Autologous chondrocyte implantation at the knee using a bilayer collagen membrane with bone graft. A preliminary report. (1/9)

Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) is a technique used for the treatment of symptomatic osteochondral defects of the knee. A variation of the original periosteum membrane technique is the matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) technique. The MACI membrane consists of a porcine type-I/III collagen bilayer seeded with chondrocytes. Osteochondral defects deeper than 8 to 10 mm usually require bone grafting either before or at the time of transplantation of cartilage. We have used a variation of Peterson's ACI-periosteum sandwich technique using two MACI membranes with bone graft which avoids periosteal harvesting. The procedure is suture-free and requires less operating time and surgical exposure. We performed this MACI-sandwich technique on eight patients, five of whom were assessed at six months and one year post-operatively using the modified Cincinnati knee, the Stanmore functional rating and the visual analogue pain scores. All patients improved within six months with further improvement at one year. The clinical outcome was good or excellent in four after six months and one year. No significant graft-associated complications were observed. Our early results of the MACI-sandwich technique are encouraging although larger medium-term studies are required before there is widespread adoption of the technique.  (+info)

Second-look arthroscopy of cartilage changes of the patellofemoral joint, especially the patella, following acute and recurrent patellar dislocation. (2/9)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to clarify some pathogenesis of the cartilage changes of the patellofemoral joint in patellar dislocation knees. METHODS: A first arthroscopy was performed in a total of 60 knees, including 30 knees of acute patellar dislocation (APD) and 30 knees of recurrent patellar dislocation (RPD). At the time of the first arthroscopy, 58 knees sustained open medial patellofemoral ligament repair/reconstruction, and 2 knees had only arthroscopy examination. In APD knees, the second-look arthroscopy was performed 16.7 months after the first arthroscopy, and in RPD knees, 25.2 months after the first arthroscopy. RESULTS: In most APD knees, cracking primarily on the central dome of the patella did not have a remarkable change but in several knees that had a high number of cracking or interlaced cracking, cracking became worse with fibrillation. Osteochondral defect site primarily on the medial facet showed fibrillation and/or ulceration (erosion). In most RPD knees, fissuring primarily on the central dome did not have a remarkable change, and fibrillation and/or erosion mainly on the medial facet also did not have a remarkable change. However, in four knees with the continuation of patellar dislocation, the patellar cartilage changes had definitely worsened. On the other hand, in the first and second-look arthroscopy, most APD and RPD knees had no remarkable cartilage lesions or cartilage changes of the femoro-trochlear aspect. CONCLUSIONS: One of the pathogenesis of fissuring in RPD knees seems to be cracking occurring at the time of APD. Two of the pathogenesis of fibrillation may result from the reparative reaction of the cartilage in osteochondral defect site and the cartilage change due to a high degree of cracking damage mainly on the central dome in APD injury. The continuation of patellar dislocation definitely makes the patellar cartilage lesions worse.  (+info)

Who is the ideal candidate for autologous chondrocyte implantation? (3/9)

We investigated the prognostic indicators for collagen-covered autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI-C) performed for symptomatic osteochondral defects of the knee. We analysed prospectively 199 patients for up to four years after surgery using the modified Cincinnati score. Arthroscopic assessment and biopsy of the neocartilage was also performed whenever possible. The favourable factors for ACI-C include younger patients with higher pre-operative modified Cincinnati scores, a less than two-year history of symptoms, a single defect, a defect on the trochlea or lateral femoral condyle and patients with fewer than two previous procedures on the index knee. Revision ACI-C in patients with previous ACI and mosaicplasties which had failed produced significantly inferior clinical results. Gender (p = 0.20) and the size of the defect (p = 0.97) did not significantly influence the outcome.  (+info)

Chondromalacia patellae treated by warming needle and rehabilitation training. (5/9)

