BACKGROUND: Approximately 33% of the patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) who undergo surgery are not satisfied with their postoperative clinical outcomes. Therefore, identifying predictors for postoperative outcome and groups of patients who will benefit from the surgical intervention is of significant clinical benefit. However, many of the studied predictors to date suffer from subjective recall bias, lack fine digital measures, and yield poor correlation to outcomes. METHODS: This study utilized smart-shoes to capture gait parameters extracted preoperatively during a 10 m self-paced walking test, which was hypothesized to provide objective, digital measurements regarding the level of gait impairment caused by LSS symptoms, with the goal of predicting postoperative outcomes in a cohort of LSS patients who received lumbar decompression and/or fusion surgery...

There is a potential mismatch between surgical mesh implants for hernia repair of pelvic floor surgery and the host tissue because soft tissue is incompressible and meshes are compressible. Therefore, mesh and tissue may develop different stiffness over the range of deformation. In addition compressibility is related to a change of porosity of the mesh which may decrease during the deformation. Scar formation and the ingrowth of the mesh can be related to effective porosity which decreases discontinuously in uniaxial loading at a critical stretch when pore areas collapse and therefore the mesh becomes ineffective...

The outcome of peripheral bypass surgery in patients at risk of limb loss is largely influenced by the anatomical integrity of the plantar arch (PA). For this reason, in the last few decades, this area has been considered to be a sensitive territory, rarely approached surgically, and virtually untouchable by any endovascular activities. This hesitance was related to the possible damage to the thin dorsalis pedis (DP), deep plantar, and lateral plantar arteries, together with the crucial metatarsal and digital branches arising from the arch...
