Double-row repair of rotator cuff tears: Comparing tendon contact area between techniques.

CONCLUSION: In the technique of double-row repair, using a 3-suture anchor configuration may offer a non-inferior alternative to the standard 4-anchor construct in terms of efficacy. This may also result in overall cost reduction and shorter surgical time. PMID: 31966965 [PubMed]

This article presents her outstanding character and most important lines of research. The focus of her studies covered alkylative and oxidative damage to DNA bases, in particular mutagenic and carcinogenic properties of purines with an open imidazole ring and 8-oxo-7,8-dihydroguanine (8-oxoGua). They also included analysis of mutagenic properties and pathways for the repair of DNA adducts of lipid peroxidation (LPO) products arising in large quantities during inflammation. Professor Tudek did all of this in the hope of deciphering the mechanisms of DNA damage removal, in particular by the base excision repair (BER) pathway...

Objective: The aim of the study was to systematically review and meta-analyze the available evidence regarding the association between timing of repair or referral and clinical outcomes in bile duct injury (BDI). Background: Surgical repair is recommended for patients with complex BDI following laparoscopic cholecystectomy. However, consensus on the timing of surgery or referral to a specialist is lacking. Methods: We searched PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, and Scopus for eligible studies. The coprimary outcomes were repair failure in follow-up and postoperative complications. We pooled odds ratios (ORs) using r...

Conclusion: Right ventricular basal inferior septal and apical longitudinal strain correlates with the measures of right ventricular performance on CMR. These parameters would be useful to monitor right ventricular performance in patients after tetralogy of Fallot repair. PMID: 32077378 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Our neighbours have a man in to replace their old garden fence. He’s a friend, I had a chat with him while he was digging the holes for the new fenceposts and mentioned that our broadband and phone cables run along the boundary between the two gardens. He pointed out that he’d already noted their presence. Unfortunately, a slip of the spade and an errant clematis root led to the severing of our information artery. He was very apologetic and carried out a repair with a couple of coax connector blocks and a phone line coupler. He asked me to check our broadband, phone, and TV before he would embed the new connect...
