Is revision as good as primary hip replacement? A comparison of quality of life. (1/2973)

Primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most effective ways of improving quality of life (QoL). We have compared the improvement in QoL in 62 patients who had a cemented revision of a THA with that of 62 primary replacements. One year after operation the median QoL score had been significantly improved in both groups; from 0.870 to 0.990 in the primary group (p < 0.0001) and from 0.870 to 0.980 in the revised group (p < 0.0001). There was no significant difference in the improvement in scores between the groups (p = 0.29). When reviewed after four years there was no difference in the pain score for either group (p = 0.89), but that for function had deteriorated significantly. This was associated with revision surgery (p = 0.018) and a low preoperative QoL score (p = 0.004). We conclude that both primary and revision operations give a significant improvement in the QoL but function after revision may be less durable than after a primary arthroplasty.  (+info)

Analysis of 118 second-generation metal-on-metal retrieved hip implants. (2/2973)

Osteolysis is due to particulate wear debris and is responsible for the long-term failure of total hip replacements. It has stimulated the development of alternative joint surfaces such as metal-on-metal or ceramic-on-ceramic implants. Since 1988 the second-generation metal-on-metal implant Metasul has been used in over 60 000 hips. Analysis of 118 retrieved specimens of the head or cup showed rates of wear of approximately 25 microm for the whole articulation per year in the first year, decreasing to about 5 microm per year after the third. Metal surfaces have a 'self-polishing' capacity. Scratches are worn out by further joint movement. Volumetric wear was decreased some 60-fold compared with that of metal-on-polyethylene implants, suggesting that second-generation metal-on-metal prostheses may considerably reduce osteolysis.  (+info)

Low-friction arthroplasty of the hip using alumina ceramic and cross-linked polyethylene. A ten-year follow-up report. (3/2973)

We report the results of our continued review of 14 hip arthroplasties using alumina ceramic femoral heads with cross-linked polyethylene cups. There have been no complications and a very low rate of penetration. This was 0.02 mm per year after an initial 'bedding-in' period of two years. There has been no change in the mean rate between our earlier study at six years and the current results at 10 to 11 years. The use of these bearing surfaces appears to reduce the potential amount of polyethylene debris and may provide the next logical stage in the development of the Charnley low-friction arthroplasty.  (+info)

Cement migration after THR. A comparison of charnley elite and exeter femoral stems using RSA. (4/2973)

Studies using roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis (RSA) have shown that the femoral components of cemented total hip replacements (THR) migrate distally relative to the bone, but it is not clear whether this occurs at the cement-implant or the cement-bone interface or within the cement mantle. Our aim was to determine where this migration occurred, since this has important implications for the way in which implants function and fail. Using RSA we compared for two years the migration of the tip of the stem with that of the cement restrictor for two different designs of THR, the Exeter and Charnley Elite. We have assumed that if the cement restrictor migrates, then at least part of the cement mantle also migrates. Our results have shown that the Exeter migrates distally three times faster than the Charnley Elite and at different interfaces. With the Exeter migration was at the cement-implant interface whereas with the Charnley Elite there was migration at both the cement-bone and the cement-implant interfaces.  (+info)

Subsidence of a non-polished stem in revisions of the hip using impaction allograft. Evaluation with radiostereometry and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. (5/2973)

We revised 24 consecutive hips with loosening of the femoral stem using impaction allograft and a cemented stem with an unpolished proximal surface. Repeated radiostereometric examinations for up to two years showed a slow rate of subsidence with a mean of 0.32 mm (-2.0 to +0.31). Fifteen cases followed for a further year showed the same mean subsidence after three years, indicating stabilisation. A tendency to retroversion of the stems was noted between the operation and the last follow-up. Retroversion was also recorded when displacement of the stem was studied in ten of the patients after two years. Repeated determination of bone mineral density showed an initial loss after six months, followed by recovery to the postoperative level at two years. Defects in the cement mantle and malalignment of the stem were often noted on postoperative radiographs, but did not correlate with the degrees of migration or displacement. After one year, increasing frequency of trabecular remodelling or resorption of the graft was observed in the greater trochanter and distal to the tip of the stem. Cortical repair was noted distally and medially (Gruen regions 3, 5 and 6). Migration of the stems was the lowest reported to date, which we attribute to the improved grafting technique and to the hardness of the graft.  (+info)

The inadequacy of standard radiographs in detecting flaws in the cement mantle. (6/2973)

Radiological assessment of the cement mantle is used routinely to determine the outcome of total hip replacement. We performed a simulated replacement arthroplasty on cadaver femora and took standard postoperative radiographs. The femora were then sectioned into 7 mm slices starting at the calcar, and high-resolution faxitron radiographs were taken of these sections. Analysis of the faxitron images showed that defects in the cement mantle were observed up to 100 times more frequently than on the standard films. We therefore encourage the search for a better technique in assessing the cement mantle.  (+info)

