Nowadays in cases of nonunions of the femoral neck, the surgeon is tempted to perform prosthetic replacement of the hip, more so if there is also evidence of avascular necrosis of the head of femur. This provides rapid pain relief and allows early mobilization. However, long-term results of hip arthroplasties, ...

Whether mini-incision total hip arthroplasty is associated with accelerated postoperative recovery is a subject of considerable controversy. A study was conducted to compare objective outcomes using gait analysis as a measure for recovery of function in patients treated with three different minimally invasive surgical approaches and the traditional posterior approach. ...

Loosening of orthopedic hip prostheses is an increasing health problem. In elderly patients with comorbidity,revision surgery may lead to high mortality rates. A less invasive surgical technique is therefore required to reduce these patient risks. To this end a percutaneous gene therapy approach was designed to destroy the periprosthetic loosening ...

Patient satisfaction is an important goal in orthopaedic surgery; however, it may not always reflect the surgical result that is obtained. By means of a systematic review according to the QUOROM criteria, we investigated how often satisfaction measured by a single question was used in trials reporting on the clinical ...

Minimal-incision technique in total hip arthroplasty (THA) has been previously defined as requiring an incision of 10 cm or less. A higher complication rate for overweight or muscular patients has been demonstrated when this arbitrary cutoff is used. The purpose of this study was to perform minimal-incision technique surgery without ...

Osteolytic metastases around the acetabulum are frequent in tumour patients, and may cause intense and drug-resistant pain of the hip. These lesions also cause structural weakening of the pelvis, limping, and poor quality of life. Percutaneous acetabuloplasty is a mini-invasive procedure for the management of metastatic lesions due to carcinoma ...

The treatment of osteonecrosis of the hip remains a dilemma. Contemporary basic science research focuses on establishing the molecular etiology of this disease with the hope of identifying targets for pharmacologic intervention. Researchers have identified specific genetic polymorphisms that may predispose its development and these may allow early diagnosis and ...

Minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty (THA) has become popular over the past few years. The advantages of this technique include reduced soft tissue damage. On the other hand, there are new risks related to reduced visualization. The widespread introduction of minimally invasive THA is still controversial. Here, we present our ...

Innominate osteotomy, varisation-derotation osteotomy, and shortening osteotomy are the most common surgical procedures used to achieve pelvifemoral realignment in the treatment of children over three years of age with developmental hip dislocation. It is well known that varus osteotomy can improve the acetabular index but it does have some disadvantages. ...
