Mechanical considerations in impaction bone grafting. (1/469)

In impaction grafting of contained bone defects after revision joint arthroplasty the graft behaves as a friable aggregate and its resistance to complex forces depends on grading, normal load and compaction. Bone mills in current use produce a distribution of particle sizes more uniform than is desirable for maximising resistance to shear stresses. We have performed experiments in vitro using morsellised allograft bone from the femoral head which have shown that its mechanical properties improve with increasing normal load and with increasing shear strains (strain hardening). The mechanical strength also increases with increasing compaction energy, and with the addition of bioglass particles to make good the deficiency in small and very small fragments. Donor femoral heads may be milled while frozen without affecting the profile of the particle size. Osteoporotic femoral heads provide a similar grading of sizes, although fewer particles are obtained from each specimen. Our findings have implications for current practice and for the future development of materials and techniques.  (+info)

Total joint replacement: implication of cancelled operations for hospital costs and waiting list management. (2/469)

OBJECTIVE: To identify aspects of provision of total joint replacements which could be improved. DESIGN: 10 month prospective study of hospital admissions and hospital costs for patients whose total joint replacement was cancelled. SETTING: Information and Waiting List Unit, Musgrave Park Regional Orthopaedic Service, Belfast. PATIENTS: 284 consecutive patients called for admission for total joint replacement. MAIN MEASURES: Costs of cancellation of operation after admission in terms of hotel and opportunity costs. RESULTS: 28(10%) planned operations were cancelled, 27 of which were avoidable cancellations. Five replacement patients were substituted on the theatre list, leaving 22(8%) of 232 operating theatre opportunities unused. Patients seen at assessment clinics within two months before admission had a significantly higher operation rate than those admitted from a routine waiting list (224/232(97%) v 32/52(62%), x2 = 58.6, df = 1; p < 0.005). Mean duration of hospital stay in 28 patients with cancelled operations was 1.92 days. Operating theatre opportunity costs were 73% of the total costs of cancelled total joint replacements. CONCLUSION: Patients on long waiting lists for surgery should be reassessed before admission to avoid wasting theatre opportunities, whose cost is the largest component of the total costs of cancelled operations.  (+info)

Extensible endoprostheses of the humerus after resection of bone tumours. (3/469)

We carried out extensible endoprosthetic replacement of the proximal or total humerus in 18 children aged between six and 12 years, after resection of primary bone tumours mainly for osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma. In 11 patients we performed 44 lengthening procedures, with an average of two per child annually and a mean total extension of 29.9 mm per patient. We were able to achieve lengthening of the operated limb with few complications and a mean functional rating of 79.3% according to the Enneking system. Progressive lengthening of these prostheses does not adversely affect the overall function of the arm, and superior subluxation of the head of the prosthesis has not been a problem.  (+info)

Screening for Staphylococcus epidermidis markers discriminating between skin-flora strains and those responsible for infections of joint prostheses. (4/469)

Fifty-four Staphylococcus epidermidis strains responsible for infections of joint prostheses and 23 strains isolated from skin flora were studied for markers of virulence, to discriminate invasive strains from normal flora. They were screened for binding to polystyrene and matrix proteins and for the presence of staphylococcal genes involved in adhesion. The ica operon involved in biofilm formation was the only marker discriminating between these 2 categories of strains.  (+info)

Silicone lymphadenopathy mimicking a lymphoma in a patient with a metatarsophalangeal joint prosthesis. (5/469)

With lymph node enlargement, the possibility of a malignant process such as metastatic carcinoma or lymphoma needs to be excluded. This report describes a 47 year old woman with inguinal lymph node enlargement initially suspicious for lymphoma. Fine needle aspiration findings favoured reactive hyperplasia, but a malignant process could not be excluded. The final histological diagnosis was a foreign body granulomatous inflammatory response as a result of regionally disseminated silicone particles from an over looked metatarsophalangeal joint prosthesis. Because of the large number of joint prostheses world wide, it should be kept in mind that migration of wear particles can create granulomatous inflammation and node enlargement.  (+info)