The orthopaedic aspects of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia. (7/2973)

Five cases of multiple epiphyseal dysplasia (MED) were treated from 1985-1996 at the Orthopaedics and Trauma Department of SSK Izmir Educational Hospital. Four patients were female and one was male. The pedigrees of the first two female patients had the same features of inter-related marriages. The patients have been followed up for 5.5-11 years (average of 7.5 years). Surgical operations were mostly required in the lower limbs. Problems in the hips required adductor myotomy, the Soutter procedure, total hip replacement, and pertrochanteric extension osteotomy. Management of the knees required supracondylar shortening and extension osteotomy of the femur, high tibial extension osteotomy, debridement of the knee joint with removal of osteophytes, ogleotomy of the patellar lengthening of the knee flexors and posterior capsulotomy. Interphalangeal arthrodesis for hammer toes, extension osteotomy of the head of the first metatarsals, and Kellers operation were carried out in the foot. In the upper limb decompression and anterior transposition of the ulnar nerve, debridement of the elbow joint, extension and valgus osteotomy of the distal radius, and extension osteotomy of the head of the first metacarpal were required.  (+info)

Survey of patient satisfaction after total arthroplasty of the hip. (8/2973)

We have carried out a prospective study based on a series of interviews and written questionnaires completed by 45 patients who underwent surgery, in an effort to evaluate subjective patient satisfaction while recovering from total hip arthroplasty. These patients all had operation for primary osteoarthrosis and none had previously experienced orthopaedic procedures or psychiatric pathology. Our study demonstrated that using standard quality-of-life questionnaires to evaluate patient's subjective assessments is difficult, if not impossible. It also established the need to combine questionnaires and open-ended interviews in order to reveal subjective elements that should be taken into consideration by the surgeon before deciding upon the need to operate. The analysis of the data collected in this study highlights the fact that 50% of the patients express feelings of frustration during a three month-long period following the operation, in spite of their experiencing actual improvements of the operated hip. This phase of temporary frustration winds down easily but it is only a year after undergoing arthroplasty that some patients will enjoy all the subjective benefits of the operation.  (+info)

Lower Dislocation Rate Following Total Hip Arthroplasty via Direct Anterior Approach than via Posterior Approach: Five-Year-Average Follow-Up Results
Multimodal analgesia following total hip arthroplasty has been shown to improve patient satisfaction, participation with physical therapy, and allow early return to self care. Liposomal bupivacaine is a formulation of local anesthetic which has the potential to provide anesthesia for up to 72 hours following administration. The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of liposomal bupivacaine with bupivacaine following total hip arthroplasty. A retrospective chart review was performed on 28 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty or hip resurfacing who received intraoperative administration of liposomal bupivacaine. A control group of 30 patients who had previously undergone total hip arthroplasty or hip resurfacing and had received intraoperative administration of bupivacaine also underwent a chart review. Length of stay, post-operative opioid use, and pain scores were compared for both groups. The average length of stay in the study group was 1.93 days and the control group length of

[online]. 2014, vol.13, n.1, pp.54-60. ISSN 2309-8309.. INTRODUCTION: Surgical management of younger patients requiring primary total hip arthroplasty is challenging due to increased activity levels, physical demands, and the need for longevity of implanted components. There is debate regarding the most suitable component type, and the optimal fixation, should a stemmed component be utilised. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed a sequential group of patients, aged 55 years or younger at the time of surgery, who underwent uncemented primary total hip arthroplasty, and are currently at a minimum of 5 years post operation. Eighty-eight primary uncemented total hip replacements were performed between January 2004 and December 2006. The patient ages ranged from 18 to 55 years with a mean of 43.1 years at time of ...

Sciatic nerve injuries following total hip arthroplasty are disabling complications. Although degrees of injury are variable from neuropraxia to neurotmesis, mechanical irritation of sciatic nerve might be occurred by protruding hardware. This case shows endoscopic decompression for protruded acetabular screw irritating sciatic nerve, the techniques described herein may permit broader arthroscopic/endoscopic applications for management of complications after reconstructive hip surgery. An 80-year-old man complained of severe pain and paresthesias following acetabular component revision surgery. Physical findings included right buttock pain with radiating pain to lower extremity. Radiographs and computed tomography imaging showed that the sharp end of protruded screw invaded greater sciatic foramen anterior to posterior and distal to proximal direction at sciatic notch level. A protruding tip of the acetabular screw at the sciatic notch was decompressed by use of techniques gained from experience

