INTRODUCTION Iliopsoas muscle hemorrhage in patients with hemophilia is a serious complication with relevant related morbidity. AREAS COVERED A Cochrane Library and PubMed (MEDLINE) search of studies related to iliopsoas hematomas in hemophilia was analyzed. Pain in the hip joint area and femoral nerve involvement in people with hemophilia should alert physicians to the likelihood of a hemorrhage of the iliopsoas muscle. Clinically, reduced hip range of motion and deficient motor and sensory fun...

BACKGROUND Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a widely used technique, the purpose of which is to improve or eliminate knee pain produced by osteoarthritis. One of the most severe complications of primary TKA is periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). To reduce the risk of PJI, some surgeons use antibiotic-loaded bone cement (ALBC) in primary TKA, but others do not. In other words, the routine use of ALBC in primary TKA is controversial. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this article is to perform a narrativ...

Abstract In patients with hemophilia, levels of uCTX-II and sCS846 increase 5 days after joint hemorrhage with respect to the initial value. In other words, in patients with established hemophilic arthropathy, the aforesaid biomarker of joint tissue damage augments shortly after the first joint hemorrhage. In patients with hemophilia treated on demand, a correlation has been found between magnetic resonance imaging scores and the CS846 biomarker. Patients with hemophilia having more than one joi...

BACKGROUND: It is important to discard those practices that do not add value. As a result, several initiatives have emerged. All of them try to improve patient safety and the use of health resources. PURPOSE: Present a compendium of ' do not do recommendations ' in the context of hemophilia. METHODS: A review of the literature and current clinical guidelines has been made, based on the best evidence available to date. RESULTS: The following 13 recommendations stand out: 1) Do not delay the admin...

Increased prosthetic ankle surgeries have led to a corresponding increase in prosthetic revision surgeries. It is important first to identify the appropriate candidates on whom to perform a revision and implant a new prosthesis. A thorough physical examination allows us to identify a malalignment of the hindfoot or tibia in different planes, which will need to be corrected with additional surgeries during the revision. Imaging tests identify the cause of the prosthetic failure, which in most cas...

Opioids are frequently used for the treatment of preoperative and postoperative pain among patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The greatest risk for prolonged opioid use after TKA is preoperative opioid use. Despite the effectiveness of multimodal postoperative pain protocols, younger patients with preoperative history of narcotic use require additional opioids and are at a higher risk for complications and a greater length of stay. At 90 days, respiratory complications were the m...

: : The role of the orthopedic surgeon is to use invasive and/or surgical methods to treat the musculoskeletal disorders suffered by persons with hemophilia, always within the context of a multidisciplinary team. Muscle hematomas must be diagnosed as early as possible and be subjected to continuous treatment until full resolution, as they are associated with the risk of severe complications (compartment syndromes and pseudotumors). Arthrocentesis (extraction of intra-articular blood) is recommen...
