BACKGROUND Proximal femoral deformities and overcorrection of the acetabulum both can result in secondary femoroacetabular impingement and suboptimal clinical results after periacetabular osteotomy. The purpose of the present study was to determine the rate of complications, the need for reoperations, radiographic correction, and hip function among patients(More)
ATP-sensitive potassium (K(+)(ATP)) channels regulate cell excitability and are expressed in steroid-responsive brain regions involved in sexual behavior, such as the preoptic area (POA) and medial basal hypothalamus (MBH). We hypothesized that K(+)(ATP) channels serve as a mechanism by which testosterone can control the electrical activity of neurons and(More)
BACKGROUND Total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) results in superior clinical outcomes to hemiarthroplasty (HA); however, TSA is a more technical and invasive procedure. This study retrospectively compares perioperative complications after HA and TSA using the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database. METHODS The NSQIP user file was(More)
BACKGROUND Little data are available to prioritize quality improvement initiatives in shoulder surgery. PURPOSE To stratify the risk for 30-day postoperative morbidity in commonly performed surgical procedures about the shoulder completed in a hospital setting and to determine patient factors associated with major complications.
