The present work was designed to explore the feasibility and efficacy of articular cartilage repair using composites of human umbilical cord blood derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUCB-MSCs) and four different hydrogels in a rat model. Full-thickness articular cartilage defects were created at the trochlear groove of femur in both knees of rats. Composites(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the success rate of arthroscopic debridement guided by C-reactive protein (CRP) levels for acutely infected total knee prostheses. METHODS From January 2002 to December 2009, 16 consecutive eligible patients met the following inclusion criteria: duration of symptoms less than 72 hours, previously(More)
BACKGROUND Malpositioning of the endotracheal tube within the airway leads to serious complications such as endobronchial intubation. Prediction of the correct depth of an endotracheal tube is important and should be individualized. The manubriosternal joint (MSJ) is on the same horizontal plane with the tracheal carina. We compared the straight length from(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case report. OBJECTIVES To report a rare case of complicated paraplegia caused by a spontaneous epidural hematoma following an epidural steroid injection in a patient with unrecognized chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and to review relevant literature and discuss etiology, pathogenesis, and clinical features. SUMMARY OF(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare knee kinematics during stair walking in patients with simultaneous total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKA). It was hypothesized that UKA would reproduce more normalized knee kinematics than TKA during stair ascent and descent. Six patients who received UKA in one knee and TKA in(More)
Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute vasculitis of childhood that predominantly affects the coronary arteries. We investigated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the tryptophan hydroxylase 2 (TPH2) gene as risk factors for KD with coronary artery lesions (CALs) in Korean children. We genotyped two SNPs [rs7305115 (exon 7) and rs4290270 (exon 9)] using(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to investigate and analyze bilateral incidence and morphology of complete discoid lateral meniscus (DLM) with possible relation to tears and symptoms in knee joints. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-eight consecutive patients with symptomatic or already-torn complete DLM on magnetic resonance imaging in a unilateral knee(More)
Bicompartmental knee arthroplasty features bone and ligament sparing as unicompartmental knee arthroplasty and is presumably better in the recovery of muscle strength and function compared to total knee arthroplasty (TKA) though not previously reported in the literature. The aim of the study was to compare isokinetic knee muscle strength and physical(More)
PURPOSE There is no effective treatment for patients with advanced gastric cancer having failed to respond to first line chemotherapy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the therapeutic activity, and safety, of a FEP regimen in patients with a recurrence of, or metastatic, gastric cancer that had been unresponsive to primary chemotherapy. MATERIALS AND(More)
PURPOSE Dexmedetomidine, an α2-adrenergic agonist, provides sedative and analgesic effects without significant respiratory depression. Dexmedetomidine has been suggested to have an antiapoptotic effect in response to various brain insults. We developed an oral mucosa patch using dexmedetomidine for sedation. The effects of the dexmedetomidine oral mucosa(More)
