In a randomized controlled trial, 102 cemented Stanmore 28-mm metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasties (THAs) were compared to 98 metal-on-polyethylene THAs in 195 patients. At a mean follow-up of 10 years, 11 patients (11 hips) were lost to follow-up, 53 patients (55 hips) died, and 6 patients (6 hips) underwent revision. Average age of the surviving(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic value of preoperative patellofemoral osteoarthritis, BMI and age for implant survival of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) performed in patients meeting strict admission criteria. The data and radiographs of 437 unilateral Oxford phase III procedures (Biomet, Bridgend, UK) were analysed. All(More)
A randomized controlled trial was performed to compare the cemented Stanmore metal-on-metal (Biomet, Warsaw, Indiana) total hip arthroplasty (THA; 102 hips) to the cemented Stanmore metal-on-polyethylene (Biomet) THA (98 hips). The primary outcome was clinical performance. Radiological performance, serum cobalt analysis, and prosthetic survival were(More)
Use of an intramedullary rod is advised for the alignment of the femoral component of an Oxford phase-III prosthesis. There are users moving toward extramedullary alignment, which is merely an indicator of frustration with accuracy of intramedullary alignment. The results of our study with 10 cadaver femora demonstrate that use of a short and long(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies on physical activity after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) concentrated mainly on a return to sports activities. OBJECTIVE The objectives of this study were to determine the habitual physical activity behavior of people who had undergone TKA (TKA group) 1 to 5 years after surgery and to examine to what extent they adhered to(More)
BACKGROUND Overweight/obesity in patients after total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a growing problem and is associated with postoperative complications and a negative effect on functional outcome. The objective of this study is to determine to what extent overweight/obesity is associated with physical functioning and health-related quality of life 1 year after(More)
We present the outcome of an independent prospective series of phase-3 Oxford medial mobile-bearing unicompartmental knee replacement surgery. Eight surgeons performed the 154 procedures in a community-based hospital between 1998 and 2003 for patients aged 60 and above. Seventeen knees were revised; in 14 cases a total knee replacement was performed, in 3(More)
Metal-on-metal hip arthroplasty is associated with elevated levels of cobalt and chromium ions. The effects of cobalt and chromium ions on cell number, activity, expression of osteoprotegerin (OPG) and receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa B ligand (RANKL) and oxidative stress on human osteoblast-like cells were addressed. Saos-2 cells were(More)
Popliteal vascular injury and the compartment syndrome of the leg are rare but important complications of knee arthroplasties. Early diagnosis and treatment are of paramount importance in preventing the devastating complications of these conditions. To our knowledge, these complications have not been reported previously after unicompartmental knee(More)
External fixation of 16 Smith's fractures was evaluated after 22 (6-42) months. In 15 patients, the radiographic results were satisfactory. There was a definite correlation between the radiographic and clinical end results. However, 6 patients had residual signs of an upper limb dystrophy. Although external fixation of Smith's fractures results in good(More)
