Does Patellar Eversion in Total Knee Arthroplasty Cause Patella Baja?
Several proponents of minimally invasive surgery-total knee arthroplasty (MIS-TKA) have suggested patellar eversion during a standard exposure of the knee may cause shortening of the patellar tendonExpand
Distal tibial fractures treated with hybrid external fixation.
Management of distal tibia fractures remains challenging. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether hybrid external fixation, as definite treatment, was associated with satisfactory resultsExpand

The results of knee manipulation for stiffness after total knee arthroplasty with or without an intra-articular steroid injection
Background: Stiffness after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) requiring manipulation has a reported incidence of 1.3-54%. The purpose of this study was to compare the incidence of stiffness warrantingExpand
The effectiveness of two COX-2 inhibitors in the prophylaxis against heterotopic new bone formation: an experimental study in rabbits.
The purpose of this study was to present the effectiveness of 2 cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors, meloxicam and parecoxib, in the prevention of heterotopic ossification. Eighteen white mature male rabbitsExpand
Treatment of stage III-A-1 and III-B-1 periprosthetic knee infection with two-stage exchange arthroplasty and articulating spacer.
The incidence of periprosthetic knee infection is generally low, but the economic impact is great. Treatment should take into account the acuteness of the infection, the overall immune/medical statusExpand
