The purpose of this study was to evaluate, via experimental models, the effect of larger head sizes for total hip arthroplasty on the type of impingement, range of motion (ROM), and joint stability. Testing was conducted using an anatomic full-size hip model (anatomic goniometer) and a novel anatomic dislocation simulator with 28-, 32-, 38-, and 44-mm(More)
Fractures of the olecranon process of the ulna typically occur as a result of a motor-vehicle or motorcycle accident, a fall, or assault. Nondisplaced fractures can be treated with a short period of immobilization followed by gradually increasing range of motion. Open reduction and internal fixation is the standard treatment for displaced intra-articular(More)
The aim of this prospective multicentre study was to report the patient satisfaction after total knee replacement (TKR), undertaken with the aid of intra-operative sensors, and to compare these results with previous studies. A total of 135 patients undergoing TKR were included in the study. The soft-tissue balance of each TKR was quantified(More)
BACKGROUND Revisions of the acetabular component of a total hip arthroplasty have a higher rate of complications, particularly loosening and dislocation, than do primary procedures. The purpose of this study, in which the results of a consecutive series of revisions performed with the Harris-Galante Porous acetabular component by a single surgeon were(More)
Children present with chest wall deformities to their pediatrician because of physiologic and psychologic causes. We have a 22-year experience in the operative management of more than 300 of these children. Initial evaluation should accurately categorize the deformity, determine the severity, assess for associated problems and refer the child at an(More)
We report on acquisition of key data from the clinical medical record, surgical data, radiologic studies, and patient surveys for a novel digital total hip arthroplasty (THA) registry that includes electronic capture of digital radiographic images into a database on an internet platform for query. We now have the ability to collect demographic and operative(More)
One treatment strategy for recurrent dislocation after total hip arthroplasty is the use of a constrained acetabular component. A major drawback of currently available constrained components is the limited range of motion (ROM). We present a novel constrained component that employs a monopolar, highly cross-linked polyethylene liner with cutouts oriented to(More)
Recently, technological advances have made it possible to quantify pounds of pressure across the bearing surface during TKA. This multicenter evaluation, using intraoperative sensors, was performed for two reasons: 1) to define "balance" 2) to determine if patients with balanced knees exhibit improved short-term clinical outcomes. Outcomes scores were(More)
Although total knee arthroplasty has a high success rate, poor outcomes and early revision are associated with ligament imbalance. This multicenter evaluation was performed in order to provide 1-year followup of a previously reported group of patients who had sensor-assisted TKA, comparing the clinical outcomes of quantitatively balanced versus unbalanced(More)
