Treatment for osteoarthritis ranges from over-the-counter medication to complete knee replacements. But people who live with osteoarthritis may benefit from a new procedure called genicular artery embolization (GAE).
All-inside meniscal repair is relatively successful when performed with concurrent anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, according to a study published in the June 21 issue of the Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery.
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.
