    Loading of the hip and knee joints during whole body vibration training

    During whole body vibrations, the total contact force in knee and hip joints consists of a static component plus the vibration-induced dynamic component. In two different cohorts, these forces were measured with instrumented joint implants at different vibration frequencies and amplitudes.

    Outcome of short versus long interval in two-stage exchange for periprosthetic joint infection: a prospective cohort study.

    This study suggests that two-stage exchange with short interval has a similar outcome than with long interval, when highly active antibiotic therapy is used. Patient inconvenience and care costs due to immobilization were lower when strategies with a short interval were used.

    Impact of antagonistic muscle co-contraction on in vivo knee contact forces

    This study shows that treatment of diseased and failed joints should not only be restricted to anatomical reconstruction of static limb axes alignment. The dynamic activation of muscles, as a key modifier of lower limb biomechanics, should also be taken into account and thus also represents a promising target for restoring function, patient mobility, and preventing future joint failure.

    Unraveling local tissue changes within severely injured skeletal muscles in response to MSC-based intervention using MALDI Imaging mass spectrometry

    We used MALDI imaging mass spectrometry in combination with multivariate statistical strategies to uncover previously unknown peptide alterations within severely injured skeletal muscles. Our analysis revealed that very early molecular alterations in response to MSC-TX occur largely in the region adjacent to the trauma and only to a small extent in the actual trauma region.

    Hydrolytically-degradable click-crosslinked alginate hydrogels

    Degradable biomaterials aim to recapitulate the dynamic microenvironment that cells are naturally exposed to. By oxidizing the alginate polymer backbone, thereby rendering it susceptible to hydrolysis, and crosslinking it via norbornene-tetrazine click chemistry, we can control rheological, mechanical, and degradation properties of resulting hydrogels. Chemical modifications were confirmed by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and the resulting mechanical properties measured by rheology and unconfined compression testing, demonstrating that these are both a function of norbornene coupling and oxidation state.

    A biomaterial with a channel-like pore architecture induces endochondral healing of bone defects

    We report on a biomaterial with a channel-like pore architecture that controls cell recruitment and tissue patterning in the early phase of healing. In consequence of extracellular matrix alignment, CD146+ progenitor cell accumulation and restrained vascularization, a highly organized endochondral ossification process is induced in rats.
