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.

Dangers of Delaying Joint Replacement Surgery: Can it Affect My Outcome?
 
01:41
Dangers of delaying joint replacement surgery are a common discussion point amongst patients and surgeons. In health systems outside the US, like Canada, sometimes you will wait for 18 months for a total hip or a total knee replacement due to wait times. As such, waiting 18 months to 2 years for a joint replacement probably is not going to significantly change your recovery or what the surgeon does during the surgery itself. Patients often postpone their joint surgery by a year or two because they’re close to retirement or are waiting for “the right time”. Two years is going to hurt you significantly, but you may have an increased deformity or maybe some increased pain as a result of the progression of your arthritis. This is not likely to impact your recovery. Putting off hip replacement surgery or timing knee replacement surgery for when you’re prepared is the most important factor. If you need to wait a few months in order to be more comfortable and prepared for your joint replacement, you should do so. Waiting until you’re mentally, physically and emotionally optimized for surgery will have the most impact on your surgery outcome and recovery. Play this video to hear what Dr. Wayne Trevor North, orthopedic surgeon at Henry Ford in Detroit, Michigan has to say about on this subject (https://www.healthgrades.com/physician/dr-wayne-north-3lm5j).

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.

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

Total knee replacement nighttime pain control.AVI

A common after effect of surgery may involve a poorly understood effect similar to phantom limb pain that vets would experience. I am 63 and having completed a staged bilateral TKA within a four week period I find that the most recent knee operated on insists on waking me up at night. For me, pain meds were only partially effective in easing the discomfort of the nightime 'phantom' pains. These pains seemed to arise simply from contact with the bed sheet or sometimes arise from my mind just anticipating pain. Here is what worked great for me. Since my incision was well healed I applied some hand creame over the knee area and wrapped with the clear food service plastic film. This made for a smooth surface that did not seem to generate nerve stimuli for the brain to misinterpret as aches, sharp pains, dull pains, bone pains, etc. If your incision has not fully healed I personally would completely wrap the knee once with a standard white kitchen paper towel and then apply the food service film over that. The paper towel contains the natural ingredient 'Lignin' from pulp which is somewhat antibacterial. If you have a lot of nighttime pain try making a compress with a cloth towel soaked in hot water. Sprinkle on some epsom salt if you have it. Lay towel on the leg and then wrap with a plastic garbage bag or similar to keep the towel in place and prevent leakage to your bed. The epsom salts contains magnesium which typically has a relaxing effect on muscles, etc. With my left TKA at four weeks post op, the plastic bag has been essential but I still had spontaneous nite aches in my leg muscles. A Physical Therapist specialist (Josh MIller with Body Structure Med. Ctr.) suggested doing the following: "Take a suitable elastic band (e.g.theraband, etc) and tie the ends to form a loop. Lay the loop down as a linear form. Grab each end and place around the TKA joint with one side of the band above the back of the knee joint and the other below. Fasten the two ends to an immovable anchor post at the same hgt. as your knee. Facing the anchor post and with the band pressing above and below the BACK of the knee (this is so you are not putting pressure directly on the center of the joint itself) move your leg back until you feel medium tension from the elastic band. Now raise up on your toes on the leg...increase the tension a little and then push the heel down to the floor. Do this about 25 times. I felt an immediate muscle/fascia release. My random muscle pain at night left for good. This really worked great for me. I am 3 months post op on my right knee and everything seems to be pretty much normal. I did encounter a period of time in which I had a different kind of night time pain. I determined that this was pain from a wave of muscle spasms that began just about anywhere on my entire right leg. The spasms mainly involved the Illio tibial band of muscles. I discovered by accident that if I strapped on that cast like contraption that I was sent home with the spasms stopped. That made for uncomfortable sleeping. A visit to my surgeon brought about a better solution. He prescribed CYCLOBENZAPRINE 10mg three times a day for the spasms. I got relief the first day. He also prescribed TENAZEPAM 30 mg at night for sleep. (none of the other meds could give me sleep). That worked great. UPDATE: (I just did an extensive update and it disappeared into cyberspace.) Here is the shortened version. WHAT WORKED BEST FOR ME (better than tenazepam): CVS "ice bag" , 3qt capacity, About $13USD incld tax. Put about 1-1.5qts water into bag, then pour in one or two tablespoons of salt. Tip1-depress ice bag until water level reaches that of lid. Fasten lid tightly. Tip2-Press down firmly on ice bag for 1 min to test. Do on a smooth counter or paper towel (don't trust your sense of 'feel'). (Remember these are made in China...my first bag leaked all over my mattress about 2am...so not good. The leak was from a tiny puncture in the plastic bag from the manufacturing process most likely. Tip3- Place the bag on the knee for 20-30 minutes before bedtime or go to sleep with it if you want. (Don't get the bag too cold or you won't like that either) RESULT: My rogue nerve stimulii disappeared...finally. What a relief. I did look at bags at Wal-mart and didn't like any of them that I saw. The internet site for wal-mart shows a pack with a wrap to hold it in place but the store didn't have that. CVS had some other types as well such a pouch with 'little plastic peas' that gave it flexibility...looked pretty good but was a little smaller than the "ice pack". Either one should work fine. Now it's just a matter of strengthening muscles and working to increase flexion. I am now at 120 deg. flexion if I really bite my lip. I hope this info will help someone deal with pain. UPDATE: I am now at 128deg/135 deg flexion and 3,5 months post op on bilateral TKA. I will say more about that on another post.

