Pathological processes involving the chondral tissue (CARTILAGE).
'Joint diseases' is a broad term that refers to medical conditions causing inflammation, degeneration, or functional impairment in any part of a joint, including the cartilage, bone, ligament, tendon, or bursa, thereby affecting movement and potentially causing pain, stiffness, deformity, or reduced range of motion.
A condition in which one or more of the arches of the foot have flattened out.
A synovial hinge connection formed between the bones of the FEMUR; TIBIA; and PATELLA.
A protective layer of firm, flexible cartilage over the articulating ends of bones. It provides a smooth surface for joint movement, protecting the ends of long bones from wear at points of contact.
A highly glycosylated and sulfated phosphoprotein that is found almost exclusively in mineralized connective tissues. It is an extracellular matrix protein that binds to hydroxyapatite through polyglutamic acid sequences and mediates cell attachment through an RGD sequence.
The longest and largest bone of the skeleton, it is situated between the hip and the knee.
Lack of stability of a joint or joint prosthesis. Factors involved are intra-articular disease and integrity of extra-articular structures such as joint capsule, ligaments, and muscles.
A number of ligaments on either side of, and serving as a radius of movement of, a joint having a hingelike movement. They occur at the elbow, knee, wrist, metacarpo- and metatarsophalangeal, proximal interphalangeal, and distal interphalangeal joints of the hands and feet. (Stedman, 25th ed)
A congenital or acquired condition of underdeveloped or degeneration of CARTILAGE in the TRACHEA and the BRONCHI. This results in a floppy non-rigid airway making patency difficult to maintain.
Surgical techniques used to correct or augment healing of chondral defects in the joints (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR). These include abrasion, drilling, and microfracture of the subchondral bone to enhance chondral resurfacing via autografts, allografts, or cell transplantation.

Endoscopic examination, therapy and surgery of the joint.
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.

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)

Chondromalacia patellae is a medical condition that refers to the softening and degeneration of the articular cartilage on the undersurface of the patella, or kneecap. This cartilage, which provides a smooth, lubricated surface for joint movement, can become damaged due to various reasons such as overuse, misalignment of the patella, or direct trauma. The resulting damage can cause pain and inflammation in the knee, particularly during activities that involve bending or straightening the leg. In some cases, chondromalacia patellae may also lead to the formation of bone spurs or osteophytes, which can further exacerbate the symptoms and limit joint mobility. Treatment for chondromalacia patellae typically involves a combination of rest, physical therapy, and pain management strategies, such as anti-inflammatory medications or corticosteroid injections. In severe cases, surgery may be required to repair or replace the damaged cartilage.

The patella, also known as the kneecap, is a sesamoid bone located at the front of the knee joint. It is embedded in the tendon of the quadriceps muscle and serves to protect the knee joint and increase the leverage of the extensor mechanism, allowing for greater extension force of the lower leg. The patella moves within a groove on the femur called the trochlea during flexion and extension of the knee.

Cartilage diseases refer to conditions that affect the cartilaginous tissues in the body. Cartilage is a firm, flexible connective tissue found in many areas of the body, including the joints, ribcage, ears, and nose. It provides structure and support, allows for smooth movement between bones, and protects the ends of bones from friction.

There are several types of cartilage diseases, including:

1. Osteoarthritis (OA): This is a degenerative joint disease that occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time. It can cause pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility in the affected joints.
2. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA): This is an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation in the lining of the joints, leading to cartilage damage and bone erosion.
3. Traumatic arthritis: This occurs when a joint is injured, causing damage to the cartilage and resulting in pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility.
4. Infectious arthritis: This occurs when a joint becomes infected, leading to inflammation and potential damage to the cartilage.
5. Chondromalacia patellae: This is a condition that affects the cartilage on the back of the kneecap, causing pain and stiffness in the knee.
6. Costochondritis: This is an inflammation of the cartilage in the ribcage, causing chest pain and discomfort.
7. Nasal septal deviation: This is a condition where the cartilage that separates the nostrils is crooked or off-center, causing difficulty breathing through the nose.
8. Osteochondritis dissecans (OCD): This is a joint condition that occurs when a piece of cartilage and bone in a joint becomes detached, causing pain and stiffness.
9. Synovial chondromatosis: This is a rare condition where nodules made up of cartilage form in the lining of a joint, causing pain, swelling, and limited mobility.

Treatment for cartilage diseases varies depending on the specific condition and severity, but may include medication, physical therapy, surgery, or a combination of these.

