  • How Bone Morphogenic Protein (BMP) Forms Bone In Spine Fusions
    role in the induction of new bone 1 Pre clinical studies have shown that rhBMP 2 can cause the differentiation of precursor cells into osteoblasts3 5 7 19 21 22 A 2003 in vitro study compared the bone forming activity of fourteen recombinant human bone morphogenetic proteins 20 Three cell lines representing the different stages of osteoblast differentiation were each tested Alkaline phosphatase activity a measure of the amount of new bone formation was significantly increased in all three cell lines by BMP 2 BMP 6 and BMP 9 The researchers concluded that BMP 2 BMP 6 and BMP 9 may be the most potent agents to induce osteoblast lineage specific differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells Step 5 Bone formation As the sponge degrades or dissolves these stem cells differentiate into osteoblast and begin to form trabecular bone and or cartilage Blood vessel formation angiogenesis is observed at the same time The bone formation process develops from the outside of the rhBMP 2 ACS implant towards the center until the entire implant is replaced by trabecular bone Pre clinical studies support that the bone formation started by rhBMP 2 ACS is self limiting forming a predictable amount of bone at the site of implantation The ability of rhBMP 2 to induce new bone formation depends on its concentration The rate of bone formation the amount of bone formed and the density of the resulting bone are positively correlated with both the concentration of rhBMP 2 and the length of time that rhBMP 2 is present at the implant site 1 Step 6 Remodeling Remodeling of the trabecular bone induced by rhBMP 2 is consistent with the biomechanical forces placed on it Radiographic biomechanical and histologic evaluation of the induced bone indicates that it functions biologically and biomechanically as native bone

  • Zen commute can take you to a better place
    it either way The intention that naturally exists my intention is to get done with this commute Kober noted So I ve just doomed myself to an hour of discomfort because my intention will not be met until I get out of the car A goal can be to simply become present paying attention to your surroundings in a way that acknowledges what s around you Clouds in the sky feeling of the seat your hands on the steering wheel Kober said that if you can focus your thoughts even just three times at the very beginning middle and end of a commute you ve accomplished something During Those traveling by bus or train can listen to a 16 minute guided meditation led by Kober available on YouTube An idea for those new to meditation might be listening to it once during one commute and noting any effects See what the world looks like before you do the guided meditation see if anything has changed after Kober said See if it s a little brighter The easiest way to fold Zen into your commute Simple breaths Before you actually start driving just focus on the breath Gonzalez said Take three mindful breaths Be aware that you re right there right now as opposed to I wonder how long it s going to take me today I wonder how many meetings are going to be on my calendar Cultivating awareness can force your mind to slow down You become aware that you re right there right now and that s incredibly powerful Gonzalez said Gonzalez added that this also stops us from our mind s natural wanderings toward the past How long was the commute yesterday Will today be better or the future I really don t want to go to lunch with my boss today She acknowledges this isn t an easy task We re bombarded by unconscious thinking thinking that just happens to us she said Finding one central focus is the key she said And good news this doesn t mean you have to give up scrolling Facebook Focus on one thing that relaxes you and return to that if you re distracted So whether music a book or even perusing social media makes you happy home in and if you get distracted return to that thing Just come back to what you re reading because how many times have we started reading something and we say Oh my God I ve read this paragraph 10 times she said The mind did not stay focused As a bonus this serves as a separation from work This moment means there is a point of separation and you re going home Gonzalez said Keeping your brain on topic helps calm it she said And training it to do that can carry over into other moments work and otherwise As you re doing this you re gaining a benefit because you re seeing how you can apply this in your day
