EFetchPlugin

This plugin allows the user to display the abstract for a given PubMed ID. This is accomplished by either displaying the desired information on the current page or by displaying a link to the desired information on PubMed. The plugin utilizes EFetch, provided by Entrez. For more information, visit Entrez programming utilities.

Syntax Rules

  • There is one way to display the abstract for a given PubMed ID. In the example "number" is the desired PubMed ID.
    1. %PMID{number}%
  • There are three methods for calling the EFetchPlugin plugin to display a link to PubMed. In the following examples, "number" is the desired PubMed ID (an 8-digit number) and "link text" is the desired text to display for the link.
    1. %PMIDL{pmid="number" name="link text"}%
    2. %PMIDL{number}%
      This method defaults the link text to number.
    3. %PMIDC{number}%
      This method defaults the link text to the short citation provided by PubMed.

Anterior cruciate ligament graft choice is controversial, with no evidence-based 
consensus available to guide decision making. The study design was evidence-based
medicine systematic review of randomized controlled trials evaluating patellar
tendon versus hamstring tendon autografts. A literature review identified 9
randomized controlled trials comparing patellar tendon and hamstring tendon
autografts. An evidence-based systematic review was performed. Objective and
subjective outcomes of interest included surgical technique, rehabilitation,
instrumented laxity, isokinetic strength, patellofemoral pain, return to
preinjury activity, and Tegner, Lysholm, Cincinnati, and International Knee
Documentation Committee-1991 scores. Additional surgery, graft failure, and
complications were reviewed. Slight increased laxity on arthrometer testing was
seen in the hamstring population in 3 of 7 studies. Pain with kneeling was
greater for the patellar tendon population in 4 of 4 studies. Only 1 of 9 studies
showed increased anterior knee pain in the patellar tendon group. Frequency of
additional surgery seemed to be related to the fixation method and not graft
type. No study reported a significant difference in graft failure between
patellar tendon and hamstring tendon autografts. Objective differences (range of 
motion, isokinetic strength, arthrometer testing) were not detected between
groups in the majority of studies, suggesting that their sensitivity to detect
clinical outcomes may be limited. Increased kneeling pain in the patellar tendon 
group was seen consistently in the studies evaluated. Subjective differences in
anterior knee pain or return-to-activity level were not consistently observed in 
these studies. With numbers available, failure rates were not significantly
different between groups. These findings suggest that graft type may not be the
primary determinant for successful outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament
surgery.
