More Anterior Contact Position in Patients With Fixed-Bearing Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty During Daily Activities Than Wear Simulator.

Front Bioeng Biotechnol 2021 20;9:666435. Epub 2021 May 20.

Department of Orthopedics, Shanghai Jiao Tong University Affiliated Sixth People's Hospital, Shanghai, China.

Bioengineered 2021 Dec;12(1):2155-2163

Key Laboratory of Oral Biomedical Research of Zhejiang Province, Hangzhou, China.

Exploring the influence of different incision designs on bone increment of guided bone regeneration [Bio-Gide collagen membrane +Bio-OSS bone powder (carbonate apatite crystal extracted from bovine bones), Bio-OSS bone meal was placed on the surface of the bone defect and then covered with a Bio-Gide membrane to close the wound] during the same period of maxillary anterior tooth implantation. The 99 patients from the stomatology department were divided into 3 groups: small incision (N = 30, group A), wide incision (N = 39, group B), internal gingival sulcus incision (N = 30, group C). At the different time (immediately after surgery, 6 months, 12 months and 24 months), the width and height of labial bone at different implant margin (2 mm, 4 mm, 6 mm) has no significant difference in comparison of any two of the three groups (p > 0.

Practical strategy to construct anti-osteosarcoma bone substitutes by loading cisplatin into 3D-printed titanium alloy implants using a thermosensitive hydrogel.

Bioact Mater 2021 Dec 14;6(12):4542-4557. Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Orthopedics, Peking University Third Hospital, Beijing, 100191, People's Republic of China.

Surgical resection and perioperative adjuvant chemotherapy-based therapies have improved the prognosis of patients with osteosarcoma; however, intraoperative bone defects, local tumour recurrence, and chemotherapy-induced adverse effects still affect the quality of life of patients. Emerging 3D-printed titanium alloy (TiAlV) implants have advantages over traditional implants in bone repair, including lower elastic modulus, lower stiffness, better bone conduction, more bone in-growth, stronger mechanical interlocking, and lager drug-loading capacity by their inherent porous structure. Here, cisplatin, a clinical first-line anti-osteosarcoma drug, was loaded into TiAlV implants, within a PLGA-PEG-PLGA thermo-sensitive hydrogel, to construct bone substitutes with both anti-osteosarcoma and bone-repair functions.

Treating cuff tear arthropathy by reverse total shoulder arthroplasty: do the inclination of the humeral component and the lateral offset of the glenosphere influence the clinical and the radiological outcome?

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2021 Apr 20. Epub 2021 Apr 20.

Orthopedic Practice Clinic (OPPK), Schuerbusch 55, 48143, Münster, Germany.

Purpose: Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is widely used for the treatment of cuff tear arthropathy. Standard implants consist of a humeral component with an inclination angle of 155° and a glenosphere without lateral offset. Recently, lower inclination angles of the humeral component as well as lateralized glenospheres are implanted to provide better rotation of the arm and to decrease the rate of scapular notching.

Use of a novel Screen-Enrich-Combine(-biomaterials) Circulating System to fill a 3D-printed open Ti6Al4V frame with mesenchymal stem cells/β-tricalcium phosphate to repair complex anatomical bone defects in load-bearing areas.

Ann Transl Med 2021 Mar;9(6):454

Shanghai Key Laboratory of Orthopedic Implants, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Shanghai Ninth People's Hospital, Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine, Shanghai, China.

Background: Repairing complex anatomical load-bearing bone defects is difficult because it requires the restoration of the load-bearing function, reconstructing the anatomical shape, and repair by regenerated bone. We previously developed a Screen-Enrich-Combine(-biomaterials) Circulating System (SECCS) for rapid intraoperative enrichment of autologous bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to enhance the osteogenic ability of porous bone substitutes. In this study, we prepared a 3D-printed Ti6A14V macroporous frame matching the defect shape to provide early load-bearing support and evaluated the efficacy of filling the frame with SECCS-processed MSCs/beta tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) for long-term bone growth.
