Examples of some of the tissue transplantation techniques currently available are osteochondral transplantation, autologous chondrocyte implantation, and particulated juvenile articular cartilage
grafts (PJCAT, DeNovo[R] NT).
Full-thickness discs of porcine articular cartilage
were decellularized for 48 hours at 37[degrees]C with gentle agitation.
Unweighting accelerates tidemark advancement in articular cartilage
at the knee joint of rats.
Two of the patients underwent arthroscopy after the transplantation and showed near normal articular cartilage
However, none of the current cell-based repair strategies, including expanded articular chondrocytes or mesenchymal stromal cells from adult bone marrow, adiopse tissue, sinovium or amniotic fluid have generated long-lasting articular cartilage
tissue in the laboratory, UCLA said in a press release.
Quantitative Correlation Studies of Articular Cartilage
using Microscopic Imaging Techniques: [mu]MRI, PLM, and FTIRI.
Classified as an articular cartilage
- and with a composition of collagen type II and GAGs that mirrors that of human articular cartilage
- chicken sternum cartilage is a potential solution.
Therefore, since much of the cartilage surfaces of the knee are curved (eg, the femoral condyles), appearance of the articular cartilage
Fig 6 shows the macroscopic appearance of the articular cartilage
surface of the femoral condyles and tibia in the artificial meniscus group (a) and the control knees (b) of six months after the operation.
Since the hip joint bears the body weight and also animals make frequent use of this joint, the articular cartilage
is destroyed and leads ultimately to severe lameness in some diseases.
BRUSSELS--A carefully designed, 3-month program of rehabilitation exercise and education in patients with articular cartilage
lesions who were scheduled for cartilage repair surgery led to significant improvements in knee function in a single-center study with 48 patients.
Recent studies indicate that articular cartilage
lesions are classified as either full or partial thickness, depending on whether they extend to the subchondral bone.
Subjects: Articular cartilage
lesions: Diagnosis and management of articular lesions in joint pathologies of knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, foot and ankle; basic sciences about articular cartilage
pathology, nonoperative treatment and rehabilitation; arthroscopic, minimal invasive and open surgical treatment options of cartilage repair; nonprosthetic arthroplasty, biologic and prosthetic resurfacing techniques.
STRUCTURE, PROPERTIES, AND FRICTION OF ARTICULAR CARTILAGE
This multimedia approach for the latest techniques in sports knee surgeries is designed to keep orthopedic surgeons up-to-date on recent advances in knee arthoscopy and miniscus, articular cartilage
procedures, knee ligament procedures and patellofemoral surgery.
