BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The trabecular metal tibial monoblock component (TM) is a relatively new option available for total knee arthroplasty. We have previously reported a large degree of early migration of the trabecular metal component in a subset of patients. These implants all appeared to stabilize at 2 years. We now present 5-year RSA results of the TM(More)
Corticosterone (CORT), the predominant glucocorticoid in rodents, is known to damage hippocampal area CA3. Here we investigate how that damage is represented at the cellular and ultrastructural level of analyses. Rats were injected with CORT (26.8 mg/kg, s.c.) or vehicle for 56 days. Cell counts were estimated with the physical disector method. Glial and(More)
Emerging evidence suggests that the appraisal of pain and disability in terms of justice-related themes contributes to adverse pain outcomes. To date, however, research on the relation between perceived injustice and pain outcomes has focused primarily on individuals with musculoskeletal injuries. The primary aim of this study was to investigate the role of(More)
Despite advances in care, infection in total joint arthroplasty remains a serious problem that has yet to be solved. Reported infection rates range from <0.5% in highly specialized centers to a high of 2% as reported at a national level. The epidemiology of total joint arthroplasty remains challenging because of the relatively low, but significant,(More)
OBJECTIVE To test the capillary recruitment hypothesis for the brain with control and hypoxic rats. METHODS Local cerebral blood flow (LCBF) was sharply raised by respiring 10% O2 (hypoxia). LCBF as well as local influx rate constants (K1) and permeability-surface area (PS) products of 14C-antipyrine and 14C-3-O-methyl-D-glucose (30MG) were estimated for(More)

Surgical navigation systems for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery are capable of capturing passive three-dimensional (3D) angular joint movement patterns intraoperatively. Improved understanding of patient-specific knee kinematic changes between pre and post-implant states and their relationship with post-operative function may be important in(More)
Laparoscopic division of the rectum can be challenging due to limitations in stapler design and function coupled with anatomical difficulties encountered in the pelvis. Currently available laparoscopic stapling devices often require multiple firings to achieve complete rectal transection, a phenomenon shown to be associated with an increased rate of(More)
Computer-assisted surgery can be used to measure 3-dimensional knee function during arthroplasty surgery; however, it is unknown if the movement of the knee measured during surgery is related to the in vitro, dynamic state of the knee joint, specifically the knee adduction moment during gait, which has been related to implant migration. The purpose of this(More)
Long term satisfaction of patients with total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has lagged behind that of total hip arthroplasty. One possible reason is the failure of the artificial joint to recreate natural kinematics of the knee. This study evaluated the pre and post implant functional flexion axis in the knees of 285 total knee arthroplasty patients using a(More)
