1. Mechanical Properties of Articular Cartilage in Knees with Unicompartmental Osteoarthritis
We studied the mechanical properties of cartilage from the apparently unaffected compartment of knees with unicompartmental osteoarthritis (OA). Plugs of cartilage and subchondral bone, 8 mm in diameter, were obtained from the tibial plateau of seven patients treated by total knee replacement. Control specimens were obtained from eight cadaver knees of similar age.

2. Patella Complications In Total Knee Arthroplasty
This is a retrospective study, which was carried out on patients who under went total knee arthroplasties, with or without patella resurfacing over a seven-year period. The numbers of knees reviewed were 177 knees in 150 patients.
