BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of both bundles of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) on knee stability, anterior-posterior translation (APT) and internal (IR) and external (ER) rotation in cadaveric knees using a computer navigation system. METHODS The APT, IR, and ER of the knees were recorded in the intact(More)
Frequency of knee joint osteoarthritis has been growing over the last years. Range of degeneration involvement of the knee joint varies from unicompartmental to tricompartmental. The medial part of the knee is damaged most frequently. The solution of serious knee joint degeneration is a total replacement by endoprosthesis. It is indicated not only in the(More)
Recently an articular cartilage repair has been given much attention in the orthopaedic field. Cartilage regeneration capacity is very limited. Optimal approach seems to be a delivery of natural growth factors. Autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains proliferative and chemoattractant growth factors. The objective of the present study was to determine(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The aim of the study was to assess the accuracy of axis deformity correction achieved by high-tibial valgus osteotomy either without or with a computer-assisted kinematic navigation system, on the basis of comparing the planned and the achieved frontal axis of the leg. Comparisons of mechanical axis deviation were made using both preand(More)
