Preoperative planning is important for successful total hip arthroplasty (THA) and has been historically performed using acetate templates. Digital software templating has been adopted for evaluating implant size, position, and alignment.
Advances in the application of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty: a systematic review
Wearable sensors have become a complementary means for evaluation of body function and gait in lower limb osteoarthritis. This study aimed to review the applications of wearable sensors for gait analysis after total knee arthroplasty (TKA).
The number of patients with osteoarthritis has increased dramatically since the 1950s. Along with diabetes, the illness is now one of the fastest-growing endemic diseases in the world.
No association between previous general infection and prosthetic joint infection after total hip arthroplasty - A national register-based cohort study on 58,449 patients who have osteoarthritis
Prosthetic joint infection (PJI) following total hip arthroplasty (THA) is a serious complication associated with increased risk of death. There is limited knowledge about the association between infection before THA, and risk revision due to PJI. We investigated the association between any previous hospital-diagnosed or community-treated infection 0 to 6 months prior to primary THA and the risk of revision.
