Complications associated with conjoined intramedullary pin placement for femorotibial
joint luxation in a Solomon Island eclectus parrot (Eclectus roratus solomonensis).
found no changes in WOMAC pain, joint stiffness, and physical function subscales between those wearing full-length lateral-wedge insoles and those wearing neutral-wedge insoles in patients with medial femorotibial knee OA in a 2-year prospective randomized controlled study .
At the 6-month assessment, the subtalar-strapped lateral-wedge insole group demonstrated significantly decreased femorotibial angles, improved VAS scores, and improved Lequesne index scores compared with their baseline assessments, while those who wore the traditional shoe-insert wedge insole did not demonstrate changes .
Specifically, if isolated grade III PCL injuries go on to medial femorotibial
and patellar chondrosis, would PCL reconstruction necessarily alter the course of events?
Instead, an insole that's fixed in place with subtalar strapping prevents the talus from moving and creates tension to correct the femorotibial
angle, he explained.
Change in femorotibial
cartilage volume and subregional cartilage thickness over 1 year-data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative Progression Sub-cohort.
Because results with valgus osteotomy for medial condyle involvement were best in those knees with a postoperative femorotibial
angle of 164[degrees] to 173[degrees] and 7[degrees] to 16[degrees] of anatomic valgus, Koshino recommended a goal of 10[degrees] of valgus.
A similar dose of glucosamine sulfate has also been shown, in two independent studies, to prevent the joint space narrowing observed at the femorotibial
compartment in patients with mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis.
CT-guided needle biopsy was taken from the femorotibial
joint and the lesion of the fibula.
Merchan EC, Galindo E: Arthroscope-guided surgery versus nonoperative treatment for limited degenerative osteoarthritis of the femorotibial
joint in patients over 50 years of age: a prospective comparative study.
angle and the lateral subluxation of the tibia on the femur were measured.
Even 7 to 19 years after osteotomy, a decrease of the ratio was noted in 16 knees with a standing femorotibial
angle (FTA) less than 168[degrees] (12[degrees] of anatomical valgus angulation).