Joint diseases is a broad term that refers to various conditions affecting the joints, including but not limited to:

1. Osteoarthritis (OA): A degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage and underlying bone, leading to pain, stiffness, and potential loss of function.
2. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): An autoimmune disorder causing inflammation in the synovial membrane lining the joints, resulting in swelling, pain, and joint damage if left untreated.
3. Infectious Arthritis: Joint inflammation caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal infections that spread through the bloodstream or directly enter the joint space.
4. Gout: A type of arthritis resulting from the buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints, typically affecting the big toe and characterized by sudden attacks of severe pain, redness, and swelling.
5. Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA): An inflammatory joint disease associated with psoriasis, causing symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints and surrounding tissues.
6. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA): A group of chronic arthritis conditions affecting children, characterized by joint inflammation, pain, and stiffness.
7. Ankylosing Spondylitis: A form of arthritis primarily affecting the spine, causing inflammation, pain, and potential fusion of spinal vertebrae.
8. Bursitis: Inflammation of the fluid-filled sacs (bursae) that cushion joints, leading to pain and swelling.
9. Tendinitis: Inflammation or degeneration of tendons, which connect muscles to bones, often resulting in pain and stiffness near joints.

These conditions can impact the function and mobility of affected joints, causing discomfort and limiting daily activities. Proper diagnosis and treatment are essential for managing joint diseases and preserving joint health.

Medical professionals define "flatfoot" or "pes planus" as a postural deformity in which the arch of the foot collapses, leading to the entire sole of the foot coming into complete or near-complete contact with the ground. This condition can be classified as flexible (the arch reappears when the foot is not bearing weight) or rigid (the arch does not reappear). Flatfoot can result from various factors such as genetics, injury, aging, or certain medical conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and cerebral palsy. In some cases, flatfoot may not cause any symptoms or problems; however, in other instances, it can lead to pain, discomfort, or difficulty walking. Treatment options for flatfoot depend on the severity of the condition and associated symptoms and may include physical therapy, orthotics, bracing, or surgery.

The knee joint, also known as the tibiofemoral joint, is the largest and one of the most complex joints in the human body. It is a synovial joint that connects the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia). The patella (kneecap), which is a sesamoid bone, is located in front of the knee joint and helps in the extension of the leg.

The knee joint is made up of three articulations: the femorotibial joint between the femur and tibia, the femoropatellar joint between the femur and patella, and the tibiofibular joint between the tibia and fibula. These articulations are surrounded by a fibrous capsule that encloses the synovial membrane, which secretes synovial fluid to lubricate the joint.

The knee joint is stabilized by several ligaments, including the medial and lateral collateral ligaments, which provide stability to the sides of the joint, and the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments, which prevent excessive forward and backward movement of the tibia relative to the femur. The menisci, which are C-shaped fibrocartilaginous structures located between the femoral condyles and tibial plateaus, also help to stabilize the joint by absorbing shock and distributing weight evenly across the articular surfaces.

The knee joint allows for flexion, extension, and a small amount of rotation, making it essential for activities such as walking, running, jumping, and sitting.

Articular cartilage is the smooth, white tissue that covers the ends of bones where they come together to form joints. It provides a cushion between bones and allows for smooth movement by reducing friction. Articular cartilage also absorbs shock and distributes loads evenly across the joint, protecting the bones from damage. It is avascular, meaning it does not have its own blood supply, and relies on the surrounding synovial fluid for nutrients. Over time, articular cartilage can wear down or become damaged due to injury or disease, leading to conditions such as osteoarthritis.

Integrin-binding sialoprotein (IBSP) is a non-collagenous protein found in bones and teeth. It is also known as bone sialoprotein II or acidic glycoprotein 34. IBSP plays a role in the regulation of biomineralization, which is the process by which minerals are deposited in biological tissues.

IBSP contains several functional domains that allow it to interact with other proteins and molecules. One such domain is an arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) motif, which can bind to integrin receptors on the surface of cells. This interaction helps regulate the attachment and behavior of cells in bone tissue.

IBSP also contains a large number of sialic acid residues, which give it its name and contribute to its negative charge. These residues may play a role in protecting the protein from degradation and helping it interact with other molecules in the extracellular matrix.

Overall, IBSP is an important component of bone tissue and plays a key role in regulating the formation and maintenance of bones and teeth.

The femur is the medical term for the thigh bone, which is the longest and strongest bone in the human body. It connects the hip bone to the knee joint and plays a crucial role in supporting the weight of the body and allowing movement during activities such as walking, running, and jumping. The femur is composed of a rounded head, a long shaft, and two condyles at the lower end that articulate with the tibia and patella to form the knee joint.

