In an ongoing Microbial Observatory investigation of the International Space Station (ISS), 11 Bacillus strains (2 from the Kibo Japanese experimental module, 4 from the U.S. segment, and 5 from the Russian module) were isolated and their whole genomes were sequenced. A comparative analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequences of these isolates showed the highest similarity (>99%) to the Bacillus anthracis-B. cereus-B. thuringiensis group. The fatty acid composition, polar lipid profile, peptidoglycan type, and matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight profiles were consistent with the B...

PURPOSE: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a congenital deformity which in severe cases leads to hip dislocation and in milder cases to premature osteoarthritis. Image-aided diagnosis of DDH is partly based on Graf classification which quantifies the acetabular shape seen at two-dimensional ultrasound (2DUS), which leads to high inter-scan variance. 3D ultrasound (3DUS) is a promising alternative for more reliable DDH diagnosis. However, manual quantification of acetabular shape from 3DUS is cumbersome...

The incidence of clinically significant avascular necrosis (AVN) following medial open reduction of the dislocated hip in children with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) remains unknown. We performed a systematic review of the literature to identify all clinical studies reporting the results of medial open reduction surgery. A total of 14 papers reporting 734 hips met the inclusion criteria. The mean follow-up was 10.9 years (2 to 28). The rate of clinically significant AVN (types 2 to 4) was 20% (149/734)...

INTRODUCTION: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) can result in chronic pain, gait abnormalities and degenerative arthritis. Infants with a family history, Breech delivery or unstable/"clicking" of the hip on examination are at higher risk. The goal is to detect cases early enough for normal hip development and function by the end of adolescence, but clinical examination alone is ineffective. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All infants born at the West Middlesex University Hospital, Isle-worth, U...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a serious anatomical abnormality. The aims of the study were to compare the current views on general screening for DDH and, in a group of patients diagnosed for DDH both clinically and ultrasonographically, to analyse the results of their treatment with Wagner stockings. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In the years 2000 to 2001, a total of 3,221 children were examined at birth clinically and by ultrasonography using Graf's method...

OBJECTIVE: To document the quality of life of children who have been treated for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) within the first 3 years of life successfully after a minimum follow-up period of 2 years, and compare their results with healthy age-matched children. METHODS: Thirty patients with DDH treated between 1998 and 2002 in Ankara Numune Education and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey and 19 age-matched healthy controls were included in this study with the approval of the ethical committee...

A colorimetric DNA-DNA hybridization for the genetic identification of mycobacteria, DDH MYCOBACTERIA 'KYOKUTO' (Kyokuto Pharmaceuticals, Tokyo) was evaluated for the clinical isolates of mycobacteria grown in Middlebrook 7H9 broth of MB/BacT (Organon Teknika, Durham, NC, U.S.A.). When the MB/BacT gave the positive interpretation, 10 ml of Middlebrook 7H9 broth was collected from the bottle. After centrifugation at 3,000 rpm for 10 min, two drops of acetone were added to the pellet, then let it stand for one hour at the room temperature...

AIM OF STUDY: To assess the effectiveness of a universal sonographic screening of developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) established in Germany since 1996. METHODS: Currently a national survey is being performed in Germany to identify infants and young children who receive inpatient treatment for DDH. Between May, 1997 and October, 1997 monthly questionnaires were sent to all pediatric orthopaedic surgeons (active surveillance) and they were asked to report all inpatient cases between 10 weeks of age and 5 years with current closed or open reduction and/or osteotomies due to DDH...
