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 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)
Postoperative leg length inequality after total hip arthroplasty frequently leads to medical liability issues because no standard exists regarding the acceptable disparity. Modular stems allow control of offset, independent sizing of the distal femoral anatomy, as well as proximal medullary sizing. The authors compared the restoration of leg length in two(More)
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)
Femoral rollback after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is necessary for flexion beyond 90-100 degrees. Femoral rollback in posterior cruciate substituting TKA occurs as a result of the interaction between the femoral cam and tibial post. The geometric design of the cam post mechanism determines the kinematics of rollback. The purpose of this study is to(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)
BACKGROUND One of the main goals in total hip replacement is to preserve the integrity of the hip kinematics, by well positioning the cup and to make sure its initial stability is congruent and attained. Achieving the latter is not trivial. METHODS A finite element model of the cup-bone interface simulating a realistic insertion and analysis of different(More)
Interest in mobile-bearing knee prostheses is increasing in the US market. We studied results at 2 to 5 years with a mobile-bearing system that includes a cobalt-chrome tibial tray and femoral component with a polyethylene cruciate-retaining tibial component insert that allows rotation around a central axis and can be used with cruciate-retaining or(More)
