Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Hamamatsu University School of Medicine, 1-20-1 Handayama, Higashiku, Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, 431-3192, Japan.

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common disease of joints that is more common in females than in males. It is characterized by severe knee degeneration, damaged cartilage and appearance of osteophytes. Hip geometry and morphometric parameters in the knee joint vary between the sexes and depend on the severity of OA and the presence of osteophytes. Read More

Medial Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty Restores Native Knee Kinematics During Activities of Daily Living: A Pilot Study.

Ann Biomed Eng 2022 Jul 19. Epub 2022 Jul 19.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Orthopaedic Biodynamics Laboratory, University of Pittsburgh, 3820 South Water Street, Pittsburgh, PA, 15206, USA.

The ability of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) to restore native knee kinematics during activities of daily living remains unclear. The objectives of this prospective study were to identify changes in knee kinematics after medial UKA (mUKA) and to determine if mUKA restores native knee kinematics during activities of daily living. We hypothesized that kinematics are different between the mUKA knee and contralateral knee before surgery, that mUKA restores native knee kinematics, and that mUKA does not affect lateral compartment dynamic joint space.

Arithmetic hip-knee-ankle angle and stressed hip-knee-ankle angle: equivalent methods for estimating constitutional lower limb alignment in kinematically aligned total knee arthroplasty.

Knee Surg Sports Traumatol Arthrosc 2022 Jul 11. Epub 2022 Jul 11.

CPAK Research Group, Sydney, Australia.

Purpose: Kinematically aligned total knee arthroplasty (KA TKA) relies on precise determination of constitutional alignment to set resection targets. The arithmetic hip-knee-ankle angle (aHKA) is a radiographic method to estimate constitutional alignment following onset of arthritis. Intraoperatively, constitutional alignment may also be approximated using navigation-based angular measurements of deformity correction, termed the stressed HKA (sHKA). Read More

Editorial Commentary: An Inverted V-Shaped High Tibial Osteotomy Combining a Lateral Closing Wedge and Medial Opening Wedge May Have Advantages.

Chris Servant

Arthroscopy 2022 06;38(6):1966-1968

High tibial osteotomy (HTO) is enjoying somewhat of a resurgence as a treatment for medial compartment arthritis with a varus deformity. An inverted V-shaped high tibial osteotomy (IVHTO), which is essentially a combined lateral closing-wedge high tibial osteotomy (CWHTO) and medial opening-wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO), has some theoretical benefits over more conventional techniques. This also has been termed a combined HTO or a hemi-wedge osteotomy. Read More

Modulation of internal tissue stresses of the knee via control of variable-stiffness properties in a 3D-printed footwear: A combined experimental and finite element analysis.

Med Eng Phys 2022 06 14;104:103800. Epub 2022 Apr 14.

Department of Orthopaedics, Huashan Hospital affiliated to Fudan University, 12 Middle Wulumuqi Road, Shanghai, China.

Does a lateral tibial plateau fracture (Takeuchi type III) occuring during opening wedge high tibial osteotomy induce a higher revision rate to total knee arthroplasty.

Acta Biomed 2022 03 10;92(S3):e2021558. Epub 2022 Mar 10.


Background And Aim: High tibial osteotomies (HTO) are effective procedures to treat younger patients affected by moderate but symptomatic arthritis. Open-wedge HTO (OW-HTO) is more often performed compared to a closing wedge osteotomy to treat varus arthritis of the knee due to a lower incidence of complications and better results: lateral hinge fracture (LHF) is the most common complication of OW-HTO. Intra articular fractures of the lateral tibial plateau (Takeuchi type III) appear as a particularly serious complication due to its extension to the subchondral bone of the compartment towards which the load is shifted.

Lef1 ablation alleviates cartilage mineralization following posttraumatic osteoarthritis induction.

Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 2022 05 20;119(21):e2116855119. Epub 2022 May 20.

Institute of Biomedical and Oral Research, Faculty of Dental Medicine, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, 9112102 Israel.

Cartilage mineralization is a tightly controlled process, imperative for skeletal growth and fracture repair. However, in osteoarthritis (OA), cartilage mineralization may impact the joint range of motion, inflict pain, and increase chances for joint effusion. Here we attempt to understand the link between inflammation and cartilage mineralization by targeting Sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) and lymphoid enhancer binding factor 1 (LEF1), both reported to have contrasting effects on cartilage.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Beijing Jishuitan Hospital, Fourth Clinical College of Peking University, Beijing 100035, China. Electronic address:

Background: To the best of our knowledge, no report has analyzed the postoperative results of poor prosthesis position, particularly when the femoral and tibial components are abnormally positioned relative to neutral lower limb alignment. We aimed to investigate pressure distribution in the knee at different lower limb alignments with diverse positions of femoral and tibial components.

Methods: We established a three-dimensional model of the lower limb using computed tomography and simulated total knee arthroplasty. Read More

Biomechanical consequences of anterior root detachment of the lateral meniscus and its reinsertion.

Sci Rep 2022 04 13;12(1):6182. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Clinical Biomechanics of Andalucia Laboratory, University of Malaga, Malaga, Spain.

Treatment of posterior meniscal roots tears evolved after biomechanical evidence of increased pressures on the tibiofemoral cartilage produced by this lesion and the subsequent accelerated development of arthritis or osteonecrosis observed clinically. However, little is known about the consequences of the detachment of the anterior roots. This in-vitro study analyzes the biomechanical changes in the tibiofemoral joint caused by avulsion of the anterior root of the lateral meniscus. Read More

Are All Unloader Braces Created Equal? Recommendations for Evidence-Based Implementation of Unloader Braces for Patients with Unicompartmental Knee OA.

J Knee Surg 2022 Feb 24;35(3):249-254. Epub 2021 Dec 24.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Missouri Orthopedic Institute, University of Missouri, Columbia, Missouri.

Unicompartmental knee osteoarthritis (UKOA) is a complex issue that is estimated to affect roughly 28% of patients with knee OA, and can result in severe cartilage degeneration, meniscus deficiency, and concomitant varus or valgus malalignment. This malalignment results in abnormally high joint reaction forces in the affected compartment, which can elicit pain, cause dysfunction, and exacerbate joint degradation. For more than two decades, the use of knee unloader braces has been advocated as a cost-effective option for symptomatic management of UKOA. Read More
