Comparison of In Vivo Alignment With TruMatchâ„¢ Personalized Solutions Compared to Conventional Instrumentation in Total Knee Replacement (TKA)
This investigation is intended to provide clinical information about alignment using TruMatchâ„¢ and to compare the results to a conventional total knee replacement. TruMatchâ„¢ will be compared to a historical control study, which compares alignment results of computer aided surgery (CAS) and conventional surgical techniques.
The purpose of this investigation is to determine whether TruMatchâ„¢ alignment is non-inferior to alignment achieved with conventional instrumentation. This investigation will compare long leg alignment in total knee replacement achieved by the two types of procedures. Radiographic analysis will be performed by the same IRR as the historical control study.
The study is designed as a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, clinical investigation to determine whether TruMatchâ„¢ alignment is non-inferior to alignment achieved in a recently completed study (historical control) with conventional instrumentation.
Each enrolled Subject will undergo a total knee replacement using the TruMatchâ„¢ surgical technique. This investigation will require the Subject to be followed once postoperatively to collect radiographs. Follow-up will occur typically 2 to 12 weeks after surgery and when the Subject can achieve full leg extension (=/-5 degrees) and can tolerate weight-bearing.

Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage.

Viscoelastic solutions that are injected into JOINTS in order to alleviate symptoms of joint-related disorders such as OSTEOARTHRITIS.
Sterile solutions, essentially free from foreign particles and suitably compounded and dispensed, for instillation into the eye. It does not include solutions for cleaning eyeglasses or CONTACT LENS SOLUTIONS. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

The purpose of this research study is to investigate the safety and tolerability of OP-1 when it is injected into the knee joint of patients who have osteoarthritis on the knee.
This trial will assess the ability of shoe inserts to relieve pain and disability in people with knee osteoarthritis (OA) in the inner (medial) aspect of the knee.
Patients with unilateral or bilateral osteoarthritis of the knee participated in a Phase IV clinical trial to assess the efficacy of Lidoderm compared with celecoxib 200mg in treating pain...
Unloading valgus knee braces may be more effective than knee sleeves, to improve pain and disability for medial knee osteoarthritis, but have more adverse effects. A lateral-wedge insole could reduce...
We present the first ever reported case of bilateral total knee replacements in a congenital amputee with bilateral fibular deficiency. A 60year old woman with bilateral fibular hemimelia presented wi...
Osteoarthritis is a disease that progresses over time and culminates in the destruction of articular cartilage and joints. Thus, with an increasing elderly population the treatment of knee osteoarthri...
OBJECTIVE:: To examine the association of concurrent low back pain (LBP), and other musculoskeletal pain comorbidity, with knee pain severity in symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS:: 1389 in...