The management of local complications of total hip replacement by the McKee-Farrar technique. (6/469)

One thousand and forty-two McKee-Farrar prostheses of the present design inserted in Norwich from January 1965 to December 1972 have been reviewed retrospectively to determine the incidence of complications needing revision. Of prostheses implanted for more than two years, 6-6 per cent needed revision for loosening (cup 3-5 per cent; stem 2-2 per cent; both components 0-9 per cent). Of the total number, 2-3 per cent became infected and 1-9 per cent dislocated. Most dislocations needed only a single closed reduction but 0-8 per cent were revised. The outcome of revision operations was also assessed. Of revisions for loosening, 40 per cent needed no further operation but 23 per cent required excision; pelvic fracture or bone destruction around the components made success unlikely. Revisions for dislocation were disappointing. Of all revisions 17 per cent became infected. Excision arthroplasty is better than a series of failed revisions in an elderly patient.  (+info)

The Walldius hinge arthroplasty. (7/469)

Eighty-three Walldius arthroplasties, performed by one surgeon as salvage operation on the knee joint between 1966 and 1972, were independently reviewed. The fifty-seven living patients with sixty-seven arthroplasties were interviewed and examined and the clinical records of the deceased patients were inspected. Sixty-seven arthroplasties (81 per cent) were successful and sixteen failed (19 per cent). Acrylic cement was used to secure the prosthesis on eight occasions only. There were two primary infections (2-4 per cent) and two delayed (2-4 per cent). Major loosening occurred in three arthroplasties (3-6 per cent). Minor loosening was compatible with a good result. Arthrodesis was successful on the two occasions on which it became necessary to remove the implant. There were no disasters. On the basis of these results it is considered that the Walldius arthroplasty can justifiably be offered as an alternative to primary arthrodesis of the knee.  (+info)

Link arthroplasty of the metacarpo-phalangeal joints. A preliminary report of a new method. (8/469)

Link arthroplasty is a system of joint replacement in which the joint is left almost intact with no great removal of bone. It is based on a two-piece self-locking hinge slotted into the metacarpal head and phalangeal shaft. The operation is simple and no special instruments are needed. The preliminary follow-up of fifty-four metacarpo-phalangeal joint replacements showed thirty-five good and sixteen fair results.  (+info)

Joint replacements may fail due to infection, dislocation, peri-prosthetic fracture and loosening. Between 0.4 and 4% of joint replacements are known to be complicated by infection and aseptic loosening 2-18%. Differentiating between infection and aseptic loosening has an important bearing on the ongoing strategy for antimicrobial therapy and surgical intervention, but distinguishing one from the other can be difficult and will often require a battery of clinical and biochemical tests including the use of varying radiological modalities to accurately identify whether problematic joints are infected or aseptically loose. Prompt diagnosis is important due to the development of a biofilm on the surface of the infected prosthesis, which makes treatment difficult. There is no consensus among experts on the ideal imaging technique nor the methodology for image interpretation, but there is an increasing trend to apply hybrid imaging in the investigation of painful joint prosthesis and recent attempts ...

