• incidence
  • The Western world is experiencing a rapid increase in the incidence of femoral neck fractures, from 50000 fractures in 1990 to a projected 120000 in 2015 1 as the age of the population increases. (bjmp.org)
  • To evaluate definitions of radiographic hip osteoarthritis (RHOA) for use in longitudinal epidemiologic studies of disease incidence in women.We studied 5,839 women from the Study of Osteoporotic Fractures who had had serial pelvic radiographs obtained (mean of 8.3 years apart) and who were followed up (mean followup 7.1 years from the time of the second radiograph) for evaluation of clinical outcomes.

  • pain
  • But more often, the surgeon must weigh the odds of the hip collapsing after repair, thus causing further pain, weakness, deformity, and difficulty standing and walking. (eorthopod.com)
  • Composite definitions had the strongest associations with THR (OR 10.5-18.5) and hip pain (OR 2.6-2.9). (ox.ac.uk)
  • joint
  • The hips identified as having OA by each definition varied, with especially small overlap between findings using definitions based on osteophytes and those using definitions based on joint space narrowing alone.Most definitions of incident RHOA display good construct and predictive validity.

  • study
  • This study compared pediatric patients with fully displaced femoral neck fractures treated with either open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF) or closed reduction and internal fixation (CRIF). (healio.com)
  • Excluded from the study were 16 patients who had fractures that were not fully displaced, 4 who were outside of the eligible age range, 1 who had insufficient radiographs, and 10 who had insufficient follow-up. (healio.com)
  • patients
  • All patients were sent an Oxford Hip Score questionnaire between two and four months postoperatively with 100% response rate. (bjmp.org)
  • develop
  • Purported advantages of the ETS include the use of a tried and tested polished, tapered stainless steel stem with which many primary hip surgeons are familiar, ease of 'cement-in-cement' revision to a total hip replacement should the patient develop acetabular erosion and the relatively low cost of £240 compared to many contemporary cemented implants. (bjmp.org)
  • Total
  • Options include reduction with internal fixation, cemented or cementless hemi-arthroplasty and total hip replacement. (bjmp.org)
