2009 Compressive osseointegration of tibial implants in primary cancer reconstruction CORR Open Access

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2758992

Compressive osseointegration technology, which provides immediate, mechanically compliant endoprosthetic fixation, has been adapted for massive proximal tibial reconstructions in an attempt to avoid aseptic failure encountered with conventional stems.
Compressive osseointegration technology can thus achieve acceptable short-term endoprosthetic fixation results and may reduce the risk of aseptic loosening reported with conventional...

2010 Preoperative pain catastrophizing predicts pain outcome after knee arthroplasty CORR Open Access

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2816776

Psychologic status is associated with poor outcome after knee arthroplasty yet little is known about which specific psychologic disorders or pain-related beliefs contribute to poor outcome. To enhance the therapeutic effect of a psychologic intervention, the specific disorders or pain-related beliefs that contributed to poor outcome should be identified. We...

2010 Robotic arm-assisted UKA improves tibial component alignment CORR Open Access

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2795844

The alignment of the components of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) reportedly influences outcomes and durability. A novel robotic arm technology has been developed with the expectation that it could improve the accuracy of bone preparation in UKA. During the study period, we compared the postoperative radiographic alignment of the tibial...

2011 Total Knee Arthroplasty using Hybrid Navigation Technique

Location: http://www.josr-online.com/content/6/1/26

The use of computer navigation is becoming a well-recognized technical alternative to conventional total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, computer navigation has a substantial learning curve and the use of commercially available navigation systems increases surgical time. In addition, the potential risks associated with the navigation TKA, such as, registration errors,...

An Interesting Case of Joint Prosthesis Allergy Medscape

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/706403

A rare case of contact allergic dermatitis from metal knee joint prostheses is presented. The low incidence of allergic contact dermatitis from metal prostheses is surprising, especially given the frequency of metal allergy, particularly to nickel and cobalt, in the general population. Even patients with known metal allergy often do...

Analysis of High Cost Joint Implants in a Community Registry

Location: http://www.springerlink.com/content/q122t40900v23352/fulltext.html

Questions/purposes We evaluated registry survival of higher-cost “premium” knee and hip components compared to lower-priced standard components.
Conclusions In this time frame, premium implants did not demonstrate better survival than standard implants. Revision indications for TKA did not differ, and infection and instability remained contributors. Longer followup is necessary...

Antibiotic Cement in Total Knee Replacement Always Use It COA

Location: http://www.coa-aco.org/coa-bulletin/issue-83/antibiotic-cement-in-total-knee-replacement-s-macdonald ...

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has clearly revolutionized the management of the arthritic knee patient and has a tremendous track record of success. One of the most devastating complications following a TKA remains the development of an infection. While estimates vary, the prevalence of peri-prosthetic infection is estimated at approximately 2%...

Antibiotic Impregnated Cement Short-term Gain for Long-term Pain

Location: http://www.coa-aco.org/coa-bulletin/issue-83/antibiotic-impregnated-cement-r-leighton.html

The reason total joint arthroplasty has gained wide-spread support is due to its successful long-term outcomes. This, along with its number one position in cost effectiveness, has propelled it to take a prominent role in health care.
Anything that drives up the cost (antibiotic cement) or potentially reduces the long-term outcome...
