      CURRENT RESEARCH

      Cartilage Integrity in the Lateral and Patello-Femoral Compartments of Varus Knees
      Dushey C, Boettner F, Hass S

      • This study investigates the integrity of cartilage in the lateral and patello-femoral compartments of varus knees.  The integrity of this cartilage is a key factor in the surgical decision to proceed with either uni-condylar or total knee replacement.  X-rays, MRIs and biomechanical testing will be used to determine which parameters best predict ultimate cartilage integrity.

      Total Knee Arthroplasty in Patients Younger Than Thirty Years
      Dushey C, Figgie M

      • This study examines the preoperative diagnoses and post-operative outcomes of patients under thirty years of age undergoing total knee arthroplasty.  Special attention is paid to those patients with a preoperative diagnosis of failed ACL reconstruction.

      Short-term Complications Following TKA: A CERT Database Study
      Dushey C, Alexiades M, Westrich G

      • This study documents all medical and implant related complications occurring within the first six months following TKA, to determine the rates of individual complications and predisposing risk factors.
