A Potential Fix for Damaged Knees Finally Discovered, Scientists Say

12 Sep

Orlando, FL - September 12, 2016 - Today, there are many pain management options resorted to by individuals who suffer from arthritis. However, certain options such as the use of pharmaceutical drugs may lead to side effects. The good news is that there are other alternatives thought to be helpful to sufferers.

A potential fix for damaged knees is finally discovered, scientists say. Individuals with damaged knees are often prone to living a reduced quality of life due to pain and immobility. This condition also increases their risk of obesity and other diseases or disorders.

According to the researchers from the Hospital for Special Surgery, there is a biodegradable scaffold or plug that may potentially be useful for those with damaged knee cartilage.

The study is believed to be unique due to the fact that the researchers utilized the serial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as well as the newer quantitative T2 mapping. These tools helped researchers examine the manner that the plug could be incorporated into the knee. The research was presented at the annual meeting of the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine.

Asheesh Bedi, MD, a fellow in sports medicine and shoulder surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery, reveals that the results of the study have encouraged scientists to initiate further evaluation in the use of a synthetic scaffold as a cartilage repair technique.
Dr. Bedi was a part of the study and performed the MRI scan analysis of the participants. Riley Williams, MD, Director of the Institute for Cartilage Repair at the Hospital for Special Surgery, was the one who treated the participants.

The mechanical properties of the Trufit plug are designed to work in the same way as the cartilage and bone. There are various ways that the articular cartilage can be damaged, such as during a motor vehicle accident or sporting events.

It is important to note that the articular cartilage often lacks self-healing abilities. When it is not properly addressed, it may increase the injuries already experienced by the remaining intact cartilage. When this happens, it could increase the risk of degenerative arthritis progression.

Today, many individuals with arthritis are turning to the use of natural alternatives, such as ashwagandha. This ancient Indian herb is believed to help fight arthritis inflammation and joint pain.

While there are medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that are widely used by athletes as well as individuals with damaged knees, the use of these pharmaceutical drugs has often been linked with side effects.
