A focus of contemporary cancer therapeutic development is the targeting of both the transformed cell and the supporting cellular microenvironment. Cell migration is a fundamental cellular behavior required for the complex interplay between multiple cell types necessary for tumor development. We therefore developed a novel retroviral-based screening(More)
This study investigates the association between preoperative hypoalbuminemia, a marker for malnutrition, and complications during the 30 days after total joint arthroplasty. Patients who underwent elective primary total hip and knee arthroplasty as part of the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program were identified.(More)
INTRODUCTION Several studies have suggested that malnutrition may be associated with periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). However, strong evidence for this association is lacking. The purpose of the present study is to ask, Is the proportion of patients with hypoalbuminemia (a proxy for malnutrition) higher among(More)
STUDY DESIGN A retrospective review of data collected prospectively by the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP). OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the association between preoperative hypoalbuminemia, a marker for malnutrition, and complications during the 30 days following posterior(More)
BACKGROUND The definitive treatment and outcome of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) caused by Enterococcus species is unknown. We performed a multi-institutional study to analyze the characteristics and treatment outcomes of patients with enterococcal PJI and to define an effective treatment protocol. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed all PJIs at 3(More)
