BACKGROUND The best fixation method for bicondylar tibial plateau fracture is debated. The aim of this study was to compare the effect of a lateral locking plate with that of dual plates in the treatment of tibial plateau fracture with a relatively intact medial condyle fragment. METHODS Eighty-six patients diagnosed with a bicondylar tibial plateau(More)
OBJECTIVE Although there are different ways to treat bicondylar tibial plateau fractures, treatment remains as a challenge to most orthopaedic surgeons. The purpose of this study was to assess the outcomes of dual buttress plates fixation in treatment of bicondylar tibial plateau fractures and to determine risk factors for outcome. METHODS Clinical data(More)
Although several studies have demonstrated good results with open reduction and internal fixation of intercon-dylar fractures of the distal humerus, few have specifically addressed the results of such surgical fixation in young adults. The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical outcomes in patients with intercondylar fractures of the distal(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of rivaroxaban and enoxaparin on hidden blood loss after total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS A retrospective analysis was made on the clinical data of 76 patients (93 hips) with avascular necrosis of the femoral head who underwent primary THA between June 2009 and January 2012. After operation, 10 mg rivaroxaban was used(More)
Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone malignancy of adolescents and young adults. Existing treatment options and surgical intervention are unable to effectively manage this tumor. Therefore, novel mechanism-based targets and strategies need to be rationally established to strive for improvement in the survival of patients diagnosed with osteosarcoma.(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) were to gather data to evaluate the efficacy and safety of topical tranexamic acid (TXA) versus intravenous (IV) TXA for blood loss after a total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS Electronic databases: Pubmed, Web of Science, Cochrane library, and(More)
To explore a novel combination of chemotherapy, gene therapy, and thermotherapy for osteosarcoma, a targeted heat-sensitive co-delivery system based on bacterial magnetosomes (BMs) was developed. The optimal culture conditions of magnetotactic bacteria (MTB) AMB-1 and characterization of BMs were achieved. A recombinant eukaryotic plasmid heat shock protein(More)
Dear Editor, We read with great interest the recent paper entitled " Prog-nostic significance of HER2 expression based on trastuzumab for gastric cancer (ToGA) criteria in gastric cancer: an updated meta-analysis " published online in Tumor Biology by Gu et al. [1]. We believe this is a well-conducted meta-analysis which enrolled only studies defining HER2(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this paper is to determine the early incidence of disc de- generation adjacent to the vertebral body of osteoporotic fracture treated with percutaneous vertebroplasty or balloon kyphoplasty and whether adjacent disc degeneration is accelerated by this two procedures. METHODS 182 patients with painful vertebral compression(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effect on blood loss after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) between rivaroxaban and enoxaparin. METHODS A retrospective analysis was made on the clinical data of 107 patients (121 knees) with osteoarthritis undergoing primary TKA between January 2010 and October 2012. According to different perioperative anticoagulants, the patients(More)
