MiMedx accounting firm quits

The troubles at MiMedx (NSDQ:MDXG) continued last week with the resignation of the accounting firm tapped to audit its books in the wake of a financial scandal. Marietta, Ga.-based MiMedx last July ousted ex-CEO Parker Petit and president &COO William Taylor amid a board-directed independent investigation that had already prompted the departure of CFO Michael Senken and treasurer John Cranston in June. At the time, MiMedx said it would restate all of its earnings reports going back to 2012 and was cooperating with U.S. Securities &Exchange Commission and Justice Dept. investigations into the matter. The company later said that all four executives’ departures were for cause, triggering the forfeit of all equity and incentive awards for the executives and Petit’s resignation from the board. Petit and Taylor denied the allegations in a statement from their lawyer. Last week MiMedx, which makes regenerative and therapeutic biologics using human placental tissue allografts, said the company hired by its board’s audit committee resigned Dec. 4 after determining that it can’t rely on the company’s internal financial controls or the representations from the former executives and their interim replacements. “EY advised the company that the internal controls necessary for the company to develop reliable financial statements do not exist,” MiMedx said in a Dec. 7 regulatory filing. “Although EY co...

cia J Abstract BACKGROUND: Previous studies suggest that transbronchial lung biopsy using a cryoprobe is superior to transbronchial lung biopsy using forceps for evaluating lung grafts; however, the technique can be associated an increase in complications. Since cryoprobe experience is limited, assessment of a greater number of cases is warranted. This prospective study evaluates the diagnostic yield, complications and risk factors associated with the cryoprobe technique. METHODS: From April 2013 to April 2016, 321 consecutive cryoprobe transbronchial biopsies were indicated in single or bilateral lung transp...

Authors: Tabassum A, Wismeijer D, Hogervorst J, Tahmaseb A Abstract PURPOSE: Autogenous bone grafts are considered a "gold standard." The success of autografts mainly depends on their ability to promote an osteogenic response. The aim of this study was to collect autogenous bone during implant osteotomy preparation using two different drilling protocols and to evaluate and compare the proliferation and differentiation ability of the collected bone particles. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Autogenous bone particles were harvested from 20 patients during implant osteotomy preparation using two different drillin...

CONCLUSIONS The graft height makes an important difference on the stress on the adjacent segment and the graft segment after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. A 150% graft height was considered the proper graft height in C4/C5 ACDF, with the lowest stress on the adjacent segment and the graft segment. PMID: 31163019 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionsTo our knowledge, this is the first report of spondylodiscitis caused byAspergillus terreus after an abdominal penetrating injury. The histological finding of chronic suppurative osteomyelitis and the radiological findings strongly suggested direct inoculation ofAspergillus terreus.

Rationale: Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) is often complicated with chronic renal failure. Though the total parathyroidectomy (TPTX) with forearm autotransplantation (FAT) has been commonly used to treatment refractory renal SHPT, the recurrence of SHPT is not infrequent, resulting from hyperplastic autograft, remnant parathyroid tissues, and supernumerary parathyroid gland (SPG). Patient concerns: A 67-year-old man undergoing TPTX+FAT 4 years previously for renal SHPT, who received regular hemodialysis with active vitamin D supplements of Rocaltrol treatment postoperatively, was admitted to our hospital with pr...

Background: Face transplant teams have an ethical responsibility to restore the donor's likeness after allograft procurement. This has been achieved with masks constructed from facial impressions and three-dimensional printing. The authors compare the accuracy of conventional impression and three-dimensional printing technology. Methods: For three subjects, a three-dimensionally–printed mask was created using advanced three-dimensional imaging and PolyJet technology. Three silicone masks were made using an impression technique; a mold requiring direct contact with each subject's face was reinforced by plaster ba...

ConclusionsA significant superiority of BSP-coated scaffolds over uncoated scaffolds could not be proven. However, BSP-coating showed a tendency towards improving bone ingrowth in the scaffolds 4 weeks after implantation. This effect was only short-lived: bone growth in the control scaffolds tended to outpace that of the BSP-group at week eight.

Authors: Shi Y, Chen L, Xu Y, Zhang X, Ju X, Hu X, Ao Y, Wang J Abstract Acetabular labral tears are common in patients presenting with hip or groin pain. When the labrum is irreparable, labral reconstruction procedures are warranted. A circumferentially intact labrum is essential for joint health, whereas labral deficiency may predispose hip joints to osteoarthritis (OA). We aimed to determine whether labral reconstruction provides a benefit in terms of reduced OA development compared with labral resection. We performed labral reconstructions, labral resections, and sham operations in a porcine model. We assessed ...

ute;kány R Abstract Bone graft substitutes and bone void fillers are predominantly used to treat bone defects and bone fusion in orthopaedic surgery. Some aragonite-based scaffolds of coralline exoskeleton origin exhibit osteoconductive properties and are described as useful bone repair scaffolds. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the in vitro osteogenic potential of the bone phase of a novel aragonite-based bi-phasic osteochondral scaffold (Agili-C™, CartiHeal Ltd.) using adult human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Analyses were performed at several time intervals: 3, 7, 14...
