Ten-year patient-reported outcomes following total and minimally invasive unicompartmental knee arthroplasty: a propensity score-matched cohort analysis

Purpose For patients with medial compartment arthritis who have failed non-operative treatment, either a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) can be undertaken. This analysis considers how the choice between UKA and TKA affects long-term patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs). Methods The Knee Arthroplasty Trial (KAT) and a cohort of...

Optimum stem length for mitigation of periprosthetic fracture risk following primary total knee arthroplasty: a finite element study

Purpose Due to age-related changes to the material properties and thinning of the cortical bone structure, older patients with osteoporosis may be at greater risk of femoral fracture following total knee arthroplasty. This study investigates whether there is a potential role for stemmed prostheses in such scenarios to help mitigate peri-implant fracture risk, and if so what...

Cohen’s MRI scoring system has limited value in predicting return to play

Purpose Numerous authors have hypothesised that MRI scoring systems provide a valid means of predicting return to play duration following an acute hamstring muscle strain. The purpose is to prospectively investigate the predictive value of the MRI scoring system of Cohen for return to sport (RTS), following an acute hamstring injury. Methods Male football (soccer) players (n...

Flexing and downsizing the femoral component is not detrimental to patellofemoral biomechanics in posterior-referencing cruciate-retaining total knee arthroplasty

PurposeWhen downsizing the femoral component to prevent mediolateral overhang, notching of the anterior femoral cortex may occur, which could be solved by flexing the femoral component. In this study, we investigated the effect of flexion of the femoral component on patellar tendon moment arm, patellofemoral forces and kinematics in posterior-referencing CR-TKA. Our hypothesis...

The Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT) in the Dutch population with and without complaints of ankle instability

Purpose To develop a translated Dutch version of the Cumberland Ankle Instability Tool (CAIT) and test its psychometric properties in a Dutch population with foot and ankle complaints. Methods The CAIT was translated into the Dutch language using a forward–backward translation design. Of the 130 subsequent patients visiting the outpatient clinic for foot and ankle complaints who...

Reliability and validation of the Dutch Achilles tendon Total Rupture Score

Purpose Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) have become a cornerstone for the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment. The Achilles tendon Total Rupture Score (ATRS) is a PROM for outcome and assessment of an Achilles tendon rupture. The aim of this study was to translate the ATRS to Dutch and evaluate its reliability and validity in the Dutch population. Methods A...
