The continuous turnover of BONE MATRIX and mineral that involves first an increase in BONE RESORPTION (osteoclastic activity) and later, reactive BONE FORMATION (osteoblastic activity). The process of bone remodeling takes place in the adult skeleton at discrete foci. The process ensures the mechanical integrity of the skeleton throughout life and plays an important role in calcium HOMEOSTASIS. An imbalance in the regulation of bone remodeling's two contrasting events, bone resorption and bone formation, results in many of the metabolic bone diseases, such as OSTEOPOROSIS.

Osteotomy of the tibia for correction of complex deformity. (1/220)

Twenty complex tibial deformities due to anterior poliomyelitis in 18 patients were corrected by a modified O'Donoghue osteotomy. This technique allowed correction of the deformity in three planes. This was achieved by widening the rectangular window distally to correct both rotation and valgus and by trimming the anterior edges of the step cuts to correct flexion deformity. An above-knee cast was applied for eight to 13 weeks and the patients followed up for a mean of 3.2 years. One of the 18 patients developed delayed union because of fracture of the medial limb of the step cut. The results showed excellent correction of the three-plane deformity and there was no recurrence. This method of osteotomy is a safe and simple procedure which does not require internal fixation and allows correction of torsional and angular deformity.  (+info)

The mechanism of the effect of obesity in knee osteoarthritis: the mediating role of malalignment. (2/220)

OBJECTIVE: Obesity is most strongly linked to osteoarthritis (OA) at the knee. Varus malalignment was examined as a possible local mediator that may increase the impact of body weight at the knee, versus the hip or ankle. Compartment load distribution is more equitable in valgus than in varus knees, and valgus knees may better tolerate obesity. We therefore tested whether 1) body mass index (BMI) is correlated with OA severity in varus knees, 2) the BMI-OA severity correlation is weaker in valgus than in varus knees, 3) BMI is correlated with the severity of varus malalignment, and 4) the BMI-medial tibiofemoral OA severity relationship is reduced after controlling for varus malalignment. METHODS: In 300 community-recruited patients with knee OA, 2 groups (varus and valgus) were identified based on dominant knee alignment on a full-limb radiograph, i.e., the angle formed by the intersection of the femoral and tibial mechanical axes. Severity of knee OA was assessed by measurement of the narrowest joint space width on radiographs of knees in a fluoroscopy-confirmed semiflexed position. RESULTS: Alignment direction was symmetric (or neutral in 1 limb) in 87% of patients. One hundred fifty-four patients had varus knees and 115 had valgus knees. BMI correlated with OA severity in the varus group (r = -0.29, P = 0.0009) but not in the valgus group (r = -0.13, P = 0.17). BMI correlated with malalignment in those with varus knees (r = 0.26) but not in those with valgus knees (r = 0.16). The partial correlation of BMI and OA severity, controlling for sex, was reduced from 0.24 (P = 0.002) to 0.04 (P = 0.42) when varus malalignment was added to the model. CONCLUSION: BMI was related to OA severity in those with varus knees but not in those with valgus knees. Much of the effect of BMI on the severity of medial tibiofemoral OA was explained by varus malalignment, after controlling for sex. Whether it precedes or follows the onset of disease, varus malalignment is one local factor that may contribute to rendering the knee most vulnerable to the effects of obesity.  (+info)

Open-wedge osteotomy by hemicallotasis or the closed-wedge technique for osteoarthritis of the knee. A randomised study of 50 operations. (3/220)

We describe the results of 50 operations carried out on 46 patients with medial osteoarthritis of the knee of Ahlback grade 1 to 3. Patients were randomised either to a closed-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) or an open-wedge procedure based on the hemicallotasis technique (HCO). Their median age was 55 years (38 to 68). The preoperative median hip-knee-ankle (HKA) angle was 171 degrees (164 to 176) in the HTO group and 173 degrees (165 to 179) in the HCO group. After six weeks, the median HKA angle was 185 degrees (176 to 194) in the HTO group and 184 degrees (181 to 188) in the HCO group. In the HTO group, seven patients were within the range of 182 degrees to 186 degrees compared with 21 in the HCO group (p < 0.001). One year later, ten HTO patients were within this range while the HKA angulation in the HCO group was unchanged. At two years the numbers were 11 and 18, respectively. We evaluated the clinical results on the Hospital for Special Surgery, Lysholm and Wallgren-Tegner activity scores, and patients completed part of the Nottingham Health Profile questionnaire. An impartial observer at the two-year follow-up concluded that all scores had improved, but found no clinical differences between the groups.  (+info)

