This retrospective study aims to improve the diagnosis of PJI as well as to identify microorganisms causing periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) and the drug-resistant spectrum
Hip replacement surgery is common, with over 60,000 cases in Canada annually. After hip replacement, about 1-2% patients develop a deep infection in their artificial hip implant, called a ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether an undirected synovial biopsy technique has the same accuracy in detecting periprosthetic joint infection in the knee as an arthroscopic a...
This is an open-labelled two-arm pilot comparative prospective study. All the subjects will undergo image assessment in the two stages of exchange arthroplasty surgery. At the first stage,...
Chronic infection after total joint arthroplasty generally requires implant exchange. Two stage exchange is considered as the gold standard procedure. However, some authors suggest that on...
Reconsidering Strategies for Managing Chronic Periprosthetic Joint Infection in Total Knee Arthroplasty: Using Decision Analytics to Find the Optimal Strategy Between One-Stage and Two-Stage Total Knee Revision.
Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) following total knee arthroplasty is a growing concern, as the demand for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) expands annually. Although 2-stage revision is considered t...
Tissues from a periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) of the knee contain a heavy neutrophil polymorph (NP) infiltrate (> 5 NPs per high-powered field [HPF] by Musculoskeletal Infection Society [MSIS] c...
Mycobacterium tuberculosis periprosthetic joint infection (TBPJI) is a rare complication of hip/knee joint arthroplasty. The outcomes of hip/knee TBPJI treatment are still unreported. The objective of...
Approximately 340,000 knee replacements are performed each year in the USA and UK. Around 1% of patients who have had knee replacement develop deep infection around the prosthesis: periprosthetic knee...
The aim of the study was to determine the usefulness of tranexamic acid (TXA) in revision total hip arthroplasty (rTHA) and revision total knee arthroplasty (rTKA). We analyzed the perioperative blood...
The stage in the first meiotic prophase, following ZYGOTENE STAGE, when CROSSING OVER between homologous CHROMOSOMES begins.
The process of TOOTH formation. It is divided into several stages including: the dental lamina stage, the bud stage, the cap stage, and the bell stage. Odontogenesis includes the production of tooth enamel (AMELOGENESIS), dentin (DENTINOGENESIS), and dental cementum (CEMENTOGENESIS).
A genus of tapeworm, containing several species, found as adults in birds and mammals. The larvae or cysticercoid stage develop in invertebrates. Human infection has been reported and is probably acquired from eating inadequately cooked meat of animals infected with the second larval stage known as the tetrahythridium.
Infection of animals, including fish and man, with a developmental stage of Diphyllobothrium. This stage has recently been referred to as a plerocercoid but the name sparganum has persisted. Therefore, infection of fish or other animals with the plerocercoid larvae is sparganosis. Fish-eating mammals, including man, are the final hosts.
The earliest developmental stage of a fertilized ovum (ZYGOTE) during which there are several mitotic divisions within the ZONA PELLUCIDA. Each cleavage or segmentation yields two BLASTOMERES of about half size of the parent cell. This cleavage stage generally covers the period up to 16-cell MORULA.
