The Effect of Computer Navigation on Trainee Learning of Surgical Skills
- Total hip arthroplasty may be preferable to hemiarthroplasty in active, elderly patients. Beadling, Lee; Press, Robert // Orthopedics Today;Nov2010, Vol. 30 Issue 11, p30
The article presents study which suggests the consideration of total hip arthroplasty for hemiarthroplasty among active and elderly patients in the U.S.
- Revision total hip arthroplasty by nonmodular short and long cementless stems. Hiroaki Kimura; Ayumi Kaneuji; Tanzo Sugimori; Tadami Matsumoto // Journal of Orthopaedic Science;Jul2008, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p335
Abstract BackgroundÂ Â The choice of appropriate implant for reconstruction during revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) is controversial. We use proximally porous-coated cementless short stems and fully porous-coated cementless long stems depending on the state of bone loss during revision...
- Accuracy considerations in navigated cup placement for total hip arthroplasty. Langlotz, U.; Grützner, P. A.; Bernsmann, K.; Kowal, J. H.; Tannast, M.; Caversaccio, M.; Nolte, L-P. // Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers -- Part H;Oct2007, Vol. 221 Issue 7, p739
Computer assisted orthopaedic surgery (CAOS) technology has recently been introduced to overcome problems resulting from acetabular component malpositioning in total hip arthroplasty. Available navigation modules can conceptually be categorized as computer tomography (CT) based, fluoroscopy...
- Outcomes of Charnley total hip arthroplasty using improved cementing with so-called second- and third-generation techniques. Hirose, Shiro; Otsuka, Hiromi; Morishima, Takkan; Sato, Keiji // Journal of Orthopaedic Science;Mar2012, Vol. 17 Issue 2, p118
Background: Techniques of cemented total hip arthroplasty have developed over time. We present the outcomes of Charnley total hip arthroplasty performed using improved second- and third-generation cementing techniques. Methods: We reviewed the radiologic results of 91 Charnley total hip...
- Lumbar spine and proximal femur bone mineral density after contralateral total hip replacement. Nehme, Alexandre; Laroche, Michel; Tricoire, Jean-Louis; Maalouf, Ghassan; Chiron, Philippe; Puget, Jean // European Journal of Orthopaedic Surgery & Traumatology;Jun2003, Vol. 13 Issue 2, p73
Controversy persists regarding the eventual bone mineral density (BMD) variations in the contralateral hip and lumbar spine after unilateral primary total hip arthroplasty. Bone loss may occur if the operation requires a period of bed rest. The purpose of this study was to characterize BMD...
- A randomised controlled trial of total hip arthroplasty versus resurfacing arthroplasty in the treatment of young patients with arthritis of the hip joint. Achten, Juul; Parsons, Nick R; Edlin, Richard P; Griffin, Damian R; Costa, Matthew L // BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders;2010, Vol. 11, Special section p1
Background: Hip replacement (arthroplasty) surgery is a highly successful treatment for patients with severe symptomatic arthritis of the hip joint. For older patients, several designs of Total Hip Arthroplasty have shown excellent results in terms of both function and value for money. However,...
- PERSPECTIVE. Parvizi, Javad // Orthopedics Today;Sep2011, Vol. 31 Issue 9, p28
The article comments on a study which focused on the association of crosslinked polyethylene with osteolysis and long-term reduction of wear.
- THA through a direct anterior approach spares muscle, expedites recovery. Mihalko, William M. // Orthopedics Today;Apr2011, Vol. 31 Issue 4, p5
The article discusses the direct anterior approach to total hip arthroplasty (THA), which is said to be gaining popularity because it avoids the splitting of any muscle or tendon.
- RIWAROKSABAN -- PIERWSZY SELEKTYWNY INHIBITOR CZYNNIKA Xa DO STOSOWANIA DOUSTNEGO. ROBAK, MARTA; CHOJNOWSKI, KRZYSZTOF // Problemy Terapii Monitorowanej;dic2009, Vol. 20 Issue 4, p279
Rivaroxaban is the highly selective, oral, direct factor Xa inhibitor. Phase III studies showed that rivaroxaban was significantly superior to subcutaneous enoxaparin in the prevention of venous thromboembolic events after major elective orthopedic surgery. It was also safe and well tolerated...
