DISSERTATIONS PRESENTED TOWARDS ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS

  1. A biomechanical analysis of four different methods of harvesting bone -patellar tendon- bone graft in porcine knees. JBJS 2002, 84A-10, 1782-87. A porcine study to examine the incidence & patterns of fracture after different shapes of patellar bone plugs. A requirement for MCh-Trinity College, Dublin. This project was planned in two stages
  2. a) Studying the properties of porcine cancellous and cortical bone in relation to stress risers.
  3. b) Impact testing the porcine knees after harvesting the bone patella bone graft and loading knee extensor mechanism after harvesting various sizes and shapes of patellar bone grafts – patellar tendon and tibial bone graft. The conclusion drawn at the end

of this project was that round cornered patellar bone plugs are better and safe than the traditional sharp cornered ones.
