A high-dose local tranexamic acid has been introduced in total knee arthroplasty for bleeding control. We are not sure about the systemic absorption and side effects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of low dosage of intra-articular tranexamic acid injection combined with 2-hour clamp drain in minimally bleeding computer-assisted surgery(More)
The analysis of the sagittal balance is important for the understanding of the lumbopelvic biomechanics. Results from previous studies documented the correlation between sacro-pelvic orientation and lumbar lordosis and a uniqueness of spino-pelvic alignment in an individual person. This study was subjected to determine the lumbopelvic orientation using(More)
BACKGROUND To conduct a systematic review and network meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) with the aims of comparing relevant clinical outcomes (that is, visual analog scores (VAS), total and sub-Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis index (WOMAC) scores, Lequesne algofunctional index, joint space width change, and(More)
STUDY DESIGN A prospective cohort. PURPOSE To report the short and long term outcomes of fluoroscopically guided lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injection (TFESI) in degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis (DLS) patients. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE TFESI has been widely used for the treatment of lumbosacral radicular pains. However, to our knowledge,(More)
BACKGROUND Recently, a number of studies using intra-articular application of tranexamic acid (IA-TXA), with different dosage and techniques, successfully reduced postoperative blood loss in total knee replacement (TKR). However, best of our knowledge, the very low dose of IA-TXA with drain clamping technique in conventional TKR has not been yet studied.(More)
Introduction. The Infrapatellar fat pad (IPFP) represents an emerging alternative source of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (ASCs). We compared the characteristics and differentiation capacity of ASCs isolated from IPFP and SC. Materials and Methods. ASCs were harvested from either IPFP or SC. IPFPs were collected from patients undergoing total knee(More)
BACKGROUND Patented crystalline glucosamine sulfate (pCGS) and diacerein monotherapy have been recommended for treatment of mild to moderate osteoarthritis (OA), but evidence of efficacy for combined treatments is lacking. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare clinical outcomes (i.e., pain and Western Ontario and McMaster Universities(More)
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the new sensory restoration technique in radial nerve injury using the first branch of dorsal ulnar cutaneous nerve as the donor sensory nerve. MATERIAL AND METHOD Forty formalin-preserved cadavers (18 males and 22 females) were used as the subjects of the present study. The localization of the origin of first branch of dorsal(More)
Low back pain (LBP) is the most common health problem. Many factors have been demonstrated to be fundamental risk factors of LBP such as body mass index (BMI), age and sex. However, so far there have been few studies demonstrating the association between lumbo-pelvic alignment (LPA) and these factors. This present study was aimed to clarify the correlation(More)
BACKGROUND Selective thoracic fusion in type II curve has been recommended by King et al. since 1983. They suggested that care must be taken to use the vertebra that is neutral and stable so that the lower level of fusion is centered over the sacrum. Since then there has been the trend to do shorter and selective fusion of the major curve. This study was(More)
