BACKGROUND Malignant degeneration in association with orthopaedic implants is a known but rare complication. To our knowledge, no case of osseous malignant fibrous histiocytoma after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is reported in the literature. CASE PRESENTATION We report a 29-year-old male Turkish patient who presented with severe pain in the(More)
There are various methods to locate the rotation centre of the hip joint on standard pelvic radiographs. When the geometry of both femoral heads is abnormal, a number of methods are available to locate the physiological hip centre from anatomical landmarks on pelvic radiographs. The accuracy and reliability of six methods were retrospectively investigated(More)
BACKGROUND There are multiple revision implant systems currently available for socket revision in revision total hip arthroplasty. Up until now, not all of these systems have been followed up with regards to their long-term use as a revision implantation.For the first time, this study presents the hemispherical porous-coated socket Plasmacup SC, produced by(More)
BACKGROUND Assessment of shoulder mobility is essential for clinical follow-up of shoulder treatment. Only a few high sophisticated instruments for objective measurements of shoulder mobility are available. The interobserver dependency of conventional goniometer measurements is high. In the 1990s an isokinetic measuring system of BIODEX Inc. was introduced,(More)
Ca-activated Cl currents (I(Cl(Ca))) are used frequently as reporters in functional studies of anesthetic effects on G protein-coupled receptors using Xenopus laevis oocytes. However, because anesthetics affect protein kinase C (PKC), they could indirectly affect I(Cl(Ca)) if this current is regulated by phosphorylation. We therefore studied the effect of(More)
BACKGROUND Navigation was introduced into total knee arthroplasty (TKA) to improve accuracy of component position, function and survival of implants. This study was designed to assess the outcome of navigated TKA in comparison with conventional implantation with the focus on rotational component position and clinical mid-term results. METHODS In a(More)
BACKGROUND Closing-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) is successful for the treatment of medial osteoarthritis with varus malalignment. Preoperative risk factors for HTO failure are still controversial. The aim of this study was to elucidate the outcome and assess the influence of risk factors on long term HTO survival. METHODS 199 patients were(More)
BACKGROUND Shoulder complaints, and especially the outlet-impingement syndrome, are a common condition. Among other things, poor posture has been discussed as a cause. A correlation between impingement syndrome and restricted mobility of the thoracic spine (T) has been described earlier, but there has been no motion analysis of the thoracic spine to show(More)
PURPOSE It is assumed that unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA) features kinematics close to the natural knee. Clinical studies have also shown functional benefits for UKA. There is to date only little biomechanical data to support or explain these findings. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether UKA is able to preserve natural knee kinematics(More)
Several operative techniques have been described for recurrent patellar dislocation. Clinical results vary depending on the procedure and indication. The present study aimed to evaluate the clinical outcome of Insall's proximal realignment for recurrent patellar dislocation at mid-term follow-up. Forty-five patients were reviewed with a mean follow-up(More)
