BACKGROUND Stiffness complicating TKA is a complex and multifactorial problem. We suspected internally rotated components compromised motion because of pain, patellar maltracking, a tight medial flexion gap, and limited femoral rollback on a conforming lateral tibial condyle. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We sought to determine: (1) the incidence of internal(More)
Atlantic cod, Gadus morhua, respond to starvation first by mobilising hepatic lipids, then muscle and hepatic glycogen and finally muscle proteins. The dual role of proteins as functional elements and energetic reserves should lead to a temporal hierarchy of mobilisation where the nature of a function dictates its conservation during starvation. We examined(More)
BACKGROUND Door openings disrupt the laminar air flow and increase the bacterial count in the operating room (OR). We aimed to define the incidence of door openings in the OR during primary total joint arthroplasty (TJA) surgeries and determine whether measures were needed and/or possible to reduce OR staff traffic. METHODS We recorded the number of door(More)
In revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA), the internal diameter of metal cones may limit the ability of the stem to properly fill the medullary canal. We prospectively studied 115 patients who underwent revision TKA with uncemented stems to evaluate the effect of metal cones on mechanical alignment and stem positioning. Correction on the mechanical(More)
BACKGROUND Although primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) shows good clinical, functional and radiological results, it can be complicated by certain conditions or pathologies. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the global performance of short cemented metaphyseal stem components in patients undergoing complex primary TKA. METHODS This is a(More)
To our knowledge, proximal tibiofibular joint instability has never been reported in a patient with a total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We present the case of a patient with anterolateral proximal tibiofibular joint instability associated with a complex primary TKA. In 2010, a male patient of 47 years was referred for TKA after posttraumatic osteoarthritis.(More)
