Large-diameter head (LDH) metal-on-metal (MoM) total hip arthroplasty (THA) has lost popularity because of metal allergy or ALTRs (adverse local tissue reactions) in the past decade. Whether the surgical approach may influence the survival of LDH-MoM-THA has not been reported. From 2006 to 2009, we performed 96 LDH-MoM-THAs on 80 patients using an in situ head-neck assembly technique through a modified Watson-Jones approach. With a mean follow-up of 8.4 years (range, 6.3-10.1 years), the implant survival rate was 100%...

There is a great deal of data available, in part contradictory, on the best fixation technique to use for total hip arthroplasty (THA) in hip osteoarthritis. Both the cementless and the cemented versions offer excellent long-term outcomes - if the respective technique is applied correctly. However, as far as we know, no recommendation has been made regarding cemented vs. cementless THA in primary myelofibrosis. The case described here concerns a very active 76-year-old patient with primary myelofibrosis. This is a rare hematological disease...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY By 7th December 2016, 4,755 Bicon-Plus cups in total were implanted in the Czech Republic. Some of them have been continuously re-operated, while the most frequent reason of failure is polyethylene wear and aseptic loosening. The present study is focused on surface analysis of retrieved polyethylene Bicon-Plus cups and the determination of the roughness of their bearing surfaces. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this study, we had 13 high molecular weight polyethylene cups with the average time in situ of 8...

We report a 72-year-old man who underwent fixation with a multifilament cerclage system after a peri-prosthetic trochanteric fracture (Vancouver A1). Failure of cerclage occurred after 23 month and revision of trochanteric attachment was performed due to non-union. Intraoperatively fragments of the cable were found between prosthesis head and liner. Cup and head were changed and the greater trochanter was re-attached after allograft-impaction. Based on the present case report multifilament cerclage cables should be used with precaution and might require a close and frequent follow-up given the possibility of cerclage breakage and consecutive catastrophic wear by migration of cerclage particles...

BACKGROUND: The most common reason for revision total hip arthroplasty remains polyethylene wear. Development dysplasia of the hip and revision situations requires a conscious compromise of implant position. The surgeon should know about the consequence on wear via a possible change in hip contact force. The objective of this study is to investigate whether annual wear is dependent on hip contact force. METHODS: Forty-five inserts (DuraLoc, DePuy) that were explanted in our department were included...

BACKGROUND: Residents life is more than hectic, it is hard to find place and time for training basic and advanced microsurgical skills. Surgical instruments, sutures can be purchased (or loaned from department) but the most expensive and space occupying device is microscope. In developing countries microscopes are used where the need is most; in operation rooms. Furthermore conventional microscope is not portable. For all mentioned reasons availability of microscope for training microsurgery is very limited...

OBJECTIVE: It is unclear whether hydroxyapatite (HA) coating of uncemented cups used in primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) improves bone ingrowth and reduces the risk of aseptic loosening. We therefore investigated survival of different uncemented cups that were available with or without HA coating. METHOD: We investigated three different cup types used with or without HA coating registered in the Nordic Arthroplasty Register Association (NARA) database that were inserted due to osteoarthritis (n=28,605)...

Focal micropapillary features in invasive urothelial carcinoma is sometimes difficult to distinguish from retraction artifact morphologically. Cell polarity reversal has been demonstrated in micropapillary tumors by epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) immunostaining. We have previously described the use of E-cadherin as a cell polarity marker in ovarian micropapillary serous borderline tumors. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of immunohistochemistry for EMA and E-cadherin in differentiating micropapillary urothelial carcinoma from retraction artifact...

Transcription factors BABY BOOM (BBM), WUSCHEL (WUS), BSD, LEAFY COTYLEDON (LEC), LEAFY COTYLEDON LIKE (LIL), VIVIPAROUS1 (VP1), CUP SHAPED COTYLEDONS (CUC), BOLITA (BOL), and AGAMOUS LIKE (AGL) play a crucial role in somatic embryogenesis. In this study, we identified eighteen genes of these nine transcription factors families from the banana genome database. All genes were analyzed for their structural features, subcellular, and chromosomal localization. Protein sequence analysis indicated the presence of characteristic conserved domains in these transcription factors...

Autophagy is an evolutionarily conserved process that occurs ubiquitously and functions as a primary route for the degradation of damaged organelles and proteins in response to starvation, oxidative stress, and other harmful conditions. The initial event upon autophagy induction is the formation of a membranous cistern called the phagophore or isolation membrane, a cup-shaped structure that elongates, engulfs cytoplasmic "cargo", and fuses at its rims to give rise to the autophagosome within which cytoplasmic material is enclosed...

Cut-marked and broken human bones are a recurrent feature of Magdalenian (~17-12,000 years BP, uncalibrated dates) European sites. Human remains at Gough's Cave (UK) have been modified as part of a Magdalenian mortuary ritual that combined the intensive processing of entire corpses to extract edible tissues and the modification of skulls to produce skull-cups. A human radius from Gough's Cave shows evidence of cut marks, percussion damage and human tooth marks, indicative of cannibalism, as well as a set of unusual zig-zagging incisions on the lateral side of the diaphysis...

BACKGROUND: Vascular injury during minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty (THA) is uncommon, yet a well-recognized and serious issue. It emerges because of non-visibility of vascular structures proximal to the pelvic bone during reaming, drilling holes, and fixing of screws. Numerous studies have found that screw fixation during cementless THA is beneficial for the initial stability of cup; yet, no anatomical guidelines support angular eccentric screw fixation. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this study, we obtained the pelvic arterial-phase computed tomographic data of thirty eight humans and reconstructed the three-dimensional models of osseous and vessel structures...
