In long bones, the most common site for metastases is the proximal femur. For lesions involving this region, osteosynthetic devices frequently fail, and for this reason, endoprosthetic reconstruction may be the optimal choice for treatment. Here, we present a series of 44 patients in whom 45 endoprosthetic reconstructions were performed ...

Animal studies have shown that implanted anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafts initially undergo a process of revascularisation prior to remodelling, ultimately increasing mechanical strength. We investigated whether minimal debridement of the intercondylar notch and the residual stump of the ruptured ACL leads to earlier revascularisation in ACL reconstruction in humans. ...

BACKGROUND: Although recent studies have shown intermediate-term success of both meniscal allograft transplantation (MAT) and autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) performed separately, there have been no peer-reviewed studies focused prospectively on the combined procedure. By potentially reestablishing a compartment contact area closer to normal, MAT may allow a more optimal environment ...
