BACKGROUND Obesity before pregnancy is associated with impaired metabolic status of the mother and the offspring later in life. These adverse effects have been attributed to epigenetic changes in utero, but little is known about the role of placental metabolism and its contribution to fetal development. OBJECTIVES We examined the impact of maternal(More)
Melanoma inhibitory activity (MIA) affects the differentiation to hyaline cartilage and can inhibit the osteogenic potential of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 in mesenchymal stem cells (MSC). The aim of this study was to investigate if MIA also inhibits the osteogenic potential of BMP-2 in human articular chondrocytes during redifferentiation, which may(More)
BACKGROUND The acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation is a major reason for shoulder instability. Different concepts of treatment and surgical methods are described in the literature. Thus, the purpose of this study was to present our data of long-term follow-up of patients having undergone treatment of acromioclavicular (AC) joint dislocation using the(More)

Fractures of the proximal humerus in children are rare and represent approximately 0.45 % of all paediatric fractures. These injuries are common in patients up to an age of 16 years. The treatment of displaced subcapital fractures is still controversially discussed in literature. Therefore the aim of this study was to evaluate the short-term outcome and to(More)
Secondary femur fracture subsequent to treatment of trochanteric fractures with cephalomedullary nailing (i.e., a periprosthetic fracture related to the cephalomedullary nail) is a rare but very severe complication. As such, the aim of this study was to assess the impact of revision surgery and general state of health on mortality and functional outcomes in(More)
