The article presents a study on the efficacy evaluation of a modular neck and stem of the femur to restore hip anatomy in both men and women and the reduction of limb dislocation and discrepancy. Results of 1051 stems in men and 1080 stems in women were reviewed to evaluate the ability of a modular stem to restore hip anatomy. Moreover, modular neck prosthesis of the offset neck version and the adjusted stem size are helpful in restoring hip anatomy in both sexes with no significant difference.

    The article discusses a study regarding the impact of total hip arthroplasty (THA) on cost and cost-effectiveness, and the monetary benefit of reduction in periprosthetic joint infections (PJI). Topics include the focus of surgeons and researchers on preventing PJI and improving the value of...

    Introduction: Previous studies showed poor outcomes for patients undergoing revision of failed metal-on-metal total hip arthroplasty (MoM-THA) and resurfacing (RS) with an increased risk of dislocation. Dual mobility inserts are an option to retain the acetabular component and change the...

    Background: There is a general perception that adverse local tissue reactions in metal-on-metal hip arthroplasties are caused by wear, but the degree to which this is the case remains controversial. Questions/purposes: To what extent is the magnitude of wear associated with (1) the histological...

    Background: Positioning of total hip bearings involves tradeoffs, because cup orientations most favorable in terms of stability are not necessarily ideal in terms of reduction of contact stress and wear potential. Previous studies and models have not addressed these potentially competing...

    Objectives: Accurate preoperative planning is mandatory for a successful total hip arthroplasty (THA). Templating helps to achieve multiple technical goals, including offset restoration, leg-length equality, and components positioning. This study aims to measure how successful a new stepwise...

    Background: Total hip or knee arthroplasty is an elective procedure that is usually accompanied by substantial blood loss, which may lead to acute anemia. As a result, almost half of total joint arthroplasty patients receive allogeneic blood transfusions (ABT). Many studies have shown that...
