Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) is used widely as a treatment for symptomatic chondral and osteochondral defects of the knee. Variations of the original periosteum-cover technique include the use of porcine-derived type I/type III collagen as a cover (ACI-C) and matrix-induced autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI) using a collagen bilayer(More)
INTRODUCTION The results for autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) in the treatment of full thickness chondral defects in the knee are encouraging. At present two techniques have been described to retain the chondrocyte suspension within the defect. The first involves using a periosteal cover (ACI-P) and the second involves using a type I/III collagen(More)
We measured joint position sense in the knee by a new method which tests the proprioceptive contribution of the joint capsule and ligaments. The leg was supported on a splint, and held in several positions of flexion. The subjects' perception of the position was recorded on a visual analogue model and compared with the actual angle of flexion. Eighty-one(More)
Human articular cartilage has been separated into surface (approx. 15% of tissue depth) and deep zones (remaining tissue) and the constituent chondrocytes released by enzymic digestion. Subsequent culture either as a low density monolayer or as a suspension over agarose revealed distinct morphological and synthetic behaviour in the two populations. Whilst(More)
Twenty-one patients with lateral compartment osteoarthritis and valgus deformity of the knee underwent distal femoral supracondylar osteotomy (medial closing wedge) between 1983 and 1993 with follow-up ranging from 1 to 8 years. Ten knees had plaster cast immobilization, 5 had fixation with 2 staples supplemented with a plaster cast, and 6 knees had rigid(More)

Four methods of surgical treatment of chondromalacia patellae have been evaluated after periods ranging from two to thirty years (average seven years), to discover the success rate, complications and indications for each. A total of 140 operations had been performed in 98 patients. Overall, satisfactory results were achieved in 25 per cent after forty(More)
A prospective study of 120 consecutive total hip replacements showed that deep suction drains produced maximal drainage volumes in the first 24 hours. Their continued presence resulted in minimal further drainage, did not reduce the likelihood of haematoma formation and led in some cases to the spread of skin organisms into the wound.
Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) and mosaicplasty are methods of treating symptomatic articular cartilage defects in the knee. This study represents the first long-term randomised comparison of the two techniques in 100 patients at a minimum follow-up of ten years. The mean age of the patients at the time of surgery was 31.3 years (16 to 49); the(More)

In all the reported series of impacted femoral neck fractures treated conservatively the incidence of disimpaction is between 8% and 15%. It is impossible at the time the patient presents to predict which fractures will undergo disimpaction. Disimpaction requires a secondary operation to prevent nonunion and subsequent disability. Internal fixation is,(More)
