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.Osteoarthritis, Knee: Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage.

INTRODUCTION: injuries represent a significant cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and road traffic crashes accounts for a significant proportion of these injuries. Tanzania is among the countries with high rates of road traffic crashes. The aim of this study was to determine the pattern, associated factors and management of road traffic injury patients in Tanzania. METHODS: a cross-sectional study of patients involved in motor traffic crashes and attended in six public hospitals of Tanzania mainland between April 2014 and September 2014. RESULTS: a total of 4675 road traffic injury patients were seen in studied hospitals, 76.6% were males. Majority (70.2%) were between 18 - 45 years age group. Motorcycles were the leading cause of road traffic crashes (53.4%), and drivers (38.3%) accounted for majority of victims. Fractures accounted for 34.1%, and injuries were severe in 2.2% as determined by the Kampala trauma score II (KTS II). ...
Falls are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries in the United States. In 2006, nearly 8 million persons were treated in emergency departments (EDs) for fall injuries (1). Pets might present a fall hazard (2), but few data are available to support this supposition. To assess the incidence of fall-related injuries associated with cats and dogs, CDC analyzed data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP) for the period 2001--2006. This report describes the results of that analysis, which showed that an estimated average of 86,629 fall injuries each year were associated with cats and dogs, for an average annual injury rate of 29.7 per 100,000 population. Nearly 88% of injuries were associated with dogs, and among persons injured, females were 2.1 times more likely to be injured than males. Prevention strategies should focus on 1) increasing public awareness of pets and pet items as fall hazards and of situations that ...
INTRODUCTION: A significant proportion of patients suffer depression following traumatic injuries. Once manifested, major depression is challenging to overcome and its presence risks impairing the potential for physical rehabilitation and functional recovery. Risk stratification for early detection and intervention in these instances is important. This study aims to investigate patient and injury characteristics associated with an increased risk for depression.. METHODS: All patients with traumatic injuries were recruited from the trauma registry of an urban university hospital between 2007 and 2012. Patient and injury characteristics as well as outcomes were collected for analysis. Patients under the age of eighteen, prescribed antidepressants within one year of admission, in-hospital deaths and deaths within 30days of trauma were excluded. Pre- and post-admission antidepressant data was requested from the national drugs registry. Post-traumatic depression ...
Recent studies have highlighted the importance of expeditious transfusion of plasma, platelets and red blood cells in a 1:1:1 ratio for severe trauma patients who are at risk of exsanguination. Since thawing plasma can be time-consuming, a recent study published in TRANSFUSION examined the hemostatic properties of thawed and liquid plasma over several days of storage. Briefly, during initial processing after donation 17 pooled ABO-matched plasma units were split into a liquid plasma unit and a frozen unit (subsequently thawed and stored for up to five days), and multiple hemostasis parameters, coagulation factors, and platelet activation assays were performed. A further 119 liquid plasma samples were analyzed for platelet activation and cellular content. Liquid plasma at day seven was comparable to thawed plasma at day five by every assay. However, after 11 days of storage, coagulation factors started to decline in liquid plasma, and cold-induced contact activation was observed after 28 days of ...

Based on 8 years of nationally representative survey data, this study found that 25 of 100 children experience nonfatal injuries serious enough to require medical attention or restrict activity. This estimate is consistent with the injury rate reported by Scheidt and his colleagues,4,,29 which adjusted for the 12-month recall of injuries from the 1988 Child Health Supplement of the NHIS; by Rice et al2 from the 1984-1986 NHIS, the National Mortality Detail File, and the National Hospital Discharge Survey; and by Kogan et al30 based on the 1991 Longitudinal Follow-up to the National Maternal and Infant Health Survey. The nonfatal injury rate reported here is slightly higher than that described by Gallagher et al31 based on the 1980-1981 Massachusetts Statewide Childhood Injury Prevention Program Surveillance System (22 per 100 children). Although trends in injury rates were not our major focus, these similar injury rates ...
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.. ...

