Nine projective linear measurements were taken to determine morphometric differences of the face among healthy young adult Chinese, Vietnamese, and Thais (60 in each group) and to assess the validity of six neoclassical facial canons in these populations. In addition, the findings in the Asian ethnic groups were compared to the data of 60 North American(More)
LEARNING OBJECTIVES After studying this article, the participant should: 1. Have a variety of options for thumb reconstruction. 2. Know the advantages and disadvantages of the nonmicrosurgical and microsurgical techniques for thumb reconstruction. 3. Understand the decision making from the variety of thumb reconstruction techniques based on patient needs.(More)
Wait or queuing time is a principal performance measure for many discrete-event simulation (DES) models in healthcare. However, variation in wait time is often caused by both occupied downstream servers (e.g., beds) and organizational and human transition processes. DES models that attribute wait solely to occupied servers, ignoring transition process(More)
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease and a major cause of pain and disability in older adults. We have previously identified epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling as an important regulator of cartilage matrix degradation during epiphyseal cartilage development. To study its function in OA progression, we performed surgical(More)
Skeletal reconstruction after large tumor resection is challenging. The free vascularized fibular graft (FVFG) offers the potential for rapid autograft incorporation as well as growing physeal transfer in pediatric patients. We retrospectively reviewed eleven pediatric patients treated with FVFG reconstructions of the upper extremity after tumor resection.(More)
Large skeletal and soft tissue defects about the forearm present one of the most challenging problems for both orthopaedic and plastic surgeons. Reconstruction with free vascularized fibula grafts has been used in these situations with great success. It is our experience that the creation of a one-bone forearm with an osteocutaneous vascularized free fibula(More)
