We describe a new technique and aim to justify its use in total hip arthroplasty. The incision is short and there is minimal soft tissue dissection: piriformis and most of quadratus femoris remain intact. A meticulous capsular repair is performed. Patients are mobilized without restrictions. One hundred total hip arthroplasties by the standard posterior(More)
The literature contains limited yet controversial information regarding whether a fixed or a mobile bearing implant should be used in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). This randomized study was to further document the performance and comparison of the two designs. Fifty-six knees in 48 patients (mean age of 72 years) undergoing medial UKA were(More)
In Australia, there are no current national estimates of the risks of transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV) or human T-lymphotrophic virus (HTLV) by musculoskeletal tissue transplantation. We determined the prevalence rates of antibodies against HIV (anti-HIV), HCV (anti-HCV) and HTLV(More)
Screening of musculoskeletal tissue donors with nucleic acid testing (NAT) for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) has been implemented in the United States and other developed nations. However, in contrast to the donor demographics in the United States, the majority of Australian musculoskeletal tissue donations are primarily(More)
STUDY DESIGN Postero-lateral lumbar fusion in a rabbit model was performed to compare the bone induction potential of autograft, insoluble bone gelatin (ISBG), osteogenic protein-1 (OP-1), and the combination of ISBG and OP-1. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the efficiency of ISBG as a carrier/enhancer for OP-1 in a rabbit spinal fusion model. SUMMARY OF(More)
Higher dislocation rates have been reported with the posterior approach to the hip. Empirical studies suggest that careful repair of the posterior structures significantly reduces this risk. However, studies examining the integrity of repair using plain radiographs and metallic markers have reported high failure rates. To explain this discrepancy, we(More)
BACKGROUND Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory arthritis affecting approximately 2% to 3% of the population globally, and is characterized by both peripheral articular manifestations and axial skeletal involvement. Conventional therapies for PsA have not been fully satisfactory, though natural products (NPs) have been shown to be highly(More)
Bone remodelling is a continuous process by which bone resorption by osteoclasts is followed by bone formation by osteoblasts to maintain skeletal homeostasis. These two forces must be tightly coordinated not only quantitatively, but also in time and space, and its malfunction leads to diseases such as osteoporosis. Recent research focusing on the(More)
