Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

     A study by Noble et al. (2005) concluded that patients who had TKA experience…

    • A.

      Substantial functional impairment when compared with their age and gender matched peers

    • B.

      Functional outcomes similar to that of their age and gender matched peers

    • C.

      Substantial functional improvement when compared with their age and gender matched peers

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    A. Substantial functional impairment when compared with their age and gender matched peers
    Explanation
    The study by Noble et al. (2005) found that patients who had TKA (total knee arthroplasty) experienced substantial functional impairment when compared with their age and gender matched peers. This suggests that TKA may not result in functional outcomes similar to that of their peers, and there is no evidence of substantial functional improvement. Therefore, the correct answer is "Substantial functional impairment when compared with their age and gender matched peers."

  • 2. 

    Which factors provide the rationale for a kinematic knee?

    • A.

      Conventional knee designs do not replicate the normal anatomy of the knee and thus they are unable to restore normal kinematics and muscular efficiency

    • B.

      Conventional knee designs do not provide the same levels of satisfaction and return to function as seen in THA

    • C.

      The prevalence of younger more demanding patients

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The rationale for a kinematic knee is provided by all of the factors mentioned. Conventional knee designs are unable to replicate the normal anatomy and kinematics of the knee, which can lead to decreased muscular efficiency. Additionally, these designs may not provide the same levels of satisfaction and return to function as seen in total hip arthroplasty (THA). The prevalence of younger and more demanding patients also contributes to the need for a kinematic knee that can better meet their functional requirements.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Satisfaction levels and return to functional activity following TKA are the same as that of THA

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Satisfaction levels and return to functional activity following TKA are the same as that of THA" is incorrect. TKA (Total Knee Arthroplasty) and THA (Total Hip Arthroplasty) are two different surgical procedures used to replace the knee and hip joints, respectively. While both procedures aim to improve function and reduce pain, the satisfaction levels and return to functional activity may vary between the two. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    In conventional knees which muscle group shows consistently greater muscular effort versus a non-operated leg?

    • A.

      Biceps

    • B.

      Hamstrings

    • C.

      Quadriceps

    • D.

      Gastrocnemius

    Correct Answer
    C. Quadriceps
    Explanation
    The quadriceps muscle group consistently shows greater muscular effort in conventional knees compared to a non-operated leg. This means that the quadriceps muscles are working harder in a knee that has undergone surgery or is affected by a knee condition. This increased effort may be due to the need to compensate for any weakness or instability in the knee joint, or to support the overall function and movement of the leg.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    A key characteristic to understand in relation to the native knee anatomy is that it is… 

    • A.

      Asymmetrical

    • B.

      Symmetrical

    • C.

      Dependent on individual anatomy

    • D.

      B & C

    Correct Answer
    A. Asymmetrical
    Explanation
    The native knee anatomy is asymmetrical, meaning that it is not the same on both sides. This is an important characteristic to understand because it can affect the function and movement of the knee joint. The asymmetry of the knee allows for different ranges of motion and stability in different directions, which is necessary for activities such as walking, running, and changing direction. Understanding this characteristic is crucial for healthcare professionals when diagnosing and treating knee-related conditions and injuries.

  • 6. 

    When reviewing the articular geometry of the tibia which of the following can be observed? Please check the correct box.

    • A.

      The lateral tibial condyle is concave in shape and the medial tibial condyle is convex in shape (no constraint on AP motion)

    • B.

      The medial tibial condyle is concave in shape and the lateral tibial condyle is convex in shape (no constraint on AP motion)

    Correct Answer
    B. The medial tibial condyle is concave in shape and the lateral tibial condyle is convex in shape (no constraint on AP motion)
    Explanation
    The correct answer states that the medial tibial condyle is concave in shape and the lateral tibial condyle is convex in shape. This means that the surface of the tibia on the inner side (medial) is curved inward, while the surface on the outer side (lateral) is curved outward. This is a characteristic of the articular geometry of the tibia. The answer also mentions that there is no constraint on AP (Anterior-Posterior) motion, meaning that the shape of the tibia does not restrict movement in the front-to-back direction.

      Oval

    • B.

      Flat

    • C.

      Round

    • D.

      Oblong

    Correct Answer
    C. Round
    Explanation
    The explanation for the correct answer is that the distal condylar radius of the medial condyle of the femur is described as having a "round" shape. This means that it is more circular in shape compared to the "flat" shape of the distal condylar radius of the lateral condyle.

    • A.

      Femur internally rotated 5° (achieved by ACL pull)

    • B.

