The research undertaken in the University of Pittsburgh and University Graduate School of Medicine Kobe explains that unloader brace enhances the medial compartment dynamic joint space (DJS) during gait and helps to reduce pain. This research assessed the impact of the unloader brace on medial compartment DJS during gait, whereas concurrently measuring ground reaction force (GRF) in varus knee OA subjects applying a highly accurate biplane radiography system which enabled continuous estimation of DJS from heel strike within the midstance phase of gait.
According to the results of a recent systematic review and meta-analysis, the femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and early hip osteoarthritis (OA) can be effectively diagnosed using the fibronectin-aggrecan complex (FAC) and cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP). Early diagnosis and treatment of patients with these hip lesions may prevent considerable hip morbidity, and this diagnosis can be made with the help of reliable biomarkers.
According to recent research results published in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research, individuals who have stiffer gait walking patterns showed higher chances of second total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The contralateral limb after unilateral TKA associated with altered and asymmetrical movement patterns following the unilateral TKA which overload the contralateral joints.
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Oral Rehabilitation, the muscle tenderness scores found to have significant associations with Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) features and co‐morbid pain states, which may indicate connections with disease severity. The total tenderness score (TTS) is regularly employed in headache practice and presents useful information.
The investigators, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Cleveland Clinic, Ohio found out that a periarticular injection of liposomal bupivacaine with an adductor canal block (LB+ACB) exhibited an equal efficacy for postoperative TKA pain control as the femoral nerve block (FNB). The TKA presented postoperative pain, which needs to be appropriately managed.
