Minimally invasive joint replacement has become one of the hottest topics in the orthopedic world. In the case of the knee, however, this concept has been widely misunderstood. All too frequently it is taken to mean keyhole surgery in which traditional components are implanted with a shorter surgical time. Such an approach in fact has few benefits and various possible dangers. In this book, international experts discuss truly minimally invasive knee reconstruction techniques that involve tissue-sparing surgery and small implants and permit preservation of both the anterior and the posterior cruciate ligament. These techniques have the key advantage of respecting the physiological joint biomechanics. They also entail minimal removal of bone tissue from the tibia and only a small skin incision that avoids damage to the extensor apparatus. All of the most innovative techniques used in uni- and bicompartmental knee reconstruction are covered in detail, including computer-assisted procedures. Long-term results are reported, and pitfalls, highlighted. The reader will learn how, with careful selection of patients and rigorous surgical technique, compartmental reconstruction offers a valid alternative to total knee replacement.

​This book, published in cooperation with ESSKA, provides an exhaustive review of the meniscus and its pathology, covering all aspects from the basic science of the normal meniscus to clinical and imaging diagnosis, meniscus repair and meniscectomy, outcomes and complications, postoperative management, and emerging technologies. The book opens by examining in depth aspects such as anatomy, histology, physiology, biomechanics, and physiopathology. Clear guidance is offered on arthroscopy and the classification of meniscal lesions, with consideration of the full range of meniscal pathology, including traumatic lesions, degenerative lesions, root tears, meniscal cysts, and congenital lesions. Choice of treatment in different settings is explained, and the various surgical techniques – meniscectomy, meniscal repair, and reconstruction with allografts – are described in detail with the aid of accompanying videos and with presentation of long-term results. The concluding chapter takes a look into the future of meniscus reconstruction, for example through regeneration using mesenchymal stem cells.

Osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee, characterized primarily by pain and cartilage degeneration, is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, carrying with it a substantial economic cost and reduced quality of life. The risk factors for knee OA include aging, obesity, and traumatic knee injury. OA is particularly difficult to study because its symptoms, such as pain, stiffness, and swelling, are relatively absent until the disease has already reached an advanced state. Risk factors for OA include aging, obesity, and traumatic joint injury. As one of the most common traumatic knee injuries, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear provides a valuable opportunity to study factors influencing the initiation of OA in an at-risk population. Surgical ACL reconstruction (ACLR) has managed to improve patient outcomes by stabilizing the knee and allowing return to physical activity, but has not reduced this risk of post-traumatic OA where roughly 50% of patients develop OA within 10-15 years after injury. Existing research suggests that this is likely a result of perturbations to the pre-injury knee mechanics that negatively interact with the post-injury biology and structure of the joint to disrupt cartilage homeostasis leading to premature OA in about half of patients. Lack of understanding concerning the nature of these interactions has been a critical barrier to identifying which patients will develop OA. Thus, there is a need for improved understanding of OA risk after ACLR to inform early OA risk assessment (before symptoms) that will support the development of intervention strategies to delay or prevent OA onset. This dissertation provides insight into the interaction between mechanical, biological, and structural factors on the risk of OA following ACL injury and reconstruction, and is focused on three studies completed on patients following ACLR examining relationships between these risk factors. The first study examines changes in knee kinematics occurring from 2 to 4 years after ACLR and relationships to patient reported outcomes much later at 8 years after surgery. The results suggest that a subset (approximately 50%) of patients develop increasingly abnormal kinematics that may contribute to and provide early warning of deteriorating knee function years before the onset of clinical symptoms. The second study demonstrates a relationship between cartilage matrix changes measured using a novel quantitative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique and knee loading parameters known to affect OA progression at only 2 years after ACLR when the articular cartilage appeared healthy on standard clinical MRI. These results suggest that this new MRI metric may be showing early cartilage pathology that is undetectable using standard MRI methods. The final study investigates the biological response to knee loading through a walking exercise and cartilage matrix changes assessed by novel quantitative MRI at 2 years after ACLR. The results show a higher synthetic state in some patients suggestive of a repair response. However, the observed correlations with cartilage matrix changes detectable by quantitative MRI and knee loading suggest that this repair response may be related to a higher risk for future knee OA. All three studies demonstrated potential markers that separated patients into divergent groupings that suggest greater or lesser risk for developing knee OA consistent with the natural history where approximately 50% of individuals with ACL injury develop premature knee OA. The studies provide promising markers for the early detection of post-traumatic OA after ACLR and identify potential targets for intervention. It is important to note that assessing the interaction between multiple markers was an important factor in identifying the sensitivity of specific markers that would not be possible when evaluating markers independently. As such, the results of this thesis also demonstrated the importance of interdisciplinary research in evaluating biomarkers of OA risk in relationship to the complex interactions between mechanical, biological, and structural components in maintaining joint homeostasis. This knowledge will aid in the future development of personalized treatment strategies to delay or prevent the onset of post-traumatic OA after ACLR.

are then selected and must meet the general 'biocompatibility' require ments. Prototypes are built and tested to include biocompatibility evalua tions based on ASTM standard procedures. The device is validated for sterility and freedom from pyrogens before it can be tested on animals or humans. Medical devices are classified as class I, II or III depending on their invasiveness. Class I devices can be marketed by submitting notification to the FDA. Class II and III devices require either that they show equivalence to a device marketed prior to 1976 or that they receive pre-marketing approval. The time from device conception to FDA approval can range from months (class I device) to in excess of ten years (class III device). Therefore, much planning is necessary to pick the best regulatory approach. 2. Wound Dressings and Skin Replacement 2.1 Introduction Wounds to the skin are encountered every day. Minor skin wounds cause some pain, but these wounds will heal by themselves in time. Even though many minor wounds heal effectively without scarring in the absence of treatment, they heal more rapidly if they are kept clean and moist. Devices such as Band-Aids are used to assist in wound healing. For deeper wounds, a variety of wound dressings have been developed including cell cultured artificial skin. These materials are intended to promote healing of skin damaged or removed as a result of skin grafting, ulceration, burns, cancer excision or mechanical trauma.
