• Trauma
  • Disassociation at the head-trunnion interface has never been reported in hip hemiarthroplasty, and is only described in relation to primary or revision total hip replacements (THR) following dislocation or trauma to the THR. (ovid.com)

  • This work shows that currently available hemiarthroplasty implants may not be anatomically accurate, and may not reproduce native elbow kinematics. (uwo.ca)
