Fixation and Mechanical Properties of Implanted Cartilage Replacements - Overview of three recently published papers

Partial- and
full-thickness cartilage lesions of the knee caused by trauma, disease or joint
instability are a common disorder affecting people of all ages. Implanted
cartilage replacements (ICR) have the potential to overcome the limitations of
conventional treatment methods and are a promising approach to restore
functionality of the joint. In spite of some success in engineering
cartilaginous tissue, inferior biomechanical and biochemical properties of ICR
compared to native articular cartilage (AC) and inadequate quality of fixation

Challenge of Biomechanics


The application of mechanics to biology
– biomechanics – bears great challenges due to the intricacy of living things.
Their dynamism, along with the complexity of their mechanical response (which
in itself involves complex chemical, electrical, and thermal phenomena) makes
it very difficult to correlate empirical data with theoretical models. This
difficulty elevates the importance of useful biomechanical theories compared to
other fields of engineering. Despite inherent imperfections of all theories, a
