  Title Injuries in developing countries--how can we help? The role of orthopaedic surgeons Type Journal Article
  Year 2008 Publication Clinical Orthopaedics and Related Research Abbreviated Journal Clin Orthop Relat Res  
  Volume 466 Issue 10 Pages 2443-2450  
  Keywords Bone Nails/economics; Databases, Factual; *Developing Countries/economics; Education, Medical; *Fracture Fixation, Intramedullary/economics/education/instrumentation; Fractures, Bone/*surgery; Health Services Accessibility; Healthcare Disparities; Humans; *International Cooperation; Musculoskeletal System/*injuries; *Organizations, Nonprofit; *Physician's Role; Poverty; Program Development; Prosthesis Design  
  Abstract Each year nearly 5 million people worldwide die from injuries, approximately the number of deaths caused by HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Ninety percent of these injuries occur in developing countries and that number is growing. Road traffic accidents account for 1.2 million of these 5 million deaths. For each death from trauma, three to eight more are permanently disabled. Orthopaedic surgeons should consider the victims of this epidemic by using their ability and capacity to treat these injuries. SIGN (Surgical Implant Generation Network, Richland, WA, USA) builds local surgical capability in developing countries by providing training and equipment to surgeons for use in treating the poor. It assists in treating long-bone fractures by using an intramedullary nail interlocking screw system. C-arm imaging, unavailable in many of these hospitals, is not necessary to accomplish interlocking. Surgery is performed primarily by local surgeons who record their cases on the SIGN surgical database. Discussion of these reports provides a means of communication and education among surgeons. This database demonstrates the capability of these surgeons. It also demonstrates that the SIGN intramedullary nail is safe for use in the developing world as it has been successful in treating 36,000 trauma patients.

  Title Does previous hip arthroscopy negatively influence the short term clinical result of total hip replacement? Type Journal Article
  Year 2011 Publication Archives of Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery Abbreviated Journal Arch Orthop Trauma Surg  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords  
  Abstract INTRODUCTION: The risk that hip preserving surgery may negatively influence the performance and outcome of subsequent total hip replacement (THR) remains a concern. The aim of this study was to identify any negative impact of previous hip arthroscopy on THR. METHODS: Out of 1271 consecutive patients who underwent primary THR between 2005 and 2009, 18 had previously undergone ipsilateral hip arthroscopy. This study group (STG) was compared with two control groups (CG, same approach, identical implants; MCG, paired group matched for age, BMI and Charnley categories). Operative time, blood loss, evidence of heterotopic bone and implant loosening at follow-up were compared between the STG and the MCG. Follow-up WOMAC were compared between the three groups. RESULTS: Blood loss was not found to be significantly different between the STG and MCG. The operative time was significantly less (p < 0.001) in the STG. There was no significant difference in follow-up WOMAC between the groups. No implant related complications were noted in follow-up radiographs. Two minor complications were documented for the STG and three for the MCG. CONCLUSION: We have found no evidence that previous hip arthroscopy negatively influences the performance or short-term clinical outcome of THR.

  Title The rise and decline of prospective memory performance across the lifespan Type Journal Article
  Year 2006 Publication The Quarterly Journal of Experimental Psychology Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 59 Issue 12 Pages 2040-2046  
  Keywords prospective memory performance; lifespan; event-based prospective memory; retrospective components; age differences; Cognitive Development; Life Span; Memory  
  Abstract In the present study, the trajectory of prospective memory across the lifespan was investigated in a total of 200 participants from five age groups (4- to 6-year-old children, 13- to 14-year-old adolescents, 19- to 26-year-old adults, 55- to 65-year-old adults, and 65- to 75-year-old adults). In an event-based prospective memory task the prospective and the retrospective components were assessed separately. For the prospective component, the results showed better performance for adolescents and young adults than for children and 65- to 75-year-old adults. In addition, participants belonging to the latter group were more likely to forget the retrospective component after having noticed the prospective memory targets. Overall, these results indicate that across the lifespan prospective memory performance follows a similar inverted u-shape function as is well known for retrospective episodic memory.
