Summary of "Medial knee stability at flexion increases tibial internal rotation and knee flexion angle after posterior-stabilized total knee arthroplasty."

Soft-tissue balance is an important element for the success of total knee arthroplasty; however, the influence of intraoperative soft-tissue balance on knee kinematics in posterior-stabilized-total knee arthroplasty remains unknown. We investigated whether intraoperative soft-tissue balance could influence knee kinematics and flexion angle after posterior-stabilized-total knee arthroplasty.

In Vivo Kinematics of Bicruciate-Retaining Total Knee Arthroplasty with Anatomical Articular Surface under High-Flexion Conditions.

Bicruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty (BCR-TKA) recreates normal knee movement by preserving the anterior cruciate and posterior cruciate ligaments. However, in vivo kinematics of BCR-TKA with ...

Greater medial tibial slope is associated with increased anterior tibial translation in females with an ACL-deficient knee.

The purpose of the study was to determine the correlation between medial tibial slope (MTS) and anterior tibial translation (ATT) in female patients with an ACL-deficient knee. It was hypothesized tha...

Tibial tray thickness does not significantly increase medial tibial bone resorption: Using tibial bone density as an objective measurement method.

Recent studies have reported the occurrence of medial tibial bone resorption following total knee replacement. One study proposed that a thick tibial tray results in stress shielding and increases the...

Internal meniscus resections do not affect anterior knee joint stability.

Meniscus injuries lead to increased knee joint instability. Currently, however, it is unclear whether a relevant medial meniscus part resection leads to an increased ventral tibia translation with in...

Impact of Medial Meniscotibial Ligament Disruption Compared to Peripheral Medial Meniscal Tear on Knee Biomechanics.

Medial meniscotibial ligament (MTL) lesions may go unrecognized and untreated and have detrimental impact on knee biomechanics and joint pathology. Therefore, this study was designed to compare the bi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 ligament that travels from the medial epicondyle of the FEMUR to the medial margin and medial surface of the TIBIA. The medial meniscus is attached to its deep surface.

CONNECTIVE TISSUE of the anterior compartment of the THIGH that has its origins on the anterior aspect of the iliac crest and anterior superior iliac spine, and its insertion point on the iliotibial tract. It plays a role in medial rotation of the THIGH, steadying the trunk, and in KNEE extension.

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.

Disease involving the femoral nerve. The femoral nerve may be injured by ISCHEMIA (e.g., in association with DIABETIC NEUROPATHIES), nerve compression, trauma, COLLAGEN DISEASES, and other disease processes. Clinical features include MUSCLE WEAKNESS or PARALYSIS of hip flexion and knee extension, ATROPHY of the QUADRICEPS MUSCLE, reduced or absent patellar reflex, and impaired sensation over the anterior and medial thigh.
