Survivorship and radiological analysis of the standard Souter-Strathclyde total elbow arthroplasty. (1/499)

We undertook a radiological analysis of 186 standard Souter implants to determine survivorship and to analyse the pattern of failure in those needing revision. The implants had been inserted as a primary procedure in patients with rheumatoid arthritis of the elbow at our hospital over the last 12 years. Taking revision as an endpoint, the survivorship after 12 years was 87%. If, however, revision and loosening, defined as the Hindex value equivalent to demarcation of 1 mm around the whole implant, are also included, the survivorship falls to 80%. Of the 24 implants revised, 18 (75%) were for problems with the humeral component, three (12.5%) with the ulnar component and three (12.5%) for instability. Loosening of the humeral component occurred when the implant extended into the humerus, with the tip moving anteriorly on to the anterior humeral cortex. Our study indicates that loosening can be predicted by the rate of change in this angle of extension of the prosthesis.  (+info)

Phenotypic and genomic variation among Staphylococcus epidermidis strains infecting joint prostheses. (2/499)

We studied the SmaI and SstII macrorestriction patterns of 54 Staphylococcus epidermidis strains isolated from 14 patients infected following the implantation of joint prostheses. Multiple strains from pus and infected tissue specimens of each patient were selected on the basis of different colony morphologies and drug resistance patterns. The same criteria were used to select 23 S. epidermidis strains from hand swabs of eight healthy individuals. For 10 of the 14 patients, all the intrapatient strains appeared to be closely or possibly related, whereas related strains were detected in the skin flora of only one of the eight healthy individuals. This observation suggests that, in most cases, the patients were infected by a single S. epidermidis clone which subsequently underwent rearrangements that yielded derivatives with divergent phenotypes and, occasionally, divergent macrorestriction patterns. The four patients whose specimens contained unrelated S. epidermidis strains were probably infected with several polyclonal strains.  (+info)

Total knee arthroplasty in bony ankylosis in gross flexion. (3/499)

Between June 1993 and December 1994, we performed total knee arthroplasty (TKA) on 27 knees in 24 patients with spontaneous bony ankylosis in severe flexion. The mean age at operation was 43.5 years (30 to 60). No patient had preoperative pain. Three were unable to walk and 21 could manage less than five blocks. The mean duration of the ankylosis was 18.7 years (13 to 25) and its mean position was 105 degree flexion (75 to 135). The preoperative Hospital for Special Surgery Knee Score of 60 points was improved to 87 at the final follow-up three to five years later. All knees were free from pain. The mean range of active flexion in 24 knees was 97 degrees (78 to 115) and the mean arc of movement 91 degrees (78 to 98). The mean fixed flexion deformity was 6 degrees (0 to 25) and the extension lag 8 degrees (0 to 25). Angular deformity was corrected to between 0 degrees and 10 degrees of valgus. Four patients were able to walk one block and 20 five to seven blocks. Thirteen knees (48%) showed some necrosis at the skin edge; one knee required arthrodesis and another resection arthroplasty. One had a recurrence of tuberculous infection requiring arthrodesis. One patient had a rupture of the quadriceps tendon. To date no prosthesis has required revision for loosening. Radiolucency of 1 mm or less about the tibial prosthesis was observed at follow-up in four of the 24 knees. Our results have shown that one-stage TKA and skeletal traction after operation can achieve correction of severe flexion deformity of the knee with marked improvement in the function and quality of life.  (+info)

Intra-articular morphine and/or bupivacaine after total knee replacement. (4/499)

