Navigated total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is promoted as a means to improve limb and prosthesis alignment. This study involved a systematic review and meta-analysis for all randomized controlled trials in the literature from 1986 to 2009 comparing alignment outcomes between navigated and conventional TKA. Alignment outcomes were pooled using a random-effects(More)
Research in developed countries showed that many citizens perceive that radio signals transmitted by mobile phones and base stations represent potential health risks. Less research has been conducted in developing countries focused on citizen perceptions of risks and benefits, despite the recent and rapid introduction of mobile communication technologies.(More)
PURPOSE Lower extremity and pelvis kinematics have been shown to be abnormal in patients with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). We conducted this systematic review to evaluate the current status of gait and lower extremity kinematics as an outcome measure in patients treated surgically for FAI. METHODS We searched the Embase, Medline, and PubMed(More)
BACKGROUND Arthroscopic surgery for degenerative meniscal tears is a commonly performed procedure, yet the role of conservative treatment for these patients is unclear. This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluates the efficacy of arthroscopic meniscal débridement in patients with knee pain in the setting of mild or no concurrent osteoarthritis of the(More)
This retrospective study examined the relationship between the mechanical axis of the knee throughout its functional arc and functional outcomes in patients with computer-assisted navigation total knee arthroplasty. Data on final intraoperative functional arc alignment were obtained on 76 patients who had computer-assisted navigation total knee arthroplasty(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this systematic review is to evaluate the consistency of the reporting of clinical and radiographic outcomes after arthroscopic management of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI). METHODS Two databases (Medline and EMBASE) were screened for clinical studies involving the arthroscopic management of FAI. A full-text review of eligible(More)
Post-operative spine surgical site infections are associated with substantial morbidity, mortality, and economic burden. Intrawound vancomycin may prevent infections after spine surgery, but recent studies have reported conflicting results. The objectives of this systematic review and meta-analysis were to determine: (1) In patients undergoing spine(More)
PURPOSE This international survey was conducted to assess the perceptions of orthopaedic surgeons regarding the diagnosis and management of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) as well as to explore the current demographic characteristics of surgeons performing FAI surgery. METHODS A survey was developed using previous literature, focus groups, and a(More)
Postmenopausal osteoporosis is associated with microarchitectural deterioration and increased risk of fracture. Osteoporosis therapy effectively reduces the risk of vertebral, nonvertebral, and hip fracture and has been associated with increased survival. Currently approved treatments for osteoporosis include bisphosphonates, denosumab, selective estrogen(More)
PURPOSE This systematic review explored reported outcomes addressing internal snapping hip as well as comparing outcomes between open and arthroscopic management of internal snapping hip syndrome. METHODS Two databases (Embase and Medline) were screened for clinical studies involving the surgical management of internal snapping hip syndrome. Two reviewers(More)
