The most common long-term complication of joint arthroplasty is loosening, which is mediated by chronic inflammatory cytokines produced by macrophages stimulated by implant-derived debris and eventually bacterial components adherent to such debris. In this study, antiinflammatory interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase-M (IRAK-M) was studied in macrophages(More)
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) recognizing pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMP) play a role in local immunity and participate in implant-associated loosening. TLRs-mediated signaling is regulated by interleukin-1 receptor-associated kinase-M (IRAK-M). Our previous studies have proved that IRAK-M is induced by wear particles in macrophages from(More)
The most common long-term complication of joint arthroplasty is aseptic loosening. The proinflammatory cytokines secreted by macrophages are involved in aseptic loosening. Recently, a novel proinflammatory cytokine IL-17C was reported to participate in inflammatory diseases by synergising with proinflammatory cytokines. However, the relationship between(More)
Split thickness skin graft (STSG) implantation is one of the standard therapies for full thickness wound repair when full thickness autologous skin grafts (FTG) or skin flap transplants are inapplicable. Combined transplantation of STSG with dermal substitute could enhance its therapeutic effects but the results remain unsatisfactory due to insufficient(More)
Both rotational acetabular osteotomy (RAO) and eccentric rotational acetabular osteotomy (ERAO) are effective procedures for young patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip. However, no comparative study of biomechanical changes has been reported following these two procedures. We therefore explored the stress changes on femoral head after RAO and(More)
PURPOSE: Severe burn injury is associated with delayed or failed repair of skin and soft tissue. Following burn injury, impaired tissue healing occurs both at the site of injury and in tissue concurrently injured with, but anatomically remote from, the injury. Thus, the predominate hypothesis is that severe injury provokes derangements in circulating acute(More)
