  • A Multicenter Study to Evaluate Functional Outcome After Knee Replacement

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Patients will be consecutively enrolled by implant. Implant groups will be those who have undergone surgery with either a ConforMIS iTotal® CR TKA or an Off-the- Shelf (OTS) system. The patient will conduct functional testing and answer questionnaires. The results will compare the ConforMIS iTotal with an Off the Shelf Knee replacement.

  • A Pilot Trial to Assess Low-Intensity Ultrasound in Osteoarthritis

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    The purpose of this exploratory trial is to investigate whether PLIUS is potentially effective as a disease and symptom modifying intervention in patients with early knee OA.

  • Effects of Catheter Location Relative to Femoral Artery on Postoperative Analgesia for Continuous Adductor Canal Blocks

    Sorry, not yet accepting patients

    Adductor canal (AC) nerve block is a commonly used modality for postoperative pain control after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). When the adductor canal is viewed by ultrasound, the femoral artery and femoral vein can easily be identified, however, the nerve that is to be blocked is often not visible. For this reason, the femoral artery is used as a landmark for the block. There currently are no studies examining the optimal placement of the nerve block catheter relative to the femoral artery in the canal. The goal of this study will be to examine the relationship between nerve catheter tip location relative to femoral artery within the adductor canal for continuous AC nerve blocks. The investigators specifically will compare postoperative pain as well as incidence of vascular puncture during the procedure and time to complete the procedure for two different catheter locations.

  • Safety and Effectiveness of Cartiva Implant in the Treatment of First CMC Joint Osteoarthritis Compared to LRTI (GRIP 2)

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study will evaluate whether Cartiva is an effective treatment for individuals with osteoarthritis of the first CMC joint in the hand compared to LRTI.