Your symptoms aren’t on a 9-5 schedule, neither are our offices. Call anytime day or night, even weekends. 888-496-0909 A hospital-acquired infection is any clinically diagnosed infection that is not associated with the condition that brought the patient to the hospital in the first place.

The fourth complication which could occur is wound infection statistics show that about one in hundred knees get infected, it might be a superficial infection or it can go deep, to prevent the infection we do prophylactically give antibiotics and also we make sure that the surgery is done in a sterile, clean environment.

Treatment with antibiotics alone is no longer sufficient to prevent infection effectively, owing to antibiotic resistance. One of the greatest problems in the operating room is keeping it sterile: Surgical instruments themselves are less sterile immediately they are opened.. The focussed mobile laminar air flow unit protect the instruments and the surgical site against contamination during surgery. www.normeditec.com

Knee replacement Lowell,  Knee Replacement Operation
 
03:17
Knee replacement Surgery Lowell, Knee Replacement surgery explained, using the actual parts used during the operation, by Dr. Lawrence Johnson, a board certified orthopedic surgeon , DR. LAWRENCE JOHNSON: Hello, I’m Dr. Larry Johnson. I’m a board-certified orthopedic surgeon practicing in the Lowell, Massachusetts area. I’ve been doing hip, knee replacements for over 30 years. And I love doing knee replacements because it is one of the most successful operations that we have in (inaudible 0:20) of orthopedic surgery. There are countless numbers of patients that I’ve treated who are very, very happy with their knee replacement. It helps because you’re removing diseased bone, which is wearing bone on bone, causing pain, stiffness, swelling, giving out, and degrading the quality of life. So we like to help the patients. Initially, we can try non-operative measures to help the arthritis. These measures include physical therapy, strengthening exercises, range-of-motion exercises, weight management, use of anti-inflammatory medications, cortisone injections, which are very, very helpful, and other measures such as aquatic therapy. At times, however, the pain just becomes too prevalent. There’s pain at night, pain with going up and down stairs, the knee is giving out, need for a cane arises, and that’s not acceptable – that is just not acceptable to many people in daily life. Who wants to use a cane, especially in this day and age? Then they reach the point of needing a knee replacement. So what the knee replacement is: a resurfacing operation. On the end of the thigh bone, the femur, goes a femoral component, which is highly polished stainless steel cobalt chrome. On the tibial side, the shin bone, we have a titanium base plate with a polydense polyethylene component, which produces a low-friction situation so your knee can flex and extend and it can rotate some. Now, of course, as you can see, we have different sizes of knee replacements: size one through seven, or if necessary, a custom size if you’re outside of those ranges. The knee-replacement operation is about an hour-and-a-half procedure, and the patient is usually in the hospital for about two days. We prefer the patient to go home rather than to rehab after two days because at home you have your own bugs, which your body is familiar with, rather than being at risk to be exposed to other people’s bugs, bacteria, at the rehab center. We give the patient, after surgery, antibiotics for a short course of time and we put them on a blood thinner so as to prevent blood clots, which are two of the major problems which can happen after a knee-replacement surgery. We don’t like these problems, so we do everything we can to prevent it, including early mobilization. That means, if possible, to get you up out of bed walking short distances even the day of surgery and certainly no later than the following morning. So if you’re interested in learning more about knee-replacement surgery, please call me. I’m Dr. Larry Johnson. I’m in North Chelmsford, Massachusetts. My phone number is 978-275-9650. Thank you very much.

