Femoroacetabular acetabular impingement syndrome consists of abnormal hip joint morphology resulting in painful hip joint impingement. Hip arthroscopy corrects the abnormal morphology and reduces clinical symptoms associated with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome yet the effects of hip arthroscopy on gait mechanics and cartilage health are not well understood.

Although temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthroscopy outcomes have been well documented in the adult population, conclusive data are lacking for pediatric patients with TMJ disorders. The aim of the pre...
Articular cartilage focal defects are common soft tissue injuries potentially linked to osteoarthritis development. Although several defect characteristics likely contribute to osteoarthritis, their r...
Articular cartilage is formed at the end of epiphyses in the synovial joint cavity and permanently contributes to the smooth movement of synovial joints. Most skeletal elements develop from transient ...
To investigate the feasibility of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy for evaluation of human articular cartilage biomechanical properties during arthroscopy.
Links between pain and joint degradation are poorly understood. We investigated the role of activation of Toll-like receptors (TLR) by cartilage metabolites in initiating and maintaining the inflammat...
This study evaluates the addition of hyaluronic acid to temporomandibular joint arthroscopy in the treatment of internal derangements in adults. A participants group will receive temporoma...
Many patients suffer from a disorder known as temporomandibular joint dysfunction. This disorder has jaw joint pain and limited function as key elements. Many treatments have been advocate...
It remains unknown if a concomitant arthroscopic knee debridement would increase the benefits of surgery (quality of life and functional ability) for young active patients with medial comp...
Hip dysplasia is a developmental abnormality of the acetabulum (hip socket) that causes abnormal stresses inside the hip joint and leads to painful arthritis at a young age. Many patients ...
Hip arthroscopy is a rapidly evolving procedure that has seen an exponential increase in the number of cases performed yearly. With hip arthroscopy still in its infancy in relation to kne...
Endoscopic examination, therapy and surgery of the joint.
The branch of physics which deals with the motions of material bodies, including kinematics, dynamics, and statics. When the laws of mechanics are applied to living structures, as to the locomotor system, it is referred to as BIOMECHANICS. (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A double gliding joint formed by the CLAVICLE, superior and lateral parts of the manubrium sterni at the clavicular notch, and the cartilage of the first rib.
A protective layer of firm, flexible cartilage over the articulating ends of bones. It provides a smooth surface for joint movement, protecting the ends of long bones from wear at points of contact.
A degenerative joint disease involving the SPINE. It is characterized by progressive deterioration of the spinal articular cartilage (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR), usually with hardening of the subchondral bone and outgrowth of bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE).
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 ...
