Extract

The last year has brought substantial advances in many areas of orthopaedic research. Probably the most impressive is the shift from a focus on implant design, obviously the most successful treatment of end-stage degenerative joint disease, to the potential for earlier interventions, or "biological solutions," that could increase the life of the cartilage, bone, tendons, and ligaments of the joint. The search for biological solutions touches on all aspects of orthopaedic research: response to implant materials, development of tissue-engineered cartilage and bone, and discovery of biomarkers for joint disease. We will review some of the latest advances made and questions raised in this new age of orthopaedic research.
