    Title Hemiarthroplasty for the Rotator Cuff-deficient Shoulder.
    Date March 2008
    Journal The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. American Volume

    BACKGROUND: Hemiarthroplasty is a common treatment for cuff tear arthropathy and glenohumeral arthritis associated with a massive tear of the rotator cuff; however, to our knowledge, long-term outcomes and preoperative factors affecting results have not been reported. METHODS: Thirty-four shoulders in thirty-one patients with cuff tear arthropathy or a massive rotator cuff tear with glenohumeral arthritis underwent hemiarthroplasty at an average age of seventy-two years. Outcomes in all patients were evaluated by direct physical examination and according to the limited goals criteria of Neer et al. at a mean of 3.7 years postoperatively. In twenty-five shoulders, long-term outcomes were measured with use of the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) scoring system and follow-up data were obtained at a mean of ten years (range, four to sixteen years) postoperatively. RESULTS: Twenty-six of thirty-four shoulders satisfied the limited goals criteria described by Neer et al. The mean active forward elevation improved from 78 degrees preoperatively to 111 degrees postoperatively (p < 0.001). The mean active external rotation improved from 15 degrees preoperatively to 38 degrees postoperatively (p < 0.0001). One patient with a history of four failed rotator cuff repairs had anterosuperior instability develop after surgery. The mean final total ASES score was 67 points (range, 35 to 100 points). Of the sixteen shoulders in patients who could actively elevate the arm to >or=90 degrees preoperatively, fourteen achieved satisfactory results according to the limited goals criteria of Neer et al. Patients who could actively elevate the arm to 90 degrees had significantly better function (mean ASES function score, 31 compared with 23 points; p = 0.05), pain relief (mean ASES pain score, 48 compared with 30 points; p = 0.002), and higher total ASES scores (mean, 80 compared with 54 points; p < 0.001) than the patients who were unable to actively elevate the arm to 90 degrees . CONCLUSIONS: Hemiarthroplasty can provide good long-term results in rotator cuff-deficient patients with glenohumeral arthritis. Patients who have preoperative forward elevation of >or=90 degrees benefit the most. A low complication rate can be expected for this procedure.

    Title Shoulder Impingement Revisited: Advanced Concepts of Pathomechanics and Treatment.
    Date December 2006
    Journal Instructional Course Lectures

    Subacromial impingement is a common disorder of the shoulder that is still poorly understood. Knowledge of the pathogenesis of this condition has expanded greatly since it was described by Neer 40 years ago. Research has shown that multiple factors contribute to the development of rotator cuff disease. New investigations are exploring this disorder with input from several scientific disciplines. It is essential that orthopaedic surgeons treating patients with subacromial impingement understand the underlying mechanisms, the new research, and the current trends in management of this disease.

    Title Engraftment After Myeloablative Doses of 131i-metaiodobenzylguanidine Followed by Autologous Bone Marrow Transplantation for Treatment of Refractory Neuroblastoma.
    Date May 1998
    Journal Medical and Pediatric Oncology

    BACKGROUND: Metaiodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) labeled with 131I has been used for targeted radiotherapy of neural crest tumors, with bone marrow suppression being the primary dose-limiting toxicity. The purpose of this study was to examine the engraftment and toxicity of higher myeloablative doses of 131I-MIBG with autologous bone marrow support. PROCEDURE: Twelve patients with refractory neuroblastoma were given infusions of their autologous, cryopreserved bone marrow following 1-4 doses of 131I-MIBG. The median cumulative administered activity per kilogram of 131I-MIBG was 18.0 mCi/kg (range 14.1-50.2 mCi/kg), the median total activity was 594 mCi (range 195-1,353 mCi), and the median cumulative whole body irradiation from 131I-MIBG was 426 cGy (range 256-800 cGy). A median of 2.5 x 10(8) viable cells/kg (range 0.9-4.7 x 10(8) cells/kg) was given in the bone marrow infusion. RESULTS: All 12 patients achieved an absolute neutrophil count > 500/microliter with a median of 19 days, but only 5/11 evaluable patients achieved red cell transfusion independence, in a median of 44 days; and 4/11 evaluable patients achieved platelet count > 20,000/microliter without transfusion, in a median of 27 days. CONCLUSIONS: Autologous bone marrow transplantation may allow complete hematopoietic reconstitution following ablative 131I-MIBG radiotherapy in patients with neuroblastoma. Risk factors for lack of red cell or platelet recovery include extensive prior chemotherapy, progressive disease at the time of transplant, especially in the bone marrow, and a history of prior myeloablative therapy with stem cell support.

    Title Role of Trypanosoma Cruzi Lipopolysaccharide on Human Granulocyte Biological Activities.
    Date January 1993
    Journal Memórias Do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz
    Title Evaluating the Fairness of Special Education Hearings.
    Date August 1991
    Journal Exceptional Children

    The U.S. Congress mandated due process hearings in special education disputes to ensure parental involvement in educational decision making and to promote individual justice. The present study explored two kinds of justice, defined as objective and subjective fairness, and examined parent and school officials' subjective experience of the fairness of their hearings. Findings indicate that hearings are not achieving subjective fairness. Neither school officials nor parents felt positively about the experience. Supplements to hearings, such as mediation and negotiation, should be studied to see if they are more effective vehicles for achieving congressional intent and for avoiding costly and emotionally draining hearings.

    Title Enzyme Variation Among Clones of Trypanosoma Cruzi.
    Date April 1983
    Journal The Journal of Parasitology

    The genetic relationships within and between stocks of Trypanosoma cruzi were studied by the in vitro isolation of clones and sub-clones and by the comparison of their isoenzyme patterns in thin-layer starch-gel electrophoresis. Altogether 13 clones and 36 sub-clones were isolated from stocks CL89 and Y207 of T. cruzi. Employing the enzymes L-alanine aminotransferase (ALAT), L-aspartate aminotransferase (ASAT), glucose phosphate isomerase (GPI), malic enzyme (ME), malate dehydrogenase (MDH), glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase (6PGD), and phosphoglucomutase (PGM), two zymodemes, B and C, emerged among the clones with distinct banding patterns. These zymodemes were consistently distinguished by ALAT, ASAT, GPI, G6PD, 6PGD, and PGM and the differences in enzyme profiles were simultaneously reflected in all six enzyme systems. That the enzymic characters as genetic determinants are stable was demonstrated after recloning and successive replica-platings, i.e., the distinct enzyme patterns remained consistent and homogeneous, the siblings retained the enzyme profiles of their parental clones, and no segregation of the enzyme patterns was observed. Our data from clone and sub-clone examinations show that the isoenzymes act as labels to characterize T. cruzi stocks. Furthermore, enzyme variation was demonstrated among clones isolated from stock CL89.
