Patellar resurfacing in total knee arthroplasty is a topic debated in the literature. Concerns include fracture, dislocation, loosening, and extensor mechanism injury. Residual anterior knee pain has been reported when the patella is not resurfaced. One hundred patients with osteoarthritic knees were prospectively randomized to either have their patella(More)
Computer-assisted surgery (CAS) systems improve alignment accuracy in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) but have not been widely implemented. Eighty knees underwent TKA using an accelerometer-based, portable navigation device (KneeAlign 2; OrthAlign Inc, Aliso Viejo, California), and the radiographic results were compared with 80 knees performed using a(More)
OBJECTIVE : This study was designed to test in a laboratory setting a novel computer-assisted fluoroscopic technique and a conventional fluoroscopic technique for open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) of hip fractures. Our hypothesis is that a novel computer-assisted fluoroscopic technique will achieve acceptable guidewire placement in one pass, with(More)
Pelvic tilt (PT) affects the functional anteversion and inclination of acetabular components in total hip arthroplasty (THA). One-hundred and thirty-eight consecutive patients who underwent unilateral primary THA were reviewed. Most cases had some degree of pre-operative PT, with 17% having greater than 10° of PT on standing pre-operative radiographs. There(More)
We used a large prospective institutional registry to determine if there is a 'safe zone' that exists for acetabular component position within which the risk of hip dislocation is low and if other patient and implant factors affect the risk of hip dislocation. Patients who reported a dislocation event within six months after hip arthroplasty surgery were(More)
Complications involving the knee extensor mechanism and patellofemoral joint occur in 1% to 12% of patients following total knee arthroplasty and have major negative effects on patient outcomes and satisfaction. The surgeon must be aware of intraoperative, postoperative, and patient-related factors that can increase the rate of these problems. This review(More)
BACKGROUND Although cross-table lateral radiographs are commonly used to measure acetabular component version after THA, recent studies suggest that CT-based measurement is more accurate. This has been attributed to variations in pelvic tilt, pelvic rotation, and component inclination. Furthermore, it has been suggested, based on limited data, that even(More)
Extramedullary (EM) tibial alignment guides have demonstrated a limited degree of accuracy in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The purpose of this study was to compare the tibial component alignment obtained using a portable, accelerometer-based navigation device versus EM alignment guides. One hundred patients were enrolled in this prospective, randomized(More)
Tibial intramedullary or extramedullary alignment guides have not been shown to be highly accurate in performing the tibial resection in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Since May 2010, a total of 42 knees underwent a TKA using a hand-held, accelerometer-based surgical navigation system for performing the tibial resection (KneeAlign; OrthAlign Inc, Aliso(More)
In a consecutive series of 536 unilateral primary total hip arthroplasties (THAs) and 598 unilateral primary total knee arthroplasties (TKAs), the use of a post-operative drain was associated with $538 additional cost per THA, and $455 for TKA. The use of a drain increased hospital length of stay (LOS) for THA, but not for TKA. In both groups, the use of a(More)
