Osteoarthritis

View this topic in
Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease, is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints, including articular cartilage and subchondral bone. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. (Wikipedia.org)

Suppression of Pro-Inflammatory Cytokine Response by Anti-Inflammatory Peptide Release from Reducible Thermosensitive Nanoparticles

Scott Poh 2016 32nd Southern Biomedical Engineering Conference (SBEC), 2016

Activated macrophages constitute key players in the development of inflammatory disease such as osteoarthritis. Treatment of inflammatory disorders using peptide drugs may be effective by promoting anti-inflammatory effects. However, poor bioavailability and potential peptide antigenicity may result in unwanted immune responses thus limit its commercial applications. Therefore, in order to improve the efficacy of the peptide drug, alternative delivery approaches ...


Haptic gait retraining for knee osteoarthritis treatment

Pete Shull; Kristen Lurie; Mihye Shin; Thor Besier; Mark Cutkosky 2010 IEEE Haptics Symposium, 2010

In this paper we introduce haptic gait retraining as a new method for treating early stage medial compartment knee osteoarthritis and for reducing risk of the disease in individuals who may be susceptible. The hardware and software for implementation are presented including rotational skin stretch and vibration haptic devices used to inform subjects of alterations in gait movements. We also ...


Analysis of Vibroarthrographic Signals for Knee Osteoarthritis Diagnosis

Tsair-Fwu Lee; Wei-Chun Lin; Li-Fu Wu; Hung-Yu Wang 2012 Sixth International Conference on Genetic and Evolutionary Computing, 2012

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease, except for the X-ray diagnosis of knee lesions, not more invasive detection methods. Clinical examination of the physician for long-term degenerative arthritis patients, found the knee often with crepitus sound in range of motion, but this is a subjective feeling, can't be recorded and a comparative analysis. in this study, knee sound ...


Automatic Classification of Asymptomatic and Osteoarthritis Knee Gait Patterns Using Kinematic Data Features and the Nearest Neighbor Classifier

Neila Mezghani; Sabine Husse; Karine Boivin; Katia Turcot; Rachid Aissaoui; Nicola Hagemeister; Jacques A de Guise IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2008

The aim of this work is to develop an automatic computer method to distinguish between asymptomatic (AS) and osteoarthritis (OA) knee gait patterns using 3-D ground reaction force (GRF) measurements. GRF features are first extracted from the force vector variations as a function of time and then classified by the nearest neighbor rule. We investigated two different features: the coefficients ...


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 ...

    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.
