  • Shorter hospital stay Lower blood loss Smaller incision Quicker return to work and functional activities The process of shortening the operative field (mini-incision) for hip resurfacing from the conventional open approach (15-30 cm), to a mini-incision approach (7-15 cm) has been well documented in the realm of hip surgery. (wikipedia.org)

  • Mr.G.S.Chana, the creator of the MIS reamer handle and the Chana Targeting Device has proved that it is possible to perform hip resurfacing through an incision of 6.5 cm's without macerating the soft tissues and incorrectly implanting the acetabular cup. (wikipedia.org)
  • Conventional hip resurfacing techniques were created as an alternative to total hip replacement, whereby only the diseased cartilage and a small surrounding area of the femur are removed, to be replaced with new surfaces. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although hip resurfacing has been around for some 40 years, the contemporary metal on metal bearing hip resurfacing has only increased in popularity amongst surgeons and patients in the past decade. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mr. McMinn developed the first successful modern metal-on-metal hip resurfacing and the instrumentation and surgical technique to implant it. (wikipedia.org)

  • BIRMINGHAM HIP RESURFACING (BHR) Mr. McMinn first began performing hip resurfacing procedures in 1991 using the McMinn Resurfacing. (wikipedia.org)
  • McMinn's technique of resurfacing employs thin (3-4 mm) metal surfaces to line the patients' own hip. (wikipedia.org)
  • Over the following years, McMinn further improved the design and operative technique, eventually developing the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing (BHR). (wikipedia.org)
  • In a condition called osteonecrosis, in which the ball part of the hip joint suffers a loss of blood supply and becomes non-viable, the results of hip resurfacing are not good (less than 90% success 10 years after their operation). (wikipedia.org)
  • It remains to be seen how DePuy's recent recall, which affects the ASR XL Acetabular System and the ASR Hip Resurfacing System, will affect the company financially. (wikipedia.org)
  • The recall was issued after research released by the National Joint Registry (NJR) found high rates of hip replacement failure for the ASR XL Acetabular and ASR Hip Resurfacing systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • 1991
  • For primary total hip arthroplasty comparing 1991-1992 and 2007-2008, average age increased from 74.1 years to 75.1 years, and obesity prevalence increased from 2.2 percent to 7.6 percent, respectively. (medicalxpress.com)
  • The researchers also found that the proportion of primary total hip arthroplasty patients discharged to home decreased from 68 percent in 1991-1992 to 48.2 percent in 2007-2008, while the proportion of patients discharged to skilled or intermediate care increased from 17.8 percent to 34.3 percent.

  • The Swedish Hip Register shows that in young patients, 19% of THRs failed 10 years after the operation and 67% had failed by 16 years. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] Since 2008, the FDA has received approximately 400 complaints from patients who received ASR hip replacements. (wikipedia.org)
  • Shine Lawyers commenced an Australian class action in the Federal Court of Australia on September 27, 2011, against DePuy International Pty Ltd and Johnson and Johnson Medical Pty Ltd. Both lawsuits claim that the DePuy ASR hip replacement was defectively designed, that DePuy knew that there were problems with the implant early on but didn't do anything to let patients or their surgeons know about the possible problems. (wikipedia.org)
  • Also, choosing the best-suited patients was emphasized to ensure that surgeons followed the indications and contraindications for partial replacement. (wikipedia.org)
  • The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) should be intact, although this is debated by clinicians for patients that need a medial compartment replacement. (wikipedia.org)
  • For patients that need a lateral compartment replacement, the ACL should be intact and is contraindicated for patients that have ACL-deficient knees because the lateral component has more motion than the medial compartment. (wikipedia.org)
  • The uni-compartmental replacement is a minimally invasive option for patients whose arthritis is isolated to either the medial or the lateral compartment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another study noted the high rate of failure in patients who received ASR XL hip arthroplasty. (wikipedia.org)
  • acetabulum
  • The hip joint is one of the body's largest weight-bearing joints, located between the thigh bone (femur) and the pelvis (acetabulum). (drelzaim.com)
  • X-ray shows severe arthritis with a shallow acetabulum (hip socket) and a nearly dislocated hip joint. (maineortho.com)
  • Post-operative x-rays show hip replacement with a ceramic-bearing surface and press-fit components in the acetabulum (socket) and femur. (maineortho.com)
  • This would involve replacing both the acetabulum (hip socket) and the head and neck of the femur. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recalls
  • The United States Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation filed a ruling on December 7, 2010 that determined the fate of the thousands of lawsuits regarding DePuy Hip Recalls in the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • outcomes
  • There is a general assumption that increasing experience with total hip arthroplasty has resulted in improvements in patient outcomes, as has been observed in other procedures, but rigorous empirical data documenting such improvement are limited. (medicalxpress.com)
  • recall
  • DePuy is currently the subject of more than 11,000 lawsuits related to its recall of faulty hip replacement systems, which lawyers and industry analysts estimate will cost parent company Johnson & Johnson billions of dollars to resolve. (wikipedia.org)
