Osteoarthritis (OA) is a long-term degenerative joint disease that disables about 10% of people over the age of 60 and compromises the quality of life of more than 20 million Americans. A ...
There is no definite evidence about the most effective treatment approach in early-stage rehabilitation after total knee arthroplasty surgery. The purpose of this study is to investigate t...
This post-market clinical follow-up study intends to investigate the survival rate at 5 years of the e.motion® PS Pro System.
The objective of this study is to compare the effect on gait of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA), using the Oxford® Partial Knee, versus total knee arthroplasty (TKA), using the V...
Although unilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is successful in restoring function, there are concerns in relation to asymmetric gait patterns. Bi-cruciate retaining (BCR) TKA design preserves both...
Osteoarthritis of the hip or knee joint is a widespread disease with a strong influence on the quality of life. At present, the extent of conservative treatment with physical therapies and analgesic...
Wound breakdown following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) increases the risk of device exposure, infection, and major amputation. Although a variety of options to facilitate coverage of compromised knee...
Total knee arthroplasty is an effective method for the treatment of end-stage knee osteoarthrosis, which can effectively relieve joint pain and reconstruct the integrity of the joint. Whether the post...
The conversion of a previously arthrodesed knee to a total knee arthroplasty is an alternative seldom used. However, arthroplasty would provide greater functionality to the arthrodesed joint. Since it...
Replacement of the knee joint.
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.
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.
