A Cam-Post Mechanism Is No Longer Necessary in Modern Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty.

J Knee Surg 2019 Aug 1;32(8):710-713. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida.

Conclusive evidence supporting a clinical difference between posterior-stabilized (PS) and cruciate-retaining (CR) designs in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) does not currently exist, despite both designs being used for decades. Proponents of PS designs that employ a cam-and-post mechanism cite in vivo fluoroscopic data that demonstrate improved posterior rollback; however, optimal rollback has never been correlated to superior clinical outcomes. Recently, anterior-lipped and more conforming CR bearings, such as ultracongruent, medial pivot, and dual-pivot designs, have been used to substitute for the posterior cruciate ligament and obviate the need for the cam-post mechanism of a traditional PS design.

[Bony knee injuries in childhood and adolescence].

Unfallchirurg 2019 Jan;122(1):6-16

Unfallchirurgische Abteilung, Landeskrankenhaus Horn, Spitalgasse 10, 3580, Horn, Österreich.

While fractures around the knee are known to be rare, physicians have encountered a rise in the frequency due to the increased participation of children and adolescents in high-impact sports at a younger age. Even if the treatment of fractures in some cases resembles that in adults, the diagnostics and treatment in childhood and adolescence require a hígh level of experience in order avoid possible sequelae and to enable early recognition. Thorough diagnostics using clinical and imaging investigations as well as a precise weighing up of the treatment are essential to minimize differences in leg length and axial malpositioning of the leg.

[Reduction techniques in intramedullary nailing osteosynthesis].

Unfallchirurg 2019 Feb;122(2):95-102

Zentrum für Orthopädie und Unfallchirurgie, Universitätsmedizin der Johannes Gutenberg-Universität, Langenbeckstr. 1, 55131, Mainz, Deutschland.

Intramedullary nailing was originally conceived for the stabilization of shaft fractures of long bones. Due to new nail designs and multiple interlocking possibilities, the spectrum of nailing has significantly increased. Nailing of fractures beyond the isthmus is technically challenging because fractures need to be reduced before the nailing procedure starts. Read More
