Patients who underwent primary hip arthroscopy experienced greater improvement in patient-reported outcome scores at 2- year follow-up compared with patients who underwent revision arthroscopy, according to recently presented data
Recently published results showed 70% of patients who underwent total hip or knee arthroplasty avoided more aggressive anticoagulation after the use of a risk stratification protocol for venous thromboembolism.
Recently published results showed surgeon work effort increased for revision total hip arthroplasty, with substantially longer length of surgery and length of stay and more blood loss and complications, compared with primary total hip arthroplasty.
Effect of General Anesthesia on Preoperative Hip Range of Motion in Patients Undergoing Hip Arthroscopy
Hip ROM does not change to a clinically significant extent with induction of general anesthesia. Small increases in external rotation in patients with FAI or acetabular dysplasia are within the standard error for ROM measurements.
Robotic-assisted surgery aims to improve TKA by enhancing the surgeon's ability to optimize soft tissue balancing, reproduce alignment, and restore normal knee kinematics.
Study to evaluate outcomes of different hip replacement techniques using mobile gait analysis system
Researchers at Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) have launched a pilot study using a portable gait analysis mat to determine early outcomes of several different hip replacement techniques. Gait analysis provides information about the way an individual walks.
Recently published results showed large variation in the rotational plane for both femoral and tibial components during 3-D unicompartmental knee arthroplasty component alignment analysis in the standing position, suggesting the importance of component positioning.
Since last summer, Ranganathan and his team — consisting of Jill Sharkey, a member of Rowan University's class of 2017, and Ridwan Murshed, a Rowan grad student from Bangladesh — have been working to develop new pieces that would administer controlled antibiotics into the body and prevent the need to open up patients a second or third time.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, over 50 million Americans have arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative joint disease. Though it can occur in younger people, it often affects people 50 years of age and older.
The authors state: "While there are certainly controversies in the field of osteoporosis, there are also issues upon which there is complete or near-complete agreement: specifically, there is consensus that patients with hip fracture should receive pharmacological treatment to prevent additional fractures, as they are clearly at risk for recurrent hip or other osteoporotic fractures, and initiation of bisphosphonate therapy after hip fracture has been shown to reduce the risk of a second hip fracture."