Methods: 17 patients treated with candida prosthetic joint infections in 2 tertiary hospitals in South Korea between 2006 and 2013 were evaluated. 43 Patients with S.aureus prosthetic joint infections and 29 patients with S.epidermidis from the same hospitals were also evaluated. This was a retrospective cohort study, with a follow-up of at least 1year and 6months or until the patient died. Results: Candida and S.epidermidis prosthetic joint infections showed lower level of serum C-reactive protein(CRP)(mg/dL) compared to S.aureus prosthetic joint infections significantly.(median 3.0 vs 3.0 vs 6.0, p=0.029) White blood cell(WBC)(mm3)count from joint fluid of candida prosthetic joint infections was also lower than S.aureus prosthetic joint infections.(median 4045 vs ...
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Obesity increases the risk of deep infection after total joint arthroplasty (TJA). Our objective was to determine whether there may be body mass index (BMI) and weight thresholds indicating a higher prosthetic joint infection rate. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We included all 9,061 primary hip and knee arthroplasties (mean age 70 years, 61% women) performed between March 1996 and December 2013 where the patient had received intravenous cefuroxime (1.5 g) perioperatively. The main exposures of interest were BMI (5 categories: | 24.9, 25-29.9, 30-34.9, 35-39.9, and ≥ 40) and weight (5 categories: | 60, 60-79, 80-99, 100-119, and ≥ 120 kg). Numbers of TJAs according to BMI categories (lowest to highest) were as follows: 2,956, 3,350, 1,908, 633, and 214, respectively. The main outcome was prosthetic joint infection. The mean follow-up time was 6.5 years (0.5-18 years). RESULTS: 111 prosthetic joint infections were observed: 68 postoperative, 16 hematogenous, and 27 of undetermined
Summary Global Markets Directs latest Pharmaceutical and Healthcare disease pipeline guide Prosthetic joint infections - Pipeline Review, H2 2016, provides an overview of the Prosthetic joint infections (Musculoskeletal Disorders) pipeline landscape.

Definition : Implantable prostheses designed for total replacement of the ankle joint. These prostheses may consist of either a combination of a tibial component and talus component prostheses or, more frequently, of advanced designs that include three or more components. Several total ankle joint prostheses are available with different shapes and technologies. A semiconstrained three-component mobile-bearing prosthesis requires resurfacing of the superior ankle, and a semiconstrained cemented prosthesis requires the conversion of the three-bone ankle joint into a two-bone ankle joint by fusing the fibrous union at the distal ends of the tibia and fibula (i.e., tibiofibularis syndesmosis). Total ankle joint prostheses are used in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, as well as after trauma..

For the diagnosis of prosthetic joint infection (PJI) automated BACTEC™ blood culture bottle methods have comparable sensitivity, specificity and a shorter time to positivity than traditional cooked meat enrichment broth methods. We evaluate the culture incubation period required to maximise sensitivity and specificity of microbiological diagnosis, and the ability of BACTEC™ to detect slow growing Propionibacteria spp. Multiple periprosthetic tissue samples taken by a standardised method from 332 patients undergoing prosthetic joint revision arthroplasty were cultured for 14 days, using a BD BACTEC™ instrumented blood culture system, in a prospective study from 1st January to 31st August 2012. The
Normal function of the upper limb is seldom restored after limb-sparing surgery for tumors of the proximal humerus. The literature suggests superior shoulder function is achieved in the short term with reverse total shoulder arthroplasty compared to other techniques when performed for conditions with rotator cuff deficiency. It is unclear whether this superiority is maintained when reverse total shoulder arthroplasty is performed for tumors.. ...
The diagnosis of prosthetic joint infection (PJI) in the routine microbiology laboratory is labour-intensive, but semi-automated methods may be appropriate. We prospectively compared four microbiological culture methods on samples taken at prosthetic joint revision surgery. Automated BACTEC blood culture bottles and cooked meat enrichment broth were the most sensitive methods (87% and 83%, respectively, as compared with fastidious anaerobic broth (57%) and direct plates (39%)); all were highly specific (97-100%). To our knowledge, this is the first prospective study aimed at comparing culture methods in routine use in UK clinical laboratories for the diagnosis of PJI.
TY - JOUR. T1 - A two-stage retention débridement protocol for acute periprosthetic joint infections. AU - Estes, Chris S.. AU - Beauchamp, Chris P.. AU - Clarke, Henry D.. AU - Spangehl, Mark J.. PY - 2010/8. Y1 - 2010/8. N2 - Background: Due to the historically poor infection control rates with débridement and component retention for acute periprosthetic infections we developed a new approach for treating acute periprosthetic total joint infections: initial débridement with prosthesis retention and placement of antibiotic-impregnated cement beads followed by a second débridement within 7 days, at which time the beads are removed and new modular parts inserted. Intravenous antibiotics were used for 6 weeks followed by oral antibiotics. Depending on the clinical situation, antibiotics are discontinued or in selected patients continued indefinitely. Questions/purposes: We determined the ability of this two-stage débridement to control infection. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed the ...

