In January of 2011, the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES) and the Society for Physical Regulation in Biology and Medicine (SPRBM) held its inaugural Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering (CMBE) conference. The CMBE conference assembled worldwide leaders in the field of CMBE and held a very successful Round Table discussion among leaders. One of the(More)
Generally, the surgical procedures employed in the treatment of patellofemoral joint (PFJ) osteoarthritis (OA) aim, either explicitly or implicitly, to alter the biomechanics of the osteoarthritic joint (i.e., improve motion and load transmission characteristics). Because of the mechanical nature of some of these surgical objectives, they can be evaluated(More)
Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of physical disability among Americans, and tissue engineered cartilage grafts have emerged as a promising treatment option for this debilitating condition. Currently, the formation of a stable interface between the cartilage graft and subchondral bone remains a significant challenge. This study evaluates the potential of(More)
As a nondestructive technique, the indentation test has been used, both in vitro and in vivo, to determine the in situ apparent mechanical properties of cartilage. In this study, a simple new algorithm was developed using the indentation creep test, combined with both biphasic and triphasic analyses to calculate simultaneously the apparent and intrinsic(More)
