Cementing techniques for the tibial component in primary total knee replacement.
TLDR
A review of the relevant literature regarding all aspects of the cementing of the tibial component at primary TKR showsufficient penetration of cement has been shown to increase implant stability. Expand
Multifidus innervation and muscle assessment post-spinal surgery
TLDR
Posterior instrumented MISS demonstrates a significantly superior preservation of the medial branch of the posterior ramus of the spinal nerve and less muscle atrophy, particularly at adjacent levels when compared to OSS. Expand
Full and surface tibial cementation in total knee arthroplasty: a biomechanical investigation of stress distribution and remodeling in the tibia.
TLDR
Full cementation results in greater stress reduction under the tibial baseplate than surface cementation, suggesting that surface cementations will result in less proximal bone resorption, thus reducing the possibility of aseptic loosening. Expand
Influence of posture on relationships between pelvic parameters and lumbar lordosis: Comparison of the standing, seated, and supine positions. A preliminary study.
TLDR
Whereas PI remains unchanged in a given individual, lumbar lordosis and sacral orientation show significant changes across positions used in daily life, with the greatest changes seen in the seated position. Expand
Anterior Bone Loss in Cervical Disc Arthroplasty
TLDR
ABL occurs at an early stage and typically follows a non-progressive natural history with stable radiographic features after the first year, and most ABL cases are mild, but severe ABL occurs in approximately 3% of CDAs. Expand
Risk factors for anterior bone loss in cervical disc arthroplasty.
TLDR
The development of ABL has no long-term effect on the mechanical functioning of the disc or necessity for revision surgery, although it may increase the rate of autofusion. Expand
Outcomes of the Bryan cervical disc replacement: fifteen year follow-up
TLDR
In a cohort of 20 patients with 15-year clinical and radiological follow-up, the Bryan CTDR has demonstrated a sustained clinical improvement and implant mobility over time, despite a moderate progression of degenerative processes at the prosthetic and adjacent levels. Expand
L5 pedicle subtraction osteotomy: indication, surgical technique and specificities
TLDR
PSO of L5 can be a safe and effective technique to treat and correct fixed sagittal imbalance and provide biomechanical stability and the high complication rate mandates a careful assessment of the risk/benefit ratio of such a major surgery. Expand
Early limited instrumentation of scoliosis in Duchenne muscular dystrophy: is a single-rod construct sufficient?
TLDR
The authors advocate early operative intervention using a limited instrumentation technique in patients with DMD to maintain seating balance and minimize perioperative morbidity. Expand
Is Multilevel Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) Superior to Pedicle Subtraction Osteotomy (PSO) for Degenerative Lumbar Deformity?
TLDR
The anterior-based anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) and posterior-based pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) are 2 techniques utilized to restore lumbr lordosis. Expand
