OBJECTIVES: This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of two different external tibial cutting guides with and without a spike anchoring to the intercondylar eminentia to achieve a desired posterior tibial slope. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between January 2008 and December 2011, 120 posterior cruciate ligament protecting total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgeries of 83 patients in which two different external tibial cutting guides used were included. Fifty-nine knees were included into the spiked and 61 knees were included into the spikeless cutting guide group...

INTRODUCTION: This pilot study used magnet resonance imaging (MRI) to analyse the rotation of medial unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA) components and assessed how accurately the results could be reproduced. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Knee MRI using a special protocol to reduce metal artefact was performed in ten patients who had undergone medial UKA. Two independent investigators measured the rotation angle of femoral (zirconium) and tibial (cemented full-poly or cemented modular metal-backed) components applying different reference lines for the latter...

We have described management in tibia's intercondylar eminentia fractures in children, based on own data and review of the contemporary bibliography. The data contain 16 children from 6 to 14 years of age with all Meyers' and McKeever' fractures types. Type I and II fractures can be treated conservatively. Such factors like fracture's type and child's age must be taken under consideration for an operative treatment most often, but in children below 10 years of age, the conservative one should be considered as well...

Seventeen patients (16 children, 1 adolescent) were reviewed 31 months to 71 months after sustaining the common childhood fracture of the eminentia intercondylaris of the tibia. The aim was to assess long-term results and prognosis by clinical and radiological examination and to discover whether conservative treatment was adequate for type I and type II fractures according to Meyers and McKeever. Early improvement occurred in all patients after conservative treatment, but long-term results were not satisfactory in displaced fractures,which were treated with closed reduction and immobilization in extension...

The role and significance of acute arthroscopy have been evaluated in the treatment of knee joint injuries on the basis of findings during 59 arthroscopic operations which were conducted within two weeks after the accident. The injuries developed isolated in more than half of the cases (65%) whereas they appeared in a combination of two or more in 26% and in 9%, respectively. Injuries requiring operation were found in 91.5%, most of which were ruptures of the ACL (33 cases) and menisci (23 cases). In the case of ACL rupture, in the acute phase on sportsmen and physical workers primary arthroscopically assisted transligamental replacement was performed with patellar graft while in the case of proximal rupture of the ACL reinsertion and augmentation were carried out with semitendinosus tendon...

56 cases of proximal intraarticular tibia fractures over a 4-year period are reviewed. In every case the patients described a preceding valgus-compression trauma of their knee. Clinically we always found a hemarthrosis combined with a tenderness on pressure at the fractured condyle. Roentgenograms should be performed in 4 projections, eventually followed by conventional tomograms or computed tomography. Frequency of the several fracture types is demonstrated following the classification of the AO working group for osteosynthesis...