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effect of warming needle combined with rehabilitation training on chondromalacia patellae in a randomized controlled trial. METHODS: The 92 cases were randomly divided into a treatment group treated by warming needle plus rehabilitation training (47 cases) and a control group treated by medication plus rehabilitation training (45 cases), and the therapeutic effect was compared after 20 sessions. RESULTS: The pain was relieved more obviously in the treatment group than in the control group (P < 0.05), and the total effective rate was 91.8% and 71.1% respectively (P < 0.01). CONCLUSION: Warming needle plus rehabilitation training was superior in the therapeutic effect and duration of producing relief of pain to medication plus rehabilitation training in treating chondromalacia patellae.  (+info)

Pain level: Mild to severe. Chondromalacia patella is a condition in which the cartilage underneath the kneecap wears down, typically due to the constant stress that occurs when runners repeatedly pound the pavement. "Most people whove had some sort of athletic career when they were younger have a mild form of chondromalacia patella," says Holland.. There are varying levels of soreness associated with chondromalacia patella, from a mild ache when squatting to pain so severe that running is impossible. The pain is felt underneath the kneecap in a larger surface area than you see with patellofemoral pain syndrome, and you may occasionally hear crackling sounds.. In mild cases, physical therapy will help correct the issues and ease the pain, while severe cases typically call for cortisone injections or surgery. ...
Chondromalacia (otherwise known as chondromalacia patellae, anterior knee pain syndrome, patellofemoral disorder or runners knee) is caused by improper tracking of the kneecap over the femur. As a result, the cartilage under the kneecap becomes roughened and pain results when the knee is bent or straightened while bearing weight.

Regular exercise with Powerball® can help maintain muscle tone and health from finger to shoulder, thanks to its rhythmic movement and non-impact nature. When your muscles respond to the demands placed upon them from exercising with Powerball®, blood flow increases and joint health is promoted by stimulating the production of synovial fluid (the fluid that lubricates and nourishes joints). The gripping action required to hold Powerball® activates the finger flexor muscles and the wrist extensor muscles. Activating the wrist extensors prevents wrist flexion, thereby enhancing grip strength. With the wrist extensors activated by the gripping action, the rotatory movements necessary to maintain the gyroscopic movement of Powerball® exert forces on a wide range of muscles.. ...

Introduction: Stroke survivors develop substantial disability such as weakness, spasticity, increased stiffness, and reduced range of motion in lower limbs, contributing to reduced quality of life. It is important to stretch impaired ankle and knee to increase range of motion and reduce spasticity, and to conduct active movement training to improve balance and locomotion.. Hypothesis: We addressed the hypotheses that robot-aided ankle and knee training will reduce motor impairments and improve balance and gait functions, and the improvements will maintain to the 6-weeks follow-up.. Methods: Seven male stroke survivors participated in the robot-guided ankle and knee rehabilitation training using a pair of ankle and knee rehabilitation robots over 18 training sessions (3 sessions/week for 6 weeks). Three evaluations were done before and after training, and 6 weeks follow-up. Each session involved passive stretching under intelligent control and active movement training under real-time, audiovisual ...
Methods. Sixty-two outpatients (49 men, 13 women, mean age 47.5 ± 10.6 yrs) were randomized to rehabilitation plus an educational-behavioral (n = 20) program, to an educational-behavioral program only (n = 20), or to a control group (n = 22). The educational-behavioral program included 2 educational meetings and 12 rehabilitation exercise sessions (stretching, strengthening, chest and spine/hip joint flexibility exercises), which patients then performed at home. Outcome assessment at the end of rehabilitation training (T1) and at T2 was based on spinal pain intensity in the previous 4 weeks by self-report visual analog scale (VAS; 100 mm: 0 = no pain, 100 = maximum pain), BASMI, BASFI, BASDAI, and on chest expansion and the active range of motion of the cervical and lumbar spine measured by a pocket goniometer. ...

