Bacteria antibiotic resistance: New challenges and opportunities for implant‐associated orthopedic infections

  •  22-32
  •  19 July 2017

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Most of the known urgent, serious, and concerning antibiotic resistant microorganisms have been increasingly reported in orthopedic implant-associated infections. Different antibiotic-resistant profiles have been identified between older and younger patients, and between patients with and without orthopedic implants. Overall, orthopedic infections caused by antibiotic-resistant microorganisms have a less than optimal clinical outcome compared to those caused by antibiotic susceptible microorganisms. Various opportunities and challenges have emerged in limiting antibiotic resistance.

Cellular biology of fracture healing

  •  35-50
  •  28 October 2018

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

Advances in transgenic and gene-targeted mice have enabled tissue and cell-specific investigation of skeletal regeneration. While genetically modified animals offer incredible insights into the temporal and spatial importance of various molecules, the complexity and rapidity of healing renders studies of regenerative biology challenging. Herein, cells and extracellular mediators that play a key role in bone healing are reviewed. We will focus on recent studies that explore the origins and fates of various cells in the fracture environment.

Anabolic steroids and tendons: A review of their mechanical, structural, and biologic effects

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

A systematic review of the literature was conducted to identify studies that have investigated the mechanical, structural, or biologic effects that androgenic-anabolic steroids (AAS) have on tendons. Future studies investigating the use of AAS as a possible treatment for tendon injury/pathology are supported by reports suggesting that AAS may counteract the irreparable structural/functional changes that occur in the musculotendinous unit following rotator cuff tears, as well as studies suggesting the purported deleterious effects on tendon may be transient.
