PURPOSE This study investigated the incidence of deep venous thrombosis (DVT) in patients undergoing arthroscopic cruciate ligament surgery. METHODS A total of 282 patients were examined by color Doppler ultrasound preoperatively and 3 and 7 days postoperatively. RESULTS DVT was present in 34 of 282 patients (12.1 %); of these, 11 (32.6 %) underwent(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the feasibility of autologous uncultured bone-marrow-derived mononuclear cells (BM-MNCs) in combination with microfracture in a full-thickness articular cartilage defect model so as to provide experimental rationales for clinical applications. METHODS A total of 40 rabbits were divided randomly into groups A, B, C and D (n = 10 each).(More)
BACKGROUND Graft fixation is critical to the restoration of the medial patella of femoral ligament function and long-term success. Numerous fixations at the patella have been described, while the complications including patellar fractures, violation of the posterior patella and delay of tendon-to-bone healing remain significant challenges. Here, we describe(More)
OBJECTIVES To introduce the technique of arthroscopic simultaneous reconstruction of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) using double femoral tunnel, single-bundle transtibial tunnel PCL technique and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) with achilles allograft, and to evaluate the clinical outcome. METHODS Fourteen patients with PCL and ACL injuries after a(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of increased posterior tibial slope or partial posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) release on knee kinematics of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS Anteroposterior laxity, rotational laxity, varus and valgus laxity and maximum flexion angle were evaluated in 6 normal cadaver knees and the knees after TKA at flexion 0(More)
