Frontera Grill & Topolobampo

For amazing Mexican food and even better margarita, I choose Frontera Grill! This is by far my personal favorite for Mexican food in Chicago.

Celebrity chef Rick Bayless defines authentic regional Mexican cuisine for north-of-the-border diners at Frontera and Topolobampo, where the latter provides fine dining and the former offers a rustic take. Topolobampo accepts reservations but I never mind waiting for a table at Frontera while enjoying a margarita.

Hands-on Workshop: New Concepts in Intramedullary Nail Locking

The Synthes Angular Stable Locking System (ASLS), when used with Synthes cannulated titanium intramedullary nails, is intended to aid in the alignment and stabilization of tibial, humeral, femoral and ankle fractures. It is designed to allow users who want fixed angle locking in a nail.

Fixed angle locking is achieved when the gap between the locking screw and the nail is filled by an elastic material (PLA) which gives a firm initial connection after which resorption will gradually increase micromotion and load sharing to the levels of a typical interlocked nail.
