The article offers studies concerning orthopaedics. One study focuses on the elbow arthroplasty which is more effective than open reduction and internal fixation in improving functional outcomes and reducing reoperation rates. Another study focuses on outpatient physiotherapy which did not improve range of motion after total knee arthroplasty. Details of procedure of the study are also included.

    Purpose: Total knee arthroplasty revision has wound healing deficits of up to 20 %. Defects in the knee region of multimorbid patients are hard to treat as complete explantation and revision arthroplasty is often too burdensome for them. In this study, we present our results with flaps for the...
