Case Study
The article presents a case study about a sixty-one-year-old woman with a right-sided pain nine years after a right primary total hip arthroplasty. She states that the pain was getting worse with activity and improved with rest. She also had a history of cholecystectomy, hernia repairs and right knee replacement. The article discusses periacetabular osteolysis and with a treatment of bone stock restoration and stable acetabular fixation.

However, numerous failure mechanisms limit the long-term success including aseptic osteolysis, aseptic loosening, infection, and implant instability. Aseptic osteolysis and subsequent...

    Staged bilateral hip arthroplasties were carried out in two patients with osteoarthritis of the hip secondary to the development of hip dysplasia in Hereditary Multiple Exostosis (HME). Both patients had near ankylosis of their hips with pain and difficulty in performing activities of daily...

    Femoral deformity in primary total hip arthroplasty can make restoration of joint biomechanics difficult. The S-ROM (DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., Warsaw, Ind) prosthesis' modular design allows for independent matching of diaphyseal and metaphyseal anatomy. Corrective osteotomy may also be performed...

  • Modular junctions. Cameron, Hugh U. // Orthopedics;Sep2005 Supplement, Vol. 28, ps1057 

    A concern about modular stems is that the taper will not provide an adequate seal, causing the stem distal to the taper to become part of the effective joint space. In this study, 380 primary patients and 309 revision patients were treated with a proximally modular stem. Follow-up was between 5...

    Abstract  Great strides have been made in the field of total hip arthroplasty, but the issue of wear and osteolysis continue to be a problem, mostly for young adults. For this population varus rotational osteotomy still remains a viable alternative to total hip arthroplasty. The...

    Type C bone, as described by Dorr, exhibits both cellular and structural compromise, which presents a challenge for fixation of a total hip arthroplasty (THA). We evaluated the performance of the Omnifit® HA stem, a hydroxyapatite-coated titanium alloy stem, by retrospectively reviewing the...

  • The Quality of Osteolysis Grafting with Cementless Acetabular Component Retention. C Engh // Clinical Orthopaedics & Related Research;Dec2007, Vol. 465 Issue 1, p150 

    Periprosthetic osteolysis is a common cause for revision of total hip arthroplasty. When modular cementless acetabular components are stable, curettage and grafting of the osteo-lytic lesion while retaining the component are a good surgical option. Although the midterm outcome of this procedure...

    We asked if there was a shorter time to revision, and different indications for revision, for primary total hip arthroplasties performed in the community by general orthopaedic surgeons (nonspecialists) as compared with primary total hip arthroplasties performed by specialists. We...
