A Pivotal Study to Assess the InSpace™ Device for Treatment of Full Thickness Massive Rotator Cuff Tears

A pivotal study to assess the safety and effectiveness of the InSpace™ device implantation in comparison to surgical repair of full thickness Massive Rotator Cuff Tear (MRCT).

Efficacy of Microfragmented Lipoaspirate Tissue in Arthroscopic Rotator Cuff Repair

Increasing the success rate of rotator cuff healing remains a tremendous challenge for orthopedic surgeons, which encourage the development of new biological therapies. Among many approach...

Buccal Mucosa Healing Randomized Controlled Trial

Prior studies have been performed to understand the optimal way to minimize the morbidity rate of buccal mucosa. While some studies have reported primary closure to be inferior to healing ...

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.

A Comparison of Two Adjunctive Treatments in Arthroscopic Cuff Repair

This Clinical Trial is being conducted to study two adjunctive treatments for rotator cuff repair; soft tissue and bone trephination. "Trephination" is a procedure that involves making sm...

Muscle atrophy and fatty infiltration in rotator cuff tears: Can surgery stop muscular degenerative changes?

Rotator cuff tears are closely related with muscle atrophy and fatty infiltration and both affect healing after surgical treatment. The aim of this study was to compare surgical versus conservative ma...

Lysophosphatidic acid-induced RhoA signaling and prolonged macrophage infiltration worsens fibrosis and fatty infiltration following rotator cuff tears.

Previous studies have suggested that macrophage-mediated chronic inflammation is involved in the development of rotator cuff muscle atrophy and degeneration following massive tendon tears. Increased R...

Massive Rotator Cuff Tears: Trends in Surgical Management.

Compared with smaller tears, massive rotator cuff tears present significant clinical management dilemmas for the treating surgeon because they are often fraught with structural failure and poor outcom...

Outcomes of Combined Bone Marrow Stimulation and Patch Augmentation for Massive Rotator Cuff Tears.

The high failure rate after surgical repair of massive rotator cuff tears is a consistent problem.

Effective healing of chronic rotator cuff injury using recombinant bone morphogenetic protein-2 coated dermal patch in vivo.

Biologic augmentation for rotator cuff repair is a challenging treatment in patients with chronic large, massive, and irreparable rotator cuff injuries. Particularly, the use of an extracellular matri...

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.
