Introduction<br/>Osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent joint disease affecting 7% of the global population in 2020. Lower limb malalignment emerges as a significant contributor to OA, presenting as varus or valgus misalignment. This deviation induces unicompartmental pathology, leading to the wear and tear of the protective cartilage. Surgical...

The mechanical failure of a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) replacement system can stem from various factors, with one notable cause being the unnatural kinematics and loading observed in prosthetic joint function. Given that,. the primary objective of the study was to investigate whether including functionally graded materials (FGMs) at the site...

Pompe disease is a progressive muscular disorder that will affect the respiratory muscles, in particular the diaphragm, thereby seriously limiting the respiratory function. Respiratory function is typically assessed using spirometry. However early stages of diaphragm impairment may not be detected by conventional spirometry measurements due to...

Delayed healing or non-union of bone fractures are still clinically and economically relevant problems. Bone healing includes pro- and anti-inflammatory phases, which proved crucial for successful healing. Being able to modulate these inflammatory responses could potentially promote bone fracture healing. Dendritic cells play important roles in...

Introduction: A combined bone growth and remodeling model should be created, to investigate the effect of different femur shapes on the risk of developing cam type deformities. The different femur shapes needed for this study can be created using a statistical shape and appearance model (SSAM). The workflow of the combined bone growth and...

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a three-dimensional deformity of the spine that can be treated by wearing a correctional rigid brace. The goal of brace treatment is prevention of curve progression, and in some cases the curve even decreases. The current problem concerning treatment of AIS lays in the design decisions made during...
