Protein-spatiotemporal partition releasing gradient porous scaffolds and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant regulation remodel tissue engineered anisotropic meniscus.

Bioact Mater 2023 Feb 30;20:194-207. Epub 2022 May 30.

Sports Medicine Department, Beijing Key Laboratory of Sports Injuries, Peking University Third Hospital, No.49, North Garden Road, Haidian District, Beijing 100191, PR China.

Meniscus is a wedge-shaped fibrocartilaginous tissue, playing important roles in maintaining joint stability and function. Meniscus injuries are difficult to heal and frequently progress into structural breakdown, which then leads to osteoarthritis. Regeneration of heterogeneous tissue engineering meniscus (TEM) continues to be a scientific and translational challenge. Read More

Suture Hook Versus All-Inside Repair for Longitudinal Tears of the Posterior Horn of the Medial Meniscus Concomitant to Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Matched-Pair Analysis From the SANTI Study Group.

Am J Sports Med 2022 Jun 6:3635465221100973. Epub 2022 Jun 6.

Centre Orthopédique Santy, Hopital Privé Jean Mermoz, Ramsay-Générale de Santé, Lyon, France.

Background: Secondary meniscectomy rates after repair of longitudinal tears of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus (PHMM) performed concomitantly with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) are reported to be as high as 25% with an all inside repair technique. Posteromedial portal suture hook repair is an emerging technique; however, it is unknown whether it confers a significantly reduced secondary meniscectomy rate compared with the current gold standard.

Purpose/hypothesis: The primary objective of this study was to compare the secondary meniscectomy rates of suture hook repair and all inside repair for longitudinal tears of the PHMM performed concomitant to ACLR. Read More

Research on Influencing Factors of Clinical Efficacy of Meniscus Resection Based on Logistic Regression Analysis.

Scanning 2022 18;2022:4606139. Epub 2022 May 18.

Bone and Joint Ward, Joint Logistic Support Force Hospital 910, Hefei Anhui 230000, China.

In order to solve the factors affecting the clinical efficacy of meniscus resection, a method based on logistic regression analysis is proposed. From May 2019 to May 2020, 60 patients with discoid meniscus who underwent arthroscopic surgery in the Joint Department of the Second Hospital of a certain city were selected as the research objects; the surgical methods are divided into partial meniscus excision and plasty and total meniscus resection. The Lysholm function score was used to evaluate the clinical efficacy of arthroscopic surgery for discoid meniscus injuries before and 3, 6, and 12 months after surgery and postoperative application of Ikeuchi score and Tegner exercise ability score to assess age, gender, body mass index (BMI), duration of symptoms, and the influence of meniscus injury types and surgical methods on the efficacy of arthroscopic surgery for discoid meniscus injuries.

Advances in Regenerative Sports Medicine Research.

Front Bioeng Biotechnol 2022 13;10:908751. Epub 2022 May 13.

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

Regenerative sports medicine aims to address sports and aging-related conditions in the locomotor system using techniques that induce tissue regeneration. It also involves the treatment of meniscus and ligament injuries in the knee, Achilles' tendon ruptures, rotator cuff tears, and cartilage and bone defects in various joints, as well as the regeneration of tendon-bone and cartilage-bone interfaces. There has been considerable progress in this field in recent years, resulting in promising steps toward the development of improved treatments as well as the identification of conundrums that require further targeted research.
