  • tendon
  • The invention provides graft, prothesis, orthopaedic structures, implants and like body replacement parts which are constituted of synthetic collagen fibers, an embodiment of which is a tendon or a ligament prosthesis, graft or implants. (google.es)
  • 1. A biocompatible, biodegradable graft which is a tendon of improved mechanical properties which comprises aligned cross-linked synthetic collagen fibers embedded in a non-crosslinked and loose collagen matrix, said fibers having a diameter in the range of 20 to about 60 microns. (google.es)
  • 18. The biocompatible, biodegradable graft of claim 10 which has an UTS which is in excess of an autograph or of naturally occurring tendon fibers of rats. (google.es)
  • bones
  • Collagen also has many medical uses in treating complications of the bones and skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Its matrix is mostly made up of a composite material incorporating the inorganic mineral calcium phosphate in the chemical arrangement termed calcium hydroxylapatite (this is the bone mineral that gives bones their rigidity) and collagen, an elastic protein which improves fracture resistance. (wikipedia.org)
  • The superior pubic ligament connects together the two pubic bones superiorly, extending laterally as far as the pubic tubercles. (wikipedia.org)
  • it is a thick, triangular arch of ligamentous fibers, connecting together the two pubic bones below, and forming the upper boundary of the pubic arch. (wikipedia.org)
  • joints
  • Arthritis is characterized by the degradation of cartilage in the joints, leading to limited movement and pain. (wisegeek.org)
  • Collagen Type 2 helps to hydrate your joints and contains Hyaluronic Acid, Chondroitin and Glucosamine. (healthy.co.nz)
  • 1. As we age, the body's ability to make collagen protein slows down, so there is insufficient new collagen for skin, joints and other parts of the body. (healthy.co.nz)
  • Joints can also be classified functionally according to the type and degree of movement they allow: Joint movements are described with reference to the basic anatomical planes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Synovial joints can in turn be classified into six groups according to the type of movement they allow: plane joint, ball and socket joint, hinge joint, pivot joint, condyloid joint and saddle joint. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another classification is according to the degrees of freedom allowed, and distinguished between joints with one, two or three degrees of freedom. (wikipedia.org)
  • Presence of collagen fibres makes such structures and joints strong but less elastic and movable only to a minor extent. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chondroitin
  • NeoCell's Collagen Type 2 is a naturally complete joint supplement that contains glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid which are key components of supporting and maintaining healthy joint function. (healthy.co.nz)
  • Natural chicken collagen Type 2 containing: Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Chondroitin and Glucosamine. (healthy.co.nz)
  • molecule
  • In addition, defects in processing chondrocalcin, a calcium binding protein that is the C-propeptide of this collagen molecule, are also associated with chondrodysplasia. (wikipedia.org)
  • Three pro-alpha1(II) chains twist together to form a triple-stranded, ropelike procollagen molecule. (wikipedia.org)
  • Collagen is used in bone grafting as it has a triple helical structure, making it a very strong molecule. (wikipedia.org)
  • The pro-alpha2(XI) chain combines with pro-alpha1(XI) and pro-alpha1(II)collagen chains to form a procollagen molecule. (wikipedia.org)
  • This chain combines with another pro-alpha1(I) chain and also with a pro-alpha2(I) chain (produced by the COL1A2 gene) to make a molecule of type I procollagen. (wikipedia.org)
  • All of these changes interfere with the formation of the mature triple-stranded collagen molecule and prevent the production of mature type I collagen, which results in type IV osteogenesis imperfecta. (wikipedia.org)
  • intervertebral
  • Here in this image, we can see the cartilage that cushions the spinal vertebrae which is known as an intervertebral disc. (kenhub.com)
  • The use of dual tapered threaded fusion cages and recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 on an absorbable collagen sponge obtained and maintained intervertebral spinal fusion, improved clinical outcomes, and reduced pain after anterior lumbar interbody arthrodesis in patients with degenerative lumbar disc disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • fibres
  • 13. The biocompatible, biodegradable graft of claim 8 which has a wet ultimate strain in the range of about 16.10 2.70, 13.0 2.90 and 14.50 3.50 at strain rates of 10, 50 and 100 percent, respectively, wherein the fibres were 2 days cross-linked fibers. (google.es)
  • Natural Fibers or Natural Fibres (see spelling differences) are fibers that are produced by plants, animals, and geological processes. (wikipedia.org)
  • triple-stranded
  • The substitution of another amino acid for glycine in this chain inhibits the formation of stable, triple-stranded, ropelike collagen molecules. (wikipedia.org)
  • Type I collagen production is inhibited by the inability of the altered procollagen strands to associate and form the triple-stranded, ropelike structure of mature collagen. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • This type provides the perfect balance of structure and flexibility and helps keep tubular structures open. (wisegeek.org)
  • These different types have different structures and functions. (medicalnewstoday.com)
  • The two different structures of keratin have dissimilar mechanical properties, as seen in their dissimilar applications. (wikipedia.org)
  • primarily
  • While used primarily in orthopedic procedures such as spinal fusion, BMP-2 has also found its way into the field of dentistry. (wikipedia.org)
