BACKGROUND It is known from clinical and experimental studies that the healing potential of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is extremely poor and that early phases of ligament healing require an augmented blood supply. MicroRNA (miRNA) is a type of small, noncoding RNA that negatively regulates gene expression, and miRNA (miR)-210 is reported to be(More)
INTRODUCTION The important functions of the meniscus are shock absorption, passive stabilization and load transmission of the knee. Because of the avascularity of two-thirds of the meniscal center region, the treatment of tears in this area is hard. Recently, microRNAs have been proven to play an important role in the pathogenesis of diseases. We focused on(More)
BACKGOUND Despite the fact that femoral impingement against the anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) is increasingly recognized, there is no description of morphologic features of the AIIS in hip dysplasia and their effect on hip range of motion (ROM) in total hip arthroplasty (THA). The purpose is to evaluate the bone morphology of the AIIS in hip(More)
INTRODUCTION Reports of dislocation after bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BHA) abound in literature, and several studies have mentioned the factors that are associated with an increased risk of dislocation. However, there is no report detailing the pattern of impingement in BHA and how femoral antetorsion can affect the range of motion (ROM) after BHA. PURPOSE(More)
