BACKGROUND: Despite recent advances, infection remains the most common etiology of arthroplasty failure. Recent work suggests that 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25D) deficiency correlates with the frequency of periprosthetic joint infection (PJI). We endeavored to examine whether 25D3 deficiency leads to increased bacterial burden in vivo in an established mouse model of PJI and, if so, whether this effect can be reversed by preoperative 25D3 supplementation. METHODS: Mice (lys-EGFP) possessing fluorescent neutrophils were fed a vitamin D3-sufficient (n = 20) or deficient (n = 40) diet for 6 weeks...

BACKGROUND: Periprosthetic joint infection (PJI) after primary total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a devastating complication. The short-term morbidity profile of revision TKA performed for PJI relative to non-PJI revisions is poorly characterized. The purpose of this study is to determine 30-day postoperative outcomes after revision TKA for PJI, relative to primary TKA and aseptic revision TKA. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program from 2005 to 2015 was queried for primary and revision TKA cases...

BACKGROUND: Custom triflange acetabular components are being increasingly used for the reconstruction of Paprosky type IIIB acetabular defects. However, midterm survivorship data are lacking. METHODS: We queried the prospective registries at 2 high-volume revision centers for patients who had undergone revision total hip arthroplasty using a custom triflange component between 2000 and 2011. We identified 73 patients with minimum 5-year follow-up. These patients' records were reviewed to determine incidence of revision or reoperation, clinical performance, and radiographic stability...

BACKGROUND: Given the lack of studies of acetabular defect reconstruction in primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) using tantalum augments, this study aims to evaluate clinical and radiographic results for treatment with tantalum augments to reconstruct acetabular defects in primary THA. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 19 patients (19 hips) with acetabular defects who underwent primary THA using tantalum augments, with a minimum follow-up of 2 years. Clinical, radiographic, and surgical data were retrospectively evaluated...

PURPOSE: Injection drug users are at high risk for both infection with blood-borne pathogens, namely, human immune deficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis-B, -C virus, various bacterial infections, as well as early primary and secondary joint degeneration. When total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is anticipated the risk of septic complications is a major concern. The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical and radiographic outcome of patients with a history of intravenous drug use after total knee arthroplasty...

INTRODUCTION: Cognizance of common reasons for failure in primary and revision TKA, together with their time course, facilitates prevention. However, there have been few reports specifically comparing modes of failure for primary vs. revision TKA using a single prosthesis. The goal of the study was to compare the survival rates, modes of failure, and time periods associated with each mode of failure, of primary vs. revision TKA. HYPOTHESIS: The survival rates, modes of failure, time period for each mode of failure, and risk factors would differ between primary and revision TKA...

Pyoderma gangrenosum is an inflammatory, ulcerative, neutrophilic dermatosis that is clinically characterized by rapidly evolving, painful, necrotic skin lesions. It is typically associated with chronic systemic inflammatory or neoplastic diseases, but may also occur secondary to cutaneous injury or surgery (pathergy). Post-surgical pyoderma gangrenosum typically develops around surgical sites within the immediate postoperative period, mimicking early wound infection. However, common treatment strategies including antibiotics and debridement fail to improve or even worsen symptoms...

INTRODUCTION: Modern metal-on-metal hip resurfacing arthroplasty has led to decreased revision rates and high implant survival rates as compared to prior generations of resurfacing. Many of the series that report on resurfacing outcomes focus upon patients treated with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis. Patients with inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) are also treated in these series, however, their outcomes following resurfacing are underreported...

INTRODUCTION: During revision total hip arthroplasty (THA), the surgeon commonly faces deficient proximal femoral bone. In this situation, distal fixation of the prosthesis is required. The aim of the current retrospective study is to assess the clinical and radiographic midterm outcome of revision total hip arthroplasty using a modular uncemented, tapered, grit-blasted, distal straight stem system. METHODS: This retrospective study included 70 femoral revisions that were performed in 67 patients using the device of interest...

BACKGROUND: There is limited knowledge on composite allograft reconstructions in revision elbow arthroplasty. A major reason for the restricted use of freshly frozen allografts is the divergent legal requirements for allograft procurement in European countries. RESULTS: The opportunities and limitations of this complex revision surgery of the elbow are outlined based on our own restricted experiences, as well as on current literature. Our experience is in accordance with that of other institutions...

Infection of the hip after implant fixation is an uncommon yet devastating complication that results in poor long-term outcome. The gold standard treatment for chronic infection after hip arthroplasty is a two-stage protocol: eradication of infection, follow by re-implantation arthroplasty. The use of interim antibiotic-laden cement spacer has become a popular procedure to maintain hip joint function and provide antibiotic elution simultaneously before re-implantation. However, antibiotic cement spacer is mechanically weak and breaks if overloaded...

BACKGROUND: Use of large databases for orthopedic research has become extremely popular in recent years. Each database varies in the methods used to capture data and the population it represents. The purpose of this study was to evaluate how these databases differed in reported demographics, comorbidities, and postoperative complications for primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) patients. METHODS: Primary THA patients were identified within National Surgical Quality Improvement Programs (NSQIP), Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS), Medicare Standard Analytic Files (MED), and Humana administrative claims database (HAC)...

BACKGROUND: Healthcare policy is often determined by well-designed studies most often published in high-impact medical journals. However, concern about the presence of publication bias against lower-extremity arthroplasty-related studies has called into question some of the validity of certain reports. There are only a few studies investigating the presence of the bias in high-impact medical journals against lower-extremity arthroplasty intervention, particularly in the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA), New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), and the Lancet...

BACKGROUND: Little research has focused on the influence of gender on postoperative morbidity following total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). This study aimed to compare operative time, length of stay, 30-day complications, and readmissions based on patient gender. METHODS: The prospectively collected National Surgical Quality Improvement Program registry from 2005 to 2014 was queried to identify primary elective THA and TKA patients. Multivariate regression was used to compare the rates of 30-day adverse events, rates of readmission, operative time, and postoperative length of stay between men and women...
