BACKGROUND As longevity of cementless femoral components enters the third decade, concerns arise with long-term effects of fixation mode on femoral bone morphology. We examined the long-term consequences on femoral remodeling following total hip arthroplasty with a porous plasma-sprayed tapered titanium stem. METHODS Clinical data and radiographs were(More)
AIMS An evidence-based radiographic Decision Aid for meniscal-bearing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) has been developed and this study investigates its performance at an independent centre. PATIENTS AND METHODS Pre-operative radiographs, including stress views, from a consecutive cohort of 550 knees undergoing arthroplasty (UKA or total knee(More)
AIMS Since redesign of the Oxford phase III mobile-bearing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) femoral component to a twin-peg design, there has not been a direct comparison to total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Thus, we explored differences between the two cohorts. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 168 patients (201 knees) underwent medial UKA with the(More)
Dear Colleague: Precise measurements and clear identifi cation of bony landmarks are key to successful orthopedic surgery. The use of computer-assisted navigation, especially in minimally invasive surgery, maintains clear visibility during procedures, allowing the surgeon to obtain accurate measurements necessary for positioning implants in total hip(More)
