Hip scope

Michael Ryan, Thomas Youm, Jonathan Vigdorchik
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: 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...

Today hip cups are used in a large variety of design variants and in increasing numbers of units. Their development is steadily progressing. In addition to conventional manufacturing methods for hip cups, additive methods, in particular, play an increasingly important role as development progresses. The present paper describes a modified cup model developed based on a commercially available press-fit cup (Allofit 54/JJ). The press-fit cup was designed in two variants and manufactured using selective laser melting (SLM)...

Elderly patients with hip fracture experience high morbidity and mortality, and are often undertreated for pain. Acute pain management in the elderly is challenging, with physiological frailty, medical comorbidities and cognitive impairment commonly compounding pain assessment and treatment. Guidelines outlining current best practice for acute pain management in the elderly now exist, but evidence suggests that practice remains variable and there continues to be scope for improvement. We conducted a narrative review of the literature to examine the challenges of acute pain management in the elderly, and to evaluate evidence for the role of regional nerve blocks for acute pain associated with hip fracture in the elderly...

AIM: To develop and psychometrically test the Post Hip Replacement Comfort Scale (PHRCS). BACKGROUND: Evaluation of the patient comfort after hip replacement surgery is highly important in order to increase the quality of patient care. The review of the relevant literature shows that a scale that specifically measures the patient comfort after hip replacement surgery is absent. DESIGN: Methodological design was used. This study included the development of the scale and tested the psychometric properties of the scale...

In breast cancer screening or diagnosis, it is usual to combine different images in order to locate a lesion as accurately as possible. These images are generated using a single or several imaging techniques. As x-ray-based mammography is widely used, a breast lesion is located in the same plane of the image (mammogram), but tracking it across mammograms corresponding to different views is a challenging task for medical physicians. Accordingly, simulation tools and methodologies that use patient-specific numerical models can facilitate the task of fusing information from different images...

BACKGROUND: Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is a very common congenital disorder, and late-presenting cases often require surgical treatment. Surgical reduction of the hip may be complicated by avascular necrosis (AVN), which occurs as a result of interruption to the femoral head blood supply during treatment and can result in long-term problems. Some surgeons delay surgical treatment until the ossific nucleus (ON) has developed, whereas others believe that the earlier the reduction is performed, the better the result...

Fracture liaison services prevent hip fractures by identifying other osteoporotic fractures that generally debut at a younger age. However, this study showed that a minority of hip fracture patients are already known to the health services through having had prior osteoporotic fractures. Identification of vertebral fractures in particular is lacking. INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of prior major osteoporotic fractures (MOF) in the prior 10 years preceding hip fracture in order to provide information about the potential for prevention of hip fractures by fracture liaison services (FLS)...

OBJECTIVES: It is disputed whether the time a patient waits for surgery after hip fracture increases the risk of in-hospital death. This uncertainty matters as access to surgery following hip fracture may be underprioritised due to a lack of definitive evidence. Uncertainty in the available evidence may be due to differences in characteristics of patients, their injury and their care. We summarised the literature on patients and system factors associated with time to surgery, and collated proposed mechanisms for the associations...

BACKGROUND: In 2001, the European League Against Rheumatism developed and disseminated the first guidelines for musculoskeletal (MS) ultrasound (US) in rheumatology. Fifteen years later, the dramatic expansion of new data on MSUS in the literature coupled with technological developments in US imaging has necessitated an update of these guidelines. OBJECTIVES: To update the existing MSUS guidelines in rheumatology as well as to extend their scope to other anatomic structures relevant for rheumatology...

"Stringhalt" is a horse condition that causes one or both hind legs to spasm when walking, trotting or backing. The condition is thought to be related to a neurological cause from either plant toxicity or peripheral nerve injury. The prognosis is poor and the horse's performance and quality of life can be affected. Treatment has included surgically cutting the digital extensors with varied results. The objective of the study is to utilize soft tissue release via acupressure, trigger point and myofascial release to decrease symptoms of stringhalt...
