In this study, we developed a novel rat model of intraarticular adhesion formation in the knee joint.
It was revealed that adhesions form within the knee joint early on due to post-traumatic immobilization, suggesting the need for early intervention in rehabilitation.
Currently, we are studying the molecular mechanisms of the adhesion formation process within the joint.