The postoperative analgesic effects of intra-articular injections of bupivacaine and/or morphine were examined prospectively in 437 patients who had total knee replacement for osteoarthritis. They were divided randomly into four groups. Group I received 10 mg of morphine (1 ml) and 9 ml of saline, group II received 10 ml of bupivacaine (2.5 mg/ml), group III received 10 ml of saline, and group IV received 10 mg of morphine (1 ml) and 9 ml of bupivacaine (2.5 mg/ml). All analgesics administered in the first 24 hours after operation were recorded. The patients rated their pain on the McGill-Melzack scale at 1, 6, 12 and 24 hours. No significant differences were found between any of the groups in the use of Demoral and/or Toradol in 24 hours, the length of stay in hospital or the pain rating at 1, 6, 12 or 24 hours. Patients in groups I and IV, whose injections included morphine, used significantly more morphine in the first 24 postoperative hours than did groups II or III.  (+info)

Patients were allocated randomly to receive one of the three blood substitutes to obtain moderate intraoperative haemodilution. Blood loss and packed red cell infusion was the same in each group. A greater amount of gelatin was given (1.5 times the measured blood loss) because of its shorter half-life. There was a statistically significant but clinically negligible decrease in platelets count, prothrombin time and fibrinogen, and an increase in bleeding time in all groups. Platelets were slightly but significantly lower after HES. Haemodilution was comparable between groups. TEG showed a state of hypercoagulability in the gelatin group with a significant decrease in r, r + k and an increase in alpha angle.  (+info)

Tracking adhesion factors in Staphylococcus caprae strains responsible for human bone infections following implantation of orthopaedic material. (7/499)

Ten Staphylococcus caprae strains isolated from four patients and responsible for bone infections following implantation of orthopaedic material were compared to four S. caprae strains collected from milk samples of healthy goats. The following characteristics were investigated: Smal patterns, hybridization patterns with pBA2 (ribotypes), slime production, adhesion to matrix proteins (fibrinogen, fibronectin, collagen) and the staphylococcal adhesion genes (fnbA, clfA, cna, atlE, ica, fbe). None of the characteristics enabled us to distinguish the human strains from the goat strains. Slime was occasionally produced by S. caprae strains but all of them carried nucleotide sequences hybridizing at low stringency with the following genes: atlE encoding a S. epidermidis autolysin binding vitronectin and responsible for the primary adhesion to polystyrene, ica operon involved in the biosynthesis of a S. epidermidis extracellular polysaccharide, and the part of clfA encoding the serine-aspartate repeated region of a S. aureus cell-wall fibrinogen-binding protein.  (+info)

Primary endoprosthesis in comminuted humeral head fractures in patients over 60 years of age. (8/499)

The purpose of this study was to determine the early subjective and functional results after primary endoprosthesis replacement for comminuted humeral head fractures in patients over 60 years old. Twenty comminuted humeral head fractures in 20 patients were treated primarily (within 3.5 days (range 0-17 days) with a Neer II modular shoulder prosthesis, and were then followed up for an average of 32. 5 months (range 17-44 months). The average age of the patients was 77 years (range 63-91 years). The average post-operative Constant score was 52 points (range 30-76). This was significantly less than that of the contralateral side where the score was 80 points (range 53-100), P=0.0001. The average active abduction was 90 degrees (contralateral 157 degrees ) and active flexion 99 degrees (contralateral 161 degrees ). Eighteen of the 20 patients experienced relief of pain and would accept the same procedure again.  (+info)

Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is mainly indicated for people who have lost the function of their rotator cuff muscles. This generally is due to massive rotator cuff tears, but can be due to fractures or failure of prior surgeries. By reversing the biomechanics of the shoulder the deltoid muscle is better able to compensate for the loss of the rotator cuff muscles and patients can achieve greatly decreased pain and improved function of their shoulder.. Alternatives to reverse total shoulder arthroplasty include: Non-operative management with non-steroidal anti inflammatory medications, physical therapy, and steroid injections; Shoulder arthroscopy with debridement and biceps tenotomy; Hemiarthroplasty (partial shoulder replacement; Shoulder arthrodesis (fusion); and Total Shoulder arthroplasty.. The complication rate of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is higher than that of standard total shoulder arthroplasty. Risks of surgery include but are not limited to: periprosthetic fracture, ...

