BACKGROUND: Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is an alternative to total knee arthroplasty in isolated medial osteoarthritis (OA). However, despite satisfactory reports on the clinical performance, UKA revision rates are still concerning. This retrospective study reports on the long-term survivorship, functional outcomes, and reasons for revision in fixed-bearing UKA implant. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2013, 460 consecutive patients were treated with medial UKA in one center using a fixed-bearing UKA system...

BACKGROUND: Centrifugation is used to remove the color interference by erythrocytes in blood-synovial fluid samples before leukocyte esterase (LE) strip testing. However, the impact of centrifugation requires further study. METHODS: From April 2016 to October 2017, 133 (53 infected and 80 noninfected) patients were included in this study. One drop of synovial fluid was applied to LE strips before and after centrifugation in 110 cases. The other 23 cases could not be read without centrifugation due to the color disturbance caused by blood contamination...

BACKGROUND: Tibial implant's positioning in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) requires a compromise between implant's rotation and bone coverage. We hypothesized that morphometric tibial trays (MTTs) would improve implant positioning and clinical outcomes as compared with symmetrical tibial trays. METHODS: Thirty-three patients were included prospectively according to the following criteria: age from 18 to 85 years, body mass index <35 kg/m2 , and posterostabilized cemented TKA performed for primary arthritis...

BACKGROUND: The Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement bundle was created to decrease total knee arthroplasty (TKA) cost. To help accomplish this, there is a focus on reducing TKA readmissions. However, there is a lack of national representative sample of all-payer hospital admissions to direct strategy, identify risk factors for readmission, and understand actual readmission cost. METHODS: We used the Nationwide Readmission Database to examine national readmission rates, predictors of readmission, and associated readmission costs for elective TKA procedures...

BACKGROUND: Suboptimal total knee arthroplasty (TKA) position of both femoral and tibial components is thought to be linked with poor clinical outcomes, polyethylene wear and the "unexplained" painful knee arthroplasty. The aim of this study was to better understand the effect of implant orientation on knee implant performance. METHODS: We analyzed 30 retrieved contemporary TKA implants. Implant positioning measurements in the coronal plane were made prior to revision using a diagnostic algorithm, based on 3D computed tomography (CT) images...

BACKGROUND: There is increasing concern regarding the occurrence of adverse local tissue reactions (ALTRs) in metal-on-polyethylene (MoP) total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients due to mechanically assisted crevice corrosion at the head-neck modular taper junction. The utility of metal ion levels in evaluating MoP patients with head-neck taper has not been fully characterized. This study aimed to investigate the sensitivity and specificity of serum metal ions as a predictor of ALTR in MoP THA patients...
