The aim of this study is to assess the radiological outcome of conventional techniques versus computer-navigated surgery for total knee arthroplasty. Ninety patients with knee arthritis were prospectively randomized into 3 groups: conventional technique: extramedullary (EM) and intramedullary (IM) tibia guide versus computer navigation surgery (CAS). Two(More)
BACKGROUND Despite the proven efficacy of both intravenous (IV) and intra-articular (IA) tranexamic acid (TXA) in reducing blood loss during total knee arthroplasty (TKA), the ideal route of administration remained debatable. This study aimed to compare the effect of IV versus IA TXA on transfusion incidences, perioperative blood loss and postoperative(More)
The success of total knee replacement (TKR) depends on optimal soft-tissue balancing, among many other factors. The objective of this study is to correlate post-operative anteroposterior (AP) translation of a posterior cruciate ligament-retaining TKR with clinical outcome at two years. In total 100 patients were divided into three groups based on(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the clinical outcome of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) after previous high tibial osteotomy (HTO) using cruciate retaining (CR) versus posterior stabilized (PS) prostheses. METHODS Between 2001 and 2010, 133 patients who underwent TKA after previous HTO were included in this study and prospectively followed up for(More)
The aim of this study is to determine the success rate in eradication of early methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) prosthetic joint infection. Rate of prosthesis retention and functional outcome between patients with prosthesis retention and prosthesis revision were compared. All patients who underwent primary total knee arthroplasty between(More)
Robot-assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) improves the accuracy and precision of component implantation and mechanical axis (MA) alignment. Joint-line restoration in robot-assisted TKA is not widely described and joint-line deviation of>5mm results in mid-flexion instability and poor outcomes. We prospectively randomised 60 patients into two groups: 31(More)
PURPOSE To compare the short-term functional outcome after computer-assisted total knee arthroplasty (TKA) versus conventional TKA. METHODS 23 men and 67 women aged 48 to 80 years were randomised to undergo (1) conventional TKA using an intramedullary guide, (2) conventional TKA using an extramedullary guide, or (3) computer-assisted TKA. Two senior(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the radiologic outcomes of total knee arthroplasty using the conventional technique with those using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) techniques. Ninety patients were randomized to undergo conventional (control), MIS mini-incision mid-vastus (mini), or MIS side-cutting (side cut) techniques for their total knee(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of a new pinless navigation system (BrainLAB(®) VectorVision(®) Knee 2.5 Navigation System) as an intra-operative alignment check in total knee arthroplasty using conventional cutting jigs. METHODS 200 patients who underwent total knee arthroplasty using conventional technique or pinless(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to investigate the accuracy of pinless navigation (BrainLAB(®) VectorVision(®) Knee 2.5 Navigation System) as an intra-operative alignment guide in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The authors hypothesized that pinless navigation would reduce the proportion of outliers in conventional TKA, without a significant increase in the(More)
