The Effect of Joint Line Elevation on In Vivo Knee Kinematics in Bicruciate Retaining Total Knee Arthroplasty

J Knee Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0041-1724132Prior studies have reported a negative effect on both clinical outcomes and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) following joint line elevation (JLE) in cruciate-retaining (CR) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and posterior stabilized (PS) TKA designs. This experimental study was aimed to quantify the effect of JLE on in vivo knee kinematics in patients with bicruciate retaining (BCR) TKA during strenuous activities. Thirty unilateral BCR TKA patients were evaluated during single-leg deep lunge and sit-to-stand using a validated combined computer tomography and dual fluoroscopic imaging system. Correlation analysis was performed to quantify any correlations between JLE and in vivo kinematics, as well as PROMS. There was a significant negative correlation between JLE and maximum flexion angle during single-leg deep lunge (ρ = −0.34, p = 0.02), maximum varus joint angles during single-leg deep lunge (ρ = −0.37, p = 0.04), and sit-to-stand (ρ = −0.29, p = 0.05). There was a significant negative correlation between JLE and Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) score (ρ = −0.39, p = 0.01) and knee disability and osteoarthritis outcome score physical function (KOOS-PS; ρ = −0.33, p = 0.03). The JLE that yields a significan...

Conclusion: It appears that the knee OA pain and disability can be decreased after a dual-frequency LLLT applied to acupoints (SP9, SP10, and EX-LE2). The clinical efficacy of LLLT is highly related to the therapeutic settings of the laser apparatus; hence, more clinical trials with diffident parameter settings are needed to be further clarified.

AbstractOsteoarthritis is a significant cause of chronic pain in the elderly population with hip osteoarthritis as one of the main causes of functional disability and joint pain in adults older than 55 years. Recently, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections have been introduced for treatment of osteoarthritis. The aim of this systematic review is to assess its effectiveness in the management of hip osteoarthritis. We performed a search of the literature for published prospective studies that assessed the effectiveness of PRP injections in the treatment of hip osteoarthritis, with a minimum follow-up of 3 months. Primary out...

This study was undertaken to determine whether treatment with ticagrelor was associated with a lower risk of OA.MethodsWe conducted a 1:2 propensity score –matching analysis using data from 2011–2017 in the Optum Clinformatics Data Mart. Patients who had received either ticagrelor or clopidogrel for ≥90 days were included in our study, and patients with a prior diagnosis of OA or inflammatory arthritis were excluded. OA was identified using Inte rnational Classification of Diseases codes. The primary outcome was the time to diagnosis of OA after treatment with ticagrelor versus clopidogrel.ResultsOur propens...

Semin Musculoskelet Radiol 2020; 24: 355-366 DOI: 10.1055/s-0040-1708822Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common causes of disability throughout the world. Current therapeutic strategies are aimed at preventing the development and delaying the progression of OA, as well as repairing or replacing worn articular surfaces, because the regeneration of lost hyaline articular cartilage is not currently a clinically feasible option. Imaging is useful in formulating treatment strategies in patients at risk for OA, allowing assessment of risk factors, the degree of preexisting tissue damage, and posttreatment monitoring. Magne...

Knee osteoarthritis (OA) is a leading cause of late life pain and disability, and non-Hispanic black (NHB) adults experience greater OA-related pain and disability than non-Hispanic whites (NHWs). Recent evidence implicates psychosocial stress, cognitive-attentional processes, and altered central pain processing as contributors to greater OA-related pain and disability among NHBs. To address these ethnic/race disparities, this clinical trial will test whether a mindfulness intervention (Breathing and Attention Training, BAT) combined with transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) will enhance pain modulatory balance a...

We examined 16 review articles and 11 randomized controlled trials published in the last 5  years on the clinical efficacy of acupuncture in adults with CMP conditions. The available evidence suggests that acupuncture does have short-term pain relief benefits for patients with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis and chronic low back pain and is a safe and reasonable referral option. Acupunct ure may also have a beneficial role for fibromyalgia. However, the available evidence does not support the use of acupuncture for treating hip osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.SummaryThe majority of studies concluded the superi...
