Do spacer blocks accurately estimate deformity correction and gap balance in total knee arthroplasty? A prospective study with computer navigation. Spacer blocks are used commonly in knee arthroplasty to estimate gaps and ligament balance. Their use continues along with modern technology despite dearth of literature regarding their accuracy and reliability. This prospective study aims to
Subvastus Exposure Compared to Parapatellar Approach in Navigated Sequential Bilateral Total Knee Arthroplasty (SBTKA): A Prospective Randomized Study. Subvastus approach preserves the quadriceps mechanism and may lead to improved early functional outcomes as compared with a parapatellar approach in primary knee arthroplasty. We performed a prospective randomized study to test the hypothesis if subvastus approach
Total knee arthroplasty in a case of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis; challenges in ligament balancing and deformity correction. Abstract INTRODUCTION: Diffuse skeletal idiopathic hyperostosis is a non-inflammatory systemic skeletal condition in which there is ossification of ligaments, tendons, and joint capsule. Although the radiological changes and clinical manifestation of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) in
Computer navigation has no beneficial effect on blood loss and transfusion in sequential bilateral total knee Arthroplasty. Abstract BACKGROUND: Bilateral total knee arthroplasty is associated with significant blood loss. Postoperative anaemia retards patients recovery, and blood transfusion increases the risk for major complications including infection. While strategies like hypotensive anaesthesia, tranexamic acid, bone
Safety and Efficacy of 6.2 mm Patellar Button in Resurfacing Less than 20 mm Thin Patella: A Matched Pair Analysis. PURPOSE: Restoring the native patellar thickness after patellar resurfacing provides optimal function of the knee after arthroplasty and minimises complications related to the patellofemoral articulation. The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness
Knee Surgery & Related Research Effect of Closed Suction Drain on Blood Loss andTransfusion Rates in Simultaneous Bilateral Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Prospective Randomized Study Purpose: Simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is associated with excessive blood loss and morbidity arising from postoperative reduction in hemoglobin (Hb). The purpose of this prospective randomized study was
The effect of patellar replacement technique on patellofemoral complications and anterior knee pain. Routine patella replacement with total knee arthroplasty has not been universally adopted because of associated patellofemoral complications such as anterior knee pain (AKP). In the proposed technique, the articular surface of the lateral facet of the patella is excised to the
Severe knee arthritis can result in complex coronal and sagittal angular deformities. Windswept deformity is used to describe a varus deformity and contralateral valgus deformity. We recognized a new sagittal pattern at the time of computer-assisted surgery (CAS) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in which one knee has a fixed flexion deformity (FFD), while the contralateral knee has a hyperextension deformity.
