OBJECTIVE To present preliminary clinical experience with Matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation, a new tissue-engineering technique for treatment of deep cartilage defects, in which autologous chondrocytes are seeded on a tridimensional scaffold provided by a bilayer type I-III collagen membrane. METHODS From December 1999 to January 2001, 13(More)
The goat is a widely used animal model for basic research on the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), but the biomechanical role of the different bundles [intermediate (IM), anteromedial (AM), posterolateral (PL)] of the ACL is unclear. Therefore, the aim of this study is to describe the biomechanical function of the different bundles and evaluate its use for(More)
Degenerative changes in the knee joint after meniscectomy are well known. Although likely to be due to changed biomechanics, there is no evidence in the literature to identify the underlying biomechanical alterations. The aim of this study was to analyse lower limb gait biomechanics before and after meniscectomy. Ten patients who required partial medial(More)
The management of nonunion of the forearm bones is a challenging task. Multiple factors have been associated with the establishment of forearm nonunion, such as the fracture position and complexity, general condition of the patient, and the previously utilized surgical technique. The optimal surgical treatment of a bone gap remains a subject of discussion.(More)
