The aim was to assess if the reduction in polyethylene wear with highly crosslinked polyethylene suggested by studies with knee simulators is confirmed in patients with a knee arthroplasty. The use of a conventional or a highly crosslinked polyethylene was randomly assigned intraoperatively. Twelve months after surgery a knee arthrocentesis was performed(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case report. OBJECTIVE To present a rare case of vertebrobasilar insufficiency (VBI) syndrome secondary to the C6 level isthmic spondylolisthesis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA VBI associated with voluntary head movements is known as the bow hunter syndrome. It may manifest in temporary symptoms of dizziness, syncope, nausea, or motor and(More)
BACKGROUND One of the most frequent reasons for total knee arthroplasty late failure is osteolysis. It has been related to foreign body reaction to polyethylene particles. The aim of this study is to analyse the number, size and morphology of polyethylene particles in synovial fluid in total knee arthroplasty revision and correlate them to the pathology and(More)
Distal clavicle osteolysis after acromioclavicular joint stabilization has only been described after the use of hardware for clavicle stabilization or synthetic graft causing a foreign body reaction. This paper reports a very rare case of distal clavicle osteolysis after modified Weaver-Dunn procedure for the treatment of chronic acromioclavicular joint(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY In recent years cross-linked polyethylenes have been developed in an attempt to reduce the wear, as has been demonstrated in knee simulators. The aim is to assess, by counting particles of polyethylene in synovial fluid, whether the reduction in wear is confirmed in patients with a highly crosslinked polyethylene prosthesis.
