Ultrasound has emerged as one of the most utilized tools to diagnose musculoskeletal disorders and to assist in interventions. Traditionally, sonographic examination of the hip joint has been challenging because most of the major structures are deeply situated, thus requiring the use of curvilinear transducer for better penetrance. The posterior lateral hip is a frequent area for musculoskeletal pain and nerve entrapments. Common disorders include greater trochanteric pain syndrome, gluteus medius tendinopathy, piriformis syndrome, pudendal neuralgia and proximal hamstring tendinopathy...

Purpose: Bipolar hemiarthroplasty (HA) is an option for the treatment of unstable intertrochanteric fracture in elderly patients. There is a raising concern regarding cable-grip related complications for the fixation of trochanteric fragments. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate outcome of cementless HA with fixation for the trochanteric fragments using monofilament wires in unstable intertrochanteric fracture. Materials and Methods: We reviewed 92 cementless bipolar HAs using a grit-blasted long stem design for unstable intertrochanteric fractures in 91 elderly patients with a mean age of 81...

The purpose of this study is to present our experience of treating adolescent femoral fractures using a locked intramedullary nail with a lateral trochanteric entry point. We retrospectively reviewed 15 femoral fractures in 13 adolescents who were treated in our unit between 2011 and 2014. Data collected included patient demographics, mechanism of injury, type of fracture, associated injuries, time to union and complications. A radiographic review was also undertaken. The mean time to radiological union in 14 out of the 15 fractures was 13 weeks (range, 10-20 weeks)...

BACKGROUND: Impingement ensures a narrow arc of pathologic loading in adolescent hips with sequelae of Perthes Disease. Proper surgical interference when the hip is still in the pre-arthritic stage restores function and protects the young hip from early degenerative changes. METHODS: Osteochondroplasty at the femoral head-neck junction and relative lengthening of the femoral neck by distal transfer of the greater trochanter was performed for 12 adolescents with combined intra-articular/extra-articular impingement due to sequelae of Perthes disease in terms of coxa magna, coxa plana, coxa brevis, with an overriding greater trochanter...

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) affects 10-25% of people in developed countries. The underlying etiology for GTPS is most commonly the tendinosis or a tendon tear of the gluteus medius, minimus or both at the greater trochanter; the inflammation of the tendon is not a major feature. We critically evaluated conservative treatment, for which we reviewed 76 publications, grading them according to four levels of evidence. We identified a wide variety of conservative treatment options: home therapy (insoles, walking sticks/crutches, orthotic devices, stretching exercises and preventive measures); physiotherapy (massage and stretching exercises); infiltrations (corticosteroids and local anesthetics); image-guided infiltrations (fluoroscopy and ultrasound); shockwave therapy; platelet-rich plasma injection; and drug therapy...

INTRODUCTION: In many low and middle-income countries (LMICs) SIGN nail is commonly used for antegrade femoral intramedullary (IM) nailing, using a start site either at the tip of the greater trochanter or piriformis fossa. While a correct start site is considered an essential technical step; few studies have evaluated the impact of using an erroneous start site. This is particularly relevant in settings with limited access to fluoroscopy to aid in creating a nail entry point. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of antegrade SIGN IM nailing start site on radiographic alignment and health-related quality of life...

Hip and groin pain is a common clinical problem. Multiple causes can generate hip or groin pain, often sharing clinical and demographic characteristics. Diagnostic imaging tests play an important role in the etiological diagnosis. New forms of extra-articular hip impingement have recently been recognized as a cause of hip pain and limited function especially in young active patients. These conditions include ischiofemoral impingement, anterior inferior iliac spine and subspine impingement, iliopsoas impingement and greater trochanteric-pelvic impingement...

BACKGROUND: The direct anterior approach (DAA) in total hip arthroplasty is of significant interest to both patients and surgeons, largely due to intense marketing. This study addressed the question, "What is the level of promotion of DAA total hip arthroplasty on the internet by American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) members?" METHODS: An internet search was performed to identify surgeon-specific websites for each member of the AAHKS using the members' full name and a previously published set of criteria...

BACKGROUND: Extended trochanteric osteotomy (ETO) is a well-established surgical technique used for femoral stem retrieval in revision hip arthroplasty procedures. Fixation of ETO is commonly achieved through wire, cable or cable-plate fixation. No evidence exists to date to suggest which method is superior when used in an acute traumatic setting. METHODS: Thirty cases of acute periprosthetic fracture requiring femoral stem revision with an ETO were identified over a 10-year period...