Introduction: Although periprosthetic fractures of the femur have been well documented, insufficiency fractures following total hip arthroplasty (THA) have been rarely described. We report a case of an insufficiency fracture in the distal tibia and fibula that occurred after THA. Case Report: A 54-year-old woman presented with severe pain in the bilateral hip joints and was diagnosed with end-stage osteoarthritis. She underwent THA on the right side. Although the postoperative course was uneventful, she suddenly experienced severe pain and swelling in the right leg without any history of trauma 22 weeks after the surgery. She was first diagnosed with cellulitis by her local doctor and was treated with oral antibiotics. Her symptoms persisted, and she returned to our hospital 1 month later. Her right distal leg and ankle were diffusely swollen and tender. Plain radiographs revealed a sclerotic linear zone in the distal tibia and fibula. She was diagnosed with insufficiency fractures in the distal tibia

Y1 - 1987/1/1. N2 - Failure of cemented total hip arthroplasty can emerge from several causes and may be associated with severe bone loss in the proximal femur with a marked diminution in functional capacity of the limb. This is a preliminary report of 14 patients with revision operations for failed total hip arthroplasty. Freeze-dried allograft bone was implanted for restoration of extensive bone loss in the proximal femur. All 14 patients were operated on to salvage failed cemented total hip arthroplasties. Allografts were employed only for large proximal femoral deficiencies. In these patients the alternatives were either an unstable excision arthroplasty or a femoral deficient prosthesis. After revision, all patients had complete bony union and ambulated with the assistance of a cane with greatly increased ...

The impact of surgeon handedness on acetabular cup orientation in total hip arthroplasty (THA) is not well studied. The aim of our study is to investigate the difference of cup orientation in bilateral THA performed by right-handed surgeons using posterolateral approach and which cup could be fitter to Lewinnecks safe zone. The study consisted of 498 patients that underwent bilateral THA by three right-handed surgeons in our hospital. Postoperative acetabular cup anteversion and abduction on an anteroposterior pelvic radiograph were measured by Orthoview software (Orthoview LLC, Jacksonville, Florida). Furthermore, the percentage of cup placement within the safe zone was compared. The mean anteversion was 25.28 (25.28° ± 7.16°) in left THA and 22.01 (22.01° ± 6.35°) in right THA (p | 0.001). The mean abduction was 37.50 (37.50° ± 6.76°) in left THA and 38.59 (38.59° ± 6.84°) in right THA (p = 0.011). In the left side, the cup was positioned in Lewinneks safe zone in 52% for anteversion, 87
We assessed the orientation of the acetabular component in 1070 primary total hip arthroplasties with hard-on-soft, small diameter bearings, aiming to determine the size and site of the target zone that optimises outcome. Outcome measures included complications, dislocations, revisions and ΔOHS (the difference between the Oxford Hip Scores pre-operatively and five years post-operatively). A wide scatter of orientation was observed (2sd 15°). Placing the component within Lewinneks zone was not associated withimproved outcome. Of the different zone sizes tested (± 5°, ± 10° and ± 15°), only ± 15° was associated with a decreased rate of dislocation. The dislocation rate with acetabular components inside an inclination/anteversion zone of 40°/15° ± 15° was four times lower than those outside. The only zone size associated with statistically significant and clinically important improvement in OHS was ± 5°. The best outcomes (ΔOHS | 26) were achieved with a 45°/25° ± 5° zone. This study
INTRODUCTION: Foot drop is a potentially debilitating complication following injury to the sciatic nerve during primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). The aim of this study was to determine the incidence, risk factors and outcome of this complication within one large surgical practice.. METHODS: We analysed the records of 10,624 primary THAs carried out between January 1993 and November 2017 using a posterior approach. All were under the care of the senior author.. RESULTS: Overall, there were 47 cases (0.44%) of foot drop, but over time the incidence dropped from 0.6% to 0.3% ( p = 0.033). Preoperative protrusio acetabulae ( p , 0.001), female sex ( p , 0.001) and junior grade of surgeon ( p , 0.009) were all significant risk factors. In this series, dysplasia was not a risk factor. 1 year postoperatively, 25 (53.2%) had complete recovery, 12 (25.5%) had ongoing sensory deficit but normal power, and 10 (21.3%) had a residual sensory-motor deficit..

Total Hip Replacement Surgery. Due to arthritis and degeneration of the hip, the entire joint is replaced with prosthetics in a procedure called total hip arthroplasty. The steps shown include the removal of the degenerated femoral head and acetabulm, or hip socket; the reaming out of the femur and socket area in preparation for the artificial femoral head and acetabular component; the placement of each prosthesis; and the appearance of the prostheses post-operatively.

