PURPOSE Previous studies have hypothesized unequal load sharing between peripheral and core sutures in flexor tendon repairs. Most commonly peripheral sutures are placed very near the repair site and characteristically fail before the core strands. We hypothesized that placement of the peripheral sutures farther from the repair site would better optimize(More)
Mice deficient in GATA-1 or NF-E2, transcription factors required for normal megakaryocyte (MK) development, have increased numbers of MKs, reduced numbers of platelets, and a striking high bone mass phenotype. Here, we show the bone geometry, microarchitecture, biomechanical, biochemical, and mineral properties from these mutant mice. We found that the(More)
