Learning How to Resurface Cam-Type Femoral Heads with Acceptable Accuracy and Precision: The Role of Computed Tomography-Based Navigation
- The Use of Computed Tomography to Determine Femoral Component Size. Uslu, Murad; Ozsar, Baris; Kendi, Tuba; Kara, Simay; Tekdemir, Ibrahim; Atik, O. Sahap // Bulletin of the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases;2005, Vol. 63 Issue 1/2, p49
Computed tomography is used to assess whether ideal femoral component size in knee arthroplasty can be made more accurately. Ideal femoral component size was measured on radiography, computed tomography, and by direct measurement of 20 cadaver femora and analyzed statistically. There was no...
- The long-term benefit of computer-assisted surgical navigation in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. Konyves, Arpad; Willis-Owen, Charles A.; Spriggins, Anthony J. // Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Research;2010, Vol. 5, p94
We reviewed the outcomes of 30 consecutive primary unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKA) performed by a single surgeon for medial compartmental osteoarthritis. Fifteen Allegretto knees were implanted without computer navigation and 15 EIUS knees were implanted with navigation. We compared...
- Footprint mismatch in total cervical disc arthroplasty. Thaler, Martin; Hartmann, Sebastian; Gstöttner, Michaela; Lechner, Ricarda; Gabl, Michael; Bach, Christian // European Spine Journal;Apr2013, Vol. 22 Issue 4, p759
Purpose: Cervical disc arthroplasty has become a commonplace surgery for the treatment of cervical radiculopathy and myelopathy. Most manufacturers derive their implant dimensions from early published cadaver studies. Ideal footprint match of the prosthesis is essential for good surgical...
- 3D CT Assessment of the Relationship Between Humeral Head Alignment and Glenoid Retroversion in Glenohumeral Osteoarthritis. Sabesan, Vani J.; Callanan, Mark; Youderian, Ari; Iannotti, Joseph P. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;4/16/2014, Vol. 96 Issue 8, pe64(1)
Background: Glenoid bone loss associated with advanced glenohumeral arthritis is frequently accompanied by subluxation of the humeral head with subsequent inferior outcomes of shoulder arthroplasty. We hypothesized that the relationship between the center of the humeral head and the...
- The three As of joint replacement can address failed total knee arthroplasty. Rapp, Susan M. // Orthopedics Today;Sep2009, Vol. 29 Issue 9, p12
The article presents information on three joint reconstruction approaches for addressing failed total knee arthroplasty.
- Arthroplasty in the Treatment of Subcapital Hip Fracture. // Orthopedics;Mar2003, Vol. 26 Issue 3, p342
A quiz concerning arthroplasty in the treatment of subcapital hip fracture is presented.
- Identifying pathology of failed UKA during exam and surgery aids conversion to TKA. Rapp, Susan M. // Orthopedics Today;Nov2009, Vol. 29 Issue 11, p12
This article discusses research being done on unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) conversion to total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
- Implant positioning, soft tissue balancing can help avoid post-TSA instability. Brockenbrough, Gina // Orthopedics Today;Nov2009, Vol. 29 Issue 11, p18
This article discusses research being done on instability following arthroplasty.
- PERSPECTIVE. Malkani, Arthur L. // Orthopedics Today;Apr2011, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p22
The author discusses the findings of a study that compared the effectiveness of simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (B-TKA) with staged-bilateral-knee arthroplasty.
