Allografts with autogenous platelet-rich plasma for tibial defect reconstruction: a rabbit study. (1/24)

PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of autogenous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for fresh-frozen allografts in tibial defect reconstruction in rabbits. METHODS: 40 adult New Zealand white rabbits underwent tibial defect reconstruction with autografts (n=12), allografts without PRP (n=12), or allografts with PRP (n=12) and were observed for 12, 16, and 24 weeks (4 for each period). Tibias of the remaining 4 rabbits were used as donor allografts, and the remaining allografts were procured from recipient rabbits. A 1.5- cm cortical segment of the tibia was osteotomised, and then fixed with a 9-hole mini-compression plate and 2 cerclage wires. Allografts were stripped off the periosteum and soft tissues and medullary contents, and then stored in a freezer at -80 masculineC. All allografts were deep frozen for at least 4 weeks before transplantation. 7 ml of whole blood was drawn to prepare 1 ml of PRP. The PRP was then mixed with 1.0 ml of human thrombin to form a platelet gel. The PRP gel was then packed into the medullary canal of the allograft and applied on the cortical surface before tibial defect reconstruction. Rabbits were sacrificed at 12, 16, and 24 weeks. The specimens were assessed for bone union at host-graft junctions and for bone resorption, new bone formation, callus encasement, and viable osteocyte counts. RESULTS: There were 4 specimens in each group at each observation period. Osteoid bridging the gap at host-graft junctions was noted in all specimens in the autograft and allograft-with-PRP groups at week 12 and in the allograft-without-PRP group at week 24. Bone union in allografts without PRP was delayed. All indices for biological incorporation (resorption index, new bone formation index, callus encasement index, and viable osteocyte count) were significantly greater in the autograft than allograft-without-PRP groups, except for the resorption index at week 24, whereas the differences were not significant between the autograft and allograft-with-PRP groups. The differences between the 2 allograft groups were usually not significant, except for the resorption index. CONCLUSION: PRP-augmented allografts behaved similarly to autografts for tibial defect reconstruction in rabbits. PRP increased bone union and bone resorption.  (+info)

Distal fibular lengthening after premature growth arrest: a case report. (2/24)

Post-traumatic premature closure of the distal fibular growth plate is a rare entity leading to shortening of the lateral malleolus. We report on a 14-year old boy who presented with a 4-year history of worsening, diffuse discomfort and swelling of his left ankle, as well as fibular shortening and talar malreduction. He had sustained a distal tibial fracture 4 years earlier and had been treated with closed reduction. He reported instability of the ankle and difficulty with running. There was 1-cm shortening of the left fibula, 1-cm shortening of the proximal fibula, and slight widening of the medial clear space. Both tibial and fibular growth plates were already closed and the left ankle joint space was slightly narrowed. He was treated with late fibular lengthening and autogenous iliac crest tricortical bone grafting and achieved anatomic restoration of the distal tibiofibular relationship. At one-year follow-up, the ankle-hindfoot score had improved from 69 to 100.  (+info)

High-dose therapy followed by autologous transplantation has improved survival in MM, however all patients eventually relapse, indicating the need for consolidation. Activation of idiotype-specific T cells by vaccination with autologous tumorprotein-loaded dendritic cells has been demonstrated. So-called Vaccibodies (consisting of two scFv (single chain Fragment variable) specific for surface molecules on APC (MHCII, CD40) linked to two exchangeable scFv from the mouse M315 myeloma protein and a Cγ3 dimerizing domain) elicit anti-Id antibodies in mice even in the absence of adjuvant, and stimulate Id-specific CD4+ T cells in vitro ...
In the abnormal myeloma cells several specific translocations have been described that facilitate cell survival. t(4;14) involves expression of the Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 3 (FGFR3) in most cases, activation of which initiates intra cellular signalling and activation of anti-apoptotic genes in the myeloma cells. t(11;14) activates the cyclin D1 gene, which promotes the initiation of the cell cycle, enabling myeloma cells to divide and proliferate. Loss of tumour suppressor genes such as Retinoblastoma-1 gene through deletion of chromosome 13q, ongoing p53 mutations and activation of the proto-oncogenes c-Maf through the t(14;16) and C-myc, as well as activation of the anti-apoptosis genes bcl-2 and Mcl1 all result in improved survival advantages for abnormal myeloma cells. ...

