  • Arthroscopic examination is the treatment of choice, with removal of the abnormal cartilage and subchondral bone. (merckvetmanual.com)
  • Exposure of the subchondral bone plate resulted in a deep layer of fibrocartilage and a superficial layer of fibrous connective tissue. (vt.edu)
  • Further studies are needed before removal of the subchondral bone plate can be recommended for clinical treatment of full-thickness articular cartilage lesions. (vt.edu)

  • It actually develops inside a tendon, and as such does not articulate with any other bone directly. (wordpress.com)
  • Surgery Definition - What are the carpal bones? (medicalzone.net)
  • Current treatments for patients with bone metastases are primarily palliative and include localized therapies (radiation and surgery), systemic therapies (chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, radiopharmaceutical, and bisphosphonates although the primary goal of the use of these therapies are often to address the disease itself), and analgesics (opioids and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).

  • Subsequently, the bone screw was developed for use in cancellous applications in which good compression and a headless design are desired. (medscape.com)
  • A surgeon can use small compression screws or K-Wires to unite the two pieces of bone. (wikipedia.org)
  • It may be recalled that the object of an arthrodesis is to obtain very good stability both primary and secondary, and to place, or to maintain, in compression, two bone parts or bone fragments that should be consolidated. (google.ca)
  • Mention can be made, for example, of basic staples without shape memory which do not produce a compression, as opposed to memory staples which serve to place the two bone parts to be consolidated in compression, which corresponds to the objective. (google.ca)
