Hip arthroplasy

Plamen Kinov, Panayot P Tanchev, Martin Ellis, Gershon Volpin
The risk of venous thromboembolism following major orthopaedic procedures, such as joint arthroplasty and hip fracture surgery, are well recognised and represent one of the major challenges in orthopaedic practice, having in mind the increasing number of arthroplasties of the hip and knee done worldwide per year and their successful outcome. This potentially fatal complication remains a challenge in orthopaedic practice. The percentage of patients in whom antithrombotic prophylaxis has not been administrated or has been inadequate may reach 50%...

This case report describes a patient who had a metal-on-metal hip prosthesis implanted 37 years ago. The hip function and X-ray are presented. The levels of cobalt and chromium ions in blood are analyzed and found to be about 40 times higher than normal. Consequences are discussed.

AIMS: To determine what clinical factors relating to efficacy besides complications of orthopedic surgery for patients treated with anti-tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α therapy (infliximab), we analyzed the clinical data of 52 cases of orthopedic surgery, such as total hip arthroplasy (THA), total knee arthroplasty (TKA), total shoulder arthroplasy (TSA), total elbow arthroplasty (TEA), arthroscopic synovectomy, foot arthroplasty, spine surgery, hand surgery and fracture. METHODS: We analyzed clinical factors including age, disease duration, preoperative C-reactive protein (CRP), disease activity score (DAS)-28, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-3, and rheumatoid arthritis particle-agglutination (RAPA) in 52 cases of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) undergoing orthopedic surgery...

Our study aimed at analysis and presentation of intraoperative complications during total hip replacements with the use of limited posterior approach according to T.V. Swanson. Consecutive 210 hip arthroplasies (79 males, 131 females, aged 20-87 years, mean age 61 +/- 12,) were analyzed according to intraoperative complications. Left hip was operated in 117 cases, right in 93, bilateral procedure was performed in 27 cases (9 men, 18 women). Idiopathic disease occurred in 196 hips, 8 were result of rheumatoid arthritis, in 5 was of dysplastic origin and one occurred due to idiopathic necrosis of femoral head...

PURPOSE: Hypobaric local anesthetics for total hip replacement (THR) have potential advantages related to body position and differential block. However, the dose requirements of hypobaric local anesthetics for THR have not been clearly established. Therefore, we undertook a dose-response study of hypobaric tetracaine for THR. METHODS: In a randomized, controlled, and double-blinded manner, three groups of 20 patients each undergoing THR received spinal anesthesia using either 10, 12, or 14 mg of 0...

The present research has been carried out with the aim of contributing to the understanding of morphological changes in human articular cartilage during osteoarthrosis and to evaluate the usefulness of TEM in this application. Only the matrix was examined in this first phase of study. Fragments from the femoral head of 20 patients subjected total hip arthroplasis, were studied by TEM after treatment with current procedures. The images obtained were considered observing the division of cartilage into superficial, intermediate and deep layers...