Injury prevention/public education programs begin with the collection and analysis of population and patient data from a wide variety of sources to describe the status of injury morbidity, mortality and distribution throughout the state. Injury epidemiology is concerned with the evaluation of the frequency, rates and pattern of injury events in a population and is obtained by analyzing data from sources such as death records, hospital discharge databases and data from EMS, Emergency Departments and trauma registries. Trauma systems must develop strategies that help prevent injury as part of an integrated, coordinated and inclusive trauma system. For years, the ISDH has conducted an array of injury prevention programs. With the creation of the ISDH Trauma and Injury Prevention Division in 2011, we have shifted our focus from injury prevention programming to the collection and ...

Despite reductions in youth pedestrian and bicyclist deaths over the past two decades, these injuries remain a substantial cause of morbidity and mortality for children and adolescents. There is a need for additional information on non-fatal pediatric pedestrian injuries and the role of traumatic brain injury (TBI), a leading cause of acquired disability. Using a multi-year national sample of emergency department (ED) records, we estimated annual motorized-vehicle related pediatric pedestrian and bicyclist (i.e. pedalcyclist) injury rates by age and region. We modeled in-hospital fatality risk controlling for age, gender, injury severity, TBI, and trauma center status. ED visits for pediatric pedestrian injuries declined 19.3% (95% CI 16.8, 21.8) from 2006 to 2012, with the largest decreases in 5-to-9 year olds and 10-to-14 year olds. Case fatality rates also declined 14.0%. There was no significant change in bicyclist ...

States with low nonfatal injury rates and high fatality rates tend to be in the South, have lower worker compensation benefits, be less unionized, and pay lower wages—while states with high nonfatal injury rates and lower fatality rates tend to be in the West, pay higher benefits and wages, be more strongly unionized, and carry out more workplace inspections.
June 2004-. "Violent behavior among adolescents is a significant problem worldwide, and a cross-national comparison of adolescent violent behaviors can provide information about the development and pattern of physical violence in young adolescents. Smith-Khuri and colleagues examined frequencies of adolescent violence-related behaviors in 5 countries and associations between violence-related behaviors and potential explanatory characteristics.". "A significant body of information currently exists describing violent behavior in the adolescent population of the United States, yet violent behavior in adolescents outside and in relation to the United States is not well characterized. Comparison of violence-related behaviors in US youths with those of their peers in other countries can provide a context for the US findings. Our analysis found that for 3 violence-related behaviors-fighting, weapon carrying, and injuries from fighting-adolescents from 5 European countries were ...
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. ...

Generally, surgeon-driven musculoskeletal evaluation systems are used for evaluating outcomes of patients who are treated with high tibial osteotomy. In this study, we investigated the effects of high tibial osteotomy using circular external fixator on quality of life. Twenty-one high tibial osteotomy of 19 patients were evaluated. Quality of life assessment was made using Short Form -36 at preoperative, before fixator removal and 6 months after fixator removal. After applying fixator, the physical function and physical role scores of Short Form-36 decreased and emotional role score did not improve. In other categories, significant improvements were observed when fixator in place. At the sixth month after fixator removal, significant improvements were dedected in all categories of Short Form-36. Although there was a decrease in physical functions after fixator application in patients who were treated with high tibial osteotomy using circular external fixator, ...

Background The most notable change in the treatment of fractures has been the shift from the mechanical aspects of internal fixation with absolute stability and primary bone union as the goal to the biological aspects of internal fixation with relative stability and healing with callus as the preferred method, with a huge focus on preservation of the blood supply of bone and soft tissue to ensure the continued vitality of the individual fragments to improve fracture healing. Percutaneous plate fixation minimizes soft tissue compromise with decreased incidence of wound breakdown and deep infection. It also preserves the vascularity of the bone fragments, and thus reduces the time for union, decreases the need for bone grafting even in comminuted fractures, and also decreases the incidence of nonunion, which requires a second major open intervention. Aim The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of minimally invasive plate ...
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 ...
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.. ...

