Volume 6, Issue 2 , March 2018, Pages 100-104

  Background: Various sizes of implants need to be available during surgery. The purpose of this paper is to comparebody height and shoe size with implant sizes in patients who underwent total knee replacement surgery to see whichbiomarker is a better predictor for preoperative planning to determine implant ...  Read More

4. The Stabilising Effect of the Anterior Oblique Ligament to Prevent Directional Subluxation at the Trapeziometacarpal Joint of the Thumb: A Biomechanical Cadaveric Study

Mark R. McCann; Philippa A. Rust; Robert Wallace

Volume 6, Issue 2 , March 2018, Pages 105-111

  Background: The trapeziometacarpal joint (TMCJ) is inherently unstable, relying on ligament restraint to preventsubluxation. Subluxation of the thumb in a dorsoradial direction is often observed in clinical practice, either after acuteligament injury or more commonly with osteoarthritis (OA). This subluxation ...  Read More

Spyridon P. Galanakos; Andreas F. Mavrogenis; Christos Vottis; George A. Macheras; Ioannis Ignatiadis

Volume 6, Issue 2 , March 2018, Pages 140-145

  In microsurgical nerve repair, the epineural sleeve technique can be used to bridge short nerve defects and to coverthe coaptation site with the epineurium of the nerve stump. The epineurium serves as a mechanical aid to reducegap size, and increase repair strength, effectively assisting nerve regeneration.This ...  Read More
