OBJECTIVES: During the reproductive cycle, altered calcium homeostasis is observed due to variable demand for mineral requirements. This results in increased bone resorption during the time period leading up to parturition and subsequent lactation. During lactation, women will lose 1-3% of bone mineral density per month, which is comparable to the loss experienced on an annual basis post-menopausal. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of parity on bone formation in middle-aged mice...

We introduced several variables in an animal model of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction to determine the best parameters for surgery in humans. We divided 130 LYD pigs into two groups depending on whether the femoral tunnel goes through the medial tibial tunnel or through the medial fossa of the knee joint. Each subgroup was further divided. Four weeks after surgery the knee specimens were examined for passive flexion and extension test. No group showed a creep effect. In the biomechanical tests, we recorded maximal strength, maximum load, and stiffness parameters...

OBJECTIVES: We aimed to specifically define the FRAX-based cost-effective treatment thresholds for osteoporosis among people living with HIV (PLWHIV) in Greece and to compare them with those of the general population. METHODS: A previously described state transition Markov cohort model was used in order to estimate the cost-effective intervention thresholds for osteoporotic therapy among Greek PLWHIV employing the FRAX® tool. The model-derived relative risk at which an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio of 30,000€/QALY gained was observed for treatment versus no intervention was multiplied by the average Greek FRAX-based 10-year probabilities for both major osteoporotic and hip fractures...

#11
B Samadi, M Raison, L Ballaz, S Achiche
Three-dimensional ground reaction forces (3D-GRF) are essential for functional evaluation for rehabilitation. A platform path is required to obtain the 3D-GRF. The main shortcoming of these platform paths is that during double stance phases of gait, both feet can be placed on the same force platform causing the need for decomposing the 3D-GRF under each foot. Despite the high number of studies on force decomposition, there is still no method on the decomposition of 3D-GRF based on data from platforms. OBJECTIVE: This study aims to present an automatic method using parametric curve fitting modeling to increase the accuracy of decomposition of 3D-GRF during double stances under each foot...

BACKGROUND: The peritendinous connective tissues can have importance in chronic tendon pain. Recently cytokine TNF-α has been suggested to be involved in tendinopathic processes. It is not known how TNF-α and its receptors TNFR1 and TNFR2 are expressed in peritendinous tissues. METHODS: The objective for this study was to immunohistochemically evaluate the expression patterns of these in the peritendinous tissue located between the plantaris and Achilles tendons and the one located superficially to the extensor origin at the elbow region for patients with tendinopathy/tennis elbow...

OBJECTIVE: Short-term neurectomy-induced disuse (SN) has been shown to restore load responses in aged mice. We examined whether this restoration was further enhanced in both cortical and trabecular bone by simply extending the SN. METHODS: Following load:strain calibration, tibiae in female C57BL/J6 mice at 8, 14 and 20 weeks and 18 months (n=8/group) were loaded and bone changes measured. Effects of long-term SN examined in twenty-six 18 months-old mice, neurectomised for 5 or 100 days with/without subsequent loading...
