- Does Minimally Invasive Total Knee Arthroplasty Improve Isokinetic Torque? Liebensteiner, Michael; Krismer, Martin; Koller, Arnold; Semenitz, Barbara; Mayr, Eckart // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;Nov2012, Vol. 470 Issue 11, p3233
Background: Less invasive dissection of the extensor apparatus, one of the aspects of minimally invasive surgical (MIS) TKA, might result in less reduction of postoperative quadriceps strength. However, it is unclear whether MIS is associated with less strength reduction. Questions/purposes: We...
- Minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty using the contralateral knee as a control group: a case-control study. Bonutti, Peter; Zywiel, Michael; Seyler, Thorsten; Lee, Seung; McGrath, Mike; Marker, David; Mont, Michael // International Orthopaedics;Apr2010, Vol. 34 Issue 4, p491
The primary purpose of this study was to compare clinical and functional results of bilateral total knee arthroplasties in which a conventional total knee replacement was initially performed on one knee and a minimally invasive total knee replacement was later performed on the contralateral...
- Does Tourniquet Use in TKA Affect Recovery of Lower Extremity Strength and Function? A Randomized Trial. Dennis, Douglas; Kittelson, Andrew; Yang, Charlie; Miner, Todd; Kim, Raymond; Stevens-Lapsley, Jennifer; Dennis, Douglas A; Kittelson, Andrew J; Yang, Charlie C; Miner, Todd M; Kim, Raymond H; Stevens-Lapsley, Jennifer E // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;Jan2016, Vol. 474 Issue 1, p69
Background:Tourniquet use during total knee arthroplasty (TKA) improves visibility and reduces intraoperative blood loss. However, tourniquet use may also have a negative impact on early recovery of muscle strength and lower extremity function after TKA. Questions/purposes:...

- Consider quadriceps snip or tibial tubercle osteotomy for revision TKA exposure. Ries, Michael D. // Orthopedics Today;Sep2013, Vol. 33 Issue 9, p6
The article reviews the oblique quadriceps tenotomy snip and tubercle osteotomy as techniques for extensile exposures for revision total knee arthroplasty cases wherein the quality of the patient's bone is cited as the basis for which technique to use.
- Exploring the Depths of Minimally Invasive Quadriceps-Sparing Total Knee Arthroplasty. Tria Jr., Alfred J. // Orthopedics;Mar2006, Vol. 29 Issue 3, p214
Discusses the technique of minimally invasive quadriceps-sparing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Indications for TKA; Advantages of quadriceps-sparing TKA; Disadvantage of using the technique; Issues occurring as a result of decreased visualization.
- The Medial Parapatellar Approach to the Knee. Harwin, Steven F. // Journal of Knee Surgery (SLACK Incorporated);Jan2003, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p43
Describes the medial parapatellar surgical approach to total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Effect of the approach on the vastus medialis muscle fibers; Modifications made to the approach; Application of the approach in arthrotomy; Details of the actual use of the approach during TKA.
- The Quadriceps Snip for Exposing the Stiff Knee. Arsht, Steven J.; Scuderi, Giles R. // Journal of Knee Surgery (SLACK Incorporated);Jan2003, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p55
Describes the use of quadriceps snip as a means of exposing the tight knee in primary and revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Patients selected to undergo TKA using the surgical technique; Details of the surgical technique involved in exposing the knee; Effect of quadriceps snip on the...
- Resection arthroplasty for failed patellar components. Lavernia, Carlos; Alcerro, Jose; Drakeford, Michael; Tsao, Audrey; Krackow, Kenneth; Hungerford, David // International Orthopaedics;Dec2009, Vol. 33 Issue 6, p1591
A total of 1,401 primary total knee arthroplasties (TKA) were reviewed; 44 (3.2%) had at least the patellar component revised. Nine of these knees (eight patients) had insufficient bone stock to allow reimplantation of another patellar component. Clinical data on the nine knees were obtained...
