Case Study
The article presents a case study of coxofemoral luxation that occurred in a horse during its recovery from general anesthesia. This abnormality is not common in horses, but in case of its development the young foals or ponies will be the victims. This case report reveals an increase in testicular size and induration along with an inguinal hernia of the small intestine with abnormal penstalsis.

    Background: Residual acetabular dysplasia of the hip in most patients can be corrected by periacetabular osteotomy. However, some patients have intraarticular abnormalities causing insufficient coverage, containment or congruency after periacetabular osteotomy, or extraarticular abnormalities...

    In this article the authors discuss a systemic review on the use of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) versus hemiarthroplasty to treat older patients with displaced intracapsular hip fractures. They point out that the evidence of the outcomes of the study demonstrates the superiority of THA...

    Here we describe a 28-year-old man with a history of right hip pain for the past 11 years and ankylosing spondylitis for the past 6 months. Imaging studies showed an exostosis in the femoral neck causing femoroacetabular impingement. The patient was diagnosed with coxarthrosis. This case report...

    Bilateral fractures of neck of femur are very rare. This is a report of a patient who sustained bilateral intracapsular fracture of hip following convulsions and discusses the difficulties encountered in early diagnosis and treatment. Intracapsular femoral neck fractures in young patients need...

    Abstract  Asphericity of the femoral head-neck junction is one cause for femoroacetabular impingement of the hip. However, the asphericity often is underestimated on conventional radiographs. This study compares the presence of asphericity on conventional radiographs with its appearance on...

    Traumatic hip dislocation in the paediatric population is a relatively rare occurrence and constitutes an orthopaedic emergency. A trivial force is all that is required and non-accidental injury should not be necessarily suspected. A case report involving a hip dislocation in a 21-month-old...

    Background: Anteversion of an acetabular component often is difficult to ascertain in patients with THA in whom excessively anteverted or retroverted femurs may result in limited ROM or risk of dislocation. Restriction of motion, however, is determined by the combination of version of both...
