BACKGROUND: Cost-containment strategies may discourage hospitals from performing surgery for patients with preexisting risk factors such as those with high body mass index (BMI), those with high hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), or those who smoke cigarettes. Because these risk factors may not appear in equal proportions across the population, using these risk factors as inflexible eligibility criteria for lower extremity joint arthroplasty may exacerbate existing racial-ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic disparities pertaining to access to an operation that can improve health and quality of life...

BACKGROUND: Despite wide adoption of hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated femoral stems in THA, no studies have found differences in the risk of revision surgery with its use or investigated the interaction of different prosthesis designs with stem coating. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the risk of revision in THAs with HA-coated stems compared with non-HA-coated. To achieve this purpose, we asked: (1) What is the difference in risk of revision of THAs with HA-coated femoral stems compared with non-HA-coated using an aggregate analysis? (2) What is the difference in risk of revision of THAs with HA-coated femoral stems compared with non-HA-coated for five prosthesis types that used the same femoral and acetabular component combination but where the femoral stem had both a HA and non-HA coating option? METHODS: The Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry analyzed cementless primary THA registered between September 1, 1999, and December 31, 2014...

BACKGROUND: Although cephalomedullary nail fixation is often used for metastatic peritrochanteric lesions of the femur, there is concern regarding the durability of the implant in comparison to endoprosthetic reconstruction. Previous studies have reported the proportion of patients who undergo reoperation for loss of stability, but the adequacy of the construct has not been critically evaluated in a competing risk analysis that incorporates death of the patient in the calculation. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What is the cumulative incidence of reoperation of cephalomedullary nails with death as a competing risk for metastatic lesions of the proximal femur? (2) What is the survival of patients with metastases to the proximal femur after cephalomedullary nailing? (3) What clinical factors are associated with implant stability in these patients? METHODS: Between 1990 and 2009, 11 surgeons at one center treated 217 patients with cephalomedullary nails for metastatic proximal femoral lesions...

BACKGROUND: The treatment of mild or borderline acetabular dysplasia is controversial with surgical options including both arthroscopic labral repair with capsular closure or plication and periacetabular osteotomy (PAO). The degree to which improvements in pain and function might be achieved using these approaches may be a function of acetabular morphology and the severity of the dysplasia, but detailed radiographic assessments of acetabular morphology in patients with a lateral center-edge angle (LCEA) of 18° to 25° who have undergone PAO have not, to our knowledge, been performed...

BACKGROUND: Leverage of the femoral head against the acetabular rim may lead to posterior hip dislocation during sports activities in hips with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) deformity. Abnormal concavity of the femoral head and neck junction has been well described in association with posterior hip dislocation. However, acetabular morphology variations are not fully understood. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: The purpose of this study was to compare the acetabular morphology in terms of acetabular version and coverage of the femoral head in adolescents who sustained a posterior hip dislocation during sports and recreational activities with a control group of patients without a history of hip disease matched by age and sex...

BACKGROUND: During the past decade, the 32-mm head has replaced the 28-mm head as the most common head size used in primary THA in many national registries, and the use of 36-mm heads has also increased. However, it is unclear whether 32-mm and 36-mm heads decrease the revision risk in metal-on-polyethylene (MoP) THA compared with 28-mm heads. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) In the setting of the Nordic Arthroplasty Registry Association database, does the revision risk for any reason differ among 28-, 32-, and 36-mm head sizes in patients undergoing surgery with MoP THA? (2) Does the revision risk resulting from dislocation decrease with increasing head diameter (28-36 mm) in patients undergoing surgery with MoP THA in the same registry? METHODS: Data were derived from the Nordic Arthroplasty Registry Association database, a collaboration among the national arthroplasty registries of Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden...

Mary J Kwasny, Adam I Edelstein, David W Manning
BACKGROUND: Elevated body mass index (BMI) is considered a risk factor for complications after THA and TKA. Stakeholders have proposed BMI cutoffs for those seeking arthroplasty. The research that might substantiate BMI cutoffs is sensitive to the statistical methods used, but the impact of the statistical methods used to model BMI has not been defined. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) How does the estimated postarthroplasty risk of minor and major complications vary as a function of the statistical method used to model BMI? (2) What is the prognostic value of BMI for predicting complications with each statistical method? METHODS: Using the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program from 2005 to 2012, we investigated the impact of BMI on major and minor complication risk for THA and TKA...

BACKGROUND: Modulated compliant compressive forces may contribute to durable fixation of implant stems in patients with cancer who undergo endoprosthetic reconstruction after tumor resection. Chemotherapy effects on bone hypertrophy and osteointegration have rarely been studied, and no accepted radiologic method exists to evaluate compression-associated hypertrophy. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What was the effect of chemotherapy on the newly formed bone geometry (area) at 1 year and the presumed osteointegration? (2) What clinical factors were associated with the degree of hypertrophy? (3) Did the amount of bone formation correlate with implant fixation durability? (4) Was the amount of new bone generation or chemotherapy administration correlated with Musculoskeletal Tumor Society (MSTS) score? METHODS: Between 1999 and 2013, we performed 245 distal femoral reconstructions for primary or revision oncologic indications...

BACKGROUND: Prophylactic surgical treatment of the femur is commonly offered to patients with metastatic disease who have a high risk of impending pathologic fracture. Prophylactic fixation is associated with improved functional outcomes in appropriate patients selected based on established criteria, but the perioperative complication profile has received little attention. Given the substantial comorbidity in this population, it is important to characterize surgical risks for surgeons and patients to improve treatment decisions...
