Mast cells are known for their roles in allergy, asthma, systemic anaphylaxis, and inflammatory disease. IL-10 can regulate inflammatory responses and may serve as a natural regulator of mast cell function. We examined the effects of IL-10 on in vitro-cultured mouse and human mast cells, and evaluated the effects of IL-10 on FcepsilonRI in vivo using mouse(More)
It is estimated that in the United States, there are approximately 100,000 primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions performed yearly. Despite a success rate of 92-98%, ACL reconstruction is not without potential complications, including post-operative infection [1]. Reports of septic arthritis after ACL reconstruction are rare in the(More)
In this Technical Note, we describe a method of mini-open long head biceps subpectoral tenodesis. The implant used is a threadless expanding PEEK (polyether ether ketone) interference device that fixes the biceps tendon in a drill hole in the humerus under the inferior border of the pectoralis major tendon. The diameter of the drill hole varies between 6(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic osteomyelitis is a disease that requires fastidious treatment to eliminate. However, when eradication is unable to be achieved through exhaustive modalities of antibiotic therapy and multiple debridements, significant resection of the infected bone and soft tissue must be considered, including amputation. Here we report of a salvage(More)
Patellar tendon rupture is a rare, but major event that often requires surgical repair in order to reestablish function of the extensor mechanism of the knee. Rupture of the tendon usually occurs in the 3rd or 4th decade of life and results from slip and fall accidents, or powerful contraction of the quadriceps such as during sporting events or weight(More)
