According to published results, gluteal tendinopathy was commonly observed in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty with the posterior approach and was associated with inferior patient-reported outcomes at 1 year after surgery.
Preoperative frailty predicts postoperative pain after total knee arthroplasty in older patients: a prospective observational study
Preoperative frailty in older patients is an important risk factor for both acute and chronic pain after TKA, suggesting that frailty assessment should become a necessary procedure before operation, especially in older patients.
Isolated posterior shoulder instability accounts for approximately 10% of shoulder instability cases. Patients may present after an acute trauma or with insidious onset and associated posterior shoulder pain. Knotless and all-suture anchor devices have become increasing popular and are often used in arthroscopic shoulder instability cases to avoid knot stacks and allow for the ability to re-tension the fixation. This technical note describes our technique for 2-portal posterior labral repair using knotless all-suture anchors with the patient in the lateral decubitus position.
Pain on the top of the foot can occur from injury or as a side effect of a medical condition. You may also experience swelling, numbness, tingling, or burning—depending on the cause of your foot pain. Conditions such as osteoarthritis, extensor tendonitis, and gout can cause pain on the top of the foot.
The shoulder is a mobile and complex joint that is prone to dislocation and injury. Several types of shoulder surgery can address and correct various shoulder symptoms.
Gentle stretching and other low impact exercises can strengthen the muscles that support your knee joint. Start by stretching your heel, calf, quadriceps, and hamstrings, and work up to half squats, calf raises, and other leg lift variations.
Osteoarthritis (OA) affects more than 500 million people worldwide. The disease is age-related, and usually starts to affect people in middle age. For elderly people, OA is the most common cause of disability, resulting in pain, limited mobility, and impacts on participation in both social and work contexts.
Sleep can give athletes an edge over competitors, but few recognize how fundamental sleep is to performance
A healthy sleep pattern can be a stealthy game plan for athletes to gain an edge over their opponents. Only a few top elite athletes know the secret of early bedtimes for optimal performance.
Operating room waste is disposed of in landfill sites, recycled, or undergoes costly, energy-intensive incineration processes. By assessing the quantity and recyclability of waste in primary hip (THA) and knee arthroplasty (TKA), we aim to identify strategies to improve sustainability.
The purpose of this study was to quantify progression in of chondral and meniscal injuries between primary and revision ACL surgery.
