Do Porous Tantalum Implants Help Preserve Bone?: Evaluation of Tibial Bone Density Surrounding Tantalum Tibial Implants in TKA

Alicia K. Harrison MD, Terence J. Gioe MD, Christine Simonelli MD, Penny J. Tatman MPH, Mary C. Schoeller RT(R), CDT

TKA with conventional metal-backed tibial implants subjects the tibial metaphysis to stress shielding, with resultant loss of bone density.

Quadriceps and Hamstrings Muscle Dysfunction after Total Knee Arthroplasty

Jennifer E. Stevens-Lapsley PT, MPT, PhD, Jaclyn E. Balter MS, Wendy M. Kohrt PhD, Donald G. Eckhoff MD

Although TKA reliably reduces pain from knee osteoarthritis, full recovery of muscle strength and physical function to normal levels is rare. We presumed that a better understanding of acute changes in hamstrings and quadriceps muscle performance would allow us to enhance early rehabilitation after TKA and improve long-term function.
