A new computer-assisted method for measuring the tibio-femoral angle in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee.
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the inter- and intraobserver variability in measuring the tibio-femoral angle using our new computer-assisted method, and to compare it with aExpand

Determining the rotational alignment of the tibial component at total knee replacement: a comparison of two techniques.
We prospectively assessed the benefits of using either a range-of-movement technique or an anatomical landmark method to determine the rotational alignment of the tibial component during total kneeExpand

Femoral neck fractures in older patients: indication for osteosynthesis
Abstract. In almost all the patients over 65 years of age with intracapsular femoral neck fractures who we treated over a 2-year period, we used osteosynthesis with Ace 6.5-mm cannulated cancellousExpand