We previously reported on the metal ion concentrations of cobalt, chromium, and titanium that were found in the serum of patients three years after they had undergone primary total hip arthroplasty as compared with the concentrations found in the serum of control patients who did not have an implant. This study is a concise update on the serum metal levels found in a cohort of these patients ten years after the time of hip implantation. Of the original seventy-five subjects, metal ion levels were available for forty patients (53%). Ten patients (hybrid group) had received a hybrid total hip replacement that consisted of a modular cobalt-alloy femoral stem with a cobalt-alloy femoral head that had been inserted with cement and a titanium acetabular socket that had been inserted without cement. Nine patients (cobalt-chromium [CoCr] group) had received an implant with an extensively porous-coated modular cobalt-alloy femoral stem and femoral head along with a titanium acetabular socket; the femoral ...
One type of hip fracture, called a femoral neck fracture, involves a break in the narrow part of the femur bone where the head of the femur is joined to the main shaft. The break can be either undisplaced, which involves very little separation at the fracture site, or displaced, in which there is substantial separation. For displaced fractures, surgeons usually choose between internal fixation and hip arthroplasty, which is also known as hip replacement.. Patients receiving hip arthroplasty may undergo either a total hip arthroplasty or a hemi-arthroplasty. Which surgical method is best for the patient is unknown. Advocates of total hip replacement claim better improvements in patient function and quality of life. On the other hand, advocates of hemi-arthroplasty, which include most orthopaedic surgeons, claim reduced rates of dislocation and deep vein thrombosis, shorter operating times, less blood loss, and a technically less demanding surgical procedure. This study will compare total hip ...
We conducted a retrospective review of an institutional database of primary total hip arthroplasty patients from 2006 to 2013. Thirty-three super-obese patients were identified, and the other 5 cohorts were randomly selected in a 2:1 ratio (n = 363). Demographics, 90-day outcomes (costs, reoperations, and readmissions), and outcomes after 3 years (revisions and change scores for Short-Form Health Survey, Harris Hip Score, and Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index) were collected. Costs were determined using unit costs from our institutional administrative data for all in-hospital resource utilization. Comparisons between the nonobese and other groups were made with Kruskal-Wallis tests for non-normal data and chi-square and Fisher exact test for categorical data.. ...

Hip arthroplasty is also called hip replacement surgery. The hip consists of a ball (femoral head) that fits into a socket (acetabulum). The joint capsule and surrounding ligaments and muscles provide stability to the joint. Hip arthroplasty surgery involves the removal of damaged parts of the hip joint and replacing them with parts constructed with metal, ceramic and very hard plastic.

We report a case of interposition of a broken trochanteric wire in the hip joint. This caused early wear of the prosthesis and dislocation of the Charnley total hip arthroplasty. The patient was treated with a revision total hip arthroplasty. This rare complication should be taken into consideration when performing a trochanteric osteotomy fixation with wiring in Charnley total hip arthroplasty.
The purpose of total hip replacement is to relieve pain, not to make better athletes. Still, the modern patient is likely to return to recreation and sports. There is no current consensus on the safety of resuming athletics, though a surgeons judgment and a patients common sense will serve as appropriate guidelines. The issue of athletic participation after hip arthroplasty has become more relevant in recent years, with an increase in the number of young and active patients receiving joint replacements. The article reviews patient surgery, implant and sports related factors and discusses currently available guidelines that should be considered by the physician when counseling patients regarding a return to athletic activity after total joint arthroplasty. Current evidence regarding appropriate athletic participation after total hip arthroplasty is also reviewed. Patients should be encouraged to be active after total joint arthroplasty, and this may include participation in athletic activity. ...

Background:Release and dispersion of particles arising from corrosion and wear of total hip arthroplasty (THA) components has raised concerns about a possible increased risk of cancer. Concerns have been heightened by a recent revival in the use of metal-on-metal (MoM) hip prostheses.Methods:From a linked database of hospital discharge, cancer registration, and mortality records, we selected a cohort of patients who underwent primary THA (1990-2009) or primary resurfacing arthroplasty (mainly 2000-2009) in Scotland, with follow-up to the end of 2010. Available operation codes did not enable us to distinguish MoM THAs. Indirectly standardised incidence ratios (SIRs) were calculated for selected cancers with standardisation for age, sex, deprivation, and calendar period.Results:The study cohort included 71 990 patients yielding 547 001 person-years at risk (PYAR) and 13 946 cancers diagnosed during follow-up. For the total period of observation combined, the risks of all cancers (SIR: 1.05; 95% ...

Questions/Purposes: We aimed to study 20-to-40-year functional outcomes after primary THA. We investigated the extent to which (1) functional outcomes after THA are maintained long term; (2) patient characteristics such as age, hip disease diagnosis, and comorbidities affect recovery of function and survivorship after THA; and (3) patients overall function after THA is affected by the need for revision, the aging process, and associated comorbidities. Methods: We retrospectively reviewed outcomes of the senior authors patients ...
BACKGROUND: Although the prevalence of displaced femoral neck fractures in the elderly population is increasing worldwide, there remains controversy as to whether these injuries should be managed with hemiarthroplasty or total hip arthroplasty. Although total hip arthroplasties result in better function, they are more expensive and may have higher complication rates. Our objective was to compare the complication rates and health-care costs between hemiarthroplasty and total hip arthroplasty for displaced femoral neck fractures in the elderly population.. METHODS: A population-based, retrospective cohort study was performed on adults (≥60 years of age) undergoing either hemiarthroplasty or total hip arthroplasty for hip fracture between April 1, 2004, and March 31, 2014. We excluded patients who resided in long-term care facilities prior to the injury and those who were discharged to these facilities after the surgical procedure. Patients who underwent a hemiarthroplasty and those who underwent ...

