The aim of the study was to assess the influence of a physiotherapy program based on proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) on kinematic gait pattern after total knee arthroplasty. This comparative study included two groups of patients qualified for total surgical knee joint replacement due to osteoarthritis: a study group and a control group, either consisting of 28 patients of a matched age range of 55-90 years. Following surgery, 4 days after standard postoperative rehabilitation, the study patients were subjected to a 3-week-long therapist-assisted rehabilitation based on PNF principles (10 sessions of 75 min each), whereas control patients were discharged with instructions on how to exercise in the home setting...

BACKGROUND: The WHO includes osteoarthritis as a disease of priority, owing to its significant impact on quality of life, and globally increasing prevalence. Hospital budgets are under pressure to ration knee replacements and shorten inpatient stays. Prolonged tourniquet application has been hypothesised to extend recovery through pain and reduced mobility. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 123 elective total knee replacements meeting inclusion criteria took place from July 2015 to October 2017 at the Royal Free Hospital...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: In Greece, as in many countries, there is a scarcity of evidence in the type of physiotherapy services offered for the rehabilitation of total knee replacement (TKR). Despite the number of TKRs annually performed in Greece (over 10,000), there are no available clinical guidelines as to the content of best physiotherapy practice. The aim of this nationwide survey undertaken by physiotherapists treating TKR patients post-operatively was to record standard practice and services available in Greece...

Fast-track total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a well-established concept including optimized logistics and evidence-based treatment, focusing on minimizing surgical stress and improved post-operative recovery, thus leading to lower mortality and morbidity as well as high patient satisfaction. All patients are eligible for fast-track TKA, and hence the fast-track concept should be standard at all joint replacement facilities. Future challenges of fast-track TKA include safe introduction of outpatient protocols, acute and chronic pain after surgery and optimal utilization of post-operative physiotherapy...

Introduction The weekend effect is a perceived difference in outcome between medical care provided at the weekend when compared to that of a weekday. Clearly multifactorial, this effect remains incompletely understood and variable in different clinical contexts. In this study we analyse factors relevant to the weekend effect in elective lower-limb joint replacement at a large NHS multispecialty academic healthcare centre. Materials and Methods We reviewed the electronic medical records of 352 consecutive patients who received an elective primary hip or knee arthroplasty...

Single compartment osteoarthritis is a commonly encountered condition in the middle-aged population, with the medial compartment being the most commonly involved compartment. Medial compartment osteoarthritis becomes seriously disabling for these active patients, with a very few definitive solutions. These patients quickly stop responding to the conservative methods such as lifestyle modification, drugs, physiotherapy, and rehab programs. Less invasive procedures such as intra-articular injections or joint debridement also do not give a long-lasting relief...

This is the description of a 58-year-old female patient presenting 8 months after a horse riding accident with significant pain and inability to walk independently. Imaging revealed a large osseous defect of the lateral tibia plateau which was not united posteriorly. The patient refused knee replacement and we developed a patient specific two-step procedure for her. Step 1: Filling of the defect with a large cortico-cancellous autograft from the posterior iliac crest; step 2: Transplantation of a fresh large osteochondral shell allograft (FLOCSAT)...

H Bork
Due to current demographic developments with a continuous increase in average life expectancy and improved medical treatment, the number of elderly patients with joint replacement of the lower extremities also has increased in recent years. Most of these patients have not only one but several chronic diseases requiring treatment and medication. Drug-drug interaction and functional restrictions of the elderly additionally reduce the postoperative psychophysical capacity; therefore, special knowledge in rehabilitative treatment and pain management is necessary...
