Background: The modularity in total hip arthroplasty (THA) allows orthopaedic surgeons for an exact reconstruction of hip biomechanical parameters especially in revision and tumor arthroplasty. Modular structured femoral stems using taper junctions showed increased implant breakage in the recent past. Presentation of the hypothesis: We hypothesize that a novel modular stem-neck-interface leads to less implant breakage compared to conventional femoral stems. Testing of the hypothesis: For this purpose, a novel modular femoral stem for THA was to design and manufacture...

INTRODUCTION: The Taperloc® Complete femoral stem (Zimmer Biomet, Warsaw, Indiana) builds on the widespread clinical success of the original Taperloc design used since 1982. Enhancements to the Complete design include a lowered caput-collum-diaphyseal (CCD) angle from 138° to 133° for improved offset, optimized neck taper with polished neck flats to increase range of motion, reduced distal geometry to improve proximal canal fill, and gradual off-loading that is the goal of tapered geometry...

Complication rates of hip fractures after proximal femoral nail are not rare. In such fractures, treatment invariably comprises the extraction of proximal femoral nail and the introduction of a different hip prosthesis. To solve this problem, we aimed to develop a new implant, the modular nail prosthesis, which combines an intramedullary nail with a hip prosthesis. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of stress load distribution on the stem using finite element analysis under laboratory conditions...

BACKGROUND: We questioned whether there was a radiographic difference in hip geometry reconstruction and implant fixation between 3 different cementless stem design concepts in patients with primary end-stage hip osteoarthritis. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated the preoperative and postoperative radiographs by 2 independent and blinded reviewers in a series of 264 consecutive patients who had received either a straight double-tapered stem with 3 offset options (group A), a straight double-tapered stem with 2 shape options and modular necks (group B), and a bone-preserving curved tapered stem with 4 offset options (group C)...

This report describes a case of mechanically assisted crevice corrosion and secondary adverse local tissue reaction in a patient following a total hip arthroplasty, utilizing a modular neck (bi-modular) femoral component. Radiographic evaluation demonstrated a well-positioned, stable, cementless arthroplasty. Upon further evaluation, the patient had elevated serum cobalt and chromium levels, and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a periprosthetic pseudotumor. Corrosion of both the neck-stem and head-neck junctions was suspected...

INTRODUCTION: The design of the cementless Symax-HA femoral stem is based on geometrical analysis of human femoral anatomy to optimise the fit within the femur. The stem combines an anatomical proximal section enabling a metaphyseal anchorage with a straight distal section. This results in an improved proximal load transfer.We aimed to determine the overall survival of total hip arthroplasty (THA) in patients operated at our institution with the Symax stem. Secondly, we investigated the cause of revision for patients having THA including the Symax stem...

INTRODUCTION: The incidence of periprosthetic femoral fractures around total hip arthroplasties is increasing. Fractures around a stable implant stem (Vancouver type B1) are among the most common of these fractures. Various fixation strategies for Vancouver type B1 periprosthetic fractures have been reported in the literature; however, little high-level evidence exists. This study was designed to determine the current management strategies and opinions among orthopaedic surgeons treating Vancouver type B1 periprosthetic femoral fractures, and to evaluate the need for a large prospective randomized controlled trial for the management of these injuries...

INTRODUCTION: The number of revision hip arthroplasties being performed is growing and implantation of a cementless stem has become established as the gold standard. For producing a primary stability, the press-fit procedure is the method of choice, but also can be achieved by multiple-point impactions. Specific femoral stems should follow the anatomical shape and provide a more extensive anchorage. The objective of this study was to evaluate the type, localization of the impaction and resulting primary stability of two different femoral revision stem designs (kinked vs...

BACKGROUND: Fretting and corrosion at the modular femoral head-femoral neck (taper) interface have been reported in retrieved total hip arthroplasty (THA) prostheses. This study investigated associations among implant design, radiographic factors, and patient factors with corrosion and fretting at the taper interface in retrieved metal-on-polyethylene modular THA prostheses. METHODS: Ninety-two retrieved primary metal-on-polyethylene THA implants were evaluated and graded for fretting, corrosion, and damage at the taper interface, including the femoral stem trunnion and femoral head...

In total hip arthroplasty (THA), the femoral stem can be fixed with or without bone cement. Cementless stem fixation is recommended for young and active patients as it eliminates the risk of loss of fixation at the bone-cement and cement-implant interfaces. Cementless fixation, however, suffers from a relatively high early revision rate. In the current research, a novel low-stiffness hip stem was designed, fabricated and tested. The stem design provided the option to inject biodegradable bone cement that could enhance initial stem stability...

BACKGROUND: Although the popularity of the direct anterior approach for total hip arthroplasty has increased, the femoral procedure in this approach is considered technically challenging, and one of the most frequent complications reported was periprosthetic femoral fractures. The present study aimed to identify factors for predicting the risk of periprosthetic femoral fractures after using stems with a cementless tapered-wedge design through the direct anterior approach. METHODS: We retrospectively assessed the medical records of 686 patients (851 hips) who underwent primary total hip arthroplasty using a single stem with a cementless tapered-wedge design having a short or standard length option...

BACKGROUND: The change in mechanical properties of femoral cortical bone tissue surrounding the stem of the hip endoprosthesis is one of the causes of implant instability. We present an analysis used to determine the best conditions for long-term functioning of the bone-implant system, which will lead to improvement of treatment results. METHODS: In the present paper, a finite element method coupled with a bone remodelling model is used to evaluate how different three-dimensional prosthesis models influence distribution of the density of bone tissue...

Hip osteoarthritis is the most common joint disorder, and is represented by a degenerative process, resulting in pain and functional impairment. If conservative treatment for hip osteoarthritis fails, the only remaining option is hip arthroplasty. Despite good survival of implants, loosening of components is the most common complication. This leads to revision surgeries, which are technically demanding, expensive, and result in a low satisfaction rate. Uncemented hip replacements require proper osseointegration for increased survival...

BACKGROUND: Dense and stiff metallic femoral stems implanted into femurs for total hip arthroplasties produce a stress shielding effect since they modify the original load sharing path in the bony structure. Consequently, in the long term, the strain adaptive nature of bones leads to bone resorption, implant loosening, and the need for arthroplasty revision. The design of new cementless femoral stems integrating open porous structures can reduce the global stiffness of the stems, allowing them a better match with that of bones and provide their firm fixation via bone ingrowth, and, thus reduce the risk of implantation failure...

BACKGROUND: Trunnionosis at the modular head-neck taper interface in metal-on-polyethylene total hip arthroplasty (MoP THA) has been shown to occur, and represents a potential mode of MoP THA failure. The purpose of the present investigation is to elucidate differences in fretting and corrosion at the head-neck taper interface of prostheses retrieved from bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BH) and MoP THA. METHODS: A retrieval analysis of BH and MoP THA prostheses featuring a single taper design from a single manufacturer and in vivo for a minimum 2 years was performed...