Background: To compare fat-suppressed three-dimensional gradient echo (3D-GRE) and two-dimensional gradient echo (2D-GRE) techniques for hepatic magnetic resonance imaging. Methods: For 107 patients with suspected focal hepatic lesions, unenhanced 2D-GRE multislice in-phase and opposed-phase images and 3D-GRE images were obtained. Two radiologists independently and in random order reviewed the images. Quantitative analysis compared contrast-to-noise ratio (C/N) of liver masses and of the liver to spleen and signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) of the liver. Subjective grading of lesion conspicuity, confidence for lesion detection, artifacts, and overall image quality were also evaluated. Results: Conspicuity and confidence for focal lesions was statistically significantly higher on 3D-GRE than on 2D-GRE images. Liver-to-spleen C/N was higher on 3D-GRE images than on in-phase and opposed-phase 2D-GRE images (p | 0.01). Liver S/N was higher on in-phase 2D-GRE images than on 3D-GRE and opposed-phase 2D-GRE images
I cant believe the kind of harassment she is getting. I promise you she is not the only 19 year old girl with a kid who has fun and drinks alcohol even though she is underage. She probably isnt even the only teen mother at that beach. If Maci were not on 16 and Pregnant or Teen Mom, she would not be getting the attention she is getting.

The incidence and prevalence of chronic musculoskeletal pain disorders (MSDs) in the United States is rising at an unprecedented rate. With the paradigm shift of diseases affecting the human population in developed countries switching from infectious diseases to non-communicable diseases, the prevalence of chronic MSDs is steadily increasing. The Global Burden of Disease identified low back pain, neck pain, and other musculoskeletal conditions as three of the top ten leading causes for years lived with disability worldwide.1 According to a forthcoming report from the United States Bone and Joint Initiative2, more than 78% of people age 18 years and older who reported having a disabling condition named a musculoskeletal disorder. The updated report also said more than one-half of the US population who live with a musculoskeletal condition experience decreases in both their quality of life and ability to perform activities of daily living. This was especially true for those who have back pain or ...
Big name, small problem. Everyday problem. Everybodys problem. Chondromalacia patellae is the medical name of that knee problem, the knee pain you have after returning from a vacation in the mountains, or after that trek with friends, and also after that dance drama you staged for the school function. It may appear to be a complicated disease by the name of it, but it is so simple and innocuous a disease that most people would have cured themselves while they waited for the doctors appointment.. Technically speaking, the bones in our joints are covered with firm spongy layer of tissue called cartilage. This tissue takes the entire load that passes through the joint & cushions the bones against the impact. Because their essential purpose is to absorb the joint impact forces, they undergo repetitive wear & tear. Nature compensates for this by healing it as fast as it wears down. But sometimes, when we suddenly over exert our knees - like when we do on vacations, on treks and during dance ...

Articular cartilage lesions occur commonly. Cartilage is relatively avascular and is unable to self-repair. A chondral lesion may become symptomatic. It may lead to osteoarthritis and increased morbidity. The aim of cartilage repair is to restore hyaline cartilage. There are many types of cartilage repair surgery, most of which result in fibrocartilage repair tissue that is suboptimal. Autologous chondrocyte implantation has been shown to produce hyaline-type repair tissue. Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is performed preoperatively to define the ulcer and postoperatively to evaluate the technical success of implantation and the state of cartilage healing and to identify potential complications. Features of the autologous chondrocyte implantation graft that are assessed include the degree of filling by repair tissue, its integration with native cartilage and subchondral bone, the character of the graft substance and surface, and the underlying bone. MR arthrography is superior to unenhanced MR ...
Anterior knee pain is also known as chondromalacia patella, patellar chondritis, and patello-femoral syndrome.. Pain felt at the front of the knee is usually due to problems with the patello-femoral mechanism (the kneecap). It is usually caused by softening of the joint surface underneath the kneecap. This causes pain as the knee bends and straightens and is particularly noticeable when the kneecap is under most strain such as climbing or descending stairs, kneeling and squatting.. It most commonly affects young individuals and is more common in females. It frequently appears without any obvious cause such as injury or overuse..

Combining intensive group exercise with an educational-behavioral program can provide promising results in the management of patients with clinically stabilized ankylosing spondylitis (AS) on tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitor treatment, say authors of an article available online April 1 in Journal of Rheumatology. Sixty-two outpatients (49 men, 13 women, mean age 47.5 ± 10.6 yrs) were randomized to rehabilitation plus an educational-behavioral (n = 20) program, to an educational-behavioral program only (n = 20), or to a control group (n = 22). The educational-behavioral program included 2 educational meetings and 12 rehabilitation exercise sessions (stretching, strengthening, chest and spine/hip joint flexibility exercises), which patients then performed at home. Outcome assessment at the end of rehabilitation training at 2 and 6 months was based on spinal pain intensity in the previous 4 weeks by self-report visual analog scale, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI), Bath ...

