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.

Malrotation of the tibial component can lead to complications after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Despite reports of internal rotation being associated with more severe pain or stiffness than external rotation, the biomechanical reasons remain largely unknown. We used a computer simulation model…

Cerebral palsy (CP), caused by an injury to the developing brain, can lead to alterations in muscle function. Subsequently, increased muscle stiffness and decreased joint range of motion are often seen in patients with CP. We examined mechanical and biochemical properties of the gastrocnemius and…

In order to develop a model for fluorescence-guided surgery (FGS), 143B human osteosarcoma cells expressing red fluorescent protein (RFP) were injected into the intramedullary cavity of the tibia in nude mice. The fluorescent areas of residual tumors after bright-light surgery (BLS) and FGS were …

Low magnitude high frequency vibration (LMHFV) has been shown to improve anabolic and osteogenic responses in osteoporotic intact bones and during osteoporotic fracture healing; however, the molecular response of LMHFV during osteoporotic fracture healing has not been investigated. It was hypothe…

Because Chondrosarcoma is resistant to available chemotherapy and radiation regimens, wide resection is the mainstay in treatment, which frequently results in high morbidity and which may not prevent local recurrence. There is a clear need for improved adjuvant treatment of this malignancy. We ha…

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is becoming increasingly popular. Supporters claim that the main advantages of MIS total hip replacement (THR) are less pain and a faster rehabilitation and recovery. Critics claim that safety and efficacy of MIS are yet to be determined. We focused on a biomechan…

We assessed the role of subscapularis muscle denervation in the development of shoulder internal rotation contracture in neonatal brachial plexus injury. Seventeen newborn rats underwent selective denervation of the subscapular muscle. The rats were evaluated at weekly intervals to measure passiv…

To address the need to impact the subchondral bone-articular cartilage interaction for the treatment of degenerative osteoarthritis (OA), bisphosphonates may be used as a means to inhibit the subchondral bone resorption. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the chondroprotective effect…

We previously reported that mechanical stretch regulates Sry-type HMG box (SOX) 9-dependent α1(II) collagen (COL2A1) expression in inner meniscus cells. This study examined the role of the small Rho guanosine 5′ triphosphatase Rac1 and Rho-associated kinase (ROCK) in the regulation of stretch-ind…

Due to the pathoanatomical changes in hallux valgus feet, the plantar flexion moment of the first metatarsophalangeal joint is reduced. Therefore, load bearing of the hallux is decreased during push-off. We assessed loading parameters in hallux valgus feet. Based on dorsal-plantar weight bearing …

Angiogenesis-associated signaling is a fundamental component in the remodeling of the extracellular matrix in response to loading. Genes encoding protein components within this signaling cascade are therefore suitable candidates for investigation into ACL injury susceptibility: namely, vascular e…

This study compared three-dimensional forces in knees containing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft materials versus the native porcine ACL. A six-degree-of-freedom (DOF) robot simulated gait while recording the joint forces and moments. Knees were subjected to 10 cycles of simulated gait in …

Tibial plateau subchondral bone geometry has been associated with the risk of sustaining a non-contact ACL injury; however, little is known regarding the influence of the meniscus and articular cartilage interface geometry on risk. We hypothesized that geometries of the tibial plateau articular c…

Cell viability is crucial for effective cell-based cartilage repair. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of handling the membrane during matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation surgery on the viability of implanted chondrocytes. Images were acquired under five conditions:…

Children with cerebral palsy (CP) often present aberrant hip geometry, specifically increased femoral anteversion and neck-shaft angle. Furthermore, altered gait patterns are present within this population. We analyzed the effect of aberrant femoral geometry, as present in CP subjects, on hip con…
