What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

33. The Effect of Prosthetic Design and Polyethylene Type on the Risk of Revision for Infection in Total Knee Replacement: An Analysis of 336,997 Prostheses from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry (Abstract)

The Effect of Prosthetic Design and Polyethylene Type on the Risk of Revision for Infection in Total Knee Replacement: An Analysis of 336,997 Prostheses from the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry Periprosthetic infection following total knee replacement remains alarmingly frequent, is devastating for patients, and is an increasingly substantial public health burden. While both the prosthetic design elements and type of polyethylene used in total knee (...) replacement can independently affect survivorship of the prosthesis, their influence on the risk of revision for infection is unknown. Therefore, we examined the effects of total knee prosthetic design and type of polyethylene bearing on the long-term revision risk for nonacute infection following total knee replacement by comparing 4 different cohorts: patients who had minimally stabilized total knee prostheses with crosslinked polyethylene (XLPE) bearing surfaces, minimally stabilized total knee

35. Knee replacement. (Abstract)

Knee replacement. Knee replacement surgery is one of the most commonly done and cost-effective musculoskeletal surgical procedures. The numbers of cases done continue to grow worldwide, with substantial variation in utilisation rates across regions and countries. The main indication for surgery remains painful knee osteoarthritis with reduced function and quality of life. The threshold for intervention is not well defined, and is influenced by many factors including patient and surgeon (...) preference. Most patients have a very good clinical outcome after knee replacement, but multiple studies have reported that 20% or more of patients do not. So despite excellent long-term survivorship, more work is required to enhance this procedure and development is rightly focused on increasing the proportion of patients who have successful pain relief after surgery. Changing implant design has historically been a target for improving outcome, but there is greater recognition that improvements can

Low molecular weight heparin versus other anti-thrombotic agents for prevention of venous thromboembolic events after total hip or total knee replacement surgery: a systematic review and meta-analysis Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is an important complication following total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement (TKR) surgeries. Aim of this study was to comprehensively compare the clinical outcomes of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH) with other anticoagulants in patients who

37. Computer-Assisted Compared with Conventional Total Knee Replacement: A Multicenter Parallel-Group Randomized Controlled Trial (Abstract)

Computer-Assisted Compared with Conventional Total Knee Replacement: A Multicenter Parallel-Group Randomized Controlled Trial We previously reported the short-term radiographic and functional results of a randomized controlled trial (RCT) comparing computer-assisted and conventionally performed total knee replacement. We currently report the 2-year clinical results from this trial.One hundred and ninety patients were randomly allocated to undergo either computer-assisted or conventional total (...) knee replacement. One hundred and seventy-two patients were available for clinical evaluation at 2 years, and 167 (97%) of those answered all patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs), including the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Score (KOOS), Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC), Knee Society Score (KSS), visual analog scale (VAS), and EuroQol-5 Dimensions (EQ-5D). Patients and clinical evaluators were blinded to the method of surgery. Surgical outcome

Day-case surgery for total hip and knee replacement: How safe and effective is it? Multimodal protocols for pain control, blood loss management and thromboprophylaxis have been shown to benefit patients by being more effective and as safe (fewer iatrogenic complications) as conventional protocols.Proper patient selection and education, multimodal protocols and a well-defined clinical pathway are all key for successful day-case arthroplasty.By potentially being more effective, cheaper than
