O presente estudo avaliou os benefícios do uso do Hylano GF-20 no pós-operatório de artroscopias do joelho para lavagem e desbridamento por artrose.Foram estudados 20 pacientes submetidos à artroscopia em 20 joelhos que apresentavam artrose até grau 3 da classificação com sintomas de dor e bloqueio no referido joelho e não obtiveram melhora ao tratamento conservador, sendo então realizada lavagem associada a desbridamento leve condral e meniscal de acordo com a necessidade de cada caso.Os pacientes foram divididos em 2 grupos sendo que em um dos grupos foi feita apenas a artroscopia e noutro grupo artroscopia associada ao uso de 3 infiltrações realizadas semanalmente de Hylano GF-20.Os pacientes foram avaliados nas variáveis dor em repouso noturna, dor durante movimento com sobrecarga de 10% do peso corporal, dor durante o movimento mais doloroso do joelho afetado com escala visual e a variável quantidade diária de diclofenaco potássico ingerida para alívio da dor no joelho afetado. Os resultados estatísticos mostraram melhora significativa em todas as variáveis estudadas nos pacientes do grupo submetidos ao uso de infiltrações com o Hylano GF-20 no pós-operatório de artroscopias do joelho por artrose no período de 6 meses.
Protrusio acetabuli is a disease characterized by a deformity of the medial wall of the acetabulum with a progressive migration of the femoral head into the pelvic cavity, resulting in some mechanical disorders, pain and limited limb hip movement. It was first described by Otto in 1824 as an intrapelvic protusion of the femoral head. It is considered multifactorial, and it is suggested that there is a heredity background to this disease. It is classified as primary (75,3%) or secundary (24,7%) according to aetiology; mild, moderate and severe radiologically. This review aims to present some treatment techniques using arthroplasties which are several and little explored. As in the literature, the choice was bone graft since there is no migration of the cemented acetabulum and no necessity of a titanium cup of great diameter.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of Acupuncture in the postoperative arthroscopic knee surgery, using "The Opposite Side" technique from the Traditional Chinese Medicine. The 36 pain in the knee were grouped according to the disorders found during the arthroscopic surgery: 50% with isolated lesion of the medial meniscus, 19.44% with lesion of the medial meniscus associated to knee arthrosis ,11.11% with lesion of lateral meniscus associated to knee arthrosis, 8.33% with isolated lesion of lateral meniscus of the knee, 2.77% lesion of both isolated meniscus, 2.77%with lesion of both isolated meniscus, 2.77% with chrondomalacia patella, and 2.77% were free body carrier. Group I, 18 patients (Acupuncture) were submitted to 20 acupuncture session. Contralateral points of acupuncture were performed in the injured knee. Group II, 18 patients (Physiotherapy) were submitted to 20 physiotherapy sessions under the administration of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. The non-parametrical analysis of the results showed that either the subjective data (pain intensity, difficulty in walking, in crouching, on going upstairs/downstairs, on running, on using some support walking) presented good results in the majority of the studied parameters. Although, the results of the treatment were similar, the acupuncture showed better results since it presented earlier improvement than the physiotherapy.
