Basic science of articular cartilage and osteoarthritis.
Articular cartilage is a specialized tissue uniquely suited for load distribution with a low-friction articulating surface. Its compressive and tensile properties are determined by its matrix andExpand

Tendon-healing in a bone tunnel. A biomechanical and histological study in the dog.
Our study evaluated tendon-to-bone healing in a dog model. Twenty adult mongrel dogs had a transplantation of the long digital extensor tendon into a 4.8-millimeter drill-hole in the proximal tibialExpand

Use of Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2 to Enhance Tendon Healing in a Bone Tunnel
This study examines the hypothesis that recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 can enhance bone ingrowth into a tendon graft placed into a bone tunnel. We transplanted the long digitalExpand

Indomethacin and Celecoxib Impair Rotator Cuff Tendon-to-Bone Healing
Background Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are commonly prescribed after rotator cuff repair. These agents can impair bone formation, but no studies have evaluated their impact on tendon-to-boneExpand

Application of Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells in a Rotator Cuff Repair Model
Background Rotator cuff tendons heal to bone with interposed scar tissue, which makes repairs prone to failure. The purpose of this study was to determine if the application of bone marrow-derivedExpand
