The purpose of this study is to determine if there are any clinical or radiographic differences in non-posterior stabilized rotating mobile bearing design versus a posterior stabilized rotating mobile bearing designs.
Out comes measures were to determine
1. whether the knee and function scores and the radiographic results of the knees with a PFC Sigma RP knee prosthesis would be better than those with an LCS RP prosthesis.
2. whether the patients with a PFC RP knee prosthesis would have a better range of knee motion than those with an LCS RP prosthesis.
3. whether patient satisfaction and preference would be better in the patients having a PFC Sigma RP knee prosthesis than those of patients having an LCS RP knee prosthesis
4. whether complication rate would be less in the knees with a PFC sigma RP knee prosthesis than in the knees with an LCS RP prosthesis.

The main objective of this study is to determine if the P.F.C. Sigma RP-F Knee delivers a greater post-operative range of motion (ROM) compared with the P.F.C. Sigma RP Knee in primary TKA...
The primary objective of this investigation is to evaluate the performance (in terms of post-operative active range of motion at one year) of the P.F.C. Sigma and P.F.C. Sigma Rotating Pla...
Comparison of two unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKA), to see if Sigma UKA performs equally good as the Oxford UKA. The study focuses on how well the arthroplasty is fixated to the ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate if the P.F.C. Sigma RPF knee accommodates functional stability with a post-operative passive range of motion of greater than 125° of flexion and t...
The primary objective of this investigation was to evaluate & compare the performance of the P.F.C. Sigma Knee Cruciate-retaining all-polyethylene and metal-backed tibia components using R...
Increasing evidences have implicated that sigma-2 receptor is a biomarker and significantly over-expressed in many proliferative cancer cells with no or low expression in normal cells. Sigma-2 recepto...
Osteoarthritis is the most common degenerative joint disease and causes major pain and disability in adults. It has been reported that mitochondrial dysfunction in chondrocytes was associated with ost...
To determine the relationship of meniscal damage to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) features of compartment-specific patellofemoral joint (PFJ) osteoarthritis (OA) at baseline and 2 years later.
The goal of this study was to model the longitudinal progression of knee osteoarthritis (OA) and build a prognostic tool that uses data collected in one year to predict disease progression over eight ...
A class of cell surface receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Sigma receptors were originally considered to be opioid receptors because they bind certain synthetic opioids. However they also interact with a variety of other psychoactive drugs, and their endogenous ligand is not known (although they can react to certain endogenous steroids). Sigma receptors are found in the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems, and in some peripheral tissues.
A DNA-directed RNA polymerase found in BACTERIA. It is a holoenzyme that consists of multiple subunits including sigma factor 54.
A protein which is a subunit of RNA polymerase. It effects initiation of specific RNA chains from DNA.
An IBUPROFEN-type anti-inflammatory analgesic and antipyretic. It is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.
