Distally anchored uncemented modular tapered porous stems are often the preferred treatment in total hip arthroplasty revisions and failed subtrochanteric fractures. These conditions mainly affect elderly osteoporotic patients, with an increased risk of later fractures below the well-fixated implant. Treatment in secondary fractures with long looking plates is the recommended treatment, where stability is a key to fracture healing. We report a complicated case in which this was achieved by an innovative technique combing the trochanteric attachment bolt of the stem system and a locking plate with polyaxial screws...

BACKGROUND: In total hip arthroplasty (THA), the acetabular cup and femoral stem must be correctly sized and positioned to avoid intraoperative and postoperative complications, achieve good functional outcomes and ensure long-term survival. Current two-dimensional (2D) techniques do not provide sufficient accuracy, while low-dose biplanar X-rays (EOS) had not been assessed in this indication. Therefore we performed a case-control study to: 1) evaluate the prediction of stem and cup size for a new 3D planning technique (stereoradiographic imaging plus 3D modeling) in comparison to 2D templating on film radiographs and 2) evaluate the accuracy and reproducibility of this 3D technique for preoperative THA planning...

As the number of primary total hip arthroplasties increases, so does the burden of revision procedures. The decision to revise well-fixed components in the setting of polyethylene wear and osteolysis is controversial. Modular head and liner exchange offers the advantages of reduced invasiveness, faster recovery, and bone preservation. These advantages come at the expense of higher rates of revision surgery for instability. Using the native locking mechanism for securing the new liner is preferred; however, cementing a liner into a well-fixed acetabular component is a practical alternative...

With the aging population and rising incidence of primary total joint arthroplasty has come the increasing incidence of revision total hip arthroplasties. One challenge in revision total hip arthroplasty is dealing with acetabular defects. The orthopaedic surgeon who chooses to take on these challenges requires a proper method for the evaluation of these defects as well as an evidence-based treatment algorithm. Initial assessment requires appropriate use and interpretation of imaging modalities such as x-rays and computed tomography...

BACKGROUND: The recent experiences with adverse local tissue reactions have highlighted the need to establish what are normal serum levels of cobalt (Co), chromium (Cr), and titanium (Ti) after hip arthroplasty. METHODS: Serum Co, Cr, and Ti levels were measured in 80 nonconsecutive patients with well-functioning unilateral total hip arthroplasty and compared among 4 bearing surfaces: ceramic-on-ceramic (CoC); ceramic-on-polyethylene (CoP); metal-on-polyethylene (MoP), and dual mobility (DM)...

BACKGROUND: The modular head taper junction has contributed to the success of total hip arthroplasty (THA) greatly. Taper corrosion and wear problems reported for large and extra-large metal-on-metal bearings as well as for bi-modular THA stems have cast doubt on the benefit of the taper interface. Presently, corrosion problems are being reported for nearly all kinds of artificial hip joints incorporating metal heads, questioning taper connections in general. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: This study aimed to review the mechanical and electrochemical relationships that may lead to taper corrosion, which have been reported more commonly in recent literature, and to also review the contribution of patient characteristics and surgical techniques involved in taper assembly that may contribute to the problem...

BACKGROUND: Modularity in total hip arthroplasty has been used for decades with great success, but new findings regarding corrosion artifacts have caused a resurgence in tapered junction research. Mechanically assisted crevice corrosion (MACC) is thought to be the mechanism by which corrosive attack occurs. Myriad multi-factorial variables are known to influence the susceptibility of a modular taper junction to MACC. Some of these variables are design and manufacture related and others can be controlled by the surgeon...

BACKGROUND: Benefits of femoral offset restoration during total hip arthroplasty should be the reduction of bearing surfaces wear, implant loosening and dislocation rates. Modular neck stems ensure offset customization, but fretting corrosion and catastrophic failures are well documented complications. Since clinical evidences are needed to substantiate the effectiveness of femoral offset restoration and promote modular neck choice, we systematically reviewed the literature to ascertain whether femoral offsetitself has a proven clinical influence: 1) on bearing surfaces wear, 2) implant loosening, 3) and dislocation rates...

BACKGROUND: There is risk of junction failure when using modular femoral stems for revision total hip arthroplasty (THA), especially with loss of bone stock in the proximal femur. Using a cortical strut allograft may provide additional support of a modular femoral construct in revision THA. METHODS: We reviewed prospectively gathered clinical and radiographic data for 28 revision THAs performed from 2004 to 2014 using cementless modular femoral components with cortical strut allograft applied to supplement proximal femoral bone loss: 5 (18%) were fluted taper designs and 23 (82%) were porous cylindrical designs All the patients had a Paprosky grade IIIA or greater femoral defect...

BACKGROUND: The severity and location of adverse local tissue reaction (ALTR) seen in metal-on-polyethylene total hip arthroplasty (THA) is not well described. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of patients who underwent a revision THA using our biomechanics database. We included all patients who underwent revision surgery for the diagnosis of ALTR with THA implants that had modularity solely at the head-neck junction and excluded patients with implant modularity at sites other than the head-neck junction...

BACKGROUND: Increased modularity in total hip arthroplasty (THA) through extra junction between the neck and the femoral stem is gaining popularity among orthopaedic community. However, the advantage of the additional junction is shadowed by an increased risk of mechanical failure. The aim of this study was to describe the exact mechanism of fracture of the modular femoral neck in an uncemented stem. METHODS: Clinical, metallurgical, and mechanical analysis including finite-element modelling and elemental-sensitive tissue analysis with the micro-PIXE method was performed on two patients treated with fully modular primary THA made from Titanium alloy of the same oval taper-cone design...

BACKGROUND: Most femoral components used now for total hip arthroplasty are modular, requiring a strong connection at assembly. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of assembly force on the strength of head-trunnion interface and to measure the initial displacement of the head on the trunnion with different assembly forces. METHODS: Three assembly load levels were assessed (A: 2 kN, B: 4 kN, C: 6 kN) with 4 implants in each group. The stems were mounted in a custom rig and the respective assembly loads were applied to the head at a constant rate of 0...

INTRODUCTION: Modular total hip arthroplasty implants can help the operating surgeon reproduce the optimum limb length and offset; however, the modularity can lead to fretting and corrosion with associated metal-related problems. Although metal-on-metal bearings are often reported to have problems, recent case reports suggest that the problems can occur with any articulation, usually as a result of problems at the head/neck junction. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed three cases of a specific implant combination with nontraumatic trunnion failure, with two cases presenting as acute complete dissociation of the femoral head from the neck...

BACKGROUND: Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) has demonstrated significantly reduced wear and osteolysis into the second decade for total hip arthroplasty. There is a relative paucity of data with ≥36-mm bearings. Issues include potential effects of reduced liner thickness and component position on wear, osteolysis, and mechanical failure of the bearing. METHODS: Radiographs of 48 primary total hip arthroplasties with ≥36-mm modular XLPE bearings were analyzed at a minimum 5 years postoperative on serial radiographs using a validated, edge-detection-based algorithm...

The use of modular stems is still debated and controversial. Some authors have highlighted a number of disadvantages of modular prostheses including high costs, the tendency to fracture, the fretting and corrosion and the increased production of debris. Other authors have emphasized several advantages to adapt the prosthesis to the morphometric differences of patients, to allow better accuracy in restoring the anatomy and biomechanics of hip joint. The advantages of the modular devices appear to be more evident in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH)...