Hemicallotasis open-wedge osteotomy for osteoarthritis of the knee. Complications in 308 operations. (4/220)

We studied the complications after open-wedge osteotomy by hemicallotasis in 308 consecutive patients, most of whom had osteoarthritis of the knee. The participating surgeons, who worked at 17 hospitals, used their discretion in selecting patients, operating techniques and external fixators. The general complications included 11 cases of deep-vein thrombosis (4%), six of nonunion (2%) and one of septic arthritis of the knee. There were technical complications in 13 patients (4%). In 157 patients (51%) pin-site infections were recorded; of these, 96% were minor and responded to wound toilet and antibiotic treatment. A total of 18 revision procedures was carried out.  (+info)

The sulcus angle and malalignment of the extensor mechanism of the knee. (5/220)

Anterior knee pain due to dysplasia of the extensor mechanism is common. We have studied 137 knees (103 patients) in order to identify a rapid and reproducible radiological feature which would indicate the need for further analysis. Overall, 67 knees (49%) had at least one radiological abnormality; 70 (51%) were considered normal. There were five cases of Dejour type-3 dysplasia of the femoral trochlea, nine of type-2 and 12 of type-1. There were 49 cases of patella alta and five of patella infera. Four knees had an abnormal lateral patellofemoral angle (patellar tilt), and in 15 knees there was more than one abnormality. Classification of trochlear dysplasia was difficult and showed poor reproducibility. This was also true for the measurement of the lateral patellofemoral angle. Patellar height was more easily measured but took time. The sulcus angle is an easily and rapidly measurable feature which was reproducible and was closely related to other features of dysplasia of the extensor mechanism. The finding of a normal sulcus angle suggested that seeking other radiological evidence of malalignment of the extensor mechanism was unlikely to reveal additional useful information. The severity of other features of dysplasia of the extensor mechanism correlated with increasing sulcus angle.  (+info)

MRI study of talonavicular alignment in club foot. (6/220)

We studied in vivo the talonavicular alignment of club foot in infants using MRI. We examined 26 patients (36 feet) with congenital club foot. The mean age at examination was 9.0 months (4 to 12). All analyses used MRI of the earliest cartilaginous development of the tarsal bones in the transverse plane, rather than the ossific nucleus. The difference in the mean talar neck angle (44.0 +/- 8.1 degrees) in club foot was statistically significant (p < 0.001) when compared with that of the normal foot (30.8 +/- 5.5 degrees). The difference between the mean angles in the group treated by operation (47.9 +/- 6.7 degrees) and those treated conservatively (40.1 +/- 7.5 degrees) was also statistically significant. The anatomical relationship between the head of the talus and the navicular was divided into two patterns, based on the position of the mid-point of the navicular related to the long axis of the head. In the operative group, 18 feet were classified as having a medial shift of the navicular and none had a lateral shift. In the conservative group, 12 showed a medial shift of the navicular and six a lateral shift. All nine unaffected normal feet in which satisfactory MRI measurements were made showed a lateral shift of the navicular. Club feet had a larger talar neck angle and a more medially deviated navicular when compared with normal feet. This was more marked in the surgical group than in the conservative group.  (+info)

Computerised measurement of tibiofemoral alignment. (7/220)

Tibiofemoral alignment has a direct correlation with the survival of total knee arthroplasty. Traditionally, it has been measured using a goniometer on radiographs. We describe new software which measures this alignment on scanned radiographs by automatically detecting bones in the image. Two surgeons used conventional methods and two clerical officers used the computerised routine to assess 58 radiographs of the knee on two occasions. There were no significant differences between any of the paired comparisons. The largest mean difference detected was 1.19 degrees. Across all comparisons, the mean correlation was 0.755. A standardised routine for measuring tibiofemoral alignment was the greatest factor in reducing error in our study. These results show that non-medical staff can reliably use the software to measure tibiofemoral alignment. It has the potential to measure all the parameters recommended by the Knee Society.  (+info)

Fracture of the proximal tibia six months after Fulkerson osteotomy. A report of two cases. (8/220)

