Patient-specific Total Knee Arthroplasty Required Frequent Surgeon-directed Changes
BackgroundPatient-specific instrumentation potentially improves surgical precision and decreases operative time in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) but there is little supporting data to confirm thisExpand

Lipid metabolism related gene-expression profiling in liver, skeletal muscle and adipose tissue in crossbred Duroc and Pietrain Pigs.
Body-weight differences in animals may be ascribed to genetic and environmental factors. Here we utilized two divergent porcine genotypes, the highly muscled, leaner PietrianxYorkshire pigs and lessExpand

Prevalence of post-traumatic osteoarthritis in morbidly obese patients after acetabular fracture fixation.
BACKGROUND Morbid obesity and osteoarthritis are conditions that place a significant burden on the US healthcare system. Acetabular fracture is a known cause of post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA)Expand

Patient-specific instrumentation in total knee arthroplasty provides no improvement in component alignment.
Improved component alignment in TKA remains a commonly cited benefit of MRI based patient-specific instrumentation (PSI). We hypothesized that PSI would lead to improved alignment versus traditionalExpand

Hybrid Total Knee Arthroplasty Revisited: Midterm Followup of Hybrid versus Cemented Fixation in Total Knee Arthroplasty
The optimal method of fixation in total knee arthroplasty is still debated. Hybrid total knee arthroplasty (TKA), with cemented tibial and cementless femoral components, is a proposed method ofExpand

The rising use of total hip arthroplasty for femoral neck fractures in the United States
Background: We examined the trends in the treatment of femoral neck fractures with arthroplasty in the United States from 2004–2013. Methods: We used the National Inpatient Sample database inExpand

Intraoperative Evaluation of the Anatomic Lateral Distal Femoral Angle and Its Variation due to Positioning
Background/Purpose: Preoperative evaluation of the contralateral anatomic lateral distal femoral angle (aLDFA) at our institution is used to judge coronal plane alignment. In our study, weExpand

Open surgical dislocation for the treatment of femoroacetabular impingement: past, present, and future.
Femoroacetabular impingement results from a lack of clearance between the femoral neck and the acetabulum. This condition is most commonly seen in the young adult presenting with hip pain afterExpand

The Effect of Sacrificing the Posterior Cruciate Ligament in Total Knee Arthroplasties That Use a Highly Congruent Polyethylene Component.
BACKGROUND There is continued debate regarding retention versus sacrificing of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We sought to determine if there was a differenceExpand
