    • Are component positioning and prosthesis size associated with hip resurfacing failure? 

      Johnson, AJ; Marker, DR; Mont, MA; Seyler, Thorsten M; Zywiel, MG (BMC Musculoskelet Disord, 2010-10-02)
      BACKGROUND: Recent studies suggest that there is a learning curve for metal-on-metal hip resurfacing. The purpose of this study was to assess whether implant positioning changed with surgeon experience and whether positioning ...
    • B cells in rheumatoid synovitis. 

      Goronzy, JJ; Seyler, Thorsten M; Weyand, CM (Arthritis Res Ther, 2005)
      In rheumatoid arthritis, T cells, B cells, macrophages, and dendritic cells invade the synovial membranes, establishing complex microstructures that promote inflammatory/tissue destructive lesions. B cell involvement has ...
    • Botulinum toxin type A injections for the management of muscle tightness following total hip arthroplasty: a case series. 

      Bhave, A; Delanois, RE; Marker, DR; McGrath, MS; Mont, MA; Seyler, Thorsten M; Ulrich, SD; ... (8 authors) (J Orthop Surg Res, 2009-08-26)
      BACKGROUND: Development of hip adductor, tensor fascia lata, and rectus femoris muscle contractures following total hip arthroplasties are quite common, with some patients failing to improve despite treatment with a variety ...
    • Does commitment to rehabilitation influence clinical outcome of total hip resurfacing arthroplasty? 

      Bhave, A; Marker, DR; Mont, MA; Seyler, Thorsten M; Zywiel, MG (J Orthop Surg Res, 2010-03-22)
      BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether compliance and rehabilitative efforts were predictors of early clinical outcome of total hip resurfacing arthroplasty. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey was utilized ...
    • Fractures in myelomeningocele. 

      Abel, R; Akbar, M; Bresch, B; Bruckner, T; Carstens, C; Fürstenberg, CH; Raiss, P; ... (8 authors) (J Orthop Traumatol, 2010-09)
      BACKGROUND: In patients with myelomeningocele (MMC), a high number of fractures occur in the paralyzed extremities, affecting mobility and independence. The aims of this retrospective cross-sectional study are to determine ...
    • Imaging of musculoskeletal bacterial infections by [124I]FIAU-PET/CT. 

      Agrawal, N; Bettegowda, C; Cheong, I; Conway, J; Diaz, LA; Endres, CJ; Foss, CA; ... (20 authors) (PLoS One, 2007-10-10)
      BACKGROUND: Traditional imaging techniques for the localization and monitoring of bacterial infections, although reasonably sensitive, suffer from a lack of specificity. This is particularly true for musculoskeletal infections. ...
    • Mid-term results and factors affecting outcome of a metal-backed unicompartmental knee design: a case series. 

      Bonutti, PM; Lai, LP; Marker, DR; Mont, MA; Seyler, Thorsten M; Xie, J; Zywiel, MG (J Orthop Surg Res, 2009-10-26)
      BACKGROUND: Controversies exist regarding the indications for unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. The objective of this study is to report the mid-term results and examine predictors of failure in a metal-backed unicompartmental ...
    • Risk of dislocation using large- vs. small-diameter femoral heads in total hip arthroplasty. 

      Akbar, M; Issa, K; Mont, MA; Plate, JF; Seyler, Thorsten M; Stroh, DA (BMC Res Notes, 2012-10-05)
      BACKGROUND: Dislocation remains a difficult problem in total hip arthroplasty. Large-diameter femoral heads may lower the incidence of dislocation by enhancing the jump distance and decreasing impingement, but their performance ...
