Patellar Resurfacing in Total Knee Replacement: Five-Year Clinical and Economic Results of a Large Randomized Controlled Trial
- The Role of Patellar Resurfacing in TKA. Dennis, Douglas A. // Orthopedics;Sep2006, Vol. 29 Issue 9, p832
The article discusses the rationale for patellar resurfacing in primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Clinical results of TKA without patellar resurfacing using both current and historic designs have demonstrated anterior knee pain rates of 10 percent to 29 percent. It infers that without...
- Apixaban versus enoxaparin for thromboprophylaxis after knee replacement (ADVANCE-2): a randomised double-blind trial. // Advances in Orthopaedics;Sep2010, Vol. 2 Issue 3, p132
In this article, promising data from the second Phase III trial of the new oral Factor Xa inhibitor apixaban in patients undergoing knee arthroplasty are presented.
- Efficacy of intra-articular cocktail analgesic injection in total knee arthroplasty -- a randomized controlled trial. // Advances in Orthopaedics;Mar2010, Vol. 2 Issue 1, p25
The article focuses on the result of a study regarding the efficacy of intra-articular cocktail analgesic injection in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Through randomized controlled trial of patients with osteoarthritis who underwent unilateral TKA, it found out that intra-articular cocktail...
- No difference in early functional outcomes for mini-midvastus and limited medial parapatellar approaches in navigation-assisted total knee arthroplasty: a prospective randomized clinical trial. Dae-Hee Lee; Jungsoon Choi; Kyung-Wook Nha; Ho-Joong Kim; Seung-Beom Han // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Jan2011, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p66
Patients desire less pain and faster recovery of range of knee motion after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). While minimal invasive surgery (MIS) TKA appears to meet these needs, concerns exist regarding component malpositioning. Navigation systems can reduce the incidence of component...
- Functional performance of mobile versus fixed bearing total knee prostheses: a randomised controlled trial. Jacobs, W.; Christen, B.; Wymenga, A.; Schuster, A.; Schaaf, D.; Ham, A.; Wehrli, U. // Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy;Aug2012, Vol. 20 Issue 8, p1450
Purpose: The primary goal of this study was to assess the difference in active flexion between patients with a mobile versus a fixed bearing, cruciate retaining, and total knee arthroplasty. The study was designed as a randomised controlled multi-centre trial. Methods: Participants were assigned...
- Comment on Chen et al.: Patellar resurfacing versus nonresurfacing in total knee arthroplasty: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials. Liddle, Alexander; Judge, Andrew; Murray, David; Pandit, Hemant // International Orthopaedics;Oct2013, Vol. 37 Issue 10, p2103
A letter to the editor is presented in response to the article "Patellar resurfacing versus nonresurfacing in total knee arthroplasty: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials" in the August 2013 issue.
- Patellar Resurfacing in Total Knee Arthroplasty: Does Design Matter? Pavlou, George; Meyer, Carl; Leonidou, Andreas; Tsiridis, Elefthcrios; As-Sultany, Mohammed; West, Robert // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;7/20/2011, Vol. 93-A Issue 14, p1301
Background: Patel lar resurfacing in total knee arthroplasty remains controversial. The aim of this study was to compare outcomes following total knee arthroplasty with patellar resurfacing with those following total knee arthroplasty without patellar resurfacing. We also sought to identify any...
- Patellar Resurfacing in Primary Total Knee Replacement. Pilling, R.W.D.; Moulder, E.; Allgar, V.; Stat, C; Messner, J.; Sun, Z.; Mohsen, A. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;12/19/2012, Vol. 94-A Issue 24, p2270
Background: Treatment of the patella during total knee replacement is an area of continuing debate. We performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to address the hypothesis that patellar resurfacing in primary total knee replacement improved patient outcome. Methods: Randomized...
- TKA without resurfacing carries sevenfold risk of patellar revision. Brockenbrough, Gina // Orthopedics Today;Jul2011, Vol. 31 Issue 7, p29
The article reports on the conclusion by Doctor Todd C. Johnson that a joint registry study involving 95 surgeons and various designs demonstrated better implant survival with routine patellar resurfacing during total knee arthoplasty than with bicompartmental procedures without resurfacing.
