BACKGROUND: Frailty and disability from arthritis are closely intertwined and little is known about the impact of frailty on total hip arthroplasty (THA) outcomes. We hypothesized that higher preoperative frailty is associated with more adverse events following THA. METHODS: All patients (≥50 years) undergoing unilateral primary or revision THA at a single institution from 2005 through 2016 were included. We analyzed the association of frailty (measured by a frailty deficit index) with postoperative outcomes in hospital, within 90 days, and within 1 year using multivariable logistic and Cox regression, adjusting for age...

As a mature technology gradually, the total hip arthroplasty has been known and conducted by more and more orthopedic surgeons. However, it also increased the number of hip revisions. The reasons for revision of hip mainly include: unstable, infection, aseptic loosening prosthesis, prosthesis peripheral fracture, liner wear and so on, and the acetabulum bone defect and the choice of acetabular prosthesis have been perplexing surgeons. In this paper, we summarise classification and reconstruction of acetabulum bone defect in hip revision oprations, compare the advantages and disadvantages of all kinds of classification, on this basis can have more than one bone grafting mode and the choice of the acetabulum prosthesis for reconstruction of acetabulum, then expound the ways of material sources, bone grafting modes and complex acetabulum bone defect reconstruction as well as the choice of the ways of fixed prosthesis, providing the basis for clinical doctors to deal with all kinds of acetabulum bone defect and the choice of the acetabulum prosthesis, guiding patient specific therapy more precisely...

Background and purpose - Controversies exist regarding thromboprophylaxis in orthopedic surgery. We studied whether the thromboprophylaxis in hip fracture patients treated with osteosynthesis should start preoperatively or postoperatively. Data were extracted from the nationwide Norwegian Hip Fracture Register (NHFR). The risks of postoperative deaths, reoperations, and intraoperative bleeding were studied within 6 months after surgery. Patients and methods - After each operation for hip fracture in Norway the surgeon reports information on the patient, the fracture, and the operation to the NHFR...

BACKGROUND: Timing of surgery in geriatric hip fracture treatment remains controversial. Early surgery is acknowledged as a quality indicator and NICE guidelines recommend surgery within 0-48 h from admission. In 2014 we implemented the indicator of early surgery in our institution, enhancing operative treatment within the next calendar day. We aimed to evaluate the implementation, define the room for improvement and provide strategies to maintain the quality indicator. METHODS: Clinical outcome of 744 patients (January 2011-December 2013) before early surgery was implemented, compared to 817 patients (June 2014-May 2017) after implementation of early surgery with a follow-up of 6 months...

INTRODUCTION/AIM: Recent comparisons of suture versus metal staple skin closure on the rates of wound complications in orthopaedic surgeries have yielded conflicting results. Several studies have since started to approach this question based on anatomic location, comparing suture versus staple closure in total hip and knee arthroplasty and acetabulum fracture surgery. Ankle fractures are one of the most commonly treated fractures by orthopaedic surgeons with unique challenges to skin closure due to the lack of subcutaneous support...
