After implantation of an internal fracture fixation device, blood contacts the surface, followed by protein adsorption, resulting in either soft-tissue adhesion or matrix adhesion and mineralization. Without protein adsorption and cell adhesion under the presence of micro-motion, fibrous capsule formation can occur, often surrounding a liquid filled void at the implant-tissue interface. Clinically, fibrous capsule formation is more prevalent with electropolished stainless steel (EPSS) plates than with current commercially pure titanium (cpTi) plates...

Development of adhesions commonly occurs in association with surgery for endometriosis. Even in the absence of surgery, women with endometriosis appear to be at an enhanced risk of developing adhesions. In the current study, we utilized a chimeric mouse model of experimental endometriosis in order to examine the role of inflammasome activation in the development of postsurgical adhesions. Mice were randomized to receive peritoneal injections of human endometrial tissue fragments or endometrial tissue conditioned media (CM) from women with or without endometriosis 16 hours after ovariectomy and placement of an estradiol-releasing silastic capsule...

BACKGROUND: The B-B Score is a straightforward kinematic shoulder function score including only two movements (hand to the Back + lift hand as to change a Bulb) that demonstrated sound measurement properties for patients for various shoulder pathologies. However, the B-B Score results using a smartphone or a reference system have not yet been compared. Provided that the measurement properties are comparable, the use of a smartphone would offer substantial practical advantages. This study investigated the concurrent validity of a smartphone and a reference inertial system for the measurement of the kinematic shoulder function B-B Score...

An investigation of recalcitrant idiopathic adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder showed good outcomes with arthroscopic capsular release. However, it is critical that future authors carefully define the term "recalcitrant idiopathic adhesive capsulitis" so that we are speaking the same language and that future authors include a control (nonsurgical) treatment group to better determine whether surgery is truly superior to nonsurgical treatment.

Targeted cell delivery to lesion sites via minimally invasive approach remains an unmet need in regenerative medicine to endow satisfactory therapeutic efficacy and minimized side-effects. Here, we rationally designed a pathology-targeted cell delivery strategy leveraging injectable micro-scaffolds as cell-loading capsule and endogenous tissue transglutaminase (TGase) at lesion site as adhesive. Up-regulated TGase post-liver injury catalyzed chemical bonding between the glutamine and lysine residues on liver surface and micro-scaffolds both ex vivo and in vivo, facilitating sufficient adhesion on the pathological liver...

Silicon-contained CNx nanocomposite films were prepared using the ion beam assisted magnetron sputtering under different nitrogen gas pressure. With increase of the nitrogen pressure, silicon and nitrogen content of the CNx films drastically increase, and is saturated as the PN2 reach about 40%. Surface roughness and the contact angle are increase, while the friction coefficient decreased. The CNx film with 5.7at.% Si content possess the lowest friction coefficient of only 0.07, and exhibited the best tribological properties...

BACKGROUND Adhesive capsulitis is a common disabling condition, with reviews reporting up to 5.3% of the population being affected, the burden placed upon individuals and healthcare services may therefore be considered substantial. For recovering the normal extensibility of the capsule in individuals with adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder, passive stretching of the capsule through end-range mobilization has been suggested. Recently, the concept of joint mobilization into angular joint mobilization (AJM), which is rotational joint mobilization with joint axis shift, was proposed...

The events within the foreign body response are similar to, but ultimately different than, the wound healing cascade. Collagen production by fibroblasts is known to play a vital role in wound healing and device fibrous encapsulation. However, the influence of surface nanotopography on collagen deposition by these cells has not been reported so far. To address this gap, we have developed model substrata having surface nanotopography of controlled height of 16, 38, and 68 nm and tailored outermost surface chemistry of amines, carboxyl acid, and pure hydrocarbon...

Adhesive capsulitis of the ankle is also known as frozen ankle and results in marked fibrosis and contracture of the ankle capsule. Arthroscopic capsular release is indicated for symptomatic frozen ankle that is resistant to conservative treatment. It is contraindicated for ankle stiffness due to degenerative joint disease, intra-articular malunion, or adhesion of the extensors of the ankle. The procedure consists of endoscopic posterior ankle capsulectomy and arthroscopic anterior ankle capsulotomy. It has the advantages of being minimally invasive surgery and allowing early postoperative vigorous mobilization of the ankle joint...

BACKGROUND: The critical shoulder angle (CSA) has been reported to be associated with rotator cuff disease and has been suggested as an etiology for cuff tears. However, it is unclear whether acromial morphologic characteristics such as CSA are a cause or effect because all studies to date have been retrospective. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) How often can the CSA be reliably measured? (2) Is the CSA associated with rotator cuff disease? (3) Is the CSA correlated with baseline tear size or tear enlargement? (4) Does the CSA change with time? METHODS: In this retrospective comparison of longitudinally collected data, patients with asymptomatic rotator cuff tears underwent ultrasonography and standardized AP radiographs at enrollment and yearly thereafter during a median of 4 years...

Glycosaminoglycans [GAGs] are known to be present in all animals as well as some pathogenic microbes. Chondroitin sulfate is the most abundant GAG in mammals where it has various structural and adhesion roles. The Gram-negative bacteria Pasteurella multocida Type F and Escherichia coli K4 produce extracellular capsules composed of unsulfated chondroitin or a fructosylated chondroitin, respectively. Such polysaccharides that are structurally related to host molecules do not generally provoke a strong antibody response thus are thought to be employed as molecular camouflage during infection...
