An academic teaching portfolio is not only a requirement at many academic teaching institutions, but it is also important in a medical educator's growth and development through documentation, reflection, evaluation, and change. Creating an academic portfolio may appear daunting at first but with careful advanced preparation, organized evidence collection of your educational work, proof of scholarship, and thorough documentation of self-reflection and change, you can produce a successful product that accurat...
Expert's comment concerning Grand Rounds case entitled "Thoracic osteotomy for Gorham-Stout disease of the spine: a case report and literature review" by C. Maillot et al., Eur Spine J: doi 10.1007/s00586-014-3613-3.
Letter to the Editor concerning "The utility of magnetic resonance imaging in addition to computed tomography scans in the evaluation of cervical spine injuries: a study of obtunded blunt trauma patients" by B.P.H. Lau, et al. Eur Spine J (2017); doi:10.1007/s00586-017-5317-y.
Bacterial cell division requires identification of the division site, assembly of the division machinery, and constriction of the cell envelope. These processes are regulated in response to several cellular and environmental signals. Here, we use small molecule iron chelators to characterize the surprising connections between bacterial iron homeostasis and cell division. We demonstrate that iron starvation downregulates the transcription of genes encoding proteins involved in cell division, reduces protein ...
Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease and death in the United States; nearly all tobacco use begins during youth and young adulthood (1,2). Among youths, use of tobacco products in any form is unsafe (1,3). CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) analyzed data from the 2011-2016 National Youth Tobacco Surveys (NYTS) to determine recent patterns of current (past 30-day) use of seven tobacco product types among U.S. middle (grades 6-8) and high (grades 9-12) school students. In 2016, ...
Letter to the Editor concerning "Ribosomal PCR assay of excised intervertebral discs from patients undergoing single-level primary lumbar microdiscectomy.'' by Alamin TF, Munoz M, Zagel A, et al.: Eur Spine J 2017.
Answer to the Letter to the Editor of L. Denteneer et al. concerning "Do we have the right PROMs for measuring outcomes in lumbar spinal surgery?" by O.M. Stokes et al., Eur Spine J (2017) 26:816-824.
Pulmonary vessels have numerous variation and aberrant branching patterns. Mediastinal lingular artery (MLA), the most common aberrant branch, might contribute to greater blood flow to lingular division. Hence, we investigated a correlation between lingular division volume and MLA using three-dimensional CT volumetry. We included 199 consecutive patients who underwent surveillance chest CT to detect possible malignancies in April 2015. We measured lingular division volume and cross-sectional area of lingula...
Implicit solvent models divide solvation free energies into polar and nonpolar additive contributions, whereas polar and nonpolar interactions are inseparable and nonadditive. We present a feature functional theory (FFT) framework to break this ad hoc division. The essential ideas of FFT are as follows: (i) representability assumption: there exists a microscopic feature vector that can uniquely characterize and distinguish one molecule from another; (ii) feature-function relationship assumption: the macrosc...
A retrospective cohort study from the Kaiser Permanente Spine Registry OBJECTIVE.: Determine whether obese and extremely obese patients with lumbar spine fusions lost a clinically significant amount of weight (> 5%) 1 year after their surgery SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA.: Obesity in the United States has a prevalence of 35% and is a global health issue. Obesity is associated with lumbar spine disease. There is limited evidence regarding post-surgical weight loss after spine surgery.
Cervical spine malalignment can develop as a consequence of degenerative disc disease or following spinal surgery. When normal sagittal alignment of the spine is disrupted, further degeneration may occur adjacent to the deformity. The purpose of this study was to investigate changes in lordosis and sagittal alignment in the cervical spine after insertion of supraphysiologic lordotic implants.
Authors have recently proposed the concept of "hip-spine syndrome," however there exists limited evidence available to differentiate whether these concomitant arthritides are due to anatomic/structural causes, or systemic/metabolic effects. Exploring this relationship has important implications during the evaluation and treatment of both spine and hip disorders-a common clinical presentation of many patients. The purpose of this experiment was to investigate the individual contribution of hip arthritis towa...
Cervical spine injuries are common and range from relatively minor injuries, such as cervical muscle strains, to severe, life-threatening cervical fractures with spinal cord injuries. Although cervical spine injuries are most common in athletes who participate in contact and collision sports, such as rugby and American football, they also have been reported in athletes who participate in noncontact sports, such as baseball, gymnastics, and diving. Cervical spine injuries in athletes are not necessarily the ...
Current assessment of spine growth for patients undergoing growth friendly surgical treatment for early-onset scoliosis (EOS) is the use of serial, 1-dimensional standard-of-care coronal vertical spine height (SoCVH) measurements. Any growth of the spine out of the coronal plane is missed by the SoCVH, which may underestimate the actual growth of the spine. This study set to validate the novel 3-dimensional true spine length (3DTSL) radiographic measurement technique for measuring growth of EOS patients.
Expert's comment concerning Grand Rounds case entitled "Tailor made management of thoracic scoliosis with cervical hyperextension in muscular dystrophy" by A. Angelliaume et al. (Eur Spine J; 2017: doi:10.1007/s00586-017-5113-8).
Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) has been widely adopted as a fusion adjunct in spine surgery since its approval in 2002. A number of concerns regarding adverse effects and potentially devastating complications of rhBMP-2 use led to an FDA advisory issued in 2008 cautioning its use, and a separate warning about its potential complications was published by The Spine Journal in 2011.
Retrospective comparative analysis of data collected prospectively in an adult spine deformity (ASD) multicenter database.
The importance of surgeon volume as a quality measure has been defined for a number of surgical specialties. Meaningful procedural volume benchmarks have not been established, however, particularly with respect to lumbar spine surgery.
History of prior cervical spine surgery is a frequently cited cause of worse outcomes following cervical spine surgery. The purpose of this study was to determine any differences in clinical outcomes following cervical spine surgery between patients with and without history of prior cervical spine surgery.
Although spine surgery is associated with significant morbidity, the anesthesia liability profile for spine surgery is not known. We examined claims for spine procedures in the Anesthesia Closed Claims Project database to evaluate patterns of injury and liability.
Expert's comment concerning Grand Rounds case entitled "Circumferential fusion for degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis complicated by distal junctional grade 4 spondylolisthesis in the sub-acute post-operative setting" by Alexander A. Theologis et al. (Eur Spine J; 2017. doi:10.1007/s00586-017-4976-z).
Unprecedented three-dimensional heterocycles are introduced, and their scaffold functionalization is described. A robust synthetic method utilizing cheap commercially available starting materials leads to a wide range of products on gram scale. The product portfolio can be expanded by applying newly devised building blocks with relevance for automated parallel synthesis in cross-coupling reactions.