Background:. Intravenous antibiotic infusion is the current standard for prosthetic joint infections (PJIs) management. antibiotic used for PJIs have a good oral bioavailability, especially rifampicin, suggesting that oral and IV route could be as efficient. Our aim was to compare the outcome of PJIs treated by oral antibiotics to those treated intravenously. Methods:. a retrospective survey was done in two reference centers between 2014 and 2016 and included all patients presenting gram-positive PJIs. In these centers, patients suffering from gram-positive PJIs could receive IV or early oral antibiotics regimen (started the day final antibiogram were received). First, we compared these two groups in terms of demographic and infection characteristics. Then, the outcome, judged by the percentage of patient with a relapse or a new infection on the same site during the follow-up, were compared. Results:. Within this period, 87 patients were treated for gram-positive BJIs, 51 (59%) received early ...

Any patient with a joint prosthesis is at a small risk of infection of the prosthesis by the haematogenous route. Early recognition and treatment of infection at any site is important to prevent seeding of the prosthesis. The value of antibiotic prophylaxis has not been established for procedures in which bacteraemia is likely to occur e.g. dental surgery, cystoscopy and surgical procedures on infected tissues. However, antibiotic prophylaxis may be considered for patients at potentially increased risk of haematogenous infection of joint prostheses, such as the immuno compromised and patients with insulin-dependent diabetes, when undergoing procedures with a high incidence of bacteraemia e.g. dental extractions or surgical procedures involving incisions of the oral or gingival mucosa. ...

Total joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which parts of an arthritic or damaged joint are removed and replaced with a metal, plastic or ceramic device called a prosthesis. The prosthesis is designed to replicate the movement of a normal, healthy joint.
Wrist joint replacement is done with an artificial joint (prosthesis) much less often than other joints in the body, such as the knee or the hip.
Replacement medicine is what I refer to as the process of replacing damaged and degenerative joints with prosthetic joints. A prosthetic joint is made of some metal such as titanium and is designed to replace the involved joint. Joint replacement surgery is an orthopedic treatment performed when severe joint pain or dysfunction is not alleviated by less-invasive therapies. The purpose of doing this surgery is to relieve pain, to restore range of motion and to improve ability, leading to the improvement of muscle strength. Joint replacement surgery is becoming more common, with knees and hips replaced most often. As of 2009, about 773,000 Americans have a hip or knee replaced each year. Some of the associated risks and complications of joint replacement therapies includes: heart attack, stroke, blood clots, infections, fracture of the adjacent bone, nerve damage, damage to blood vessels, post surgical persistent pain. The success of prosthetic joint replacement has improved over the years as ...

A knee joint damaged by osteoarthritis may be replaced with an artificial joint. After a general anesthetic is given, the surgeon makes an incision over the damaged knee. The knee cap (patella) may be removed, and the ends of the thigh bone (femur) and shinbone (tibia) are smoothed so that the parts of the artificial joint (prosthesis) can be attached more easily. One part of the artificial joint is inserted into the thigh bone, the other part is inserted into the shinbone, and then the parts are cemented in place.. ...

If a preoperative diagnosis of PJI has been established and the microbiology defined, intraoperative testing for PJI may not be needed. Alternatively, if this is not the case, efforts should focus on determining whether or not the arthroplasty is infected and on defining the infecting microorganism(s). Histopathology is recommended, and when performed as frozen section histopathology, can provide a result during the operative procedure. Multiple periprosthetic tissues should be submitted for aerobic and anaerobic bacterial culture. Definition of the ideal number of periprosthetic tissues to be submitted to bacterial cultures is beyond the scope of this guideline. If implant components are being resected, they may be submitted for sonication, with aerobic and anaerobic bacterial cultures performed on the resultant sonication (or sonicate) fluid. No evidence supports routine fungal and mycobacterial cultures of periprosthetic tissues or sonication fluid. Several studies have examined microbial ...
