Assessing the Resident Progenitor Cell Population and the Vascularity of the Adult Human Meniscus

Surgical treatment of meniscal tears involves either meniscal repair or meniscectomy, which is the removal of the damaged meniscus. Recent studies have reported meniscectomies to significantly reduce the career lengths of professional athletes, while repairs demonstrated higher success more

Reconstruction and Repair of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)

Reconstruction and repair of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are both effective in restoring knee stability following ACL injury. This was demonstrated by applying force to cadaveric knees at different degrees of flexion to simulate normal forces experienced more
