- Good Start on Using Biochemical Markers to Compare Surgical Trauma in Total Hip Replacement Approaches. Manner, Paul // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;8/3/2011, Vol. 93-A Issue 15, pe89-1
In this article the author discusses aspects of the study "Comparison of Minimally Invasive Direct Anterior Versus Posterior Total Hip Arthroplasty Based on Inflammation and Muscle Damage Markers," by Patrick F. Bergin et al. Topics include the use of biochemical markers, such as muscle injury...
- Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5b and C-terminal telopeptides of type I collagen as markers for diagnosis of aseptic loosening after total hip replacement. Landgraeber, Stefan; Löer, Franz; Heep, Hansjörg; Classen, Tim; Grabellus, Florian; Totsch, Martin; von Knoch, Marius // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Apr2010, Vol. 130 Issue 4, p441
Plain radiography, bone scintigraphy, digital subtraction arthrography and various other techniques can be used to evaluate loosening of hip replacements. These methods are associated with radiation exposure and some of them have an increased morbidity. Furthermore, in some cases the results are...
- Multiple biomarkers analysis for the early detection of prosthetic aseptic loosening of hip arthroplasty. He, Tao; Wu, Wen; Huang, Yan; Zhang, Xiaoling; Tang, Tingting; Dai, Kerong // International Orthopaedics;Jun2013, Vol. 37 Issue 6, p1025
Purpose: Our aim was to define the effect of multiple biomarkers of osteolysis or bone remodelling in the early detection of aseptic loosening (AL) of total hip arthroplasty (THA). Method: One hundred subjects were recruited, including 31 candidates for revision THA (Late AL group), 15 patients...
- Age-related appearance of muscle trauma in primary total hip arthroplasty and the benefit of a minimally invasive approach for patients older than 70 years. Müller, Michael; Tohtz, Stephan; Dewey, Marc; Springer, Ivonne; Perka, Carsten // International Orthopaedics;Feb2011, Vol. 35 Issue 2, p165
Old age is frequently associated with a poorer functional outcome after THA. This might be based upon muscular damage resulting from surgical trauma. Minimally invasive approaches have been widely promoted on the basis of the muscle sparing effect. The aim of the study was to evaluate of the...
- A modified direct lateral approach for neck-preserving total hip arthroplasty: tips and technical notes. Pipino, F.; Cimmino, M.; Palermo, A. // Journal of Orthopaedics & Traumatology;Jun2013, Vol. 14 Issue 2, p137
Tissue-sparing surgery for hip replacement aims to minimize muscle damage and conserve the femoral neck through the use of mini-prostheses. We propose a modification of the classical direct lateral access procedure that preserves the gluteus medius. Further advantages during the surgical phase...
- Serum skeletal troponin I following inspiratory threshold loading in healthy young and middle-aged men. Foster, Glen; Nakano, Jiro; Sheel, A.; Simpson, Jeremy; Road, Jeremy; Reid, W. // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Oct2012, Vol. 112 Issue 10, p3547
The purpose of this study was to determine if serum levels of skeletal troponin I (sTnI, fast and slow isoforms) could provide a sensitive marker of respiratory muscle damage in healthy humans subjected to inspiratory loads. To accomplish this, we studied healthy, young (27 Â± 2 years, Mean...
