Systemic Mastocytosis Diagnosed Following Bone Biopsy During Total Knee Replacement

Location: http://www.ispub.com/ostia/index.php?xmlFilePath=journals/ijos/vol2n2/knee.xml

Mastocytosis is a rare, heterogeneous disorder, of normal, active mast cells. The increase in mast cells is usually localised to the skin, but occasionally occurs in other organs as a systemic disorder. We report a case where systemic mastocytosis was diagnosed following biopsy of the femur during total knee replacement.

The Use of Highly Cross-linked Polyethylene in Total Knee Arthroplasty JAAOS

Location: http://www.jaaos.org/cgi/content/full/19/3/143

Abstract - Polyethylene wear, with resultant particle-induced osteolysis, is a cause of late failure of total knee arthroplasty. The causes of both wear and osteolysis are multifactorial; still, improvements in the polyethylene liner have been investigated. Available highly cross-linked polyethylene tibial liners and patellar prostheses differ greatly in the amount...

Total Arthroplasty in Ankylosed Knees

METHODS In the present study, we evaluated the clinical course of nine patients who...

Total Knee Arthroplasty after High Tibial Osteotomy Medscape

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/708446

Previous osteotomy may compromise subsequent knee replacement, but no guidelines considering knee arthroplasty after prior osteotomy have been developed. We describe a systematic review of non-randomized studies to analyze the effect of high tibial osteotomy on total knee arthroplasty.
Conclusion: Our analysis suggests that osteotomy does not compromise subsequent knee replacement....

Location: http://www.emedicine.com/orthoped/topic631.htm

Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty has had varying degrees of acceptance since its introduction approximately 30 years ago. Frequent and early failures were cited in initial studies.
