A consensus-based approach to evidence-based clinical practice

Clinical dentistry is a difficult topic because little is either black or white; instead there are many, many grey areas. Practitioners and dental students know that if you present a case to 6 different dentists you will probably generate six different treatment plans, five of which will be similar and one will likely be radically different. Therefore, it is understandable to search for guidelines that are based on sound science. The modern way is to look for reproducible Scientific Evidence (Evidence Based Dentistry).

ConclusionThe similarity between osteotomy planes predicted using theSignature system and osteotomy planes actually achieved was excellent for the tibia although some discrepancies were seen for the femur. The use of 3D system techniques in TKA surgery can provide accurate intraoperative guidance, especially for patients with deformed bone, tailored to individual patients and ensure better placement of the implant.

This study attempts to quantify the effect of sequential needle puncturing of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) using a pressure sensor insert (Verasense by OrthoSensor) and gap measurement under tension.MethodsCruciate-retaining arthroplasties were placed in 14 cadaveric knees. The MCL was elongated by step-wise perforation, in five sets of five perforations, with the use of an 18-gauge needle, followed by valgus stress. Following the fifth set of needle perforations, blade perforation was performed on the remaining tense fibers of the MCL. Following each step-wise perforation, corresponding medial compartment pressure...

ConclusionBCS TKA has a wide acceptable range of posterior tibial slope for avoiding knee instability if the posterior tibial slope is less than 10 °. Surgeons should prioritize avoiding adverse effects over trying to achieve positive effects such as decreasing patellofemoral contact force and quadriceps force by increasing posterior tibial slope. Our study helps surgeons determine the optimal posterior tibial slope during surgery with BCS TKA ; posterior tibial slope should not exceed 10° in routine clinical practice.
