  • Tendon
  • An anchoring apparatus and method of use are disclosed that secure a tendon or ligament within an interior opening of a bone structure. (google.com)
  • The securing device has an elongated body with an outer surface and an inner surface wherein the tendon or ligament fits between the interior of the open bone structure and the outer surface of the securing device. (google.com)
  • Most cases requiring surgery for ACL ruptures undergo reconstruction of the ligament using a section of the patients' hamstring, or patellar tendon, or, less commonly, allogeneic grafts. (hindawi.com)
  • bones
  • 3D Organon Anatomy - Skeleton, Bones, and Ligaments is a feature-rich interactive anatomical atlas of the skeletal system and connective tissues enhanced with quality anatomy descriptions and texts with frequently encountered clinical correlations. (appannie.com)
  • fascia
  • The superficial fascia covers the saphenous opening (where it is termed the cribriform fascia) and fuses with the fascia lata inferior to, and parallel with the inguinal ligament, thereby preventing any fluid that might collect deep to the subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen from entering the thigh. (dartmouth.edu)
  • The fascia of the thigh, known as the fascia lata, is attached posterolaterally to the iliac crest and anteriorly to the inguinal ligament. (dartmouth.edu)
  • tissue
  • Healing after ligament injury is poor leaving abnormal scar tissue which frequently is unable to function effectively [ 4 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • Since then a large amount of research has been conducted into periodontal ligament stem cells (PDLSCs), both into the characterisation of these cells [ 10 , 11 ] and into their use in tissue engineering strategies [ 12 , 13 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • degeneration
  • Ligament is prone to injury and degeneration and has poor healing potential and, with currently ineffective treatment strategies, stem cell therapies may provide an exciting new treatment option. (hindawi.com)
  • laxity
  • Ligament arthrometry using the KT-2000 arthrometer demonstrated that only 2 patients had >5 mm manual maximum side-to-side difference in laxity. (ovid.com)
  • clinical
  • Unilateral partial ossification of sacrotuberous ligament: anatomico-radiological evaluation and clinical implications. (biomedsearch.com)
  • An ossified sacrotuberous ligament may be an important etiological factor in neurovascular compression syndromes and its anatomical knowledge may help in the development of new treatment for this common clinical problem. (biomedsearch.com)
  • flexion
  • These findings are exceptionally reported in the literature, especially concerning the apical ligament which might be a stabiliser in flexion and extension of the occipitocervical joint. (biomedsearch.com)
  • surgeons
  • The primary target audience for Current Concepts in Knee Ligament Procedures is AANA members and non-member orthopaedic surgeons who desire to improve their arthroscopic knowledge and skill in knee surgery. (aana.org)
