Prevention of venous thromboembolism: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines (8th Edition).
This article discusses the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and is part of the Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice
Prevention of venous thromboembolism: the Seventh ACCP Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy.
This article discusses the prevention of venous thromboembolism (VTE) and is part of the Seventh American College of Chest Physicians Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy:
Prevention of VTE in orthopedic surgery patients: Antithrombotic Therapy and Prevention of Thrombosis, 9th ed: American College of Chest Physicians Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines.
TLDR
Optimal strategies for thromboprophylaxis after major orthopedic surgery include pharmacologic and mechanical approaches.
Prevention of venous thromboembolism.
TLDR
The risk factors for VTE among hospitalized patients are outlined, the efficacy and safety of alternative prophylaxis regimens are reviewed, and recommendations regarding the most suitable prophymic regimens based on the estimated risk are provided.
Correlation between the knee adduction torque and medial contact force for a variety of gait patterns
TLDR
In vivo data collected from a single subject with an instrumented knee implant support the hypothesis that the knee adduction torque is highly correlated with medial compartment contact force and medial to total force ratio during gait.
Decreased knee adduction moment does not guarantee decreased medial contact force during gait
TLDR
In vivo gait data collected from a subject with a force‐measuring knee implant was used to assess whether KAM decreases accurately predict corresponding decreases in medial contact force and future studies that evaluate the effectiveness of gait modifications for offloading the medial compartment of the knee should consider the combined effect of these two knee moments.
In vivo knee loading characteristics during activities of daily living as measured by an instrumented total knee replacement
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the forces and motion sustained by the knee are highly activity‐dependent and that the unique loading characteristics for specific activities should be considered for the design of functional and robust total knee replacements, as well as for rehabilitation programs for patients with knee osteoarthritis or following total knee arthroplasty.
The Effect of the Orientation of the Acetabular and Femoral Components on the Range of Motion of the Hip at Different Head-Neck Ratios*
TLDR
There is an optimum range of acetabular abduction and femoral anteversion that allows the potential for a maximum range of motion without prosthetic impingement after total hip arthroplasty and these data can be used intraoperatively to determine optimum position.
In vivo medial and lateral tibial loads during dynamic and high flexion activities
TLDR
In vivo medial and lateral contact forces experienced by a well‐aligned knee implant for a variety of activities are reported by a single knee replacement patient performing treadmill gait, step up/down, lunge, and kneel activities.
