BACKGROUND: Revision THA to treat recurrent instability can itself be complicated by recurrent instability, and when this occurs, this problem is difficult to treat. Some patients' THAs will continue to dislocate despite use of a constrained liner. One option in this difficult-to-treat group is conversion to a dual-mobility (DM) construct, but there are few data on this approach. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What were the Harris hip scores in a small group of patients whose constrained liners were converted to DM constructs to treat recurrent dislocation? (2) What were the redislocation, rerevision, and DM construct retention rates in these patients? METHODS: We conducted a retrospective analysis of a longitudinally maintained institutional database maintained by individuals other than the treating surgeons to identify patients undergoing conversion of constrained liners to DM constructs in revision THA from 2011 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Dislocation is one of the most common complications after revision THA. Dual-mobility constructs and large femoral heads (ie, 40 mm) are two contemporary, nonconstrained bearing options used in revision THA to minimize the risk of dislocation; however, it is not currently established if there is a clear benefit to using dual-mobility constructs over large femoral heads in the revision setting. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We sought to determine if dual-mobility constructs would provide a reduction in dislocation, rerevision for dislocation, and reoperation or other complications as compared with large femoral heads in revision THA...

BACKGROUND: Prevention of dislocation after primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) begins with patient preoperative assessment and planning. METHODS: We performed a literature search to assess historical perspectives and current strategies to prevent dislocation after primary THA. The search yielded 3458 articles, and 154 articles are presented. RESULTS: Extremes of age, body mass index >30 kg/m2 , lumbosacral pathology, surgeon experience, and femoral head size influence dislocation rates after THA...

Dislocation after revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) continues to be one of the most common and concerning complications after the procedure. As with every hip arthroplasty, it is essential to optimize component positioning, minimize impingement, and maintain the integrity of the abductor complex during the revision THAs. However, in several revision circumstances, additional strategies are required to mitigate the risk of dislocation, particularly those being revised for instability or those with cognitive or neuromuscular disorders...

INTRODUCTION: Osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) remains a therapeutic challenge for patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA). The majority of these patients are young with high functional demand, and show an increased risk of dislocation following surgery than patients with osteoarthritis. The use of double mobility cup (DMC) has been linked with lower rates of complications when compared to conservative cups; however, the literature is scarce over DMC results in patients with ONFH...

PURPOSE: Despite numerous reconstructive techniques and prosthetic devices, pelvic reconstructions following peri-acetabular malignant tumours resections are highly challenging. In the present study, we describe our experience with the Integra® (Lépine, Genay, France) ice-cream cone prosthesis in such indications. The objective was to assess the mid-term outcomes of this device. METHODS: Twenty-four patients' chart with peri-acetabular malignant tumours, who underwent types II or II + III peri-acetabular resections according to Enneking and Dunham with subsequent reconstruction using the Integra® prosthesis between February 2009 and February 2015, were reviewed...

BACKGROUND: The choice between performing total hip arthroplasty (THA) or hemiarthroplasty (HA) is not straightforward in older patients with femoral neck fracture, particularly when co-morbidities are factored in. This led us to carry out a case-control study to determine 1) the rate of mechanical complications for these two types of implants, and 2) the rate of medical complications and mortality. HYPOTHESIS: THA with dual mobility cup (DM) will result in fewer mechanical complications than HA...

Background and purpose - Dual-mobility cups (DMCs) reduce the risk of dislocation and porous tantalum (TM) shells show favorable osseointegration after acetabular revision surgery, yet the combination of these implants has not been studied. We hypothesized that (1) cementing a DMC into a TM shell decreases the risk of dislocation; (2) DMCs cemented into TM shells are not at greater risk of re-revision; (3) liberation of tantalum ions is marginal after use of this combined technique. Patients and methods - We investigated the outcome in 184 hips (184 patients) after acetabular revision surgery with TM shells, fitted either with DMCs (n = 69), or with standard poly-ethylene (PE) liners (n = 115)...

