Management of Extra-articular Deformity in the Setting of Total Knee Arthroplasty.

J Am Acad Orthop Surg 2019 Jan 7. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

From the Adult Reconstruction and Joint Replacement Service (Dr. Sculco), the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery (Dr. Kahlenberg), and Limb Lengthening and Complex Reconstruction Service (Dr. Fragomen and Dr. Rozbruch), Hospital for Special Surgery, New York, NY.

Extra-articular deformities of the femur and tibia in conjunction with advanced knee osteoarthritis pose unique challenges for the arthroplasty surgeon. Careful preoperative planning is needed to evaluate both the intra- and extra-articular deformities and to determine the best route to total knee arthroplasty. An intra-articular compensatory correction can typically be performed if the extra-articular deformity is distant from the joint or if preoperative templating shows that bony cuts do not interfere with ligamentous attachments.

The Anterolateral Ligament is Not the Whole Story: Reconsidering the Form and Function of the Anterolateral Knee and its Contribution to Rotatory Knee Instability.

Tech Orthop 2018 Dec 25;33(4):219-224. Epub 2017 Dec 25.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA.

The heterogeneity of available cadaveric, histologic, and radiographic results related to the anterolateral ligament (ALL) does not support its existence as a discrete anatomic structure. Moreover, focusing narrowly on the ALL in isolation, what has previously been referred to as "ALL myopia," obscures a thorough appreciation for the stability contributions of both capsular and extracapsular structures. We consider injury to the soft tissues of the anterolateral knee-the anterolateral complex-just one component of what is frequently found to be a spectrum of pathology observed in the rotationally unstable, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-deficient knee.

Effect of implementing magnetic resonance imaging for patient-specific OpenSim models on lower-body kinematics and knee ligament lengths.

J Biomech 2019 Jan 16;83:9-15. Epub 2018 Nov 16.

Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Ottawa, Canada; Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Electronic address:

Background: OpenSim models are typically based on cadaver findings that are generalized to represent a wide range of populations, which curbs their validity. Patient-specific modelling through incorporating magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) improves the model's biofidelity with respect to joint alignment and articulations, muscle wrapping, and ligament insertions. The purpose of this study was to determine if the inclusion of an MRI-based knee model would elicit differences in lower limb kinematics and resulting knee ligament lengths during a side cut task.

Understanding in vivo joint mechanics during dynamic activity is crucial for revealing mechanisms of injury and disease development. To this end, laboratories have utilized computed tomography (CT) to create 3-dimensional (3D) models of bone, which are then registered to high-speed biplanar radiographic data captured during movement in order to measure in vivo joint kinematics. In the present study, we describe a system for measuring dynamic joint mechanics using 3D surface models of the joint created from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) registered to high-speed biplanar radiographs using a novel automatic registration algorithm.

Smoothness of the knee joint movement during the stance phase in patients with severe knee osteoarthritis.

Asia Pac J Sports Med Arthrosc Rehabil Technol 2018 Oct 4;14:1-5. Epub 2018 Sep 4.

Department of Radiological Sciences, Ibaraki Prefectural University of Health Sciences, 4669-2 Ami-machi, Inashiki, Ibaraki, 300-0331, Japan.

Background: Patients with knee osteoarthritis can significantly affect the function of the knee joint in terms of joint range and mobility and have a stereotypical pattern of knee stiffness during gait, caused by an increased resistance in the muscles and soft tissues during the stance phase of knee joint movement. Smoothness in movement, such as during walking and running, is assumed to be attained by adulthood; however, disruptions in gait pattern due to injury or performance enhancement can alter the smoothness of the movement, and this is often quantified in terms of "jerk". A higher jerk value is linked with a decrease in smoothness. Read More

Prediction of Meniscal and Ligamentous Injuries in Lateral Tibial Plateau Fractures Based on Measurements of Lateral Plateau Widening on Multidetector Computed Tomography Scans.

Biomed Res Int 2018 29;2018:5353820. Epub 2018 Jul 29.

Department of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, Children's Hospital, Hamburg-Altona, Germany.

Background: The influence of increasing lateral plateau widening on the frequency of meniscal and ligamentous lesions in lateral tibial plateau fractures has been examined in very few studies using plain radiographs. Because the amount of this parameter cannot be measured accurately on plain radiographs, the purpose of this survey was to look for a possible correlation between the extent of lateral plateau widening, as measured on multidetector CT (MDCT) scans, and different soft-tissue injuries determined from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Materials And Methods: 55 patients with a lateral tibial plateau fracture were included in this retrospective case series. Read More

Distal Tibial Intramedullary Nailing Using an Extraarticular, Lateral Parapatellar Approach in the Semiextended Position.

J Orthop Trauma 2018 Aug;32 Suppl 1:S34-S35

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Washington University in Saint Louis, Saint Louis, MO.

Semiextended positioning can improve the surgeon's ability to obtain, maintain, and fluoroscopically evaluate a fracture reduction when performing fixation with an intramedullary nail, especially in fractures at the proximal and distal ends. Furthermore, this position allows for evaluation of instrument placement, including the start point, without moving the fluoroscopic unit into extremes of angulation or compromising the quality of the beam orientation. The intraarticular suprapatellar approach has been described as a soft tissue approach to maintain the leg in a position that would not complicate management of these fractures, especially those in the proximal third of the tibia.
