Physical Characteristics of Retrieved Massive Allografts

This purpose of this study is to measure the strength of tissue allografts that have been in the body various lengths of time.

Glucose Monitoring in Tissue Transfers

The purpose of this study is to determine if 1) a continuous glucose monitoring system can measure glucose levels in transferred tissue during reconstructive surgery, and 2) if glucose mea...

Duration of Immobilization After Rotator Cuff Repair: Its Clinical Impact

The purpose of this study is to determine whether the immobilization period is helpful for the better healing of repaired rotator cuff. The investigators hypothesis is that the longer imm...

Follow Up Study of Tear in the Rotator Culf

Rotator culf tears are common in the aging population and are a significant morbidity source. The common knowledge is that the major tears do not heal and constantly expanding.Still since ...

Arthroscopic Repair of Rotator Cuff Tears Using Extracellular Matrix Graft.

Despite advances in surgical technology, as well as generally good outcomes, repairs of full-thickness rotator cuff tears show a retear rate of 25% to 57% and may fail to provide full return of functi...

Dual-camera technique for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.

An all-arthroscopic rotator cuff repair demands a high level of technical skill and is associated with a steep learning curve. It is well accepted that small rotator cuff tears or partial tears can be...

Architectural and Biochemical Adaptations in Skeletal Muscle and Bone Following Rotator Cuff Injury in a Rat Model.

Injury to the rotator cuff can cause irreversible changes to the structure and function of the associated muscles and bones. The temporal progression and pathomechanisms associated with these adaptati...

Mini-open suture bridge repair with porcine dermal patch augmentation for massive rotator cuff tear: surgical technique and preliminary results.

The aim of this study was to describe the mini-open suture bridge technique with porcine dermal patch augmentation for massive rotator cuff tear and to assess preliminary clinical and radiological res...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Tissue that supports and binds other tissues. It consists of CONNECTIVE TISSUE CELLS embedded in a large amount of EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX.

Compression of the rotator cuff tendons and subacromial bursa between the humeral head and structures that make up the coracoacromial arch and the humeral tuberosities. This condition is associated with subacromial bursitis and rotator cuff (largely supraspinatus) and bicipital tendon inflammation, with or without degenerative changes in the tendon. Pain that is most severe when the arm is abducted in an arc between 40 and 120 degrees, sometimes associated with tears in the rotator cuff, is the chief symptom. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Syndromes and Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed)

A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.

A genus of massive or globular SPONGES in the family Geodiidae, with large spicules at or near the surface.

A mass spectrometric technique that is used for the analysis of large biomolecules. Analyte molecules are embedded in an excess matrix of small organic molecules that show a high resonant absorption at the laser wavelength used. The matrix absorbs the laser energy, thus inducing a soft disintegration of the sample-matrix mixture into free (gas phase) matrix and analyte molecules and molecular ions. In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.
