  • total knee arthroplasty
  • Flexion instability is a relatively new diagnosis following total knee arthroplasty (TKA), and over the past decade, as surgeons have learned more about how and why TKAs fail, it has been identified as the number 1 non-infection cause of early TKA failures. (icjr.net)
  • Jose A. Rodriguez, MD, from Center for Joint Preservation and Reconstruction, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, discusses what orthopaedic surgeons should know about evaluating and managing the unstable total knee arthroplasty. (icjr.net)
  • Revision TKA
  • What's largely missing from the literature, according to R. Michael Meneghini, MD, from Indiana University in Indianapolis, is data on patient outcomes following revision surgery for flexion instability, particularly in comparison with outcomes of revision TKA for traditional diagnoses such as osteolysis, wear, and aseptic loosening. (icjr.net)
  • Dr. Meneghini has added to the literature with this study, "Patients Improve Less after Revision TKA for Flexion Instability vs. Failures Related to Infection or Osteolysis" (Poster 187), which he presented at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in Orlando.

  • osteoarthritis
  • Osteoarthritis is thought to be caused by a combination of intrinsic vulnerabilities of the joint, such as anatomic shape and alignment, and environmental factors, such as body weight, injury, and overuse. (ovid.com)
  • No difference in osteoarthritis severity was found in the different models, with the exception of increased synovial hyperplasia in the joints of Gdf5(Bp-J/+) mice in the treadmill model. (kuleuven.be)
  • knee
  • Knee Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure performed using an arthroscope, a viewing instrument, to look into the knee joint to diagnose or treat a knee problem. (gomberamd.com)
  • The knee joint is one of the most complex joints of the body. (gomberamd.com)
  • The lower end of the thighbone (femur) meets the upper end of the shinbone (tibia) at the knee joint. (gomberamd.com)
  • The bones work together with the muscles and tendons to provide mobility to the knee joint. (gomberamd.com)
  • The knee joint is vulnerable to a variety of injuries. (gomberamd.com)
  • An arthroscope, a narrow tube with a tiny video camera on the end, is inserted through one of the incisions to view the knee joint. (gomberamd.com)
  • The surgeon first examines the structures inside the knee joint to assess the cause of the problem. (gomberamd.com)
  • After the repair, the knee joint is carefully examined for bleeding or any other damage. (gomberamd.com)
  • The saline is then drained from the knee joint. (gomberamd.com)
  • toes
  • Dislocations can occur in any joint major (shoulder, knees, etc.) or minor (toes, fingers, etc. (wikipedia.org)
  • talus
  • A larger radius, corresponding to a flatter talus, the more the height of the talus and a smaller tibiotalar sector, reflecting less angular coverage of the talus in the tibia, are significantly correlated with ankle instability leading to recurrent ankle sprain. (alliedacademies.org)
  • plantar plate
  • Early clinical results suggest that direct plantar plate repair may be a significant advancement in the reconstruction and realignment of lesser MTP joint instability. (scielo.org.za)
  • 3,7 Careful dissection of the second MTP joint has shown that the plantar plate is the major stabilising structure of the lesser toe due to its central location and multiple attachments. (scielo.org.za)
  • 3,15,16 Instability of the MTP joint, on the other hand, has been linked to the integrity of the plantar plate. (scielo.org.za)
  • Based on cadaveric and surgical findings, as well as the reports of other authors, 9-11,18,26,27 we believe that plantar plate insufficiency is the primary pathologic finding that leads to this MTP joint instability. (scielo.org.za)
  • A recent review article speaks to new knowledge of toe instability and a surgical technique that should be utilized-specifically, repairing the plantar plate. (grapevinept.com)
  • If this plantar plate is torn, due to abuse or trauma, and not repaired, the toe instability becomes worse and typically results in a crossed toe. (grapevinept.com)
  • diagnosis
  • However two simple tests combined show good diagnosis results: a drawer test to test the mobility of the joint, and trying to pull a piece of paper out from under the toe in standing. (grapevinept.com)
  • Diagnosis and Treatment of Medial Patellar Instability - Another. (smith-nephew.com)
  • clinical
  • Also in 2010 a well received and cited study from Dr Manuel F Cusi, of the Sydney School of Medicine, University of Notre Dame published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found positive clinical outcomes for the 76% of patients with sacroiliac joint problems. (getprolo.com)
  • The contribution of the ligamentum teres to the stabilization of the hip joint and the clinical influence of a compromised ligamentum teres are not well known. (springermedizin.de)
  • tibia
  • 1. New calcification abutting the anterior margin of the distal tibia at the tibiotalar joint measuring 5 X 3 mm in diameter. (si-instability.com)
  • surgeon
  • Joint mobility restrictions can be treated in physical therapy by an orthopedic manual therapist, whereas the two latter scenarios usually would require the help of a surgeon. (mossbergpt.com)
