Determining the cause of a swollen knee can sometimes be challenging. It may an acute condition caused by a traumatic injury or a chronic one which has developed slowly over time.
Rehabilitation after knee replacement is an essential part of the recovery process. But what's the best way to prepare patients before the procedure?
Regular physical activity, including lighter intensity activities such as walking, is associated with reduced risk of hip and total fracture in postmenopausal women, according to new research from the University at Buffalo.
Patients with knee osteoarthritis (OA) who walk at a moderate-to-vigorous intensity may delay their need for total knee arthroplasty (TKA), according to new research findings presented at the 2018 ACR/ARHP Annual Meeting.
A study recently published online by JAMA Surgery reports that the use of aspirin may be just as effective as the use of newer, more expensive anticoagulants such as enoxaparin (Lovenox) and rivaroxaban (Xarelto) in preventing venous thromboembolism (VTE) after primary total knee arthroplasty – which could help reduce costs for the nearly 1 million Americans who have knee replacement surgery each year.