N2 - The concept of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty was first introduced in the 1970s for the treatment of arthritic rotator cuff deficient shoulders. All of these implants were clinical failures and removed from the market. In April 2004, the FDA allowed reintroduction of a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty into the USA. We discuss the frequently seen complications after reverse total shoulder arthroplasty and make some recommendations to help prevent these occurrences. The reverse total shoulder continues to evolve in an attempt to reduce the incidence of complication. The implant is currently in its third generation and early promising results have been reported..

BACKGROUND: Considerable interest has been focused on the design of the glenoid component used in total shoulder arthroplasty in order to reduce the risk of loosening. One design-related feature that has attracted attention is whether to use pegged or keeled cemented glenoid components. The main purpose of this study was to compare the fixation of cemented keeled glenoid components with that of cemented in-line pegged glenoid components. METHODS: In a prospective randomized study, we compared the stability of cemented, all-polyethylene, keeled glenoid components and cemented, all-polyethylene, in-line three-pegged glenoid components by radiostereometric analysis. Twenty-seven shoulders in twenty-five patients with osteoarthritis (twenty-two shoulders had primary and five shoulders had secondary osteoarthritis) were included. There were sixteen women and nine men, and the mean age was sixty-four years. Radiostereometric analysis and conventional radiographs were carried out at five days, at four ...

BACKGROUND: Clinical experience suggests that component impingement can lead to eccentric implant loading and thereby cause glenoid loosening in conventional total shoulder arthroplasty. This study tests the hypothesis that certain implant component positioning configurations may lead to impingement within the physiological range of motion. METHODS: A rigid-body model of the shoulder comprising the scapula and humerus was constructed. Within this 3D model, a commercially available total shoulder arthroplasty implant was positioned according to manufacturer guidelines. The configuration was modified around this default position to investigate the associated angle of inferior and superior impingement during glenohumeral elevation, as well as in lateral impingement during axial rotation at both 0 degrees and 60 degrees of glenohumeral elevation. Glenoid component size, version, inclination and inferior-superior offset as well as humeral component size, torsion, inclination, offset and height were ...

Introduction: Fracture sequelae (FS) of the proximal humerus is a challenging scenario in shoulder surgery. Despite they have been traditionally treated with hemiarthroplasty (HA), the use of reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) has been recently introduced. However, there are no studies comparing the results of HA and RSA in FS. The purpose of this study was to compare the functional and quality of life-related outcomes, and complications in the treatment of proximal humeral FS between HA and RSA.Materials and methods: A therapeutic prospective non-randomized comparative study was conducted. All consecutive patients with diagnosis of FS after non-operative treatment of proximal humeral ...

Total shoulder replacement is a surgery for those who have a severe cuff care. This replacement can result in pain and limited motion but for some patients may be the only solution. total shoulder replacements is a process which utilizes a plastic cup fit into your shoulder socket joint and a metal ball to represent the ball, in the ball and socket joint. These two items replace your existing ball and socket joint to provide better functionality and movement.. Who qualifies for a total shoulder replacement?. Total shoulder replacement is only recommended if you have endstage shoulder arthritis that cannot be repaired through any other means. It can also be recommended for people who have a cuff tear arthropathy, or those who have had a previous shoulder replacement surgery that was unsuccessful. People who experienced severe shoulder pain and have tried all other nonsurgical treatments but found no relief may also be candidates for the surgical procedure.. What happens during surgery?.

THURSDAY, March 14, 2019 (HealthDay News) - Underweight patients have a high number of adverse events and postoperative infections after total shoulder arthroplasty, even compared with super morbidly obese patients, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held from March 12 to 16 in Las Vegas.. Taylor Ottesen, of the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut, and colleagues evaluated data on 15,725 patients from the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database who underwent total shoulder arthroplasty from 2005 to 2016. The authors sought to evaluate the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and adverse events after total shoulder arthroplasty.. The researchers categorized patients according to their BMI: underweight (,18.5 kg/m²), normal weight (18.5 to 24.9 kg/m²), overweight (25 to 29.9 kg/m²), obese (30 to 40 kg/m²), morbidly obese (40 to 50 kg/m²), and super morbidly obese (,50 kg/m²).

