OBJECTIVE Nonadherence to medications is a leading cause of morbidity in children and adolescents who have had a transplant, yet there are no published data about the use of different methods for detecting whether these children are taking their medications. There are also no published data about the age of transition at which a child assumes responsibility(More)
There has been a tremendous focus on gynecologic health with the increasing number of women with congenital heart disease (CHD). Conversely, experience in providing sexual health screening to men with CHD is lacking. The purpose of this study was to identify sexual health issues in men with CHD.

Survival of patients presenting with acute liver failure (ALF) has improved because of earlier disease recognition, better understanding of pathophysiology of various insults leading to ALF, and advances in supportive measures including a team approach, better ICU care, and liver transplantation. This article focuses on patient management and evaluation(More)
It is possible to achieve better results after liver transplantation in adult and pediatric patients. An approach driven by multidisciplinary protocol is the most important factor, along with excellent communication skills, technical expertise, application of new technologies such as MARS and Arctic-Sun for ALF, and new knowledge/treatment protocols such as(More)
There is conflicting evidence whether custom instrumentation for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) improves component position compared to standard instrumentation. Studies have relied on long-limb radiographs limited to two-dimensional (2D) analysis and subjected to rotational inaccuracy. We used postoperative computed tomography (CT) to evaluate preoperative(More)
The Pediatric End-Stage Liver Disease (PELD) scoring system is a new nationally utilized formula developed to provide a continuous numerical assessment of the risk of death in order to allocate livers to children for transplantation. A retrospective review of the clinical course of children undergoing liver transplantation at the Mount Sinai Medical Center(More)
Living donor liver transplantation is an acceptable alternative for many patients awaiting a liver transplant. The benefits of living donor liver transplantation to the recipient are many; however, there is also an appreciable risk to the donor. Many people, including healthcare professionals, believe that living donor liver transplantation is not ethically(More)
Saline-cooled bipolar radiofrequency technology has emerged as an effective method to reduce bleeding during total knee arthroplasty (TKA). No significant osseous complications have been previously reported, and animal studies have revealed no difference in bone healing, strength, or osteonecrosis compared to conventional monopolar electrocautery. This(More)
OBJECTIVE Over the past decade, our institution has instituted three different scheduling models in an attempt to care for pediatric trauma at our Level I Trauma Center. This has been in response to a number of factors, including a limited number of physicians covering the call schedule, increasing competition for operating room (OR) time after hours(More)
