Conclusions: D-PLEX500 sustained release local antibiotic formulated with bone filler showed promising results in enabling healing of peri-implantitis lesions. The antibacterial component of the bone graft material might create favorable conditions that enable implant surface decontamination and soft and hard tissue healing over a prolonged period.

Authors: Kim JH, Ahn DK, Shin WS, Kim MJ, Lee HY, Go YR Abstract Background: Pedicle screw augmentation with bone cement has been experimentally demonstrated to increase the pullout strength. However, the mechanisms of screw loosening are complicated and interacting. Although vertebroplasty augmentation and fenestrated screw augmentation have been compared in many studies, there has been no comparative study on their clinical effects and complications in real clinical settings. We investigated clinical effects of bone cement augmentation of a pedicle screw and differences according to augmentation methods. Meth...

Authors: Park I, Oh MJ, Shin SJ Abstract For proper treatment of recurrent anterior instability of the shoulder with a bone defect, the defect size should be assessed preoperatively with three-dimensional computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging. In general, the risk of postoperative recurrence of instability is estimated on the basis of preoperative imaging of bipolar bone defects: more than 20%-25% glenoid bone loss and off-track Hill-Sachs lesions have been considered risk factors for recurrence. In patients with a glenoid bone defect more than 20%-25%, a bone graft procedure, such as the Latarjet proce...

Authors: Grinberg SZ, Posta A, Weber KL, Wilson RJ Abstract Advances in chemotherapy, sophisticated imaging, and surgical techniques over the last few decades have allowed limb-salvage surgery (LSS) to become the preferred surgical treatment for bone sarcomas of the extremities. The goal of LLS is to maximize limb functionality to allow for the maintenance of quality of life without compromising overall survival and tumor local recurrence rates. Today, limb-salvage procedures are performed on 80-95% of patients with extremity osteosarcoma, and the 5-year survival rate in extremity osteosarcoma patients is now 60-75...

In more than 30% of dental implant cases, existing bone graft materials fail to achieve the desired clinical results, and another bone graft procedure must be conducted, increasing the overall time and cost of the treatment. That's where LaunchPad Medical could potentially change the game with its new dental bone graft solution based on the company's Tetranite technology. The Lowell, MA-based company won a $1.8 million grant from the Michigan-Pittsburgh-Wyss Regenerative Medicine Resource Center to initiate a pivotal animal study of its technology. The grant was funded by the National Institutes of Health's Nat...

Authors: Waterman BR, Leroux T, Frank RM, Romeo AA Abstract Primary arthroscopic Bankart repair is a common procedure that is increasing in popularity; however, failure rates can approach up to 6% to 30%. Factors commonly attributed to failure include repeat trauma, poor or incomplete surgical technique, humeral and/or glenoid bone loss, hyperlaxity, or a failure to identify and address rare pathology such as a humeral avulsion of the glenohumeral ligament lesion. A thorough clinical and radiographic assessment may provide insight into the etiology, which can assist the clinician in making treatment recommendations...

Immunological memory specific to previously encountered antigens is a cardinal feature of adaptive lymphoid cells. However, it is unknown whether innate myeloid cells retain memory of prior antigenic stimulation and respond to it more vigorously on subsequent encounters. In this work, we show that murine monocytes and macrophages acquire memory specific to major histocompatibility complex I (MHC-I) antigens, and we identify A-type paired immunoglobulin-like receptors (PIR-As) as the MHC-I receptors necessary for the memory response. We demonstrate that deleting PIR-A in the recipient or blocking PIR-A binding to donor MHC-...

Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) causes severe hip dysfunction. Left untreated, 80% of patients experience femoral head collapse, and 65 –70% of patients require total hip arthroplasty (THA). Therefore,...

Kidney International recently published two series of renal allograft recipients with COVID-19 infection including different approaches to maintenance immunosuppression. While Alberici et al.1 report withdrawal of baseline immunosuppression in 20 patients with COVID-19 pneumonia and mainly continuation with methylprednisolone, Banerjee et al.2 pursued more gentle reduction of immunosuppression with mainly discontinuation of the antimetabolite in 7 patients with COVID-19 infection of varying severity.