The Fulkerson osteotomy has proved to be a reliable treatment for subluxation of the patella due to malalignment. Aggressive rehabilitation in the early postoperative period is unwise since the proximal tibia is weakened by the oblique osteotomy. Early weight-bearing and unrestricted activity have caused fractures in a few patients. Even late in the postoperative period the osteotomy may adversely influence the biomechanical properties of the proximal tibia. We describe two athletes who sustained a fracture of the proximal tibia, during recreational activities, six months after a Fulkerson osteotomy. Both had been bearing full weight for about ten weeks without complaint. Bony healing of the osteotomy had been demonstrated on plain radiographs at ten and at 12 weeks. After a Fulkerson osteotomy, jogging and activities which impose considerable impact force should be discouraged for at least nine to 12 months.  (+info)

The gold standard for measuring knee alignment is mechanical axis determined using full-limb radiographs (FLR). Measurement of joint alignment using antero-posterior (AP) knee radiographs is more accessible, economical and involves less radiation exposure to the patient compared with using full-limb radiographs. The aim of this study was to compare and assess the reproducibility of knee joint axial alignment on full-limb radiographs and conventional AP knee radiographs. Knee alignment was measured in 40 subjects (80 knees) from the TwinsUK registry. Measurement of mechanical knee alignment was from FLR, and anatomic knee alignment from weight-bearing AP knee radiographs. Reproducibility was assessed by intra-class correlation coefficients and kappa statistics. Reproducibility of knee alignment for both methods was good, with intra-observer ICCs of 0.99 for both FLR and AP radiographs. The mean alignment angle on FLR was 178.9 degrees (SD 2.1, range 173-183 degrees ), and 179.0 degrees (SD 2.1, range
The hospital registry was searched for patients younger than 45 years and older than 16, who received a CT according to the Imperial Knee Protocol. Patients with prosthesis, osteoarthritis, fractures or injury of the collateral ligaments were excluded. Finally, 308 non-osteoarthritic knees of 160 patients remained (102 males and 58 females, mean age ± standard deviation (SD) 30 ± 7 years). The overall lower limb alignment was defined as the hip-knee-ankle angle (HKA), which is formed by lines connecting the centers of the femoral head, the knee and the talus. The angle was measured using a commercially planning software (KneePLAN 3D, Symbios, Yverdon les Bains, Switzerland). Descriptive statistics, such as means, ranges, and measures of variance (e.g., standard deviations) are presented. Based on these results, the currently used classification system was evaluated and a new system, based on phenotypes, was introduced. These phenotypes consist of a phenotype-specific mean value (a HKA value) ...
Usually, our legs are straight from our hips to our ankles. Some patients may develop a knock-knee or bow-leg deformity over time. This is referred to as knee malalignment.. When the bones do not align properly, joint forces are not evenly distributed and may overload one side causing pain and possibly deterioration. An osteotomy is a cut in the femur or tibia bone to realign the leg to a straight leg. The cut in the bone is then typically fixed with a plate and screws.. ...

Following injury, appropriate investiga- tions must be carried out by the medical teams. This may consist of x-rays, com- puterised tomography (CT) scans or mag- netic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cer- vical spine. X-rays will help in diagnosing fractures or malalignment. However inter- pretation of x-rays can be difficult. For example, is there an acute injury, or is it signs of old pathology on the x-ray? In this case further investigations with CT or MRI scans are more diagnostic ...
A system and method is disclosed for assembling a pre-formatted top half and a pre-formatted bottom half of a disk platter, and for further assembling pre-formatted disk platters into a multi-platter MO disk drive, with the servo sectors in a predetermined rotational alignment and with the tracks in good radial alignment. Because of the known rotational alignment of the servo sectors, it is possible to have independent verification of the operation of the flying MO head switch. This independent verification prevents data corruption due to an unreliable flying MO head switch.
Background: In the current study, we investigated that how sagittal femoral bowing can affect the sagittal alignment ofthe femoral component in total knee arthroplasty (TKA).Methods: There were 25 patients underwent TKA. Long leg radiography in lateral view was performed. The sagittalfemoral bowing (SFB) and component alignment in relation to the sagittal mechanical axis and distal anterior cortical line(DACL) were measured. Finally, the correlation of component alignment and SFB was examined.Results: Mean SFB was 7±2.7 degrees. The component was in flexion position in relation to mechanical axis and DACL as8.4±2.9 degrees and 1.7±0.9 degrees, respectively. The flexion alignment of the component was significantly correlatedwith SFB.Conclusion: Mechanical alignment of the limb in both coronal and sagittal axes should be preserved in TKA. SFB cansignificantly increased the flexion alignment of the femoral component.
BACKGROUND: Total knee replacement is an effective treatment for knee arthritis. While the majority of TKAs have demonstrated promising long-term results, up to 20 % of patients remain dissatisfied with the outcome of surgery at 1 year. Implant malalignment has been implicated as a contributing factor to less successful outcomes. Recent evidence has challenged the relationship between alignment and patient reported outcome measures. Given the number of procedures per year, clarity on this integral aspect of the procedure is necessary. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association between malalignment and PROMS following primary TKA. METHODS: A systematic review of MEDLINE, CINHAL, and EMBASE was carried out to identify studies published from 2000 onwards. The study protocol including search strategy can be found on the PROSPERO database for systematic reviews. RESULTS: From a total of 2107 citations, 18 studies fulfilled the inclusion criteria, comprising of 2214 patients. Overall 41 comparisons were made

