Decreased synovial fluid pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) levels may reflect disease severity in post-traumatic knee osteoarthritis after anterior cruciate ligament injury

ConclusionsSF PACAP concentrations showed an independent and negative association with disease severity in PTKOA following ACL injury. Local treatment with PACAP may act as a possible adjuvant therapy for delaying the process of PTKOA.

Finite element models with patient-specific geometries and motions and relatively simple material models of tissues were able to identify areas susceptible to post-traumatic knee osteoarthritis. We suggest that the methodology presented here may be applied in large cohort studies.