N2 - Background: The morbidity and mortality associated with pulmonary embolism are well known, as is the benefit of the use of heparin in patients who have a pulmonary embolism. However, the patterns of heparin use as well as its undesirable effects, especially in patients who have recently had a total hip arthroplasty, have been less well studied. Thus, concern arises regarding the use of heparin in patients who have no firm evidence of a pulmonary embolism. The purpose of the current study was to track the use of heparin and associated orthopaedic complications in patients in whom a pulmonary embolism was suspected after a total hip arthroplasty. Methods: The records of 150 patients in whom a pulmonary embolism had been suspected after a total hip arthroplasty were reviewed retrospectively. The rates of ...
A method and apparatus for performing a minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty. An approximately 3.75-5 centimeter (1.5-2 inch) anterior incision is made in line with the femoral neck. The femoral neck is severed from the femoral shaft and removed through the anterior incision. The acetabulum is prepared for receiving an acetabular cup through the anterior incision, and the acetabular cup is placed into the acetabulum through the anterior incision. A posterior incision of approximately 2.5-3.75 centimeters (1-1.5 inches) is generally aligned with the axis of the femoral shaft and provides access to the femoral shaft. Preparation of the femoral shaft including the reaming and rasping thereof is performed through the posterior incision, and the femoral stem is inserted through the posterior incision for implantation in the femur. A variety of novel instruments including an osteotomy guide; an awl for locating a posterior incision aligned with the axis of the femoral shaft; a tubular posterior retractor
BACKGROUND: Trochanteric osteotomies (TO) facilitate exposure and true hip reconstruction in complex primary and revision total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, non-union represents a clinically relevant complication. The purpose of the present study was to identify risk factors for trochanteric non-union. METHODS: All cases of THA approached by TO during the past 10 years were analyzed with respect to potential risk factors for non-union. RESULTS: In 298 cases complete data were available for analysis. Trochanteric union occurred in 80.5%, fibrous union in 5.4% and non-union 14.1%. Risk factor analysis revealed a four times higher risk for non-union in anterior trochanteric slide osteotomies compared to extended trochanteric osteotomies and a three times higher risk in cemented versus non-cemented stems. Multiple logistic regression analysis revealed patients age and use of cement to be independent risk factors for non-union. CONCLUSIONS: Femoral cementation and increasing age negatively ...

The latest statistics gathered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that some 327,000 hip replacements are performed annually in the U.S. That number is predicted to increase to nearly 600,000 in the U.S. alone by the year 2030. Also, according to a 2006 report by Datamonitor, an international marketing firm, the U.S. accounts for approximately 50% of total hip replacement surgeries performed worldwide.. As head of the Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, I specialize in complex hip and knee issues. Here are the top five need-to-knows about hip replacement surgery:. 1. Choose the right surgeon. Studies show that patients who are operated on by surgeons who specialize in performing hip replacements have fewer complications. Over the past 10 years, I have performed more than 5,000 joint replacement surgeries. According to Premier, the largest benchmarking comparative data service in the country, my complication and readmission rates are three times less than peer orthopedic ...

