The Patellofemoral Joint: From Dysplasia to Dislocation

Research Paper Title The patellofemoral joint: from dysplasia to dislocation. Abstract Patellofemoral dysplasia is a major predisposing factor for instability of the patellofemoral joint. However, there is no consensus as to whether patellofemoral dysplasia is genetic in origin, caused by imbalanced forces producing maltracking and remodelling of the trochlea during infancy and growth, or due… Read More

Genes: How Your Lifestyle Choices Could Affect Your Children…

For the first time, we have a mechanism that could explain how your lifestyle choices may impact the genes of your children and grandchildren. Mounting evidence suggests that environmental factors such as smoking, diet and stress can leave their mark on the genes of future generations. For example, girls born to Dutch women who were… Read More
