Changes of articular cartilage after immobilization in a rat knee contracture model
The objective was to determine the changes of articular cartilage of the knee joint during immobilization in a rat model. The knee joints of adult male rats were immobilized at 150° of flexion usingExpand
Expression of transforming growth factor-β1 and connective tissue growth factor in the capsule in a rat immobilized knee model
Background: Contracture is a very common complication of joint immobilization in daily examination, but its cause is still unknown. A fibrotic change of the capsule is suggested to be one of the mainExpand

Joint immobilization is commonly used for the treatment of joint injuries, but it causes articular cartilage degeneration. The purpose of this study was to clarify the reversibility ofExpand
Imaging features of foreign body granuloma in the lower extremities mimicking a soft tissue neoplasm
Foreign body granuloma is a tissue reaction for retained foreign bodies after skin-penetrating trauma. Detection of retained foreign bodies can be extremely difficult when the patients present withExpand
Joint Immobilization Induced Hypoxic and Inflammatory Conditions in Rat Knee Joints
The purpose of this study was to examine the hypoxic and inflammatory conditions after immobilization in the joint capsule of rat knees. The unilateral knee joints of adult male rats were immobilizedExpand
Chondrogenic and Fibrotic Process in the Ligamentum Flavum of Patients With Lumbar Spinal Canal Stenosis
Study Design. A histological, biological, and immunohisto-chemical study of human lumbar ligamentum flavum. Objective. To analyze changes in the hypertrophied ligamentum flavum and clarify theirExpand
Expression patterns of collagen types I and III in the capsule of a rat knee contracture model
Our objective was to determine the changes in expression of collagen types I and III in the capsule of a rat knee contracture model. The unilateral knee joints of adult male rats were rigidlyExpand
Expression of Collagen Types I and II on Articular Cartilage in a Rat Knee Contracture Model
The purpose of our study was to clarify the expression patterns of collagen types I and II on articular cartilage after immobilization in a rat knee contracture model in 3 specific areas (noncontactExpand
Reliability and validity of the Western Ontario Shoulder Instability Index (WOSI) in the Japanese population
BackgroundThe Western Ontario Shoulder Instability Index (WOSI) questionnaire is a disease-specific self-evaluated measurement tool used for patients with shoulder instability. The purpose of thisExpand