Multiple myeloma management has undergone profound changes in the past thanks to advances in our understanding of the disease biology and improvements in treatment and supportive care approaches. This article presents recommendations of the European Myeloma Network for newly diagnosed patients based on the GRADE system for level of evidence. All patients with symptomatic disease should undergo risk stratification to classify patients for International Staging System stage (level of evidence: 1A) and for cytogenetically defined high-versus standard-risk groups (2B). Novel-agent-based induction and up-front autologous stem cell transplantation in medically fit patients remains the standard of care (1A). Induction therapy should include a triple combination of bortezomib, with either adriamycin or thalidomide and dexamethasone (1A), or with cyclophosphamide and dexamethasone (2B). Currently, allogeneic stem cell transplantation may be considered for young patients with high-risk disease and ...

ABSTRACT Introduction. Combinations of fibrous materials with therapeutic agents as a drug delivery system are currently studied. A new direction has appeared in reconstructive surgery - tissue engineering, which aims to restore biological functions, i.e. tissue regeneration, not only to replace it with synthetic material.. The objective of the study was to evaluate the antibiotic-sorbing ability of the three-dimensional non-woven matrices we created for reconstructing bone defects, made of polycaprolactone, and the possibility of releasing the impregnated antibiotic from the matrix material.. Materials and methods. The study was conducted in the Department of Surgical Dentistry of Ivano-Frankivsk National Medical University, Ukraine, between September 12, 2019 - October 3, 2019. We used samples of three-dimensional micro-fibrous non-woven matrix for the defects reconstruction of the bone tissue made of polycaprolactone according to the developed technique. Collagen fragments were used as ...

Purpose Mucins are vital to keep the ocular surface hydrated. Genes encoding for mucins contain a glucocorticoid response element. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of fluorometholone, a glucocorticoid receptor agonist used in the management of dry eye, on the gene expression of conjunctival and corneal epithelial cell mucins. Methods Stratified cultures of human conjunctival and corneal epithelial cells were exposed to 25, 50 and 100 nM of fluorometholone alone or in presence of mifepristone, a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist. The mRNA was isolated from the cells and reverse transcribed to cDNA. The cDNA was used for quantification of gene expression of mucin (MUC) 1, 4, 16 and 19 using real‐time PCR. Results Fluorometholone caused a dose‐ and time‐dependent increase in the gene expression of MUC1, MUC4, MUC16 and MUC19 in the conjunctival as well as corneal epithelial cells. Mifepristone, a glucocorticoid receptor antagonist, inhibited fluorometholone‐mediated increase
OBJECTIVES. This study was performed at the Clinic of Surgery and Ophthalmology of the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences between years of 1998 and 2001.. Deep melting and uncomplicated corneal ulcers are common in dogs. Only medical treatment is not effective in the therapy. There are numerous methods for the surgical management of corneal ulcers. We wanted to answer the next questions:. 1. If the free island graft method effective enough in the healing of deep ulcers?. 2. If the free graft remains vital after transplantation?. 3. Is the graft able to integrate into the tissue of the cornea?. 4. If the vision is affected after the complete healing?. MATERIALS. Fifty canine eyes (of 49 dogs; 42 pure breed dogs, 7 mixed) with deep corneal ulcers were operated with the free conjunctival graft transplantation method during the examination period. Detailed physical eye examination were performed regularly in each dogs prior and after to surgery with slit lamp biomicroscope, applanation tonometer and ...

