AIM To present the 18 year survival and the clinical and radiological outcomes of the Müller straight stem, cemented, total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS Between 1989 and 2007, 176 primary total hip arthroplasties in 164 consecutive patients were performed in our institution by the senior author. All patients received a Müller cemented straight stem and(More)
There are several total knee arthroplasty designs available with wide variation in features. The long-term results of total knee replacement with a fixed bearing design have shown a high degree of clinical success. However, implant loosening and polyethylene wear became recognized as long-term causes of late failure. Mobile bearing knee replacements were(More)
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) anatomy is very significant if a reconstruction is attempted after its rupture. An anatomic study should have to address, its biomechanical properties, its kinematics, its position and anatomic correlation and its functional properties. In this review, an attempt is made to summarize the most recent and authoritative(More)
Severe trauma induces systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) through the release of proinflammatory mediators. Angiopoietin-2 (Ang-2) is over-produced in sepsis and leads to dysfunction of endothelial cells and subsequent multiple organ dysfunction. In order to define the role of Ang-2 in lethal injury, 45 rabbits were studied; eight were(More)
The congenital pseudarthrosis of the tibia (CPT) is one of the most challenging problems in pediatric orthopedics. The primary treatment goals are outlined as osteosynthesis, stabilization of the ankle mortise by fibular stabilization and lower-limb-length equalization. Despite the fact that each of the aforementioned goals is difficult to be achieved(More)
BACKGROUND The effectiveness of a new delivery system consisting of polymerized dilactide (PLA) with incorporated linezolid was investigated in a rabbit model as a means of treating methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) osteomyelitis. METHODS The PLA-linezolid system was prepared after thorough stirring of PLA with linezolid at a 10:1 ratio.(More)
BACKGROUND The spectrum of injuries to the tibial plateau is so great that no single method of treatment has been proven to be uniformly successful. The purposes of this study were to evaluate the clinical results, to identify the advantages and disadvantages and to take out useful conclusions of the application of the internal and hybrid external fixation(More)
The incidence of surgical site infection and urinary tract infection following orthopaedic procedures has diminished in recent years due to modern antimicrobial prophylaxis. We conducted a case-control study (100 cases, 100 controls) in order to evaluate the risk factors associated with infection after orthopaedic procedures. The following risk factors were(More)
We present the clinical and radiographic outcomes of the cementless low-contact-stress (LCS) rotating-platform total knee arthroplasty. Overall, 423 prostheses were implanted in 393 consecutive patients (30 patients had bilateral total knee replacement) for primary varus gonarthrosis (381 patients) and rheumatoid arthritis (12 patients). There were 81 men(More)
The objective of this study was to capture and analyze the kinetics and kinematics and determine the functional performance of the osteoarthritic knee after a posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) retaining total knee arthroplasty. Kinematic and kinetic gait analysis of level walking was performed in 20 subjects (12 female and 8 male) with knee ostoarthritis.(More)
