A direct referencing method of the tibial plateau for the posterior tibial slope in medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty.

J Orthop Surg Res 2022 Jun 25;17(1):329. Epub 2022 Jun 25.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Kindai University Hospital, 377-2 Ohno-Higashi, Osaka-Sayama City, Osaka, 589-8511, Japan.

Deep collaborative network with alpha matte for precise knee tissue segmentation from MRI.

Comput Methods Programs Biomed 2022 Jun 17;222:106963. Epub 2022 Jun 17.

Department of Imaging and Interventional Radiology, CU lab of AI in radiology (CLAIR), Chinese University of Hong Kong, Prince of Wales Hospital, Shatin N.T., Hong Kong, China. Electronic address:

Evaluation of Anterior Coverage in Children With Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip Using Transverse Magnetic Resonance Imaging at 2 Years Is Predictive of Future Radiographic Coverage.

J Pediatr Orthop 2022 Jun 27. Epub 2022 Jun 27.

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, University of Tsukuba (Tsukuba Paediatric Orthopaedic Group).

Background: Although normal anterior acetabular coverage provides stability to the hip, acetabular retroversion leads to femoroacetabular impingement related to hip osteoarthritis. Previous studies have focused on acetabular version and anteroposterior coverage in children with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH); however, the correlation between anteroposterior coverage and acetabular development is unclear. We measured anteroposterior acetabular coverage in DDH patients using transverse magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and subsequent bony acetabular growth, and evaluated the correlation of those findings.