Prior studies have reported increased failure rates in obese patients with postoperative limb mal-alignment. This study was undertaken to determine if a relationship exists between postoperative limb alignment and BMI in patients undergoing primary TKA performed with mechanical instruments. An IRB-approved retrospective review of 196 knees was undertaken. Limb alignment was determined on full-length, standing, hip-to-ankle x-rays, preoperatively and postoperatively. The effects of gender, side, preoperative mechanical alignment and BMI on postoperative alignment were analyzed via multivariate regression analysis. Both preoperative mechanical limb alignment (P , 0.001) and BMI (P = 0.009) had a significant effect on postoperative limb alignment following TKA performed with mechanical instruments.. ...

The clinical outcomes were not significantly different between the navigation and non-navigation groups. Furthermore, post-operative reorientation of the acetabular fragment was similar between the navigation and non-navigation groups. However, the discrepancy between the pre-operative planning line and post-operative osteotomy line was significantly improved in the navigation group compared with that in the non-navigation group (p < 0.05). Further, the complication rate was significantly improved in the navigation group (p < 0.001). Conclusion The accuracy of the osteotomys position was significantly improved by using the navigation. Therefore, the use of navigation during peri-acetabular osteotomy can avoid complications. ...
BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to analyze femoral shaft sagittal parameters in Chinese osteoarthritis (OA) patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and identify whether the parameters in the coronal plane could be predictors of those in the sagittal plane.

These make clever use of x-points: special locations where the magnetic field topology is able to expand and redirect the plasma exhaust flow into multiple channels.. First, a top-bottom symmetric core plasma is created, defined by two primary magnetic x-points (Figure 1). In this configuration, experiments indicate that approximately 90 percent of the heat exits the core plasma on the outer half of the device along the two outer legs [Abstract 1]. Extending the length of the outer channels and embedding secondary x-points in them will then enhance power exhaust handling. In addition, this configuration promotes the build up of high gas pressures in the legs.. A recent assessment of the power handling capabilities of long-leg divertor configurations was performed and compared to conventional configurations using an edge plasma simulation code ...

Computer assisted surgery (CAS) - Does computer navigation improve TKA results? The only thing that has been proved, is that it improves coronal alignment. Whether this translates into better longevity of the joint is still to be proved. CAS is as good as the operating surgeon. The surgeon needs to feed the computer information about the patients body parameters. He does this by placing probes at fixed points which transmit information to the computer via infra red rays (referencing). Using this information the computer creates a virtual model of the patients knee. Over here lies the problem. There are a lot of errors in referencing. If wrong information is fed to the computer, wrong information is going to come out. Garbage in is garbage out. And yes, let me make it clear, the computer is not doing the surgery. To summarise, CAS is here to stay and will be indispensable in the future, but today it is of doubtful benefit in routine cases. However it is very useful in complicated cases, like ...
Positive mechanical alignment is provided between substrates using micro-bump contacts by forming detented conductive bump contacts on one substrate having a concave end which receive and align the generally convex contour of bump contacts on the other substrate. Various configurations of concavities and convexities are described. Flux may be disposed in the concave end of the detented bump contact to promote formation of joints between the concave and convex bump contacts. Both bump contacts may be formed of reflowable material, such as solder, or one or the other of the contacts may be formed of a non-reflowable material which may also function as a standoff between the two substrates. Each substrate is provided with a plurality of bump contacts, and one substrate may be provided with a combination of convex and concave bump contacts corresponding to concave and convex bump contacts on the other substrate. The inventive technique is useful for joining die-to-die, die-to-substrate, or package-to

