Knee Kinematics for Subjects With Zimmer-Biomet Posterior Cruciate Retaining or Posterior Stabilizing Total Knee Arthroplasty

2019-10-01 07:55:15 | BioPortfolio


25 subjects implanted with a Zimmer-Biomet Posterior Cruciate Retaining (PCR) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and 25 subjects implanted with a Zimmer-Biomet Posterior Stabilizing (PS) TKA will be asked to perform stepping up and deep knee bend activities while under fluoroscopic surveillance (x-ray video). The movements between the two different types of TKAs will be compared.

Does Recession of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament Influence Outcome in Total Knee Arthroplasty?

For a PCL-retaining (posterior cruciate ligament) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) to function suitably, proper soft tissue balancing, including PCL recession, is required. Yet, when the recession of the...

Comparison of Contact Kinematics in Posterior-Stabilized and Cruciate-Retaining Total Knee Arthroplasty at Long-Term Follow-Up.

There is controversy regarding the superiority of posterior-stabilizing (PS) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and cruciate-retaining (CR) TKA. Substantial work has made comparisons between PS and CR TKA ...

J-curve design total knee arthroplasty: the posterior stabilized shows wider medial pivot compared to the cruciate retaining during chair raising.

Which total knee arthroplasty (TKA) design represents the better solution to restore a correct knee biomechanics is still debated. The aim of this study was to compare posterior stabilized (PS) and cr...

Association Between Femoral Component Sagittal Positioning and Anterior Knee Pain in Total Knee Arthroplasty: A 10-Year Case-Control Follow-up Study of a Cruciate-Retaining Single-Radius Design.

Anterior knee pain is the most common complication of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The purpose of this study was to assess whether sagittal femoral component position is an independent predictor of ...

Influence of Variation in Sagittal Placement of the Femoral Component after Cruciate-Retaining Total-Knee Arthroplasty.

Prosthetic alignment is an important factor for long-term survival in cruciate-retaining (CR) total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The purpose of this study is to investigate the influence of sagittal place...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rebuilding of the POSTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee.

A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the anterolateral surface of the medial condyle of the femur, passes posteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the posterior intercondylar area of the tibia.

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.

Rebuilding of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee. AUTOGRAFTING or ALLOGRAFTING of tissues is often used.

Replacement of the knee joint.
