what is the CPT code for Left cemented Duracon total knee arthroplasty? User: Medial compartment and patellofemoral component osteoarthritis User: Medial compartment and patellofemoral component osteoarthritis icd 9
Weegy: While the first two compartments are the most important for the patient to walk on flat terrain, the third compartment (patello-femoral joint) is involved in activities like walking on inclined terrain, going up and down stairs, kneeling, squatting, [ and rising from the sitting position. Knee arthritis frequently affects two or more compartments of the knee. However, in rare cases, arthritis may be isolated to the patellofemoral compartment. This condition, which is more commonly seen in women, is characterized by pain in the front part of the knee (behind the patella, or kneecap) that typically worsens when the patient walks on inclined terrain, goes up and down stairs, knees, squats, and rises from the sitting position (while walking on level ground is often unaffected). Diagnosis of Arthritis in the Knee “Patellofemoral arthritis is diagnosed when loss of cartilage is seen in the joint on x-rays or MRI and no other compartment of the knee is affected,” explains Friedrich Boettner, MD, Assistant Attending Orthopaedic Surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). (Please Note: Many patients with osteoarthritis of the knee first develop the disease in the medial compartment of the knee and subsequently develop patellofemoral arthritis; however, this article focuses on patients who develop arthritis limited to the patellofemoral joint.) According to Beth Shubin Stein MD, Assistant Attending Orthopaedic Surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, patellofemoral joint arthritis is more common in women than in men. Based on the radiographs and MRI studies, your physician can determine if you carry anatomical factors that further predispose you to this condition: a radiographic parameter that is frequently found to be abnormal in patients with isolated patellofemoral arthritis is the “Q angle.” ] (More)
