Bone quality is important for the success of joint prostheses implantation, and the assessment of bone density after total knee arthroplasty by means of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry may be useful for monitoring implant stability. The aim of this study is to suggest a validated analysis protocol for the assessment of bone status after total knee(More)
With the emerging interest in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, new treatment modalities being developed for joint disorders including joint surface lesions and articular cartilage defects. The clinical outcome of these novel approaches appears rather unpredictable and is due to many reasons but definitely also linked to the patient profile. As(More)
Despite significant advances in intraoperative antimicrobial procedures, deep infection remains the most devastating complication following total joint arthroplasty. Clinical studies’ results and safety profile of antibiotic-loaded bone cement are discussed in this review. Antibiotic bone cement prophylaxis is a safe and effective strategy in reducing the(More)
We tested the effectiveness of different intra-articular analgesics and of pre-emptive intra-articular analgesia for arthroscopy-assisted anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) and for operative knee arthroscopy. Eighty-two patients underwent operative knee arthroscopy under selective subarachnoid anaesthesia (group A), and 60 patients underwent(More)
Bone-patellar tendon–bone technique (BPTB) for anterior cruciate ligament injuries is associated with a higher risk of donor-site morbidity. To evaluate whether platelet-rich plasma (PRP), due to its anti-inflammatory properties and capacity to stimulate tissue regeneration, was able to reduce the anterior knee pain, the kneeling pain, and donor-site(More)
The aim of this prospective observational study was to assess the 3-year clinical outcome of distal realignment and membrane-seeded autologous chondrocyte implantation (MACI®) in selected patients with patellofemoral malalignment and large, isolated, patellar cartilage lesions. Twelve patients (14 knees; 6 females, 6 males; mean age 31 years) with Fulkerson(More)
HYPOTHESIS This study investigates the rate of infectious and thromboembolic complications in shoulder arthroscopy and their association with pharmacologic prophylaxis. MATERIALS AND METHODS On behalf of the Italian Society for Knee Surgery, Arthroscopy, Sport Traumatology, Cartilage and Orthopaedic Technologies (SIGASCOT), we asked the members to(More)
BACKGROUND Revision of an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is a complicated and delicate clinical procedure whose results, theoretically, are less satisfactory than those of the first operation. HYPOTHESIS The outcome of a revised anterior cruciate ligament surgery is comparable to primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, with a rate of(More)
We compared motor control function in 50 patients who had undergone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using a bone-tendon-bone graft to that in 50 normal controls. Surgical subjects patients had undergone reconstruction with a one- (n=37) or two-incision (n=13) technique with the same rehabilitation protocol; mean time from the index surgery was 6.1(More)
The single-bundle ACL reconstruction ensures good outcomes and it is a well-established and widespread technique. Nevertheless, some patients still present residual pain and instability. Recent studies have showed that the double-bundle technique restores better natural ACL-fitting kinematics. Long-term clinical studies comparing the two surgical techniques(More)
