Authors: Kosinski LR, Gil JA, Durand WM, DeFroda SF, Owens BD, Daniels AH Abstract OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study is to identify patient characteristics that increase risk for unplanned readmission within 30 days of an initial hospital stay after outpatient rotator cuff repair (RCR). METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was performed utilizing the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS NSQIP) datasets from 2012-2015. Patients were preliminarily included in the study based on the presence of a primary Common Procedural Terminology (CPT) code for rotator cuff repair (23410, 23412, 23420, and 2...

JuergensAbstractBackgroundAirway mucus hypersecretion is the typical feature of COPD and asthma. Hypersecretion is caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and links the COPD-bronchitis phenotype to frequent exacerbations. Since the monoterpene 1,8-cineole is known for its secretolytic activity, we studied the antioxidant activity of 1,8-cineole.MethodsUsing a culture model of fetal calf serum (FCS)-stimulated human monocytes, we determined the effects of 1,8-cineole, at the...
