Suspensory femoral fixation of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) grafts with fixed loop button and variable loop button devices has gained popularity for ACL reconstruction. This study examined these 2 methods of fixation to determine their effect on graft laxity and patient-reported outcome scores.
Three-dimensional printing has been available for several decades. However, the enthusiasm for use in hip and knee arthroplasties has only greatly increased in the past several years.
This article highlights the most common indications for revision after THA and offers recommendations for how to approach revision of the femoral component.
No differences found in incidence of complications or survivorship free of reoperation or rerevision.
Except for increased anterior-posterior knee laxity, results from this study indicated female athletes and male athletes were not similar with regard to predictors for first-time noncontact ACL injury.
Recently published results showed patients with gout who underwent total joint arthroplasty had greater wound healing and renal complications compared with patients without gout.
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.
