A commentary is presented on Doctors P. Aspenberg and M. Hilding's research on how intraoperative ibandronate reduced prosthesis migration after a total knee prosthesis was implanted. The author states that the study was well-designed, with good randomization and blinding techniques as well as valid outcome measures.

    Background: With extensive use of posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty implants, it is increasingly important to assess the mechanical performance of this design alternative. The purpose of this study was to examine the wear patterns at the femoral cam-tibial post interface in a series...

    Background: Despite improvements in the design and manufacturing of the components used in total knee arthroplasty, wear of the polyethylene bearing remains a potential source of failure. One theoretical advantage of modular tibial implants is that, when the components are well fixed, patients...

    Many studies suggest patient factors influence TKA outcomes, but the reported data are controversial, due perhaps in part to using only postoperative scores rather than change in scores from pre- to postoperatively. We examined the effect of gender, age, diagnosis, and obesity on changes in pre...

    Valgus deformity correction with total knee arthroplasty is challenging. We hypothesized selective release of the tight lateral structures (pie-crusting technique), and of the lateral retinaculum in case of patellar maltracking, would obtain and maintain correction of the frontal plane...

    Operative options for the younger patient with an arthritic knee remain controversial. We prospectively followed 1047 patients 55 years old or younger who underwent knee arthroplasty in a community joint registry over a 14-year period. Patients were implanted with 1047 joints of three...

    The advantages of the monoblock design and lower cost have prompted renewed interest in the all-polyethylene tibia in total knee arthroplasty. We prospectively followed patients with all-polyethylene tibial total knee arthroplasties over a 14-year period. Since 1991, 443 total knee...

    Given concerns about long term implant loosening in young, heavy patients, we asked whether these patients would fare as well as older, lightweight patients with bone-ingrowth fixation. Cementless total knee arthroplasty was performed consecutively in 1328 patients (1556 knees) using a total...
