BACKGROUND AND AIM:   The incidence of Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) is an important indicator of the quality of care. The behaviors associated with the prevention of infections are not only supported by rational knowledge or motivation, but are mediated by social, emotional and often stereotyped behaviors. The awarness of the good practices related to HAI, may be a factor. Other studies, identify how the perception of the problem in healthcare professionals is often influenced by a tendency towards an external Locus of Control: the patient, the family, the other wards, other care settings...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: An empathic approach is fundamental for therapeutic relationship between nurse and patient. According to some researchers, female nursing students show higher empathic attitude in comparison with males, but both show a decline in empathy level as their studies progress. This preliminary study evaluated the self-reported emotional empathy level among undergraduate students at first and second year of nursing 3-year course. METHOD: To assess empathy level, the Balanced Emotional Empathy Scale (BEES) was administered to all students enrolled in the 2015/16 academic year (N=142), at the beginning of first year (T0) and at mid-point of second year (T1) of nursing course...

The introduction of multidisciplinary approach with chemo and radiotherapy, the advances in surgical and the improvements of diagnostic techniques allowed limb salvage surgery in most cases of bone sarcomas instead of amputation. Modular megaprostheses are the most common method of reconstruction after segmental resection of the long bones in the extremities for their availability, immediate fixation, early weight bearing, good function. Despite the advances in materials and implant designs, these systems have an high incidence of complications...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Periprosthetic knee fractures incidence is gradually raising due to aging of population and increasing of total knee arthroplasties. Management of this complication represents a challenge for the orthopaedic surgeon. Aim of the present study is to critically review the recent literature about epidemiology, risk factors, diagnosis, management and outcome of periprosthetic knee fractures. METHODS: A systematic search of Embase, Medline and Pubmed was performed by two reviewers who selected the eligible papers favoring studies published in the last ten years...

Paolo Adravanti, Sebastiano Vasta
Total knee arthroplasty is a successful operation that significantly improves patient's quality of life. However, studies demonstrated as only 82% to 89% of patients are satisfied with their surgery, being the other disappointed with regard to their expectations. Two to 5.7% of total knee arthroplasties (TKAs) require revision within 5 years. Both complex primary cases and revision TKA often necessitate for a higher degree of constrain than cruciate retaining or postero-stabilized implant design. In the 1970s varus-valgus constrained (VVC) or semi-constrained implants have been developed by Insall and associates from the PS design, which provide varus-valgus stability preserving a fair amount of host bone...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is usually made more complex by the presence of bone defects, which may be caused by periprosthethic infection, polyethylene wear, implant loosening or fractures. The main aim of the present work is to review the available literature to understand the current options to manage with the bone loss during knee revisions. METHODS: Available English literature for bone defects in revision TKAs has been evaluated looking at treatment options and their results in terms of clinical and radiological outcomes and failure rates...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Periprosthetic knee infection is a rare complication associated with prosthetic failure; incidence change from 0,4-2% of primary total knee replacement and 5.6% in revisions. Indications for debridment, antibiotics and implant retention (DAIR) are early acute infections or acute delayed infection. Aim of the work is to check if this technique is still a successful in early infections. METHODS: We have analyzed recent literature data on DAIR and all DAIR procedures in our clinic in the last 10 years, the mean time between onset of symptoms and surgery, the mean antibiotic therapy duration and results we have obtained...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: Hypersensitivity to metals in the general population has an incidence of about 15%, and in rising also for the higher number of joint replacements in the last decades. Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) represents the most performed orthopaedic procedure during last years, and it seems to be particularly associated with sensitization after surgery. On the other hand, there is a rising amount of patients with painful but well implanted and functioning TKAs: in certain cases, after the exclusion of the most frequent causes of failure, a condition of hypersensitivity may be found, and a revision with anallergic implants is mandatory...

ptic loosening, instability and infection are the major causes of TKA failure. For many years, nuclear medicine (NM) imaging was helpful to frame a painful total joint arthroplasty. The differentiation of septic from aseptic prosthetic loosening is critical. The latest AAOS guidelines to detect periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) restrict the role of NM scintigraphy. On the other hand, several studies suggest that NM imaging plays an important role in the evaluation of patients with painful prosthesis, but its specificity in differentiating aseptic loosening from infection is low...

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the treatment of choice for end-stage osteoarthritis of the knee. The aging of population and the need to maintain high quality of life have increased the demand for TKA. Although considered a successful procedure, 15-30% of patients presenting persistent pain. The management of these patients requires a clinical, laboratory and radiological assessment in order to address the underlying aetiology. There are several causes of pain, divided in joint and non-joint related, which should be diagnosed and treated promptly...

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE WORK: UKA has proven to be an effective surgical procedure, but its survivorship is still negatively affected by inaccuracy in component component positioning, implant and limb alignment. Robotic surgery has been introduced in order to minimize such technical errors. The aim of the present paper was to evaluate clinical and surgical outcomes after a 3 years' experience of robotic assisted UKA with the Mako Robotic Arm. METHODS: Seventy-three patients undergoing  UKA with robotic instrumentation (65 medial UKAs, 8 lateral UKAs) and with a clinical follow-up of 3 -37 months were included in the present study...
