In this study, we used laboratory data and clinical outcomes to evaluate the degree of approach-related trauma in mini-incision arthroplasty. In 94 patients (8 male and 86 female), a total of 100 osteoarthritic joints were replaced using total hip arthroplasty (THA). The level of serum C-reactive protein (CRP) and the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR)(More)
Insufficiency fractures are often overlooked, particularly when associated with greater trochanteric avulsion fractures. Here, we report magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of insufficiency femoral intertrochanteric fractures associated with greater trochanteric avulsion fractures treated by internal fixation. We identified 8 patients (3 men and 5(More)
We report a case of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) accompanied by steroid-induced avascular necrosis of the femoral head in a 68-year-old woman. Extremely low platelet counts of ITP patients prohibit any surgical interventions. Her platelet count was 25,000/μL. We performed a total hip arthroplasty with high-dose immunoglobulin therapy and(More)
