  • Primary hip arthroscopy yields improved patient-reported outcome scores

    Patients who underwent primary hip arthroscopy experienced greater improvement in patient-reported outcome scores at 2-year follow-up compared with patients who underwent revision arthroscopy, according to recently presented data.

  • More surgeon work effort found with revision vs primary THA

    Source: Healio

    Recently published results showed surgeon work effort increased for revision total hip arthroplasty, with substantially longer length of surgery and length of stay and more blood loss and complications, compared with primary total hip arthroplasty.

  • A crisis in the treatment of osteoporosis

    Source: Medical Xpress

    The authors state: “While there are certainly controversies in the field of osteoporosis, there are also issues upon which there is complete or near-complete agreement: specifically, there is consensus that patients with hip fracture should receive pharmacological treatment to prevent additional fractures, as they are clearly at risk for recurrent hip or other osteoporotic fractures, and initiation of bisphosphonate therapy after hip fracture has been shown to reduce the risk of a second hip fracture.”

  • Knee Injections vs. Knee Replacement: What are My Options?

    Source: Medical News Today

    According to the Arthritis Foundation, over 50 million Americans have arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative joint disease. Though it can occur in younger people, it often affects people 50 years of age and older.

  • Innovations in Total Knee Arthroplasty: Improved Technical Precision, But Unclear Clinical Benefits

    Source: Healio

    Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has been an effective treatment for patients with advanced degenerative joint disease. During the past 4 decades, changes in TKA materials, designs, and instrumentation systems have been incremental with an intention to improve technique consistency, functional implant performance, and implant survival.

  • Parental hip fracture predicts fracture risk in adult offspring

    Source: Healio

    Adults are at higher risk for major osteoporotic fracture if one of their parents experienced a hip fracture, particularly if that fracture occurred at a younger age, according to recent study findings.

    In a historical cohort study, William Leslie, MD, MSc, FRCPC, professor of medicine and radiology at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and colleagues analyzed data from all Manitoba residents aged at least 40 years between 1997 and 2014 with continuous health care coverage and linkage to at least one parent through the publicly funded health care insurance database (261,705 offspring; 48.3% women; 478,792 parents).

  • Repair cartilage potentially can heal horribly broken bones

    Source: Science Daily

    Now new research shows that stem cells could one day be stimulated to make a special type of cartilage to help repair large, hard-to-heal bone fractures. Muscle and Medicine reported that hundreds of NFL players have invested in using stem cells to treat injuries. The publication revealed one NFL linebacker ‘paid $6,000 a pop for a 1-milliliter vial of donated placenta tissue containing stem cells to be injected into each of his beat-up knees.’

  • Multiple risk factors, BMD associated with hip fracture in older men

    Source: Healio

    Older men with an increasing number of specific risk factors combined with decreased bone mineral density at the femoral neck are at elevated risk for hip fracture, according to study findings.

    Jane A. Cauley, DrPH , professor and vice chair for research in the department of epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health, and colleagues analyzed data from 5,876 men not assigned osteoporosis medications at baseline who participated in the Osteoporotic Fractures in Men (MrOS) study, a multicenter, prospective study of risk factors for fractures. Researchers followed the cohort for incident hip fractures (regardless of trauma level) for a mean of 8.6 years; questionnaires were administered by telephone or mail every 3 years, and hip fractures were verified by physician adjudication of medical records.

  • Patients may not need to wait two weeks to shower following knee replacement surgery

    Source: Science Daily

    A Loyola Medicine study suggests it may not be necessary for knee replacement patients to wait up to two weeks after surgery before showering, as many surgeons now require.

    The study compared patients who were allowed to shower two days after surgery with patients who had to wait 10 to 14 days. Researchers performed bacterial culture swabs of skin next to incisions, and no differences were found between the early-shower and delayed-shower groups. No patient in either group experienced an infection. As expected, patients overwhelmingly preferred being allowed to shower early.

  • Comparable results seen with high- vs low-intensity plyometric exercise after ACL reconstruction

    Source: Healio

    Results from this randomized controlled trial showed both low- and high-intensity plyometric exercise for rehabilitation following ACL reconstruction positively affected knee function, knee impairments and psychological status among patients after 8 weeks of intervention.Researchers randomly assigned 24 patients who underwent ACL reconstruction to 8 weeks of either low- or high-intensity plyometric exercise, and the groups were distinguished by the anticipated magnitude of vertical ground-reaction forces. Investigators assessed patient outcomes with the IDKC subjective knee form and a biomarker for articular cartilage degradation.
