CONTEXT: Altered lower extremity muscle activity has been suggested to be associated with lower extremity kinematics in individuals with patellofemoral pain (PFP). However, few studies examined these relationships and the results are inconsistent. OBJECTIVES: To compare the lower extremity muscle activity, kinematics, pain level, and reach distance during the anterior reach of the Star Excursion Balance Test (SEBT) between participants with PFP and healthy individuals (CON)...

This study investigated whether women with patellofemoral pain (PFP) present kinematic alterations in proximal, local, and distal factors simultaneously, and determined the association between the number of kinematic alterations, pain level, and functional status. A three-dimensional motion analysis system was used to analyze the peak hip adduction, peak knee flexion, and peak rearfoot eversion, addressing the proximal, local, and distal factors, respectively, in fifty women. Functional status and pain level were assessed using the anterior knee pain scale (AKPS) and a visual analogic scale...

INTRODUCTION: Optimal positioning of the patellar component is crucial for the success of a total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Usually, the patellar component is placed empirically over the presumed centre of the patellar cut. Medialization of the prosthetic patella has been recommended; however, no evidence-based guidelines have been reported. MATERIAL AND METHOD: This anatomical study aims to quantify a pre-defined optimal location for positioning of the patellar component with regard to the centre of the patellar cut...

Bipartite patella (BP) is uncommon and is usually an incidental finding. Painful BP occurs rarely and is usually associated with post-traumatic anterior knee pain. When nonoperative treatment fails, fragment resection is indicated. A systematic review shows a potentially increased risk of complications with open surgery. The purpose of this Technical Note is to demonstrate a simple arthroscopic technique for treating painful BP through resection of the bone fragment.

Pain, swelling, and inflammation of the knee joint and its surrounding soft-tissue structures are common during the postoperative period after arthroscopic knee debridement and anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. These challenges can make patient recovery difficult immediately after surgery. Several options exist, however, to help patients overcome these challenges. Cryotherapy has been noted to decrease pain, swelling, and inflammation. However, while a number of studies exist characterizing the use of cryotherapy after knee surgery, no definitive cryotherapy devices and modalities have been identified...

A relevant aspect in osteoarthritic pain is neural sensitization. This phenomenon involves augmented responsiveness to painful stimulation and may entail a clinically worse prognosis. We used functional MRI (fMRI) to study pain sensitization in patients with knee osteoarthritis. Sixty patients were recruited and pain sensitization was clinically defined on the basis of regional spreading of pain (spreading sensitization) and increased pain response to repeated stimulation (temporal summation). fMRI testing involved assessing brain responses to both pressure and heat stimulation...

PURPOSE: Increased retropatellar pressure and altered kinematics are associated with anterior knee pain and unsatisfied patients after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Since malposition of the implant is believed to contribute to postoperative pain, we performed this in vitro study to evaluate the influence of mediolateral femoral component position on retropatellar pressure as well as tibio-femoral and patella kinematics. METHODS: For the test, a fixed-bearing TKA was implanted in eight fresh frozen cadaver specimens...

Bipartite patella usually is an asymptomatic anatomical variant. However, in some adolescent athletes, it causes anterior knee pain, resulting in decreased participation and performance. We report the case of a high-level adolescent ice hockey player who underwent successful arthroscopic excision with preservation of the lateral retinaculum of a symptomatic bipartite patella after failed nonoperative treatment. The patient returned to play by 6 weeks, and 31-month subjective follow-up scores showed high satisfaction and good clinical outcomes...

OBJECTIVE: To identify the shared neuroimaging signature of gait slowing and cognitive impairment. METHODS: We assessed a cohort of older adults (n = 175, mean age 73 years, 57% female, 65% white) with repeated measures of gait speed over 14 years, MRI for gray matter volume (GMV) at year 10 or 11, and adjudicated cognitive status at year 14. Gait slowing was calculated by bayesian slopes corrected for intercepts, with higher values indicating faster decline. GMV was normalized to intracranial volume, with lower values indicating greater atrophy for 10 regions of interest (hippocampus, anterior and posterior cingulate, primary and supplementary motor cortices, posterior parietal lobe, middle frontal lobe, caudate, putamen, pallidum)...

INTRODUCTION: Despite recent evolution in the operating techniques and surgical implants, debate continues around the choice of implant for management of distal femur fractures. High rates of complications and union difficulties continues to make them a momentous therapeutic challenge. AIM: To compare the outcome of locked compressive plating versus retrograde nailing in the management of extra articular supracondylar femur fractures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this randomized prospective study, 42 patients with extra-articular distal femur fractures were segregated into two groups based on internal fixation with distal femoral locking plate (n=22) and retrograde nail (n=20)...

CONTEXT:   Lateral subchondral bone bruises (BBs) occur frequently with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. These BBs are associated with pain during weight bearing, leading individuals to increase medial tibiofemoral loading to alleviate pain laterally. Increased medial tibiofemoral loading may precipitate the development or progression of posttraumatic osteoarthritis; however, no in vivo biomechanical data exist to confirm that lateral BBs increase medial tibiofemoral loading as measured by the external knee-adduction moment (KAM)...

PURPOSE: As patellar tracking and loading is influenced by tibial tuberosity and trochlear groove (TT-TG) distance, patellar height, thickness and tilt as well as TKA component position, it was our hypothesis that these parameters significantly correlate with patellar BTU intensity and localization in SPECT/CT. The purpose of the study was to investigate whether TKA component position as well as the height, thickness and tilt of the unresurfaced patella influences the intensity and the distribution pattern of BTU in SPECT/CT...
