BACKGROUND Fresh osteochondral allograft transplantation is an increasingly common treatment option for chondral and osteochondral lesions in the knee, but the long-term outcome is unknown. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We determined (1) pain and function, (2) frequency and types of reoperations, (3) survivorship at a median of 13.5 years, and (4) predictors of(More)
Median 14-year follow-up (mean 11.8 years) of a cemented primary posterior cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty (TKA) utilizing the Press-Fit Condylar (PFC) Sigma design was evaluated in 77 patients (79 TKA). Follow-up assessment included implant survivorship, x-rays, Knee Society rating system, and clinical evaluation. Radiographic analysis(More)
Metal-on-metal (MoM) bearings for total hip arthroplasty (THA) have come under scrutiny with reports of high failure rates. Clinical outcome studies with several commercially available MoM THA bearings remain unreported. We evaluated 78 consecutive MoM THAs from a single manufacturer in 68 patients. Sixty-six received cobalt-chrome (CoCr) monoblock and 12(More)
This study compares the incidence of venous thromboembolic event (VTE) in 55 patients (110 knees) undergoing simultaneous bilateral TKA with 287 patients (287 knees) undergoing unilateral TKA using a mobile compression device as monotherapy prophylaxis in both groups. All patients were clinically evaluated 3months after surgery with symptomatic confirmed(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the histological patterns of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) degeneration during aging and in relation to changes in articular cartilage and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) across the entire adult age spectrum. METHODS Human knee joints (n=120 from 65 donors) were processed within 72 h of postmortem. Articular cartilage surfaces(More)
INTRODUCTION The technical objective of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is to restore normal mechanical parameters to the knee. Patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) was developed to streamline the operative process and improve accuracy. PSI produces individualized cutting guides based on three-dimensional models of the patient's anatomy acquired from(More)
In patient-specifically instrumented (PSI) total knee arthroplasty, the correlation between the pre-operative surgical plan, accuracy of the cutting block, and intra-operative resection size is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability to accurately execute the PSI surgical plan and to add to the merging information with respect to this(More)
BACKGROUND Venous thromboembolism (VTE) comprises pulmonary embolism and deep vein thrombosis and is a complication of particular concern in lower limb arthroplasty. In recent years, aspirin has emerged as a potential alternative thromboprophylactic agent, particularly after its acceptance as a recommended agent by the American College of Chest Physicians.(More)
BACKGROUND Injuries to the glenoid labrum frequently require repair with anchors. Placing anchor devices arthroscopically can be challenging, and anchor malpositioning can complicate surgical outcomes. PURPOSE To determine the safe insertion range and optimal insertion angle of glenoid labral anchors at various positions on the glenoid rim and to(More)
Squeaking is a well-recognized complication for hard-on-hard bearings. The nature of squeaking is not yet completely understood however it is considered a multifactorial phenomenon. Patient, implant, and surgical factors play a role in squeaking. It is believed that mechanisms damaging the fluid film lubrication in which these bearings function optimally(More)
