Dr. Incavo and Colleagues Continue to Contribute to Total Joint Replacement Research and Literature with Significant Findings
The results of research projects conducted by Dr. Incavo and colleagues and focused on total joint arthroplasty were recently published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal, Texas Orthopaedic Journal.
The article, Avascular Necrosis of the Patella Following Patellofemoral Arthroplasty, published in the Texas Orthopaedic Journal, reports on a case of avascular necrosis of the patella following patellofemoral arthroplasty.
The case involves a 65-year-old woman who presented to the orthopedic clinic with longstanding bilateral knee pain localized to the anterior aspect of her knees. The pain was moderate to severe and worsened with prolonged standing and going up and down stairs. She denied any feeling of instability, catching, or locking. Prior treatments included injections, physical therapy, activity modification, and anti-inflammatory medications. She received minimal symptomatic relief with these treatment modalities.
