PURPOSE Distal biceps rupture is a relatively uncommon injury. Surgical repair is performed in patients who seek increased flexion and supination strength over that which results from nonoperative treatment. The purpose of this study was to evaluate complications associated with surgical repair of the distal biceps tendon in a large series of patients. (More)
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSC) self-renew throughout life, but the molecular mechanisms by which this process occurs and is regulated are imprecisely understood. We review the published data from overexpression and knockout studies describing genes that influence stem cell self-renewal, including transcription factors, cell cycle regulators, and genes that(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Despite an increase in the clinical use of no-profile anchored interbody cages (AIC) for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) procedures, there is little published biomechanical data describing its stabilizing effect relative to the traditional anterior plating technique over two contiguous levels. PURPOSE To biomechanically(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT No profile, integrated interbody cages are designed to act as implants for cervical spine fusion, which obviates the need for additional internal fixation, combining the functionality of an interbody device and the stabilizing benefits of an anterior cervical plate. Biomechanical data are needed to determine if integrated interbody(More)
We report the case of a 5-year-old girl who presented to the clinic with recurrent knee pain after meniscal repair and saucerization at age 3. The finding of a regenerated discoid meniscus was confirmed arthroscopically and radiographically. To our knowledge, this is the first report in the literature to confirm regeneration of a discoid meniscus after(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical outcomes of adolescent patients treated with articulated hip distraction (AHD) for avascular necrosis (AVN) of the femoral head. Outcomes were examined in order to better understand the usefulness of and indications for performing hip arthrodiastasis in this patient population. METHODS : Retrospective review was performed(More)
The often debilitating condition of hemophilic arthropathy is treated with elective total joint arthroplasty. Little has been published addressing the role of thromboembolic prophylaxis in the hemophilic patient population following total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Although the American College of Chest Physicians and the(More)
