The article looks at surgical principles and techniques used in total hip arthroplasty. Complications resulting from hip arthroplasty are discussed, including dislocation. The author looks at the etiology of related dislocation and suggests treatment techniques. Studies are discussed which utilize varying sizes of femoral bone heads in surgery.

    Between 1988 and 2002, 47 patients (50 hips) were treated with acetabular shell augmentation arthroplasty for recurrent idiopathic dislocation of their total hip arthroplasty. Apparent causes for dislocation such as deep infection, component malposition, or polyethylene wear were excluded....

    Background: Although surgical navigation reduces the rate of malpositioned acetabular cups in total hip arthroplasty (THA), its use has not been widely adopted. As a result of our perceived need for simple and efficient methods of navigation, we developed a mechanical navigation device for...

    The short-term results of middle-aged patients with severe developmental dysplasia of the hip treated with subtrochanteric femoral shortening and cementless large diameter metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty were retrospectively evaluated.

    Purpose: Dislocation following total hip arthroplasty (THA) with the posterior approach has been quite a common and bothering complication. Previous researches suggest that careful repair of the posterior structures significantly reduces this risk. The purposes of the present study were to...

    Background: Hemiarthroplasty is frequently used to treat femoral neck insufficiency resulting from neoplastic disease in the proximal part of the femur. The authors of a recent study analyzed the dislocation rates following hemiarthroplasty but excluded patients with tumor involvement of the...

  • A technique for accurate reproduction of the femoral anteversion during primary total hip arthroplasty. Karnezis, I. A. // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Jun2001, Vol. 121 Issue 6, p343 

    Accurate reproduction of the femoral anteversion is important in achieving stability of the prosthetic joint in total hip arthroplasty (THA), while placement of the femoral stem in excessive anteversion or retroversion results in an increased incidence of dislocation. Due to a number of factors,...

    Background: Posterior soft tissue repair after posterior THA reportedly decreases the risk of dislocation. Previously described techniques often require drill holes through the greater trochanter, do not include both the short external rotators and the capsule, or require a complex series of...

    Background: Recurrent dislocation after total hip arthroplasty is a disabling complication that can be difficult to treat and may not be amenable to nonoperative management. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcome associated with the use of a...
