Biological treatment of the knee with platelet-rich plasma or bone marrow aspirate concentrates

Knee pathologies including focal cartilage injuries, osteoarthritis and ligament injuries are common. The use of biologic agents has emerged as an option for treating these diseases. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has gained significant interest for treating common sports medicine injuries....read more

The Influence of Graft Tensioning Sequence on Tibiofemoral Orientation During Bicruciate and Posterolateral Corner Knee Ligament Reconstruction: A Biomechanical Study

When multiple ligaments are reconstructed during knee surgery, the order of tensioning each graft can affect alignment of the tibia and femur. If the resulting alignment varies from what naturally occurs, issues such as instability and graft failure may...read more

Patients With Borderline Hip Dysplasia Achieve Clinically Significant Improvement After Arthroscopic Femoroacetabular Impingement Surgery Commentary

Hip arthroscopy is an increasingly common treatment surgeons use to get inside a patient’s hip and treat diagnosed pathologies. For example, studies have demonstrated significant improvements in clinical outcomes following arthroscopy in those with femoroacetabular impingement syndrome (FAIS), more...read more

Evidence for the Use of Cell-Based Therapy for the Treatment of Osteonecrosis of the Femoral Head- A Systematic Review of the Literature Commentary

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) occurs due to a defect in the blood supply to the femoral head. This inadequate supply leads to death of the subchondral bone and bone marrow and is the reason for approximately one...read more

The Role of Orthobiologics in the Management of Osteoarthritis and Focal Cartilage Defects

This study talks about newer biologic treatments in use to potentially slow disease progression in patients with knee osteoarthritis. These include hyaluronic acid, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), bone-marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC) and adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells. Believed to affect tissue...read more
