UNLABELLED In our clinical study, 200 total knee arthroplasties were evaluated to compare the use of the OrthoPilot system with conventional mechanical instrumentation. Long-term outcome of total knee replacement depends mainly on the accuracy of implant positioning and restoration of the mechanical leg axis. Our experience was that navigation could achieve(More)
This retrospective study compared the efficacy of computer navigation and conventional freehand techniques to place acetabular component orientation in the target position of acetabular cup inclination of 45 degrees and anteversion of 20 degrees . We selected 69 patients who had undergone total hip arthroplasty with freehand cup insertion who had computed(More)
The aim of this study was to compare a patient cohort after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in terms of the revision rate and the functional outcome, with and without patella resurfacing. Sixty-six patients (71 TKAs) were implanted with the mobile-bearing knee prosthesis system e.motion UC (Aesculap AG, Tuttlingen, Germany). These patients were divided into 2(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyse a new concept of using the the minimally invasive direct anterior approach (DAA) in total hip replacement (THR) in combination with the leg positioner (Rotex- Table) and a modified retractor system (Condor). We evaluated retrospectively the first 100 primary THR operated with the new concept between 2009 and 2010,(More)
