BACKGROUND It is not clear which fixation of total knee arthroplasty obtains the best clinical, functional and radiographic results in people with osteoarthritis and other non-traumatic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis. OBJECTIVES To assess the benefits and harms of cemented, cementless and hybrid knee prostheses fixation techniques in participants(More)
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has evolved particularly since the 1970s, with improvements in implants and surgical instruments, and has thus become an effective intervention for treating knee arthrosis. Many studies have presented rates of satisfactory clinical and radiological results greater than 90%, from follow-ups of over ten(More)
In this article, an original double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction technique is described. The procedure is developed using hamstring tendon grafts while maintaining tibial osseous insertion. Two tibial tunnels are drilled and a simplified and precise outside-in double tunnel femoral drilling technique is utilized. The graft fixation is(More)
Eighty knees of 40 musculoskeletally normal infants whose age ranged from 0 to 24 months (average 9.65 months) were ultrasonographically analyzed. The lengths of the patella, patellar ligament - and the Insall-Salvati index, knee being flexed at 30 degrees , were assessed. The angles of the femoral cartilaginous sulcus knee flexed at 0, 30, 60, and 90(More)
The inclination of the joint line after supracondylar osteotomy of the femur for valgus deformity was studied in 22 patients and 26 knees. The patients (4 males and 18 females) were 17 to 77 years old (mean, 49.5 years). The obliquity of the joint line was measured in positive degrees (medial inclination) and negative degrees (lateral inclination). Mean(More)
An ultrasonographic study was carried out in 25 infants (50 knees) with Down syndrome, whose age ranged from zero to 24 months, average being 13.2 months; 13 were males and 12 were females. The ultrasonographic investigation was performed with the knee being in full extension for the transversal view and in 30 degrees flexion for the sagittal view. The(More)
OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the usefulness of combining static and kinematic magnetic resonance imaging in the evaluation of the femoropatellar joint. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty healthy volunteers (40 knees) and 23 patients (43 knees) were submitted to both static and kinematic magnetic resonance imaging on a 1.5 tesla whole-body magnetic resonance scanner.(More)
PURPOSE To present a new surgical technique for the fixation of partial dislocated osteochondral fragments in athletes with osteochondritis dissecans (OCD) of the knee. TYPE OF STUDY Retrospective case series. METHODS Autologous bone sticks were taken from the ipsilateral tibial metaphysis and used in the arthroscopic fixation of unilateral(More)
Surgical procedures for double-bundle reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligament, which currently use semitendinous and gracilis tendon grafts, have been described in the last decade. Most of the techniques utilize twice the hardware used in single-bundle reconstructions. We report an original anterior cruciate ligament double-bundle reconstruction(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the functional results from the technique of mosaicplasty, in the knees of patients with osteochondral lesions. METHODS Between August 1999 and March 2005, 27 patients underwent mosaicplasty on their knees. Twenty-one were male and six were female. The patients' ages ranged from 16 to 64 years (mean of 38.1 years). Seventeen lesions(More)
