BACKGROUND Surgical navigation in TKA facilitates better alignment; however, it is unclear whether improved alignment alters clinical evolution and midterm and long-term complication rates. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We determined the alignment differences between patients with standard, manual, jig-based TKAs and patients with navigation-based TKAs, and whether(More)
AIM To compare the safety and effect on tibial diaphyseal fracture bone union of two intramedullary nailing techniques: (1) dynamic locking with early, full weight bearing, and (2) static locking with delayed weight bearing until bone union. PATIENTS AND METHODS This is a retrospective case-control study of closed or type I open tibial diaphyseal(More)
The objective of this study was to analyze the results of a cemented polyethylene model that captures the hip prosthetic head. In a retrospective study we reviewed 36 cemented constrained acetabular liners implanted in patients older than 75 years (mean 83, SD : 4.4), of which 30 patients were aged 80-90 years and 26 were women. The average period of(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY The use of navigation applied to total knee arthroplasty in knees with femoral hardware retained has not been studied. MATERIAL AND METHODS We use navigation in six patients to implant a total knee arthroplasty while retaining the femoral hardware. The retained materials were screws in two cases, diaphyseal plates in another two,(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyse the efficacy of modular femoral stems for the treatment of certain post-operative periprosthetic fractures in patients with hip arthroplasty. Of a total series of 61 modular revision stems, 17 were used to address periprosthetic femoral fractures and 12 of these are the object of this study. The average follow-up was(More)
