OBJECTIVE to determine the prevalence of radiographic signs of femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) in asymptomatic adults and correlate them with data from physical examinations. METHODS We conducted a cross-sectional study with 82 asymptomatic volunteers, 164 hips, between 40 and 60 years of age, selected by convenience. They were submitted to anamnesis(More)
BACKGROUND This is a cohort trial (1997-2005) of 49 patients submitted to an acetabular component revision of a total hip arthroplasty, using impacted human and bovine freeze-dried cancellous bone grafts (H&FDBG) and a reinforcement device. OBJECTIVE To compare clinical/radiographic graft incorporation capability between cancellous bone grafts. (More)
INTRODUCTION The use of bone grafts in orthopedic, maxillofacial and dental surgery has been growing. Nevertheless, both fresh autografts and frozen allografts have limitations, and therefore, alternative synthetic or natural biomaterials, such as processed and lyophilized bovine bone graft have been developed. OBJECTIVE To evaluate in vitro and in vivo(More)
BACKGROUND Favorable results have been obtained by the use of deep-frozen bone allografts in total hip arthroplasty. However, owing to the shortage of deep-frozen allografts and the risk of infectious disease, other materials have been studied, such as sterile nondemineralized freeze-dried allografts. The aim of this study was to describe midterm clinical(More)
BACKGROUND There is a lack of uniformity in the diagnostic criteria for femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), and few studies discuss the prevalence of radiographic changes in asymptomatic individuals. These factors make it difficult to establish a natural history of this disease. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of radiographic signs of CAM(More)
In many papers, the diagnosis of pincer-type femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is attributed to the presence of coxa profunda. However, little is known about the prevalence of coxa profunda in the general population and its clinical relevance. In order to ascertain its prevalence in asymptomatic subjects and whether it is a reliable indicator of(More)
A series of 14 total hip arthroplasties using the cementless Spotorno expansive acetabular component was performed to treat post traumatic osteoarthrosis that had developed following an acetabular fracture. The mean age of the patients at the time of the arthroplasty was 47 years (range 28-77 years). This study was performed between 1989 to 1999 (11 years),(More)
Comparison between the antero-lateral and posterior approaches in primary total hip arthroplasty. In this retrospective study, 184 patients were enrolled, 95 submitted to the anterolateral (Watson jones) and 89 to the posterior approach (Moore) from June 1993 to June 1997. The outcomes assessed were perioperative data (operative time, hospital stay, time(More)
OBJECTIVE To report clinical and radiographic graft incorporation capability of bovine freeze-dried bone grafts. METHODS Twenty five patients were enrolled. The mean follow-up was eight years. Grafts were purified and freeze-dried. Clinical analysis was based on the score of Merle d'Aubigné and Postel and an established score criteria for radiographic(More)
UNLABELLED Hip osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease, and total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the surgical procedures of choice to improve the OA patient's quality of life. Without a rehabilitation program, THA patients will develop functional limitations. A randomized double-blind trial was performed between July 2009 and October 2011 to compare(More)
