We made a retrospective study of 55 primary total hip arthroplasties in 53 patients with a history of previous acetabular fracture. The mean follow-up was 7.5 years and the average age at fracture was 48.7 years. The incidence of radiographic femoral loosening (29.4%), symptomatic loosening (15.7%), and femoral revision (7.8%) were similar to those(More)
Thirty-eight ankles in 36 patients who underwent fusion for failed total ankle arthroplasty were reviewed. Twenty-two patients were women and 14 were men, and their mean age was 56.8 years. The fusion methods performed in the 38 ankles were malleolar resection in 13, intercalated bone graft in 20, and posterior tibiotalocalcaneal fusion in 5. Fixation was(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to preliminarily evaluate the efficacy and outcomes of injectable genetically engineered chondrocytes virally transduced with TGF-β1 (GEC-TGF-β1) compared to placebo. DESIGN A multi-center, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized study of adults with knee osteoarthritis. A total of 102 patients were 2:1(More)
A retrospective study of 94 knees with postoperative continuous passive motion (CPM) therapy was compared with a control group of 116 knees with no postoperative CPM following kinematic condylar total knee arthroplasty (TKA) performed in 1983. The diagnoses were similar in both groups, with osteoarthritis in 167 knees, rheumatoid arthritis in 34 knees,(More)
Sixteen total knee arthroplasties performed between 1977 and 1985 in 13 patients with prior ipsilateral hip arthrodesis or ankylosis were studied to determine the preferred sequence and long-term follow-up of procedures in this clinical setting. Twelve of 16 underwent fusion takedown and total hip arthroplasty prior to knee replacement. The average age at(More)
BACKGROUND Factor-Xa inhibitors have been introduced for prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) after joint arthroplasty. However, these agents could also be associated with bleeding or wound complications after surgery. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed a consecutive series of 59 patients (31 knees, 28 hips) undergoing joint arthroplasty at a(More)
We prospectively monitored pain scores on 24 patients who underwent bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Patients were blinded to receiving either a functional or placebo pain control infusion pumps. After 3 days, pump volume was recorded, and patients were asked to identify which knee they believed received the functional pain control infusion pump.(More)
