Preoperative frailty predicts postoperative pain after total knee arthroplasty in older patients: a prospective observational study
Preoperative frailty in older patients is an important risk factor for both acute and chronic pain after TKA, suggesting that frailty assessment should become a necessary procedure before operation, especially in older patients.
Gentle stretching and other low impact exercises can strengthen the muscles that support your knee joint. Start by stretching your heel, calf, quadriceps, and hamstrings, and work up to half squats, calf raises, and other leg lift variations.
Operating room waste is disposed of in landfill sites, recycled, or undergoes costly, energy-intensive incineration processes. By assessing the quantity and recyclability of waste in primary hip (THA) and knee arthroplasty (TKA), we aim to identify strategies to improve sustainability.
Possible causes of right hip pain include muscle injury, osteoarthritis, and pelvic floor conditions. In females, it can also occur during pregnancy. Treatment may involve pain relief, stretching, and exercise.
People used to have to spend a night in the hospital following a knee replacement, but improvements in technology, surgery and pain management have made it possible to undergo the procedure in the morning and be back home by the evening
