Patients' experiences during the first 12 weeks after discharge in fast-track hip and knee arthroplasty - a qualitative study.

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

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2018 May 27;29:32-40. Epub 2018 Feb 27.

Adelaide Nursing School, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Background: A major goal of care for orthopaedic surgical patients is the achievement of their pre-morbid functional level or at least an improvement of their functional ability. However, patients with altered mental status can significantly impact this and other outcomes and influence the delivery of care. Patient mobilisation is a role shared by both nurses and physiotherapists. Read More

Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care, Centre for Work-Based Learning and Continuing Development, Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, Canterbury Christ Church University, United Kingdom.

The aim of this article is to share the experience of how a multi-disciplinary team worked together to develop the nursing role to incorporate the practitioners supporting mobilisation of a patient. The role developed nurses' competence, ensuring that the information and instruction patients received were consistent between therapists and nursing staff, but also supported the Enhanced Recovery Programme (2010). There were issues with the level of therapy support, especially out of hours. Read More

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2017 Nov 21;27:23-27. Epub 2017 Jun 21.

Karolinska Institute, Department of Clinical Science and Education, Södersjukhuset & Academic EMS in Stockholm, Sweden.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the goal of health care is for the entire general population to have good health and receive care on equal terms. Little is known about gender differences in the management of patients in the ambulance service. There is also a lack of studies investigating how the characteristics of health care personnel, such as gender and work experience, impact on patient care Therefore, the aim of this study was to describe ambulance personnel's assessments and the pain relief they provide for patients with hip fractures, based on the ambulance personnel's gender and years of experience.

To log-roll or not to log-roll - That is the question! A review of the use of the log-roll for patients with pelvic fractures.

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2017 Nov 10;27:36-40. Epub 2017 May 10.

Escola Superior de Enfermagem do Porto, Portugal; Emergency Department, Royal London Hospital, Barts Health NHS Trust, UK. Electronic address:

Pelvic fractures are one of the most serious injuries in polytrauma - massive haemorrhage is a major complication and the leading cause of death. The assessment and early management of these injuries in the Emergency Department (ED) focuses on the recognition of haemodynamic instability and should follow Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) guidelines. The log-roll technique, although an accepted practice in trauma care, has been reported to be inadvisable when a pelvic fracture is suspected. Read More

Reprint of: The impact of fragility fracture and approaches to osteoporosis risk assessment worldwide.

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2017 Aug 26;26:7-17. Epub 2017 Apr 26.

MRC Lifecourse Epidemiology Unit, University of Southampton, Southampton, SO16 6YD, UK; NIHR Southampton Biomedical Research Centre, University of Southampton and University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, Tremona Road, Southampton, SO16 6YD, UK; NIHR Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit, University of Oxford, Oxford, OX3 7LD, UK. Electronic address:

Osteoporosis constitutes a major public health problem, through its association with age-related fractures, particularly of the hip, vertebrae, distal forearm and humerus. Substantial geographic variation has been noted in the incidence of osteoporotic fractures worldwide, with Western populations (North America, Europe and Oceania), reporting increases in hip fracture throughout the second half of the 20th century, with a stabilisation or decline in the last two decades. In developing populations however, particularly in Asia, the rates of osteoporotic fracture appears to be increasing. Read More

Hip fracture; an interruption that has consequences four months later. A qualitative study.

Int J Orthop Trauma Nurs 2017 Aug 9;26:43-48. Epub 2017 Apr 9.

Department of Care Science, Malmö University, Malmö, Sweden; Department of Health Care Science, Lund University, Lund, Sweden; Department of Orthopaedic, Skåne University Hospital Lund, Lund, Sweden. Electronic address:

Background: Effects following a hip fracture often lead to functional disabilities and increased dependence on others. Although persons sustaining a hip fracture constitute a heterogeneous group in Swedish health care, they tend to be treated as a homogenous one.

Aim: The aim of this study was to reveal how previously healthy people, aged 65 years and older, described how they had adapted to daily life four months after a hip fracture. Read More
