TKR (Total knee replacement)

Name: Ng Ah Geok Age/Sex: 67/F Occupation: house wife Doctor: Dr. J.K. Lee (surgeon) Dr. J.Lam (Anesthetist) Reason for admission @ 7/7/08 H/O having Rt knee pain X 2 yrs, seen Dr. Lee on 3/7/08, advice for above op. Diagnosis: 9/7/08 - Rt TKR GA &

Past medical history: Hypt diagnosed 3 yrs ago DM Past surgical history: Nil Allergy: ? Anti-inflammatory medication Medication: T.Atenolol 100mg dly antihypt (beta blockers) Viartril-s 2 tabs tds

A degenerative condition attacking the articular cartilage & aggravated by an impaired blood supply, mainly affecting weight-baring joints & causing pain. Osteophytes formed at the edge of the joint.

Primary OA (ageing) Metabolic factors (hypertiroidism) Genetic factors (< synthesize collagen) Chemical factors ( medication such as steroid will affect the producing of the enzyme to digest the collagen at the sinovial membrane) Mechanical factors (pressure to the joints)

Secondary OA Trauma- abnormality at the surface artikular Congenital deformity Obesity, occupation & exercise pressure to the abnormal joints Past inflammation sepsis, rheumatoid artritis

Pain, usually made worse by activities that involve weight bearing such as standing. Less movable & eventually may not be able to fully straighten or bend The irregular cartilage surface cause joints to grind, grate, crackle when they are moved The ligament, which surround & support the joints become unstable.

A total knee replacement involves cutting away the damaged bone of the knee joint and replacing it with a prosthesis. This new joint prevents the bones from rubbing together and provides a smooth knee joint. Knee replacement surgery is performed to treat advanced or end-stage arthritis. When arthritis in the knee joint or joints had progressed to the point where medical management is not effective, or deformity has become severe and debilitating, knee replacement surgery might be indicated.

Infection in the artificial joint Neurovascular (ie, nerve and/or blood vessels) damage Wear and tear of prosthesis (ie, the knee implant device) due to heavy use Stiffness of the knee if scar tissue develops Complications involving the lungs, heart, gastrointestinal, or neurological system Failure to relieve knee pain Loss of the leg due to blood clots Death

Start the following exercises as soon as patient is able. Patient can begin these in the recovery room shortly after surgery. Patient may feel uncomfortable at first, but these exercises will speed their recovery and actually diminish patient postoperative pain. Quadriceps Sets Tighten the thigh muscle. Try to straighten the knee. Hold for 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat this exercise approximately 10 times during a two minute period, rest one minute and repeat. Continue until the thigh feels

Tighten the thigh muscle with the knee fully straightened on the bed, as with the Quad set. Lift the leg several inches. Hold for five to 10 seconds. Slowly lower. Repeat until the thigh feels fatigued. Patient also can do leg raises while sitting. Fully tighten the thigh muscle and hold the knee fully straightened with the leg unsupported. Repeat as above. Continue these exercises periodically until full strength returns to the thigh.

Move the foot up and down rhythmically by contracting the calf and shin muscles. Perform this exercise periodically for two to three minutes, two or three times an hour in the recovery room. Continue this exercise until patient are fully recovered and all ankle and lower-leg swelling has subsided.

Place a small rolled towel just above the heel so that it is not touching the bed. Tighten the thigh. Try to fully straighten the knee and to touch the back of the knee to the bed. Hold fully straightened for five to 10 seconds. Repeat until the thigh feels fatigued.

Bend the knee as much as possible while sliding the foot on the bed. Hold the knee in a maximally bent position for 5 to 10 seconds and then straighten. Repeat several times until the leg feels fatigued or until patient can completely bend the knee.

While sitting at bedside or in a chair with the thigh supported, place the foot behind the heel of the operated knee for support. Slowly bend the knee as far as you can. Hold the knee in this position for 5 to 10 seconds. Repeat several times until the leg feels fatigued or until patient can completely bend the knee.

While sitting at bedside or in a chair with the thigh supported, bend the knee as far as patient can until the foot rests on the floor. With the foot lightly resting on the floor, slide the upper body forward in the chair to increase the knee bend. Hold for 5 to 10 seconds. Straighten the knee fully. Repeat several times until the leg feels fatigued or until patient can completely bend

PAIN RELATED TO THE OPERATION WOUND Asses the pain level by interview the patient & the pain chart to plan next nursing intervention. Teach patient the breathing exercise to reduce th
