  • Quadriceps exercise relieves pain in knee osteoarthritis

    A quadriceps isometric contraction exercise method is effective for relieving pain in knee osteoarthritis (OA), according to a study published online May 25 in the International Journal of Rheumatic Diseases.


    Lanfeng Huang, from the Second Hospital of Jilin University in Changchun, China, and colleagues enrolled 250 patients with a confirmed diagnosis of knee OA and randomized them to an exercise treatment test group (128 patients) and a traditional treatment control group (122 patients). The test group used quadriceps isometric contraction exercise, while the control group used local physical therapy and oral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

  • After hip-replacement surgery, medication use decreases

    A new study, published November 15, in the journal Pain provides information on the trajectories of prescription drug use before and after hip-replacement surgery—total hip arthroplasty (THA), one of the most common types of joint replacement surgery. Hip- replacement surgery is commonly followed by long-term reductions in the use of prescription drugs for pain and insomnia. Source: […]

  • Prevalence of Total Hip and Knee Replacement in the United States

    Descriptive epidemiology of total joint replacement procedures is limited to annual procedure volumes (incidence). The prevalence of the growing number of individuals living with a total hip or total knee replacement is currently unknown. Our objective was to estimate the prevalence of total hip and total knee replacement in the United States. Source: JBJS Read […]

  • The use of bisphosphonate drugs is associated with an increased risk of atypical hip fractures

    The use of bisphosphonates, a group of drugs used to prevent hip breakages in women with osteoporosis, is associated with an increased risk of atypical fractures in this joint, understood as those that occur in less frequent locations. It has been established thus in the PhD thesis by Javier Gorricho-Mendívil, a graduate in pharmacy, and […]

  • Findings suggest nonagenarians should be considered for THA

    Although results of this retrospective cohort study revealed more comorbidities in patients 90 years and older who underwent total hip arthroplasty compared with younger patients, nonagenarians had comparable rates of deep vein thrombosis, infection and pulmonary embolism. However, investigators cited the higher readmission rates of the oldest patients as need for closer postoperative follow-up. Source: […]

  • Getting the perfect fit for artificial hips

    When a patient receives a new hip, it is usually adjusted only approximately to leg length. Greater accuracy requires a more precise measuring process as well as adjustable implants. Now, a new type of measurement method coupled with a modular implant should allow orthopedic surgeons to precisely calibrate leg length after the operation so it […]
