We evaluated the efficacy of periarticular infiltration of corticosteroid, opioid, and a local anesthetic by comparing pain scores, knee flexion, and quadriceps function on the day of surgery, first postoperative day, day of discharge, and 2 and 4 weeks after surgery between the infiltrated and the noninfiltrated knee in 40 patients undergoing simultaneous(More)
Forty extra-articular deformities (22 femoral and 18 tibial) in 34 patients (mean age, 63.1 years) were studied. Mean coronal extra-articular deformity was 9.3 degrees ; mean preoperative limb alignment was 166.7 degrees . Three limbs underwent simultaneous corrective osteotomy; the rest were treated with intra-articular correction during computer-assisted(More)
BACKGROUND Computer navigation has improved accuracy and reduced the percentage of alignment outliers in TKA. However, the characteristics of outliers and the risk factors for limb malalignment after TKA are still unclear. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We therefore addressed the following questions: (1) What is the incidence and characteristics of outliers for(More)
BACKGROUND The weightbearing axis of the limb goes from the pelvis to the ground and includes the hindfoot. However, the influence of hindfoot alignment on mechanical axis and overall limb alignment after TKA is unclear. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We therefore addressed the following questions: (1) Does hindfoot alignment change after TKA for knee osteoarthritis?(More)
Despite several advantages of medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy, this procedure has been noted to have a high rate of complications especially with the use of a spacer plate for fixation. We retrospectively evaluated the early complications of 138 medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomies done using autologous tricortical iliac bone graft and(More)
Ganglion cysts of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) are uncommon lesions found incidentally on MRI and arthroscopy. Twenty patients (11 males and nine females) with the mean age of 35 years presenting with a variety of knee signs and symptoms were found to have PCL cysts on MRI. Out of these, thirteen patients (65%) had isolated symptomatic PCL cysts(More)
Our aim was to evaluate the alteration in angle of posterior slope of the tibia and the degree of patellar height following medial opening wedge high tibia osteotomy(HTO) using autologous tricortical iliac bone graft in 32 consecutive patients. Twenty three females and nine males underwent medial opening wedge high tibia osteotomy (HTO) using autologous(More)
The purpose of this cadaveric study was to study the effect of plane of osteotomy on incidence of lateral cortex fracture and to define a “safe zone” through which medial open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) could be performed with minimal risk of lateral cortex fracture. Medial open HTO was performed in nine fresh frozen human cadavers (18 knees) with(More)
Forty-two tibial and 5 fibular stress fractures in 34 patients with knee arthritis were radiologically classified into intraarticular malunited and ununited fractures, and extraarticular impending, acute, united, malunited, and ununited fractures. Depending on fracture type, total knee arthroplasty was performed using long-stem tibial component, metal(More)
Ethnic factors affect bone mass acquisition during childhood. The aim of our study was to establish normative data for bone mineral content (BMC) and bone mineral density (BMD) in healthy Korean children and adolescents, using 446 lumbar spine scans (224 males and 222 females) and 364 proximal femur scans (181 males and 183 females) of healthy children(More)
