Journal of Orthopaedic Research

The Journal of Orthopaedic Research (JOR) is the premier source for advanced orthopaedic research in the world today. Fully searchable, the JOR research articles on musculoskeletal subjects range from microbiology to engineering to clinical work, and the archive is searchable all the way back to 1983. Members may also submit research articles of interest to the JOR editors for consideration in future publications.

Osteochondrosis is an ischemic chondronecrosis of epiphyseal growth cartilage that results in focal failure of endochondral ossification and osteochondritis dissecans at specific sites in the epiphyses of humans and animals, including horses. The upstream events leading to the focal ischemia rema…

A change in hamstring strength and activation is typically seen after injuries or invasive surgeries such as anterior cruciate reconstruction or total knee replacement. While many studies have investigated the influence of isometric increases in hamstring load on knee joint kinematics, few have q…

Acrylic bone cement has a variety of applications in orthopaedic surgery. Primary uses in total arthroplasties are limited to prostheses fixation and antibiotic delivery. With the large number of total joint arthroplasties expected to continue to rise, understanding the role bone cement plays in …

This study compared immediate changes in knee and ankle/subtalar biomechanics with lateral wedge orthotics with and without custom arch support in people with knee osteoarthritis and flat feet. Twenty-six participants with radiographic evidence of medial knee osteoarthritis (22 females; age 64.0 …

Joint biomechanics during stair walking may contain important information on functional deficits in patients with orthopaedic conditions but depend on the stair dimension. The goal of this study was to compare knee kinematics and kinetics between patients with good outcome 2 years after total kne…

Understanding the mechanical loading environment and resulting joint mechanics for activities of daily living in total knee arthroplasty is essential to continuous improvement in implant design. Although survivorship of these devices is good, a substantial number of patients report dissatisfactio…

The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) treatment initiating after inflammation stage on the process of bone-tendon junction (BTJ) healing in a rabbit model. Thirty-six rabbits undergoing partial patellectomy were randomly divided into two gr…

The aim of this study was to measure the magnitude and direction of forces and torque within osteotomized scaphoids within cadaveric wrists during grasping movement of the hand. The mechanical contributions of clinically relevant individual wrist-crossing tendon groups were investigated. Wrists o…

Survival of osteosarcoma patients is currently limited by the development of metastases and multidrug resistance (MDR). A well-established cause of MDR involves overexpression of P-glycoprotein (Pgp) in tumor cells. However, some discrepancies still exist as to the clinical significance of Pgp in…

Development of osteoarthritis commonly involves degeneration of epiphyseal trabecular bone. In previous studies, we observed 30-44% loss of epiphyseal trabecular bone (BV/TV) from the distal femur within one week following non-invasive knee injury in mice. Mechanical unloading (disuse) may contri…

Low-dose irradiation (LDI) exhibits a positive effect on osteoblasts and inhibitory effect of inflammation. Here, we test the hypothesis that LDI can promote osseointegration and inhibit the inflammatory membrane formation in the presence of titanium (Ti) particles. Endotoxin-free titanium partic…

In conventional Radiostereometric analysis (RSA) implants with attached tantalum markers are frequently used, which may be difficult to visualize. This problem can be avoided with model-based RSA (MBRSA), but it is uncertain if this method has the same precision as marker-based RSA. We evaluated …

The present report demonstrates efficacy of fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS) to resect and prevent recurrence of experimental skeletal metastasis in a nude-mouse model of human prostate cancer. Green fluorescent protein (GFP)-expressing PC-3 human prostate cancer cells were injected into the int…

It remains unclear what role reduced volume and cross-section area (CSA) of individual quadriceps muscles may play in persistent quadriceps weakness and more global dysfunction following ACL reconstruction (ACLR). The purpose of this investigation was to establish the relationship between cross-s…
