Patellofemoral joint kinematics, contact areas, and contact pressures were measured concomitantly before and after total knee arthroplasty in 10 fresh frozen human cadaver knees using an Instron machine, a custom patellofemoral joint testing jig, axial bone markers, a continuous video digitizing system, and Fuji pressure sensitive film. The implant used in(More)
Five human anatomic specimen knees were used to determine the effect of patellar component position on patellofemoral kinematics, contact pressures, and contact areas after total knee arthroplasty using a polyethylene, domed patellar component. Each patellar component was positioned at the anatomic center of the resected patellar surface and then(More)
Patellofemoral joint kinematics, contact areas, contact pressures, and contact patterns were assessed after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) using human cadaver knees. Two contemporary TKA systems with anatomic patellofemoral joints were implanted and tested under anatomically based loading conditions. An electromagnetic tracking system was used to evaluate(More)

Flow rate studies on various membrane and slit valve shunt combinations in the upright (hanging) position were carried out to compare their function with and without an Anti-Siphon-Device (ASD) in relationship to various proximal pressures and various distal catheter lengths. Advantages and disadvantages of the numerous valve types and shunt combinations(More)
