Minimal Versus Conventional Exposure in Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty

2014-07-24 14:11:17 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Minimal Invasive Surgery results in less postoperative pain and better mobilization than conventional technique in Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty, provided that both groups receive Local Infiltration Analgesia.

Description

Postoperative pain is often moderate to severe following unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. In order to reduce postoperative pain and improve mobilization the minimal invasive technique was developed. After a 8-10 cm skin incision, a medial parapatellar capsule incision in made. The rectus tendon or the vastus medialis are not incised and the patella is not everted.

In recent years The Local Infiltration Analgesia (LIA) technique has been developed to reduce postoperative pain. With this LIA-technique, a long-acting local anesthetic (ropivacaine), a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (ketorolac), and epinephrine are infiltrated intraoperatively and via an intraarticular catheter postoperatively.

The aim of this study is to investigate if Minimal Invasive Surgery results in less postoperative pain and better mobilization than conventional technique in Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty, provided that both groups receive Local Infiltration Analgesia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

Procedures that avoid use of open, invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-controlled manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device.

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)

Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.

Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are invasive or surgical in nature, and require the expertise of a specially trained radiologist. In general, they are more invasive than diagnostic imaging but less invasive than major surgery. They often involve catheterization, fluoroscopy, or computed tomography. Some examples include percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, percutaneous transthoracic biopsy, balloon angioplasty, and arterial embolization.
