Delivery and Attachment Systems for Repairing Reherniated Intervertebral Discs
These mechanical attachments systems can help repair discectomy patients’ reherniated intervertebral disc (IVD) post-surgery and promote natural tissue healing. Nearly 400,000 discectomies are performed each year in the US to remove herniated IVD tissue fragments. However, reherniation is the most common complication from these surgeries, which...

Hydrothermal Crystal Growth that Eliminates Spontaneous Emission
This hydrothermal approach to growing single crystal oxide hosts resolves the issues posed by amplified spontaneous emission (ASE). ASE is the result of unwanted internal reflection of photons at the lasing frequency within the laser crystal. The consequences of ASE include induced emission of ions from the excited state and unwanted internal lasing...
