The article presents an overview of research which has looked at innovations in total hip arthroplasty, new methods of the enhancements of bone growth and fixation, hip resurfacing arthroplasty and minimal incision surgery. A discussion of the complications of arthroplasty, of the medical-legal issues related to it,and of changes which have been seen in the orthopedic industry-orthopedic surgeon relationship, is presented.

    In 40 patients undergoing total hip arthroplasty with the Mayo femoral stem we studied how preoperative digital templating corresponded to the actual intraoperative choice of implant size, position, offset and restoration of leg length. The preoperatively planned sizes of the components showed a...

    The article focuses on a study which examined the effect of arthrodesis or total disc arthroplasty on lumbar adjacent segment degeneration (ASDeg). Studies conducted from 1996 to 2006 were assessed. It was concluded that data from low-quality studies could not help in finding out which surgical...

    Background: We previously reported the outcomes at a minimum of twelve years after eighty-four Charnley low-friction arthroplasties performed in patients with osteoarthritis who were less than fifty-six years old at the time of the surgery. We now update the results of that cohort at a minimum...

    Background: It is currently unknown whether functional restrictions following total hip arthroplasty can reduce the prevalence of early postoperative dislocation. Our hypothesis was that dislocation was more likely to occur in patients who were not placed on these restrictions. Methods: We...

    BACKGROUND: Acetabular fixation during revision total hip arthroplasty in patients who have a nonsupportive superior dome and proximal migration of the acetabular component (a Paprosky Type-IIIa defect) cannot be achieved reliably with use of a hemispherical porous-coated component alone. The...
