REVIEW
John T Cavanaugh, Matthew Powers
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: With the increase of publications available to the rehabilitation specialist, there is a need to identify a progression to safely progress the patient through their post-operative ACL reconstruction rehabilitation program. Rehabilitation after ACL reconstruction should follow an evidence-based functional progression with graded increase in difficulty in activities. RECENT FINDINGS: Clinicians should be discouraged not to use strict time frames and protocols when treating patients following ACL reconstruction...

REVIEW
Daniel S Sveom, Mary K Otteman, Kevin L Garvin
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Total joint arthroplasty (TJA) has had an increased demand over the recent years. It is a successful procedure, and there are relatively few complications, but there is a high overall cost. There is a push to increase the quality of care, lessen complications, and decrease cost by reducing readmissions. This article will discuss the risk factors that can contribute to the complication and readmission rates following TJA. RECENT FINDINGS: Several risk factors have been found to contribute to the complication and readmission rates following a TJA...

REVIEW
Alexander S McLawhorn, Leonard T Buller
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this review was to evaluate the literature regarding bundle payment reimbursement models for total joint arthroplasty (TJA). RECENT FINDINGS: From an economic standpoint, TJA are cost-effective, but they represent a substantial expense to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Historically, fee-for-service payment models resulted in highly variable cost and quality. CMS introduced Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) in 2012 and subsequently the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) reimbursement model in 2016 to improve the value of TJA from the perspectives of both CMS and patients, by improving quality via cost control...

REVIEW
Brian J Eckenrode, James L Carey, Brian J Sennett, Miltiadis H Zgonis
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The goal of this paper is to review the current management and prevention of post-operative complications after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Trends in rehabilitation techniques will be presented, in addition to suggestions for interventions and expected milestones in ACL reconstruction recovery. RECENT FINDINGS: ACL reconstruction protocols have evolved to more of a criterion-based progression rather than a tissue-healing time frame...

REVIEW
George J Davies, Eric McCarty, Matthew Provencher, Robert C Manske
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Because of the epidemiological incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, the high reinjury rates that occur when returning back to sports, the actual number of patients that return to the same premorbid level of competition, the high incidence of osteoarthritis at 5-10-year follow-ups, and the effects on the long-term health of the knee and the quality of life for the patient, individualizing the return to sports after ACL reconstruction (ACL-R) is critical...

REVIEW
Bradford S Waddell, Kaitlin Carroll, Seth Jerabek
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Total joint arthroplasty is regarded as a highly successful procedure. Patient outcomes and implant longevity, however, are related to proper alignment and position of the prostehses. In an attempt to reduce outliers and improve accuracy and precision of component position, navigation and robotics have been introduced. These technologies, however, come at a price. The goals of this review are to evaluate these technologies in total joint arthroplasty and determine if they add value...

REVIEW
T David Tarity, Marion M Swall
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this manuscript is to review published literature over the last 5 years to assess recent trends and influencing factors regarding discharge disposition and post-discharge care following total joint arthroplasty. We evaluated instruments proposed to predict a patient's discharge disposition and summarize reports investigating the safety in sending more patients home by reviewing complications and readmission rates. RECENT FINDINGS: Current literature supports decreased length of hospital stay and increased discharge to home with cost savings and stable readmission rates...

REVIEW
Polly de Mille, Jamie Osmak
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The purpose of this paper is to identify strategies for a successful transition to sports in patients following rehabilitation for ACL reconstruction surgery (ACLR). RECENT FINDINGS: Recent research continues to demonstrate a relatively low rate of return to previous level of play among athletes following ACLR combined with a significant risk of injury to either the ipsi or the contralateral ACL. Recent research also demonstrates a growing use of a varied battery of assessments to determine readiness to return to sport as well as a lack of consensus on the ideal rehabilitation program, the criteria for clearance for return to play (both in time from surgery and functional milestones), and the nature of a conditioning program designed specifically for transitioning the cleared athlete back to competition...

REVIEW
Forrest H Schwartz, Jeffrey Lange
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: It is well established that certain patient-specific risk factors affect outcomes following total joint arthroplasty. The goal of this paper is to summarize the latest data on several variables that have been investigated in the last 3 years and to characterize the effects these factors have on the success of hip and knee replacement. RECENT FINDINGS: Preoperative diagnoses of depression and anxiety, liver disease, hypoalbuminemia, vitamin D deficiency, and diabetes mellitus are associated with increased risk of postoperative complications and can lead to worse outcomes after joint replacement surgery...

REVIEW
Trent Nessler, Linda Denney, Justin Sampley
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Mechanisms leading to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury have been identified, yet re-injury or a secondary injury persists in the athletic population. The purpose of this review is to identify risk factors associated with ACL injury and investigate programs to prevent injury. RECENT FINDINGS: Faulty mechanics during dynamic movement that cause excessive valgus force at the knee increases the risk of ACL injury. Faulty mechanics may be a result of lateral displacement of the trunk, unequal limb loading, and lack of control to avoid the valgus knee position...

REVIEW
Paul K Edwards, Simon C Mears, C Lowry Barnes
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Participation in alternative payment models has focused efforts to improve outcomes and patient satisfaction while also lowering cost for elective hip and knee replacement. The purpose of this review is to determine if preoperative education classes for elective hip and knee replacement achieve these goals. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent literature demonstrates that patients who attend education classes prior to surgery have decreased anxiety, better post-operative pain control, more realistic expectations of surgery, and a better understanding of their surgery...

REVIEW
George F Chimento, Leslie C Thomas
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The perioperative surgical home (PSH) is a patient-centered, physician-led, multidisciplinary care pathway developed to deliver value-based care based on shared decision-making. Physician and hospital reimbursement will be tied to providing quality care at lower cost, and the PSH model has been used in providing care to patients undergoing lower extremity arthroplasty. The purpose of this review is to discuss the rationale, definition, development, current state, and future direction of the PSH...
