Survivorship of monoblock trabecular metal cups in primary THA: Midterm results
Monoblock trabecular metal cups are made of a novel porous material intended to enhance ingrowth and improve fixation. We prospectively followed 223 consecutive patients with 245 trabecular metal acetabular cups implanted ...
Differential expression of leptin and leptin's receptor isoform (Ob-Rb) mRNA between advanced and minimally affected osteoarthritic cartilage; effect on cartilage metabolism
Objective: To investigate leptin's effect on cartilage metabolism and the pathophysiology of osteoarthritis (OA). Methods: Messenger RNA (mRNA) expression and protein levels of leptin and leptin's receptor isoforms were ...
