Fourteen lateral compartment arthroplasties with an average follow-up period of 89 months revealed 11 excellent results. A review of the literature corroborates these follow-up results. In patients with valgus gonarthritis or traumatic deformity, lateral unicompartment replacement is recommended instead of high tibial osteotomy if the angulation is greater(More)

In the past decade, two concepts have caused considerable controversy in orthopedic surgery of the knee. Some orthopedic centers contend that osteotomy of the tibia is the procedure of choice for unicompartmental gonarthrosis of the knee and resist the concept of unicompartmental arthroplasty. The other concept is that if unicompartmental arthroplasty is(More)
Nonmental-backed, cemented, unicompartmental knee arthroplasty has a survivorship rate in this multicenter investigation at ten years of 91.4% (+/- 2.8). High levels of patient weight were associated with increased need for revision arthroplasty. Overall, men had a lower revision rate (2.4%) compared with women (3.9%). Valgus postoperative alignment was(More)

Fifty-six consecutive knees were operated on for single compartment disease using the Marmor modular knee with a minimum follow-up of four years. The information obtained indicates that single compartment replacement is valuable in restoring function and relieving pain in a high percentage of patients. There was no evidence of late degeneration of the(More)

The long-term results of 60 Modular Marmor knee unicompartmental arthroplasties with a minimum ten-year follow-up period were reviewed. Valgus, varus, and flexion contracture deformities were corrected. The range of motion was not affected by the arthroplasty, and early postoperative motion prevented the need for manipulation of the knee. Seventy percent of(More)

Osteonecrosis of the medial and lateral compartments of the right knee was observed in a 69-year-old man who had never been treated by steroids. Spontaneous osteonecrosis also developed in the left knee. He was treated by total knee arthroplasty. Lateral compartment osteonecrosis has not been reported previously, except in patients receiving steroid therapy.
