OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of Norian SRS bone cement injected percutaneously into a distal radius following reduction in both preventing loss of reduction as well as safety. DESIGN The study was a prospective clinical study with an established protocol. SETTING The study was conducted at the Massachusetts General… (More)
Engaging and maintaining student engagement with the content of a course in formal language theory and the theory of computation is notoriously difficult. A major factor is student's perception of the relevance of the required mathematical material to computer science as they have studied the discipline. Usually, the mathematical material discourages… (More)
This article develops a perspective for studying conversational behavior in geriatric institutions. The discussion first considers why conversation is a theoretically significant focus for communications researchers concerned with the aged, and then the article presents data from ethnographic studies of two nursing facilities. Symbolic interactionism… (More)
This paper describes a study of the required mathematical support for the computing program at Southwest Baptist University. A list of requisite mathematical concepts identified in four core courses is presented. Additionally, the results of a survey of required mathematics support courses for eighty-four small colleges and universities offering computing… (More)
A perspective for studying institutional procedures for assigning incoming patients to available wards, and for transferring patients between and among wards, is developed. Ethnographic data collected in one extended-care facility are presented. Staff-patient and patient-patient interactions surrounding ward assignments and transfers are discussed.
PURPOSE To histologically evaluate biopsy specimens from patients who previously underwent rotator cuff repair augmented with a highly porous collagen implant. METHODS Biopsies of collagen implant/host-tissue constructs were obtained from 7 patients undergoing a second arthroscopic procedure at various time periods (5 weeks to 6 months) after arthroscopic… (More)
