BEAR Procedure

This study assessed the safety of the newly developed bridge-enhanced anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair (BEAR), which involves suture repair of the ligament combined with a bioactive scaffold to bridge the gap between the torn ligament ends. As the intra-articular environment is complex in its response to implanted materials, this study was designed to determine whether there would be a significant rate of adverse reaction to the implanted scaffold.

Influence of Acidic pH on Wound Healing In Vivo

There has been little understanding of acidification functionality in wound healing, highlighting the need to study the efficacy of wound acidification on wound closure and cellular activity in non-infected wounds. This study is focused on establishing the healing potential of wound acidification in non-infected wounds. Acidic buffers, constituting either phosphoric or citric acid, were employed to modify the physiological pH of non-infected full-thickness excisional murine wounds. Acidification of the wound by acidic buffers was found to be an effective strategy to improve wound healing.


Fibrin and Collagen Differentially but Synergistically Regulate Sprout Angiogenesis of Human Dermal Microvascular Endothelial Cells in 3-Dimensional Matrix

Angiogenesis is a highly regulated event involving complex, dynamic interactions between microvascular endothelial cells and extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. Alteration of ECM composition and architecture is a hallmark feature of wound clot and tumor stroma. We previously reported that during angiogenesis, endothelial cell responses to growth factors are modulated by the compositional and mechanical properties of a surrounding three-dimensional (3D) extracellular matrix (ECM) that is dominated by either cross-linked fibrin or type I collagen.

Type I collagen and collagen mimetics as angiogenesis promoting superpolymers

Angiogenesis, the development of blood vessels from the pre-existing vasculature, is a key component of embryogenesis and tissue regeneration. Angiogenesis also drives pathologies such as tumor growth and metastasis, and hemangioma development in newborns. On the other hand, promotion of angiogenesis is needed in tissues with vascular insufficiencies, and in bioengineering, to endow tissue substitutes with appropriate microvasculatures. Therefore, much research has focused on defining mechanisms of angiogenesis, and identifying pro- and anti-angiogenic molecules.

Using the BEAR Procedure for ACL Repairs | Duke Health

Bridge-enhanced ACL repair (BEAR) is a new FDA-approved procedure that allows a torn ACL to heal itself and does not require graft tissue to be taken from another part of the body. Duke Health is one of the few centers in the U.S. to offer the BEAR procedure.

Tips and Tricks for Augmenting Rotator Cuff Repair With a Bio-inductive Collagen Implant

The contemporary literature suggests that a primary feature of recurrence of rotator cuff tear after arthroscopic repair is failure of tendon healing, which can occur for multiple reasons, including compromised tissue quality. Recently, the use of augmentation implants, grafts, or scaffolds has emerged as a strategy to address the issue of deficient rotator cuff tissue. A resorbable bio-inductive collagen implant (REGENETEN; Smith & Nephew, Andover, MA) has been shown to increase tendon thickness when applied in rotator cuff repair. This article presents an experienced surgeon’s tips for implanting this device. In addition, we review the current literature about this bio-inductive implant.
