      BACKGROUND: The goals of lower limb reconstruction are to restore alignment, to improve function, and to reduce pain. However, it remains unclear whether alignment of the lower limb and hindfoot are associated because an accurate assessment of hindfoot deformities has been limited by superposition on plain radiography. Consequently, surgeons often overlook hindfoot deformity when planning orthopaedic procedures of the lower limb. Therefore, we used weight-bearing CT to quantify hindfoot ...

      BACKGROUND: In a typical osteoarthritic knee with varus deformity, distal femoral resection based off the worn medial femoral condyle may result in an elevated joint line. In a setting of fixed flexion contracture, the surgeon may choose to resect additional distal femur to obtain extension, thus purposefully raising the joint line. However, the biomechanical effect of raising the joint line is not well recognized.

      QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What is the effect of the level of the medial ...

      BACKGROUND: Damaged articular cartilage has limited capacity for self-repair. Autologous chondrocyte implantation using a characterized cell therapy product results in significantly better early structural repair as compared with microfracture in patients with symptomatic joint surface defects of the femoral condyles of the knee.

      PURPOSE: To evaluate clinical outcome at 36 months after characterized chondrocyte implantation (CCI) versus microfracture (MF).

      STUDY DESIGN: Randomized ...

      BackgroundCoronal deformity correction with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is an important feature in the treatment of osteoarthritis (OA). The hypothesis of this study was that bone morphology would be different in varus and valgus deformity, both before osteoarthritis development as well as during and after the disease process of OA.Materials and methodsRetrospective study with measurements on preoperative and postoperative full leg standing radiographs of 96 patients who underwent TKA. ...

      BACKGROUND: As the natural healing capacity of damaged articular cartilage is poor, joint surface injuries are a prime target for regenerative medicine. Characterized chondrocyte implantation uses an autologous cartilage cell therapy product that has been optimized for its biological potency to form stable cartilage tissue in vivo.

      PURPOSE: To determine whether, in symptomatic cartilage defects of the femoral condyle, structural regeneration with characterized chondrocyte implantation is ...

      The purpose of this study was to examine whether a bicruciate retaining (BCR) TKA would yield anteroposterior (AP) laxity closer to the native knee than a posterior cruciate ligament retaining (CR) TKA. A BCR TKA was designed and compared to CR TKA and the native knee using cadaver specimens. AP laxity with the CR TKA was greater than the native knee (P=0.006) and BCR TKA (P=0.039), but no difference was found between the BCR TKA and the native knee. No significant differences were found ...

      BACKGROUND: Ligament isometry is a cornerstone in the description of normal knee function and thorough knowledge is mandatory for successful repair of torn ligaments.

      PURPOSE: This study was undertaken to validate a novel experimental model for the study of ligament strains and to determine the length changes in the superficial medial collateral, lateral collateral, and medial patellofemoral ligaments.

      STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive laboratory study.

      METHODS: Passive motions and loaded squats ...

      BACKGROUND: Osteoarthritis after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction receives much attention in orthopaedic science. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is related to increased joint fluid volumes, bone marrow edema, and cartilage biochemical and morphological changes believed to cause fragile joint conditions. These joint conditions may not be able to adequately counter the imposed loads during sports.

      HYPOTHESIS: At 6 months after surgery, knee cartilage displays ...

      BACKGROUND: A precise pre-operative measurement of hindfoot malalignment is paramount to plan and obtain an accurate surgical correction. Hindfoot alignment is currently determined on standard weightbearing radiographs. However this is hampered by the superposition of the skeletal structures. Recent technology developed weightbearing cone beam CT to overcome this problem. The objective is to introduce a clinically relevant and reproducible method to measure hindfoot alignment on ...

      PurposeThe bony insertion sites of the PCL have been studied and described extensively using 2D technology such as macroscopic images, plain radiograph, computerized tomography (CT) and MRI. The purpose of this study is to visualize both the tibial and the femoral bony insertion sites but also the soft tissue anatomy of the native PCL using novel 3D CT imaging. In addition, new concepts of best-fit cylinder and central axis are introduced and evaluated.MethodsNine unpaired knees of ...

      BACKGROUND: Most knee surgeons have believed during TKA neutral mechanical alignment should be restored. A number of patients may exist, however, for whom neutral mechanical alignment is abnormal. Patients with so-called "constitutional varus" knees have had varus alignment since they reached skeletal maturity. Restoring neutral alignment in these cases may in fact be abnormal and undesirable and would likely require some degree of medial soft tissue release to achieve neutral ...

      PurposeThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of two frequently used non-operative treatment techniques for a stiff knee after total knee arthroplasty.MethodsSixty-four patients with a stiff knee after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were randomized into a manipulation under anaesthesia group, or a low load stretch (stretch) group. The patients were followed up for 6 weeks and were evaluated for maximum flexion and extension, range of motion (ROM), pain, stiffness and ...

      Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a very successful procedure, but pain or difficulties during activities still persist in patients. Patient outcomes in TKA surgery can be affected by implant design, alignment or patient-related anatomical factors. This paper presents a numerical sensitivity analysis of several TKA types: a fixed bearing, posterior stabilized prosthesis, a high flexion fixed bearing guided motion prosthesis, a mobile bearing prosthesis and a hinge prosthesis. Each ...

      In 1879, the French surgeon Segond described the existence of a 'pearly, resistant, fibrous band' at the anterolateral aspect of the human knee, attached to the eponymous Segond fracture. To date, the enigma surrounding this anatomical structure is reflected in confusing names such as '(mid-third) lateral capsular ligament', 'capsulo-osseous layer of the iliotibial band' or 'anterolateral ligament', and no clear anatomical description has yet been provided. In this study, the presence ...

      Various authors have indicated that imbalance of the vastus medialis/vastus lateralis muscles might lead to patellofemoral pain syndrome. However, few reports have been published to substantiate such a hypothesis. The purpose of this study was to attempt to set a scale for the normal reflex response times of the vastus medialis oblique and vastus lateralis muscles after a patellar tendon tap and to determine if patellofemoral pain syndrome patients have an alteration in this firing ...
