JOT Releases Orthopaedic Residency Program Rankings by Research Output

What's the best way to rate the quality and quantity of research produced by orthopaedic surgery residency programs? A new "research impact ranking" provides a more objective approach to assessing and comparing research productivity at US orthopaedic departments, according to a study in the November Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma (JOT), published by Wolters Kluwer.

Tiny Antibiotic Beads Fight Infections After Joint Replacement

More than 1 million people undergo total joint replacements each year, and nearly 10,000 will develop infections. To reduce this infection risk, a Houston Methodist orthopedic surgeon created small antibiotic beads that are implanted with the new joint to slowly release medicine for several weeks.

Cross-Disciplinary Program Improves Surgical Outcomes for Older Patients

Compared to younger adults, older people have higher rates of complications from surgery. But many problems can be avoided by intervening with assessments and risk-reduction strategies before, during and after procedures.

UC Davis Researcher Urges Caution on Engineered Stem Cells

Murphy-17.jpg

In a commentary published in the Jan. 4 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine, UC Davis researcher William Murphy expressed cautious optimism about efforts to genetically engineer hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) to temporarily resist cell death during transplantation. While these gene therapy approaches could dramatically improve patient outcomes, Murphy argues that their risks must be carefully studied in diverse models.

If you struggle with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism, you probably wear glasses or contact lenses to help you to see. This can be frustrating, especially if you misplace your glasses or lose a contact lens. You’ve probably heard of LASIK eye surgery and may be wondering if the procedure is right for you.
