Providing a long-lasting total hip arthroplasty for patients younger than 50 years remains one of the greatest challenges for modern arthroplasty surgery. We retrospectively reviewed 221 patients younger than 50 years who underwent 299 uncemented total hip arthroplasties from 1983 to 2000. We assessed 5- to 15-year survival with revision as the endpoint.(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of noise with ceramic-on-ceramic (COC) bearings in total hip arthroplasty (THA). We evaluated if patients wished be counseled about this and its potential consequences preoperatively. METHODS Two hundred eighty-two primary cementless THAs were performed in 260 patients (124 males and 136(More)
AIM There is a risk of iatrogenic injury to the soft tissues of the calcaneus and this study assesses the risk of injury to these structures in circular frame calcaneal fracture fixation. MATERIALS AND METHODS After olive tip wires were inserted, an L-shaped incision on the lateral and medial aspects of 5 formalin fixed cadaveric feet was performed to(More)
The use of external fixation for intra-articular calcaneal fractures is increasing in popularity. Studies have shown fine wire and monoaxial external fixation to be a viable surgical alternative to more invasive methods of open reduction and internal fixation of the calcaneus. However, there is an absence of literature that quantifies the risk of pin(More)
BACKGROUND Two operative approaches are commonly used for isolated talonavicular arthrodesis: the medial and the dorsal approach. It is recognized that access to the lateral aspect of the talonavicular joint can be limited when using the medial approach, and it is our experience that using the dorsal approach addresses this issue. We performed an anatomical(More)
BACKGROUND The anatomy of the first metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint, particularly the metatarsosesamoid articulation, remains poorly understood. Our goal was to quantitatively define the excursion of the sesamoids. METHODS Seven cadavers were dissected to assess the articulating surfaces throughout a normal range of motion. The dissections were digitally(More)
BACKGROUND Injuries around the foot and ankle are challenging. There is a paucity of literature, outside that of specialist orthopedic journals, that focuses on this subject in the pediatric population. DATA SOURCES In this review, we outline pediatric foot and ankle fractures in an anatomically oriented manner from the current literature. Our aim is to(More)
