Assessment of retention force and bone apposition in two differently coated femoral stems after 6 months of loading in a goat model
(BioMed Central, 2014-08-16)
Background: Since the introduction of uncemented hip implants, there has been a search for the best surface coating to enhance bone apposition in order to improve retention. The surface coating of the different stems ...

Prevalence and implications of elevated microsatellite alterations at selected tetranucleotides in cancer
(Nature Publishing Group, 2014-04-01)
Elevated microsatellite alterations at selected tetranucleotides (EMAST), a variation of microsatellite instability (MSI), has been reported in a variety of malignancies (e.g., neoplasias of the lung, head and neck, ...
Prognostic relevance of an epigenetic biomarker panel in sentinel lymph nodes from colon cancer patients
(BioMed Central, 2017-09-05)
Background: Patients with early colorectal cancer (stages I–II) generally have a good prognosis, but a subgroup of 15–20% experiences relapse and eventually die of disease. Occult metastases have been suggested ...
Molecular subtypes in stage II-III colon cancer defined by genomic instability: Early recurrence-risk associated with a high copy-number variation and loss of RUNX3 and CDKN2A
Objective: We sought to investigate various molecular subtypes defined by genomic instability that may be related to early death and recurrence in colon cancer. Methods: We sought to investigate various molecular subtypes ...
Genetic and Epigenetic Traits as Biomarkers in Colorectal Cancer
Colorectal cancer is a major health burden, and a leading cause of cancer-related deaths in industrialized countries. The steady improvements in surgery and chemotherapy have improved survival, but the ability to identify ...
Using patient-reported outcome measures for improved decision-making in patients with gastrointestinal cancer – the last clinical frontier in surgical oncology?
The genomic era has introduced concepts of “personalized medicine” and “targeted therapy” in the field of oncology. Medicine has become increasingly complex with a plethora of potential dilemmas in diagnosis, treatment, ...
Improving pancreas surgery over time: Performance factors related to transition of care and patient volume
Background: Pancreas surgery has evolved with better diagnostic imaging, changing indications, and improved patient selection. Outside high-volume tertiary centers, the documented effect of evolution in care and volumes ...
