Effects of Nerve Block on Knee Function After Knee Replacement

Early physical therapy after knee surgery is very painful on top of pain from surgery. Pain following surgery can limit recovery. One way to treat pain is by giving intravenous (IV) pain medication with morphine. Another method is to use a “nerve block” which involves placing a thin catheter (tube) ...

Phase N/A

The Analgesic Effect of Nitroglycerin Patch for Postoperative Pain After Total Knee Replacement

Patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty will be randomized into two groups: control and placebo. Eache patient will undergo total knee arthroplasty under general anesthesia. Both groups will get the same anesthetic protocal. At the end of surgery, before awakening patients will recieve either a nitroglycerin or placebo patch on their ...

Phase N/A

Trial Comparing Navigated and Conventional Implantation Techniques in Knee Replacement Surgery

Various risk factors influencing the success of Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) have been studied. Today age, gender, primary or revision surgery, comorbidities and baseline characteristics are known to influence the health-related quality of life after TKA. It is thought, that accurate mechanical alignment and ligament balance ensure optimal kinematic performance ...

Phase

Effect of Combined Use of Naloxone and Tramacet on Postop Analgesia in Elderly Patients Having Joint Replacement Surgery

Patients over 70 years of age, scheduled for joint replacement surgery will be randomized to tramacet/ naloxone plus morphine PCA or to morphine PCA to assess quality of analgesia in the postoperative period. The primary objective is to determine opioid use during combined use of oral tramacet and naloxone infusion ...

Phase

Cost Efficacy of a Clinical Pathway to Patients Undergoing Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery

BACKBROUND Hip and knee replacement are commonly performed surgical procedures, with more than 800,000 hip operations carried out worldwide each year and with almost 550 hip and knee replacements each year in Ringkoebing County. The main indicators for total hip or knee replacement are intractable pain and/or limitation of function ...

Phase N/A

Electrical Stimulation After Total Knee Arthroplasty

Reduced muscle strength from illness or injuries often leads to loss of function and independence in the elderly. The recovery of muscle strength and function in disabled elderly individuals is a major challenge in rehabilitation. The etiology of the muscle weakness with injury or age is not fully elucidated. Training ...

Phase

Static and Dynamic Balance in Correlation With Quality of Life in Primary Total Knee Replacement

Balance Master Testing The Pro Balance Master system with software version 8 will be used in the study. The Pro Balance Master system is comprised of two 23cm × 46cm dual force plates connected at the midline of the anterioposterior axis by a pin joint. Each force plate is mounted ...

Phase

Clinical Study Evaluating the Outcomes of a New Knee System With a Physiological Rollback Mechanism

The aim of this study is to assess the clinical, radiographic and patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) after total knee replacement with Physica KR, define the survivorship of the implants and identify possible risk factors that may lead to failure.

Phase N/A

Unity Total Knee Replacement Using Two Different Surgical Techniques

This study will be conducted at a single centre. The study has two treatment groups. One group of 50 knees (approximately 50 subjects) will have a surgical method that uses mechanical alignment (alignment based on how the leg and knee joint move) to determine the proper position of the knee ...

Phase N/A

Triathlon Tritanium Knee Outcomes Study

The success rate of the Triathlon Tritanium Knee, defined as absence of revision for aseptic loosening of the tibial baseplate at 2 years, is no worse than rates reported in the literature for cemented devices.
