All-epiphyseal anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction yields superior sports performances than the trans-epiphyseal technique in skeletally immature patients: a systematic review (2024)
Journal Article

Background: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in skeletally immature patients are increasingly common. Evidence comparing the outcomes of all-epiphyseal versus trans-epiphyseal ACL reconstruction in skeletally immature patients is limited, and t...

The asymmetric role of temperature deviations in economic growth: Fresh evidence from global countries and panel quantile estimates (2024)
Journal Article

AbstractThis work explores the role of weather shocks, measured as temperature deviations from their normal, in affecting GDP growth through a panel of 148 countries, spanning the period 1960–2019 and a panel quantile approach. The findings show that... Read More about The asymmetric role of temperature deviations in economic growth: Fresh evidence from global countries and panel quantile estimates.

The pandemic is gone but its consequences are here to stay: avascular necrosis following corticosteroids administration for severe COVID-19 (2024)
Journal Article

Background: In patients with COVID-19 infection and respiratory insufficiency, corticosteroid (CCS) administration is recommended. Among the wide range of complications and interactions, time-limited high-dose CCS administration might promote avascul...

Endoscopic peroneus brevis tendon transfer for chronic ruptures of the Achilles tendon: surgical technique (2024)
Journal Article

Chronic Achilles tendon rupture is usually defined as a rupture diagnosed 4–6 weeks after injury. The management of chronic Achilles tendon rupture (CATR) is a topic of hot debate, and no consensus has been achieved. Surgical management of CATR is re...

Chilean midwives' experiences while providing induced abortion care after the enactment of a law decriminalising abortion. (2024)
Journal Article

The recent change in Chilean legislation towards abortion enabled midwives to include the care of women having an induced abortion within their scope of practice. However, midwives' identity could be strained by induced abortion care provision as it...

Understanding how therapeutic exercise prescription changes outcomes important to patients with persistent non-specific low back pain: a realist review protocol (2024)
Journal Article

Introduction: Persistent low back pain (LBP) is the leading cause of disability worldwide, and therapeutic exercise is recommended as a first-line treatment in international guidelines. The effects of exercise on clinical outcomes of pain and physica...

Identifying prior signals of bipolar disorder using primary care electronic health records: a nested case-control study. (2024)
Journal Article

Bipolar disorders are serious mental illnesses, yet evidence suggests that the diagnosis and treatment of bipolar disorder can be delayed by around 6 years. To identify signals of undiagnosed bipolar disorder using routinely collected electronic heal...

Anti-CRISPR Anopheles mosquitoes inhibit gene drive spread under challenging behavioural conditions in large cages (2024)
Journal Article

CRISPR-based gene drives have the potential to spread within populations and are considered as promising vector control tools. A doublesex-targeting gene drive was able to suppress laboratory Anopheles mosquito populations in small and large cages, a...

Heparanase inhibition as a systemic approach to protect the endothelial glycocalyx and prevent microvascular complications in diabetes (2024)
Journal Article

Background: Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease which is detrimental to cardiovascular health, often leading to secondary microvascular complications, with huge global health implications. Therapeutic interventions that can be applied to multiple...
