BACKGROUND Preoperative donation of autologous blood has been widely used to minimize the potential risk of allogeneic transfusions in total knee arthroplasty. A previous study from our center revealed that preoperative autologous donation reduces the allogeneic blood exposure for anemic patients but has no effect for non-anemic patients. (More)
OBJECTIVE Select patients with unremitting symptoms of cervical radiculopathy may be treated with indirect foraminal decompression and fusion via placement of a cervical cage placed bilaterally through a tissue sparing, posterior approach. Segmental fusion is known to affect adjacent segments. The aim of this study was to assess the affect of posterior(More)
The human tibial nerves is less prone to injury following joint arthroplasty compared with the peroneal nerves. Besides the anatomical distribution, other features may confer protection from stretch injury. We therefore examined the size, shape and connective tissue distribution for the two nerves. The tibial and peroneal nerves from each side of nine fresh(More)
The current study investigates the impact of patient factors, surgical factors, and blood management on postoperative length of stay (LOS) in 516 patients who underwent primary total knee arthroplasty. Age, gender, type of anticoagulation, but not body mass index (BMI) were found to be highly significant predictors of an increased LOS. Allogeneic(More)