Joint instability is a condition characterized by the loss of normal joint function and increased risk of joint injury due to impaired integrity of the supporting structures, such as ligaments, muscles, or cartilage. This can result in excessive movement or laxity within the joint, leading to decreased stability and increased susceptibility to dislocations or subluxations. Joint instability may cause pain, swelling, and limited range of motion, and it can significantly impact a person's mobility and quality of life. It is often caused by trauma, degenerative conditions, or congenital abnormalities and may require medical intervention, such as physical therapy, bracing, or surgery, to restore joint stability.

Collateral ligaments are a pair of strong bands of tissue located on the lateral (outer) and medial (inner) sides of joints, particularly in the knee and ankle. They help to stabilize and limit the side-to-side movement of the joint by preventing excessive abnormal displacement or dislocation.

In the knee, there are two collateral ligaments:

1. Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL): It runs along the inner side of the knee and connects the femur (thigh bone) to the tibia (shin bone). The MCL helps to prevent excessive inward movement or valgus stress of the knee joint.
2. Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL): It is located on the outer side of the knee and connects the femur to the fibula (the smaller bone in the lower leg). The LCL helps to prevent excessive outward movement or varus stress of the knee joint.

In the ankle, there are also two collateral ligaments:

1. Deltoid Ligament: It is a group of ligaments located on the inner side of the ankle and connects the tibia to the talus (ankle bone) and calcaneus (heel bone). The deltoid ligament helps to prevent excessive inward movement or eversion of the ankle joint.
2. Anterior Talofibular Ligament: It is a ligament located on the outer side of the ankle, connecting the talus to the fibula. The anterior talofibular ligament helps to prevent excessive outward movement or inversion of the ankle joint.

Tracheobronchomalacia is a medical condition that refers to the abnormal softening and weakness of the tracheal and bronchial walls, leading to their collapse or narrowing during breathing, particularly during expiration. This collapse can cause symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing, and recurrent respiratory infections. The condition can be congenital or acquired, with common causes including aging, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and long-term intubation. In severe cases, tracheobronchomalacia may require surgical intervention to stabilize the airway and improve breathing.

Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to restore the function or relieve pain in a joint. Subchondral arthroplasty specifically refers to a type of arthroplasty that involves the removal and replacement of damaged or diseased subchondral bone, which is the layer of bone directly beneath the articular cartilage in a joint.

In this procedure, the surgeon removes the damaged or necrotic subchondral bone and replaces it with a graft or synthetic material to restore the smooth, cushioned surface of the joint. This can help to relieve pain, improve mobility, and prevent further degeneration of the joint.

Subchondral arthroplasty may be recommended for patients with advanced osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, or other conditions that affect the subchondral bone. It is typically considered as a last resort when other treatments have failed to provide adequate relief.

I apologize for any confusion, but "baseball" is not a medical term. It is a sport that involves two teams of nine players each trying to score runs by hitting a ball with a bat and running around four bases on a field. If you have any questions about medical terminology or concepts, I would be happy to help clarify those for you.

Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure where an orthopedic surgeon uses an arthroscope (a thin tube with a light and camera on the end) to diagnose and treat problems inside a joint. The surgeon makes a small incision, inserts the arthroscope into the joint, and then uses the attached camera to view the inside of the joint on a monitor. They can then insert other small instruments through additional incisions to repair or remove damaged tissue.

Arthroscopy is most commonly used for joints such as the knee, shoulder, hip, ankle, and wrist. It offers several advantages over traditional open surgery, including smaller incisions, less pain and bleeding, faster recovery time, and reduced risk of infection. The procedure can be used to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, including torn ligaments or cartilage, inflamed synovial tissue, loose bone or cartilage fragments, and joint damage caused by arthritis.

Knee injuries refer to damages or harm caused to the structures surrounding or within the knee joint, which may include the bones (femur, tibia, and patella), cartilage (meniscus and articular cartilage), ligaments (ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL), tendons (patellar and quadriceps), muscles, bursae, and other soft tissues. These injuries can result from various causes, such as trauma, overuse, degeneration, or sports-related activities. Symptoms may include pain, swelling, stiffness, instability, reduced range of motion, and difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected knee. Common knee injuries include fractures, dislocations, meniscal tears, ligament sprains or ruptures, and tendonitis. Proper diagnosis and treatment are crucial to ensure optimal recovery and prevent long-term complications.

The patellar ligament, also known as the patellar tendon, is a strong band of tissue that connects the bottom part of the kneecap (patella) to the top part of the shinbone (tibia). This ligament plays a crucial role in enabling the extension and straightening of the leg during activities such as walking, running, and jumping. Injuries to the patellar ligament, such as tendonitis or tears, can cause pain and difficulty with mobility.
