The purpose of this study was to define various anteroposterior axes of the tibial component as references and to evaluate their accuracy and variability using virtual surgery. It was hypothesized that (1) Akagi's Line could result in high accuracy and low variability in varus osteoarthritic knees; (2) anteroposterior axes defined by using the tibial bony cutting surface as a landmark might be good substitutes for Akagi's Line; and (3) extra-articular bony landmarks might influence the variability of the anteroposterior axis.

This study aimed to assess the reliability of measurements and bony landmarks for the rectosigmoid junction on MRI.
Anatomic reconstruction of the popliteus tendon and arcuate complex results in superior functional and a biomechanically more stable outcome compared with extra-anatomic techniques in posterolateral r...
The objective of the present study is to analyze and compare the cutting performance of segmented diamond blades when dry-cutting concrete. A cutting criteria is proposed to characterize the wear of t...
The outcome of single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction depends largely on the anatomic placement of bone tunnel. The lateral intercondylar ridge (LIR) and bifurcate ridge (BR) ar...
Aseptic loosening remains to be a major reason for revision in total knee arthroplasty. Cement penetration of 2 to 5 mm increases the interface strength and consequently decreases the likelihood of ...
Neuraxial anaesthesia can be more difficult and associated with more complications if the patient's bony landmarks are difficult to palpate. They are more likely to be difficult to palpate...
Spinal anesthesia is the technique of choice in patients undergoing total joint arthroplasty at Toronto Western Hospital (UHN). The most significant predictor of the ease of performance of...
Anesthesia trainees can perform spinal anesthesia in patients who have poorly-palpable surface landmarks with fewer needle passes using an ultrasound-guided technique compared to the conve...
The classical method for spinal anesthesia relies on the use of bony landmarks to identify the level and point of entry of the spinal needle. Over the years, in experienced hands, this met...

The interarticular fibrocartilages of the superior surface of the tibia.
Disease of the TIBIAL NERVE (also referred to as the posterior tibial nerve). The most commonly associated condition is the TARSAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. However, LEG INJURIES; ISCHEMIA; and inflammatory conditions (e.g., COLLAGEN DISEASES) may also affect the nerve. Clinical features include PARALYSIS of plantar flexion, ankle inversion and toe flexion as well as loss of sensation over the sole of the foot. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, p32)
The anterior and posterior arteries created at the bifurcation of the popliteal artery. The anterior tibial artery begins at the lower border of the popliteus muscle and lies along the tibia at the distal part of the leg to surface superficially anterior to the ankle joint. Its branches are distributed throughout the leg, ankle, and foot. The posterior tibial artery begins at the lower border of the popliteus muscle, lies behind the tibia in the lower part of its course, and is found situated between the medial malleolus and the medial process of the calcaneal tuberosity. Its branches are distributed throughout the leg and foot.
Short tracts of DNA sequence that are used as landmarks in GENOME mapping. In most instances, 200 to 500 base pairs of sequence define a Sequence Tagged Site (STS) that is operationally unique in the human genome (i.e., can be specifically detected by the polymerase chain reaction in the presence of all other genomic sequences). The overwhelming advantage of STSs over mapping landmarks defined in other ways is that the means of testing for the presence of a particular STS can be completely described as information in a database.
The medial terminal branch of the sciatic nerve. The tibial nerve fibers originate in lumbar and sacral spinal segments (L4 to S2). They supply motor and sensory innervation to parts of the calf and foot.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
