 Genetic Evaluation for the Scoliosis Gene(s) in Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type I and Scoliosis. Final Report
Genetic Evaluation for the Scoliosis Gene(s) in Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type I and Scoliosis. Final Report
Patients with dystrophic scoliosis often require spine fusion surgery prior to adulthood. The magnitude of the surgery is much greater, often requiring anterior and posterior spinal fusions which have greater associated morbidity. Dystrophic scoliosis is clinically challenging for surgeons, patients, and families in terms of curve monitoring and surgical decision-making., Non-Peer Reviewed Contracting Organization: University of Minnesota Prepared for: U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command Fort Detrick, Maryland US Army Medical Research and Material Command, Award W81XWH-10-1-0469 Final report
 Long-term Drug Therapy and Drug Holidays for Osteoporosis Fracture Prevention: A Systematic Review
Long-term Drug Therapy and Drug Holidays for Osteoporosis Fracture Prevention: A Systematic Review
Long-term alendronate and zoledronic acid therapies reduce fracture risk in women with osteoporosis. Long-term bisphosphonate treatment may increase risk for rare adverse events, and continuing treatment beyond 3 to 5 years may reduce risk for vertebral fractures. Long-term hormone therapy reduces hip fracture risks but has serious harms., PMID: 31009947

Bigger Data, Bigger Problems?
Clinical studies frequently lack the ability to reliably answer their research questions because of inadequate sample sizes. However, technological advancements have unlocked new possibilities for efficient data capture and widespread opportunities to merge massive datasets, particularly in the setting of national registries and administrative data., PMID: 26584266
