Advantages of creation of holes and removal of air in artificial bone for early bone formation when used artificial bone as a gap filler in open wedge high tibial osteotomy.

Recently, many facilities perform open wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) using artificial bone as a gap filler. However, there are many cases in which artificial bone is used without a clear purpose. We recommend a surgical technique to promote early synostosis between artificial bone and recipient bone due to mechanical support especially in the early stage after OWHTO. At our hospital, beta-tr...

To investigate risk factors for perioperative death in elderly patients with intertrochanteric fracture.

Characterization of an artificial skull cap for cranio-maxillofacial surgery training.

Cranial grafts are favored to reconstruct skeletal defects because of their reduced resorption and their histocompatibility. Training possibilities for novice surgeons include the "learning by doing" on the patient, specimens or simulators. Although the acceptance of simulators is growing, the major drawback is the lack of validated bone models. The aim of this study was to create and validate a r...

Assessment of the degradation rates and effectiveness of different coated Mg-Zn-Ca alloy scaffolds for in vivo repair of critical-size bone defects.

Surgical repair of bone defects remains challenging, and the search for alternative procedures is ongoing. Devices made of Mg for bone repair have received much attention owing to their good biocompatibility and mechanical properties. We developed a new type of scaffold made of a Mg-Zn-Ca alloy with a shape that mimics cortical bone and can be filled with morselized bone. We evaluated its durabili...

Blastema formation and periosteal ossification in the regenerating adult mouse digit.

While mammals cannot regenerate amputated limbs, mice and humans have regenerative ability restricted to amputations transecting the digit tip, including the terminal phalanx (P3). In mice the regeneration process is epimorphic and mediated by the formation of a blastema comprised of undifferentiated proliferating cells that differentiate to regenerate the amputated structures. Blastema formation ...

Palliative radiation therapy (RT) for prostate cancer patients with bone metastases at diagnosis: A hospital-based analysis of patterns of care, RT fractionation scheme, and overall survival.

Prostate cancer (PCa) is one of the most common malignancies associated with bone metastases, and palliative radiation therapy (RT) is an effective treatment option. A total of 2641 patients were identified with PCa and bone metastases at diagnosis from 2010 to 2014 in the NCDB. Fractionation scheme was designated as short course ([SC-RT]: 8 Gy in 1 fraction and 20 Gy in 5 fractions) vs long cou...

Bone effects of binge alcohol drinking using prepubescent pigs as a model.

Although chronic alcohol consumption in adults is an established risk factor for osteoporotic fractures, there is a huge gap in our knowledge about bone effects of binge drinking in adolescents. The aim of this pilot study was therefore to assess skeletal effects of binge alcohol drinking using prepubescent pigs as a large animal model.

Sclerostin and its significance for children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D).

Recent studies have shown that sclerostin, which is a negative regulator of bone formation, could play an important role in the crosstalk between bone and glucose metabolism. The role of sclerostin and its link with glucose homeostasis in type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) has not been yet studied extensively in children. The aim of this study was to assess sclerostin and its relationship between othe...

Osteochondral Lesions of the Knee: Differentiating the Most Common Entities at MRI.

Several pathologic conditions may manifest as an osteochondral lesion of the knee that consists of a localized abnormality involving subchondral marrow, subchondral bone, and articular cartilage. Although understanding of these conditions has evolved substantially with the use of high-spatial-resolution MRI and histologic correlation, it is impeded by inconsistent terminology and ambiguous abbrevi...

Association of high titers of anti-carbamylated protein antibodies with decreased bone mineral density in early arthritis patients.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) has a negative impact on bone that is partly mediated by anti-citrullinated proteins antibodies (ACPA). These antibodies are associated with erosions, and with juxta-articular and systemic bone loss. Other RA autoantibodies, the anti-carbamylated protein antibodies (anti-CarPA), are independently associated with erosions. However, we do not know if they are also associate...
