Title:
Interface membrane fibroblasts around aseptically loosened endoprostheses express MMP-13. 
Abstract:
The objective of this article was to assess whether matrix metalloproteinase-13 (MMP-13) is produced by cells of the peri-implant interface tissues and to further characterize these cells. Tissue specimens were collected from the bone-prosthesis interface at the time of revision surgery of clinically loosened hip and knee arthroplasties (n = 27). Synovial tissues from osteoarthritic patients and young patients with mild joint deformity were used as controls (n = 6). Tissue samples were fixed in...    »
