Cementless femoral fixation by means of bone ingrowth has been successful in total hip arthroplasty in patients with sufficient bone quality. Consistent bone ingrowth and resultant long-term success involve many factors, including surgical technique, initial mechanical stability achieved at time of implantation, stem design and material, and implant(More)
UNLABELLED The incidence of hip "squeak" associated with ceramic-on-ceramic bearings has been variably reported, ranging from 0.7% to 20.9%. We determined the patients' perception of squeaking in 306 patients (336 hips) in whom ceramic-on-ceramic total hip arthroplasties (THAs) were performed between 1997 and 2005. A questionnaire regarding hip noise was(More)
The purpose was to explore whether there were any pathological characteristics of the end-stage osteoarthritic sclerotic lesion that have potential to participate in cartilage repair. Specimens harvested following total knee surgery were examined for gross pathology including staining with Safranin O. Multiple small sections of the lesion were placed in(More)
The effects of damaged femoral heads on long-term wear in total hip arthroplasties are not well known. In the study reported here, we compared the surface roughness of dislocated femoral heads, retrieved at time of revision, with that of heads revised for reasons other than dislocation. The dislocated heads, including 6 cobalt-chrome (Co-Cr), 2 oxidized(More)
Postoperative flexion is an important factor in the outcome of total knee arthroplasty. Although normal activities of daily living require a minimum of 105° to 110° of flexion, patients from non-Western cultures often engage in activities such as kneeling and squatting that require higher flexion. The desire to achieve greater flexion serves as the driving(More)
We conducted a study to biomechanically evaluate 3 methods of tibial-sided fixation for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: fully threaded interference screw only, interference screw backed with 4.75-mm SwiveLock anchor, and fully threaded bio-interference screw backed with 4.5-mm bicortical screw (all Arthrex). Thirty skeletally mature porcine(More)
Some patients have been less than satisfied with flexion after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). As early designs provided limited flexion, companies have developed high-flexion designs. We conducted a study to compare flexion between 2 standard and 3 high-flexion designs and to compare clinical and radiographic postoperative flexion. Clinical and radiographic(More)
BACKGROUND Conventional nails are being used for an expanding range of fractures from simple to more complex. Angle stable designs are a relatively new innovation; however, it is unknown if they will improve healing for complex fractures. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES When comparing traditional and angle stable nails to treat complex open canine femur fractures, the(More)
