Maximizing Patient Satisfaction With Osteoarthritis Knee Pain Richard Rhodes, MD, FAAOS Board Certified – Orthopedic Surgery Board Certified – Orthopedic Sports Medicine Texas Health Presbyterian Allen, McKinney, Plano
The Knee Rotating Hinge Joint Ends of Bone covered with smooth surface (hyaline) cartilage Soft structural meniscus cartilage helps match surface contours Ligaments provide stability
The Knee Any of the knee structures can be damaged and cause pain Today ‘s talk will be about the surface cartilage
Most common form of joint disease worldwide –Affects nearly 27 million Americans 1 –Radiographic evidence 2 >50% at 65 years of age ≈80% at 75 years of age and older –Symptomatic osteoarthritis (OA) of knee 2 12% of people aged > 60 years 1 Helmick, C., Felson, D., Lawrence, R., Gabriel, S., et all.

Disease Process Progressive loss of articular cartilage Remodeling and hypertrophy of bone Bone cysts, osteophytes, spurs

The Graying of America As the “baby boom” generation ages, the US population aged ≥65 years is increasing 1 In 2006, all baby boomers were >40 years of age, and almost half were >50 years of age 2 By 2030, 20% of the US population will be aged ≥65 years 2 Growth in Older Population 3 1.Fackelmann K.

Changes in Articular Cartilage Joint injury and deformity Periarticular tissue and fluid damage Inflammation Chronic wear and age Courtesy of Robert J. Dimeff, MD
Clinical Knee OA Signs and Symptoms Adapted from Manek NJ, Lane NE. Am Fam Physician. 2000;61: Symptoms Joint pain Pain with weight bearing Morning stiffness (<30 minutes) Joint instability or buckling Reduced function Signs Bony enlargement of joint Limited range of motion Crepitus on active motion Joint deformity

Diagnosis Surgical Intervention Non- pharmacologic treatment; Simple Analgesics OTC/ NSAIDs RX NSAIDs/ GI Protect COX-2 i IA Hyaluronans/ Corticosteroids
Non-pharmacologic Approaches Patient education Exercise Support programs Weight loss (if obese) Physical therapy Acupuncture Chiropractic Orthotics/footwear Braces Assistive devices
Why is HA Important? Found in all tissues and body fluids Lubrication Intra-articular water homeostasis Stress distribution because of viscoelastic properties Molecular Weight of Synovial HA Healthy KneeKnee With OA Avg kDa Avg kDa
Pharmacologic Treatment Options Research on Euflexxa shows 81% of patients satisfied 3 months after injection.
Principles of Operative Management Arthroscopic surgery Cartilage restoration Joint alignment procedures Joint resurfacing Partial joint replacement Total joint replacement
Knee Arthroscopy Arthroscopic surgery for the knee –as the disease progresses loose fragments and cartilage can build up in the knee –If the main symptoms are mechanical catching or locking, these can improve for several years with arthroscopic removal of the debris.
Cartilage Repair For isolated defects in surface cartilage (potholes) Works on patients age < 50 yrs 2 methods –Transplant surface cartilage and bone –Culture patients own cartilage cells and replace in defect –www.cartilagerestorationtexas.com
Cartilage Restoration Center Osteochondral Allograft transplantation Autograft Chondrocyte Transfer (Carticel)
Knee resurfacing/ Partial Replacement For patients with limited osteoarthritis or isolated arthritis pain Partial knee replacement can be a great option BICOMPARTMENTAL PATELLOFEMORAL UNICONDYLAR LATERAL
Knee Replacement For advanced osteoarthritis resurfacing the entire knee or Total Knee Arthroplasty can be a life changing surgery Advancements in materials can push the lifespan of implants to 30 yrs or more with reasonable activity
MAKOplasty ® An Important Treatment Option for Early to Mid-Stage Knee Osteoarthritis Innovative robotic arm technology, RIO ®, assists the surgeon in achieving natural knee kinematics and optimal results with consistently reproducible precision Pre-surgical planning details the technique for bone preparation and customized implant positioning using a CT scan of the patient’s knee Tactile technology with 3-D visualization for controlled resurfacing within the pre-defined planned resection volume Minimally invasive and bone sparing with minimal tissue trauma for a more rapid recovery and return to an active lifestyle
31 Prevalence of Osteoarthritis Unicondylar MAKOplasty ® –10% of all TKA patients are estimated with tibiofemoral OA 1 –Lateral OA is estimated to be 10-12% of the unicompartmental market –90% of TKA patient candidates chose not to have a TKA 2 Patellofemoral MAKOplasty ® –24% of OA patients may present with isolated patellofemoral disease 1,3 Bicompartmental MAKOplasty ® –40-65% of OA patients present with tibiofemoral-patellofemoral disease 1,3,4 1.Duncan, R., Hay, E., Saklatvala, J, Croft P.

32 Treating Osteoarthritis of the Knee with Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) TKA limitations –Requires extensive rehabilitation –Addresses late stage osteoarthritis (OA) –Aggressively removes healthy cartilage when treating early stage osteoarthritis of the knee MAKOplasty ® partial knee resurfacing with the RESTORIS ® family of knee implant systems –Restores the natural knee without the confines of conventional instrumentation –ACL and PCL sparing alternative to TKA –Promotes better kinematics –Retained proprioception Patients treated with a total knee implant never forget they had a joint replacement and are forced to modify their lifestyle to suit their new knee 1 1.

33 MAKOplasty ® Partial Knee Resurfacing Improved surgical outcomes Less implant wear or loosening Bone sparing Smaller incision Less scarring Reduced blood loss Minimal hospitalization Rapid recovery Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any knee surgical procedure, including MAKOplasty®. A doctor can explain these risks to help patients determine if MAKOplasty® is right for them. MAKOplasty ® potentially offers the following benefits when compared to TKA:
34 MAKOplasty ® Partial Knee Resurfacing Utilizes surgeon-interactive robotic arm technology Brings the advantages of minimally invasive partial knee resurfacing to a broader patient population by providing consistently reproducible precision Pre-surgical plans are created using CT scan data for precise pre-operative planning of implant size, orientation and placement Surgeon interactive robotic arm guides the surgeon through each well-defined surgical plan Integrity of implants are based on clinical designs that preserve critical tissue and bone stock for improved outcomes

36 Clinical Results-Radiographic Outcomes
37 Surgery – what is really involved Try non-surgical treatment first When you are ready for long term relief talk to your surgeon about options
38 Surgery – what is really involved Presurgery – minimize your risks –Control medical problems (diabetes, heart) –Maximize muscle conditioning –Plan your schedule Transportation Sleeping bathing
39 Surgery – what is really involved Partial knee replacement –One night or outpatient Total Knee –2-3 day hospital stay Up walking 1 st day post op Rehab 6 – 12 wks –In and outpatient vs at home Blood Clot prevention –Stockings, blood thinners 6 wks
40 Surgery – what is really involved When can I golf? –Usually by 2 months after partial and 3 months after total knee When can I exercise? –Bicycle, Eliptical, Swimming as soon as skin heals –Running is not recommended with knee implants When can I travel? –It is best to remain where you have easy access to your surgeon for the first 2 weeks once the major risks are over –Blood clot risks are increased with long travel so we recommend caution for the first 3 months
41 Surgery – what is really involved Follow up –2 weeks from surgery –We use only internal sutures so there is nothing to remove –Progress checks at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year –Routine Xrays are recommended with any joint implant every few years even if there are no problems – it is easier to treat any problems early
