Photo: Vertical tear of the medial meniscus [04/12/2014] A popular surgery to repair meniscal tears may increase the risk of osteoarthritis and cartilage loss in some patients, according to research presented today at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA). The findings show that the decision for surgery requires careful consideration in order to avoid accelerated disease onset, researchers said.

Tissue Engineering: "Cardiac muscle cells or bone cells can be generated from undifferentiated cells"

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/05/2013] Accidents or afflictions can permanently damage tissue. Quite often this means chronic pain or disability for the person affected. Tissue Engineering is a method that promises a cure – by cultivating new tissue in the laboratory. On the one hand, this method produces reliable substitutes for artificial implants. But on the other hand, it is lengthy and expensive, too.Tissue Engineering: "Cardiac muscle cells or bone cells can be generated from undifferentiated cells" - Read more

[01/08/2012] Colorful, elastic, sticky – we are not talking about a new chewing gum here, but about Kinesio tapes. Physiotherapists increasingly use the colorful soft tape for pain treatment. MEDICA.de took a closer look.Kinesio Tape: Well stuck on is half the cure - Read more

Differences of the Nervous System: Knee Injuries in Women Linked to Motion

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[19/04/2012] Women are more prone to knee injuries than men, and the findings of a new study of Oregon State University suggest this may involve more than just differences in muscular and skeletal structure – it shows that males and females also differ in the way they transmit the nerve impulses that control muscle force.Differences of the Nervous System: Knee Injuries in Women Linked to Motion - Read more

Knee Replacement Surgery: Benefits of Local Anaesthesia

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[13/02/2012] Researchers at the Rothman Institute at Jefferson University have shown that local anaesthesia delivered through a catheter in the joint, intraarticularly, may be more beneficial than traditional opioids such as morphine and Oxycontin for pain management following total knee replacement surgery.Knee Replacement Surgery: Benefits of Local Anaesthesia - Read more

[23/07/2010] Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are common injuries to the knee, primarily affecting young people. A research group from Lund University has now shown that 60 percent of these operations could be avoided, without negatively affecting treatment outcomes.Knee Surgery: Many ACL Reconstructions Could Be Avoided - Read more

Elderly: Knee Replacement Improves Balance

[19/03/2010] Total knee replacement (TKR) relieves pain and improves function in patients with advanced knee arthritis, according to a study. The surgery also significantly improves dynamic balance among elderly patients.Elderly: Knee Replacement Improves Balance - Read more

Surgery: Screws of Bone-Hard Biomaterial