Downloadable! This paper formulates an econometric framework for studying the impact of interventions on discrete outcomes when responses to treatment vary among observationally identical persons. Using a latent variable model that can be linked to well-posed economic models, we show how to define and interpret the average treatment effects, the average effect of treatment on the treated, the marginal treatment effect and the distribution of treatment effects for discrete outcomes. To estimate these parameters and the distribution of treatment effects, we formulate and estimate a discrete choice model with unobservables generated by a factor structure model. We apply our methods to evaluate the effect of Norwegian Vocational Rehabilitation training programs on employment outcomes for women. We find that applicants to these programs who participate in active training have a 4.6% higher employment rate than nonparticipants. When we control for the observable characteristics of applicants, we find that the

To observe the effect of Triple Acupuncture Therapy, 50 SCI patients meeting study criteria were randomly assigned to a treatment group (n=25) and a control group (n=25). Both groups received rehabilitation training; the treatment group was added with triple acupuncture therapy and the control group was added with regular meridians acupuncture therapy once a day and a month as a course. All patients received three courses of treatment. Besides, 25 healthy subjects were enrolled as a normal control group. It was found out that the CGRP content in two groups were lower significantly than that in the normal control group before treatment. However, after one month of treatment, the CGRP content in treatment group was higher significantly than that in the control group. After three months of treatment, the ASIA motor score and the ASIA feel score were significantly increased in both groups. After two months, three months of treatment, the MBI scales in the two groups were also increased significantly ...
CNIB was incorporated on March 30, 1918[2] to provide food, clothing and sheltered residences for blind veterans returning from World War I as well as the 850 people blind by the Halifax Explosion in 1917,[3], the largest mass blinding in Canadian history.[4] It began with 27 employees serving 1,521 people who were blind, primarily in Toronto, with two "home teachers" providing rehabilitation training in other parts of Canada.[5]. During the 1920s, CNIB operated a job placement program with limited success, also creating jobs through its own factories, broom shops and concession stands. The organization also appointed a special nurse responsible for vision health and sight preservation.. In 1923, a Dominion Charter was obtained to establish a Home Nursery Hospital and Kindergarten for the Blind under 6 years of age in Ottawa.[6] Mothers of blind babies from any Province in the Dominion, were encouraged to place their charges in the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association for proper care and ...

NICE guidance is designed and developed for the NHS in England and is therefore not automatically applicable to Northern Ireland. On 1 July 2006 the Department established links with NICE whereby all technology appraisals and clinical guidelines published from that date are locally reviewed for applicability to Northern Ireland and, where appropriate, are endorsed for implementation in health and social care. THE LOCAL REVIEW DOES NOT REASSESS THE CLINICAL AND COST EVIDENCE USED BY NICE IN FORMING ITS ADVICE. This link has ensured that Northern Ireland has access to up-to-date, independent, professional, evidence-based guidance on the value of health care interventions.

A patella drill guide includes a base portion rotatably mounted on a bone-gripping component. A trial portion with a contoured articulation surface is above the base portion. The base portion and trial portion have aligned drill guide bores. The base portion and trial portion can be rotated together on the bone-gripping component to optimize the positions of the drill guide bores with respect to the patella surface, thereby optimizing the locations of the mounting pegs of the patella implant component on the patella to optimize the orientation of the patella implant component. The base and the bone-gripping component may be unitary so that the entire assembly rotates on the patella about the central longitudinal axis of the bone-gripping component.