ICD-10: How to Code Joint Replacements (Home Health Coding Tip by PPS Plus) - Sept 2015
 
03:45
Conquer your coding & OASIS challenges with the best home health tips on YouTube: http://ppsplus.com. Join our Assistant Director of Coding & OASIS Review Services, Victoria Jones, as she walks you through an ICD-10 coding patient scenario. Victoria will illustrate how to code a patient with a joint replacement in ICD-10, and then discuss how to code the patient after an infection occurs. She will also provide a rationale for each scenario. ************************************ Don’t compromise your OASIS.

Scenario 1 After failed conservative therapy for osteoarthritis of the knee, the patient has a bilateral knee joint replacement and is now being admitted to home health for physical therapy. Rationale Although this patient is being admitted to home health for physical therapy, in ICD-10 we no longer have therapy only codes, so we are able to make the specific need requiring PT our primary diagnosis, which is the fact that this patient had joint replacement surgery. Also unlike in ICD-9, in ICD-10 we are able to code not only the specific joint that was replaced but also which side. In this case the patient had a bilateral knee replacement, and coding is able to accurately reflect this. To look up each of these diagnosis codes in the alphabetic index, go to Aftercare – Following Surgery For – Joint Replacement and also Presence – Implanted Device – Joint – Knee, respectively. Scenario 2 Following a previous right knee replacement surgery, the patient has now developed an infection at the joint implantation site and is to receive IV antibiotics for six weeks. She is being admitted to home health for education on disease process and assistance with medication administration. Rationale The focus of care for this patient is the treatment of her right knee joint infection. Unlike ICD-9, in ICD-10 we are able to code the infection of that specific location. Had we also known the type of infection, or “bug,” that could have been coded as well (e.g., MRSA). One of the ways this diagnosis may be found in the alphabetic index is by looking under Infection – Knee – Due to Internal Joint Prosthesis. An additional code to indicate which joint is affected is no longer needed in ICD-10, because the complication code includes this information. Because the patient will be receiving IV antibiotics, the care of the PICC and use of antibiotics are coded next. Attention to vascular access device may be found by looking at Fitting – Portacath, which is also a vascular access device, and the long term use of antibiotics is found under Long Term – Antibiotics. ************************************ More about Our Company: http://ppsplus.com/about-us/ Master ICD-10 coding and all home health topics: http://ppsplus.com/what-we-do/education/ PPS Plus is headquartered in Biloxi, Mississippi. ************************************ PPS Plus provides the perfect solution for maximizing your reimbursement potential, growing your business and providing your patients with better care.

