A Population-Based Comparison of the Incidence of Adverse Outcomes After Simultaneous-Bilateral and Staged-Bilateral Total Knee Arthroplasty
- Factors affecting range of motion after total knee arthroplasty in patients with more than 120 degrees of preoperative flexion angle. Sugitani, Kazuya; Arai, Yuji; Takamiya, Hisatake; Terauchi, Ryu; Nakagawa, Shuji; Ueshima, Keiichiro; Kubo, Toshikazu // International Orthopaedics;Aug2015, Vol. 39 Issue 8, p1535
Purpose: The postoperative flexion angle reportedly shows a positive correlation with the preoperative flexion angle, but in some cases, the postoperative flexion angle decreases in patients with a large preoperative flexion angle. The purpose of this study was to investigate factors affecting...
- Study suggests medial mobile bearing UKA not a temporary procedure. // Orthopaedics Today Europe;Jan/Feb2012, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p6
The article discusses a study which concluded that medial mobile bearing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty is better than total knee arthroplasty in terms of activity level and complications.
- A Prospective Randomized Study of Minimally Invasive Total Knee Arthroplasty Compared with Conventional Surgery. Wülker, N.; Lambermont, J. P.; Sacchetti, L.; Lazaró, J. G.; Nardi, J. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;7/7/2010, Vol. 92-A Issue 7, p1584
Background: Despite intense debate regarding whether minimally invasive techniques for total knee arthroplasty improve clinical outcomes over standard techniques, few prospective randomized trials addressing this debate are available in the literature. We therefore designed this multi center...
- 'Spin-out' - eine vermeidbare Komplikation in der Knieendoprothetik. Magin, M.N. // Der OrthopÃ¤de;Feb2014, Vol. 43 Issue 2, p175
Spin out of a rotating polyethylene (PE) platform after total knee replacement leads to rotation of the bearing compared to the fixed metal components of the prosthesis at the femur and tibia of approximately 90Â°. This complication occurs only in prosthesis designs which do not have a...
- 1 in 3 knee surgeries in the U.S. may be 'inappropriate'. Kim, Stephanie H. // McKnight's Long-Term Care News;Aug2014, Vol. 35 Issue 8, p6
The article discusses research by Daniel L. Riddle and colleagues from the Virginia Commonwealth University, published in the June 30, 2014 issue of the journal "Arthritis and Rheumatology," which found that about one-third of knee replacement surgeries in the U.S. may be regarded as inappropriate.
- Prospective trial reveals no clinical advantage for mobile-bearing TKA implant. // Orthopedics Today;Jun2010, Vol. 30 Issue 6, p30
The article presents information about a study which compared the impact of using mobile- and fixed bearing design of the identical total knee prosthesis, held by Dr. Shuichi Matsuda and colleagues at Kyushu University and published in an issue of "Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy."
- Development of a New Knee Society Scoring System. Noble, Philip; Scuderi, Giles; Brekke, Adam; Sikorskii, Alla; Benjamin, James; Lonner, Jess; Chadha, Priya; Daylamani, Daniel; Scott, W.; Bourne, Robert // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;Jan2012, Vol. 470 Issue 1, p20
Background: The Knee Society Clinical Rating System was developed in 1989 and has been widely adopted. However, with the increased demand for TKA, there is a need for a new, validated scoring system to better characterize the expectations, satisfaction, and physical activities of the younger,...
- Effects of anesthetic technique on blood loss and complications after simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty. Zhu, Meng; Chen, Jerry; Tan, Yan; Yew, Andy; Chong, Hwei; Chia, Shi-Lu; Lo, Ngai; Yeo, Seng // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Apr2015, Vol. 135 Issue 4, p565
Aims: Anesthetic technique affects perioperative outcomes, but less was known in simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (BTKA). A single center, retrospective analysis was carried out to prove the hypothesis that utilization of regional anesthesia would result in favorable perioperative...
- Anterolateral approach using tibial tubercle osteotomy for total knee arthroplasty: can we predict failure? Wishart, Marc; Arnold, Markus; Huegli, Rolf; Amsler, Felix; Friederich, Niklaus; Hirschmann, Michael // International Orthopaedics;Dec2012, Vol. 36 Issue 12, p2485
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify predictive factors for the occurrence of complications in a consecutive series of patients who underwent step-cut tibial tubercle osteotomy (TTO) and subsequent screw refixation in primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Methods: Using...
