BACKGROUND For total hip arthroplasty (THA), minimally invasive surgery (MIS) uses a smaller incision and less muscle dissection than the classic approach (CLASS), and may lead to faster rehabilitation. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES Does minimally invasive hip arthroplasty result in superior clinical outcomes? PATIENTS AND METHODS In this double-blind randomized(More)
BACKGROUND Four-part fractures of the proximal humerus account for 3% of all humeral fractures and are regarded as the most difficult fractures to treat in the elderly. Various authors recommend nonoperative treatment or hemiarthroplasty, but the literature is unclear regarding which provides better quality of life and function. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We(More)
A dual mobility cup has the theoretic potential to improve stability in primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) and mid-term cohort results are favorable. We hypothesized that use of a new-generation dual mobility cup in revision arthroplasty prevents dislocation in patients with a history of recurrent dislocation of the THA. We performed a retrospective(More)
This paper presents a body-fixed-sensor (BFS) based approach for quantifying compensatory trunk movements during unconstrained walking. Orientation of trunk segments was calculated by fusing low-pass filtered accelerometer data and high-pass filtered data from gyroscopes. To evaluate accuracy, frontal plane angular movements of the pelvis during different(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Currently, Propionibacterium is frequently recognized as a causative microorganism of prosthetic joint infection (PJI). We assessed treatment success at 1- and 2-year follow-up after treatment of Propionibacterium-associated PJI of the shoulder, hip, and knee. Furthermore, we attempted to determine whether postoperative treatment with(More)
We describe the implementation process of hip prostheses selection in the Netherlands. The recent problems with large head metal-on-metal hip prostheses resulted in substantial damage to the surgeons' credibility and reputation in the media. This led to a true sense of urgency among orthopaedic surgeons to increase their activities to secure patient safety.(More)
We investigated the rate of polyethylene wear of a cementless acetabular component at different periods of follow-up in order to test the hypothesis than an irrecoverable deformation process (creep) was followed by an initially low, but gradually increasing wear rate. We studied prospectively 93 uncemented total hip arthroplasties in 83 patients (mean age(More)
BACKGROUND There have been few reports on the mid- and long-term follow-up results of the proximally HA-coated femoral stem. We evaluated this type of stem prospectively, with 6-12 years of follow-up. METHODS The survival rate, Harris hip score and radiographic features of 106 hips in 100 consecutive patients were evaluated. The mean age at operation was(More)
To date, no studies have been published that report on the in vivo advantages of sterilisation in argon (ARGON) versus air (AIR) of UHMWPE liners with respect to wear extend and pattern in uncemented total hip arthroplasty. Femoral penetration rates were measured in 93 AIR and 79 ARGON liners, during a mean follow-up of 8 (3–12) years. During the first 3(More)
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the treatment options in patients with cerebral palsy (CP) with painful osteoarthritis of the hip. However, the risk of dislocation of the prosthesis is higher in patients with CP when compared with physically normal patients. In this retrospective study of ten consecutive cases, we hypothesized that the use of a(More)
