Doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers and neuropsychologists — many of them national leaders in their field — showcased their peer-reviewed published research at the first Research and Scholarly Activities Expo, called Path to Discovery, at JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute. The medical professionals also displayed their published book chapters, professional presentations and workshops that are advancing the field of rehabilitation medicine. “Our physicians and researchers are publishing nationally, presenting at research conferences around the nation, and creating valuable training programs for new physicians. We wanted to create a forum to bring all of our great work together in one place,” said Sara J. Cuccurullo, MD, Vice President and Medical Director of JFK Johnson. Dr. Cuccurullo also is Chair of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. The posters, papers, educational displays and hands-on demonstrations at the November, 2016, event focused on a range of topics, such as audiology, cognitive rehabilitation, orthopedic injury, speech therapy, brain trauma and stroke rehabilitation. One demonstration focused on management of tracheostomies, a surgical opening created in the neck to allow direct access to the patient’s breathing tube. Chris Wade, RN, BSN, CRRN, the nurse manager of the Brain Trauma Unit, teaches medical residents the best way to manage patients with tracheostomies to reduce infection and other complications. She demonstrated how a tracheostomy works on a specially designed mannequin. The JFK Johnson education protocols for tracheostomy are being used in rehabilitation institutes across the nation. “Managing a tracheostomy is highly specialized and complex,” Wade said. Nearby, Elizabeth Aspell, Au.D., CCC-A, was discussing advances in audiology for the hearing impaired. She has researched new technology to help patients who have difficulty discerning sounds in noisy environments. Advances in hearing-aid technology block out background noise, and studies at JFK Johnson have found the new devices helpful to many patients. “A lot of people will say they tried a hearing aid 10 years ago and it didn’t work,” Aspell said. “Yet today when they come to us, we are able to help most of them.” Also on display was the textbook Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Board Review, Third Edition. Dr. Cuccurullo is editor of the textbook, which has sold more than 25,000 copies and is used by physicians around the nation as they prepare for medical board examinations and re-certification. “The book is a reflection of our department, and many of our physicians have written chapters,” Dr. Cuccurullo said. Two of the many other presenters included: Dr. Cuccurullo said the Expo was successful in sharing the many ways JFK Johnson is advancing the field of rehabilitation and may become an annual event. Since 1974, JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute has developed programs in such specialties as stroke rehabilitation, orthopedic programs, fitness, cardiac rehabilitation, women's health, pediatrics and brain injury rehabilitation. In addition to providing inpatient adult rehabilitation services, the Institute treats thousands of children and adults each year on an outpatient and short-term basis. Outpatient rehabilitation programs are provided in Edison and at our facilities in Metuchen and Monroe. We also provide consulting, treatment, education and advocacy for local companies, professionals and schools.

Background: Resistant fibrotic calcified plaque is a major limitation in treating peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) balloon pressures of 8-16 atm are typically required in these lesions. Ultrasound has detected significant dissection or plaque fracture immediately after balloon dilation in 76% of patients. Endovascular techniques are available that remove calcified plaque and alter lesion compliance, which minimizes dissection and stenting. A single-center experience evaluating the long-term durability of calcified plaque removal utilizing orbital atherectomy is presented. Methods: Patients with PAD underwent primary intervention with orbital atherectomy followed by low-pressure balloon angioplasty. Lesion compliance markers, including balloon inflation pressures and times, dissection rates, and bail-out stent rates, were recorded. Twelve-month re-intervention rates were also tracked. Results: Forty-six patients (57 lesions) were treated. Average age was 71 years and 74% of the patients were male. Rutherford classification was 3 to 5 for all patients. Lesion locations were in the common femoral artery (9%), superficial femoral artery (56%), popliteal artery (19%), and tibial/peritoneal arteries (16%). Average pretreatment stenosis was 90%. Adjunctive PTA was utilized in 82.5% of the lesions. Mean maximum inflation pressure was 5 atm for a mean of 2.3 minutes. Mean residual stenosis was 11%. One dissection occurred and no bailout stenting was required. Five patients (10.9%) returned for target lesion re-treatment. Conclusion: Orbital atherectomy modifies calcified lesion compliance in resistant peripheral arterial plaques as demonstrated by low balloon inflation pressures of short duration. Bail-out stenting was eliminated. Results were durable and the re-intervention rate was low.
