Water on the knee is when fluid collects around and inside the knee joint, causing pain and swelling. Also known as knee effusion or fluid on the knee, it can occur whenever there's damage to the joint due to injury or underlying disease, such as arthritis.
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.
5 Reasons Your Knee Still Hurts After Arthroscopy
Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to treat knee conditions, including cartilage injuries, meniscus tears, and ligament problems. Because it uses several small incisions rather than a large one, people tend to return to their activities more quickly and with less pain. But that's not true for everyone.
Implant survivorship 99 percent for young hip arthroplasty patients
Patients younger than 65 years undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) have 99 percent implant survivorship at eight years and have low rates of revision and readmission, according to a study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, held from March 7 to 11 in Las Vegas.
Low sodium levels linked to adverse outcomes after total joint replacement
Patients with low sodium levels before or after total knee or hip arthroplasty are more likely to experience complications and other adverse outcomes, reports a study in The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.
