BACKGROUND Administration of tranexamic acid topically and intravenously has demonstrated effectiveness in decreasing blood loss and transfusion rates. METHODS We randomized 131 patients undergoing primary total knee arthroplasty to receive either intracapsular (69) or intravenous tranexamic acid (62). Postoperative blood loss was calculated using the(More)
UNLABELLED Management of large bone defects in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) usually has involved modular prostheses with metal augments, structural allografts, and megaprostheses. We retrospectively reviewed the outcome of treatment of major bone defects for 74 patients (79 knees) who had revision TKAs with structural allografts; nine patients were lost to(More)
BACKGROUND High-flexion TKA prostheses are designed to improve flexion and clinical outcomes. Increased knee flexion can increase implant loads and fixation stresses, creating concerns of premature failure. Whether these goals can be achieved without premature failures is unclear. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We assessed pain relief, knee motion, function,(More)
