This study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the OP device for the treatment of nonunion bone fractures and to compare the healing rates of the OP Device to that of autograft.
The current study proposes adding BMP-2 (INFUSE), an anabolic agent, at the surgical site of TPA repair in children with NF1, compared to a control group of patients treated surgically wit...
The treatment of open tibial shaft fracture is often complicated by delayed union or non-union. The objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of autologous concentrated bone-marr...
The purpose of this study is to obtain safety and effectiveness data on the investigational device for multi-level PLF procedures and determine the most appropriate rhBMP-2 dose for use in...
The aim of the study is to compare radiological behavior of blocks of macroporous phosphocalcium as bone substitute in comparison with iliac crest autograft in tibial valgus osteotomy.
The Latarjet procedure for autograft transposition of the coracoid to the anterior rim of the glenoid remains the most common procedure for reconstruction of the glenoid after shoulder instability. Th...
One of the causes of aseptic loosening is marked tibial bone resorption (TR) at the tibial bone-component interface after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). It was hypothesized that insufficient coverage ...
Open wedge high tibial osteotomy is widespread in treating osteoarthritis of the knee. Bone healing of the gap and the necessity of bone substitutes are under discussion. Increasing movement of the os...
The Radiographic Union Score for Tibial fractures (RUST) and the modified version of the system, mRUST, are popular standards for assessing fracture-healing progress with use of radiographs. To our kn...
At least 26% of recent battlefield injuries are to the craniomaxillofacial (CMF) region. Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rhBMP-2) is used to treat CMF open fractures, but several compl...
Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone- patellar tendon autograft.
Rare autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by delayed closing of CRANIAL SUTURES, short stature, ACRO-OSTEOLYSIS of distal phalanges, dental and MAXILLOFACIAL ABNORMALITIES and an increase in bone density that results in frequent BONE FRACTURES. It is associated with BONE RESORPTION defect due to mutations in the lysosomal cysteine protease CATHEPSIN K.
A poisonous dipyridilium compound used as contact herbicide. Contact with concentrated solutions causes irritation of the skin, cracking and shedding of the nails, and delayed healing of cuts and wounds.
Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)
The physiological restoration of bone tissue and function after a fracture. It includes BONY CALLUS formation and normal replacement of bone tissue.
