Rotational component alignment in patient-specific total knee arthroplasty compared with conventional cutting instrument
BackgroundAlthough many studies investigated the accuracy of customized cutting block (CCB), the data on rotational alignment are still lacking. The study aimed to assess whether CCB improved theExpand
Comparison of Customized Cutting Block and Conventional Cutting Instrument in Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Randomized Controlled Trial.
BACKGROUND Customized cutting block (CCB) was designed to ensure the accurate alignment of knee prostheses during total knee arthroplasty. Given the paucity of CCB efficacy data, we compare CCB withExpand
Electric cautery does not reduce blood loss in primary total knee arthroplasty compared with scalpel only surgery a double-blinded randomized controlled trial
PurposeThe purpose of this study was to systematically compare blood loss between the electric cautery and scalpel used in primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA).MethodsWe performed a double-blindExpand
ADAMTS14 gene polymorphism associated with knee osteoarthritis in Thai women.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most prevalent form of arthritis in the elderly. This disease is characterized by breakdown and loss of articular cartilage due to genetic, mechanical and environmentalExpand
Lumbar Epidural Corticosteroid Injection Reduces Subacute Pain and Improves Knee Function in the First Six Weeks After Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Double-Blinded Randomized Trial
Background: Pain control immediately following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has been a focus for orthopaedists. However, control of subacute pain, which may persist up to 3 months, is usually notExpand
Is Regular Knee Radiograph Reliable Enough to Assess the Knee Prosthesis Position?
