We introduce in detail the entire knee osteoarthritis treatment process with platelet-rich plasma injection, including preparation, procedures, and evaluation.
Nondestructive Monitoring of Degradable Scaffold-Based Tissue-Engineered Blood Vessel Development Using Optical Coherence Tomography Wanwen Chen1, Shangmin Liu2, Junqing Yang1, Yueheng Wu2, Wentao Ma2, Zhanyi Lin3 1Department of Cardiology, Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangdong General Hospital, 2Medical Research Center, Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangdong General Hospital, 3Institute of Geriatric medicine, Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangdong General Hospital A step by step protocol for nondestructive and long-period monitoring the process of vascular remodeling and scaffold degradation in real-time culture of biodegradable polymeric scaffold-based tissue-engineered blood vessels with pulsatile stimulation using optical coherence tomography is described here.
Rapid Acquisition of 3D Images Using High-resolution Episcopic Microscopy Haochuan Zhang*1,2,3, JunGang Huang*2,3,4, Xin Liu2,3, Ping Zhu4, Zhongrong Li1, Xue Li2,3 1Department of Pediatric Surgery, The Second Affiliated Hospital & Yuying Children's Hospital, Wenzhou Medical University, 2 We describe a detailed protocol using high-resolution episcopic microscopy to acquire three-dimensional (3D) images of mouse embryos. This improved protocol utilizes a modified tissue preparation method to enhance penetration of the fluorescent dye, thereby permitting morphometric analysis of both small and large-sized specimens.
