Surgical skin complications can be costly and could contribute to extended in-patient stay following total joint replacement or even the need for re-admission. If efficacy in reducing the...
This multicenter clinical trial aims to investigate the exact effect of drainage use for osteoarthritis patients in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) on post-operative performance.
A Prospective, Randomized, Comparative Study to Assess the Prevention of Surgical Site Infection (SSI's) in Revision Total Joint Arthroplasty Patients Treated With Single-Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (PICO) or Standard Care Dressings (AQUACEL Ag SU
The primary aim of this study is to determine if the SSI rate following revision total hip and knee arthroplasty is reduced in patients treated with the PICO device compared to patients wi...
This study will compare two different treatment approaches for the management of knee osteoarthritis (OA). All subjects will receive a standardized approach consistent with the core set of...
Prolonged wound drainage after total hip or knee arthroplasty is a very undesirable complication, both from medical as patients view. Wound drainage prolongs hospital admission and is asso...
To evaluate rates of prescription opioid use among pre-surgical knee, hip and spine osteoarthritis (OA) patients, and associations between use and socio-demographic and health status characteristics.
Crepitus is a common clinical feature of knee osteoarthritis. However, the importance of crepitus in the overall clinical presentation of individuals with knee osteoarthritis is unknown.
Lateral wedge insoles (LWIs) are non-surgical interventions used in medial knee osteoarthritis (KOA) aiming at restoring correct joint biomechanics. However, the mechanical efficacy of LWIs, based on ...
To investigate the impact of knee osteoarthritis (OA) and/or knee pain on excess mortality.
To establish "normal" ranges for synovial thickness and effusion detected by ultrasound (US) and to determine cut-offs associated with knee pain (KP) and radiographic knee osteoarthritis (RKOA) in the...
Pathologic process consisting of a partial or complete disruption of the layers of a surgical wound.
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 application of a vacuum across the surface of a wound through a foam dressing cut to fit the wound. This removes wound exudates, reduces build-up of inflammatory mediators, and increases the flow of nutrients to the wound thus promoting healing.
The removal of fluids or discharges from the body, such as from a wound, sore, or cavity.
Removal of degenerated and necrotic epithelium and underlying connective tissue of a periodontal pocket in an effort to convert a chronic ulcerated wound to an acute surgical wound, thereby insuring wound healing and attachment or epithelial adhesion, and shrinkage of the marginal gingiva. The term is sometimes used in connection with smoothing of a root surface or ROOT PLANING. (Jablonski; Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
