BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Helicobacter pylori and Chlamydia pneumoniae have been associated epidemiologically and pathogenetically with coronary atherosclerosis. However, population-based data on chronic infection and stroke are lacking. Therefore, we investigated the association of both bacterial pathogens and ischemic stroke subtypes in a population-based(More)
AIM Lesions of the sciatic or femoral nerve after THR are typical complications. Delayed neuropathies of the sciatic or femoral nerve are rare conditions. CASE REPORT We report the case of a delayed neuropathy of the sciatic nerve after THR with reconstruction of the acetabulum with an acetabular reinforcement ring. After electrophysiologic evaluation we(More)
BACKROUND Improper femoral and acetabular component positioning can be associated with instability, impingement, component wear and finally patient dissatisfaction in total hip arthroplasty (THA). The concept of "femur first"/"combined anteversion", incorporates various aspects of performing a functional optimization of the prosthetic stem and cup position(More)
Background and purpose - In hip arthroplasty, acetabular inclination and anteversion-and also femoral stem torsion-are generally assessed by eye intraoperatively. We assessed whether visual estimation of cup and stem position is reliable. Patients and methods - In the course of a subgroup analysis of a prospective clinical trial, 65 patients underwent(More)
BACKGROUND Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a complication after tissue trauma, fracture and surgery (i.e. total hip arthroplasty). Prophylaxis is the most effective therapy. If HO formations become symptomatic and limit patients' quality of life, revision surgery is indicated and is usually combined with a perioperative oral prophylaxis (NSAIDs) and/or(More)