Hypothesis: We hypothesized that the malpositioning of the humeral component can preclude the long-term success of anatomical total shoulder arthroplasty. The goal of this study was to evaluate the mechanical consequences of superior and inferior malpositioning of the humeral head. Materials and methods: A numerical musculoskeletal model of the shoulder joint allowing natural humeral head translation was used to simulate a loaded abduction movement controlled by muscular activation. An inferior and superior malpositioning of 5 mm were compared to an optimal positioning. Impingements, articular contact pattern, and cement stress were evaluated. Results: Inferior malpositioning of the humeral head induced impingement and limited the abduction level, while superior malpositioning increased the subluxation risk. Both inferior and superior malpositioning increased the stress level within the cement mantle. Discussion: This numerical study highlights the importance of an anatomical reconstruction of ...

Reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) was developed as a salvage procedure, but is now used in the primary treatment of a number of conditions. RSA can be used to treat conditions that disrupt Matsens center line, and this concept is illustrated and discussed. The restoration of the rotation point of the humeral head back towards the center line after RSA is illustrated. The surgical technique begins with a standard humeral head cut. Then the glenoid surface is prepared, the glenosphere baseplate is implanted, and the glenosphere is applied and fixed to the baseplate. The humeral component is placed, and the joint is reduced to ensure that adequate tension has been restored to the shoulder. The next case demonstrates RSA for eccentric osteoarthritis and glenoid bone loss. The possible need to alter the version of the baseplate and the
A greater understanding of reverse total shoulder arthroplasty (RTSA) in terms of articular contact mechanics and wear is essential for the optimization of current surgical technique and future implant design. Despite the prevalence of RTSA for shoulder reconstruction, there is little information in current literature regarding the effects of changes in implant parameters on articular contact mechanics and wear. The present work describes the use of in-vitro cadaveric studies, a computational model of the articular contact surfaces, and the development and implementation of a wear simulation strategy to assess RTSA contact mechanics and wear. The articular loading characteristics of RTSA were assessed using an in-vitro shoulder joint motion simulator and a custom instrumented implant, including the effects of changes in implant configuration. Decreasing neck-shaft angle and cup depth was not found to affect joint load or muscle forces. Increasing glenosphere diameter increased adduction range of motion
We have heard much about Medicares pronouncement surrounding mandatory or voluntary participation in the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Program (CJR). Changing hospital processes through adoption of evidence-based care standards and protocols can improve the quality of care for patients.
Polyethylene (PE). The Australian Hip Registry noted in their annual report of 2010 that there has been increasing use of modified PE. The use of this material has been associated with a reduction in the risk of revision in primary total conventional hip replacement.6. Crosslinked PE has earned its place in arthroplasty with adequate clinical trials to warrant its use with confidence.7-11 This process of low radiation crosslinking was started in South Africa by Grobbelaar and co-workers who recently published the longest follow-up to date on crosslinked PE in THA. They reported a seven to eight times reduction in PE wear over a mean of 20 years. It has been shown in that series and various literature reports that up to 1 mm socket wear is acceptable. Thereafter the failure rate increases rapidly due to pain, interface failure and osteolysis. In the non-crosslinked PE form, this will take place in approximately ten years, but after crosslinking, the socket life expectancy is increased seven- to ...

Osteoarthritis of the shoulder is not as common as the knee or hip, but it is not uncommon and can be quite debilitating for older athletes. Treatment options include debridement, capsular release, microfracture, glenoid resurfacing, or total shoulder arthroplasty. Again it is important to differentiate the athlete and desired goals in order to determine the best treatment. For the older recreational athlete (65 and older), total shoulder arthroplasty results in excellent long term survival rates and high level of return to sport. For younger patients (under 50) almost 50 per cent reported unsatisfactory results in on research study after total shoulder arthroplasty and survival rates were much lower than in their older counterparts. For the younger but still mature athlete, the less invasive treatments are thus more common. Though the research is inconclusive as to which option is best for this population, biological glenoid resurfacing is the most recent promising treatment added to the list ...

