Successful total hip arthroplasty with the Metha short-stem prosthesis (B. Braun Aesculap; Tuttlingen, Germany) depends on the correct indication and an accurate preoperative measurement of the femoral bone shape. Intraoperatively, bone quality, osteotomy, and implant position are of particular importance. Navigation assists with the selection of modular(More)
Short-stem prostheses with modular necks were implanted using a modified Watson-Jones approach in 55 cases from November 2004 to May 2006. Twenty-eight cases were navigated using the OrthoPilot navigation system (B. Braun Aesculap, Tuttlingen, Germany). Primary stability, ease of minimal invasive implantation, and restoration of the biomechanics were(More)
The anterior cruciate ligament in 30 dogs was transected and repaired by simple suture. In every other dog, fibrin adhesive (Tisseel Kit, Immuno AG, Vienna, Austria) was applied to the transection area before suturing. The proportion of organized versus unorganized and inflammatory tissue formation was assessed histologically. At 3 weeks, the amount of(More)
PURPOSE The prevalence of osteoporosis has continuously increased over the past decades and it is set to increase substantially as life expectancy rises steadily. Fragility or osteoporotic fractures of the pelvis often occur after low energy falls e.g. from standing, however, some patients present with assumed insufficiency fractures of the pelvis without a(More)
The purpose of this observational study was to evaluate serum levels of 25-OH-D in patients scheduled to undergo elective hip or knee arthroplasty. We hypothesised that 25-OH-D level is an independent risk factor for length of stay in orthopaedic patients after elective hip or knee arthoplasty. 25-OH-D levels were measured in 1083 patients admitted to an(More)
