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)

Therapeutic electrical stimulation with BIONs: clinical trial report

A. C. Dupont; S. D. Bagg; L. Baker; S. Chun; J. L. Creasy; C. Romano; D. Romano; R. L. Waters; C. L. Wederich; F. J. R. Richmond; G. E. Loeb Proceedings of the Second Joint 24th Annual Conference and the Annual Fall Meeting of the Biomedical Engineering Society] [Engineering in Medicine and Biology, 2002

We have been using microminiature, single-channel, leadless, RF-powered stimulators called BIONsTM, in three clinical trials to strengthen muscles weakened by disuse atrophy. Two of these studies are aimed at preventing and reversing shoulder subluxation in post-stroke patients. The third study is aimed at increasing knee function in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Results from these studies (a total of 14 patients ...


Correlation of high frequency ultrasound backscatter with cartilage matrix constituents

B. Pellaumail; D. Loeuille; A. Watrin; P. Netter; G. Berger; A. Saied 1998 IEEE Ultrasonics Symposium. Proceedings (Cat. No. 98CH36102), 1998

We have shown in a previous work that high frequency quantitative backscatter ultrasound (US) was sensitive to progressive changes related to various stages of osteoarthritis (OA) and to normal development of rat patellar cartilage. The goal of the study was to identify the cartilage matrix constituents that are responsible for the changes in the echographic signal. To this end, echographic ...


Detection of the functional knee center using the mean helical axis: application in computer assisted high tibial osteotomy

J. D. Gil; E. Stindel; G. Guillard; C. Hamitouche; C. Roux 2004 2nd IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: Nano to Macro (IEEE Cat No. 04EX821), 2004

The aim of this paper is to assess the accuracy of the localization of the knee center, computed intraoperatively during a surgery procedure, by a kinematic approach. We propose a method based on the estimation of the mean helical axis during flexion-extension motion using a 3D navigation approach. This validation study was successively performed on sawbone, and clinical data collected ...


Haptic System to Simulate Minimally Invasive Surgery

S. K. Agili; D. K. Gaddipati; T. L. Stewart 2006 IEEE International Symposium on Industrial Electronics, 2006

The goal of this project is to integrate a haptic device with 3-D models generated from radiological data to provide a simulation tool for arthroscopic surgery. A haptic tool having six-degrees of freedom is combined with a three dimensional model generated from MRI data to simulate the arthroscopic procedure used to treat patients with lesions in the articular cartilage. The ...


Interplay of matrices in cartilage synovial fluid combine under moderate and high loadings

R. K. Saxena; K. B. Sahay; K. Agrawal; S. K. Guha Proceedings of the First Regional Conference, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society and 14th Conference of the Biomedical Engineering Society of India. An International Meet, 1995

The interplay of the constituents of articular cartilage synovial fluid is examined from the biochemical and rheological study on bovine joint. Results show an inverse relationship between the changes in the hyaluronic acid and proteoglycan contents of synovial fluid and articular cartilage with corresponding alterations in the rheological properties of synovial fluid. The study indicates that inter-movement of fluid solutes ...

    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.
