  • Component sizing in total knee arthroplasty: patient-specific guides vs. computer-assisted navigation.

    Biomedizinische Technik. Biomedical engineering 2012 Aug

    Authors: Yaffe MA, Patel A, Mc Coy BW, Luo M, Cayo M, Ghate R, Stulberg SD
    Abstract
    Patient-specific guides (PSG) and computer-assisted navigation (CAN) are technologies that have been developed to improve the accuracy and reproducibility of total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The purpose of this study is to compare the methodology by which a PSG system and an intraoperative navigation system (CAN) perform an anatomical registration and correctly predict femoral component size in TKA.
    One hundred and eleven PSG TKA were performed, 30 of which were concurrently evaluated with CAN. PSG-predicted and CAN-predicted femoral component size were compared with the actual component selection. The process by which PSG and CAN determines component sizing was evaluated.
    The PSG system was both more accurate and more precise than the CAN navigation system in predicting femoral component size in TKA.
    In this study, the surgeon's final component selection was more likely to be in accordance with the PSG rather than the CAN sizing algorithm. This study suggests that intraoperative surface registration may not be as accurate as preoperative three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging reconstructions for establishing optimal femoral component sizing.

    Abstract
    Aseptic osteolysis has been the single most important factor limiting the longevity of a THA. A great deal of attention has been focused on the development of implants and materials that minimize the development of osteolysis. The monoblock porous tantalum acetabular cup was designed to minimize osteolysis, but whether it does so is unclear.
    We evaluated the incidence of osteolytic lesions after THA using a monoblock porous tantalum acetabular component.
    We retrospectively reviewed 51 patients who had a THA using a monoblock porous tantalum acetabular cup. At a minimum of 9.6 years postoperatively (average, 10.3 years; SD, 0.2 years; range, 9.6-10.8 years), a helical CT scan of the pelvis using a metal suppression protocol was obtained. This scan was evaluated for the presence of osteolysis.
    We found no evidence of osteolysis on CT scan at an average of 10.3 years.
    Osteolysis appears not to be a major problem at 10 years with this monoblock porous tantalum acetabular component, but longer term followup will be required to determine whether these findings persist.

  • Posterior approach: back door in.

    Abstract
    Minimally invasive THA is a controversial topic in adult reconstruction. While early reports championed this new technique for faster return of function, decreased hospital stay, and less pain, these findings are being questioned. More recent reports have highlighted increased complication rates during the surgeon's learning curve and noted a lack of benefit compared with a standard incision. This article describes the senior author's technique for a minimally invasive posterior approach and emphasizes the importance of patient selection and a team approach. The size of the incision should never dictate the quality of the THA nor place the long-term results at risk. Incision length and degree of visualization are dictated by the needs of the specific surgeon as well as the patient's morphology. In appropriate patients, using a team approach and the described minimally invasive posterior approach can lead to a shortened hospital stay and rapid functional recovery without increasing the risk of complications.
