A Comparison of Anaesthetic Methods for Total Knee Replacement Surgery

We are comparing a continuous adductor canal block with a low concentration continuous femoral nerve block. We currently use a low dose femoral nerve catheter based technique as part of our standard treatment strategy for total knee arthroplasty. The use of a catheter provides prolonged analgesia compared to a single ...

iCORE: Collaborative Orthopedics Outcomes Registry

The goal of this registry is to review the data collected and research ways to improve patient safety, quality of care, and medical decision-making, reduce medical spending, and help advance orthopedic science and bioengineering.

fMRI and Central Sensitization in Chronic Knee Osteoarthritis. A Pre and Post TKR Study

Painful osteoarthritis (OA) is the 4th largest cause of disability in the UK. Preoperative temporal summation, a measure of central pain facilitation, has been shown to predict postoperative pain after total knee replacement surgery (TKR). The assessment of the brain's response to noxious stimuli using non-invasive functional MRI (fMRI) may ...

Phase N/A

Analgesic Efficacy of Saphenous Nerve Blockade for Outpatient Knee Anterior Cruciate Ligament Surgery

The purpose of this study is to determine whether blockade of the saphenous nerve can provide the same degree of analgesia postoperatively for ACLS as a femoral nerve block without resulting motor blockade enhancing shortening of hospital stay en functional outcome.

Novel Pre-Surgery Exercise-Conditioning in Patients Waiting for Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA)

Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the treatment of choice for patients suffering from severe pain and functional limitation caused by osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee joint's surfaces (Magee et al. 2009). Within the UK, over 60,000 TKA surgeries are registered yearly (NJR 2015), making TKA one of the most common ...

Phase N/A

Dexamethasone in Total Knee and Total Hip Arthroplasty

The addition of dexamethasone to an local infiltration analgesia (LIA) mixture for postoperative analgesia following total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has a limited evidence base. Although there is increasing support in the literature for its use in peripheral nerve blockade, there have only been a handful of studies assessing its applicability ...

Phase

An Intravenous Iron Based Protocol for Preoperative Anaemia in Hip and Knee Surgery - An Observational Study

Patients presenting with preoperative anaemia prior to hip and knee arthroplasty has a high risk of receiving allogeneic blood transfusion and anaemia has been associated with increased postoperative morbidity and mortality. While IV-iron administration may raise Hb prior to surgery, existing guidelines for addressing and treating preoperative anaemia is not ...

Evaluation of Arthroscopic Reconstruction of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament by One Night Hospital Stay or by Day Surgery: a Randomised Prospective Clinical Trial

Patients who suffered from a rupture of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament with instability of the knee joint, will be treated with an operative ACL-reconstruction. One group of patients will stay one night in the hospital and go home the other day (Group I). The other group of patients will go ...

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

Defining the Best Approach to Block the Pain After Knee Surgery

60 patients being treated for ACL repair or knee arthroplasties under regional anesthesia will be randomized to three groups: Fascia Iliaca Block (FIB), Femoral Block (FB) with stimulating catheter or FB without stimulating catheter. A catheter will be placed according to each technique, before the surgery. A bolus of local ...
