Articular cartilage injuries do not heal and large defects result in osteoarthritis with major personal and socioeconomic costs. Osteochondral transplantation is an effective treatment for large joint defects but its use is limited by the inability to store cartilage for long periods of time....
The probiotic bacterium Lactobacillus plantarum species 299 reduces intestinal permeability in experimental biliary obstructionDownload
Aims: Extrahepatic biliary obstruction is associated with the failure of intestinal barrier function, allowing bacteria and other substances from the intestine to enter the circulation and initiate a systemic inflammatory response, causing impairment of organ function. Probiotic bacteria have...
Obesity has become a major issue for healthcare providers as its prevalence continues to increase throughout the world. The literature suggests that increased body mass index (BMI) is associated with the development of certain cancers such as colorectal cancer (CRC). Consequently, CRC surgeons...
Statistical prediction of the vitrifiability and glass stability of multi-component cryoprotective agent solutions.Download
Long-term biologic storage of articular cartilage has proven elusive due to cellular degradation over time or acute damage during attempts at cryopreservation. Vitrification is one option that may result in successful cryopreservation but difficulty with cryoprotective agent (CPA) toxicity at...
Spontaneous recovery of bilateral congenital idiopathic laryngeal paralysis: Systematic non-meta-analytical ReviewDownload
Systematic review of the literature on the natural history of bilateral congenital idiopathic laryngeal paralysis
Providone-Iodine Irrigation of Subcutaneous Tissues May Decrease Surgical Site Infections in Elective Colorectal Operations: A Systematic ReviewDownload
Background: Postoperative wound infection is the most common complication following abdominal surgery and leads to delayed wound healing, prolonged hospital length of stay (LOS), and causes morbidity. Povidone-Iodine (PVI) is a broad-spectrum anti-septic and disinfectant solution, and can be used...
Objective: Osteochondral allografting is an effective method to treat large osteochondral defects but difficulties in tissue preservation have significantly limited the application of this technique. Successful cryopreservation of articular cartilage (AC) could improve the clinical availability...
• Proprioceptive guidance assists a human operator to perform goal-directed movement by giving kinesthetic feedback. • Proprioceptive guidance enhances motor learning when visual feedback is unreliable, the task has complex kinematics, or is difficult to describe. • These characteristics are...
