Background: The gastric bypass has nutritional and electrolyte disturbances rate of approximately 17%. The most common deficits are protein malnutrition, ferric and zinc, in addition to the vitamin. Although rare, some malnutrition stages reach such severity that ends up being necessary hospitalization and sometimes revisional or reversal surgical procedures. Aim: To present a proposal of surgical revision for treatment of severe malnutrition after bariatric surgery...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: The transverse acetabular ligament (TAL) can be used to position the acetabular cup and may help to improve the accuracy of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, because the TAL may be covered by osteophytes, the ability to find the TAL varies greatly in the reported literature. In the present study, we introduce 2 methods and make a comparison between them to identify the easier procedure for finding an osteophyte-covered TAL. METHODS: During primary THA operations conducted from January 2012 to June 2015, a total of 100 patients (100 hips) were confirmed to have an osteophyte-covered TAL following the exposure of the acetabulum and removal of all soft tissues covering the TAL...

BACKGROUND: Antibiotic-loaded cement spacers in first-stage revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) for managing infection are associated with high dislocation and fracture rates. The aim of this study was to report the use of an antibiotic-loaded cemented supra-acetabular roof augmentation to reinforce hip stability after cement spacer insertion for first-stage total hip revision in the treatment of infected THA. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed a consecutive series of 50 THAs involving 47 patients with an infected hip requiring staged revisions of THA...

The transverse acetabulum ligament (TAL) has been used as an intraoperative anatomical landmark to position the acetabulum cup in total hip arthroplasty (THA). However, the validity of the use of TAL has not been clarified. The purpose of this study was to examine the orientation of the cup component aligned with the TAL in cadaveric study. The 31 hips in 25 whole-body embalmed cadavers were examined. The donors were 12 men and 13 women. Simulated THA procedure using image-free navigation system was performed and a trial cup with a diameter of approximately 2 mm less than the size of the acetabulum were inserted and snugly fitted on the TAL through the posterior wall of acetabulum...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: It is controversial whether the transverse acetabular ligament (TAL) is a reliable guide for determining the cup orientation during total hip arthroplasty (THA). We investigated the variations in TAL anatomy and the TAL-guided cup orientation. METHODS: 80 hips with osteoarthritis secondary to hip dysplasia (OA) and 80 hips with osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ON) were examined. We compared the anatomical anteversion of TAL and the TAL-guided cup orientation in relation to both disease and gender using 3D reconstruction of computed tomography (CT) images...

INTRODUCTION: We report how changes to our total hip arthroplasty (THA) surgical practise lead to a decrease in early hip dislocation rates. METHODS: Group B consisted of 421 consecutive primary THA operations performed via a posterior approach. The operative technique included a meticulous repair of the posterior capsule, alignment of the acetabular cup with the transverse acetabular ligament (TAL) and a 36-mm-diameter femoral head. We compared the dislocation rates and cost implications of this technique to a historical control Group A consisting of 389 patients...

BACKGROUND: Several studies have reported that the transverse acetabular ligament (TAL) can be used to orient the acetabular component during total hip arthroplasty and that it can be identified in nearly all patients. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: We attempted to determine how often the TAL could be identified during primary THA and its accuracy as a guide for acetabular component positioning. METHODS: In a prospective series of 63 patients (64 hips) undergoing primary THA, two surgeons attempted to identify the TAL and, if it was found, to use it for acetabular component orientation...
