The authors developed a novel technique for the reconstruction of large segmental long bone defects using a cylindrical titanium mesh cage (CTMC). Although the initial clinical reports have been favorable, the CTMC technique has yet to be validated in a clinically relevant large animal model, which is the purpose of this study. Under general anesthesia, a(More)
PURPOSE Percutaneous epiphysiodesis using transphyseal screws (PETS) was developed as a minimally invasive outpatient procedure to address limb-length discrepancy (LLD) that allowed immediate postoperative weight bearing and was potentially reversible by removing the screws. The aims of our study were to report our results using PETS for LLD and evaluate(More)
Magnesite is the most desirable phase within the magnesium carbonate family for carbon storage for a number of reasons: magnesium efficiency, omission of additional crystal waters and thermodynamic stability. For large-scale carbonation to be a viable industrial process, magnesite precipitation must be made to occur rapidly and reliably. Unfortunately, the(More)
Although MALDI-TOFMS is widely used in routine clinical microbiology laboratories, it is generally acknowledged that the standard method of sample-matrix preparation, homogeneous deposition on the target plate, is not really suitable for successful MALDI-TOF measurement or for microbial identification [5]. MALDI-TOFMS instruments have introduced manual(More)
Bone tumours, either primary or secondary, can present in various debilitating manners, including pain and pathological fracture. The situation is particularly problematic when the tumours are hypervascular, and located in regions where a high risk of neurological compromise is anticipated during operation, such as in the spine or sacrum. In such(More)
