PURPOSE Autologous platelet gel, developed from fresh autologous blood, is a breakthrough in the promotion and acceleration of soft tissue and bone repair. The application of autologous platelet gel has been reported to improve haemostasis and promote function recovery. We screened the randomized controlled trials and controlled clinical trials of high(More)
OBJECTIVE Continuous femoral nerve block (CFNB) is considered the preferred analgesia after TKA. However, it may weaken quadriceps muscle strength, subsequently increasing the risk of falling. Adductor canal block (ACB) is a new sensory block technique that effectively relieves postoperative pain while preserving quadriceps strength. Thias meta-analysis was(More)
BACKGROUND Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is gradually emerging as the treatment of choice for end-stage osteoarthritis. In the past, the method of liposomal bupivacaine by periarticular injection (PAI) showed better effects on pain reduction and opioid consumption after surgery. However, some recent studies have reported that liposomal bupivacaine by PAI(More)
BACKGROUND Tranexamic acid (TXA) is regarded as one of the most important drugs in reducing blood loss and hemoglobin (Hb) drop after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or total hip arthroplasty (THA). Treatment with tranexamic acid (TXA) by intravenous application has been discussed extensively. Recently, several studies have reported that oral administration(More)
The distribution of Modic changes (MCs) in the lumbar endplates and the evaluation of the relationships between MCs and risk factors are vital for research into MCs. The T1-weighted and T2-weighted sagittal MRI scans of 210 patients who exhibited lumbar intervertebral disc degeneration were retrospectively reviewed. The patients' weights, genders, smoking(More)
BACKGROUND Pain management after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) varies and has been investigated for years. Pregabalin as an anticonvulsant agent that selectively affects the nociceptive process has been used for pain relief after operation. This meta-analysis was conducted to examine the evidence of pregabalin in TKA. METHODS Systematic searches of all(More)
The mechanism behind osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) remains unclear. The aim of this study was to explore the pathogenesis of ONFH from a biomechanical standpoint to provide a theoretical basis for improved treatments. We compared the bone structure of fractured femoral heads with that of necrotic femoral heads by Micro-CT scanning and(More)
OBJECTIVE A meta analysis to compare efficacy and safety of bicompartmental knee arthroplasty (BKA) and Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in patients with bicompartmental knee osteoarthritis (OA). METHOD Electronic databases included PubMed, Embase, web of science and the Cochrane Library up to the end of July 2017 were searched. High quality randomized(More)
