Many clinicians believe that a large bony defect of the glenoid must be treated with bone grafting when a Bankart procedure is performed. Various types of bone graft, such as open bone graft, Eden-Hybinnette, J-bone graft, coracoid transfer, and Latarjet, have been used. These require open procedures that are difficult to perform arthroscopically. We(More)
Sliding knots are commonly used in arthroscopic knot tying. The Surgical knot as a hand-tied knot is very secure. We found that the Surgical knot could be used as a sliding knot. We have modified the Surgical knot to include a self-locking loop. A new sliding knot for arthroscopic surgery, the HU knot, is described. By tensioning the loop strand, the(More)
Half-stratum laceration was performed on the tibialis anterior muscle of Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats as a skeletal muscle injury model. Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (BMMSCs), which were derived from enhanced green fluorescent protein (GFP) transgenic SD rats, were transplanted into the injured site. Tensile strength produced by nerve(More)
The aim of this study was to accelerate angiogenesis in necrotic bone by combining vascular bundle implantation and fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) administration. Twenty-four Japanese white rabbits were evaluated in this study. A portion of a rabbit iliac crest bone was removed as a free bone graft and frozen in liquid nitrogen to ensure complete(More)
BACKGROUND Cultured bone marrow adherent cells (BMACs) have been commonly used as stem cells in bone and cartilage regeneration therapy. However, BMACs are actually a heterogeneous cell population, and clinicians might have previously transplanted more fibroblasts or other cells than actual stem cells. The purposes of this study were to (1) isolate immature(More)
BACKGROUND Periosteal transplantation is commonly used for the treatment of articular cartilage defects. However, the cellular origin of the regenerated tissue after periosteal transplantation has not been well defined. The objective of this study was to investigate the cellular origin of the regenerated tissue after periosteal transplantation. METHOD(More)
Previously we described a subcutaneous arteriovenous loop (AVL)-based tissue engineering chamber system, which contains an intrinsic circulation circuit created by joining the proximal ends of the femoral artery and vein with a venous graft. We showed that nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase was involved in mediating(More)
In this study gases of twelve halogenated methane compounds were administered by inspiration to Wistar rats in order to elucidate the relationship between molecular structure of the compounds and their hypotensive effect, and to develop new inhalational circulatory control agents. The correlation between the hypotensive effect of the compounds evaluated(More)
