DePuy Synthes has announced the launch of its Fibulink syndesmosis repair system for patients with traumatic ankle injuries, according to a press release.
Mid-term data show that today’s dual mobility constructs can provide excellent stability and range of motion in primary and revision total hip arthroplasty when patients are at a higher risk for dislocation. Modern implant designs have successfully mitigated several major failure mechanisms in older systems.
Disparities in unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) have been well-documented, with lower utilization and higher complication rates found among African American patients. Less is known, however, about whether these racial variations are seen with same-day bilateral TKA as well. In a study presented at ACR Convergence 2020...

Your child comes home from a game, practice or the playground and is limping and complaining about ankle pain. Could something be sprained, strained or —even worse — broken?
Autologous chondrocyte implantation in the knee: M-ACI has comparable benefit to therapy alternative
Autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI) has been used in adults with deep cartilage defects for over 30 years and has been further developed and modified over time. For the most recent procedure, matrix-induced ACI (M-ACI), favorable effects have been shown suggesting that the benefits are at least comparable to those of therapy alternatives.
