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.
Isolated posterior shoulder instability accounts for approximately 10% of shoulder instability cases. Patients may present after an acute trauma or with insidious onset and associated posterior shoulder pain. Knotless and all-suture anchor devices have become increasing popular and are often used in arthroscopic shoulder instability cases to avoid knot stacks and allow for the ability to re-tension the fixation. This technical note describes our technique for 2-portal posterior labral repair using knotless all-suture anchors with the patient in the lateral decubitus position.
Pain on the top of the foot can occur from injury or as a side effect of a medical condition. You may also experience swelling, numbness, tingling, or burning—depending on the cause of your foot pain. Conditions such as osteoarthritis, extensor tendonitis, and gout can cause pain on the top of the foot.
Researchers suggest changing gold standard of spine surgery from operative microscope to 3D exoscope
Researchers and neurosurgeons at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) retrospectively compared the operative microscope to the 3D exoscope in a recent study published in World Neurosurgery and found better outcomes among both surgeons and patients when using the exoscope.
The shoulder is a mobile and complex joint that is prone to dislocation and injury. Several types of shoulder surgery can address and correct various shoulder symptoms.
