The article discusses the effectiveness of the Metasul Large Diameter Head (LDH) with Durom Acetabular Component which was launched in Europe in 2003. It notes that this therapeutic regimen that was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been attributed to positive medical prognosis including an increased range of hip motion, greater durability, and enhanced stability. However, few patients exhibited symptoms of mild pain and groin discomfort following the therapy.

    Congenital, traumatic, or extrinsic causes can lead people to paraplegia; some of these are potentially; reversible and others are not. Paraplegia can couse hip flexion contracture and, consequently, pressure sores, scoliosis, and hyperlordosis; lumbar and groin pain are strictly correlated....

    Background: Literature on complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS-I) discussing the decision to amputate or not, the level of amputation, or the timing of the amputation is scarce. We evaluated informed decision-making regarding amputation for CRPS-I. Methods: We describe our findings in a...
