The effects of drilling force on cortical temperatures and their duration: an in vitro study.
Bone loss due to thermonecrosis may weaken the purchase of surgically placed screws and pins, causing them to loosen post-operatively. The goal of this study was to determine how differences inExpand

Effect of the tibial cut on subsidence following total knee arthroplasty.
In 33 total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) using instrumentation designed to cut the tibia with 0 degree posterior slope, ten tibial components demonstrated at least 2 mm of tibial component subsidence.Expand
