After a successful business career, he retired in Colorado to pursue two passions: downhill skiing and high-performance driving. Referred to by family and friends as “Lee,” he turned 78 last spring.

Authors: Cichos KH, Lehtonen EJ, McGwin G, Ponce BA, Ghanem ES Abstract INTRODUCTION: Orthopaedic surgeons are wary of patients with neuromuscular (NM) diseases as a result of perceived poor outcomes and lack of data regarding complication risks. We determined the prevalence of patients with NM disease undergoing total joint arthroplasty (TJA) and characterized its relationship with in-hospital complications, prolonged length of stay, and total charges. METHODS: Data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample from 2005 to 2014 was used for this retrospective cohort study to identify 8,028,435 discharges with total jo...

ConclusionsUsing real‐world data, we obtained up‐to‐date prevalence, treatment status and medical cost information for MS in Japan. The present results showed the efficacy of a real‐world database to obtain the latest national trends for rare diseases, such as MS; this could have important implications for clinicians and policymakers. Comparison of the medical costs per patient per month (PPPM, upper) and per member per month (PMPM, below) of multiple sclerosis with those of similar immune or neurodegenerative diseases in Japan. Although the cost PPPM for MS was higher than the costs for Parkinson's disease and rh...

AbstractPurposeThe aim of this study was to develop a Korean version of the Stigma Scale for Chronic Illness 8-items (SSCI-8) and then assess its reliability and construct validity among patients with neurological conditions.MethodPatients diagnosed with stroke, Parkinson ’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis were recruited. Reliability was assessed for internal consistency with Cronbach’s alpha coefficient. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) was used to extract potential factors of Korean SSCI-8. Convergent validity was assessed by correlating scores on t...
