  • defect
  • Parameters to be evaluated are: filling of the defect, integration of the border zone to the adjacent cartilage, intactness of the subchondral lamina, intactness of the subchondral bone, and relative signal intensities of the repair tissue compared to the adjacent native cartilage. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • graft
  • These drawbacks could be overcome by using a tissue engineered nasal cartilage graft, thereby reducing donor site morbidity without introducing additional risk of complication or technically challenging techniques. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • inferior
  • Furthermore many techniques show unsatisfactory long term results due to inferior quality of repair tissue as compared to native cartilage or have yet to prove the cost versus benefit. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • transplantation
  • The available treatment options include debridement, marrow stimulation with the PowerPick™ instrument, Osteochondral Autograft Transplantation (OATS ® technique) and BioCartilage ® Cartilage Extracellular Matrix to augment a traditional microfracture or marrow stimulation procedure.

  • femoral
  • We tested cartilage on the medial femoral condyle and lateral femoral condyle of seven C57Bl6 mice at different ages (2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 12, and 17 weeks old) using a micro-indentation test. (springer.com)
  • Chan EF, Harjanto R, Asahara H, Inoue N, Masuda K, Bugbee WD, Firestein GS, Hosalkar HS, Lotz MK, Sah RL (2012) Structural and functional maturation of distal femoral cartilage and bone during postnatal development and growth in humans and mice. (springer.com)
  • extent
  • Although hysteresis in ligaments and tendons has been studied to a great extent, limited work has been done with regards to cartilage response. (rice.edu)
  • symptoms
  • Injury to the cartilage will normally produce symptoms of pain, swelling, clicking, sometimes locking and sometimes sensations of instability. (netdoctor.co.uk)
  • injury
  • Orthopedic surgeons specializing in the lower extremity will find this book to be an excellent resource that they can consult to guide them in the treatment of patients with articular cartilage injury of the knee. (ovid.com)
  • treatment
  • A comprehensive reference that combines the basic scientific knowledge of articular cartilage as it relates to patient health and disease with patient-focused diagnosis and treatment options. (ovid.com)
  • Dr. Jack Farr, a leading orthopedic surgeon out of Indianapolis stated, "The research presented at the conference shows a compelling case for a new treatment option we now have for articular cartilage disease. (prweb.com)
  • significantly
  • A synthetic preferential inhibitor of MMP-13 significantly reduced the unstimulated release in culture of neoepitope COL2-3/4C(short) from human osteoarthritic cartilage explants. (jci.org)
  • method
  • These findings can lead to the development of a hysteretic model for cartilage, which may be used in a clinical setting to establish a novel method for determining the state of disease of cartilage. (rice.edu)
