Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Rotator Cuff Repair

Rotator cuff tendinopathy is the main cause of shoulder pain and tear of these tendons affects 20% of the population. Although arthroscopic repair leads to satisfactory clinical results, the retear rates varies from 4 to 94%. The main cause of failure after rotator cuff repair is not related to the ...

Phase

Treatment of Acute and Chronic Ligament and Tendon Injuries With Platelet Rich Plasma

Pre-procedure diagnosis: The appropriate clinical evaluation will be dictated by the examining physician. Minimal pre-procedure studies will include plain radiographs and MRI. All patients will complete a pretreatment questionnaire. Patients will be randomized and blinded to a treatment regimen. Method of randomization: Some of the participating subjects will receive platelet ...

Phase N/A

Neural Adaptation After Tendon Transfer and Training in Tetraplegia

Restoring upper limb function is rated among the highest priorities for individuals with tetraplegia. Re-establishing active grasp and pinch strength to the hand can be accomplished by tendon transfer procedures in which the tendon of a strong proximal muscle is surgically re-attached to the tendon of a paralyzed muscle. A ...

Hamstrings X Patellar Tendon for ACL Reconstruction in Soccer Players - RCT

A number of techniques for ACL reconstruction have been proposed and tested, and most surgeons now prefer autografts with the patellar tendon or semitendinosus tendon. The functional outcome after ACL reconstruction with the patellar or semitendinosus tendon has been a recent area of interest. Soccer is the most popular sport ...

Treatment of Early Phase Achilles Tendinopathy - the Effect of NSAIDs

NSAID is effective in short term pain relief in musculoskeletal disorders, but little is known about the long-term effect in early phase tendinopathy, when used as a supplement to treatment as usual, namely heavy slow resistance training and training load reduction. In this study, NSAIDs will be used, which works ...

Phase N/A

NeoPatch Used as Adjunct in Foot and Ankle Tendon Surgery

This study is a prospective, single center, postmarket study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of NeoPatch used as a tissue cover for chronically injured tendons requiring surgical revision. NeoPatch is a tissue covering derived from terminally sterilized, dehydrated human placental membrane tissue comprised of both amnion and chorion. Candidates ...

Phase N/A

Fixation of Patellar Tendon Grafts in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction. Endobutton vs Metal Interference Screws

Primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions with bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) autografts have recently been found to have a lower risk of revision compared with hamstring tendon autografts, and BPTB has again become our graft of choice. Interference screws have been the standard method for fixing the femoral side of a ...

Natural History of Shoulder Pathology in Manual Wheelchair Users

Of the 1.7 million wheelchair users in the United States (US), 90 percent, or 1.5 million persons use manual wheelchairs (MWCs). People with traumatic and non-traumatic spinal cord injuries (SCI) make up approximately 20% of the MWC users, and 12,000 new traumatic SCIs occur every year. While MWCs are immediately ...

Phase N/A

Early Controlled Loading on Conservative Treated Achilles Tendon Ruptures

Treatment of Achilles tendon ruptures includes surgical repair or immobilization in an orthosis, followed by prolonged rehabilitation. Improved rehabilitation regimens still display imperfect recovery, with deficits such as persistent end-range muscle weakness, tendon elongation and incomplete return to pre-injury activity level. The underlying mechanisms are unknown, but are likely to ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Outcomes With Amniotic Fluid for Musculoskeletal Conditions Musculoskeletal Conditions

Medical providers are often faced with patients whose source of pain may be the result of an inflammatory response caused by trauma or disease. By managing the patient's inflammation, the clinician may see improved response to traditional pain management therapy and existing protocols. Also, degenerative arthritis of spinal and extremity ...
