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.
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.
Activity level (AL) recommendations following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) remains controversial. Our purpose was to compare implant survivorship of high (HA) and low activity (LA) patients after primary TJA. We hypothesized that there would be no difference in implant survivorship based on AL.
Hip arthritis results from the breakdown of cartilage within your hip joints, causing hip stiffness and pain that can increase with inactivity, standing, and walking. Although walking can be uncomfortable and difficult with hip arthritis, walking is also incredibly important for maintaining the mobility and strength of your hips.