High tibial osteotomy is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pressure on the damaged site of an arthritic knee joint. It is usually performed in arthritic conditions affecting only one side of your knee and the aim is to take pressure off the damaged area and shift it to the other side of your knee with healthy cartilage. During the surgery, your surgeon will remove or add a wedge of bone either below or above the knee joint depending on the site of arthritic damage.. High tibial osteotomy is commonly used for patients with osteoarthritis that is isolated to a single compartment (unicompartmental osteoarthritis). It is also performed for treating a variety of knee conditions such as gonarthrosis with varus or valgus malalignment, osteochondritis dissecans, osteonecrosis, posterolateral instability, and chondral resurfacing.. ...
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 ...

SHETTY, GM y MULLAJI, A. Alignment in computer-navigated versus conventional total knee arthroplasty for valgus deformity. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2009, vol.8, n.3, pp.40-46. ISSN 2309-8309.. INTRODUCTION: Significant improvement has been reported in limb alignment and component orientation with computer-navigated total knee arthroplasty (TKA) especially in varus deformities. Literature is lacking regarding the radiographic results of navigated TKA in valgus knees. This study aims to analyse the radiographic results of navigated TKAs in valgus knees and compare them with results of our conventional technique. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 120 primary TKAs done for valgus arthritic knees. Fifty-three computer-navigated TKAs (group N) were compared with a control group of 53 conventional TKAs (group C) for coronal and sagittal alignment of the femoral and tibial components on X-ray imaging at the end of two years after surgery. RESULTS: We found no ...
Achieving precise implant alignment is crucial for producing good outcomes after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We introduce a simple method for confirming the accuracy of tibial osteotomy during TKA. Two metallic markers were placed on the skin 20 cm apart, one on the tibial tuberosity and other on the tibial crest, points that are easily identified and palpated intraoperatively. Anteroposterior radiographs of the legs were obtained. We defined the line along the markers as the tuberosity line. The osteotomy line is perpendicular to the anatomical axis of the tibia. We then calculated the angle between these two lines and designated it the osteotomy angle. We set the osteotomy angle of the protractor, and cut the bone parallel to the osteotomy line of the protractor. Postoperatively, we analyzed the varus angle of the tibial osteotomy in 35 TKAs using the protractor. The average of the varus angle of the tibial osteotomy was 89.4° ± 1.6° (95% confidence interval of −1.0976, 0.0119). There ...
Purpose The purpose of this study was to quantify changes in knee loading in the three clinical planes, compensatory gait adaptations and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) resulting from opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO). Methods Gait analysis was performed on 18 participants (19 knees) with medial osteoarthritis (OA) and varus alignment pre- and post-HTO, along with 18 controls, to calculate temporal, kinematic and kinetic measures. Oxford Knee Score, Knee Outcome Survey and visual analogue pain scores were collected. Paired and independent sample tests identified changes following surgery and deviations from controls. Results HTO restored frontal and transverse plane knee joint loading to that of the control group, while reductions remained in the sagittal plane. Elevated frontal plane trunk sway (p = 0.031) and reduced gait speed (p = 0.042), adopted as compensatory gait changes pre-HTO, were corrected by the surgery. PROMs significantly improved (p ≤ ...

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) ...
Even a relatively small malalignment in normal knees can cause dramatic alterations in the pressures within the knee joint, and this negative effect can be greatly magnified if the cartilage within the knee has been damaged,? says researcher Dr Joseph Guettler, orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine fellow at Duke University. At the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine?s annual meeting in Orlando, FL, last month, Dr Guettler presented the results of a study of 8 human knee joints taken from cadavers.. Using special test equipment, the research team found that just 3? of malalignment can lead to serious cartilage deformation, more than doubling the pressures on the middle of the knee joint and increasing peak contact pressures by 68%. The study found that such small malalign-ments can lead to future trouble, which may include degenerative arthritis. The researchers urged doctors to closely monitor all young people who have reconstructive knee surgery to ensure ...
Bone tumor near the articular cartilage is hard to remove sufficiently without damaging adjacent joint. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of navigation-assisted surgery for saving joint in bone tumor resection or curettage. In this study, the investigators hypothesized that computer-assisted surgery is feasible method to get both enough margin and joint salvage. Each of them is important intermediate factor for either oncologic outcome or functional outcome respectively. The investigators designed this study to find what proportion of patients who underwent computer-assisted resection could get enough margins using some criteria obtained by overlapping preoperative and postoperative images. The investigators also evaluated whether computer-assisted surgery can be feasible for joint saving using some criteria including functional outcome ...

