The purpose of this study is to determine if adding blue dye improves the saline load test, which is a way to detect a traumatic intraarticular knee injury by injecting normal saline into the knee and looking for outflow through the wound.

Randomized, single-blind trial in which one group of patients will be operated with a "Mid-Vastus approach" of the knee joint and the other group will undergo knee surgery with a "Sub-Vast...
Quadriceps-sparing minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with side-cutting instruments has been proposed to limit surgical dissection without compromising the surgical outcome. ...
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of neuromuscular exercise and analgesic use on knee joint load, in patients with mild to moderate knee osteoarthritis (OA). It is expec...
251 consecutive patients with knee arthrosis were randomized to one of three interventions: Four weekly injections of 2 ml isotonic saline (placebo), 2 ml sodium hyaluronate (hyaluronan) o...
For the last 70 years, orthopaedic dogma has dictated that all injuries that penetrate the joint capsule require formal irrigation and debridement in the operating room to minimize the ris...
The saline load test has been used to evaluate for traumatic arthrotomy in orthopaedics. The purpose of this study was to determine the volume of saline required to detect traumatic arthrotomy of the ...
The medial parapatellar arthrotomy (MPPA) is a commonly utilized surgical approach; however, the placement of the arthrotomy and its influence on intraoperative patellar tracking has not been evaluate...
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common occupational hazard for service members. This study quantified how body borne load impacts knee biomechanics for participants who do and do not present varus thrust (ra...
Biomechanical factors are important treatment targets in knee osteoarthritis. The knee adduction (KAM) and flexion (KFM) moments, quadriceps strength and power, load frequency, and body mass index (BM...
Popliteal artery injury is a potentially-limb threatening complication of traumatic knee dislocation. We describe two such cases that had been treated in our unit over the last decade. The first one w...
Intradermal injection of a heated (pasteurized) saline suspension of sarcoid tissue obtained from a sarcoid spleen or lymph node. In patients with active sarcoidosis a dusky red nodule develops slowly over the next few weeks at the injection site. Histologic examination, an essential part of the complete test, reveals sarcoid tissue.
The physical state of supporting an applied load. This often refers to the weight-bearing bones or joints that support the body's weight, especially those in the spine, hip, knee, and foot.
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.
The quantity of measurable virus in a body fluid. Change in viral load, measured in plasma, is sometimes used as a SURROGATE MARKER in disease progression.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Anxiety is caused by stress. It is a natural reaction, and is beneficial in helping us deal with tense situations and pressure. It is deterimental when is becomes an excessive, irrational dread of everyday situations. The most common types of anxiety di...
