Biomechanics of the ankle.

Orthop Trauma 2016 Jun;30(3):232-238

University Academic Fellow, Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK. Conflicts of interest: none declared.

This paper provides an introduction to the biomechanics of the ankle, introducing the bony anatomy involved in motion of the foot and ankle. The complexity of the ankle anatomy has a significant influence on the biomechanical performance of the joint, and this paper discusses the motions of the ankle joint complex, and the joints at which it is proposed they occur. It provides insight into the ligaments that are critical to the stability and function of the ankle joint. Read More

The multidisciplinary management of hip fractures in older patients.

Orthop Trauma 2016 Apr;30(2):117-122

Speciality Registrar in Trauma and Orthopaedics, STMTI-Wellcome Trust Clinical Fellow, Regenerative Medicine Group, Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Medicine Programme, University of Aberdeen, Institute of Medical Sciences, Foresterhill, UK. Conflict of interest: none declared.

Older patients presenting with hip fractures are some of the frailest and sickest patients in hospital. In addition to complex medical problems and comorbidities, they have to overcome the additional physiological challenges posed by the hip fracture itself, and subsequent surgery. Hip fracture associated morbidity and mortality at one year remains high. Read More

(v) Simulation and measurement of wear in metal-on-metal bearings in vitro- understanding the reasons for increased wear.

Orthop Trauma 2012 Aug;26(4):253-258

Professor, Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering iMBE, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK and Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit, Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust, Leeds, UK.

A new Stratified Approach For Enhanced Reliability (SAFER) pre-clinical simulation testing of joint prostheses has been described in a preceding paper in this volume. The application of SAFER in vitro simulation and testing to metal-on-metal bearings is described in this review paper. The review aims to provide further understanding of the reasons for, and causes of, increased wear in metal-on-metal hips in a proportion of patients. Read More

(iv) Enhancing the safety and reliability of joint replacement implants.

Orthop Trauma 2012 Aug;26(4):246-252

Principal Research and Innovation Fellow, Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering iMBE, University of Leeds, Leeds, UK and Leeds Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit, Leeds Teaching Hospital Trust, Leeds, UK. Conflict of interest: none.

A new Stratified Approach For Enhanced Reliability (SAFER) pre-clinical simulation testing of joint prostheses is presented in this article. The aim of this approach is preclinical systematic testing of wear performance in the much wider envelope of conditions found clinically rather than relying only on the standard testing conditions that are currently used. The approach includes variations in surgical delivery, variations in kinematics, variations in the patient population and degradation of the biomaterial properties. Read More
