... The main advantage of hip resurfacing is bone conservation for patients likely to outlive a primary conventional hip replacement. ... Previous attempts at hip resurfacing failed predominantly because of the consequences of a high amount of wear of thin polyethylene acetabular components and poor femoral component fixation. ... With correct patient selection, surgeon education, and operative technique, survivorship at five years is comparable with that of traditional hip replacements. ... Hip resurfacing has its own unique set of complications, including a fractured neck of the femur. It is necessary to understand the risk factors prior to performing the procedure.

Therbo; B. Lund; K.-E. Jensen; H. Schrøder // Journal of Orthopaedics & Traumatology;Jun2008, Vol. 9 Issue 2, p63 

    Abstract Background  Bioactive coating of uncemented total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is believed to increase bone ingrowth and enhance early fixation of the TKA. In a prospective randomized study using radiostereometric analysis (RSA) we examined migrations of the tibial implant, in an...

    The long-term success of arthroplastic joints is dependent on the stabilization of the implant within the skeletal site. Movement of the arthroplastic implant within the bone can stimulate osteolysis, and therefore methods which promote rigid fixation or bone growth are expected to enhance...

    Biologically, the site of arthrodesis provides a microenvironment replete of growth factors and active remodeling, which is propitious for bone regrowth. There is a theoretical possibility though that this microenvironment would also provide a fertile site for metastatic deposits to occur....

    Background: Porous tantalum has been shown to be effective in achieving bone ingrowth. However, in some circumstances, bone quality or quantity may be insufficient to allow adequate bone ingrowth. We hypothesized that local delivery of alendronate from porous tantalum would enhance the ability...

    Background: Cementless humeral resurfacing arthroplasty is a bone-conserving arthroplasty option for patients with glenohumeral arthritis. It has been successful in the older patient population. However, data regarding the results of arthroplasty in younger, more active patients are lacking. We...
