Patellar Tendon Versus Doubled Semitendinosus and Gracilis Tendons for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
The results of intraarticular anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with either the patellar tendon or the semitendinosus and gracilis tendons (four strands) were prospectively compared in aExpand

Surgical treatment of recurrent dislocation of the patella.
Sixty-seven patients (69 knees) with recurrent patellar dislocation underwent either a lateral release (20 knees), a proximal realignment (14 knees), a distal realignment (16 knees), or a combinedExpand

Application of bone morphogenetic proteins to femoral non-unions: a 4-year multicentre experience.
Fracture non-unions often complicate orthopaedic trauma. BMPs (bone morphogenetic proteins) are currently considered the most appealing osteoinductive agents. Applications of BMP-7 since January 2004Expand

Clinical applications of BMPs.
Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are polypeptides discovered by Marshall Urist in 1965 and later defined by his co-workers as multifunctional cytokines involved in osteoinduction. They are membersExpand

A Comparison Between Medial Meniscus Repair, Partial Meniscectomy, and Normal Meniscus in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstructed Knees
A clinical, radiographic, and scintigraphic comparative study was performed on 57 consecutive successful patellar tendon anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions for chronic laxity. Patients wereExpand

Cost effectiveness of tibial nonunion treatment: A comparison between rhBMP-7 and autologous bone graft in two Italian centres.
Current evidences show that recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 7 (rhBMP-7, eptotermin alfa) can be considered an effective alternative to autologous bone graft (ABG) in the treatment ofExpand

Recurrent dislocation of patella: three kinds of surgical treatment.
The authors compare three surgical techniques for treatment of recurrent dislocation of patella. The best results, even in the correction of lateral patellar displacement, were achieved with proximalExpand

Modular Endoprostheses for Nonneoplastic Conditions: Midterm Complications and Survival
The use of modular endoprostheses is a viable option to manage both tumor resection and severe bone loss due to nonneoplastic conditions such as fracture sequelae, failed osteoarticular grafts,Expand
