non cemented: more stressful to the bone and won't allow full WB usually. better for younger and more active patients

2

posterior THA precautions

flexion >90, adduction and IR

3

Femur ORIF WB

NWB up to 2 weeks, then PWB

4

CPM for TKA

Not indicated for uncomplicated TKA

5

cemented vs. non cemented TKA

cemented: WB as tolerated
non cemented: WB progressed similar to fracture healing

6

TKA
ROM guidelines
AROM guidelines
Resisted exercise guidelines

0-90 within 2 weeks
0-120 within 3-4 weeks
can begin immediately post-op
Begin week 2-3

7

THA timeline for isometric vs. AROM

isometric can be started immediately, AROM depends on surgeon

8

ACL repair WB

9

ACL Hamstring tendon pro/con

Pro: fewer symptoms postoperatively, greater RTA, earlier rehabilitation
Cons: more expensive, more difficult procedure, rehab can take longer

10

ACL Patellar Tendon pro/con

Pro: Stronger, less expensive, faster healing
Con: potential for anterior knee pain and patellofemoral OA later, possible knee extension deficit, quad atrophy
