BACKGROUND The antifibrinolytic tranexamic acid reduces surgical blood loss, but studies have not identified an optimal regimen. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We studied different dosages, timings, and modes of administration to identify the most effective regimen of tranexamic acid in achieving maximum reduction of blood loss in TKA. METHODS We prospectively(More)
We reviewed 47 patients following operatively treated ankle fracture-dislocation, at an average of 15 months after injury, to assess the outcome of two different postoperative regimens. Of the 47 patients, 27 received early active and passive ankle exercises, and 20 patients received immediate plaster splintage. Patients were assessed clinically by an(More)
We prospectively enrolled 118 patients (133 knees) whose arthroplasties were performed using posterior-stabilized rotating-platform knee implants. Introduced in year 2000, this implant's performance beyond 5 years is not reported on, to date. We present 5- to 8-year (average, 6.5 years) results of 118 posterior-stabilized rotating-platform knee(More)
BACKGROUND Lateral release of a tight lateral retinaculum in a TKA is intended to correct patellar maltracking but the widely used inside-out technique has associated risks. We describe an alternate stepwise outside-in technique, with titrated release intended to maximize the chance of preserving the superior lateral genicular artery (SLGA). DESCRIPTION(More)
Supracondylar fracture above a total knee arthroplasty with a posterior cruciate-substituting design presents a challenging problem to the orthopaedic surgeon. The standard treatment using a intramedullary rod is made difficult by the design of the PFC cruciate-substituting total knee arthroplasty (Johnson & Johnson Orthopaedics, Raynham, MA), which(More)
We studied the pattern of 99mTc-methylene diphosphonate uptake around uncemented femoral components in 44 asymptomatic hip arthroplasties, performing isotope scans at intervals from 4 to 48 months after operation. We used phase-II images obtained with a high-resolution gamma camera and measured the activity in various zones using a specially designed(More)
We analyzed alignment of 300 knees, divided equally into groups according to total knee arthroplasty technique: Conventional, CAS-Early (computer-assisted surgery during the surgeon's learning curve), and CAS-Late (after experience with CAS). With the margin of error for alignment of the mechanical axis and femoral and tibial components each within ±3°, the(More)
PURPOSE Internet addiction (IA) is an upcoming and less researched entity in psychiatry, especially in low and middle income countries. This is the first such effort to study IA amongst Indian school students of class 11th and 12th and to find its correlation with socio-educational characteristics, internet use patterns and psychological variables, namely(More)
Continuous passive motion (CPM), though of doubtful value, is yet routinely practiced post-total knee arthroplasty (TKA). We prospectively distributed 84 patients with TKA to 1 of the 3 standard rehabilitation regimes: no-CPM, 1-day-CPM, and 3-day-CPM. We recorded a unique "Timed up and go" test besides pain, Western Ontario and McMaster Universities(More)
