Purpose: The objective of this study was to examine the effect of altering the capitolunate relationship on coronal-plane wrist motion after scaphoidectomy and simulated 4-corner arthrodesis. Two positions of different capitolunate alignments were compared: "anatomic" (unchanged from pre-fusion) and "lunate-covered" (capitate translated to cover t...
A calcium phosphate - hydroxyapatite (HA) bone cement was loaded with varying concentrations of tobramycin and vancomycin and the elution properties of these antibiotics were evaluated. Nine groups of antibiotic loaded cement cylinders (N = 6 in each group) were prepared and placed in saline for 28 days. Elution rates of tobramycin and vancomycin f...
To describe the incidence of reoperation and the demographic factors that may be associated with reoperation after flexor tendon repair. Using a New York statewide hospital administrative database covering an 8-year period, we examined unique patient discharges with an index procedure of flexor tendon repair for reoperation (re-repair or tenolysis)...
Although outcomes after flexor tendon repair have reportedly improved with modern treatment, complications are common. The purpose of this study was to determine the incidence of these complications and the potential contributory factors within the published literature. We performed a systematic review of the available literature to identify public...
IL-6 is a pleiotropic cytokine involved in cell signaling in the musculoskeletal system, but its role in bone healing remains uncertain. The purpose of this study was to examine the role of IL-6 in fracture healing. Eight-week-old male C57BL/6 and IL-6 -/- mice were subjected to transverse, mid-diaphyseal osteotomies on the right femora. Sacrifice...
