The article reports on the results of research which was conducted in an effort to determine if measurement of serum ion levels could be used as a diagnostic tool by correlating correlating blood and joint fluid metal ion measurements with findings of metallosis and component wear at the time of revision arthroplasty of the knee. researchers wanted the results to see whether the metal ion measurements could be used as a diagnostic tool to identify problems with hip resurfacing.

    Secondary patella resurfacing is a controversial procedure which is applied in patients with anterior knee pain after a bicondylar knee arthroplasty (with unresurfaced patella). A group of 46 patients were submitted to this procedure and their satisfaction, range of motion and pain improvement...

    Identification and management of patients with isolated patellofemoral osteoarthritis are challenging. Many of these patients present at a young age and it is important to distinguish degenerative change in the patellofemoral articulation from the other various causes of anterior knee pain. Once...

    A modified technique for the reconstruction of the extensor mechanism after revision total knee arthroplasty, is described. A medial gastrocnemius flap, in combination with in situ use of semitendinosus tendon autograft through intraosseous patellar tunnel, was used. The patient was followed for...

    Background: Radiographic assessment of the patella after total knee arthroplasty is typically performed with use of static, unloaded views that may not reproduce the in vivo patellofemoral kinematics. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate and validate the reliability and...

    Arthroplasty is used when there is irreversible damage to the articular cartilage of the knee. It involves implanting a bicompartimental (femoral and tibial components) or a tricompartimental (femoral, tibial and patellar components) prosthesis. It is a very invasive and costly operation, so our...

    A group of 19 patients who underwent knee arthrodesis with use of an intramedullary nail between 1996 and 2005, was studied. In the majority of patients knee arthrodesis was performed as a salvage procedure for the limb following an infected total knee arthroplasty. The outcome of the procedure...

    Many authors presented the epicondylar axis as the fixed axis of rotation of the femoral condyles during flexion of the knee. Positioning of the femoral component of a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) based on the epicondyles has been proposed. This work is a critical analysis of this concept....