Purpose : In a recent clinical trial (Pinto-Fraga, Ophthalmology 2015) we concluded that topical 0.1% fluorometholone therapy reduced ocular signs in dry-eye (DE) patients and prevented exacerbation caused by exposure to desiccating stress (DS). We now identify severity, activity (i.e. response to DS) and therapeutic tear biomarkers (tBM) in these patients using linear mixed effect statistical models. Methods : 41 DE patients were recruited (visit 1, V1) and randomized to receive either topical 0.1% fluorometholone or its vehicle polyvinyl alcohol, 4 times daily for 21 days (V2). Immediately after, patients were exposed to DS in a controlled environment laboratory for 2h (V3) which increases DE activity as previously reported (Lopez-Miguel, Am J Ophthalmol 2014). Clinical evaluation and tear collection were performed at each visit. A panel of 18 potential tBM (EGF, IFNγ, IL-1β, IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, IL-13, IL-1RA, IL-17A, IP-10, RANTES, TNFα, MIP-1α, MMP-9, MCP-1) was ...

VPS, which stands for virtual private server, is a happy middle ground between the casual dating of shared hosting and the commitment of a dedicated server. The server is divided into virtual machines, which act as independent dedicated servers. VPS customers still share a server, but they each have much larger portions and greater control than those with a shared hosting plan.. Because you can add or remove additional computing resources as needed, VPS hosting plans are akin to dating around - you might have a relatively serious relationship with your main server squeeze, but that doesnt mean you cant have someone else on standby for when you have an itch you need scratching.. Our favorite VPS hosts usually include storage with high-speed SSDs, or solid-state drives, along with managed services for software updates and patches. Depending on your comfort level with the technical side of things, youll want to look for a free cPanel license or full root access. You will also see top VPS hosts ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Optimizing Bone Defect Reconstruction - Balanced Cable Transport with Circular External Fixation. AU - Quinnan, Stephen. AU - Lawrie, Charles. PY - 2017/10/1. Y1 - 2017/10/1. N2 - Distraction osteogenesis has proven effective in the management of tibial bone loss from severe trauma and infection. Unfortunately, pain and scarring from wires and half pins dragging through the skin and the required prolonged time in the external fixator make treatment difficult. Cable bone transport has been shown to improve cosmesis and decrease pain during transport. However, the published methods have limitations in that they have poor control of transport segment alignment, do not allow for lengthening of the limb, and do not permit weight bearing during the treatment process. We describe a novel method of cable bone transport that addresses each of these limitations with excellent control of alignment including the transport segment, easy conversion to allow limb lengthening, and full weight ...
A pterygium is a wedge-shaped piece of abnormal tissue that grows out of the cornea. Whether or not surgical removal of a pterygium is recommended depends on its size and extent, as well as its tendency for recurrent inflammation. If a pterygium is small but becomes intermittently inflamed, the ophthalmologist may recommend the use of a nonsteroidal or a mild steroid eye drop when the inflammation develops. Removal is typically recommended if the pterygium grows far enough onto the cornea to impair vision, if it causes chronic inflammation and irritation, or if it interferes with contact lens wear.. Surgical removal of a pterygium is an outpatient procedure that takes less than an hour to perform. The risk of recurrence of the pterygium after surgery can be reduced with the use of a conjunctival graft taken from under the upper eyelid that is placed over the site where the pterygium was located. The graft may be secured with sutures or with human fibrin tissue glue (sutureless pterygium ...

You remember how the plan was to have an autograft?. Forget that.. It seems Im not much good at getting my stem cells going, as the bone marrow harvest the other day didnt provide nearly enough for the autograft… Its unlikely that further harvests would suddenly garner big results, and without enough stem cells for the rescue I cant have the high-dose chemotherapy and radiotherapy, so the autograft is no longer a possibility. Naturally this is a bit frustrating, as Id got my mind set on it and was looking forward to potentially finishing my treatment in the next couple of months and being back to full strength by, say, September.. Instead, Ill now be having the long-term chemotherapy option, which of course has its advantages. Although Ill still be having some radiotherapy, itll just be cranial this time, so hopefully the side effects will be less. The treatment is less intense than the autograft, and there will not be the 5-10% risk of picking up an infection that would prove fatal. ...