As several new tibial osteotomy plates recently appeared on the market, the aim of the present study was to compare mechanical static and fatigue strength of three newly designed plates with gold standard plates for the treatment of medial knee joint osteoarthritis. Sixteen fourth-generation tibial bone composites underwent a medial open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (HTO) according to standard techniques, using five TomoFix standard plates, five PEEKPower plates and six iBalance implants. Static compression load to failure and load-controlled cyclic fatigue failure tests were performed. Forces, horizontal and vertical displacements were measured; rotational permanent plastic deformations, maximal displacement ranges in the hysteresis loops of the cyclic loading responses and dynamic stiffness were determined. Static compression load to failure tests revealed that all plates showed sufficient stability up to 2400 N without any signs of opposite cortex fracture, which occurred above this load ...

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. METHODS: Standard long-standing anteroposterior and femoral lateral radiographs of 50 lower limbs in 50 Chinese OA patients were included. Sagittal femoral bowing angle (sFBA), angle between femoral distal anterior cortex axis and sagittal mechanical axis (DACSMA), angle between femoral distal anterior cortex axis and sagittal distal anatomic axis (DACSDAA), and angle between femoral sagittal mechanical axis and sagittal distal anatomic axis (SMADAA) were measured ...
A new technique in oblique incomplete high tibial osteotomy that permits an increase of valgus correction while preventing fracture of the medial cortex was investigated. Closing wedge or opening wedge osteotomy was done on 23 tibias from cadavers before loading in an Instron testing machine. In seven specimens (Group 1), lateral oblique wedge osteotomy was done. In seven other specimens (Group 2), one medial oblique cut was made. In both groups, the osteotomy terminated 10 mm from the cortex and approximately 2 cm below the plateau. In nine specimens (Group 3), the osteotomy terminated in a 5-mm diameter hole, drilled in an anteroposterior direction, with its center positioned 10 mm from the medial cortex and 2 cm below the articular surface. The maximum angle of opening or closing before fracture of the cortex took place was recorded. In Groups 1 and 2, similar maximum correction angles were observed, 6.7 degrees versus 6.5 degrees, respectively. In Group 3, the stress relieving hole allowed ...

BACKGROUND: Accelerated rehabilitation protocols for medial opening wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOW HTO) using intraosseous implants have not previously been described. The present study provides early clinical and radiological outcomes of MOW HTO using a polyetheretherketone (PEEK) intraosseous system, in combination with an early weight-bearing protocol.. METHODS: Twenty consecutive knees (17 patients) underwent navigated MOW HTO using a PEEK implant with accelerated rehabilitation. Time to union and maintenance of correction were assessed radiographically for 12 months post-operative. Patient outcomes were monitored for a mean follow-up of 38 months (range 23-42) using standardised instruments (WOMAC, IKDC and Lysholm scores).. RESULTS: All knees were corrected to valgus. The mean time to unassisted weight-bearing was 55 days (SD 24, range 21-106). Bone union occurred in 95% of knees by 6 months, with correction maintained for 15 knees at 12 months post-operative. Knees for which ...

