[/wc_accordion_section] [Wc_accordion collapse = "1"] [Wc_accordion_section title = "> What is knee joint art rose?"] Osteoarthritis means a loss of cartilage in a joint. At knee joint art rose, the cartilage that usually covers the knee surface is more or less vanished. The cartilage makes the surface of the thighs and its joints softly glide toward each other, and when the cartilage is bad or gone, Ben's ends connect directly to each other. When wearing the knee joint, most often the inner joints will be framed. The outer joints and the knee bowl are less frequent. [/wc_accordion_section] [Wc_accordion collapse = "1"] [Wc_accordion_section title = "> How does treatment take place?"] Medical care aches and works can be treated with medications. Most often, regular pain tablets are used such as Paracetamol (which do not provide gastric distress or increase the risk of bleeding) and so called Antiflogistika (which should be avoided when suspect ulcers, increased bleeding tendency, and during pregnancy). A combination of these preparations can have a beneficial effect. Glucosaminer has also had påvisbar effect at some art rose patients. Surgical treatment When Leddestruksjonen is gone far and the pains have become difficult to treat with medications and physical therapy is surgical treatment required. A form of operation is called the osteotomy and implies that the paragraph load is changed by a wedge of the legs taken away. Approximately 80% (8 out of 10) undergoing such an operation gets rid of the pain and still has good movement in the knee. Osteotomier is especially suited to patients younger than 60 years old and has lighter osteoarthritis. The portions of the cartilage that is destroyed by osteoarthritis can also be replaced with an artificial knee joints of plastic and metal. This is called Artroplastikk and is a good treatment especially for elderly patients. The method was developed in the 1970 century and the results have since improved. The vast majority of which circumvent such an operation has continued to be a stable and painless knee. However, everyone cannot assume that the movement of such a new knee becomes as good as a normal joint. [/wc_accordion_section] [Wc_accordion collapse = "1"] [Wc_accordion_section title = "> What can one expect?"] The dentures that are inserted may be of various kinds, but studies show that a cemented total prosthesis will, in most cases, be the best. One can also insert a uniprotese which only replaces the part of the joint that is attacked by osteoarthritis. It is about 10% (1 out of 10) operated with a knee prosthesis that can use such a prosthesis. The advantage of such a prosthesis is better beveglighet and faster rehabilitation. The danger is that a somewhat faster must have a reoperation (8 – 10 years). Less surgical cuts, improved instrumentation, and improved surgical techniques allow time for a hospital to be betydlig reduced in recent years. In some cases the prosthesis may loosen and need to be replaced. The number of reoperations has decreased considerably in recent years. Today, about 5% (1 out of 20) of patients operated with prosthetic knees need to be reworked. Even the risk of deep infection has sunk in recent years. Less than half a percent of anyone reviewing a knee prosthesis operation is getting deep infection today. One does note that an after surgery for the total prosthesis has some pain in the knee. This is quite normal and one will get analgesic treatment.
