No differences found in incidence of complications or survivorship free of reoperation or rerevision.
Except for increased anterior-posterior knee laxity, results from this study indicated female athletes and male athletes were not similar with regard to predictors for first-time noncontact ACL injury.
Recently published results showed patients with gout who underwent total joint arthroplasty had greater wound healing and renal complications compared with patients without gout.
Patients who underwent primary hip arthroscopy experienced greater improvement in patient-reported outcome scores at 2- year follow-up compared with patients who underwent revision arthroscopy, according to recently presented data
Recently published results showed 70% of patients who underwent total hip or knee arthroplasty avoided more aggressive anticoagulation after the use of a risk stratification protocol for venous thromboembolism.
Recently published results showed surgeon work effort increased for revision total hip arthroplasty, with substantially longer length of surgery and length of stay and more blood loss and complications, compared with primary total hip arthroplasty.
Effect of General Anesthesia on Preoperative Hip Range of Motion in Patients Undergoing Hip Arthroscopy
Hip ROM does not change to a clinically significant extent with induction of general anesthesia. Small increases in external rotation in patients with FAI or acetabular dysplasia are within the standard error for ROM measurements.
Robotic-assisted surgery aims to improve TKA by enhancing the surgeon's ability to optimize soft tissue balancing, reproduce alignment, and restore normal knee kinematics.
Study to evaluate outcomes of different hip replacement techniques using mobile gait analysis system
Researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) have launched a pilot study using a portable gait analysis mat to determine early outcomes of several different hip replacement techniques. Gait analysis provides information about the way an individual walks.
Recently published results showed large variation in the rotational plane for both femoral and tibial components during 3-D unicompartmental knee arthroplasty component alignment analysis in the standing position, suggesting the importance of component positioning.
