    Degradation of tibial inserts in vivo has been found to be multifactorial in nature, resulting in a complex interaction of many variables. A range of kinematic conditions occurs at the tibio-femoral interface, giving rise to various degrees of rolling and sliding at this interface. The movement...

    Background: The current practice of the Swedish Knee Register is not to take into consideration if one or both knees in a patient are subject to surgery when evaluating risk of revision after arthroplasty. Risk calculations are typically done by statistical methods, such as Kaplan-Meier analyses...

    The tribological testing of artificial hip and knee joints in the laboratory has been ongoing for several decades. This work has been carried out in an attempt to simulate the loading and motion conditions applied in vivo and, therefore, the potential for the success of the joint. However,...

    99mTc-UBI 29-41 (UBI), an antimicrobial peptide, specifically targets bacteria. We tested the ability of UBI to discriminate between infected and uninfected prosthetic joints using a rabbit model previously validated. Left knee arthroplasty was performed on 20 New Zealand rabbits, then 107 cfu...

    Background: The aim of the present study is to analyse the increased surgical time required due to supervised surgery as an element of costs of education. Material and methods: Incision to closure times of 353 primary hip and knee prostheses were evaluated according to educational level....

    The new P.F.C. Sigma RP-F (rotating-platform high-flexion) knee has been designed to permit 155° of flexion after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) without compromising wear, polyethylene contact stresses, patellofemoral tracking, or stability. The purpose of this article is to describe the...
