Researchers are trying to determine if providing education on proper disposal of unused opioid medications to the orthopedic patient undergoing a planned hip or knee total joint replacement will increase the percentage of patients who properly dispose of unused opioids.
To prove that total knee arthroplasty can be performed with little, if any need for opioids by using a combination of patient education, optimized pre-op and post-op pain and recovery protocols. The goal being opioid-free total knee arthroplasty.
Total knee replacement is a major and painful orthopaedic (joint and bone) surgery where the knee joint is replaced with an artificial joint. It is an effective and successful procedure to treat severe knee arthritis and reduce pain, but many patients report intense pain after the surgery. Postoperative pain control is predominated by opioids (morphine-based drugs). While opioids are effective to manage the pain, they can have acute and chronic complications, including c...
The objective of this study is to validate a new technique for intraoperative quantification of the patello-femoral joint kinematics in patients undergoing total knee replacement, and for postoperative quantification of implanted knee and general lower limb activity, along with relevant muscle dynamics.
100 knees with primary osteoarthritis and scheduled for a total knee replacement (TKR) will be recruited from our waiting list. The patients will be randomized to become operated with the Attune or PFC total knee arthroplasty. Randomisation will be done using envelopes. Patients can only participate with one knee.
The objective of this study is to document the demographic and clinical characteristics and the long-term clinical outcomes of patients who require a total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The hypothesis is that MAKO® robot assisted surgery replacing one or two compartments of the knee joint has 10 year implant survival and clinical outcomes that are equivalent to other knee replacement systems.
The study aims to compare two different kinds of pain treatment after total knee replacement (operation with artificial knee joint): 1) a large local injection in and around the knee, supplemented with injection the day after, or 2) the department's conventional pain treatment consisting of continuous nerve block in the groin.
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 procedure called total knee arthroplasty (TKA), in which the affected surface of the knee joint is replaced by plastic or metal, has been successful in restoring comfort and mobility to formerly arthritic joints. This study will compare quadriceps muscle strength, knee range of motion, and pai...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate feasibly of outpatient Total Knee Replacement, Total Hip Replacement and Unicompartmental Knee Replacement in a modern fast-track setup. The design is as an observational prospective study, evaluating patients that fulfil discharge criteria on the day of the surgery. The investigators will further evaluate safety aspects, such a early morbidity and mortality, as well as patient satisfaction.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the density, architecture, and perfusion of bone marrow lesions (BMLs) in knee osteoarthritis. We will perform MRI's and QCT's on subjects prior to total knee replacement to identify the location of BMLs. Connective tissues including tendon, ligament, and meniscus specimens normally discarded from total joint replacements will be used for live cell harvest, and protein and gene expression analyses of tissue or cultured cells.
Total knee replacement surgery is commonly performed for patients suffering from severe knee osteoarthritis. However, 20% of patients continue to experience pain after surgery. There is currently no standardized pain management protocol for pain after total knee replacement. Cooled radiofrequency ablation has been used successfully to alleviate spin-related pain and has recently been approved by the FDA to treat chronic knee arthritic pain. This pilot study aims to collect prel...
This study is being conducted to investigate the potential benefits of using a special type of fluid that can be applied to the skin (Integuseal) in addition to standard surgical skin preparation in patients undergoing total hip replacement (THA) or total knee replacement (TKA). Integuseal is supposed to lock down the skin bacteria and reduce skin infection and other problems. This study will investigate whether Integuseal is effective in reducing persistent wound drainage when...
This is a prospective, randomized, longitudinal study of the clinical outcomes of osteoarthritis patients treated by two different alignment philosophies for total knee replacement. In this study ShapeMatch® cutting guides will be compared to the conventional approach.
The study is being conducted to investigate the safety and activity of TissueGene-C injected into the knee joint of patients with chronic degenerative joint disease (DJD) who will be undergoing total knee replacement.
This study evaluates two interventions intended to increase the safe disposal of leftover prescription opioids. Approximately half of participants will receive a drug disposal kit and the other half will receive an informational sheet describing how to safely dispose of leftover prescription opioids. Participants will be randomized by day for pragmatic reasons.
This study will show whether Tri-Vector method can ensure more extensive visual field and conduct the precise surgery when compared with Mini Mid-Vastus method by conducting 2 types of skin incision approach, Tri-Vector for 36 patients or Mini-Mid Vastus for 36 patients in Vanguard PS artificial knee joint total replacement observational period before and during surgery.
More than 300,000 total knee joint replacement surgeries are performed per year in the United States and safe, effective management of post-operative pain in these patients, often elderly, deconditioned, obese, or with co-morbid diseases like sleep apnea, can be challenging and often require a multidisciplinary, multimodal approach. Opiates have been a mainstay of treatment in the post-operative period with varying degrees of success and complications. Inadequately controlled p...
Total knee replacement surgery is a conventional approach to alleviating the pain and lack of function resulting from arthritis of the knee. While conventional knee replacement surgery is highly successful, incidences of improperly installed replacement parts are not uncommon. To improve outcomes, robotic-assisted total knee replacement surgery has recently become available, and has been shown to be extremely effective for partial knee replacement surgery. However, further rese...
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the most common joint replacement surgery and its incidence is expected to increase 673% to 3.48 million procedures annually by 2030. After more than 20 years of follow-up data, TKA is confirmed to be an effective treatment for knee osteoarthritis, however, postoperative pain management continues to be a challenge despite advances in surgical techniques and anesthetic practice to minimize discomfort and enhance recovery. This acute post-surgical...
This clinical study will evaluate the short-term (1- and 2-year) and medium term (5-year) safety and performance of the ANTHEM™ CR Total Knee System in patients with non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease of the knee requiring total knee replacement. Clinical, radiographic, Health Economic Outcomes and safety outcomes will be evaluated.
Study question: Is there an ideal combination of intraoperative long acting analgesics (periarticular infiltration (PI), femoral nerve block (FB) and intrathecal opioids (IO)) to optimize post-operative functional recovery, decrease overall narcotic consumption and enable faster 'readiness to discharge' for patients undergoing primary total knee replacement (TKR)?
The purpose of this research study is to develop a database of information regarding the diagnosis, treatment, and outcome of participants who have had a joint replacement. The more information gathered, the better the investigators will be able to treat future patients who need a joint replacement. For example the investigators learn what works well to help design implants and treatment protocols for the future. The investigators publish manuscripts and present research findin...
