The indications, incidence, outcomes, and survivorship of stems in primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are lacking in the contemporary literature. Our hypothesis is stems in primary TKA would result in worse outcomes and survivorship. All primary TKAs between 2007 and 2011 with 2-year follow-up were identified. Revision TKA or UKA conversion was excluded.(More)
The injection of the anticoagulant mepesulphate (Treburon) into the cerebral ventricles of cats resulted in tremor, salivation, tachypnoea, loud calling, and brief periods of various forms of seizures followed by progressive reduction in spontaneous movements and somnolence. The possible sites of action for these effects are discussed.
BACKGROUND The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) activity scale and the Lower Extremity Activity Scale (LEAS) are the two most-widely used and rigorously developed scales for assessing activity level in patients having joint replacement. However, the two scales are not convertible, and the level of correlation between the two is not clear.(More)
BACKGROUND Changes in reimbursement for total hip and knee arthroplasties (THA and TKA) have placed increased financial burden of early readmission on hospitals and surgeons. Our purpose was to characterize factors of 30-day readmission for surgical complications after THA and TKA at a single, high-volume orthopedic specialty hospital. METHODS Patients(More)