BACKGROUND: The purpose of our study was to identify factors affecting posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) tightness during cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty. METHODS: A total of 225 varus osteoarthritic knees that underwent cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty were included in this study. When the flexion gap was tighter than the extension gap after all bone resection and the lift-off sign was positive during surgery, the PCL was released. The association between PCL release and potential risk factors, such as age, gender, body mass index, preoperative range of motion, anterior cruciate ligament status, preoperative hip-knee-ankle angle (HKA), decrease in posterior condylar offset, and also change in tibial posterior slope angle (TPSA) from preoperative to postoperative measurement, was evaluated by univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses ...

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a factor that has a significant negative impact on the quality of life (QoL). Vertebral fractures and/or spinal malalignment may influence the frequency of GERD. However, the epidemiology and pathology of GERD in patients with adult spinal deformity (ASD) are still largely unknown. To establish the optimal surgical strategy for GERD in patients treated surgically for ASD, we sought to clarify the GERD prevalence, determine radiographically which spinal malalignment parameters influence GERD risk, and evaluate GERD improvement postoperatively. Seventy-one consecutive patients with ASD who were treated with thoracolumbar corrective surgery and followed up for at least 1 year were enrolled. GERD was diagnosed by a gastroenterologist based on proton pump inhibitor medication response and/or an FSSG score > 8 points. Full-length lateral radiographs in a standing posture and in a supine, fulcrum backward-bending (FBB) position were taken preoperatively and 1 year

PFS treatment algorithm:. The PFS treatment algorithm is a objective goal driven treatment program. Treatment is at the therapist discretion with the objective to meet the requirements for each subgroup. Evidence from literature guides treatment to best meet these goals.. The first group within the classification system is Fear Avoidance, as research has shown that a change in fear-avoidance beliefs about physical activity is one of the best predictors for improved functional outcome.. The second group is Flexibility. This is the second group in the system because research shows that patients with decreased flexibility are unable to properly perform functional malalignment test. Also quadriceps length and gastrocnemius/soleus lengths are strongly associated with PFS.. The third group is Functional Malalignment. This group assesses the patients form with functional tasks. If the patient demonstrates impaired mechanics, time is spent with strengthening and motor control so that the patient will ...

This studys aim was to assess the effect of component mal-alignment on outcome of Oxford Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKR). Two hundred and eleven knees implanted with a medial UKR, using a minimally invasive approach, were followed up at a minimum of 4 years. Sagittal and frontal plane femoral and tibial component alignments were determined from antero-posterior and lateral radiographs. The cohort was divided into alignment groups which represented consecutive 2.5 degrees intervals over the range of measured values for femoral varus/valgus, femoral flexion/extension, tibial varus/valgus and tibial tilt. The Oxford Knee Score (OKS) and incidence of radiolucency (RL) were compared between alignment groups for each alignment parameter. In 98% of cases the femoral components were positioned between 10 degrees varus and 10 degrees valgus; all femoral components were within +/-10 degrees flexion. In 92% of cases the tibial components were positioned between +/-5 degrees varus/valgus and superior
Patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) proponents have suggested the benefits of improved component alignment and reduced outliers. In this randomized controlled trial, we attempted to assess the advantage of using PSI over conventional intermedullary (IM) guides for primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with bilateral severe femoral bowing (| 5°). A parallel trial design was used with 1:1 allocation. We hypothesize that PSI would support more accurate alignment of components and the lower-limb axis during TKA with severe femoral bowing in comparison with conventional IM guides. Among 336 patients undergoing bilateral TKAs due to knee osteoarthritis, 29 patients with bilateral lateral femoral bowing of more than 5° were included in this study. Every patient was assigned randomly to PSI on one side and to conventional instrumentation lateralization of the entry point of the femoral IM guide was applied on the other with a goal of neutral mechanical alignment. The assessment of coronal alignment was
Methods/Design: Two hundred participants with painful radiographic medial knee OA and varus malalignment will be recruited from the community and randomly allocated to lateral wedge or control insole groups using concealed allocation. Participants will be blinded as to which insole is considered therapeutic. Blinded follow up assessment will be conducted at 12 months after randomisation. The outcome measures are valid and reliable measures recommended for OA clinical trials. Questionnaires will assess changes in pain, physical function and health-related quality-of-life. Magnetic resonance imaging will measure changes in tibial cartilage volume. To evaluate cost-effectiveness, participants will record the use of all health-related treatments in a log-book returned to the assessor on a monthly basis. To test the effect of the intervention using an intention-to-treat analysis, linear regression modelling will be applied adjusting for baseline outcome values and other demographic characteristics ...
The findings of the present study indicate that doxycycline is not effective in reducing symptoms in knee osteoarthritis patients over a 24-week study period, but is associated with an increased risk of adverse events. Although previously a possible structure-modifying effect of doxycycline was suggested, this is not accompanied by symptom relief in the short and medium term. Because of the unfavourable risk-benefit ratio, doxycycline should not be used in the management of knee osteoarthritis.. The lack of effect seen in this study is not caused by insufficient adherence to the medication. Although pill counts showed that approximately 20% of the patients did not reach the target of taking 80% or more of the study medication, subanalysis in adherent participants yielded the same findings. Although varus malalignment may have negated the symptom-modifying effect of doxycycline, as reported for the structure-modifying effects of doxycycline,29 this seems very unlikely as major malalignment was ...

