A Post-Market Retrospective Study on Revision Total Knee Arthroplasty Using Medacta GMK® Revision Prosthesis
This is a retrospective, single-site observational study, designed to assess the clinical outcomes and collect safety data of GMK Revision knee system used for primary or revision total knee arthroplasty at minimum two years post-treatment.
A Pragmatic Trial To Determine the Benefit of Exercise Incentives and Corticosteroid Injections in Osteoarthritis of the Knee
Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is one of the most common and disabling conditions among Veterans. Management of KOA is challenging as there are few effective treatments other than joint replacement. Importantly, low levels of physical activity in patients with knee problems might worsen pain and disability. This study aims to determine the feasibility of using methods to change behavior that use social incentives and promote physical activity through playing games and interacting with a web-based platform. The study will also evaluate an important and widely used treatment, namely corticosteroid injections. Participants will be randomized into...
Apremilast Pregnancy Exposure Registry
The purpose of the Apremilast Pregnancy Exposure Registry is to monitor planned and unplanned pregnancies exposed to apremilast and to evaluate the safety of this medication relative to specified pregnancy outcomes, and to evaluate potential effects of prenatal apremilast exposure on infant health status through one year of age.
A Prospective, Clinical Investigation of the Vanguard 360 Revision Knee
The purpose of this study is to evaluate performance of the Vanguard 360 revision knee system utilizing offset on either the tibial component, femoral component, or both in terms of the restoration of mechanical alignment, clinical outcomes and survivorship.
A Prospective Clinical Trial Comparing Serum Mast Cell Tryptase (SMCT) Levels to Arthrofibrosis Rates Among Primary Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) Patients
This research is being done to see if the amount of an enzyme in blood (called serum mast cell tryptase) changes before and after surgery. The investigators would like to see if these amounts are related to knee stiffness and pain in subjects that undergo a total knee replacement.
A Prospective Multicenter Longitudinal Cohort Study of the Mymobility Platform
Post-market prospective, multi-center longitudinal study to determine if mobile application-guided education and exercise paired with accurate and sensitive activity monitoring, captured from consumer wearables, can provide a viable (and potentially improved) alternative to current standard of care physical therapy for hip and knee arthroplasty.
A Prospective Study Comparing Suture Anchor and Soft Tissue Pectoralis Major Tendon Techniques for Biceps Tenodesis
This is a prospective randomized controlled trial comparing two common techniques of long head of biceps tendon tenodesis in shoulder surgery. Numerous techniques of biceps tenodesis currently exist and are commonly performed. We will be comparing the tenodesis procedure using a suture anchor device versus a technique where the tendon is simply sutured to the pectoralis major tendon.
A Prospective Study of Clinical Outcomes Following a Single Intradiscal Injection of Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate (BMAC) for Single Level Discogenic Low Back Pain
This single-institution prospective case series (single arm) study will assess the clinical outcomes of patients diagnosed with single level discogenic low back pain following an intradiscal injection of bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC).
A Prospective Study to Compare Bupivacaine and Exparel Versus Bupivacaine or Exparel Alone for Postoperative Pain Relief
The purpose of this study is to collect information about how patients feel when doctors manage their pain after lumbar spine surgery using a combination of EXPAREL® and bupivacaine injected into the lumbar spine at the end of surgery, compared to the patients that doctors use only EXPAREL® or bupivacaine to manage their pain. This information will help doctors determine which approach works best for patients who will receive surgery in their lumbar spine in the future.
A Prospective Study to Evaluate Robot Assisted Total Knee Replacement Outcomes
This study aims to see if outcomes for patients that receive the traditional total knee replacement surgical technique are different than the outcomes for patients that receive robot-assisted total knee replacement. The outcomes we will be tracking include: 1. Patients' self-reported awareness of their artificial joints during activities of daily living; 2. Patient's self-reported pain, other symptoms, function in daily living, function in sport and recreation, and knee-related quality of life; 3. Patients' self-reported general health perceptions, physical functioning, role limitations due to physical and...
