hydrotherapy arthroplasty hip

M Di Monaco, C Castiglioni
BACKGROUND: Early multidisciplinary rehabilitation can improve the recovery after total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, optimal exercise therapy has not been defined. We aimed to answer the question: "Which type and/or timing of exercise therapy is effective following THA?" DESIGN: Systematic review. METHODS: We searched four databases: MEDLINE, PEDro, Cochrane Library, and Cinahl since January 2008 till December 2012. Literature before 2008 was not searched for, because it was previously analyzed by two systematic reviews...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the preoperative effects of exercise-based interventions on pain and physical function for people awaiting joint replacement surgery of the hip or knee. DATA SOURCES: Four computer databases (CINAHL, MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Library) were searched until July 4, 2012. Search terms included knee, hip, joint replacement, arthroplasty, physiotherapy, physical therapy, exercise, hydrotherapy, rehabilitation, and preoperative. Reference lists of retrieved articles were also screened...

Major surgery, including total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA), is followed by a convalescence period, during which the loss of muscle strength and function is considerable, especially early after surgery. In recent years, a combination of unimodal evidence-based perioperative care components has been demonstrated to enhance recovery, with decreased need for hospitalization, convalescence, and risk of medical complications after major surgery-the fast-track methodology or enhanced recovery programs...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate if the timing of aquatic therapy influences clinical outcomes after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or total hip arthroplasty (THA). DESIGN: Multicenter randomized controlled trial with 3-, 6-, 12-, and 24-month follow-up. SETTING: Two university hospitals, 1 municipal hospital, and 1 rural hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Patients (N=465) undergoing primary THA (n=280) or TKA (n=185): 156 men, 309 women...

UNLABELLED: Stockton KA, Mengersen KA. Effect of multiple physiotherapy sessions on functional outcomes in the initial postoperative period after primary total hip replacement: a randomized controlled trial. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether increasing physiotherapy input from once to twice per day will result in earlier achievement of functional milestones (ie, independence in mobility and transfers) and decreased length of stay (LOS) in patients undergoing a primary total hip replacement...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of inpatient aquatic physiotherapy in addition to usual ward physiotherapy on the recovery of strength, function, and gait speed after total hip or knee replacement surgery. DESIGN: Pragmatic randomized controlled trial with blinded 6-month follow-up. SETTING: Acute-care private hospital. PARTICIPANTS: People (n=65) undergoing primary hip or knee arthroplasty (average age, 69.6+/-8.2y; 30 men)...

The aim of the study was to evaluate the subjective functional outcome of total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients who underwent hydrotherapy (HT) 6 months after discharge. A prospective randomized study was performed on 70 elderly inpatients with recent THA, who completed a rehabilitation program. After randomization, 33 of them were treated in conventional gyms (no-hydrotherapy group=NHTG) and 31 received HT (hydrotherapy group=HTG). Interviews with the Western-Ontario MacMasters Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) were performed at admission, at discharge and 6 months later...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the preoperative effects of multidimensional land-based and pool-based exercise programs for people awaiting joint replacement surgery of the hip or knee. DESIGN: Randomized, single-blind, before-after trial. SETTING: Physiotherapy gymnasium and hydrotherapy pool. PARTICIPANTS: Patients awaiting elective hip or knee joint replacement surgery. INTERVENTIONS: Land-based (n=40) or pool-based exercise program (n=42)...

PURPOSE: To obtain gait parameters during hydrotherapy (HT) in patients who were referred for rehabilitation after total hip arthroprostheses. METHOD: The study had a cohort prospective design. Patients who underwent primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) followed a HT rehabilitation program. Twenty-one consecutive patients were enrolled. Five of them dropped out for various reasons, independently of HT. Therefore 16 patients could be evaluated (5 men and 11 women)...

Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a disease with unclear pathophysiology. The condition is characterized by pain, soft tissue change, vasomotor change, and even psychosocial disturbance. It may affect the upper more than the lower extremities, and the distal more than the proximal. The trigger factors include carpal tunnel release, Dupuytren's repair, tendon release procedures, knee surgery, crush injury, ankle arthrodesis, amputation, and hip arthroplasty. Rarely, it has been associated with stroke, mastectomy, pregnancy, and osteogenesis imperfecta...

We describe the rehabilitation of 2 patients who underwent total femur replacement after neoplastic involvement of the bone. In the past, patients with cancer of the femur were generally advised to undergo a hip disarticulation or transfemoral amputation. It is now feasible to salvage the limb in selected patients, by excising the entire femur together with any contiguous soft tissue tumor and replacing it with an endoprosthesis. The surgical literature contains a number of reports on total femur replacement, which mention the rehabilitation aspects only briefly, but we found nothing on this relatively uncommon form of surgery in the rehabilitation literature...
