NexGen Gender Fixed Bearing Knee Versus NexGen Legacy Knee Posterior Stabilized (LPS) - Flex Fixed Bearing Knee: A Study Comparing Two Different Knee Prostheses
The purpose of this trial is to study potential differences between two prostheses, including: "feel of prosthesis" (i.e., how natural does the prosthesis feel), range of motion (ROM), pain perception for each prosthesis, satisfaction, patella tracking and quantification of the removed bone anterior on the femur (weight).
The present study compares the Gender prosthesis against the LPS-flex in a bilateral study, where patients are given two different prostheses: Gender on one side and LPS-flex on the other side. Patients are blinded to which prosthesis is selected for which side. The potential advantages of the Gender prosthesis include: less post-op pain due to better sizing (less overhang), less post-op patellofemoral pain and less compromised extensor mechanism and better patella tracking (due to less overstuffing of the patellofemoral joint).
The study is prospective, randomized, comparative and blinded. 24 female patients scheduled for simultaneous bilateral total knee arthroplasty are included (48 knees).
Power calculations cannot be performed as to how many patients are needed since no previous studies have been conducted.
All patients are included and operated by consultant Henrik Husted.
Patients are randomized to which side is operated with which prosthesis (LPS-flex or Gender); the operations are performed using standard instrumentation and standard approaches.
At the operation the weight of the cut bone from the anterior femur is noted for each side. Before discharge radiographs including skyline views are performed to evaluate patella tracking (and are repeated at the final out-patient check 1 year post-op).
Gait analyses are performed before operation and 1 year post-op. All other procedures are standard procedures already implemented in the department.
Patients follow an accelerated track (ANORAK, 1,2) with an intended LOS of 4 days for bilaterally operated knee-arthroplasties, all patients are discharged directly to their homes.

Replacement for a knee joint.
Tooth Preparation, Prosthodontic
The selected form given to a natural tooth when it is reduced by instrumentation to receive a prosthesis (e.g., artificial crown or a retainer for a fixed or removable prosthesis). The selection of the form is guided by clinical circumstances and physical properties of the materials that make up the prosthesis. (Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p239)
The physical state of supporting an applied load. This often refers to the weight-bearing bones or joints that support the body's weight, especially those in the spine, hip, knee, and foot.
A person's concept of self as being male and masculine or female and feminine, or ambivalent, based in part on physical characteristics, parental responses, and psychological and social pressures. It is the internal experience of gender role.
Natural teeth or teeth roots used as anchorage for a fixed or removable denture or other prosthesis (such as an implant) serving the same purpose.
The purpose of this study is to test for significant differences in functional outcomes, specifically pre-operative ROM and post-operative ROM obtained by using a NexGen CR versus a NexGen...
A randomized blinded study is conducted comparing 2 different knee prostheses. Range of motion (ROM), pain, feel of prosthesis, satisfaction and ability to do daily activities are register...
The purpose of this prospective, randomized study was to compare pain, functional outcome and ranges of motion of the knees in patients receiving either a standard posterior cruciate-retai...
The purpose of this prospective, randomized study was to compare functional outcome, radiographic results, range of motion, patients satisfaction, and fit of the femoral component in patie...
The results of this study will help in the development of a new type of nasal strip for management of nasal congestion and snoring.
PURPOSE: We evaluated 3- to 6-year clinical and radiological follow-up results after NexGen((R)) LPS-flex total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS: A retrospective evaluation was undertaken of 218 knees...
PURPOSE: Controversy still exists whether coronal malalignment would influence the long-term survival of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The hypothesis was that an improved design of the articular surf...
Excessive wear in total knee arthroplasty is detected by measuring the minimum joint space width (mJSW) in anterioposterior radiographs. The accuracy of conventional measurement methods is limited and...
BACKGROUND: The tibial post in posterior-stabilized total knees is a potential source of polyethylene wear debris, but the relationship between the shape and location of the tibial post in relation to...
PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the in vivo knee kinematics to assess the available functional motion of the characteristic mobile-bearing prosthesis design and to examine whether...
