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.
A role for artificial intelligence applications inside and outside of the operating theatre: a review of contemporary use associated with total knee arthroplasty
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become involved in many aspects of everyday life, from voice-activated virtual assistants built into smartphones to global online search engines. Similarly, many areas of modern medicine have found ways to incorporate such technologies into mainstream practice.
Activity level (AL) recommendations following total joint arthroplasty (TJA) remains controversial. Our purpose was to compare implant survivorship of high (HA) and low activity (LA) patients after primary TJA. We hypothesized that there would be no difference in implant survivorship based on AL.
Hip arthritis results from the breakdown of cartilage within your hip joints, causing hip stiffness and pain that can increase with inactivity, standing, and walking. Although walking can be uncomfortable and difficult with hip arthritis, walking is also incredibly important for maintaining the mobility and strength of your hips.
Bone spurs in the knee are outgrowths of bone that develop in joints when there is increased pressure between bones from a lack of cartilage. Bone spurs are also called osteophytes. Bone spurs (or “spurring bone”) in the knee can cause pain and limit joint mobility, which can cause trouble with doing everyday activities like walking, squatting, bending, and going up and down stairs.
