This study is a prospective validation study of a new hip and knee replacement-specific questionnaire that can be used to predict postoperative complications. The purpose of this study is to confirm the validity of a new hip and knee scoring system to be used as a clinical tool to predict potential complication rates in patients undergoing total hip or knee replacement surgery. This scoring system aims to stratify patients into specific risk categories based a standardized calculated score. Patients will be evaluated on health risk factors and severity of disease on radiographic imaging prior to surgery, associated to higher complication rates following surgery. The hopeful anticipated result of this study is a prospective validation of the scoring system with both statistical and clinical significance in predicting postoperative complication rates in patients with moderate to high health risk,
This stratification system may prove meaningful by allowing these patients, especially those classified as High-Risk, to be incorporated into more appropriate healthcare bundle payment systems that account for their higher financial demands. Furthermore, the stratification may allow for preoperative counseling and a shift towards non-operative management, or surgeon-patient conversations regarding the need to modify a portion of their objective risks prior to surgical intervention. Predictive risk models such as the one presented in the current study will be essential tools as the number of total hip arthroplasty procedures performed each year continue to increase and both the numbers of procedures and associated complications impose a significant cost on the U.S. healthcare system.

To determine the natural history of flare-ups in knee osteoarthritis and their relation to physical exposures.
The aim of this study was to estimate lifetime risk of knee and hip replacement following a GP diagnosis of osteoarthritis and assess how this risk varies with patient characteristics.
In vitro and clinical studies suggest that urate may contribute to osteoarthritis (OA) risk. We tested the associations between hyperuricemia and knee OA, and examined the role of obesity, using a cro...
Thiazide diuretic use is associated with higher bone mineral density (BMD) and possibly lower serum magnesium levels than loop diuretic use, and both high BMD and low serum magnesium have been linked ...
To identify depression subtypes in participants with or at-risk for symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) and to evaluate differences in pain and disability trajectories between groups.
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)
An instrument used to assess the results of rehabilitation from knee injuries, especially those requiring ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT RECONSTRUCTION. It measures recovery of knee joint function based on ACTIVITIES OF DAILY LIVING.
A developmental deformity in which the metaphysis of the FEMUR moves proximally and anteriorly away from FEMUR HEAD (epiphysis) at the upper GROWTH PLATE. It is most common in male adolescents and is associated with a greater risk of early OSTEOARTHRITIS of the hip.
Injuries to the knee or the knee joint.
A region of the lower extremity immediately surrounding and including the KNEE JOINT.
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 ...
