Fat embolism during total joint arthroplasty or intramedullary procedures is well documented and is infrequently fatal. Considerable morbidity is associated with fat embolism syndrome, and post operative cognitive dysfunction is frequently seen, yet the exact pathophysiology remains unclear. Intraoperative cerebral microemboli can be detected using transcranial Doppler ultrasound and moreover ...

The beneficial role of intertrochanteric varus or valgus osteotomy in the treatment of hip osteoarthrosis has been recognised since the 1920s. Even today, it has an important role to delay the need for hip replacement in younger patients. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the long-term results of ...

Surgical technique is an important factor affecting recovery of hip function after total hip arthroplasty (THA). We therefore asked whether short-term recovery of hip strength and motion would differ between the anterior and anterolateral THA approaches. We presumed that although both approaches would improve hip function by 16 weeks postsurgery ...
