The article presents a study about the differences with respect to skin injuries among an elastic stockinette, cast padding, and no protective material in patients having primary total knee arthroplasty. The study has shown that an elastic stockinette under the tourniquet prevented the development of blisters better than no protective material.

    Total Knee Replacement is used to treat pain, stiffness and reduced range of movement. It has been estimated that a minimum of 90 degrees of range of motion in the knee is required for normal activities of daily living. In this article we demonstrate a technical note with a small patient series...

    Background: Despite the use of modern instruments in total knee arthroplasty, component malalignment remains a problem. Whether a computer-assisted implantation technique can improve the accuracy of the spatial positioning of an implant is a matter of debate. The objective of this study was to...

    The Dual Bearing Knee (DBK) prosthesis is a new concept which has a mobile-bearing insert. In May 2001, the posterior femoral condyle design of the DBK was changed to become smaller and there was a posterior shift in the base of the insert dish (Hi-Flex). Between 1998 and 2004, 371 DBKs (112...

    Purpose: The popliteus tendon is known to play a key role in the stability of the posterolateral corner of the knee. While prior work suggests that isolated sectioning of the popliteus tendon has little consequence for the static stability of the knee following TKA, no studies have evaluated the...

    The question addressed in this study was whether high-flexion total knee arthroplasty (TKA) designs improve the mechanical behaviour of TKAs in high flexion and whether they maintain the mechanical performance of conventional TKAs at normal flexion angles.