Background: Porous-coated cups have been widely used in acetabular reconstruction after failed treatment of acetabular fractures, and good results have been reported with the use of these cups; however, the durability and functionality of modular trabecular metal (TM) acetabular components in acetabular reconstruction after failed treatment of acetabular fractures remain unclear. This study aimed to examine the radiographic and clinical outcomes associated with the use of modular TM acetabular components for failed treatment of acetabular fractures to assess the durability and functionality of these components in acetabular reconstruction after failed treatment of acetabular fractures. ...
Many factors enter into the decision to have a total hip replacement performed on your pet. You may have questions about the procedure. The answers to the most commonly asked questions about total hip replacement follow. We hope you find this information helpful and would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.. Q: What is a total hip replacement (THR)?. Both the ball (head of the femur) and socket (acetabulum) of the hip joint are replaced with prosthetic implants. The new ball is made from a cobalt-chromium metal alloy and the new socket from high molecular weight polyethylene plastic. Special bone cement is used to hold these implants in place.. Q: Do you use a cementless or a cemented total hip replacement?. We have been doing cemented total hip replacements at The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine since August of 1976. We have gained considerable experience with this procedure and have a high success rate. The prosthesis we use has many of the design ...
Every year, about 1 million patients worldwide and 16000 patients in Sweden undergo total hip arthroplasty (THA). This surgical intervention is considered a successful, safe and cost-effective procedure to regain pain-free mobility and restore hip joint function in patients suffering from severe hip joint disease or trauma. Besides relieving the pain, restoration of biomechanical forces around the hip with appropriate femoral offset (FO), leg length and proper component position and orientation are important goals. The radiographic preoperative planning and postoperative evaluation of these parameters require good validity, interobserver reliability and intraobserver reproducibility. It remains controversial as to how much postoperative leg length discrepancy (LLD) and FO change are acceptable. Generally, lengthening of the operated leg ≥ 10mm and FO reduction of the operated hip , 5mm should be avoided by using preoperative radiological templating and intraoperative measurement methods. There ...
IMPORTANCE: The role of sex in relationship to implant failure after total hip arthroplasty (THA) is important for patient management and device innovation.. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the association of sex with short-term risk of THA revision after adjusting for patient, implant, surgery, surgeon, and hospital confounders.. DESIGN AND SETTING: A prospective cohort of patients enrolled in a total joint replacement registry from April 1, 2001, through December 31, 2010.. PARTICIPANTS: Patients undergoing primary, elective, unilateral THA.. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Failure of THA, defined as revision procedure for (1) any reason, (2) septic reason, or (3) aseptic reason after the index procedure.. RESULTS: A total of 35,140 THAs with 3.0 years of median follow-up were identified. Women constituted 57.5% of the study sample, and the mean (SD) patient age was 65.7 (11.6) years. A higher proportion of women received 28-mm femoral heads (28.2% vs 13.1%) and had metal on highly cross-linked ...
Pain is the most frequently used nursing diagnosis and consistently ranks high on the list of nursings patient care problems. A recommended intervention for improving pain outcomes is education for patients and families about pain and its management.The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of patient education on pain for total joint arthroplasty patients. This study is designed to determine the benefit of a pain management program on patients perceptions of the pain management program in an acute care facility.The Gate Control Theory will be used as the theoretical framework for this quasi-experimental study because it synthesizes the traditional pain theories and psychological aspects of pain. The sample will include 50 initial total hip and total knee arthroplasty patients from an accessiblepopulation of 115 in a 300-bed midwestern acute care facility over a six month period. The convenience sample will be alternately assigned to either the control or treatment group by ...
Background: Avascular necrosis (also osteonecrosis, bone infarction, aseptic necrosis, ischemic bone necrosis, and AVN) is a disease where there is cellular death (necrosis) of bone components due to interruption of the blood supply. The current well accepted treatment for arthritis secondary to AVN in hip joint is total hip replacement.Methodology: A prospective study was carried out on 30 patients who underwent cemented/uncemented Total Hip Replacement in Department of Orthopaedics, Vydehi Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre, Whitefield, Bangalore.Results: This study has shown that, the mean age of patients in the study group was 42.30±11.43 years. About 43.3% of the avascular necrosis patients in the study group belonged to 31-40 years age group. The sex distribution of the study group has shown that, about 76.7% of the patients were Males and 23.3% were females. The analysis of patients for the etiology of AVN showed that 70.0% of the patient developed AVN of hip joint without ...
Periarticular heterotopic ossification (PHO) is a common roentgenographic finding, occurring in more than two-thirds of patients after total hip arthroplasty (THA) for coxarthrosis. In the present study, 56 patients treated with bilateral THA were analyzed to determine the correlation between heterotopic ossification on the two sides. A strong correlation was found between the grade of PHO on the two sides: patients who developed severe PHO after the first THA invariably developed considerable PHO after surgery on the other side. The incidence and grade of PHO were higher in men than in women.. ...
Implementation of robotics in total joint arthroplasty Alexander H Jinnah,1 Ashley Multani,2 Johannes F Plate,1 Gary G Poehling,1 Riyaz H Jinnah1,3 1Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Wake Forest School of Medicine, Winston-Salem, NC, USA; 2Windsor University School of Medicine, St Kitts, West Indies; 3Southeastern Orthopedics, Southeastern Regional Medical Center, Lumberton, NC, USA Abstract: Robotic-assisted systems for unicompartmental and total knee arthroplasty and total hip arthroplasty have been introduced in recent years. Various systems are currently in use ranging from passive to robotic-assisted and active systems to improve component alignment with the goal to improve longevity of knee and hip prostheses. The purpose of this article is to review contemporary robotic systems for knee and hip arthroplasty and provide an overview of current implant survivorships based on registry data. We conducted a PubMed search for robotic systems used in orthopedics with a particular focus on total joint
Although total hip arthroplasties (THAs) have been extremely successful, survivorship of THAs in young patients with osteonecrosis of femoral head has been limited by aseptic loosening and osteolysis secondary to wear and particulate polyethylene debris [ 1 - 4 ]. Highly cross-linked polyethylene (HXLPE) has been introduced to decrease osteolysis secondary to polyethylene wear debris generation, thereby increasing long-term survivorship of the THAs [ 5 - 7 ]. There are a variety of types of HXLPE sold worldwide today. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2014 ...
Abductor weakness, and the resulting Trendelenburg gait, after total hip arthroplasty is believed to be associated with a poor long-term outcome. We have constructed a two-dimensional finite element analysis using load cases to mimic this abductor weakness. The finite element analysis demonstrates slightly increased stresses, particularly at the bone-cement interface in the DeLee-Charnley zone I, which does not seem sufficient to explain the adverse effect of abductor weakness. Laffaiblissement des muscles abducteurs et la démarche qui en résulte après le remplacement de la hanche par prothèse, peut être associé avec un résultat médiocre à long terme. Nous avons réalisé une étude par éléments finis à deux dimensions avec des situations imitant cette faiblesse des muscles abducteurs. Cette analyse montre une augmentation légère des contraintes particulièrement à linterface os-ciment dans la zone I de DeLee et Charnley. Ceci ne semble pas suffisant pour expliquer les effets
BACKGROUND In recent years, the number of lung transplants has increased rapidly, with higher quality of life and improved survival rates in transplant recipients, including patients with advanced age. This, in turn, means that more transplant recipients will seek musculoskeletal care to treat degenerative joint disease and also trauma incidents. Safety concerns regarding elective and posttraumatic hip arthroplasty in transplant patients include an increased risk of infection, wound healing problems, periprosthetic fractures and loosening of the implants. METHODS Clinical outcomes and safety aspects were retrospectively reviewed for five primary total hip arthroplasties (THA) in lung transplant recipients with minimal follow-up of two years at average of 2.6 (2-11) years. Patients were recruited from the Zurich Lung Transplant Center comprising of a cohort of 253 patients between January 1st, 2004 and December 31st, 2013. RESULTS All five patients subjectively reported excellent outcomes after THA
This study evaluated survivorship and clinical outcomes of patients undergoing conversion of a hip arthrodesis to a total hip arthroplasty (THA) and compared them to 2 patient cohorts: primary THA and first-time revision THA. Patients completed 5 sta
Three relevant systematic reviews and one relevant economic evaluation were identified.. Generally, rates of complication, readmission, and reoperation were not statistically different or appeared numerically comparable between the outpatient and inpatient total hip arthroplasty (THA) groups. Mortality rates were low and appeared to be numerically comparable between the outpatient and inpatient THA groups.. Generally, rates of complication, readmission, and reoperation were not statistically different or appeared numerically comparable between the outpatient and inpatient total knee arthroplasty (TKA) groups. There were inconsistencies with respect to mortality rates in the outpatient and inpatient TKA groups; this finding was based on two studies included in one systematic review.. Inpatient THA was considered not to be cost-effective compared to outpatient THA at a willingness to pay threshold of US$50,000 as the incremental cost effectiveness ratio (ICER) for inpatient THA was US$81,116 per ...
When implanting the cup (or acetabular component), most surgeons attempt to implant it into a specific position. This positioning is based on each surgeons specific surgical approach, technique, prosthesis used and experience. Dr. George Lewinnek, an orthopedic surgeon in Worcester, Mass., published a study and popularized the concept of a safe zone for cup positioning. Based on his own specific surgical goal, he found that if the cups were placed within a range of 10 degrees plus or minus his goal, then the rate of dislocation was significantly less (1.5% dislocation) compared to those cups that were outside of the desired range (6.2% dislocation).. Another important study, which recently was published and won the coveted Charnley Award for 2010, describes risk factors associated with cup mal-positioning (poor cup position). It reports on the experience of seven surgeons at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Cup position was analyzed on the postoperative X-rays of 2,061 patients who ...

