To estimate the healthcare costs and demand for total knee replacement (TKR) associated with knee osteoarthritis in New Zealand over the period 2013-2038 and the contribution of increasing obesity rates to these costs.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The New Zealand medical journal
Patients with knee osteoarthritis may undergo total knee replacement too early or may delay or underuse this procedure. We quantified these categories of total knee replacement utilization in 2 cohort...
To determine if presence of calcium-containing crystals (CaC) is associated with increased knee joint degeneration over four years and assess if total number of CaCs deposited is a useful measure of d...
Obesity has been associated with a greater burden of symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. There is some evidence that patients with a very high body mass index (BMI) may have a higher risk of complication...
Knee osteoarthritis tends to modify the kinematics and kinetics of the sit-to-stand task. However, it is not clear whether the different degrees of knee osteoarthritis differentiate regarding these as...
The treatment that patients with knee OA are offered varies largely. There is a need for more evidence-based individualized guidance to treatment choice for knee osteoarthritis. This study...
In treatment of isolated medial unicondylar osteoarthritis of the knee (MU-OA), it is possible to choose between surgery with a unicondylar knee arthroplasty (UKA), or a total knee arthrop...
The purpose of the study is to investigate the density, architecture, and perfusion of bone marrow lesions (BMLs) in knee osteoarthritis. We will perform MRI's and QCT's on subjects prior ...
The purpose of this study is to use better magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) techniques to examine the knee and the bony and soft tissue changes so as to better predict the progression of o...
100 knees with primary osteoarthritis and scheduled for a total knee replacement (TKR) will be recruited from our waiting list. The patients will be randomized to become operated with the ...
Noninflammatory degenerative disease of the knee joint consisting of three large categories: conditions that block normal synchronous movement, conditions that produce abnormal pathways of motion, and conditions that cause stress concentration resulting in changes to articular cartilage. (Crenshaw, Campbell's Operative Orthopaedics, 8th ed, p2019)
The total amount (cell number, weight, size or volume) of tumor cells or tissue in the body.
The total amount of a chemical, metal or radioactive substance present at any time after absorption in the body of man or animal.
Information relating to itemized coding of procedures and costs associated with healthcare delivery, used as a means for tracking healthcare utilization, patterns of care, and treatment outcomes.
Measure of the burden of disease using the disability-adjusted-life-year (DALY). This time-based measure combines years of life lost due to premature mortality and years of life lost due to time lived in states of less than full health. The metric was developed to assess the burden of disease consistently across diseases, risk factors and regions.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, a...
