Cartilage lesion of the patellofemoral joint is a common and challenging disease of the knee and an important cause of anterior knee pain. There are many naturally occurring variations in the anatomy and congruence of the patella and femoral trochlea. The purpose of this study was to identify the variations in patellofemoral anatomy and congruency that(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationships of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) femoral insertion site with femoral bony landmarks and develop a new method of location. Sixteen unpaired normal Chinese human cadaveric knees were used. Femoral insertion sites of the ACL were marked with metal wires. Four pairs of bony landmarks were(More)
Thinopyrum intermedium has been hybridized extensively with wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and several genes for disease resistance have been introgressed to cultivated wheat. However, there are very few reports about the Th. intermedium-derived seed storage protein genes which have been transferred into a wheat background by chromosome manipulation. Our aim(More)
To establish a finite element model that reflects the geometric characteristics of the normal anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), explore the approaches to model knee joint ligaments and analyze the mechanics of the model. A healthy knee joint specimen was subjected to three-dimensional laser scanning, and then a three-dimensional finite element model for the(More)
OBJECTIVE To report the clinical outcome of arthroscopically assisted treatment for tibial plateau fractures. METHODS A total of 39 patients with tibial plateau fractures were treated by arthroscopic fixation from February 2002 to December 2005, including 11 patients with bony avulsion of the anterior cruciate ligament and 19 with meniscal injury. There(More)

The aim of this study was to carry out a histomorphometric analysis of calcified cartilage zone (CCZ) and its interfaces between hyaline cartilage and subchondral bone. The study used 40 donated normal human femoral condyles, from which paraffin-embedded sections were prepared after fixation and decalcification. The histomorphology of the CCZ were(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been extensively applied for the restoration of cardiomyocytes loss after acute myocardial infarction (AMI). However, the optimal therapeutic efficacy of MSCs in ischemic heart diseases has been hampered by their poor survival and low differentiated rates. Therefore, the improvement of MSC survival and differentiated rates(More)
Web Service Choreography Description Language (WS-CDL) is a mainstream standard for the description of peer-to-peer collaborations for the participants of service composition. To predict the dependability of composite service processes specified in WS-CDL allows service designers and user to decided whether the process meets the nonfunction requirements of(More)
Adult articular cartilage has a low regeneration capacity due to lack of viable progenitor cells caused by limited blood supply to cartilage. However, recent studies have demonstrated the existence of chondroprogenitor cells in articular cartilage. A critical question is whether these mesenchymal progenitor cells are functionally viable for tissue renewal(More)
BACKGROUND Achilles tendon ruptures are difficult to repair, and the healing rate is low due to this structure's anatomic and physiological characteristics. It is essential to develop new techniques to increase the healing rate and decrease the rate of complications. OBJECTIVE To propose and evaluate a new percutaneous method of repairing fresh closed(More)
