Prior unilateral total hip arthroplasty does not influence the outcome of ipsilateral total knee arthroplasty

Several studies have reported that the implantation of a total hip arthroplasty (THA) may lead to an overload on the knees [ 19 , 22 ], while other authors reported that there was no increase in biomechanics loads during gait on the contralateral …

Superior clavicle drilling points and fluoroscopic inclination for anatomic coracoclavicular ligament reconstruction: a cadaveric study

Acromioclavicular (AC) joint separations are common injuries [ 7 , 17 , 18 ] and many surgical procedures have been described [ 1 , 3 , 5 , 14 , 19 , 27 ]. Recent studies have demonstrated a better biomechanical profile for anatomic reconstruction …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Few other areas of orthopedic surgery and traumatology have undergone such a dramatic evolution in the last 10 years as knee surgery, arthroscopy and sports traumatology. Ranked among the top 33% of journals in both Orthopedics and Sports Sciences, the goal of this European journal is to publish papers about innovative knee surgery, sports trauma surgery and arthroscopy. Each issue features a series of peer-reviewed articles that deal with diagnosis and management and with basic research. Each issue also contains at least one review article about an important clinical problem. Case presentations or short notes about technical innovations are also accepted for publication.

The articles cover all aspects of knee surgery and all types of sports trauma; in addition, epidemiology, diagnosis, treatment and prevention, and all types of arthroscopy (not only the knee but also the shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, ankle, etc.) are addressed. Articles on new diagnostic techniques such as MRI and ultrasound and high-quality articles about the biomechanics of joints, muscles and tendons are included. Although this is largely a clinical journal, it is also open to basic research with clinical relevance.

Because the journal is supported by a distinguished European Editorial Board, assisted by an international Advisory Board, you can be assured that the journal maintains the highest standards.

Official Clinical Journal of the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy (ESSKA).