A 77-year-old man sustained an acetabular fracture after falling from a staircase and landing on his right side. He fractured the anterior column of his acetabulum and the quadrilateral plate. He underwent a single-stage open reduction and internal fixation of the fracture combined with a dual mobility total hip arthroplasty (THA). He sustained a traumatic hip dislocation 1 month postoperatively. Closed reduction was attempted at another hospital, and the femoral stem was pulled out. We believe this was caused by the polyliner being hitched either to the acetabular cup or in the soft tissues around the ilium...

PURPOSE: Total hip arthroplasty with a dual mobility cup (DMC) is a proposed alternative to the widely performed bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BHA) for treating displaced intracapsular femoral neck fractures (DFNF) in the elderly. However, the comparison between the two modalities has not been extensively conducted thus far. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted with DFNF patients aged over 65 years who were treated either by BHA or DMC. After propensity matching each group comprised 84 patients (168 patients in total) and was analyzed using peri-operative and post-operative parameters...

AIMS: Instability remains a challenging problem in both primary and revision total hip arthroplasty (THA). Dual mobility components confer increased stability, but there are concerns about the unique complications associated with these designs, as well as the long-term survivorship. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed a systematic review of all English language articles dealing with dual mobility THAs published between 2007 and 2016 in the MEDLINE and Embase electronic databases...

BACKGROUND: Dislocation rates in posterior total hip arthroplasty (THA) range between 2% and 5%, but long-term course (recurrence of dislocation or revision surgery) is not known, most series having short follow-up or small populations. We therefore conducted a retrospective study on a large series, to determine long-term rates of recurrence and surgical revision and recurrence risk factors. HYPOTHESIS: Long-term follow-up of a large cohort of THA dislocations enables recurrence rate and factors to be determined...

BACKGROUND: A novel revision technique for failed hip resurfacings involves retention of the acetabular cup, if well-fixed, which is mated to dual-mobility (DM) prosthesis in a traditional hip replacement configuration. It is unknown whether existing damage on the retained cup will result in unacceptable wear of the DM prosthesis. METHODS: Thirty retrieved Birmingham (Smith & Nephew) monoblock cups were visually scored for damage features and area of coverage. Surface roughness measurements were obtained within each damage feature as well as reference points on each cup...

BACKGROUND: Parkinson disease (PD) results in severe limitation in ambulation caused by abnormality of gait and posture. The rate of complications, including fractures and dislocation after total hip arthroplasty (THA), can be higher among these patients. The goal of this study was to investigate the long-term outcomes of primary and revision THAs with cementless dual mobility implants. METHODS: This retrospective study examines 59 PD patients who had surgery between 2002 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: Recurrent instability remains a challenge after revision total hip arthroplasty (THA). We report the outcomes of cementing a cementless dual mobility (DM) component into a stable acetabular shell for the treatment and/or prevention of instability in revision THA. METHODS: Eighteen patients (18 THAs) undergoing revision THA with a specific monoblock DM construct cemented into a new acetabular component or an existing well-fixed component from 2011 to 2014 were retrospectively reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: We used a matched cohort of 231 cases of revision of primary dual-mobility cups (DMC) total hip arthroplasty (THA) and 231 cases of fixed cups (FC) THA, to determine whether (i) revision for infection was more frequent when using DMC-THA than FC-THA; (ii) Causes for revision were significantly different. METHODS: The French Society of Orthopaedics and Traumatology carried out a prospective multicentre study from 2010 to 2011. The inclusion criterion was an exhaustive collection of 1st revision THA (at least 1 component revised, re-revision excluded)...

Modern unipolar hip hemiarthroplasty, commonly used for displaced femoral neck fracture, is now modular, with both a variable length cobalt-chromium adapter-sleeve and large femoral head. Patients with these modular components may develop symptomatic trunnion corrosion, with elevated serum metal levels. We report the case of an 82-year-old woman, 5.5 years after a modular unipolar hip hemiarthroplasty, who presented with a 4-month history of hip pain and limp. Evaluation showed elevated serum cobalt and chromium levels and an acetabular cyst...
