Discoid lateral meniscus (DLM) is a morphologic variant in which concomitant articular cartilage defects lead to poor outcomes. The purpose of this study was to quantify the prognostic ability of hist...
This study aims to characterize the deformations in articular cartilage under compressive loading and link these to changes in the extracellular matrix constituents described by magnetic resonance ima...
Use compressed sensing (CS) for 3D biexponential spin-lattice relaxation time in the rotating frame (T ) mapping of knee cartilage, reducing the total scan time and maintaining the quality of estimate...
To evaluate: (1) the feasibility of MR microscopy T * mapping by performing a zonal analysis of spatially matched T * maps and histological images using microscopic in-plane pixel resolution; (2) the ...
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are key regulators of skeletal development, growth and repair. While BMP signaling is required for synovial joint formation and is also involved in preserving joint ...
The purpose of this study is to better understand the reason why people with injuries to their knee meniscus(cartilage) are at a higher risk for osteoarthritis later in life.
There are two cartilage structures, called menisci, in each knee joint. A torn meniscus can be caused by a traumatic injury or aging-related degeneration. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a type of ...
After a cartilage or meniscus repair in the knee joint, the patients experience a pronounced and persistent decrease of knee-extension strength in the operated leg, which negatively affect...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most prevalent cause of mobility impairment and disability in the elderly. Early OA is characterised by progressive decomposition of the cartilage microstructure...
This study will investigate whether the treatment of damaged cartilage in the knee with BST-CarGel will increase the amount and quality of cartilage repair tissue when compared with microf...
A type of CARTILAGE characterized by a homogenous amorphous matrix containing predominately TYPE II COLLAGEN and ground substance. Hyaline cartilage is found in ARTICULAR CARTILAGE; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; and the NASAL SEPTUM.
Registered nurses with graduate degrees in nursing who provide care to pediatric patients who are acutely or critically ill.
Injuries to the TIBIAL MENISCUS of the leg.
A type of CARTILAGE whose matrix contains ELASTIC FIBERS and elastic lamellae, in addition to the normal components of HYALINE CARTILAGE matrix. Elastic cartilage is found in the EXTERNAL EAR; EUSTACHIAN TUBE; EPIGLOTTIS; and LARYNX.
A non-vascular form of connective tissue composed of CHONDROCYTES embedded in a matrix that includes CHONDROITIN SULFATE and various types of FIBRILLAR COLLAGEN. There are three major types: HYALINE CARTILAGE; FIBROCARTILAGE; and ELASTIC CARTILAGE.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
