Acellular Dermal Matrix in Cleft Palate Repair: An Evidence-Based Review
TLDR
It is implied that acellular dermal matrix may have a potential benefit in reducing fistula formation/persistence in palate surgery, but sufficient prospective randomized (level II or better) evidence is found to recommend the routine use of a Cellular Dermal matrix for cleft palate repair. Expand
Thoracoscopic repair of tracheoesophageal fistulas: a case-control matched study.
TLDR
Thoracoscopic repair of TEF is safe and comparable with conventional open repair with no differences between TR and COR groups with regard to weight and gestational age. Expand

A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Examining the Differences Between Nonsurgical Management and Percutaneous Fixation of Minimally and Nondisplaced Scaphoid Fractures.
TLDR
Percutaneous fixation of acute undisplaced scaphoid fractures has union rates comparable with those of nonsurgical cast immobilization but with faster RTW and time to union without a significant difference in complication rate. Expand
