We studied 58 knees that underwent anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using a patella tendon autograft. The mean age at reconstruction was 30.4 (18–58) years, and the average follow-up was 11.2 (8.6–13.8) years. The presence of osteoarthritis was assessed radiographically using Kellgren and Lawrence’s classification. Osteoarthritis was detected(More)
The authors investigated the hypothesis that navigation system-assisted minimally invasive unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (NA-MIS UKA) produces better short-term clinical results than MIS UKA without a navigation system. After a minimum 2-year follow-up, short-term functional results and component alignment accuracies of 31 knees that underwent NA-MIS(More)
BACKGROUND Range of motion after a total knee arthroplasty is an important indicator of clinical outcome. Recently, a high-flexion posterior cruciate ligament-retaining knee prosthesis was designed to allow greater flexion after total knee arthroplasty. The purpose of this study was to compare range of motion and functional outcomes in patients who received(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the intra-operative stability during double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions (20 knees) using a navigation system and compare the results with those obtained from single-bundle reconstructions (20 knees). After registering the reference points during ACL reconstruction, antero-posterior and(More)
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) has been the most common surgery performed for complications of bipolar arthroplasty. We wanted to evaluate functional results and complications after conversion of bipolar hemiarthroplasty to THA in 25 patients followed for an average of 7.2 years. Indications for conversion included acetabular erosion with well-fixed femoral(More)
BACKGROUND Screw and suture fixations are the most commonly used methods of fixation in treatment of anterior cruciate ligament tibial avulsion fractures. Even though a few biomechanical studies have compared the stability of the 2 fixation techniques, a clinical comparison has not yet been reported. HYPOTHESIS The authors hypothesized that both fixations(More)
The effects of different femoral component designs on intraoperative range of motion were examined in 40 female patients during primary cruciate-retaining (CR) total knee arthroplasty. After complete bone resection and soft tissue balancing, standard CR, high-flexion, and gender-specific knee trials were sequentially inserted, and maximal flexion and(More)
BACKGROUND Several biomechanical studies have supported placing the femoral tunnel at a low position (10 or 2 o'clock) to achieve anterior and rotational knee stabilities after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. However, no firm consensus has been reached regarding the merits and demerits of ACL reconstruction using a low femoral tunnel versus(More)
The surface modification of islets using poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) is being studied as a means of preventing host immune responses against transplanted islets. In this study, to completely shield islets with PEG molecules, we increased the amount of PEG conjugated to islet surfaces, by multiple PEGylation or amplified PEGylation using poly-L-lysine,(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate tibiofemoral kinematics after double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions and compare them with those of successful single-bundle reconstructions and contralateral normal knees using open MR images. We obtained MR images based on the flexion angle without weight-bearing, from 20 patients with(More)
