BACKGROUND: Osteotomy is a rational approach to slowing knee osteoarthritis progression by modifying loads, thereby avoiding joint replacement in younger individuals. Varus femoral osteotomy is recommended only in patients with more than 10° of valgus. The objective here was to assess outcomes of tibialvarus osteotomy in patients with lateral compartment tibio-femoral osteoarthritis and less than 10° of valgus. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A single-centre retrospective study was conducted in 19 consecutive patients managed by high tibialvarus osteotomy between January 2005 and May 2012...

Technological developments in the last decade have enabled the integration of sensors and actuators into wearable devices for gait interventions to slow the progression of knee osteoarthritis. Wearable haptic gait retraining is one area which has seen promising results for informing modifications of gait parameters for reducing knee adduction moments (KAM) during walking. Two gait parameters which can be easily adjusted to influence KAM include foot progression angle (FPA) and step width (SW). The purpose of this study was to: (1) determine whether a custom haptic ankle bracelet using binary vibrotactile and tactile apparent movement feedback could retrain ten healthy subjects to walk with a modified FPA and SW within a short training session with 80% accuracy; and (2) whether there was a difference between the number of steps required to complete the retraining task based on the two feedback schemes being tested...

Ankle osteoarthritis (OA) compromises ankle joint stability in regards to static balance. Unilateral and bilateral osteoarthritis patients often exhibit different limb-loading patterns during static balance tasks. Symmetrical loading has been posited to improve balance performance. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to quantify balance performance in both ankle osteoarthritis patient groups. Twenty-two unilateral and twenty-one bilateral ankle osteoarthritis patients performed three 10-s quiet standing trials with their feet together...

Laterally wedged insoles have been shown to be effective for the reduction of the knee adduction moment and other biomechanical variables that are associated with the pathogenesis of knee osteoarthritis. However, inconclusive results such as adverse effects in individual subjects or even no group-wise wedge effects have been presented in different studies and it has been suggested to identify variables that potentially confound the wedge effect. The main objective of this study was the investigation of interaction effects of lateral wedges with walking speed, as different self-selected speeds have mainly been used in previous studies...

Biofeedback assisted rehabilitation and intervention technologies have the potential to modify clinically relevant biomechanics. Gait retraining has been used to reduce the knee adduction moment, a surrogate of medial tibiofemoral joint loading often used in knee osteoarthritis research. In this study we present an electromyogram-driven neuromusculoskeletal model of the lower-limb to estimate, in real-time, the tibiofemoral joint loads. The model included 34 musculotendon units spanning the hip, knee, and ankle joints...

The primary objective was to examine mechanisms behind previously observed changes in the knee adduction moment (KAM) with rocker-soled shoes, in participants sub-grouped according to whether they experienced an immediate decrease, or increase, in peak KAM. In subgroups where frontal plane knee ground reaction force (GRF) lever-arm emerged as a significant predictor, a secondary aim was to examine biomechanical factors that contributed to change in this parameter. Thirty individuals with symptomatic, radiographic knee osteoarthritis (OA) underwent 3D gait analysis in unstable rocker-soled shoes and non-rocker-soled shoes...

PURPOSE: Giantcell tumor of tendon sheath(GCTTS)formelyknowned as pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a benign, locally aggressive, proliferative disorder of the synovium involving a joint, bursa, or tendon sheath. Treatment ofGCTTSinvolves early surgical resection to limit articular destruction and the risk of recurrence. Synovectomy remains the treatment of choice forGCTTSbut without clear consensus to make an open or arthroscopic synovectomy andno certainty on the responsibility of surgery in the evolution towards the degenerative osteoarthritis...
