Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Anesthesiology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, USA. Electronic address:

Fatigue affects nearly half of all adults with osteoarthritis. Affected individuals report difficulty with daily functioning, requiring more time and rest during activities, feeling easily exhausted, and having to give up on social and volunteer activities known to improve quality of life. Because its etiology is poorly understood, clinical practice guidelines are unable to address management of fatigue in osteoarthritis. Read More

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2018 Nov 24;31:13-19. Epub 2018 Aug 24.

Department of Clinical Research, Faculty of Health Science, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark. Electronic address:

Background: Due to the shortened length of stay in fast-track total hip and knee arthroplasty, patients must at a very early stage following surgery take responsibility for their postoperative care and treatment. It is important to establish if this treatment modality of fast-track is not only cost-effective, but meets patients' expectations and needs.

Aim: To explore the lived experience of patients in fast-track total hip and knee arthroplasty during the first 12 weeks after discharge. Read More

Quality of life, effects on Asian Lifestyle, and perceived satisfaction after total hip arthroplasty in Japan and Korea.

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2018 Nov 9;31:20-25. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

Orthopaedic Surgery, Hallym University Medical Center Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital, 1 Singil Ro, Youngdeungpo Gu, Seoul, 07441, South Korea. Electronic address:

Background: The Asian lifestyle requires deep hip flexion, which increases the risk of dislocation. Hence, Asian total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients may have problems postoperatively. This study aimed to 1) document quality of life (QoL), Asian lifestyle-related items (five postures that require deep hip flexion), and perceived satisfaction in patients who underwent THA in Japan versus Korea, 2) assess the differences in QoL and Asian lifestyle-related items by patient lifestyle, and 3) identify the factors predicting QoL.

Does physiotherapy prehabilitation improve pre-surgical outcomes and influence patient expectations prior to knee and hip joint arthroplasty?

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2018 Aug 25;30:14-19. Epub 2018 Jun 25.

Hutt Valley District Health Board, Lower Hutt, New Zealand.

Introduction: Evidence supporting physiotherapy prior to hip or knee replacement for decreasing pain and improving function pre and post-operatively is equivocal. This observational cohort study used a mixed-methods approach to investigate whether 8 weeks of physiotherapy led exercise and education ('prehabilitation') would change pain and functional outcomes prior to surgery, and if patients' expectations and satisfaction post-surgery were influenced.

Methods: Participants awaiting THR or TKR were recruited (n = 75). Read More
