OBJECTIVE To analyze the evaluation and treatment of blood loss during total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in the aged . METHODS We retrospectively surveyed the blood loss and the rehabilitation of 46 cases of TKA and 146 cases of THA older than 60. RESULTS In the group younger than 70, the mean total blood loss of THA was(More)
Nanotechnology has emerged to be one of the most powerful engineering approaches in the past half a century. Nanotechnology brought nanomaterials for biomedical use with diverse applications. In the present manuscript we summarize the recent progress in adopting nanobiomaterials for bone healing and repair approaches. We first discuss the use of nanophase(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the significance of osteopontin and nuclear factor κB (NF-κB) expression in patients with knee osteoarthritis. METHODS RT-PCR and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay were used to measure the Osteopontin (OPN) and NF-κB concentration of knee joint synovial fluid of patients with knee osteoarthritis and trauma fractures, and analyze the(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical effect of sodium hyaluronate (SH) intra-articular injection in treatment of degenerative osteoarthritis (DOA) of knees. METHODS One hundred patients (116 knees) suffered from DOA were treated by SH injection intra-articularly once a week for three times. According to Lysholm scoring, clinical signs such as pain,(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical therapeutic effect of the release of gluteal muscle contracture by radiofrequency under arthroscopy. METHODS From January 2004 to April 2005, 86 patients with gluteal muscle contracture were treated by radiofrequency release under arthroscopy.The patients were followed-up for 6-18 months(mean=12.6 months). RESULTS(More)
Heterotopic ossification (HO) is the formation of the bone outside the skeletal system, it is a common complication of surgery or trauma. The abnormal deposition or precipitation of calcium phosphate in tissues may be massive and clinically significant sometimes. Severe ossification often reduce joint function and induce pain. Unfortunately, to date, there(More)
Mouse aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B8 (AKR1B8) has the highest similarity to human aldo-keto reductase family 1 member B10 (AKR1B10), a secretory protein through lysosomes-mediated non-classical secretory pathway. To identify whether AKR1B8 is secreted through the same pathway, we carried out this study. Self-developed sandwich ELISA and western blot(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the possibility of hydroxyapatite/tricalcium phosphate (HA/TCP) matrix scaffold as cell carriers in tissue engineering, and to provide a direct evidence for the resurfacing of matrix scaffold. METHODS Human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSCs) and umbilical vein endothelial cells (UVECs) were co-cultured on the surface of matrix(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the value of color Doppler ultrasonography (CDUS)-guided percutaneous biopsy in the diagnosis and treatment of bone tumors. METHODS Ultrasound-guided percutaneous biopsy was performed in 64 patients who was diagnosed by CDUS. Puncture instruments included automatic core biopsy device and 14 to approximately 18G crude needle. All(More)
