In this note, we describe an arthroscopic repair of a degenerative tear of the triceps using a suture weave and an anatomic footprint anchor. We are able to assess, debride, and anatomically repair the distal triceps to its insertion. Compared with open procedures, this arthroscopic repair offers lower morbidity, faster recovery, and improved cosmesis. Our goal was to improve the function and strength of the elbow through this arthroscopic surgical fixation.

Patients with rotator cuff tears may present with or subsequently develop concomitant shoulder stiffness. The treatment of rotator cuff tears in the face of passive glenohumeral motion loss is controversial. Preoperative shoulder stiffness has been considered by some a contraindication to rotator cuff repair. Some surgeons recommend staging surgical procedures and delaying rotator cuff repair until shoulder stiffness has resolved. However, this can lead to prolonged recovery times and patient dissatisfaction...

BACKGROUND: Fumonisin B1 (FB1) is a mycotoxin produced by several Fusarium species and a very common contaminant of maize-based food and feed throughout the world. The selection and use of FB1-degrading microorganisms appears as a promising alternative to cope with the problem of toxicity towards humans and livestock. High moisture maize grain silage which is based on natural maize fermentation could be an interesting reservoir of such microorganisms. RESULTS: Using an in vitro simulated silage model with FB1 naturally contaminated grains, we demonstrated a significant raw decrease in FB1 during ensiling process ascribed to biodegradation mechanisms...

An Ir-catalyzed enantioselective hydrogenation of 2-alkyl-pyridines has been developed using ligand MeO-BoQPhos. High levels of enantioselectivities up to 93:7 er were obtained. The resulting enantioenriched piperidines can be readily converted into biologically interesting molecules such as the fused tricyclic structures 5, 6, and 7 in 99:1 er, providing a novel, concise synthetic route to this family of chiral piperidine-containing compounds.

Duramycin, through binding with phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), has been shown to be a selective molecular probe for the targeting and imaging of cancer cells. Photodynamic therapy aims to bring about specific cytotoxic damage to tumours through delivery of a photosensitising agent and light irradiation. Conjugation to biological molecules that specifically target cancer has been shown to increase photosensitiser (PS) selectivity and decrease damage to surrounding normal tissue. The aim of this study was to target tumour cells with a PE-specific PS therefore duramycin was conjugated to a porphyrin based PS which was achieved via direct reaction with the ε-amino group on the lysine residue near duramycin's N-terminal...

BACKGROUND: Little data exist regarding the effects of prophylactic perioperative protocol on reducing surgical site infections. Based on national efforts to prevent SSIs and current evidence in the literature supporting the importance of perioperative prophylaxis, it would seem logical that expanding upon current perioperative protocol would help prevent SSIs. HYPOTHESIS: Multiple variables present risk factors in the development of SSIs in the perioperative period, and optimization of patient management during this time with a series of non-invasive and inexpensive protocols may help prevent SSIs...

BACKGROUND: Postabdominal intestinal surgery (PAIS) infants pose many complex management issues. Utilization of feeding guidelines has been shown to improve outcomes in preterm and low-birth-weight infants. We propose that standardization of feeding for PAIS infants is safe. METHODS: We identified 163 PAIS infants: 93 prior to and 70 after implementation of a feeding guideline. The primary outcome was time to full enteral nutrition (EN). A propensity score-matched analysis was performed...

This study designs photodetectors that operate in the broadband regime upon bottom illumination (from ITO side) and in the narrowband regime upon top illumination (from air/perovskite side). The narrowband photodetectors show high external quantum efficiency of above 10(4) %. The operational spectrum of photodetectors can also be tuned by adjusting the halide composition in the active material.

Although previous studies involving allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) without in vivo T cell depletion by rabbit antithymocyte globulin (ATG) have reported a substantial survival difference between D-R- and D+R- patients, but little to no survival difference between D-R+ and D+R+ patients (D, donor; R, recipient; +, cytomegalovirus [CMV] seropositive; -, CMV seronegative), whether this applies to HCT using ATG is unknown. We studied 928 patients who underwent myeloablative HCT for hematologic malignancies in Alberta between 1999 and 2014 who received graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) prophylaxis using ATG (Thymoglobulin, 4...

Bursting, an irreversible failure in tube hydroforming (THF), results mainly from the local plastic instabilities that occur when the biaxial stresses imparted during the process exceed the forming limit strains of the material. To predict the burst pressure, Oyan's and Brozzo's decoupled ductile fracture criteria (DFC) were implemented as user material models in a dynamic nonlinear commercial 3D finite-element (FE) software, ls-dyna. THF of a round to V-shape was selected as a generic representative of an aerospace component for the FE simulations and experimental trials...
