Complications in Total Knee Replacement - Dr. Yogishwar A V
 
02:43
The most common complication in a total knee replacement will be infection followed by deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, implant failure and so on. In order to avoid infection we will do lot of screening. So prior to surgery we will check his diabetic status, whether there is any open wound around the knee where we would be doing the surgery. We would like to take a medical history to rule out any upper respiratory infection or urinary tract infection. These are all precautions we take prior to the surgery. During the surgery the precautions will be a sterile environment. We usually do knee replacement surgeries in a laminar flow theatre where even the air what we breath out will not be reaching the patient. The flow would be such that there would be a flow from the top of the theatre where it will be falling on the patient and it will be moving on through the four vents. In that way whatever air we breathe out will not be reaching the patient. In addition to that we wear something called as a hood or space suit which will cover the entire body. Post-op we follow the standard protocol of an antibiotic coverage about three doses, followed by a regular dressing at the end of three days, five days and fifteen days. Ideally we do single knee replacement in a single sitting. If the patient is medically fit, if the anaesthetist, cardiologist feel that the patient is able to sustain the surgery we can also do a bilateral total knee replacement in a single sitting. We usually do it regularly on a daily basis.

Complications After Joint Replacement Surgery: Red Flags to Watch For.
 
01:30
Complications after joint replacement surgery can often be detected by knowing which red flags to watch out for. Signs of infection after surgery is the most important thing to look out for. A knee replacement infection or hip replacement infection will seriously affect your recovery time. As a rule of thumb, if you’re worried about something in your recovery, let your surgeon know. From your surgeon’s perspective, they’d rather know if something is concerning you and have the opportunity to treat you, then have you go into the ER or into an after-hours clinic. Your surgeon knows you and your case the best and will likely have the best handle on treating you. It’s very normal to have things like swelling and redness. However, there are some signs that things may not be normal. PeerWell has a list of red flags to watch out for after surgery by following the acronym “WORST”. Worsening, discolored or foul smelling discharge from your wound/ excessive bleeding; Out of breath, chest pain or difficulty breathing; Red streaking down the leg from your incision; Sharp pain in the back of your surgical leg calf; Temperature of 100.5 degrees fahrenheit or greater. If you’re experiencing any of the above, contact your physician or care team immediately.

Total Knee Replacement Patient Information
 
03:25
Total Knee Replacement Surgery Video - Medical Videos Total knee replacement facts Patients with severe destruction of the knee joint associated with progressive pain and impaired function may be candidates for total knee replacement. Osteoarthritis is the most common reason for knee replacement operation in the U.S. Risks of total knee replacement surgery have been identified. Physical therapy is an essential part of rehabilitation after total knee replacement. Patients with artificial joints are recommended to take antibiotics before, during, and after any elective invasive procedures (including dental work). What is a total knee replacement?A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased knee joint is replaced with artificial material. The knee is a hinge joint which provides motion at the point where the thigh meets the lower leg. The thighbone (or femur) abuts the large bone of the lower leg (tibia) at the knee joint. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a channeled plastic piece with a metal stem. Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint, a plastic "button" may also be added under the kneecap surface. The artificial components of a total knee replacement are referred to as the prosthesis. The posterior cruciate ligament is a tissue that normally stabilizes each side of the knee joint so that the lower leg cannot slide backward in relation to the thighbone. In total knee replacement surgery, this ligament is either retained, sacrificed, or substituted by a polyethylene post. Each of these various designs of total knee replacement has its own particular benefits and risks. What is Total Knee Replacement Surgery Procedure of Total Knee Replacement Surgery

http://www.mdbonedocs.com/OurSpecialties/JointReplacement Total knee replacement surgery should be your last resort after trying to remedy knee pain or knee arthritis through less invasive options like physical therapy, medication, or arthroscopic surgery. There are several elements of total knee replacement surgery that prospective patients should be aware of. Knee replacement surgery has become more effective than ever thanks to computer-assisted techniques. Doctors can now model your unique knee through 3D imaging software to know exactly what treatment to use, resulting in long-term success. Any surgery includes risks. Preventing an infection starts long before your total knee replacement. Eating nutritious foods and abstaining from tobacco are important ways to keep your immune system at peak performance. Prepping the skin before surgery and treating it afterward, as well as the use of antibiotics are critical to avoiding infection. Be vigilant about detecting blood clots, especially if you or anyone in your family has a history of blood clots. Recovery takes mental and physical stamina, so getting in great shape before your surgery is important and maintaining your will to improve your range of motion is key.

Recreational Activity: Yoga for TKR with antibiotic spacer.

Yoga using only one leg is hard! But as you can see, it can be adapted to each individual's needs. Some thing were just plain unattainable without use of my right leg. For example, I could not switch sides of my poses, I could only do the side I put weight on my right leg with. I also could not do some of my favorite poses that you need both legs to do, so I omitted them from my sequence. As you can see, I stumbled at one point. Safety is an issue! I adapted and graded my activity by using my walker when I needed it, slowly pushed myself more, took frequent breath breaks, and did not hold any pose that long. Floor poses are easier that standing poses, so that is an easy way to grade this activity as well. Overall, I would say one-legged yoga was a success! I would have never tried it if I didn't have this assignment, and it was an experience!

Joint Surgery: Reasons for Revision
 
01:54
Call it joint replacement, take two. While the vast majority of implant surgeries are successful, about 10% of patients will need another surgery to revise or replace the joint a second time. “Hip and knee replacement is one of the most popular procedures in the country. With more and more people having them, more and more patients are having problems with them,” says Dr. Charles Springer, who is an orthopedic surgeon on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. There are several reasons for revision. Some require immediate attention. That includes an infection around the new joint. “Sometimes the infection itself is very difficult to eradicate and as a result you need to remove the implant,” says Dr. Springer. Serious complications, including infection occur in less than 2% of cases. Another reason for replacing an artificial joint is to correct a bone break around the joint, which is called a peri-prosthetic fracture. “Patients can develop stress fractures around implants and typically that’s because it’s an area of high-stress. It’s more of a problem with people that have osteoporotic bone,” says Dr. Springer. The most common reason for revision is loosening of the joint. It is frequently related to wear and tear or obesity - both putting added stress on the joint. Surgery is an option when patients experience pain or deformity. Even then, doctors try to avoid completely replacing the artificial joint. “Sometimes you can do a minor surgery such as changing out a plastic spacer, which is a much quicker and easier recovery as opposed to taking the whole implant out and starting from scratch,” says Dr. Springer. As increasing numbers of young patients undergo a joint replacement and seniors continue to live longer, a growing segment of people will outlast their implants.