The worldwide high tibial osteotomy (HTO) plates market demand is anticipated to witness healthy growth during the forecast period driven by growing predominance of orthopedic conditions including arthritis, bursitis and fractures.
A high tibial osteotomy is generally considered a method of prolonging the time before a knee replacement is necessary because the benefits typically fade after eight to ten years. This procedure is typically reserved for younger patients.
During a high tibial osteotomy, surgeons remove a small wedge of bone from just below the knee. This realignment will help transfer the weight on the knee
Background In a typical osteoarthritic knee with varus deformity, distal femoral resection based off the worn medial femoral condyle may result in an elevated joint line. In a setting of fixed flexion contracture, the surgeon may choose to resect additional distal femur to obtain extension, thus purposefully raising the joint line. However, the biomechanical effect of raising the joint line is not well recognized.. Questions/purposes (1) What is the effect of the level of the medial joint line (restored versus raised) on coronal plane stability of a TKA? (2) Does coronal alignment technique (mechanical axis versus kinematic technique) affect coronal plane stability of the knee? (3) Can the effect of medial joint-line elevation on coronal plane laxity be predicted by an analytical model?. Methods A TKA prosthesis was implanted in 10 fresh frozen nonarthritic cadaveric knees with restoration of the medial joint line at its original level (TKA0). Coronal plane stability was measured at 0°, 30°, ...
Many different fixation devices are used to maintain the correction angle after medial open wedge high tibial osteotomy (MOWHTO). Each device must provide at least sufficient mechanical stability to avoid loss of correction and unwanted fracture of the contralateral cortex until the bone heals. In the present study, the mechanical stability of following different implants was compared: the TomoFix small stature (sm), the TomoFix standard (std), the Contour Lock, the iBalance and the second generation PEEKPower. Simplified loading, usually consisting of a vertical load applied to the tibia plateau, is used for experimental testing of fixation devices and also in numerical studies. Therefore, this study additionally compared this simplified experimental loading with a more realistic loading that includes the muscle forces. Two types of finite element models, according to the considered loading, were created. The first type numerically simulated the static tests of MOWHTO implants performed in ...

Various risk factors influencing the success of Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) have been studied.. Today age, gender, primary or revision surgery, comorbidities and baseline characteristics are known to influence the health-related quality of life after TKA.. It is thought, that accurate mechanical alignment and ligament balance ensure optimal kinematic performance and wear, which in turn improves long-term outcome.. During preparation of the bone for the implantation of the knee prosthesis, numerous cuts are performed. Traditionally mechanical adjusted jigs are used to accurately align and position the instruments.. Since this alignment process is a source for deviation even in experienced surgeons, several navigation systems were developed. Using these systems, the surgeon is guided in the location of the instruments with the help of a computer.. Several studies could show that the use of such a navigation system leads to an improved execution of planned axis relations, as measured on the ...

Mr Sean OLeary performs high tibial osteotomy in Berkshire and Oxfordshire. He also offers treatment for osteonecrosis, osteochondritis dissecans and gonarthrosis.
Most of the incomplete stress fractures heal with conservative measures. But, in order to prevent recurrence of fractures due to the persistence of abnormal stresses, deformity correction is necessary. This can be done by a high tibial osteotomy or a total knee replacement arthroplasty. Once the fracture has progressed to the stage of non-union, the treatment becomes difficult and operative intervention becomes necessary at this stage.. The ideal treatment described for such cases is by using a modular total knee arthroplasty that corrects the malalignment at the knee joint and converts the tension stresses across the proximal tibia into compression forces. The use of a modular prosthesis allows the tibial stem to be extended across the fracture that acts as an intramedullary splint to provide stability.5 The advantage of such a procedure is that only a single stage surgery is required for fracture union as well as for prevention of recurrence. Intramedullary nailing can also be used to ...

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 ...
Fortunately, researchers are finding now that long-leg plasma exhaust channels (or divertors) may provide the solution needed for fusion power plants. 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 ...
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 ...

A two dimensional image is registered with mechanical axis data, and possibly other data, using a surgical navigation system. This provides the user with additional graphical information on a display screen as the procedure is performed. The mechanical axis data can be generated using an anatomical assessment.
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.
