A Review Of Mesenchymal Stem Cell Injections For Osteoarthritis, Charles Giangarra, Jill Goodwin, Franklin D. Shuler, Timothy Wilson-Byrne, John J. Jasko

Timothy Wilson-Byrne MD

Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) injections for osteoarthritis is reviewed.

Methods- PubMed search identifying articles in English from 2003-2018 that used intra- articular injection (IA), cartilage repair, cartilage regeneration, chondral injury, adipose stem cells, bone marrow stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, or autologous stem cells.

Results – 388 patients receiving IA MSC injections are discussed with data obtained from 10 case reports or case series, 4 randomized clinical trials (RCT), 1 cohort study, and 3 case controlled therapeutic studies.

Conclusions – MSC injections may be an effective adjunct in the management of osteoarthritis and a variety of cartilage related pathologies.

Pressure Thresholds And Stiffness On The Plantar Surface Of The Human Foot, Thilina W. Weerasinghe, Ravindra S. Goonetilleke, Uwe Reischl 2017 Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Pressure Thresholds And Stiffness On The Plantar Surface Of The Human Foot, Thilina W. Weerasinghe, Ravindra S. Goonetilleke, Uwe Reischl

Community and Environmental Health Faculty Publications and Presentations

The objective was to develop a methodology to assess Pressure Discomfort Thresholds (PDT), Pressure Pain Thresholds (PPT), and tissue stiffness on the plantar surface of the foot. Ten male and ten female participants volunteered for the study. Foot landmarks were used to create a standardized grid-type template of 95 points. For each test point, PPT and PDT values were obtained, and stiffness was calculated for each of the twenty participants. Cluster analyses were performed to determine the regions of similarity for the three dependent variables, PPT, PDT and stiffness. Moran’s-I-index was used to determine the spatial auto correlations. The ...

A Randomized Clinical Trial To Compare The Effect Of Non Operative Treatment With And Without Autologous Conditioned Plasma (Acp) On Healing And Function In Patients With Achilles Tendon Ruptures, Tyler M. Pratt 2015 The University of Western Ontario

A Randomized Clinical Trial To Compare The Effect Of Non Operative Treatment With And Without Autologous Conditioned Plasma (Acp) On Healing And Function In Patients With Achilles Tendon Ruptures, Tyler M. Pratt

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

The purpose of this study was to determine whether there is evidence to support conducting a larger randomized control trial (RCT) to compare the non-operative treatment of Achilles tendon (AT) ruptures with or without Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP®). Twenty-four patients were randomized to receive an ACP® or saline injection within seven days and again at two weeks post-rupture. Tendon healing was longitudinally evaluated using ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Functional and patient-reported quality of life measures were also assessed. A small sample size limited our ability to detect statistically significant differences. The mean rankings of healing were slightly ...

INTRODUCTION:

Arcanobacterium haemolyticum (previously Corynebacterium haemolyticum), a facultative anaerobe, Gram positive rod was first isolated from United States servicemen and indigenous populations of the South Pacific in 1946. Early reported cases detailed A. haemolyticum as a causative pathogen for exudative pharyngitis (most commonly in adolescents) and cutaneous infections. Osteomyelitis caused by A. haemolyticum has been described in less than five cases in the literature. Here, we describe our experience in diagnosing patient with osteomyelitis caused by A. haemolyticum.

CASE REPORT:

A 30-year-old man with a history of peripheral neuropathy, diabetic foot ulcers, methicillin-resistant S. aureus osteomyelitis and amputation of the ...

Use Of Circular External Fixation For Combined Subtalar Joint Fusion And Ankle Distraction., Thomas Zgonis, John Stapleton, Thomas S Roukis 2015 University of Texas Health Science - San Antonio

Use Of Circular External Fixation For Combined Subtalar Joint Fusion And Ankle Distraction., Thomas Zgonis, John Stapleton, Thomas S Roukis

John J Stapleton DPM, FACFAS

The authors discuss a novel technique not previously published that incorporates a subtalar joint arthrodesis with an ankle joint arthrodiastasis as an alternative to a tibiotalocalcaneal arthrodesis. Young and active patients who experience refractory pain and stiffness to the rearfoot and ankle secondary to combined severe subtalar and ankle arthrosis are suitable candidates for this surgical procedure. This new approach is based on sound principles in the treatment of severe arthrosis affecting the ankle and subtalar joint. The authors are currently prospectively reviewing their surgical experience with this procedure and believe that it provides an alternative option for the patient ...


Surgical Management Of Diabetic Foot And Ankle Infections., Claire M Capobianco, John Stapleton, Thomas Zgonis 2015 University of Texas Health Science - San Antonio

Surgical Management Of Diabetic Foot And Ankle Infections., Claire M Capobianco, John Stapleton, Thomas Zgonis

John J Stapleton DPM, FACFAS

Delayed treatment of any diabetic foot infection can lead to a limb- or life-threatening scenario. Urgent and/or emergent surgery may be necessary in the early diagnosis of a severe diabetic foot infection that is followed by staged reconstructive procedures. This article provides the reader with a thorough understanding of the surgical management of severe diabetic foot infections and describes and guides treatment based on a rational schematic approach that identifies the anatomic location of the diabetic foot infection.


Innovative Techniques In Preventing And Salvaging Neurovascular Pedicle Flaps In Reconstructive Foot And Ankle Surgery., Thomas Zgonis, John Stapleton 2015 University of Texas Health Science - San Antonio

Innovative Techniques In Preventing And Salvaging Neurovascular Pedicle Flaps In Reconstructive Foot And Ankle Surgery., Thomas Zgonis, John Stapleton

John J Stapleton DPM, FACFAS

Pedicle flaps to cover soft tissue defects of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity are invaluable. However, venous congestion and flap necrosis, a common complication, poses greater morbidity to the patient as few remaining options for attempted limb salvage remain. The authors discuss how to prevent flap failure by allowing close observation and strict offloading of the pedicle flap through current external fixation designs. This article also discusses the role of medicinal leeches in reestablishing blood flow through the pedicle flap to prevent tissue necrosis. In addition, the use of hydrosurgery as an innovative technique offers the surgeon another option ...

Negative-Pressure Wound Therapy In The Management Of Diabetic Charcot Foot And Ankle Wounds., Crystal L Ramanujam, John Stapleton, Thomas Zgonis

John J Stapleton DPM, FACFAS

As the prevalence of diabetes mellitus continues to rise, innovative medical and surgical treatment options have increased dramatically to address diabetic-related foot and ankle complications. Among the most challenging clinical case scenarios is Charcot neuroarthropathy associated with soft tissue loss and/or osteomyelitis. In this review article, the authors present a review of the most common utilizations of negative-pressure wound therapy as an adjunctive therapy or combined with plastic surgery as it relates to the surgical management of diabetic Charcot foot and ankle wounds.

Internal And External Fixation Approaches To The Surgical Management Of Calcaneal Fractures., John Stapleton, Gennady Kolodenker, Thomas Zgonis 2015 Lehigh Valley Health Network

Internal And External Fixation Approaches To The Surgical Management Of Calcaneal Fractures., John Stapleton, Gennady Kolodenker, Thomas Zgonis

John J Stapleton DPM, FACFAS

Calcaneal fractures are one of the most difficult fractures to surgically manage and often require a steep learning curve to achieve consistent results. They usually occur in young individuals with labor intensive occupations and are associated with major complications. Conservative treatment of intraarticular calcaneal fractures with displacement often results in significant deformity, bone loss, and posttraumatic arthrosis. Optimally, an open approach is required in most cases to achieve anatomic reduction and successful long-term outcomes.
