The purpose of this study was to compare the outcomes of arthroscopic transtibial single-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using autologous patellar tendon and hamstring tendon grafts. From 1998 to 2007, 59 patients with symptomatic isolated posterior cruciate ligament injury were included in this retrospective study. Twenty-five knees were(More)
OBJECTIVE Perfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFCs) have been used worldwide in a variety of consumer products. The effect of PFCs on glucose homeostasis is not known. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We examined 474 adolescents and 969 adults with reliable serum measures of metabolic syndrome profile from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2000(More)
Atomically thin molybdenum disulfide (MoS(2)) layers have attracted great interest due to their direct-gap property and potential applications in optoelectronics and energy harvesting. Meanwhile, they are extremely bendable, promising for applications in flexible electronics. However, the synthetic approach to obtain large-area MoS(2) atomic thin layers is(More)
Open reduction and internal fixation has been the gold standard for displaced fracture involving weightbearing dome and fractures with intra-articular fragments. However, extensile exposure can lead to complications. Fracture with minimal displacement can be fixed by a minimally invasive method. Percutaneous screwing for an anterior column fracture of(More)
The two-dimensional layer of molybdenum disulfide (MoS(2)) has recently attracted much interest due to its direct-gap property and potential applications in optoelectronics and energy harvesting. However, the synthetic approach to obtain high-quality and large-area MoS(2) atomic thin layers is still rare. Here we report that the high-temperature annealing(More)
The authors have examined the effects of coaching sensory self-monitoring and reporting on pain-related variables in patients with lung cancer. Randomly assigned to coached or not-coached groups, 215 patients have their interactions with their providers audiotaped and complete study measures pre- and postintervention. Of the 151 patients who complete the(More)
Digital video's increased popularity has been driven to a large extent by a urry of recently proposed international standards (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.263, etc.). In order to transmit compressed videos over a communication channel, it is required to control the compression in the encoder such that the output data rate can be t within the channel constraints. The(More)
Minimally invasive surgery has recently been introduced for foot and ankle surgery, and hallux valgus surgery is no exception. The purpose of our study was to analyze the early results and to present our experience of minimally invasive distal metatarsal osteotomy in correcting mild-to-moderate hallux valgus deformities. Between September 2005 and December(More)
The management of bicondylar tibial plateau fractures is challenging. A lateral locking plate offers an alternative method to traditional dual plating to avoid further stripping of soft tissue. Nevertheless, the rate of malreduction and fixation loss remains high. From 2007 to 2009, we performed open reduction and fixation with unilateral locked plating to(More)
