Immune Modulation With Primed Mesenchymal Stem Cells Delivered Via Biodegradable Scaffold to Repair an Achilles Tendon Segmental Defect

this study shows the potency of MSC’s immunomodulatory paracrine secretion and its promise for future cell-based therapies. MSCs have the potential to regulate multiple c

Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy on Tendon/Ligament Healing

In conclusion, ligament and tendon injuries are a prevalent problem, frequently resulting in scar formation and compromised function. MSC treatment can attenuate some of

Primed Mesenchymal Stem Cells Alter and Improve Rat Medial Collateral Ligament Healing

MSC therapy for ligaments and tendons have varying results with some studies demonstrating enhanced healing, while others show no improvement. This is one of the challeng

Chondroblastoma of the Medial Cuneiform Bone in a 32-Year-Old Woman

A painful, expansile, thin, sclerotic lesion detected at the cuneiform should arise suspicion for chondroblastoma

even at age over 20 years. Meticulous curettage o

Chondromyxoid fibroma of the pubic ramus: a case report and literature review

Chondromyxoid fibromas (CMF) are benign cartilaginous bone tumors which are found most frequently

in the metaphyses of long bones. They comprise less than 1% of pr

Isolated scapula fracture: Ice hockey player without trauma

Scapular fractures are generally seen along with other injuries, but in this case we wanted to

emphasize that care has to been taken to diagnose an isolated scapul

Surgical management of bone metastases from urological malignancies: an analysis of 70 cases

Detection of bone metastases in patients with urological malignancies influences the

treatment strategy. Diagnosis of bone metastases may be delayed in urologic ma

Biomechanical Evaluation of a Novel Apatite-Wollastonite Ceramic Cage Design for Lumbar Interbody Fusion: A Finite Element Model Study

Biomechanical analyses suggest that K2

bioceramic cage is an optimal design and reveals essential material properties for a stable interbody fusion.

Comparison of multimodal intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring efficacy in early childhood and school aged children undergoing spinal surgery

Compared to school aged children, both SSEPs, tcMEPs recordings are feasible and MIONM is

effective for early childhood patients undergoing spinal surgery.

Do corrective shoes improve the development of the medial longitudinal arch in children with flexible flat feet?

Corrective shoes for flexible flatfoot was found not effective on development of foot arches.

Therefore, they should be limited only for selected cases.

Grade of coracoacromial ligament degeneration as a predictive factor for impingement syndrome and type of partial rotator cuff tear

Grade 1 and grade 2 coracoacromial ligament degeneration is a strong predictive factor for

impingement syndrome in the etiology of bursal-side partial cuff tears a

Impact of Alprazolam on Comorbid Pain and Knee Functions in Total Knee Arthroplasty Patients Diagnosed with Anxiety and Depression

Alprazolam can reduce postoperative analgesic use and improve knee functions by reducing the pain

threshold, and enhancing overall mood via its antidepressive and

Impact of oxidative stress on early postoperative knee function and muscle injury biochemical markers: Is it possible to create an ischemic preconditioning effect in sequential ischemic surgical procedures?

The biochemical and functional outcomes can be attributed to potential IPC effect. During

bilateral TKA, a 20-minute interval between tourniquets can create IPC ef

Serum and knee synovial fluid matrix metalloproteinase-13 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha levels in patients with late-stage osteoarthritis

Despite the systemic increase in TNF-α levels concordant with osteoarthritis grade, MMP-13 levels are elevated via local manner, with a significant correlation with WOMAC

Platelet-rich plasma versus corticosteroid injections for carpal tunnel syndrome

Platelet-rich plasma therapy has the potential to promote peripheral nerve regeneration

through the autologous supply of growth factors. Therefore, this study aime

Polysaccharide hemostatic system reduces blood loss in high-body-mass-index patients undergoing simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty.

By reducing blood loss and the need for postoperative blood transfusion in patients with high BMI, PHA can be of value as adjuvant therapy in new blood-management procedu

Mechanically induced experimental knee osteoarthritis benefits from anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory properties of simvastatin via inhibition of matrix metalloproteinase-3

We investigated the anti-inflammatory and

immunomodulatory effect of simvastatin on articular cartilage

via the inhibition of matrix metalloproteinase-3

Serum TNF-alpha levels: potential use to indicate osteoarthritis progression in a mechanically induced model

To investigate plasma tumor necrosis factoralpha

(TNF-a) levels as an indicator to reflect the magnitude

of the destructive inflammatory phase and articular
