BACKGROUND Navigated total knee arthroplasty (TKA) may improve coronal alignment outliers; however, it is unclear whether navigated TKA improves the long-term clinical results of TKA. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES Does the literature contain evidence of better long-term function and lower revision rates with navigated TKA compared with conventional TKA? METHODS A(More)
Periprosthetic fractures of the tibia and patella associated with total knee arthroplasty are less common than periprosthetic fractures of the distal femur and therefore have been less frequently reported in the literature. Because more total knee replacements are now being performed and implant and patient survival has improved, periprosthetic fractures of(More)
A retrospective review of 467 Oxford UKAs was performed in 387 patients. Thirty-eight knees (8.1%) were revised to TKA at a mean of 49 months, most commonly for lateral compartment OA (47%). The 5-year cumulative survival using revision to TKA was 98.5%. Revisions required short stems in 26% and augments in 21% of cases. The mobile bearing dislocation rate(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical presentation of a labral tear of the acetabulum may be variable, and the diagnosis is often delayed. We sought to define the clinical characteristics associated with symptomatic acetabular labral tears by reviewing a group of patients who had an arthroscopically confirmed diagnosis. METHODS We retrospectively reviewed the records(More)
High variability in drug response and a narrow therapeutic index complicate warfarin therapy initiation. No existing algorithm provides recommendations on refining the initial warfarin dose based on genetic variables, clinical data, and international normalized ratio (INR) values. Our goal was to develop such an algorithm. We studied 92 patients undergoing(More)
UNLABELLED Although total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is an effective and successful procedure, the outcome is occasionally compromised by complications including periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). Accurate and early diagnosis is the first step in effectively managing patients with PJI. At the present time, diagnosis remains dependent on clinical judgment(More)
Patellar resurfacing in total knee arthroplasty remains controversial. This study evaluates the results of resurfacing and nonresurfacing the patella in a randomized controlled, clinical trial at a minimum of 10 years followup. One hundred knees (90 patients) with osteoarthritis were enrolled in a prospective randomized clinical trial using a(More)
A total of 290 consecutive patients who underwent total hip and total knee arthroplasty were prospectively entered into a clinical anticoagulation trial using a 10-day course of Lovenox with the American College of Chest Physicians-1A guidelines. Major complications occurred in 9% of patients; symptomatic deep vein thrombosis occurred in 9 (3.8%) patients,(More)
Patellar resurfacing in total knee arthroplasty remains controversial. This study compared the long-term clinical outcomes of total knee arthroplasties performed with and without the patella resurfaced and is an update of a previous report. Eighty-six patients (118 knees) underwent primary total knee replacement and were randomized into two groups: those(More)
It is critical for appropriate treatment choices in revision total hip arthroplasty that bone stock deficiency be assessed and classified. Acetabular and femoral defects must be separately assessed, although a combined assessment is needed at the time of surgery to select the appropriate match of components for a given patient.
