Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate whether acetabular morphology may influence both pathogenesis and prognosis of the acetabular rim lesions and to propose a new system to classify labral tears. Methods: We assessed radiographic and arthroscopic findings in 81 patients (40 male and 41 female patients, 86 hips) aged from 16 to 74 years (median, 31 years) who underwent hip arthroscopy. Results: Acetabular rim lesions were associated with four different hip morphologies. Eleven (32 %) of 34 patients with severe rim lesions underwent hip arthroplasty for progressive symptoms, whereas no patient with early rim lesion reported significant progression of symptoms. The strategy of treatment was changed in 33 % of the patients undergoing arthroscopy before undertaking peri-acetabular osteotomy. Conclusions: Hip arthroscopy avoids more invasive procedures in patients with early acetabular rim lesions.

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between...

    Background: Traumatic hip dislocation results from the dissipation of a large amount of energy about the hip joint. Clinically, these forces often are first transmitted through the knee en route to the hip. It is therefore logical to look for coexistent ipsilateral knee injury in patients with a...

    Abstract  Cementless total hip replacement (THR) is rapidly being accepted as the surgery for arthritic diseases of the hip joint. The bone-ingrowth rate in porous-type cementless implants was about 90% over 10 years after surgery, showing that biological fixation of cementless THR was...

    etabular osteolysis associated with socket loosening is one of the main long-term complications of total hip arthroplasty. In case of major bone loss, where <50% host bone coverage can be obtained with a porous-coated cementless cup, it is generally agreed that a metal ring or cage in...

    Total hip arthroplasty is problematical in the case of high dislocation. To reposition the hip, a femoral shortening osteotomy is necessary in order to prevent damage to the neurovascular structures. This paper describes the implantation of a cementless straight stem in 15 patients using a...
