Cartilage Integrity in the Lateral and Patello-Femoral Compartments of Varus Knees Dushey C, Boettner F, Hass S
This study investigates the integrity of cartilage in the lateral and patello-femoral compartments of varus knees. The integrity of this cartilage is a key factor in the surgical decision to proceed with either uni-condylar or total knee replacement. X-rays, MRIs and biomechanical testing will be used to determine which parameters best predict ultimate cartilage integrity.
Dr. Dushey has been engaged in scientific research for the past 14 years, participating in projects at the Hospital for Special Surgery, Yale University, and Mount Sinai Hospital. He is currently investigating the durability of knee replacements in young patients and patient decision-making before hip replacement.
