BACKGROUND: Recent literature suggests that the difference in revision risk between unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) can be influenced by surgeon volume and other confounders. We hypothesized that implant selection might decrease the relative risk of revision in an adjusted model. METHODS: We selected the best performing (BP) primary UKAs and TKAs performed for osteoarthritis between January 2001 and December 2012 collected through a joint replacement registry...

BACKGROUND: Cryotherapy is widely utilized to enhance recovery after knee surgeries. However, the outcome parameters often vary between studies. Therefore, the purpose of this review is to compare (1) no cryotherapy vs cryotherapy; (2) cold pack cryotherapy vs continuous flow device cryotherapy; (3) various protocols of application of these cryotherapy methods; and (4) cost-benefit analysis in patients who had unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS: A search for "knee" and "cryotherapy" using PubMed, EBSCO Host, and SCOPUS was performed, yielding 187 initial reports...

BACKGROUND: High-volume hospitals have achieved better outcomes for THAs and unicompartmental knee arthroplasties (UKAs). However, few studies have analyzed implant survival after primary TKA in high-volume centers. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Is the risk of revision surgery higher when receiving a TKA in a low-volume hospital than in a high-volume hospital? METHODS: Using nationwide billing data of the largest German healthcare insurer for inpatient hospital treatment, we identified 45,165 TKAs in 44,465 patients insured by Allgemeine Ortskrankenkasse who had undergone knee replacement surgery between January 2012 and December 2012...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) remains difficult, particularly in acute postoperative stage. The purpose of this study was to investigate the optimal cutoff value of synovial white blood cell (WBC) count, percentage of polymorphonuclear cells, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and C-reactive protein (CRP) for diagnosing early postoperative infection after knee joint arthroplasty. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed primary total knee arthroplasties and unicompartmental knee arthroplasties, with a knee aspiration within 3 weeks of surgery, from January 2006 to November 2016...

BACKGROUND: Use of intra-articular hyaluronic acid (HA) injections to manage knee osteoarthritis (OA) remains controversial because of weak and conflicting evidence. The objective was to evaluate the effectiveness of intra-articular HA injections for knee OA management. METHODS: A nested cohort of persons with knee OA seeing a specialist was created using a 10% random sample of LifeLink Plus claims (2010-2015) to compare the risk of composite (any) knee surgical interventions, total (TKA)/unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) and TKA only among HA users and 2 comparison groups: corticosteroid (CS) users and HA/CS nonusers...

PURPOSE: Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) provides significant benefits to patients with anteromedial osteoarthritis, with good long-term results. Morbidity and mortality rates are lower, and recovery is quicker. These benefits would be advantageous to the octogenarian population whom carry significant comorbidities. The primary aim was to compare the short-term functional outcome at 2 years of UKA in the octogenarian population against a stratified younger cohort of patients...

BACKGROUND: Many patients with isolated medial compartment osteoarthritis are candidates for either unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA). A novel patient decision aid (PDA) was developed to educate patients on both interventions and prepare them for making the decision with their surgeon. The study objective was to evaluate the acceptability and usefulness of a PDA for informing and helping patients reach a surgical preference without increasing decisional conflict...

BACKGROUND: Femoral and tibial radiolucent lines (RLL) after unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) can be categorized in physiological and pathological radiolucencies. Although physiological tibial radiolucency is assessed extensively in literature, studies reporting femoral radiolucency are lacking. Therefore, a retrospective study was performed to assess physiological femoral RLL and its relationship to short-term functional outcomes. METHODS: A total of 352 patients were included who underwent robotic-assisted medial UKA surgery and received a fixed-bearing metal-backed cemented medial UKA...

Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty (UKA) is a common procedure for the management of isolated osteoarthritis. UKA is considered less invasive compared to total knee arthroplasty, associated with less operative time, blood loss and faster recovery. Isolated lateral osteoarthritis is a relatively uncommon clinical problem, with an incidence about ten times lower than the medial compartment. In fact, lateral UKA are about 5-10% of the total amount of the UKAs. In addition, it's historically considered more challenging and with poorer results...

BACKGROUND: Outcomes after unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) are variable and influenced by caseload (UKA/y) and usage (percentage of knee arthroplasty that are UKA), which relates to indications. This meta-analysis assesses the relative importance of these factors. METHODS: MEDLINE (Ovid), Embase (Ovid), and Web of Science (ISI) were searched for consecutive series of cemented Phase 3 Oxford medial UKA. The primary outcome was revision rate/100 observed component years (% pa) with subgroup analysis based on caseload and usage...

BACKGROUND: Advances in surgical techniques and anesthesia have made performing unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) in the outpatient setting a possibility. The touted benefits of outpatient surgery include higher patient satisfaction and reduced costs. However, detailed information on the perioperative outcomes of outpatient compared with inpatient UKA in a large, national patient population in the United States has never been reported. The present study compares perioperative complications between outpatient and inpatient UKAs in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database...

Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) has substantial benefits, including lower perioperative morbidity and earlier recovery, compared with total knee arthroplasty. The traditionally strict indications for UKA have been challenged by studies that expanded the indications based on a diagnosis of anteromedial osteoarthritis of the knee and demonstrated successful outcomes. The Nuffield criteria no longer prohibit patients from UKA based on age, obesity, anterior knee pain, or involvement of the patellofemoral joint...

BACKGROUND: One of the anatomic goals of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is optimizing in the coronal and sagittal plane. Accurate alignments of both planes have been correlated to functional outcome and range of motion. There is a paucity of evidence on the accuracy of unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) in balancing biplanar knee alignment - specifically sagittal plane alignment. Because robotic assisted UKA has an advantage of more accurately manipulating sagittal plane for optimal alignment and kinematics based on pre-operative and intraoperative CT planning we assessed the accuracy...

BACKGROUND: Progressive degenerative changes in the lateral compartment of the knee after medial unicompartmental arthroplasty (UKA) remain a main cause of revision surgery. The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether tibiofemoral congruence and joint space width (JSW) of the lateral compartment are improved after medial UKA using traditional instruments. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the preoperative and postoperative lateral tibiofemoral congruence using validated software that evaluates the geometric relationship between surfaces and calculates a congruence index (CI)...
