    The aim of the study was to determine whether the incidence of radiolucencies can be reduced using pulsed lavage before cementing the tibia in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). We prospectively studied a consecutive series of 112 cemented Oxford UKA in 100 patients in two centres. In...

    Background: The relationship between volume and outcome of total knee arthroplasties has never been evaluated in a nationally representative sample, to our knowledge. We hypothesized that surgeons and hospitals with higher patient volumes would have better outcomes, as defined by lower mortality...

    Purpose: The procedures of bone cut and soft tissue balancing in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are usually performed using the measured resection technique or the gap technique; however, the superiority of these techniques is controversial. An increase of extension gap after resection of the...

    The primary objectives of this systematic review were to define the indications, functional outcomes, survivorship and complications associated with distal femoral varus osteotomy (DFVO). Cumulative survival with arthroplasty as the endpoint ranged from 64 to 82% at 10 years, and 45% at 15...

    This retrospective study evaluated whether intramedullary or extramedullary tibial alignment guides are more accurate in assuring correct tibial component positioning in total knee arthroplasties (TKAs). Fifty-five TKAs were performed with the only difference being whether an intramedullary (31)...

    Purpose: To measure changes in muscle power from before to 6 months after total knee arthroplasty and to compare outcomes with those from a control group of healthy adults. Material and Methods: 26 patients who underwent a total knee replacement were compared with 12 healthy age-matched adults...

    Objectives: To determine whether the method of the autotransfusion in association with knee arthroplasty leads to differences in anti-inflammatory cytokines in the patient's circulation. Design and setting: Prospective study in a university hospital. Patients: Twenty-one patients undergoing knee...
