Titanium (Ti) and its alloys have widespread uses as implant materials for orthopaedic and dental applications. To improve their surface characteristics, modifications that give rise to an outer ceramic layer of rutile have been developed. It is expected that after a long period of service, rutile particles will arise from these modified surfaces. Rutile(More)
Patients who have undergone total hip or knee replacement (THR and TKR, respectively) are at high risk of venous thromboembolism. We aimed to determine the time courses of both the incidence of venous thromboembolism and effective prophylaxis. Patients with elective primary THR and TKR were enrolled in the multi-national Global Orthopaedic Registry. Data on(More)
Thirty-seven femoral shaft fractures occurred in 2360 cemented hip arthroplasties carried out between 1971 and 1989 at varying intervals after operation (average 3.7 years). Three types of fracture were recognised and treatment depended on the type, as did the prognosis. Good results were obtained in 70% of the cases. Sur une série consécutive de 2360(More)
To establish a protocol for the treatment of fragility fractures in the hospital setting based on treatment of osteoporosis. An intervention protocol was implemented in patients with fragility fractures based on (1) indicating the diagnosis of osteoporotic fracture in the summary of discharge; (2) “lifestyle recommendations”; and (3) therapy for(More)
In this work, the influence of thermal oxidation treatments of Ti6Al4V at 500 degrees C and 700 degrees C for 1 h on the in vitro corrosion behaviour and osteoblast response is studied. The potential of these treatments, aimed to improve the wear surface performance as biomaterial, relies in the formation of an outer "ceramic" layer of rutile. The corrosion(More)
The incidence of intraoperative femoral fractures with a single design of stem implant, the Meridian (Stryker-Howmedica, Rutherford, N.J.), has been assessed in a study of 117 implants in patients treated consecutively between 1996 and 2001. The aim of the study was to evaluate the risk factors for suffering an intraoperative fracture and to determine,(More)
We performed a prospective, quasi-experimental, randomised, interventional study comparing two models of care for patients admitted with osteoporotic hip fractures between February and August 2007 in a tertiary university hospital. The usual model of care was treatment of patients admitted to the orthopaedics ward, with consultation by the geriatrician (CG(More)
We used 79 Wagner SL stems (Sulzer Orthopedics, Baar, Switzerland) in femoral revisions with a minimum 5-year follow-up. There were 11 dislocations. A limb length discrepancy and limp were frequent. One loosened stem was rerevised. The cumulative probability of not having a stem revision for any reason was 92.3% in the best case scenario. Stem subsidence(More)
The Global Orthopaedic Registry (GLORY) offers insights into multinational practice patterns of venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in orthopedic surgery, based on data from 15,020 patients undergoing primary total knee arthroplasty or primary total hip arthroplasty from 2001 to 2004. Registry data show that the first choice for in-hospital VTE(More)
OBJECTIVE Tibial plafond fractures are one of the most challenging injuries in orthopaedic surgery. Their results could be improved by following the new guidelines for the management, and modern plating techniques. The results and complication rate between anteromedial and anterolateral approach for open reduction and internal fixation of these fractures(More)
