The objective of this study was to measure the dimensions and the angulations of the femur and tibia for arthritic knees that were scheduled for total knee surgery. The purpose was to provide information for the design of surgical instruments such as cutting guides. Instruments made using three-dimensional printing were a particular consideration because of the variations in sizing that are possible.

Total knee replacement patients have shown reductions in knee flexion range of motion, knee extensor moments, and gait speed during stair ascent and stair descent. However, it is unknown how patients ...
Periprosthetic fractures around total knee arthroplasty have become more common with the increasing incidence of total knee arthroplasty. These fractures are challenging to treat, especially in older ...
The aim of the present study is to compare sagittal gait kinematics of ankle, knee and hip joints between subjects with unicondylar and total knee arthroplasty and age matched healthy controls. Since ...
The purpose of the present study was to compare patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) and conventional surgical instrumentation (CSI) for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in terms of early implant migra...
Although patellectomy is a rarely performed surgical procedure, patients may still progress to develop osteoarthritis of the tibiofemoral compartments leading to total knee replacement surgery. Due to...
Patient-specific instrumentation guides have previously been used to improving surgical accuracy and ease of implantation during Total Knee Replacement but have received less attention for...
1. To determine whether the low-dose, biplanar x-ray imaging (EOS) has the same accuracy as computed axial tomography (CT) 2. To validate low-dose, biplanar x-ray imaging (EOS) as ...
To determine if the use of patient-specific custom cutting blocks for implantation of total knee components results in improved limb alignment and component positioning compared to regular...
This is a prospective, multicenter clinical study designed to facilitate the collection and evaluation of workflow efficiency, patient pain and function, and adverse event data. This clini...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether intraoperative computer-assisted navigation improves prosthetic implant positioning as compared to conventional intraoperatve instrumentat...
Replacement of the knee joint.
Replacement for a knee joint.
An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
Partial or total replacement of a joint.
Partial or total replacement of one or more FINGERS, or a FINGER JOINT.
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 ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