Background: The aim of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of bone cuts and the resultant alignment, using theMyKnee patient specific cutting blocks.Methods: We retrospectively reviewed 132 patients undergoing primary TKR for osteoarthritis by one single surgeon.The operative time, the preoperative Hip-Knee-Ankle (HKA) axis based on the CT-scan, the postoperative HKA axisbased on long axis standing x-rays, the planned and the actual size of the femoral and the tibial components, and thenumber of the recuts which has been made intraoperative were measured.Results: The average preoperative HKA axis was 177.50 (range 163.50 to 1940), whereas the average postoperativeHKA axis was 179.40 (range 177.10 to 182.70). No outliers were reported in the study (0%). Intraoperatively, 4 femoralcomponents (3.03%), and 7 tibial components (5.30%) applied to the patients were different than the planned size.There was no need of recuts in any of our cases intraoperatively.Conclusion: The MyKnee system evaluated in this

Smart algorithms are used in Machine vision and Robotics to organize or extract high-level information from the available data. Nowadays, Machine learning is an essential and ubiquitous tool to automate extraction patterns or regularities from data (images in Machine vision; camera, laser, and sonar sensors data in Robotics) in order to solve various subject-oriented tasks such as understanding and classification of images content, navigation of mobile autonomous robot in uncertain environments, robot manipulation in medical robotics and computer-assisted surgery, and other. Usually such data have high dimensionality, however, due to various dependencies between their components and constraints caused by physical reasons, all „feasible and usable data‟ occupy only a very small part in high dimensional „observation space‟ with smaller intrinsic dimensionality. Generally accepted model of such data is manifold model in accordance with which the data lie on or near an unknown manifold ...

Critical to the longevity of an implant is the surgeons ability to restore the mechanical axis while balancing the flexion and extension gaps. Most surgeons accomplish this goal through a combination of measured resection and gap-balancing techniques, with the assistance of intramedullary and extramedullary guides.. Experience has shown that an optimal window exists with respect to the mechanical axis, and that outliers are prone to fail at an accelerated rate [1]. Additionally, better alignment is correlated with faster rehabilitation and better outcomes [2,3].. In an effort to limit the number of outliers, patient-specific instrumentation was developed. Using preoperative CT or MRI imaging to determine each particular patients mechanical axis, patient-specific instrumentation aims to improve the predictability and ease of component insertion. This technique has been shown to improve alignment and assist in component sizing [4-8] while providing the added benefits of decreased operative ...

This report does have pictures of some of the basic exercises Ive done along the way of my personal therapy regime. I sincerely want fellow patients to have success in conservative care for their SI joints and avoid surgery. However, in my case, I was already too hypermobile on my SI joints with burning nerve pain going down my legs and I was not able to overcome by exercise alone; therefore, I elected to have the surgery. Now I can do all exercise that is given to me without suffering consequences of SI joint pain and the torsion of my lumbar discs from pelvic rotations. I do not have any regrets whatsoever of my prior SI surgery. I only have thankfulness that stability of my SI joints gave me a wonderful platform to build upon in order to sort out the rest of my malalignment syndrome. Having stable si joints is one thing; however, re-patterning muscles does take a tremendous amount of work.
