Cross-sectional internal diameter measurements were made of right and left common carotid and right femoral arteries and right and left internal jugular, superficial femoral, and common femoral veins in 32 normal human subjects utilizing duplex ultrasonography. The relationships of these vessel sizes to the subject's sex, age, height, weight, and body(More)
Lung neoplasms commonly develop in patients previously treated for head and neck carcinomas. The derivation of these tumors, either as new primary lung cancers or as metastatic head and neck cancers, is difficult to establish based on clinical or histopathologic criteria since both are squamous cell carcinomas and have identical features under light(More)
PURPOSE Gene expression profiling has been shown to be a valuable tool for prognostication and identification of cancer-associated genes in human malignancies. We aimed to identify potential prognostic marker(s) in non-small cell lung cancers using global gene expression profiles. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Twenty-one previously untreated patients with non-small(More)
The High-Activity Arthroplasty Score (HAAS) was specifically developed to assess subtle variations in functional ability after lower limb arthroplasty with particular regard to highly functioning individuals. The score was a 4-item self-assessment measure covering the 4 domains of walking, running, stair climbing, and general activities, with a possible(More)
BACKGROUND Lower limb allotransplantation is garnering increasing attention in the vascularized composite allotransplantation community as a potential treatment modality for those suffering from lower limb amputations. Little is known, however, about the level of interest among lower limb amputees regarding this procedure. METHODS An online survey(More)
BACKGROUND Overexpression of squamous cell carcinoma-related oncogene (SCCRO) is associated with invasive progression and poor outcomes in non-small cell lung cancer. We assessed the role of SCCRO as a tumor marker in bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC), a subtype of adenocarcinoma exhibiting evidence of histologic tumor progression. We hypothesized that(More)
Femoral component rotation is very important in avoiding complications and maximizing knee function following total knee arthroplasty. There is continuing debate over the most accurate axis to select intraoperatively to obtain the best results. There is considerable doubt over the ability of commonly used bony landmarks to produce a line parallel to the(More)
Originally identified as an oncogene activated by amplification in squamous cell carcinomas, several lines of evidence now suggest that squamous cell carcinoma-related oncogene (SCCRO; aka DCUN1D1) may play a role in the pathogenesis of a wide range of human cancers including gliomas. SCCRO's oncogenic function is substantiated by its ectopic expression,(More)
BACKGROUND Unequal access to hospital specialists for emergency care is an issue in the United States. The authors sought to describe the geographic distribution of specialist hand surgeons and associated factors in the United States. METHODS Geographic distributions of surgeons holding a Subspecialty Certificate in Surgery of the Hand and hand surgery(More)