In recent years many patients have been treated with minimally invasive total hip replacements. The primary difference between minimally invasive and conventional approaches is how the surgeon exposes and gains access to the hip joint. With the traditional approach, the incision is 10-16 inches long, whereas minimally invasive incisions are one incision about 6 inches long or two small incisions about 3-4 inches long; one incision is over the groin for placement of the acetabular component (socket) and one is over the buttock for placement of the femoral component (ball). To make the two incisions your surgeon made need the help of an xray. Also, the minimally invasive approach involves splitting and dividing muscles instead of cutting them. Minimally invasive joint replacement is therefore less traumatic, promotes better healing and the joint regains stability more quickly. There is less blood loss and the patient can sometimes go home the same day. Minimally invasive surgery can take longer ...
Limb-length discrepancy following total hip arthroplasty (THA) is often cited as a reason for patient dissatisfaction and for hip instability. Various intraoperative techniques have been described to help restore normal limb length after THA. The purpose of this study was to assess whether a computer-navigated surgical technique would help restore limb-length equality following THA. A retrospective study of 150 consecutive patients compared a free-hand (non-navigated) THA technique vs a computer-navigated THA technique. Each group contained 75 patients. The primary outcome measurement was limb-length discrepancy, which was evaluated using a digital anteroposterior pelvic radiograph. Secondary outcome measurements included a Harris Hip Score questionnaire and a single question evaluating the subjective feeling of the operative limb (longer, shorter, or equal). At a minimum 1-year follow-up, results showed that computer-navigated THA helped restore limb-length equality. An average leg-length ...