... in older persons is quite hard and solid, notwithstanding Galens assertion that it is cartilaginous on the outside; 11 Marinus likewise, among other prominent anatomists, independently called it a cartilaginous bone and devoted a chapter to it in a book which he wrote, On Cartilaginous Bones. 12 These authors were perhaps thinking of the material of the tendons to which the patella is attached, which when boiled resembles soft cartilage, like the parts from which the sinewy heads of the muscles or the ligaments take their origin or into which they are inserted. But when the patella is properly cleaned of tendons 13 it is seen to be in no way cartilaginous, but quite solid and strong not only in humans but also in cattle, sheep, and other quadrupeds. Before their knee joint, as well, the Maker of things placed a patella, much longer and narrower than in humans, as in most birds it is wider and shorter. 14 ...
When neurons oscillate in synchrony, their electrical activity adds together so that measurements of field potential can pick them up. SWRs are one of the most synchronous oscillations in the brain.. The name derives from their characteristic trace when measuring local field potential: the slow sharp waves have a triangular shape with ripples, or fast field oscillations, added on. SWRs have been suggested to play a key role in making memories permanent. In this study, the researchers wanted to identify whether ripples are caused by a temporal modulation of excitation or of inhibition at the synapse, the connection between neurons.. For Professor Jozsef Csicsvari, a pooling of expertise was crucial in answering this question: ...
Chiefs: The Chiefs have found a passing game in the last month to match their running attack and their home field makes them dangerous. They continue to improve and compete at the highest level. They are for real -- and when they have offensive balance and get the lead, their defense, especially at home, is even better. They seem to be peaking at the right time and will be a factor the next five games, three of which are at home. They have to play in San Diego and St. Louis in Weeks 14 and 15. If they take care of their homes games, they are a 10-win team. Welcome to the playoffs Kansas City.. Eagles: Philadelphia needs a fast field and they must play with a lead. When they get behind, their defense is not good enough to go toe-to-toe with anyone. Then they make mistakes, and also it brings Andy Reids inability to manage the game into play.

In my mind, it was the American commentary that became the strangest and most unexpected turn of events. Suddenly, people from different corners of the USian SF blogosphere-people who admitted they never cared about or even paid attention to the Clarke Award before-suddenly had a lot to say and feel about open criticism aimed at what is becoming a corporatized award process- it appearing to be an industry award, rather than the critical award it was originally intended to be- all things they knew nothing about and took no time to comprehend. These people had a lot to say, not because they cared about the Clarke, but because… they could sense that some Sharke criticism might be aimed at their faves. And rightly so.. These people had a lot to say because they are not stupid. They are intelligent people who know exactly why something that should have nothing to do with them might feel a little bit threatening: They know their faves are not actually amazing, that they are actually inherently ...

ACI or autologous chondrocyte implantation is one way to biologically restore more normal functioning acticular cartilage tissue. In the picture above, there is a full thickness, large osteochondral defect in this case of the lateral femoral condyle. You can see the defect hematoma that develops which will lead to the development of scar cartilage. This is the bodys normal attempt to heal this injury, but we know that scar cartilage doesnt function like normal hyaline cartilage and will not last. ACI procedure will attempt to replace this scar cartilage with the patients own articular cartilage cells that have been grown in the lab.

In adolescents and in athletic children who are growing rapidly, pain may be localised to the anterior part of the knee where the patella, the patellar tendon, femoral condyles, and quadriceps muscle form an important unit. Pain in this area can be due to a number of causes, including a patellar tracking abnormality, chondromalacia patellae (abnormality of the cartilage underlying the patella), recurrent subluxation of the patella, and osteochondritis dissecans. These latter two disorders should be diagnosed from the history and radiographs. Physiotherapy and medial patellar strapping may help in anterior knee pain.17 Back pain, which is common in adolescence (8% of 14-15 year olds),18 particularly if the pain is localised in the paravertebral muscles, may respond to physiotherapy once other organic treatable causes have been excluded. Again, it is important to be aware that unrecognised organic causes may evolve with the passage of time and reassessment may be necessary.. After an injury which ...
The Simplicity III procedure is a technique to denervate the sacroiliac (SI) joint by creating a thermal "strip" lesion along the sacrum lateral to the S1-S4 neural foramina and medial to SI jointline. The procedure is usually combined with radiofrequency ablation of the ipsilateral L5 primary dorsal ramus. Though multiple methods have been endorsed to denervate the SI joint, the Simplicity III procedure is a convenient and effective alternative for achieving maximal disruption of nociceptive input from the SI joint. The Simplicity III is a rigid tripolar probe with a sharp-tip that creates an adequate strip lesion that is technically easy to perform. Its pre-curved shape closely approximates the curvature of the sacrum, and it does not require an introducer. ...

