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 ...
Submission policy, peer-review and editorial board members: interesting conflicts and conflicts of interest
(BioMed Central, 2010-10-26)
The Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine welcomes an ever-increasing number of submissions while maintaining an acceptance level well below half of all submitted manuscripts, meaning that ...
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, ...
What Is the Best Predictor of Mortality in Perforated Peptic Ulcer Disease? A Population-Based, Multivariable Regression Analysis Including Three Clinical Scoring Systems
Background Mortality rates in perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) have remained unchanged. The aim of this study was to compare known clinical factors and three scoring systems (American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), Boey ...
Open access publishing: a girder in the success of the Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine.
(BioMed Central, 2011-01-19)
The Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine (SJTREM) has entered its third year as an independent, open access international scientific on-line journal. SJTREM converted into open access (OA) ...
Determining universal processes related to best outcome in emergency abdominal surgery: A multicentre, international, prospective cohort study
Introduction: Emergency abdominal surgery outcomes represent an internationally important marker of healthcare quality and capacity. In this study, a novel approach to investigating global surgical outcomes is proposed, ...
Can bone apposition predict the retention force of a femoral stem? An experimental weight-bearing hip-implant model in goats
(BioMed Central, 2015-04-28)
Background: The increasing incidence of prosthesis revision surgery in the Western world has led to an increased focus on the capacity for stem removal. We previously reported on a femoral stem implanted in goats with ...
Predicting outcomes in patients with perforated gastroduodenal ulcers: artificial neural network modelling indicates a highly complex disease
Purpose Mortality prediction models for patients with perforated peptic ulcer (PPU) have not yielded consistent or highly accurate results. Given the complex nature of this disease, which has many non-linear associations ...
