BACKGROUND Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction surgery and technique have changed over the past decade. HYPOTHESIS Modern arthroscopic management of an anterior cruciate ligament tear using patellar tendon autograft offers a high patient satisfaction rate and good clinical results over the long term. However, it may be associated with osteoarthritis(More)
INTRODUCTION Accurate implantation of the prosthesis components is a prognostic factor for long-term total knee arthroplasty survival as it reduces wear and loosening failure. Computer-assisted navigation systems have proved to produce accurate bone cuts orthogonal to the mechanical axis. Proper rotational alignment of the femoral component is one of the(More)
INTRODUCTION Proper positioning of the prosthesis components in total knee arthroplasty is an important factor for satisfactory outcomes such as mobility, pain and wear. If an independent cutting technique is performed, rotational alignment of the femoral component should adapt patient's specific anatomy. The distal epiphyseal femoral torsion (DEFT) is(More)
BACKGROUND Patellofemoral instability following total knee arthroplasty is a very common complication which may result from a defective rotational positioning of the femoral component. However, rotational landmarks for optimal orientation are not unequivocal. Moreover, no proven correlation has yet been established between preexisting rotational malposition(More)
INTRODUCTION After multiple-ligament injuries and dislocations of the knee, clinical assessment of the soft tissues is difficult and MRI is generally performed. HYPOTHESIS MRI is a reliable examination, providing a precise and reproducible assessment of soft-tissue lesions after multiple-ligament injuries or dislocations of the knee. MATERIALS AND(More)
