BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the phenotypic differences of primary rat mesenchymal bone marrow cells (MBMCs) and subcultured cells, the influence of subculture and cell density on the cellular phenotypes, and the difference in the migratory responses of these cells to cytokines. METHODS MBMCs were isolated from 8-week-old Wistar(More)
PURPOSE To compare the morphology of the distal femur between Caucasian and Japanese women. METHODS 30 Caucasian women aged 41 to 84 (mean, 67) years and 70 Japanese women aged 54 to 86 (mean, 70) years who underwent total knee arthroplasty for osteoarthritis were randomly selected. Morphologic measurements of the distal femur were compared using lateral(More)
BACKGROUND It is now recognized that initial stability is essential for avoidance of thigh pain in hip replacement. The initial stability corresponds to an optimal stress distribution of cementless orthopedic implants. Although the relationship between the contour and stress at the fixation site has been analyzed, guidelines on stem design have not been(More)
OBJECTIVE Estimation of appropriate radial clearance of ceramic-on-ceramic total hip prostheses to realize squeeze-film lubrication. BACKGROUND Some clinical results show that severe wear occurs at ceramic-on-ceramic interfaces of total hip prostheses if the design parameters are improper. Appropriate design is required to realize the optimum lubrication(More)
The purpose of this study was to assess the availability of low-molecular-weight (low-MW) hyaluronan (HA) as a cryoprotectant for cellular cryopreservation. To clarify whether low-MW HA is cryoprotective, we evaluated the effect of HA concentration (0-5% w/w) in a cryoprotectant solution on cell membrane integrity after freeze-thaw. A test sample was(More)
OBJECT In 2009, Santoni et al. reported cortical bone trajectory (CBT) as a method of inserting pedicle screws to obtain more solid fixation, and proposed the use of cortical trajectory screws with a more closely placed thread (cortical screws) for CBT. Since the entry trajectory in CBT differs from that in the traditional trajectory, it is unclear whether(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a disinfection method using a microwave apparatus to treat large bone allografts. Heating of a bone allograft is an effective method for the disinfection of bacteria or inactivation of viruses. However, the size of the bone we can treat is limited, and following the popular method of using a bathtub is a lengthy(More)
Recent studies have focused on the association between primary osteoarthritis and dyslipidemia. STR/Ort mice have unique characteristics including osteoarthritis and hyperlipidemia, and may be a useful model for investigating the effect of dyslipidemia on the underlying mechanism of primary osteoarthritis. However, little is known about the hyperlipidemic(More)
It is difficult to apply strong and stable internal fixation to a fracture of the distal end of the clavicle because it is unstable, the distal clavicle fragment is small, and the fractured region is near the acromioclavicular joint. In this study, to identify a superior internal fixation method for unstable distal clavicular fracture, we compared three(More)
During cementless stem fixation, impaction of the stem is occasionally complicated by bony injuries. Small fractures not visible to the eye during surgery or on post-operative radiographs may remain undetected, and the incidence of such injuries may be underestimated. Employing the same techniques as those employed during total hip arthroplasty, we(More)
