Effects of Capsular Reconstruction With an Iliotibial Band Allograft on Distractive Stability of the Hip Joint: A Biomechanical Study.

Am J Sports Med 2018 12 1;46(14):3429-3436. Epub 2018 Nov 1.

Steadman Philippon Research Institute, Vail, Colorado, USA.

Background: The capsular ligaments and the labral suction seal cooperatively manage distractive stability of the hip. Capsular reconstruction using an iliotibial band (ITB) allograft aims to address capsular insufficiency and iatrogenic instability. However, the extent to which this procedure may restore hip distractive stability after a capsular defect is unknown. Read More

Comparison of mucosal impedance measurements throughout the esophagus and mucosal eosinophil counts in endoscopic biopsy specimens in eosinophilic esophagitis.

Gastrointest Endosc 2019 04 24;89(4):693-700.e1. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

Background And Aims: Assessing eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) activity from limited esophageal mucosal biopsy samples has been questioned. Here our aim was to compare mucosal impedance (MI) throughout the esophagus and eosinophil counts in endoscopic biopsy samples in EoE.

Methods: We compared 20-site MI using a balloon catheter in the esophagus and eosinophils per high-power field (eos/HPF) in esophageal mucosal biopsy samples. Read More

Seasonal Incidence of Emergent Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting Surgery.

Heart Surg Forum 2016 Mar 31;19(2):E048-53. Epub 2016 Mar 31.

East Carolina Heart Institute, Department of Cardiovascular Sciences, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC.

Background: Emergent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery is often required in the case of severe coronary artery disease, which is refractory to traditional management. The objective of our study was to test the hypothesis that there is seasonal variation in the incidence of emergent CABG.

Methods: A sinusoidal logistic regression model was used to analyze operative data at our cardiovascular institute of 270 cases spanning 5939 calendar days. Read More

Prostatic arterial embolization to treat benign prostatic hyperplasia.

J Vasc Interv Radiol 2011 Jan;22(1):11-9; quiz 20

Department of Radiology, Faculty of Medical Sciences, New University of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal.

Purpose: To evaluate whether prostatic arterial embolization (PAE) might be a feasible procedure to treat lower urinary tract symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Materials And Methods: Fifteen patients (age range, 62-82 years; mean age, 74.1 y) with symptomatic BPH after failure of medical treatment were selected for PAE with nonspherical 200-μm polyvinyl alcohol particles. Read More

Effect of calcium channel blockers on vertebral bone marrow perfusion of the lumbar spine.

Radiology 2004 Apr 27;231(1):24-30. Epub 2004 Feb 27.

Department of Radiology and Internal Medicine, National Taiwan University, Medical College and Hospital, 7 Chung-Shan S Rd, Taipei 100, Taiwan.

Purpose: To investigate the effect of calcium channel blockers on blood perfusion of vertebral bone marrow in the lumbar spine.

Materials And Methods: Sixteen healthy volunteers (eight men and eight women) underwent dynamic contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the lumbar spine. One hundred twenty minutes after the first MR examination, each subject ingested 10 mg sublingual nifedipine before undergoing a second MR examination 20-25 minutes later. Read More

Prevalence of deep venous reflux in patients with primary superficial vein incompetence.

J Vasc Surg 2000 Oct;32(4):663-8

Division of Vascular Surgery, Loyola University Medical Center, Maywood, IL 60153-3304, USA.

Purpose: This prospective study was designed to determine the prevalence of deep reflux and the conditions under which it may occur in patients with primary superficial venous reflux and absence of deep venous thrombosis (DVT).

Methods: We studied 152 limbs in 120 consecutive patients in the standing position who had superficial venous reflux with color flow duplex scanning. Limbs with documented evidence of DVT or post-thrombotic vein wall changes during the examination were studied but not included in the analysis. Read More

Comparison of the effects of captopril and nicardipine on insulin sensitivity and thrombotic profile in patients with hypertension and android obesity. CaptISM Study Group. Captopril Insulin Sensitivity Multicenter Study Group.

Am J Hypertens 1994 Aug;7(8):731-8

Hôpital de la Timone, Marseille, France.

Hypertension is often related to metabolic disorders, such as android obesity, glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, and hyperinsulinism (X syndrome). Insulin resistance (IR), described as the common link among these disorders, could contribute to an increase in coronary risk. The euglycemic insulin clamp technique has been used to show that different classes of antihypertensive agents have different effects on IR. Read More
