PURPOSE: Autologous platelet gel, developed from fresh autologous blood, is a breakthrough in the promotion and acceleration of soft tissue and bone repair. The application of autologous platelet gel has been reported to improve haemostasis and promote function recovery. We screened the randomized controlled trials and controlled clinical trials of high quality to investigate whether autologous platelet gel makes a better performance for postoperative bleeding and functional recovery in patients after total knee arthroplasty...

INTRODUCTION: There is no consensus on the position of the knee joint while performing wound closure after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Further, there are no studies focusing on the association between early functional outcomes and different wound closure strategies. Therefore, we investigated the effects of tourniquet and knee position during wound closure on early recovery of range of motion (ROM) after primary TKA. To our knowledge, this is the first study to evaluate the influence of both tourniquet and knee position during wound closure in primary TKA...

: The primary aim of this study was to assess the clinical and radiological results after hemi-hamate resurfacing arthroplasty in patients with acute or chronic unstable fractures of the base of the middle phalanx and to describe technical features that can facilitate the surgical procedure. Hemi-hamate arthroplasties were done in 19 patients (mean age 39 years) with an isolated fracture at the base of the middle phalanx that involved more than 40% of the articular surface. We assessed ten chronic cases (treated >6 weeks after fracture) and nine acute ones (<6 weeks) at a mean of 24 months...

Femoral nerve neuropathy after total hip arthroplasty is rare but catastrophic complication. Pain and quadriceps muscle weakness caused by this complication can significantly affect the functional outcome. Here we present a case report, describing delayed onset femoral nerve palsy associated with iliopsoas hematoma following pseudoaneurysm of a branch of profunda femoris artery after 3 months of primary total hip arthroplasty in an 80-year-old female patient with single kidney. Hip arthroplasty was done for painful primary osteoarthritis of left hip...

BACKGROUND: Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) is now performed at nearly the same rate as anatomic total shoulder arthroplasty in the United States. Repair of the subscapularis is of vital importance in total shoulder arthroplasty; however, its utilization in RTSA has recently been questioned. METHODS: This is a retrospective comparative study from prospectively collected data comparing the outcomes and complications after primary RTSA with or without subscapularis repair...

BACKGROUND: Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) are valuable tools for quantifying outcomes of orthopedic surgery. However, when baseline scores are not obtained, there is considerable controversy about whether PROMs can be administered retrospectively for patients to recall their preoperative state. We investigated the accuracy of patient recall after total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA) using the American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) assessment score. METHODS: Recalled ASES scores were collected postoperatively at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months from 169 patients who previously completed baseline scores before TSA...

BACKGROUND: Glenoid component loosening is a common indication for revision shoulder arthroplasty. The objective of this study is to assess the longer-term outcomes of patients undergoing revision specifically for aseptic loosening. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1985 and 2005, 34 revision shoulder arthroplasties were performed for aseptic glenoid loosening. Three patients were lost to follow-up. Treatment included component reimplantation in 20 shoulders (group I) or component removal with bone grafting in 11 shoulders (group II)...

INTRODUCTION: Charcot arthropathy is a rare cause of debilitating joint destruction. Shoulder arthroplasty for Charcot arthropathy is challenging secondary to local bone and soft tissue loss, lack of protective sensation, and altered muscle control. The purpose of this study is to review the outcomes, complications, and survivorship of shoulder arthroplasty for Charcot arthropathy. METHODS: Between January 2000 and December 2011, ten shoulders with Charcot arthropathy were treated with shoulder arthroplasty at our Institution (six hemiarthroplasty, one total shoulder arthroplasty, three reverse shoulder arthroplasty)...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients report similar or better pain and function before revision hip arthroplasty than before primary arthroplasty but worse results are reported after revision surgery than after primary surgery. The trajectory of post-operative recovery during the first months and any differences by type of surgery have received little attention. We explored the trajectories of change in pain and function after revision hip arthroplasty to 12-months post-operatively and compare them with those observed after primary hip arthroplasty...

INTRODUCTION: With the rising number of total hip arthroplasties (THAs) each year, it is increasingly important for surgeons to have evidence-based information on which to determine how often patients should be examined postoperatively. The purpose of this research was to determine whether it is possible to identify - based on Harris Hip Score (HHS) - early signs or predictors of THA failure so that methods of postoperative follow-up can be scheduled in advance of the time frame indicated by those predictors of failure...

PURPOSE: Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) malalignment may result in pain and limited range of motion. The present study assessed the influence of different surgeon's and patient's related factors on the post-operative tibial tray coronal alignment. METHODS: The charts and the x-rays of a continuous prospective series of 1417 TKAs operated upon between 1987 and 2015 were retrospectively reviewed. The long-leg AP views were performed at two months post-op and the tibial mechanical angle of the tibial tray was measured...

Importance: Liposomal bupivacaine is a novel extended-duration anesthetic that has recently been used for local infiltration in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). Athough liposomal bupivacaine is widely used, it is unknown if the benefits justify the cost in the veteran population at our institution. Objective: To evaluate a change in practice: the effect of local infiltration of liposomal bupivacaine on perioperative outcomes in patients undergoing primary TKA. Design, Setting, and Participants: A retrospective cohort study was conducted among patients who underwent primary TKA at a Veterans Affairs Medical Center before (March 3, 2013-March 2, 2014) and after (March 3, 2014-March 2, 2015) the implementation of liposomal bupivacaine for local infiltration in TKA...

Background: Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most common and successful surgical procedures in orthopedic surgery and clinical success can be characterized by the revision rate and improvement of function, as well as the patient's satisfaction and pain. Despite the clinical success of primary THA with 10-year survival rates as high as 96 % (Swedish Hip Arthroplasty Register, 2011), the prevalence of groin pain after conventional total hip replacement ranges from 0.4 to 18.3 % and activity-limiting thigh pain is still an existing problem linked to the femoral component of uncemented hip replacement in up to 1...
