Background: Uni-knee arthroplasty (UKA) has shown better knee kinematics and motion that may better suit the activities of daily living in Eastern countries. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional outcomes of UKA for medial compartment knee arthropathy in Asian patients. Methods: The study cohort consisted of 48 patients with 51 UK A knees. Only one type of prosthesis was used and all components were cemented. Postoperative management included ambulation with weight bearing…

Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty Provides Higher Activity and Durability Than Valgus-Producing Proximal Tibial Osteotomy at 5 to 7 Years
In this comparative cohort study of young patients with isolated unicompartmental arthritis, those treated with UKA reached a higher level of activity early after surgery and it persisted at mid-term follow-up.
Native rotational knee kinematics is restored after lateral UKA but not after medial UKA
The rotational kinematics of the native knee was not restored after medial UKA but was preserved after lateral UKA, and the geometry of the medial tibial articular surface is a determinant of the ability to restore the rotationalKinematic of thenative knee.
The Knee Survivorship and patient satisfaction of robotic-assisted medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty at a minimum two-year follow-up
In this multicenter study, robotic-assisted UKA was found to have high survivorship and satisfaction rate at short-term follow-up and Prospective comparison studies with longer follow- up are necessary in order to compare surviv sponsorship and satisfaction rates of robotic assisted UKA to conventional UKA and total knee arthroplasty.
Step negotiation biomechanics during truck cab egress and the effects of anthropometrics and cab design on driver fall biomechanics etiology
Three-dimensional reconstruction of truck driver egress motions, detailed analysis of spatiotemporal parameters and driver behaviors, as well as a description of access system egress cycles and methods of analyses, suggest driver biomechanics largely depends on their interaction with the cab, tactics, foot behaviors, and the quality of contact with the steps.
Microneedle Patches with O2 Propellant for Deeply and Fast Delivering Photosensitizers: Towards Improved Photodynamic Therapy.
This study demonstrates a facile yet effective route of MN delivery of PSs for improved PDT in hypoxic tumor treatment and shows that SPC in the MNs can react with surrounding fluid to generate gaseous oxygen bubbles, forming vigorous fluid flows and thus greatly enhancing PS of chlorin e6 (Ce6) penetration in both hydrogel models and skin tissues.
Buried treasure: Unlocking the secrets of medicinal mushrooms
The weird and wonderful world of the mushroom is explored, and how Western medicine still has a lot to learn from Eastern practices dating back thousands of years is examined.
Outcomes of robotic-arm-assisted medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty: minimum 3-year follow-up
Robotic-arm-assisted UKA, through accurate implant positioning, significantly improves range of motion and coronal plane alignment, in appropriately selected patients, along with excellent survival of implants and minimal to none surgery-related morbidity.


Long-term clinical results of the Oxford medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty
The Oxford meniscal bearing arthroplasty offers long-term pain relief with good knee function, with a high complication rate, with some of the failures encountered indicating that the surgical technique is very demanding.
[Unicondylar knee arthroplasty in medial unicompartmental osteoarthritis: technical faults and difficulties].
Unicondylar knee arthroplasty is a surgical treatment method with a long-term recovery and high frequency of technical faults and a good alternative surgical technique for appropriately selected patients with medial unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis.
Short-term results of the Oxford phase 3 unicompartmental knee arthroplasty for medial arthritis.
The findings show that, with proper patient selection and strict adherence to the surgical technique, short-term results of the Oxford phase 3 unicompartmental knee prosthesis are excellent or good in the treatment of medial compartment osteoarthritis.
The Oxford medial unicompartmental arthroplasty: a ten-year survival study.
The ten-year survival rate is the best of those reported for unicompartmental arthroplasty and not significantly different from the best rates for total knee replacement.
Unicompartmental or total knee replacement? Five-year results of a prospective, randomised trial of 102 osteoarthritic knees with unicompartmental arthritis.
It is shown that UKR gives better results than TKR and that this superiority is maintained for at least five years.
A Comparison of Tricompartmental and Unicompartmental Arthroplasty for the Treatment of Gonarthrosis
In appropriately selected patients unicompartmentsal arthroplasty was associated with better range of motion and ambulatory function than patients being treated with tricompartmental knee replacement and there were no statistically significant differences in aseptic loosening.
