METHODS We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Database to study CRC in the AYA population. We studied clinical and socioeconomic factors associated with survival. RESULTS Of the 11,071 cases of(More)
INTRODUCTION We reviewed the clinical and radiographic outcomes of a consecutive series of patients who underwent patellofemoral arthroplasty (PFA) using a modern onlay-style trochlear design and all-polyethylene patellar component. An additional goal of the study was to elucidate, for the first time, the extent to which patients were satisfied with their(More)
The damage to the environment caused by an oil spill of any size demands immediate cleanup. This project studied the ability of different porous materials to absorb oil, particularly sol-gels, polypropylene, and cotton. Each material was placed in tap water, mineral or paraffin oil, and a water-oil mixture. After soaking for one day, the material’s uptake(More)
Inhibition of thymidylate synthase (TS) results in a transient "flare" in DNA thymidine salvage pathway activity measurable with FLT ([18F]thymidine)-positron emission tomography (PET). Here we characterize this imaging strategy for potential clinical translation in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Since pemetrexed acts by inhibiting TS, we defined the(More)
BACKGROUND Surgeons frequently obtain intraoperative cultures at the time of revision total joint arthroplasty. The use of broth or liquid medium before applying the sample to the agar medium may be associated with contamination and false-positive cultures; however, the degree to which this is the case is not known. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We (1) calculated(More)