Venous thrombosis rates were compared in 200 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty and randomized to receive either fixed mini-dose warfarin (1 mg daily) or adjusted-dose warfarin to maintain an international normalized prothrombin ratio (INR) of 2.0-4.0. Bilateral lower limb venography was performed between days 11 and 13 inclusive. Fixed mini-dose warfarin was associated with a significantly higher rate of total thrombosis (P less than 0.05). General anaesthesia was associated with a significantly higher rate of thrombosis than spinal anaesthesia (P less than 0.05). Adjusted-dose warfarin was associated with more bleeding complications than mini-dose warfarin although these were not attributable to excessive anticoagulation. A single death from pulmonary embolus occurred in the early postoperative period in a patient receiving adjusted-dose warfarin ...

Displaced femoral neck fractures comprise more than a third of all hip fractures. There is controversy as to the optimal treatment. Despite attempts to improve the methods for internal fixation, complication rates have been almost unchanged: 20-40% non-union and late segmental collapse in another 10-20%. Internal fixation has been the preferred treatment in Scandinavia, whereas primary hemi- or total arthroplasty have been more prevalent in the rest of Europe and North America.. In this study, patients 75 years or older, including those with mental impairment, were randomized to either internal fixation or cemented primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). A total of 146 hips in 143 patients were followed for two years. After one year 23% had died, and after two years 29%. Mortality was about the same in both groups. The accumulated mortality was pronounced among the mentally impaired patients.. In the internal fixation group, 44% underwent further surgery. In the THA group, 18% dislocated. The ...

An observational, prospective outcomes design was used for this study. All patients on the waiting lists of five orthopedic surgeons in Kingston, Ontario between October, 1998 and March of 2001 were invited to participate. All primary hip and knee replacement patients (excluding revisions and fractures) were eligible to participate. Contact information for each eligible patient was obtained from the surgeons, and a survey package was mailed to each, containing a patient information and consent form, the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC) questionnaire C used to assess quality of life when a patient has osteoarthritis of the hip and/or knee C and the Medical Outcomes Trust 36-item short form (SF-36). The SF-36 assesses eight health concepts: 1) limitations in physical activities because of health problems; 2) limitations in social activities because of physical or emotional problems; 3) limitations in usual role activities because of physical health problems; 4) ...
The popularity of Metal-on-Metal (MoM) hip implants, which are typically made out of cobalt and chromium, has made cobalt poisoning of the eye more common. August 1, 2017, 1:30PM. We present a 71-year-old male with grinding sensations in his right hip following ceramic-on-ceramic total hip arthroplasty (THA). In 1966, a curious case of cobalt poisoning occurred in Canada. On 29 June 2017, the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agencys (MHRA) published updated advice regarding metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacement implants. Hip replacement lawsuits claim patients were left with serious side effects due to device design or defects. So, when he himself needed a new hip back in 2006, he knew exactly what he wanted - a metal-on-metal hip replacement made by device manufacturer DePuy. 2006 Oct;77(5):830-2. doi: 10.1080/17453670610013079.

Alumina (Aluminum oxide, Al2O3) has been in clinical use as an articulating material in Total Hip Replacement for more than 40 years. Ceramic bearings were introduced to reduce wear and increase long-term survivorship of total hip arthroplasty and alumina ceramic-on-ceramic bearings have gained popularity in hip arthroplasty because of their properties of low wear and chemical inertness. Advances in technology have reduced the risk of fracture of ceramic total hip arthroplasty implants; the recent introduction of the alumina matrix composite material offers an even wider range of applications because of its significantly enhanced mechanical properties when compare to alumina. In addition, rigid quality assurance and good manufacturing practices have also contributed greatly to the current reliability of modern ceramic bearings. Although concerns still remain about fracture and noise, ceramic components continue to provide an option for the young and more active patient and for a measure to ...
Dr Erik Zeegen performs minimally invasive total hip replacement in Los Angeles, Thousand Oaks, Santa Monica, Sherman Oaks, Encino and Pacific Palisades, CA. He also treats hip arthritis.
Total Hip Replacement A Total Hip Replacement is a surgical procedure wherein the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically removed and replaced with the synthetic material. A normal hip joint structure is like a ball and socket joint. The socket is a cup shaped bone called acetabulum and the ball is femur (head of the thigh bone). The artificial joints are attached to the bone with arcylic cement. If only one part is fixed with cement, it is known as Hybrid Total Hip Replacement.. Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement This particular type of surgery allows the surgeon to perform hip replacement through 1 or 2 smaller incisions. Candidates who undergo minimally invasive surgery are usually thinner, healthier, younger and more likely to have a quick recovery as compared to those who undergo the traditional method.. Birmingham Hip Replacement The Birmingham Hip Replacement surgery takes place in people who are in need of hip replacement at a very young age. During this surgery, a ...