The patello-femoral joint refers to a specific part of the knee joint. Medically, the kneecap is known as the patella and the thigh bone is called the femur. The knee joint is composed of three bones - the femur (or thigh bone), the tibia (or shin bone), and the patella (or kneecap). The parts of the knee joint are subdivided into the tibio-femoral joint which refers to the joint space between the tibia and the femur; and the patello-femoral joint which is the joint space between the patella and the femur. Both of these joints (patello-femoral and tibio-femoral) form the knee joint.. The patella is connected to the quadriceps tendon at the top of the patella. The quadriceps tendon attaches to the quadriceps muscle which attaches to the pelvis. The patellar tendon goes from the bottom of the patella to the front of the tibia known as the tibial tubercle. When the quadriceps muscle contracts (shortens), it pulls the patella which in turns pulls on the tibial tubercle, which causes the knee to ...
Pseudocyst of the auricle was first reported by Hartmann in 1846 and first described in the English literature in 1966 by Engel. Historically, pseudocyst of the auricle has been addressed by many terms, including endochondral pseudocyst, intracartilaginous cyst, cystic chondromalacia, and benign idiopathic cystic chondromalacia.

CMR imaging was performed with a 1.5-T system (Magnetom Avanto, Siemens Medical Systems, Erlangen, Germany) using a body and phased array coil. The body coil was adopted for measurements of the relative signal intensities of the myocardium and skeletal muscle because of its more homogeneous signal.. Cine steady-state free precession (cine-SSFP) CMR images were acquired during breath-holds in the short-axis, 2-chamber, and 4-chamber planes; on short-axis images, the left ventricle was completely encompassed from the base to the apex, acquiring a total of 10 to 12 images. Cine-SSFP images were obtained using the following parameters: repetition time 51.3, echo time 1.21, a flip angle of 45°, an 8-mm slice thickness, a matrix of 256 × 256, a field of view ranging from 340 to 400 mm, and a voxel size of 2.0 × 1.3 × 8.0 mm.. For T2-weighted short-tau inversion recovery (T2w-STIR) imaging, a breath-hold black-blood, segmented turbo spin echo technique was adopted, using a triple inversion recovery ...
Functional MRI is potentially useful for the evaluation of brain function in Alzheimers disease (AD). We compared fMRI and perfusion SPECT in 16 probable AD patients (NIH criteria), and 10 normal age-matched controls. The MR system (GE Signa 1.5T) was equipped with an Advanced NMR Systems Inc. echo planar coil. We used an axial spin echo technique, and injected gadoteridol (Bracco Inc) as a bolus over 6 sec at 20 sec into the scanning sequence. Calculation of CBV maps was performed by the method of Belliveau et al. SPECT was obtained with a digital annular system (DSI Inc) 20 minutes after a 20 mCi injection of Tc99m HM -PAO. Each SPECT dataset was superposed (registered) to its corresponding MR image dataset, using a computerized iterative surface fitting algorithm. A polar grid system was used to divide a mid-axial fMRI or SPECT slice into 120 regions. The correlation of mean regional activity (counts/pixel) on SPECT and mean signal intensity on fMRI, assessed with Pearsons product moment ...
The principal techniques available all require tradeoffs between signal linearity, signal-to-noise, spatial resolution, temporal resolution, and artifacts.. Spoiled-GRE methods are probably the most popular and widely used at present, especially at 3T. Typical imaging parameters might be TR/TE/FA = 2/1/10° at 150 ms per section. Due to the low flip angle, spoiled-GRE sequences have the lowest signal-to-noise The major advantage of this method is reduced motion and blood flow artifacts. Balanced-SSFP methods (e.g. FIESTA, TrueFISP) produce the highest signal-to-noise of the major techniques. Typical imaging parameters would be similar to the spoiled-GRE technique but with a much higher flip angle (e.g. 50° instead of 10°). Major disadvantages include off-resonance artifacts ("moiré pattern") and frequency shifts induced by the gadolinium bolus. These features currently restrict the use of b-SSFP sequences to 1.5T and below.. Hybrid echo-planar/gradient echo techniques permit the fastest image ...
Background: First-generation autologous chondrocyte implantation has limitations, and introducing new effective cell sources can improve cartilage repair. Purpose: This study was conducted to compare the clinical outcomes of patients treated with first-generation autologous chondrocyte implantation to patients treated with autologous bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs). Study Design: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3. Methods: Seventy-two matched (lesion site and age) patients underwent cartilage repair using chondrocytes (n = 36) or BMSCs (n = 36). Clinical outcomes were measured before operation and 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, and 24 months after operation using the International Cartilage Repair Society (ICRS) Cartilage Injury Evaluation Package, which included questions from the Short-Form Health Survey, International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC) subjective knee evaluation form, Lysholm knee scale, and Tegner activity level scale. Results: There was significant improvement in the ...

