Mosaicplasty: A Good Alternative for Restoring Focal Chondral Defects of the Knee

V. Predescu; S. Cristea; F. Groseanu; V. Stoian; C. Prescura 2010 Advanced Technologies for Enhancing Quality of Life, 2010

Management of articular cartilage defects is still one of most challenging problems between orthopedic surgeons. There are some methods which are claiming to restore cartilage around defects but none is capable to restore 100% hyaline cartilage. It is well known that hyaline cartilage has a poor intrinsec capacity of healing and damage from knee trauma or degeneration results in pain ...


Chondrogenic differentiation of human embryonic germ cell derived cells in hydrogels

Shyni Varghese; Paranduangji Theprungsirikul; Angela Ferran; Nathaniel Hwang; Adam Canver; Jennifer Elisseeff 2006 International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 2006

Human embryonic germ (hEG) cells have the potential to self-renew over long periods of time and differentiate into various lineages. Cells derived from embryoid bodies of hEG cells express a broad spectrum of gene markers and have been induced towards cells of ecto-dermal and recently endo-dermal and mesenchymal lineages. LVEC cells express a number of surface marker proteins characteristic of ...

Rotated Hough Filtering for Automatically Distinguishing the Collagen Bundles in the Most Superficial Layer of Articular Cartilage

Xiaojuan Duan; Jian Ping Wu; Thomas B. Kirk IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics, 2013

The structure of the collagen matrix in the most superficial layer of articular cartilage (AC) is particularly critical to the wear and tensile resistance of AC. Disruption of the collagen network leads to rapid wear of the articular surface, which is a major contributory factor of osteoarthritis. Interwoven fiber bundles have been observed in the most superficial layer of healthy ...


A development of navigation system for mosaic plasty using electromagnetic sensor

Mosaic plasty is a surgery that transplant osteochondral grafts for osteochondritis dissecans. In mosaic plasty, cylindrical osteochondral grafts are harvested from normal area, and transplanted to injured area. The one of the most important thing of this surgery is that the graft should be perpendicular to the surface of the cartilage. The navigation system that aims improvement of precision is ...

    Cartilage injuries in children and adolescents are increasingly observed, with roughly 20% of knee injuries in adolescents requiring surgery. In the US alone, costs of osteoarthritis (OA) are in excess of $65 billion per year (both medical costs and lost wages). Comorbidities are common with OA and are also costly to manage. Articular cartilage's low friction and high capacity to bear load makes it critical in the movement of one bone against another, and its lack of a sustained natural healing response has necessitated a plethora of therapies. Tissue engineering is an emerging technology at the threshold of translation to clinical use. Replacement cartilage can be constructed in the laboratory to recapitulate the functional requirements of native tissues. This book outlines the biomechanical and biochemical characteristics of articular cartilage in both normal and pathological states, through development and aging. It also provides a historical perspective of past and current cartil ge treatments and previous tissue engineering efforts. Methods and standards for evaluating the function of engineered tissues are discussed, and current cartilage products are presented with an analysis on the United States Food and Drug Administration regulatory pathways that products must follow to market. This book was written to serve as a reference for researchers seeking to learn about articular cartilage, for undergraduate and graduate level courses, and as a compendium of articular cartilage tissue engineering design criteria.

    Tissue engineering research for bone and joint applications entails multidisciplinary teams bringing together the needed expertise in anatomy, biology, biochemistry, pathophysiology, materials science, biomechanics, fluidics, and clinical and veterinary orthopedics. It is the goal of this volume to provide students and investigators who are entering this exciting area with an understanding of the biologic foundations necessary to appreciate the problems in bone and cartilage that may benefit from innovative tissue engineering approaches. This volume includes state-of-the-art information about bone and cartilage physiology at the levels of cell and molecular biology, tissue structure, developmental processes, their metabolic and structural functions, responses to injury, mechanisms of post-natal healing and graft incorporation, the many congenital and acquired disorders, effects of aging, and current clinical standards of care. It reviews the strengths and limitations of various experi ental animal models, sources of cells, composition and design of scaffolds, activities of growth factors and genes to enhance histogenesis, and the need for new materials in the context of cell- based and cell-free tissue engineering. These building blocks constitute the dynamic environments in which innovative approaches are needed for addressing debilitating disorders of the skeleton. It is likely that a single tactic will not be sufficient for different applications because of variations in the systemic and local environments. The realizations that tissue regeneration is complex and dynamic underscore the continuing need for innovative multidisciplinary investigations, with an eye to simple and safe therapies for disabled patients.

    The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a site of intense morbidity for millions of people, especially young, pre-menopausal women. Central to TMJ afflictions are the cartilaginous tissues of the TMJ, especially those of the disc and condylar cartilage, which play crucial roles in normal function of this unusual joint. Damage or disease to these tissues significantly impacts a patient's quality of life by making common activities such as talking and eating difficult and painful. Unfortunately, these tissues have limited ability to heal, necessitating the development of treatments for repair or replacement. The burgeoning field of tissue engineering holds promise that replacement tissues can be constructed in the laboratory to recapitulate the functional requirements of native tissues. This book outlines the biomechanical, biochemical, and anatomical characteristics of the disc and condylar cartilage, and also provides a historical perspective of past and current TMJ treatments and previ us tissue engineering efforts. This book was written to serve as a reference for researchers seeking to learn about the TMJ, for undergraduate and graduate level courses, and as a compendium of TMJ tissue engineering design criteria. Table of Contents: The Temporomandibular Joint / Fibrocartilage of the TMJ Disc / Cartilage of the Mandibular Condyle / Tissue Engineering of the Disc / Tissue Engineering of the Mandibular Condyle / Current Perspectives
