A consecutive series of patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) using either a mobile-bearing (MB) or a fixed-bearing (FB) implant were studied. Forty-four patients received 57 MB rotating platforms, and 40 patients received 45 FB posterior stabilized implants. At an average 41-month follow-up (range, 2-6 years), no significant differences were(More)
BACKGROUND Patient-specific femoral and tibial cutting blocks produced with use of data from preoperative computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans have been employed recently to optimize component alignment in total knee arthroplasty. We report the results of a randomized controlled trial in which CT scans were used to compare(More)
There are no data regarding the efficacy and safety of minimally invasive hip arthroplasty technique performed by community practice orthopedists. The early clinical and radiographic results of primary total hip arthroplasty using a minimally invasive anterior approach to the hip performed on a fracture table were studied. Two hundred thirty-one consecutive(More)
The tissues surrounding 65 cemented and 36 cementless total joint replacements undergoing revision were characterised for cell types by immunohistochemistry and for cytokine expression by in situ hybridisation. We identified three distinct groups of revised implants: loose implants with ballooning radiological osteolysis, loose implants without osteolysis,(More)
BACKGROUND Femoral continuous peripheral nerve blocks (CPNBs) provide effective analgesia after TKA but have been associated with quadriceps weakness and delayed ambulation. A promising alternative is adductor canal CPNB that delivers a primarily sensory blockade; however, the differential effects of these two techniques on functional outcomes after TKA are(More)
The postoperative leg-length discrepancy was determined radiographically for a consecutive series of 351 patients (408 hips) who underwent bilateral or unilateral primary total hip replacement using a single method of leg-length equalization by preoperative planning with overlay templates. The method of equalization was performed by a measurement of the(More)
Few published reports have been published regarding a comparison of the long-term outcomes between mobile- (MB) and fixed-bearing component designs for knee arthroplasty. The minimum 10-year clinical and radiologic follow-up of an unselected consecutive series of 89 patients (107 knees) who were randomized to have one of these different designs for primary(More)
BACKGROUND Active participation of residents and fellows in the performance of total hip and total knee arthroplasties may affect the outcomes of these procedures. We evaluated the early clinical results and complications associated with primary total hip and knee arthroplasties at a hospital that had both university teaching and private practice(More)
