Ethical oversight in the form of review boards and research ethics committees provide protection for research subjects as well as guidance for safe conduct of studies. As the number of collaborative emergency care research studies carried out in…

Minimal incision surgical principals rely on the soft tissue envelope to maintain stability that is supplemented by a variety of clinically recommended fixation methods. The extended distal first metatarsal osteotomy has renewed interest because of…

Cardiogenic shock (CS) after a myocardial infarction continues to be associated with high mortality. Whether percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) of noninfarct coronary arteries (multivessel intervention [MVI]) improves outcomes in CS after …
