Is It Necessary to Tie the Medial Row in Rotator Cuff Repair Double-Row Constructs when using Suture Tape?
ConclusionThere was no statistically significant different between knotless versus knotted medial row double row rotator cuff repair constructs using suture tape in regard to displacement across the repair site, stiffness and ultimate load to failure. Despite previous evidence suggesting inferiority of knotless medial row technique using suture constructs, this evidence may support the biomechanical equivalency of knotless medial row technique using suture tape.
CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that MTC is a more immunologically active tumor that has been previously reported. Patients with advanced MTC should be screened for targetable antigens and immune checkpoints to determine their eligibility for current clinical trials. Additional studies are necessary to fully characterize the antigenic potential of MTC and may encourage the development of adoptive T cells therapies for this rare tumor.

The influence of the α/β ratio on treatment time iso-effect relationships in the central nervous system. Int J Radiat Biol. 2020 Apr 03;:1-25 Authors: Jones B, Klinge T, Hopewell JW Abstract Purpose: To investigate the influence of changes in α/β ratio (range 1.5-3 Gy) on iso-effective doses, with varying treatment time, in spinal cord and central nervous system tissues with comparable radio-sensitivity. It is important to establish if an α/β ratio of 2 Gy, the accepted norm for neuro-oncology iso-effect estimations, can be used.Methods: The rat spinal cor...

This study delves into the mechanisms by which a short period of fasting can accelerate wound healing. Fasting triggers many of the same cellular stress responses, such as upregulated autophagy, as occur during the practice of calorie restriction. It isn't exactly the same, however, so it is always worth asking whether any specific biochemistry observed in either case does in fact occur in both situations. In particular, the period of refeeding following fasting appears to have beneficial effects that are distinct from those that occur while food is restricted. Multiple forms of therapeutic fasting have been repor...

I don't want to get too into it, I wouldn't call this like a "full" wamc or whatever but i have no clue on how to make a list with my stats about the author: 3.41 sgpa, cgpa 3.39. i would like to do gpa repair but due to many reasons its just not financially feasible. grad from jhu so hopefully explains the gpa a little bit?? but still obviously bad, and im hoping my mcat trend sells this idea that im better than i used to be. mcats 502->511->526. nontangibles: ok volunteering (like 300... low gpa, high retake, where to apply?

Abstract Repair of injured tissues requires angiogenesis, the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones. Cutaneous wound healing is a complex and dynamic process by which skin tissue repairs itself after injury; however, how endothelial cells and pericytes form new blood vessels during cutaneous wound angiogenesis remains unclear. We recently developed a fluorescence-based live imaging system to analyze cutaneous wound angiogenesis in adult zebrafish. Employing this system, we found that endothelial cells and pericytes remain in a quiescent state in normal skin tissue, whereas cutaneous injury immediately...
