Is the contralateral tibia a reliable template for reconstruction:a three‑dimensional anatomy cadaveric study


Schenk, Pascal; Vlachopoulos, Lazaros; Hingsammer, Andreas M; Fucentese, Sandro F; Fürnstahl, Philipp (2016). Is the contralateral tibia a reliable template for reconstruction:a three‑dimensional anatomy cadaveric study. Knee Surgery, Sports Traumatology, Arthroscopy:Epub ahead of print.

Abstract

The contralateral anatomy is regularly used as a reconstruction template for corrective osteotomies of several deformities and pathological conditions. However, there is lack of evidence that the intra-individual differences between both tibiae are sufficiently small to use the contralateral tibia as a 3D reconstruction template for complex osteotomies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the intra-individual side differences of the tibia in length, torsion, angulation, and translation using 3D measurement techniques.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
