Low tibial osteotomy for varus-type osteoarthritis of the ankle.
TLDR
In the ankles which were classified radiologically as stage 2 according to the authors' own grading system, with narrowing of the medial joint space, and in 11 as stage 3a, with obliteration of the joint space at the medial malleolus only, the Joint space recovered. Expand
Low tibial osteotomy for osteoarthritis of the ankle. Results of a new operation in 18 patients.
TLDR
It is concluded that slight overcorrection of deformity by low tibial osteotomy is effective in treating intermediate-stage primary osteoarthritis of the ankle. Expand
Arthroscopic drilling for the treatment of osteochondral lesions of the talus.
TLDR
Arthroscopic drilling for the treatment of medial osteochondral lesions of the talus does not require osteotomy of the medial malleolus or postoperative immobilization; thus, the procedure is less invasive than other types of operative treatment for the condition and it allows early resumption of daily activities and sports. Expand
Long-term results of arthrodesis for osteoarthritis of the ankle.
TLDR
The surgical procedure was modified to prevent the onset of tibial stress fracture and the most appropriate position of arthrodesis of the ankle appears to be in the neutral position between dorsal and plantar flexion. Expand
Disc Regeneration Therapy Using Marrow Mesenchymal Cell Transplantation: A Report of Two Case Studies
TLDR
The intervertebral disc regeneration therapy using MSC brought about favorable results in these 2 cases and seems to be a promising minimally invasive treatment. Expand
Tissue engineering approach to the treatment of bone tumors: three cases of cultured bone grafts derived from patients' mesenchymal stem cells.
TLDR
The results indicate that tissue-engineered osteogenic ceramics might be an alternative to autologous bone grafts. Expand
Sphere-forming stem-like cell populations with drug resistance in human sarcoma cell lines.
TLDR
Results indicate that human sarcoma cell lines contain stem-like cell populations with strong drug resistance, and DNA repair inhibitor could enhance the efficacy of chemo-drugs against sarcomas. Expand
Cartilage regeneration using mesenchymal stem cells and a three-dimensional poly-lactic-glycolic acid (PLGA) scaffold.
TLDR
A novel three-dimensional special poly-lactic-glycolic acid (PLGA) scaffold provided architectural support for the differentiation of progenitor cells and demonstrated successful induction of in vivo chondrogenesis. Expand
Viability and osteogenic potential of cryopreserved human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal cells.
TLDR
Cryopreserved as well as noncryopreservation human mesenchymal cells could be applied for bone regeneration in orthopedics. Expand
Anatomy of the spring ligament.
TLDR
A third component of the spring ligament is demonstrated; this component runs from the notch between the anterior and middle calcaneal facets to the tubercle of the navicular in the lower layer of the Spring ligament complex, lying beneath the cartilaginous surface of the complex. Expand
