Hip dysplasia is a condition affecting both infants and adults, characterized by a shallow acetabulum that does not sufficiently cover the head of the femur. This leads to instability of the hip and elevated levels of mechanical stress around the acetabular rim. A popular procedure for the correction of hip dysplasia is the periacetabular osteotomy (PAO), in which fluoroscopically guided osteotomies around the pelvis are made to allow for repositioning of the acetabulum to fit properly on the femoral head. This systematic review aims to analyze patient factors that impact outcomes, as well as patient-reported outcomes such as the Harris Hip Score (HHS) and the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Arthritis Index (WOMAC).
While ACL reconstruction with an allograft was associated with a high risk of revision in younger patients, it may be an acceptable choice for older patients who are not athletes
Retained Functional Antibiotic Hip Spacers Have High Rates of Stem Loosening, Subsidence, and Reoperation
Functional antibiotic hip spacers for treatment of periprosthetic joint infection may be retained in patients deemed too sick for reimplantation, or who elect to forego additional surgery. Our aim was to characterize reoperations, modes of failure, and function outcomes in patients who have retained hip spacers.
Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is a cost-effective procedure, but it is also associated with substantial postoperative pain. The present study aimed to compare pain relief and functional recovery after TKA among groups that received intravenous corticosteroids, periarticular corticosteroids, or a combination of both.
Although arthroscopic surgery of the meniscus is minimally invasive, you may still experience knee pain after surgery. For some people, other problems can occur after surgery, such as arthritis, re-injury, incomplete rehabilitation, and more.
Next-generation DNA sequencing (NGS) techniques show the presence of bacterial DNA in surgical specimens of hip and knee arthritis, from patients undergoing first-time total joint arthroplasty, reports a study in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery.
With the current trend of fitness consciousness, many people have taken up long-distance running as a part of their exercise regime. They also participate in various local, national, and global marathons. But marathon running can lead to muscular fatigue and damage in the foot muscles, which can in turn lead to chronic pain or injuries.
A total hip replacement may slow down patients who enjoy high-impact sports and alter how young athletes stay active for the rest of their lives. Hip preservation is an alternative treatment method that aims to conserve the body and avoid the need for hip replacement.
Hamstring rehabilitation exercises can aid recovery and help prevent future injuries. Rehabilitation protocols typically call for a combination of stretching and strengthening movements.
Among patients with labral tears, hip arthroscopy with primary labral repair is the gold standard treatment, which published literature has shown to have high success rates.