Infection of Artificial Joint  - Treatment by Dr. Nakul Karkare - CBS New York
 
02:53
This report with Dr. Karkare's patient Hazel Atkinson aired on New Yorks' CBS news this week. This is the transcript of the video: Announcer: Her knee replacement almost led to an amputation. A nightmare infection that could have left this woman without a leg. Total knee replacements are done hundreds of thousands of times a year, but in the rare case where something goes wrong, it can be devastating. Christine : CBS 2 Dr. Max Gomez tells us now of a woman who almost lost her leg after a knee surgery. Thankfully though, doctors saved it. He's here with the story, Max. Dr. Gomez : That's right Christine. An infected knee or hip replacement is a disaster. The [processors 00:00:26] has to be removed leaving a pretty useless leg for weeks or months before another joint can be put in. If the infection or other complications get really bad, it takes heroic measures to save the leg. Reporter: Doctors in hospitals go to great lengths to prevent infection and total joint replacements. Surgeons wear a special space suit, scrub themselves and your skin with germ killing solutions, but sometimes that's not enough. Hazel Atkinson was in a serious car accident that broke both her legs, she ended up with one total knee replacement that eventually loosened and got infected. Hazel Atkinson: Several doctors in the hospital said that it was time to give up and- Dr: Karkare: Amputate your leg. Hazel Atkinson: Amputate my leg, yes. It still brings tears ... Sorry. Reporter: But Hazel found Dr. Nakul Karkare who was willing to try to save her leg. Normally, that means taking out the artificial joint and placing special antibiotic-impregnated spacers, but- Dr: Karkare: There's no commercially available spacer which can be put in a knee after removing a huge implant. Reporter: Dr. Karkare fashioned a custom implant using large amounts of antibiotics cement, then replaced it with a huge knee implant normally used in bone cancer patients. Here's what a normal knee replacement looks like, just caps on the Femur and Tibia, and here's what that normal replacement looks like next to Hazel's new knee. Dr: Karkare: The amputation was a possibility because the nerves and the blood vessels are all entrapped in the scar tissue around the knee joint. Reporter: Just a couple of years later, Hazel is not only walking normally, she went to China and walked the Great Wall all without a cane or walker. Hazel Atkinson: I play with my grandson, I love it. Dr. Gomez : Hazel still has to take antibiotics because even a dental procedure or a small skin infection can release bacteria that can take rooting colonize her new implant, but that's not unlike regular joint replacements patients. She told me that's a small price to pay for saving her leg. By the way, the first sign of an infection is usually pain, sometimes you'll have pain anyway but ... and the doctor has to look and see whether that's an infection that might be setting in. Reporter: Imagine how she feels after you heard her say, they were going to remove my leg. Dr. Gomez : They were going to take her leg off. She still gets ... This is years later and she still gets choked up just thinking about it. Christine : How can you not? All right, Dr. Max thank you.

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.

Hip & Knee Infection Lawsuits [Case Summary]
 
06:16
For more about deep joint infection lawsuits: https://www.lawsuitlegal.com/bair-hugger.php In this case data snapshot, we share the COMPLETE story behind hip and knee joint infection legal action. If you have recently underwent a joint replacement surgery you NEED to know this very important information compiled from the findings of recent investigations into patient claims who suffered infections. We explain WHY you may have a case if you suffered an infection or other complications after your procedure - and what your options are. The Bair Hugger forced-air warming system is being investigated and has been named in court documents as the possible cause of post-surgical infection due to contaminated air circulation allegations. This executive case summary breaks down the important studies looking into forced air warming blankets and patient exposure to bacteria and contaminants. Most people don't know that after a joint replacement procedure, infection is often the biggest challenge facing patients. If bacteria is allowed to contaminate the wound or the joint itself, it can fester and result in a number of terrible health problems. Infections may require revision surgery, ex-plant of the artificial joint, amputation and even result in death. The pain can be unbearable and mobility can be lost - it's terrible for suffering victims. In this brief we break down the most important studies looking into the infection rate data caused by forced air warming systems, revealing the contaminated particulate data which the defective product attorneys of the MDL will be sure to discuss. Additionally, we share what the leading bair hugger attorneys representing the injured plaintiffs have said about this important case for anyone who has replacement surgery.
