Pupil evaluation in addition to Glasgow Coma Scale components in prediction of traumatic brain injury and mortality
TLDR
This study evaluated the predictive accuracy of Glasgow Coma Scale verbal, motor and eye components alone, or in addition to pupil size and reactivity, for TBI.
Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) coordinately regulates the expression of specific matrix metalloproteinases (MMPS) and angiogenic factors during fracture healing.
TLDR
Results suggest that TNF-alpha signaling in chondrocytes controls vascularization of cartilage through the regulation of angiopoietin and VEGI factors which play counterbalancing roles in the induction of growth arrest, or apoptosis in endothelial cells.
Determination of Femoral Neck Angle and Torsion Angle Utilizing a Novel Three-Dimensional Modeling and Analytical Technology Based on CT Datasets
TLDR
Precise femoral neck and torsion angles were obtained in over one thousand cases by using automated high accuracy morphometric analysis, and small but significant gender and ethnic differences were found in femoralneck and tORSion angles.
Factors influencing the quality of life after burst fractures of the thoracolumbar transition
TLDR
It can be assumed that the injury itself seems to be the main cause of the decreased quality of life after a burst fracture of the thoracolumbar transition, and no advantage could be proved compared with the dorsally stabilized patients.
Response of primary fibroblasts and osteoblasts to plasma treated polyetheretherketone (PEEK) surfaces
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the surface treatment of PEEK with a low-temperature plasma has significant effects on the proliferation of fibroblasts and that chemically inert materials such as PEEK may be modified specifically through the methods of plasma technology in order to improve biocompatibility.
A comparative biomechanical analysis of fixation devices for unstable femoral neck fractures: the Intertan versus cannulated screws or a dynamic hip screw.
TLDR
The results suggest that (1) none of the tested devices restore a comparable mechanical strength in the fractured specimens compared with the intact femurs, and (2) the "IT" possesses some biomechanical benefits for internal fixation of unstable femoral neck fractures compared with DHS and CS.
