Swimming isn’t just good exercise, it’s great exercise. That’s thanks to the water itself, which offers buoyancy and resistance that makes it easier on your whole body than other forms of exercise.
No association between previous general infection and prosthetic joint infection after total hip arthroplasty - A national register-based cohort study on 58,449 patients who have osteoarthritis
Prosthetic joint infection (PJI) following total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a serious complication associated with increased risk of death. There is limited knowledge about the association between infection before THA, and risk revision due to PJI. We investigated the association between any previous hospital-diagnosed or community-treated infection 0 to 6 months prior to primary THA and the risk of revision.
A role for artificial intelligence applications inside and outside of the operating theatre: a review of contemporary use associated with total knee arthroplasty
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become involved in many aspects of everyday life, from voice-activated virtual assistants built into smartphones to global online search engines. Similarly, many areas of modern medicine have found ways to incorporate such technologies into mainstream practice. Despite the enthusiasm, robust evidence to support the utility of AI in contemporary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) remains limited. The purpose of this review was to provide an up-to-date summary of the use of AI in TKA and to explore its current and future value.
Surgical Intervention Following a First Traumatic Anterior Shoulder Dislocation is Worthy of Consideration
Up to 60% of patients experience recurrence after a first traumatic anterior shoulder dislocation (FTASD), which is often defined as having experienced either dislocation or subluxation. Thus, surgical intervention following a FTASD is worthy of consideration and is guided by the number of patients that need to receive surgical intervention to prevent one redislocation (i.e., Number Needed to Treat), (subjective) health benefit, complication risk, and costs.
Results published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found patients who underwent anatomic total or reverse shoulder arthroplasty had “significant and rapid” improvements in sleep disturbance after surgery.
Medications, such as anti-inflammatories and injections of corticosteroids or hyaluronic acid, are often prescribed to treat osteoarthritis knee pain. But those aren’t your only options. Natural remedies can also be used to ease knee pain and improve your quality of life, often in combination with conventional treatments
A burning sensation in the hip can be caused by a multitude of conditions like hip bursitis, a pulled muscle, or a pinched nerve. Burning hip pain can feel like a sharp, searing, or achy pain in the upper outer thigh and it often results from inflammation. If it lingers, hip pain can be debilitating and when left untreated, the pain can become so severe that you're unable to walk.
Competing as part of a school activity can be a great way to instill the exercise habit. But parents and coaches know it's not as simple as handing a student a football, pompom or clarinet and saying, "Go play." So, we asked experts for advice on keeping things as safe and healthy as possible. Here's what they said
Hamstring rehabilitation exercises can aid recovery and help prevent future injuries. Rehabilitation protocols typically call for a combination of stretching and strengthening movements.
Short term outcomes (average follow up of 2.4 years) of a constrained acetabular liner in primary and revision total hip arthroplasty.
As instability continues to be a burden post total hip arthroplasty (THA), there has been a controversial discussion on the ideal implant choice. We report here the outcomes of a modern constrained acetabular liner (CAL) system in primary and revision THA at an average follow up of 2.4 years.