Dear Editor, dear Authors:. We read the case report of Wendling et al [1] with interest. We thank the Authors for sharing their experience, and we would like to congratulate with them. Even if with low-energy trauma in elderly patients, these cases are of interest because of the frequently multiple injuries and medical comorbidities that make the case difficult to treat, for the orthopedic surgeons as well as for our colleagues the anesthesiologists. We had a similar experience with a bilateral four-part fracture of the proximal humerus in a female in her late 70s, and we were able to carry out a simultaneous bilateral reverse shoulder arthroplasty (RSA) thanks to stability of vital parameters during the first procedure. Our patient was barely younger than yours, had no major medical comorbidities, and had no concomitant hip fracture: thats the reason why we could managed a simultaneous bilateral RSA, and we published it as the first case described, to our knowledge, in Literature [2], a few ...

BACKGROUND: Glenoid component loosening after total shoulder arthroplasty is one of the most common causes of failure. A hybrid glenoid that uses peripherally cemented pegs and a central press-fit post may improve implant longevity. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We asked, compared with polyethylene pegged glenoid implants, do hybrid glenoid implants with a titanium post provide (1) better ingrowth with fewer radiolucencies, (2) better outcome and pain scores, and (3) lower risk of complications and revisions? METHODS: Between 2009 and 2010, 126 patients underwent primary total shoulder arthroplasty for osteoarthritis. Patients were included in this retrospective study if they consented for inclusion in a shoulder arthroplasty registry, had complete baseline and 2-year data, and had complete radiographs. Eighty-three (67%) were available at an average followup of 3.2 years (range, 24-45 months). Forty received a conventional all-polyethylene pegged glenoid and 43 received a hybrid component. During the period in

  • Revision total knee replacement takes longer than a standard total knee replacement and has a slightly higher complication rate. (
  • 20 total joint replacements were carried out with MAKO robotic system using extended software version, which includes both acetabular and femoral guidance. (
  • Scott RD (1979) Prosthetic Replacement of the Patello-Femoral Joint. (
  • Nowadays the total knee arthroplasty uses cobalt-chromium as material for the femoral and tibial components. (
  • Hip Resurfacing: An Alternative to Conventional Hip Replacement? (
  • Reverse Shoulder Arthroplasty is designed to compensate for loss of function of the shoulder due to damage to the rotator cuff. (
  • Osteoporosis does not typically cause knee pain, deformity, or inflammation and is not a reason to perform knee replacement Other major causes of debilitating pain include meniscus tears, cartilage defects, and ligament tears. (
  • Knee replacement can relieve pain and allow you to be more active. (
  • Followed by rehabilitation, hip replacement can relieve pain and restore range of motion and function of your hip joint. (
  • Shoulder Arthroplasty is a treatment option that can relieve pain and restore function. (
  • Joint replacement is a type of joint reconstruction (arthroplasty) in which pieces of a joint are replaced with artificial implants. (
  • Typically one sees implantation of artificial joints (arthroplasty) in hip and knee joints since these joints are subjected to the greatest load and wear. (
  • A hip replacement , also known as a total hip arthroplasty, is an operation to replace a damaged hip with an artificial joint. (
  • The materials used in modern joint replacements are carefully designed to enable the artificial joint to move much like, if not exactly like, a normal joint. (
  • For more information and to find out if you are a good candidate for a shoulder joint replacement, contact one of our many St. Louis or Kansas City orthopedic practices today. (
  • Revisions are also carried out if the primary knee replacement fails due to recurrent dislocation, infection, fracture or very rarely, ongoing pain and significant leg length discrepancy. (
  • Infection as a complication of total knee-replacement arthroplasty. (
  • Of 4171 total knee arthroplasties that were performed at our institution from 1973 to 1987, sixty-seven were followed by infection. (
