BACKGROUND Reports in the literature have linked high acetabular inclination angles to increased wear of ceramic-on-ceramic bearings. However, many of these studies were only conducted in vitro and did not address the clinical relevance of such findings. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We therefore determined: (1) whether the cup inclination angle influences survival(More)
BACKGROUND Intermittent administration of parathyroid hormone (PTH) leads to bone formation by increasing osteoblast numbers and activity levels. Animal studies have shown that intermittent PTH administration increases implant fixation in normal rats. The purpose of this study was to analyze the osseous incorporation of an implant in osteoporotic rats while(More)
We have examined the deterioration of implant fixation after withdrawal of parathyroid hormone (PTH) in rats. First, the pull-out force for stainless-steel screws in the proximal tibia was measured at different times after withdrawal. The stimulatory effect of PTH on fixation was lost after 16 days. We then studied whether bisphosphonates could block this(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the impact of preoperative functional status on early postoperative outcomes after total hip arthroplasty (THA). METHODS 39 men and 36 women aged 50 to 76 years who underwent cementless THA for osteoarthritis were followed up for at least 2 years. Patients were evaluated pre- and post-operatively (at 6, 12, and 24 months) using the(More)
This technical note describes the use of an arthroscope or endoscope to enhance visualization during minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty. The arthroscope/endoscope is used to verify seating of the components and to look for potential impingements, loose bodies, or fractures. This technique was successfully used to identify and address 2 bony or soft(More)
