OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the mode of failure and biomechanical characteristics of Ti-6Al-4V anchors biomimetically coated with calcium phosphate (CaP) for soft tissue fixation to bone in an animal model. METHODS The current study included 14 adult New Zealand white rabbits equally divided into two groups. Calcium phosphate-coated(More)
The main function of the meniscus is load distribution and therefore stresses reduction in the knee joint, thereby frequently occurring cartilage damage. The meniscus leads to variety experimental and clinical research due to important function of the human body.
OBJECTIVES This study aims to examine the motion and stability of the adjacent segment following rigid fixation of the lumbar spine. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study included 17 fresh-frozen lamb lumbar spines (including the sacrum to T12). Biomechanical testing was performed using an axial compression testing machine. Axial compression was applied to all(More)
BACKGROUND Achilles tendon ruptures are characterized by a long recovery period, high re-rupture rate and late return to work. To overcome these difficulties and augment tendon repair, many agents have been used. AIMS To determine the effect of autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures in rabbits. STUDY DESIGN(More)
The purpose of the present study concerning high-strength sutures was to determine whether increasing the number of locking loops with different size sutures or decreasing the suture size with increased suture strands would have any influence on the strength of Achilles tendon repair. A total of 32 fresh bovine Achilles tendon specimens were randomly(More)
To investigate the effect of PLIF and after rigid fixation on adjacent segment and subjacent mechanical instability moreover under loading adjacent and subjacent segment mechanical behavior. Eleven fresh-frozen lamb lumbar spines (Sacrum-T12) were loaded, in axial, flexion-extension, right-left bending directions. All specimens were tested intact and after(More)
The use of hybrid Ilizarov models around femoral area is gaining clinical popularity lately. Hybrid systems show different mechanical properties. The purpose of this report is to examine the stiffness characteristics of the C-arch and half-pins on the hybrid Ilizarov fixators. Eight models that included standard Ilizarov and hybrid models were applied to(More)

The current study reports the biocompatibility and biomechanical characteristics of loofah-based scaffolds combined with hydroxyapatite (HA), cellulose, poly-l-lactic acid (PLLA) with chondrocytes-like cells. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) micrographs of the scaffolds showed that the addition of PLLA usually resulted in an increase in cell's attachment(More)
Tension band wiring for patellar fractures is common, but some recent reports refer to disadvantages of this approach. Our anatomical and biomechanical study focused on use of tension band techniques in patellar fractures. The anatomy of the patella and tendon insertion was examined with knee magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and correlated with the(More)
