  • anterior cruciate
  • Understanding this injury and developing new treatments for it have lagged behind the other cruciate ligament in the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), probably because there are far fewer PCL injuries than ACL injuries. (eorthopod.com)
  • An alternative physical examination procedure for evaluating the integrity of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has been proposed in the literature but has not been validated in a broad population of patients with a symptomatic complaint of knee pain for its diagnostic value.

  • human
  • Here, we assess anti-inflammatory properties of LL-37 and investigate the effects of LL-37 on cell differentiation, cell proliferation and apoptosis in human periodontal ligament cells. (mau.se)
  • CONCLUSION: LL-37 strongly attenuates lipopolysaccharide-induced cytokine and chemokine expression and, in high concentrations, reduces cell proliferation through inhibition of DNA synthesis and by promoting apoptosis in human periodontal ligament cells. (mau.se)
  • inguinal
  • Cooper's Suspensory Ligament should not be confused with the pectineal ligament (sometimes called the inguinal ligament of Cooper) which shares the same eponym. (wikipedia.org)
  • The round ligament of the uterus goes from the pelvis, passes through the internal abdominal ring, and runs along the inguinal canal to the labia majora. (wikipedia.org)
  • The varicocoele starts at the veins draining the round ligament and the inguinal canal and is associated with engorgement of the veins of the ovaries and the pelvis during pregnancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • RLP and inguinal hernia Several cases of varicosity, of the round ligament during pregnancy leading to RLP have been reported although they were frequently misdiagnosed as inguinal hernia. (wikipedia.org)
  • ligamentum
  • There are at least 2 other round ligaments in the human body, the round ligament of the liver (ligamentum teres hepatis) and the round ligament of the head of the femur (ligamentum teres femoris). (wikipedia.org)
  • Fortunately, from a clinical standpoint, denticulate ligaments do not play a significant role in lumbar spinal stenosis when compared to issues such as disc herniations, facet hypertrophy, shape of spinal canal, size of spinal canal, ligamentum flavum hypertrophy, or degenerative joint disease resulting in bony osteophyte formation. (wikipedia.org)
  • graft
  • More commonly, the ligament must be replaced by a graft from the patient's own tissue or tissue from a cadaver. (wikipedia.org)
  • hamate
  • The fifth receives a single fasciculus from the hamate, and this is continuous with a similar ligament on the volar surface, forming an incomplete capsule. (wikipedia.org)
  • vertebrae
  • The radiate ligaments connect the front portion of the head of each rib with the side of the bodies of two vertebrae and the intervertebral fibrocartilage between them. (innerbody.com)
  • spinal
  • There is a perfectly matched pair of longitudinal ligaments in each spinal anatomy. (cure-back-pain.org)
  • However, conditions that affect the posterior ligament are usually deemed far more serious, since this is the tissue that provides the frontal border to the central spinal canal. (cure-back-pain.org)
  • Degeneration can cause increased laxity or tension in the spinal ligaments. (cure-back-pain.org)
  • However, ossification or hypertrophy of the posterior ligament can be highly problematic and is a primary cause of central spinal stenosis in many patients. (cure-back-pain.org)
  • However, osseous and hypertrophic concerns affecting the posterior ligament should always be monitored by a qualified neurology professional , in order to make sure that the spinal cord does not suffer any ill effects, such as compression or hemorrhage due to canal impingement. (cure-back-pain.org)
  • The pia mater of the spinal cord has a pair of denticulate ligaments (one on each side of the spinal cord) with 21 attachments per side which attach it to the arachnoid and dura mater. (wikipedia.org)
  • torn
  • Most athletes will require reconstructive surgery on the ACL, in which the torn or ruptured ACL is completely removed and replaced with a piece of tendon or ligament tissue from the patient (autograft) or from a donor (allograft). (wikipedia.org)
  • Is this torn ligaments? (zocdoc.com)
  • Are my ligaments torn? (zocdoc.com)
  • stretches
  • Some stretches to help prevent injury to the posterior cruciate ligament include stretching of the hamstring muscles by extending the legs, toes pointing up, leaning forward until the stretch is felt and holding for a few seconds. (wikipedia.org)
  • The radius of curvature of the head of the humerus is greater superiorly than inferiorly, which further stretches these ligaments so that they keep the articular surfaces of the joint in their close-packed position. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissue
  • Cooper's ligaments (also known as the suspensory ligaments of Cooper and the fibrocollagenous septa) are connective tissue in the breast that help maintain structural integrity. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ligaments run from the clavicle and the clavipectoral fascia branching out through and around breast tissue to the dermis of the skin overlying the breast. (wikipedia.org)
  • Without the internal support of this ligament, the breast tissue (which is heavier than the surrounding fat) sags under its own weight, losing its normal shape and contour. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many women have held the belief that sagging is caused by the failure of the Cooper's ligaments to support the breast tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • Breast tissue and suspensory ligaments may also be stretched if the woman is overweight or loses and gains weight. (wikipedia.org)
  • capsule
  • Ligaments also play a role in protecting the articlular capsule. (infobarrel.com)
  • The ligaments may be best seen by opening the capsule at the back of the joint and removing the head of the humerus: One on the medial side of the joint passes from the medial edge of the glenoid cavity to the lower part of the lesser tubercle of the humerus. (wikipedia.org)
  • heal
  • Occasionally, stimulation of the body's natural ability to heal the native ligament, called a "healing response", is relied upon. (wikipedia.org)
  • Minor sprains of the ligaments will naturally heal and will take a short period of time to revert back to their normal state. (infobarrel.com)
  • cervical
  • Denticulate ligaments are characterised by high extensibility (on average 50% of their initial length) and relatively low force necessary to rupture them (around 1 N). Their strength, especially in cervical region, decreases in caudal orientation. (wikipedia.org)
  • pain
  • Round ligament pain (RLP) is pain associated with the round ligament of the uterus, usually during pregnancy. (wikipedia.org)
  • My whole right side is off between a pulled groin, horrible pubic bone pain and my back that sometimes I look like I am a 100 years old trying to move my leg or stand or roll over and then when the ligament pain starts it literally has me doubling over. (dailystrength.org)
  • play
  • The suspensory ligaments of Cooper play an important role in the change in appearance of the breast that often accompanies the development of inflammatory carcinoma of the breast in which blockage of the local lymphatic ducts causes swelling of the breast. (wikipedia.org)
