Optetrak Posterior Stabilized Versus Optetrak Hi-Flex
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the differences in clinical outcomes between the Optetrak® Posterior Stabilized ("Optetrak® PS", Exactech, Gainesville, FL) and the Optetrak® Hi-Flex™ ("Optetrak® HF", Exactech, Gainesville, FL) knee designs. The null hypothesis is that there is no difference in postoperative knee flexion between the Optetrak® PS and Optetrak® HF groups.

Arthroplasty, Replacement, Knee
Replacement of the knee joint.
Replacement for a knee joint.
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.

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...
The lateral compartment is predominantly affected in approximately 10% of patients with osteoarthritis of the knee. The anatomy, kinematics and loading during movement differ considerably between medi...
Background and purpose Primary spontaneous osteonecrosis of the knee is a painful lesion in the elderly without any known cause. The onset of pain is usually acute. The prognosis is poor with high fre...
PURPOSE: Unicompartmental knee replacement preserves uninvolved osteocartilaginous and soft tissue structures, thereby allowing a more physiological and early clinical and functional recovery. The aim...
