As surgeons learn to perform minimally invasive hip arthroplasty procedures, the various techniques will evolve and one or two approaches may eventually become the standard. Currently, most of these procedures are reserved for the nonmorbidly obese patients; however, as techniques are perfected and surgeons gain experience, this patient population may(More)
A temporary articulating antibiotic-impregnated cement spacer for use during the first stage of a two-stage revision of a total knee replacement that had failed because of infection was developed by one of us (W.M.G.). It is simply a knee prosthesis made of methylmethacrylate and antibiotics that is manufactured intraoperatively with use of instruments,(More)
Patella resurfacing in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) reduces postoperative complications and revisions; however, the optimal cutting depth and angle that minimize patellar strain and fracture remain unclear. We performed three-dimensional finite element analysis (FEA) of resurfacing cutting depth and obliquity to assess the stresses in each component of the(More)
In serum and sputum samples from 15 patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) suffering from chronic Pseudomonas aeruginosa lung infections, concentrations and/or activities of elastase derived from polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN), cathepsin G, myeloperoxidase (MPO), and superoxide dismutase (SOD), as well as concentrations of the proteinase inhibitors alpha(More)
As the senior citizen population has grown, the incidence of osteoarthritis and joint replacement has increased. Bilateral total knee arthroplasty (BTKA) can be performed sequentially during one anesthetic. Studies have shown the complication rates differ only slightly for total knee arthroplasty procedures performed sequentially during one anesthetic or(More)
The purpose of the present study is to determine whether the anconeus muscle contracts during abduction of the ulna. Abduction of the ulna occurs when pronation takes place around an axis passing through the head of the radius and the second digit. This is in contrast to pronation around an axis passing through the fifth digit, in which the ulna remains(More)
The goal of this study was to determine if obesity is a risk factor for total joint arthroplasty. This was a retrospective review of 130 patients treated with either primary total hip arthroplasty or primary total knee arthroplasty during a two-year period (154 consecutive arthroplasties). The patients were placed in the nonobese or obese group. Obesity was(More)
The senior author altered his surgical technique during total hip arthroplasty from capsulectomy and capsulotomy with closure of the external rotator muscles to capsulotomy and capsulorrhaphy. One thousand patients (500 treated with each procedure) were studied retrospectively in order to determine the prevalences of dislocation after surgery with the two(More)