Discussion. Chondral cartilage lesions do not heal spontaneously and may progress to severe osteoarthritis. For cartilage repair, a variety of surgical techniques have been established over the years. Further research led to the development of current new one-step cell-free scaffold-assisted cartilage repair approaches based on the experience with scaffold materials in previous two-step autologous chondrocyte implantation procedures. Commercially available scaffold-based products for one-step chondral cartilage repair have been recently tested in first case series and showed promising clinical outcome in the short-term follow-up; however, medium- and long-term comparative studies are necessary to evaluate the regenerative potential of this new one-step cartilage repair procedure and to demonstrate its superiority over or adequacy to traditional approaches.. Conclusion. This critical review summarises the development from two-step cell-based autologous chondrocyte implantation procedures to new ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cell therapy, biomaterials and other options may enhance cartilage repair. AU - Saris, Daniël B.F.. PY - 2013/3/1. Y1 - 2013/3/1. N2 - There are several articular cartilage repair techniques being used, including microfracture, autologous chondrocyte implantation and mosaicplasty, and orthopaedic surgeons have found they offer some improvement for patients, overall. The physicians who spoke with Orthopaedics Today Europe discussed indications for the major techniques currently used worldwide and noted that results of each approach are somewhat mixed. From their comments it seems that orthopaedic clinicians and researchers are divided over which cartilage repair approaches are optimal and whether developments being worked on now will deliver on the promise of improved outcomes in the future..

PERMANENT PATELLAR DISLOCATION. As will be seen in other areas of pathology of the patellofemoral joint, there are some problems with semantics. The literature contains reference to permanent, congenital, habitual, and recurrent dislocations of the patella without, in many instances, defining what the author means by the term chosen. By permanent dislocation of the patella, we choose to mean that the patella is no longer in contact with the articular cartilage of the distal femur throughout the full range of flexion. On extension, the patella may re-turn toward, or nearly to, the midline, but on flexion, the patella always returns to the lateral surface of the lateral condyle. There are two clinical forms of permanent dislo-cation of the patella: congenital and acquired. These forms share certain aspects of their etiology, clinical and radiologic features, and treatment but remain distinct enough to be considered separately.. Congenital Form. Green and Waugh (58) believed that congenital ...

In general, if you have pain that is of musculoskeletal origin, you may be a candidate for laser therapy. This includes arthritis, back pain, bursitis, tendonitis, heel spurs or plantar fasciitis, neck pain/whiplash, knee pain, rotator cuff strains, hamstring pulls, nerve root pain, myofascial trigger points, chondromalacia, contusions, postoperative pain, carpal tunnel, tennis elbow/epicondylitis, joint sprains, and the accompanying swelling of these areas. In addition, if you have not responded well to other conservative treatments or drug therapy, you may receive positive results with laser therapy. As with most other treatment modalities, results may vary. Injury severity, location, and unrelated medical complications may alter individual protocols..
