As coordinate values are determined, we wish to add them to an array and apply an interpolation procedure to the new coordinate values of the array. That is, as the sequence is being increased, it will be interpolated by a cubic fit. We will exhibit two procedures which limit the cubic construction to be one segment behind the last segment of the sequence.… (More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study is to present a novel approach for the treatment of severe, chronic knee joint pain following total knee arthroplasty utilizing peripheral subcutaneous field stimulation and discuss the role of this treatment modality in patients with symptoms that are refractory to conventional pharmacologic, surgical, and physical… (More)
Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) can achieve excellent clinical and functional results for patients having single-compartment osteoarthritis. However, UKA is considered to be technically challenging to perform, and malalignment of implant components significantly contributes to UKA failures. It has been shown that surgical navigation and tactile… (More)
Data on stage, grade and morphology of 12,761 colorectal cancers registered between 1995 and 2003 by Oxford Cancer Registry are reviewed. Dukes stage is recorded for 81% of colon cancers and for 69% of rectal cancers. Incomplete registry data and changing recording practices may affect future evaluation of bowel cancer screening.
Rotational tibiofemoral congruency and centralized patellar tracking are critical technical factors that affect the postoperative success of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Several techniques are used to position the femoral component, but there is no validated method for achieving the ideal rotational position of the tibial component. It has been suggested… (More)
Although total knee arthroplasty has a high success rate, poor outcomes and early revision are associated with ligament imbalance. This multicenter evaluation was performed in order to provide 1-year followup of a previously reported group of patients who had sensor-assisted TKA, comparing the clinical outcomes of quantitatively balanced versus unbalanced… (More)

Minocycline modulates neuropathic pain behaviour and cortical M1-M2 microglial gene expression in a rat model of depression. Abstract There is a paucity of data on the role of microglia and… (More)
The goal of this phase I study was to develop a novel schedule using oral etoposide and infusional topotecan as a continually alternating schedule with potentially optimal reciprocal induction of the nontarget topoisomerase. The initial etoposide dose was 15 mg m(-2) b.i.d. days (D)1-5 weeks 1,3,5,7,9 and 11, escalated 5 mg per dose per dose level (DL).… (More)
