BACKGROUND The Japanese Orthopaedic Association Hip Score is widely used in Japan, but this tool is designed to reflect the viewpoint of health-care providers rather than that of patients. In gauging the effect of medical therapies in addition to clinical results, it is necessary to assess quality of life (QOL) from the viewpoint of patients. However, there(More)
The Japanese Orthopaedic Association hip disease evaluation questionnaire (JHEQ) was established as a new patient-reported outcome for patients with hip disease. We developed a JHEQ application beta version for tablet computers. The application has a slider system to input visual analogue scale (VAS) measurements. The purposes of this study were 1) to test(More)
A 53-year-old man presented with pain in the right hip. Radiological examination showed idiopathic osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) combined with a cam lesion. Findings on physical examination were consistent for femoroacetabular impingement. At surgery, we performed isolated arthroscopic correction for the cam lesion but did not use other treatment(More)
INTRODUCTION The pathophysiology of rapidly destructive hip osteoarthritis (OA) of the hip is still unclear. Also, there have been only few reports on the initial stage of the disease. We report a case of an initial-stage rapidly destructive hip OA, documented by magnetic resonance imaging and intraoperative findings. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 77-year-old(More)
INTRODUCTION Although the subchondral portion of the femoral head is a common site for collapse in osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH), femoral-neck fracture rarely occurs during the course of ONFH. We report a case of occult insufficiency fracture of the femoral neck without conditions predisposing to insufficiency fractures, occurring in association(More)
INTRODUCTION In the majority of subchondral insufficiency fractures (SIFs) of the femoral head, T1-weighted magnetic resonance imaging shows an irregular, serpiginous, low-intensity band that is convex to the articular surface. We report a case of a cystlike formation in SIF of the femoral head in an elderly woman. PRESENTATION OF CASE A 71-year-old woman(More)
Pigmented villonodular synovitis is a rare, benign, but potentially locally aggressive disease that should be considered in younger patients who present with monoarticular joint symptoms and pathology. We present the case of a 33-year-old woman with a mass arising from her right hip joint that was examined using a multimodal radiological approach. Because(More)
There is sometimes uncertainty concerning the correct socket position prior to total hip arthroplasty (THA). We conducted a study to determine the hip centre in Japanese women in order to define the true anatomical position of the acetabulum. The study involved 200 consecutive female patients in whom the contralateral hip joint was normal or was(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Many clinical reports have indicated that polished hip stems show better clinical results than rough stems of the same geometry. It is still unknown, however, what the mechanical effects are of different surface finishes on the cement at the cement-bone interface. We compared mechanical effects in an in vitro cemented hip arthroplasty(More)
