BACKGROUND: Impingement resulting in soft tissue damage has been observed in hips with abnormal morphologies. Geometric parameterisation can be used to automatically generate a range of bone geometries for use in computational models, including femurs with cam deformity on the femoral neck. METHODS: This study verified patient-specific parametric finite element models of 20 patients with cam deformity (10 female, 10 male) through comparison to their patient-specific segmentation-based equivalents...

INTRODUCTION: Among the various options for internal fixation of acetabular fractures, the enlarged iliofemoral approach is less often used, being more invasive, although providing greater exposure enabling control of all components in complex fractures. Even so, the impact of its invasiveness has not been confirmed, and long-term results are not known. We therefore performed a retrospective study, aiming 1) to assess long-term functional outcome, and 2) to assess associated morbidity...

Hip arthroscopy as we know it today developed over the last 15 to 20 years, yet its true beginning is far more dated. Initially developed as a means of removing loose bodies or as a means of lavage, hip arthroscopy was not utilized to treat femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) until much later. Its usefulness as a means of treating FAI did not arise until hip impingement was understood to be causal in the development of degenerative changes of the labrum and articular surfaces. As our understanding of FAI grew, the tools for treating it developed in tandem...

BACKGROUND: Cup malposition is a common cause of impingement, limitation of ROM, acceleration of bearing wear, liner fracture, and instability in THA. Previous studies of the safe zone based on plain radiographs have limitations inherent to measuring angles from two-dimensional projections. The current study uses CT to measure component position in stable and unstable hips to assess the presence of a safe zone for cup position in THA. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Does acetabular component orientation, when measured on CT, differ in stable components and those revised for recurrent instability? (2) Do CT data support historic safe zone definitions for component orientation in THA? METHODS: We identified 34 hips that had undergone revision of the acetabulum for recurrent instability that also had a CT scan of the pelvis between August 2003 and February 2017...

BACKGROUND: Bone loss in patients undergoing revision THA poses a considerable challenge for orthopaedic surgeons. Often, to achieve better fixation in remaining bone, larger diameter acetabular components and reaming superiorly may be necessary. However, this is likely to raise the hip center of rotation, which may lead to altered biomechanics, specifically, insufficiency of the abductor muscles, altered gait, and increased risk of dislocation from impingement. More recently, a newer acetabular shell has been designed to more closely replicate the native hip center of rotation in these circumstances while maintaining adequate fixation...

This review aims to summarize the basic treatment principles of fractures according to their types and general management principles of special conditions including physeal fractures, multiple fractures, open fractures, and pathologic fractures in children. Definition of the fracture is needed for better understanding the injury mechanism, planning a proper treatment strategy, and estimating the prognosis. As the healing process is less complicated, remodeling capacity is higher and non-union is rare, the fractures in children are commonly treated by non-surgical methods...

Periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is a complex surgical procedure to restore acetabular coverage in the dysplastic hip, and the amount of acetabular rotation during PAO plays a key role. Using computational simulations, this study assessed the optimal direction and amount of the acetabular rotation in three dimensions for a patient undergoing PAO. Anatomy-specific finite element (FE) models of the hip were constructed based on clinical CT images. The calculated acetabular rotation during PAO were 9.7°, 18°, and 4...

BACKGROUND: The acetabular fossa is thought to be located in the center of the acetabulum, and acetabular reaming in total hip arthroplasty is conventionally performed in the center of the fossa. However, the actual location of the fossa and the influence that hypoplasia or deformity may have on the position of the fossa are unknown. We hypothesized that the fossa is located in the center of the acetabulum, regardless of hypoplasia or deformity. METHODS: Fifty patients with normal hips (normal hip group), 50 patients with dysplasia who underwent rotational acetabular osteotomy (dysplastic hip group), and 46 patients with osteoarthritis who underwent total hip arthroplasty (osteoarthritic hip group) were evaluated by computed tomography (CT) imaging...

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a developmental defect that prevents normal articulation between the acetabulum and the femoral head. This is an unusual condition, with a prevalence of 1-2 per thousand, and with only two poorly described skeletons documented in South American paleopathological literature. In this work we report an individual with such a condition, from the archeological site Tres Cruces I (Quebrada del Toro, Salta, Argentina). Several radiocarbon dates and associated materials date it to the Superior Formative (400-1000 AD)...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine if there is an anatomic relationship between pelvic geometry and acetabular depth. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred and fifty-one anteroposterior pelvic radiographs (157 hip joints) were selected and analyzed in a retrospective fashion. Six parameters, including iliac offset, ischial offset, acetabular offset, pelvic height, center-edge (CE) angle of Wiberg, and acetabular index (AI) angle of Tönnis were measured for each of the hip joints...

Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a common congenital malformation characterized by mismatch in shape between the femoral head and acetabulum, and leads to hip dysplasia. To date, the pathogenesis of DDH is poorly understood and may involve multiple factors, including genetic predisposition. However, comprehensive genetic analysis has not been applied to investigate a genetic component of DDH. In the present study, 10 pairs of healthy fathers and DDH daughters were enrolled to identify genetic hallmarks of DDH using high throughput whole genome sequencing...

PURPOSE: Rotational acetabular osteotomy is a type of pelvic osteotomy that involves rotation of the acetabular bone to improve the bony coverage of the femoral head for patients with acetabular dysplasia. Favourable post-operative long-term outcomes have been reported in previous studies. However, there is a paucity of published data regarding three-dimensional bony coverage. The present study investigated the three-dimensional bony coverage of the acetabulum covering the femoral head in hips before and after rotational acetabular osteotomy and in normal hips...

BACKGROUND: Triple pelvic osteotomy (TPO) is a treatment option in children and adolescents with residual acetabular dysplasia after developmental dislocation of the hip (DDH). However, TPO to redirect the acetabulum is often blamed for anterior and lateral overcoverage of the femoral head. The main objectives of this study were to assess the potential clinical impact, frequency, and radiological features of acetabular overcorrection. Evidence of post-operative remodelling and associations linking younger age at surgery and/or dysplasia severity to the existence and magnitude of overcorrection were sought...

BACKGROUND: Most orthopedic surgeons prefer spica cast immobilization in children for 4 to 12 weeks after surgical hip reconstruction in children with developmental hip dysplasia. This challenging treatment may be associated with complications. Studies are lacking that focus on early mobilization without casting for postoperative care after hip reconstruction. METHODS: Twenty-seven children (3.4±2.0 years), including 33 hips with developmental hip dysplasia (DDH) and dislocation of the hip (Tönnis grade 1 to 4), who underwent hip reconstruction (Dega acetabuloplasty, varisation-derotation osteotomy and facultative open reduction) were retrospectively included in this study...

In the realm of hip preservation, hip arthroscopy is often used to address intra-articular impingement pathology, whereas periacetabular osteotomy (PAO) is used to address dysplasia and instability. Indications to combine these 2 procedures include hip dysplasia and symptomatic instability with a concomitant symptomatic labral tear or the other symptomatic intra-articular pathology (i.e., loose body, chondral flap). The arthroscopic portion of the procedure allows repair of the injured labrum and close inspection of the hip joint, and the PAO addresses undercoverage and/or inappropriate version of the acetabulum...
