Comparison of survival rate and risk of revision for mobile-bearing and fixed-bearing total knee replacements.
CONCLUSION: No differences were found in the cumulative survival rates between MB and FB TKRs. MB TKRs were associated with a lower risk of revision due to aseptic loosening in comparison with FB TKRs. MB inserts represented a significant risk factor only for early revisions due to instability. PMID: 31291852 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Eklem Hastaliklari ve Cerrahisi)

The positive impact of platelet-derived growth factor on the repair of full-thickness defects of articular cartilage.
This study aims to investigate the potential use and histological effects of the local administration of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) in the repair of full-thickness osteochondral defects in articular cartilage in an animal model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-four adolescent 18-week-old New Zealand White rabbits with an average weight of 2500 g (range, 1600 g to 3200 g) were used in the study. The rabbits were randomly divided into three groups (n=8) as the control group (group A) and two experimental groups (groups B and C). Defects of cylindrical full-thickness (3.5 mm wide, 4 mm deep) were created in the w...

Localized pigmented villonodular synovitis with hemorrhage arising from lateral meniscocapsular junction: A case report.
Authors: Kim H, Shin DC, Lee KS, Jang IT, Lee K Abstract Pigmented villonodular synovitis (PVNS) is a benign tumorous condition commonly found in tendon sheathes, bursa, or joint synovium. Unlike the diffuse type which invades the entire synovium of the affected joint, synovium of localized PVNS shows relatively normal appearance. It presents nonspecific symptoms and typically progresses for a long time but acute locking phenomenon or internal derangement of knee symptoms suddenly commence in early stage. In this article, we present a 48-year-old female patient with well-capsulated localized PVNS with intra-capsula...
