AIM: This study aimed to quantify the inter- and intrarater clinician agreement on joint motion patterns in children with spastic cerebral palsy (CP), which were recently specified by a Delphi consensus study. It also examined whether experience with three-dimensional gait analysis (3DGA) is a prerequisite for using the patterns. METHOD: The experimental group consisted of 82 patients with CP (57 males, 25 females; uni-/bilateral CP [n=27/55]; Gross Motor Function Classification System levels I to III; mean age 9y 5mo [range 4y-18y])...

INTRODUCTION: Uni-compartmental knee arthritis may be treated with several surgical options including uni-compartmental knee arthroplasty, total knee arthroplasty and high tibial osteotomy. Non-union is a well-established and common complication that may arise from the latter option and few reports have shown successful treatment of persistent non-union of high tibial osteotomy. CASE PRESENTATION: We present a case of persistent non-union after high tibial osteotomy treated with autologous iliac crest bone grafting and revision plating...

AIM: To determine whether three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction from conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is able to accurately detect a meniscal tear, and define the configuration. METHODS: Thirty-three patients' 3T MRI scan data were collected and sagittal uni-planar 3D reconstructions performed from the preoperative MRI. There were 24 meniscal tears in 24 patients, and nine controls. All patients had arthroscopic corroboration of MRI findings. Two independent observers prospectively reported on all 33 reconstructions...

INTRODUCTION: Viscosupplementation can improve function in haemophilia patients. Viscosupplementation results can be improved by prior joint lavage and triamcinolone administration. AIM: To objectively assess whether viscosupplementation and associated triamcinolone use in patients with severe haemophilic arthropathy following joint lavage improves force and balance and reduces bleeding events. METHODS: Fourteen patients with haemophilic knee arthritis with and without the involvement of other joints underwent joint lavage and subsequent injections of Hylan G-F20 and triamcinolone into all affected joints...

BACKGROUND: After open wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO), the proximal fragment resembles the anatomy of the proximal tibia that is aligned in the anterior-posterior direction and the distal fragment resembles the anatomy of the mid shaft that is aligned in the proximal-distal direction. In addition, the medial portion of the proximal fragment becomes aligned medially and the medial portion of the distal fragment, laterally, depending on the magnitude of the posterior opening gap. Therefore, there would be a mismatch between the post-correction bony surface and the previous pre-contoured plate geometry...

The aims of the study were to (i) determine the prevalence and course of self-reported knee instability at 2-year follow-up and (ii) identify factors predictive of retention of self-reported knee instability among patients with established knee osteoarthritis (OA). Among 201 patients from the Amsterdam Osteoarthritis (AMS-OA) cohort, demographic characteristics, self-reported knee instability, muscle strength, proprioception, pain, and physical function were assessed at baseline and at 2 years. Exercise over the past 2 years was assessed by evaluating the medical files...

BACKGROUND: Despite basic characterization of the loading factors that strain the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the interrelationship(s) and additive nature of these loads that occur during noncontact ACL injuries remain incompletely characterized. HYPOTHESIS: In the presence of an impulsive axial compression, simulating vertical ground-reaction force during landing (1) both knee abduction and internal tibial rotation moments would result in increased peak ACL strain, and (2) a combined multiplanar loading condition, including both knee abduction and internal tibial rotation moments, would increase the peak ACL strain to levels greater than those under uniplanar loading modes alone...

INTRODUCTION: In the recent years modular partial knee prosthesis with the opportunity to combine unicompartmental tibiofemoral (UKA) and patellofemoral prosthesis (PFJ) were introduced to the clinics. To date, little is known about the biomechanics of these bi-cruciate retaining prosthetic designs. Aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of a PFJ in bicompartmental arthroplasty (UKA + PFJ) on patella tracking and retropatella pressure distribution. METHODS: A dynamic in vitro knee kinemator simulating an isokinetic extension cycle of the knee was used on eight knee specimen...

The beneficial effects of dexmedetomidine (DEX) have not been extensively investigated in elderly patients receiving spinal anesthesia. This study evaluated the effects of intravenous DEX infusion on stress and hemodynamic response, as well as on postoperative analgesia in elderly patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We randomly allocated 45 adult patients to 3 patient groups (n=15 each): uni-saline group patients underwent unilateral TKA with saline administration, uni-DEX group patients underwent unilateral TKA with DEX administration, and bilateral-DEX group patients underwent bilateral TKA with DEX administration...

Intra-osseous pin sites used in Computer Navigated knee Arthroplasty are known to cause complications including infection, neurovascular injury, thermal necrosis and peri-prosthetic fracture. Many studies have looked at ways of reducing these risks to improve results in computer-navigated surgery. We present our complication rates and techniques used to reduce complications in a retrospective study of 321 patients performed by a single surgeon in between 2009 and 2013. One patient was identified with a superficial pin site infection...

PURPOSE: Revision of infected total knee replacements (TKR) is usually delayed for a period in which the joint space is filled with an antibiotic-loaded acrylic spacer. In contrast, one-stage re-implantation supposes immediate re-implantation. Formal comparisons between the two methods are scarce. A retrospective multi-centre study was conducted to investigate the effects of surgery type (one-stage vs. two-stage) on cure rates. It was hypothesised that this parameter would not influence the results...

High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is an accepted treatment option for correcting deformities and reducing pain in the treatment of uni-compartment osteoarthritis of the knee. The principle is to redistribute the weight-bearing load. Medial open wedge HTO (MOWHTO) has gained popularity over lateral closed wedge osteotomy due to its decreased incidence of complications. MOWHTO surgical techniques have many variations in fixation techniques and in the use of bone grafts or bone substitute augmentation. In spite of the existing guidelines, there are no clear indications of grafting at the osteotomy site...

BACKGROUND: With i ncrease in elderly population, osteoarthritis has become major concern nowadays. Knee joint is most commonly affected joint. A number of methods have been developed in the last few years which help in treating the osteoarthritis knee, which includes non pharmacological, pharmacological and surgical methods. Among the most promising techniques with renewed interest for osteoarthritis knee with deformity is the use of high tibial osteotomy. Uni-compartmental osteoarthritis knee with deformity especially in relatively younger age group (less than 60 years) constitutes the main indication...

Partial knee arthroplasty (PKA), either medial or lateral unicompartmental knee artroplasty (UKA) or patellofemoral arthroplasty (PFA) are a good option in suitable patients and have the advantages of reduced operative trauma, preservation of both cruciate ligaments and bone stock, and restoration of normal kinematics within the knee joint. However, questions remain concerning long-term survival. The goal of this review article was to present the long-term results of medial and lateral UKA, PFA and combined compartmental arthroplasty for multicompartmental disease...

The anatomy and orientation of the condyles and the trochlea are not standard, but related to morphotype, gender and race. Consequently, the extreme variability in their dimension, and in the distance and angle between the axis of the condyles and of the trochlea, often necessitates a "custom-made" replacement. This may be achieved through the use of small implants. Bicompartmental osteoarthritis with intact ligaments should be addressed with bi-unicompartmental (bi-UKR) or UKR plus patellofemoral replacement (PFR)...

INTRODUCTION: During movement tasks, patients with medial compartment knee osteoarthritis use compensatory strategies to minimise the joint load of the affected leg. Movement strategies of the knees and trunk have been investigated, but less is known about movement strategies of the pelvis during advancing functional tasks, and how these strategies are associated with leg extension power. The aim of the study was to investigate pelvic movement strategies and leg extension power in patients with end-stage medial compartment knee osteoarthritis compared with controls...
