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.

    Periprosthetic osteolysis is the most common complication after total hip arthroplasty and is seen with increasing frequency due to the growing number of arthroplasties and lifetime of the implants (1). Most of the time the bone loss is due to wear-mediated inflammation that ultimately can lead...

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

    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...

    Aim: To evaluate the functional and radiological outcome of primary total hip replacement (THR) using modular total hip system at 2-10 years follow-up.

    Background: Stress shielding and nonphysiological load transfer after primary or revision total hip replacement (THR) prepare the ground for resorptive bone remodeling. The quality of the bone stock influences the risk of periprosthetic fractures and the severity of future revision surgeries....
