CASE: A 40-year-old man who underwent total hip replacement on the left side with a metal-on-metal (MOM) implant reported swelling at the operative site within 6 weeks of the arthroplasty. Tissue sampled during the revision arthroplasty showed an aseptic lymphocyte-dominated vasculitis-associated lesion (ALVAL). CONCLUSION: ALVAL is a widely recognized complication of MOM hip implants and needs to be considered early, even in completely asymptomatic patients with normal metal ion levels and normal radiographs...

CASE: A 65-year-old farmer re-presented 5 years after sustaining a midshaft prosthetic fracture of a previous long-stem revision hip replacement. He was treated with a proximal-loading short femoral stem, and did not require an extended trochanteric osteotomy for removal of the well-fixed distal implant. He was able to fully bear weight immediately postoperatively, and he remained pain-free without functional loss at the 42-month follow-up. CONCLUSION: This use of a modern short-stem prosthesis is a treatment option for a potentially complex prosthetic fracture in highly active patients, and it reduces intraoperative complexity...

Introduction: Traumatic dislocation of the hip with ipsilateral fracture neck femur is a rare injury because of the different mechanism of both these injuries. The management of such injuries is a challenge as the chances of nonunion and avascular necrosis of femoral head are very high with fixation methods. We report a case of obturator dislocation of the hip with ipsilateral fracture neck of the femur which was treated with uncemented total hip replacement. Case Report: A 32-year-old male sustained obturator dislocation with ipsilateral fracture neck femur following road traffic accident...

BACKGROUND: Existing evidence regarding the value of preoperative education and/or exercise (prehabilitation) for patients undergoing total joint replacement is conflicting. The purpose of this study was to conduct an updated, comprehensive systematic review with meta-analyses to determine the longitudinal effects and efficacy of prehabilitation on postoperative outcomes in patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty (THA) or total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS: We searched 11 electronic databases (MEDLINE, AMED, CINAHL, Embase, Scopus, ProQuest, PEDro, SportDiscus, PsycINFO, and Cochrane) from their inception to May 2016 for randomized controlled trials that compared changes in pain, function, strength, anxiety, and hospital length of stay following THA or TKA...

BACKGROUND: Adverse Reaction to Metal Debris (ARMD) is still a major reason for revision surgeries in patients with metal-on-metal (MoM) hip replacements. ARMD consists of a wide range of alterations in periprosthetic tissues, most important of which are metallosis, inflammation, pseudotumors and necrosis. Studies investigating histopathological findings and their association to implant wear or indirect measures of wear have yielded inconsistent results. Therefore, we aimed to investigate bearing surface wear volume, whole blood and synovial fluid metal ion concentrations, histopathological findings in periprosthetic tissues and their associations...

The introduction of new materials and better implant coatings seems to provide the prerequisites for more intense physical activities after total joint arthroplasties of the lower extremity. Despite recent advances in implant design and materials, recommendations for sport after total joint arthroplasty have not been updated over the past 20 years. The introduction of modern uncemented fixation as well as highly cross-linked polyethylene into total hip arthroplasty allow for a more active life-style without an increased risk of loosening or complications...

BACKGROUND: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a systemic, autoimmune disease leading to joint destruction and ultimately disability. Bone marrow (BM) is an important compartment in RA, where pathological processes from "outside the joint" can occur. IL-17 is a cytokine that exerts proinflammatory effects and participates in the process of bone destruction. It is believed that IL-17 is involved in pathogenesis of RA. However, little is known about the biology of this cytokine in BM. In the present study we investigated Th17-related cytokines in RA BM...

We study, apropos of a case, a total hip arthroplasty in a patient with osteogenesis imperfecta. The characteristics of this disease, such as high risk of fracture and the presence of deformities, make this surgery a challenge for the orthopedic surgeon. In this manuscript, we review for the first time in this indication the preoperative planning and the selection of implants, with special emphasis on measures for the prevention of complications.

BACKGROUND: The fluoroscopically assisted direct anterior approach for total hip arthroplasty has gained interest in recent years. One of the perceived advantages is the use of fluoroscopy to aid in the positioning of implants. The purpose of this study was to measure the radiation entrance surface dose to anatomically important areas of both patients and surgeons during direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty. METHODS: Radiation dosimetry badges were placed at the sternal notch and pubic symphysis of 50 patients undergoing direct anterior approach total hip arthroplasty...

Background: The Hirsch index (h-index) is a measure that evaluates both research volume and quality-taking into consideration both publications and citations of a single author. No prior work has evaluated academic productivity and contributions to the literature of adult total joint replacement surgeons. This study uses h-index to benchmark the academic impact and identify characteristics associated with productivity of faculty members at joint replacement fellowships. Methods: Adult reconstruction fellowship programs were obtained via the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons website...

OBJECTIVES: Since 2009, single-use (SU) ancillaries for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and total hip arthroplasty (THA) have been marketed to replace reusable ancillaries. The concept is not innovative but their use in orthopedics is still uncommon. An assessment has been done for the use of SU ancillary in Assistance publique-hôpitaux de Paris with the consequences for the patient, the surgeon and the hospital. METHODS: A technical and a clinical review has been done with those devices in 2015...

BACKGROUND: Total joint patients are particularly vulnerable to perioperative hypothermia (PH) (combined effects of anesthesia, radiation, and convective heat loss from exposed skin surfaces and cool temperatures in the operating room). There are limited studies on PH in these patients. METHODS: In a retrospective review of 204 patients undergoing primary hip and 179 undergoing primary knee replacement surgeries, time and temperature parameters were collected from the electronic health records from preoperative and postoperative recovery room nursing assessments, intraoperative anesthesia records, and floor nursing notes...

PURPOSE: to report our initial experience with adjunctive hip arthroscopy and periacetabular osteotomy (PAO). METHODS: Retrospective review of patients who underwent PAO and ipsilateral hip arthroscopy between 2003 and 2013. Indications for arthroscopy were mechanical symptoms and/or positive magnetic resonance imaging to suggest intra-articular pathology including chondrolabral lesions, ligamentum teres tears and hypertrophy, and synovitis. Preoperative Tönnis arthritis grades, age, sex, operative findings and treatment, complications, and, if available, hip survival were recorded...
