This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of implant placement with robotic-arm assisted total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH).


The study analyzed a consecutive series of 69 patients who underwent robotic-arm assisted THA between September 2018 and December 2019. Of these, 30 patients had DDH and were classified according to the Crowe type. Acetabular component alignment and 3D positions were measured using pre- and postoperative CT data. The absolute differences of cup alignment and 3D position were compared between DDH and non-DDH patients. Moreover, these differences were analyzed in relation to the severity of DDH. The discrepancy of leg length and combined offset compared with contralateral hip were measured.

The aim of this study was to compare the post-operative radiographic and clinical outcomes between kinematically and mechanically aligned total knee arthroplasties (TKAs).

Patients and Methods

A total of 60 TKAs (30 kinematically and 30 mechanically aligned) were performed in 60 patients with varus osteoarthritis of the knee using a navigation system. The angles of orientation of the joint line in relation to the floor, the conventional and true mechanical axis (tMA) (the line from the centre of the hip to the lowest point of the calcaneus) were compared, one year post-operatively, on single-leg and double-leg standing long leg radiographs between the groups. The range of movement and 2011 Knee Society Scores were also compared between the groups at that time.

We treated 31 patients aged 65 years or more with cervical spondylotic myelopathy by microsurgical decompression and fusion at a single most appropriate level, in spite of MRI evidence of compression at several levels. Spinal cord potentials evoked at operation localised the level responsible for the principal lesion at C3-4 in 18 patients, C4-5 in 11 and at C5-6 in two. Despite the frequent coexistence of other age-related conditions, impairing ability to walk, the average Nurick grade improved from 3.5 before operation to 2.2 at a mean follow-up of 48 months. There was also good recovery of finger dexterity and sensitivity.

Operation at a single optimal level, as opposed to several, has the advantage of minimising complications, of particular importance in this age group.
