Summary

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.

Sensitivity of the Saline Load Test for Traumatic Arthrotomy of the Ankle With Ankle Arthroscopy Simulation.

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 ...

Individuals with varus thrust do not increase knee adduction when running with body borne load.

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...

Traumatic knee dislocation and popliteal artery injury: a case series.

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...

Traumatic knee injury: correlation of radiographic effusion size with the presence of internal derangement on magnetic resonance imaging.

Traumatic knee injury is a common clinical presentation. However, knee internal derangement often goes undiagnosed on physical exam. The authors hypothesize that patients with suprapatellar joint effu...

Effect of Cabbage Wraps on the Reduction of Post-Traumatic Knee Exudates in Men.

The study investigates measurable effects of cabbage leaf wraps on post-traumatic knee injury exudate absorption in men.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
