We present the results of 228 consecutive Charnley low friction hip arthroplasties, performed in 193 patients, between July 1972 and December 1976. Unusually for this time, all hips were inserted by the posterior approach without a trochanteric osteotomy. All patients were enrolled into a prospective study; both preoperative and postoperative ...

Limited access surgery is thought to reduce post-operative morbidity and provide faster recovery of function. The percutaneous compression plate (PCCP) is a recently introduced device for the fixation of intertrochanteric fractures with minimal exposure. It has several potential mechanical advantages over the conventional compression hip screw (CHS). Our aim in ...

Large-diameter femoral heads, which may reduce dislocation, are used without extensive in vivo research. Two studies were done to determine relative dislocation rates. Study 1 compared dislocation rates in primary total hip arthroplasties (THAs) using 28- or 38-mm heads. Study 2 evaluated dislocation rates in large-diameter (38-56 mm) metal-on-metal heads. ...

BACKGROUND: Few prospective randomized studies have demonstrated benefits of minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty when compared with conventional total hip arthroplasty. We hypothesized that patients treated with a posterior mini-incision would have better results than those treated with a posterior long incision with regard to the achievement of established goals ...
Papadimitriou Nikolaos G - - 2007
BACKGROUND: The general consensus is that nonoperative treatment of developmental dysplasia of the hip should not be attempted for patients in whom previous treatment of the disease has failed, those in whom the disease was neglected, or those in whom the disease presented late. In such cases, it is believed ...

Currently, the median waiting time for total hip and knee replacement in Ontario is greater than 6 months. Waiting longer than 6 months is not recommended and may result in lower post-operative benefits. We developed a simulation model to estimate the proportion of patients who would receive surgery within the ...

In viscosupplementation, a glycosaminoglycan called hyaluronic acid (HA) is administered via intra-articular injection to patients with osteoarthritis (OA). Two systematic reviews found that HA for hip OA may relieve pain and improve function. Randomized controlled trials had differing results. Uncontrolled studies suggest that there are moderate improvements regarding pain and ...

Success of an orthopaedic operation depends on patients achieving their primary goal(s) and having satisfaction with the outcome. The enthusiasm of patients for minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty seems related to satisfaction with the operation. We hypothesized patients' attitude toward a small incision would increase their confidence and satisfaction with ...

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to show what the experience of local anaesthesia and a surgical situation meant to patients. BACKGROUND: Many patients who receive local anaesthesia will remain awake during surgery. The very fact of staying awake causes psychological and psychosocial needs. These needs must ...

Minimally invasive hip arthroplasty is thought to result in less soft tissue damage, earlier ambulation, and improved rehabilitation. This prospective blinded cohort study objectively analyzed early functional walking ability by stride analysis 2 days postoperatively. Ninety-five patients were analyzed, 43 of who received the minimal incision and 52 the traditional ...

Primary total hip arthroplasties have reported success rates of greater than 95% in many series with a longer than 10-year follow-up. Revision total hip arthroplasty due to such factors as increased high-activity levels, younger patients undergoing the procedure and increasing life expectancy has become more prevalent. An understanding of the ...
