Knee injury is one of the most common injuries in sports activities or events. Failure to detect it would jeopardize the athletes’ future. Knee image processing is studied for the development of an aided system to identify knee injury. However, medical experts analyze the MRI images using their naked eyes. This increases the possibilities for false analysis. To overcome the problem, this study aims to develop an intelligent system, which involves image processing system to assist the medical experts in making decisions to decide on the types of ACL knee injury. The end results in the identification of ACL injury is in the form of a classification based on crucial tear (CT), partial tear (PT), and normal classes. The analysis of results based
A patient arrives at the hospital for their knee replacement surgery that has been scheduled for today. The patient is checked in at admitting and is called back to the pre-operative area by the nurse. The patient changes and the nursing staff begin to take the patient’s vital signs, review the patient’s history, draw blood for lab work and they let the patient know what to expect before, during and after surgery. The surgeon arrives and checks in with the patient, asks if they have any final questions before surgery and then leaves for the operating room to prepare. The patient is taken to the operating room, anesthesia is given, and the operation begins. The procedure goes smoothly and the patient is taken to the post-op area. When the patient comes out of the anesthesia, the surgeon

DOI: 01/14/2011. Patient is a 35-year old male Spanish, regular employee who sustained a work-related injury while bending over to pick up air hose off floor. Per OMNI, patient was diagnosed with Right Knee Strain. MRI of the right knee dated 02/03/2011 revealed menisci, cruciate ligaments, and collateral ligaments, small acute impaction injury with full-thickness cartilage defect in medial femoral condyle, small displaced osteochondral lesion of the inferior medial trochlea, mild diffuse patellar tendinosis, and moderate joint effusion without loose intra-articular chondral or osteochondral body. As per office notes dated 3/24/16, the patient is an obese patient who suffers from ongoing knee and lower back pain which indicates her for aquatic
Health History: A 25-year-old male injured his left knee in a recent skiing accident. The patient stated that he lost his balance because the inner edge of his right ski got caught while skiing. This resulted in the right leg being externally rotated followed by and audible “pop” as he lost footing. By evening, the right knee joint had become swollen, causing intense pain. The primary care physician referred the case to an orthopedist.
The patient underwent repeat MRI of his right knee on 1/28/16. As per office notes dated 7/25/16, review of system revealed that the patient has a history of weakness, shortness of breath, joint pain, muscular weakness, stiffness and muscular pain, headache and dizziness, as well as nervousness. The patient presents today stating that he would like to have his rod removed. He says that his right knee continues to give out on him and he wants to go on longer than 2 mile hikes without having knee pain and feeling instability. Examination of the right lower extremity revealed that the patient’s incisions are clean, dry, intact, and well-healed. The patient’s knee demonstrates discomfort with patellar grind-the symptoms are consistent with his last several exams, and are relatively unchanged. Knee is stable to varus and valgus stress, however, valgus stress does cause some discomfort on the lateral side. Distal neurovascular status is intact. Impression includes right displaced comminuted fracture of shaft of right femur, initial encounter for closed fracture; right chondromalacia patellae, right knee, and right sprain of other specified parts of right knee, initial
The medical evidence shows the claimant had twisting injury to left knee with lateral meniscus tear on 7/1/13. He was also noted to have preexisting osteoarthritis of the left knee. The claimant underwent arthrosopic partial meniscectomy on the left knee on 2/27/14 with some symptomatic relief. An orthopedic report on 1/13/14 noted ongoing left knee pain. The physical exam showed tenderness; pain with flexion and extension; positive McMuray's test and negative Drawer's test. X-rays of left knee on 1/13/15 showed mild left knee osteoarthritis.
Teaching the importance of activity and exercise has a huge significance to the patient especially she undergone surgery, left knee arthroplasty. Lack of adequate knee exercise after surgery will lead to various complications that are dangerous and life threatening such as deep vein thrombosis, stroke and pulmonary embolism. Another complication that is associated with inadequate movement of the limbs and extremities is muscle contracture (LeMone et.al, 2011 p 142). Patient has a high risk of developing these complications. We wanted to educate the patient about these so that we could lower her risk at some point. We believe that even when patient is lying down on the bed, she can do a lot of things to improved her health and prevent
The patient stated that he began experiencing painful swelling in his right knee over a decade ago. A large mass grew around the knee and he underwent a total knee arthroplasty. Not long after the arthroplasty of his right knee, he began experiencing similar symptoms in his left knee and right elbow.
DN is a 68 year old Caucasian male who lives in Pomona, Missouri. On September 14, 2009, DN underwent a scheduled left total knee arthroplasty at Baxter County Regional Medical Center. A consultation appointment about a total knee arthroplasty was scheduled when DN had increasing pain in his knees while doing chores and working on his dairy farm. The increasing pain DN was having been due to a history of osteoarthritis and the wear-and-tear on his joints throughout his life, no specific injury was noted. Depending on the outcome of the left knee, DN was consulted on having his right knee done in the future
