Our results revealed an increased rate of poor radiographic outcomes in patients with disrupted medial calcar.
Osteonecrosis of the humeral head and redisplacement were the two radiographic outcomes which had a positive causality with disruption of medial calcar ( and 0.050, resp.).
The objectives of the study were to examine how medial calcar support (MCS) affects the radiographic outcomes and to determine the prognostic factors predicting treatment failure.
61% reported using CAM for health in their lifetime, and 36% reported using CAM within a month of the survey.
The most frequent CAM modalities reported in ones’ lifetime and in the last month were mind-body practices (42% and 27%, resp.).
We surveyed 89 adult patients (response rate 84%) at an outpatient hemodialysis center in Brookline, MA, USA regarding the utilization of CAM, including mind-body practices, and willingness to learn mind-body practices.
Of respondents, 47% were female, 63% were black, and mean age was 62 years.
