Construction of 3D geometric surface models of human knee joint is always a challenge in biomedical engineering. This study introduced an improved statistical shape model (SSM) method that only uses 2D images of a joint to predict the 3D joint surface model. The SSM was constructed using 40 distal femur models of human knees. In this paper, a series(More)
Fluoroscopic image technique, using either a single image or dual images, has been widely applied to measure in vivo human knee joint kinematics. However, few studies have compared the advantages of using single and dual fluoroscopic images. Furthermore, due to the size limitation of the image intensifiers, it is possible that only a portion of the knee(More)
BACKGROUND Fixed-bearing posterior-stabilized (PS) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has been used in Asian countries for several years, but few studies have investigated differences in the kinematic properties of the patellar tendon after standard PS TKA as compared to high-flex PS TKA. PURPOSE To quantify the in vitro three-dimensional (3D) kinematics of(More)
Fluoroscopic imaging, using single plane or dual plane images, has grown in popularity to measure dynamic in vivo human shoulder joint kinematics. However, no study has quantified the difference in spatial positional accuracy between single and dual plane image-model registration applied to the shoulder joint. In this paper, an automatic 2D-3D image-model(More)
The revision of total hip arthroplasty (THA) is becoming an increasingly common procedure around the world. The extended trochanteric osteotomy (ETO) has proved to be an effective way in revision of THA. Four generations of trochanteric osteotomy fixation systems have been developed, all of which has its own clinical application. However, few studies on the(More)
BACKGROUND The wire fixation and the cable grip fixation have been developed for the extended trochanteric osteotomy (ETO) in the revision of total hip arthroplasty (THA). Many studies reported the postoperative performance of the patients, but with little quantitative biomechanical comparison of the two fixation systems. METHODS An in-vitro testing(More)
BACKGROUND Our study aimed to investigate the clinicopathological feature and prognostic role of miR-509-3-5P in gastric cancer, to determine the invasive and metastatic role of miR-509-3-5P in vitro and in vivo and to explore the molecular mechanism between miR-509-3-5P and PODXL. RESULTS Strikingly lower miR-509-3-5P expression was detected in gastric(More)
Surgical navigation system has been widely used by surgeons to improve alignment accuracy during Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA). In this article, we present an image-free surgical navigation system for TKA with a more interactive and robust in-house developed Graphical User Interface (GUI). The navigation system has a more intuitive view and can trace(More)
