This study was designed to correlate demographic factors (age, gender, obesity, and comorbidities) with pathological and radiological findings in Saudi patients who were treated by TKA
. Such correlations will help plan surgical intervention in knee OA and to evaluate the outcomes.
Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA
) is currently regarded as the most effective treatment for osteoarthritis.
Until recently, TKA
was performed with the use of a tourniquet in our hospital, and LIA was performed for postoperative pain relief.
The objective of this study was to quantify and assess the effect of hypovitaminosis D on the post-operative functional outcome following TKA
since there is no existing study done in our local population highlighting the role of serum vitamin-D levels.
Achieving the optimal balance in flexion and extension of a TKA
requires an in-depth understanding of the principles of knee arthroplasty, as well as the ability to apply those principles in a dynamic intraoperative situation.
We also analyzed the test result of the subjects who underwent TKA
excluding those with other procedures.
Restoration of the mechanical axis of the lower extremity in total knee arthroplasty (TKA
) is crucial for the function and long-term survival of the prosthetic components.
Hiral Master, P.T., M.P.H., from the University of Delaware in Newark, and colleagues used data from the Osteoarthritis Initiative to examine the extent to which walking intensity correlates with the risk for TKA
among adults with or at high risk for knee OA.
Nearly 200 participants had THA or TKA
, and in that subgroup, there was an even stronger--albeit still not statistically significant--trend for a higher delirium rate with gabapentin than with placebo (Anesthesiology.
The major issue that occurs with TKA
is the per and post operative blood loss associated with it16,17.
- Staines-upon-Thames, UK-based specialty pharmaceutical company Mallinckrodt plc (NYSE: MNK) has completed two retrospective analyses that provide health economic insights on use of Ofirmev (acetaminophen) intravenous (IV) injection in total knee arthroplasty (TKA
) and its impact on length of stay, discharge status and readmissions, the company said.
While there are studies investigating the age-related differences in functional activities of patients with OA or TKA
, our search for studies investigating age-related changes in balance after TKA
demonstrated a gap in the literature.