      Femur externally rotated 5° (achieved by ACL pull)

    • C.

      Knee joint is more congruent and quadriceps activity is not required

    • D.

      Quadriceps activity increases utilized to stabilize the knee

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Femur internally rotated 5° (achieved by ACL pull)
    C. Knee joint is more congruent and quadriceps activity is not required
    Explanation
    In extension, the knee adopts the screw home position, which is a position of stability. This position is achieved by the femur internally rotating 5° due to the pull of the ACL. In this position, the knee joint becomes more congruent, meaning the surfaces of the femur and tibia fit together better, increasing stability. Additionally, in this position, quadriceps activity is not required as the knee is already stable.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    What paradoxical motion can occur as a result of conventional knee designs?

    • A.

      The lack of ACL function leads to paradoxical anterior sliding of the femur during flexion

    • B.

      During flexion the knee may pivot laterally, as opposed to the naturally occurring medial pivot

    • C.

      During flexion the knee may pivot medially, as opposed to the naturally occurring lateral pivot

    • D.

      A & B

    Correct Answer
    D. A & B
    Explanation
    The correct answer is A & B. Conventional knee designs can result in paradoxical motion, where the lack of ACL function leads to anterior sliding of the femur during flexion. Additionally, during flexion, the knee may pivot laterally instead of the naturally occurring medial pivot. Both of these motions can occur as a result of conventional knee designs.

    What did Luyckx et al (2010) suggest contributed to the ITB traction syndrome observed in some JBCS patients?

    • A.

      Inadequate translation of the femur in flexion leading to increased eccentric loading of the ITB in some patients

    • B.

      The normal screw home position of the JBCS which allowed the knee to rest in its normal anatomical position

    • C.

      Excessive translation of the femur in flexion leading to increased eccentric loading of the ITB in some patients

    • D.

      A & B

    Correct Answer
    C. Excessive translation of the femur in flexion leading to increased eccentric loading of the ITB in some patients
    Explanation
    Luyckx et al (2010) suggested that excessive translation of the femur in flexion leads to increased eccentric loading of the ITB in some JBCS patients. This means that when the femur moves too much in relation to the ITB during flexion of the knee, it puts extra strain on the ITB, which can contribute to ITB traction syndrome. The inadequate translation of the femur in flexion and the normal screw home position of the JBCS are not mentioned as factors contributing to ITB traction syndrome in this study. Therefore, the correct answer is excessive translation of the femur in flexion leading to increased eccentric loading of the ITB in some patients.

  • 25. 

    According to Ries et al (2010) which of the following tibial component issues contribute to increased tension in the ITB?

    • A.

      Aseptic loosening of the tibial component

    • B.

      Excessive external rotation of the tibial component

    • C.

      Excessive posterior position of the tibial component

    • D.

      B & C

    Correct Answer
    D. B & C
    Explanation
    Excessive external rotation and excessive posterior position of the tibial component both contribute to increased tension in the ITB. These issues can lead to abnormal biomechanics and alignment of the knee joint, causing the ITB to become tight and potentially leading to ITB syndrome. Aseptic loosening of the tibial component, on the other hand, does not directly contribute to increased tension in the ITB.

    Arnout et al (2011)3 reported on four cases (0.3%) of posterior dislocation of the tibia relative to the femur in a series of 1,350 JBCS cases. The authors concluded that consistent soft-tissue stretch occurred in these patients. Which factors were noted as potentially contributing to soft tissue stretching?Please choose all correct response/s below.

    • A.

      High flexion - during flexion the cam rises onto the post towards maximal flexion and in the case of a loose flexion space the cam could in theory become dislocated over the post

    • B.

      Low jump distance - due to the relative position of the cam, low height of the post combined with a rounded post design

    • C.

      Excessive femoral rollback - may contribute to consistent stretch on soft tissues leading to laxity, especially in flexion

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. High flexion - during flexion the cam rises onto the post towards maximal flexion and in the case of a loose flexion space the cam could in theory become dislocated over the post
    B. Low jump distance - due to the relative position of the cam, low height of the post combined with a rounded post design
    C. Excessive femoral rollback - may contribute to consistent stretch on soft tissues leading to laxity, especially in flexion
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes all three options because they are all noted as potentially contributing to soft tissue stretching. High flexion can cause the cam to rise onto the post, which could lead to dislocation if there is a loose flexion space. Low jump distance, combined with the relative position of the cam and a rounded post design, can also contribute to dislocation. Additionally, excessive femoral rollback can result in consistent stretch on soft tissues, leading to laxity, particularly in flexion.
