Procrastination of wound drainage and malnutrition affect the outcome of joint arthroplasty

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2384013/

he association between wound drainage and subsequent periprosthetic infection is well known. However, the most appropriate treatment of wound drainage is not well understood. We retrospectively reviewed the records of 10,325 patients (11,785 procedures), among whom 300 patients (2.9%) developed persistent (greater than 48 hours postoperatively) wound drainage. Wound drainage...

Joint Surgery Has Major Impact on Pain Less Effect on Functioning

Location: http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/709651

In patients with inflammatory arthropathy, orthopedic surgery -- especially joint replacement - has a major impact on pain but less of an effect on other aspects of health, according to a study from Norway. "Improvement in the measures of physical functioning was generally smaller than in measures of pain," the researchers...

The effect of ultrasound on the healing of muscle-pediculated bone graft in scaphoid non-union

Location: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2532075/

The use of pedicled vascularised bone grafts from the distal radius makes it possible to transfer bone with a preserved circulation and viable osteoclasts and osteoblasts. Experiments performed at the basic science level has provided substantial evidence that low-intensity ultrasound can accelerate and augment the fracture healing process. Only an...

H-reflex amplitude asymmetry is an earlier sign of nerve root involvement than latency

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1756-0500/4/102/abstract

Based on our clinical experience, the H-reflex amplitude asymmetry might be an earlier sign of nerve root involvement than latency in patients with S1 radiculopathy. However, no data to support this assumption are available. The purpose of this study was to review and report the electrophysiological changes in H-reflex amplitude...

2001 Prospective evaluation of magnetic resonance imaging and physical examination findings in patients with greater trochanteric pain syndrome

Location: http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/85512919/abstract?CRETRY=1&SRETRY=0

Conclusion The results support the hypothesis that gluteus medius tendon pathology is important in defining GTPS. In this series, trochanteric bursal distension was uncommon and did not occur in the absence of gluteus medius pathology. The physical findings suggest that Trendelenburg's sign is the most sensitive and specific physical sign for...

Determination of the efficacy and side-effect profile of lower doses of intrathecal morphine in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty

Location: http://www.biomedcentral.com/1471-2253/8/5/abstract

Intrathecal (IT) morphine provides excellent post-operative analgesia, but causes multiple side effects including nausea and vomiting (PONV), pruritus and respiratory depression, particularly at higher doses. The lowest effective dose of spinal morphine in patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty is not known.
We evaluated the analgesic efficacy and side effect profile of...

Disk-caused nerve compression in patients with acute low-back pain

Location: http://radiology.rsna.org/content/186/3/731.long

Ninety-five patients with acute low-back and radicular pain underwent magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and either plain computed tomography (CT) (n = 32) or CT myelography (n = 63) for diagnosis of herniated nucleus pulposus-caused nerve compression (HNPNC). Patients were followed up for at least 6-12 months. Fifty-six patients underwent surgery,...

Total Knee Replacement in Patients with Parkinson Disease JBJS

Location: http://web.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/67-B/3/424.pdf

Total knee replacements were performed on three patients with Parkinson’s disease.

Rheumatoid nodules at the cement-bone interface in revision arthroplasty of rheumatoid patients

Location: http://www.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/reprint/75-B/3/455

We studied the histology of the cement-bone interface and the regenerated synovium in ten aseptically loosened arthroplasties in rheumatoid patients. In two patients we found rheumatoid nodules at the cement-bone interface and marked lymphoplasmacytic infiltration in another three. Failed joints in osteoarthritic patients did not show these changes, and it...
