Chemically Extracted Acellular Nerve Allograft Seeded with SDNF and Autogenic ADSCs for Peripheral Nerve Repairment in a Beagle Model

Wei Li, Lei Chen, Dongqiang Gu, Chunbao Li and Shunxin Zhang

Article Type: Original Research | First Published: December 25, 2021

Peripheral nerve repair is a major challenge in clinical practice. Nerve grafting is required to treat severe peripheral nerve defects caused by injuries. Available nerve sources for autologous transplantation are limited. Stem cells offer promise for peripheral nerve repair and regeneration. However, the current lack of Schwann cell phenotype, high costs, and major trauma limit the production of Schwann cells from stem cell differentiation. Thus, the purpose of this study is to investigate the ...

Spinal Biomechanics Concepts of Pediatric Scoliosis and Trunk Shift Applied to Daily Tasks and Sports

Jean Brunette, PEng, MScA, PhD and André Bazergui, PEng, PhD

Article Type: Review Article | First Published: November 25, 2021

The etiology of pediatric idiopathic scoliosis remains poorly understood and it is likely that there is a combination of different factors responsible for its initiation and development. Although the literature highlights the importance of mechanical factors on spinal deformations, the concepts did not receive the attention and consideration they deserve. The Cobb angle is the gold standard value to assess the extent of spinal deformations and risk of progression. However from a biomechanical pe...
