Infected hip prosthesis, a serious complication of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA), can have severe consequences. We report the treatment outcome of two-stage revision THA for infected hip arthroplasty, including hemiarthroplasty, using an antibiotic-impregnated cement spacer for the interval between the first and second stages. Between 1996 and 2000(More)
BACKGROUND From 1979 to 2005, a total of 279 hips in 249 patients with advanced and/or terminal-stage osteoarthritis of the hip underwent valgus osteotomy. Among them, we reviewed 256 hips in 229 patients (91.8%) with a minimum follow-up of 1 year. We reviewed the clinical and radiological results and analyzed prognostic factors that may have affected the(More)
We report the clinical and radiographic outcomes and complications of revision surgery using a cementless interlocking stem with an allograft-prosthesis composite (APC). This study included 11 patients with an average follow-up of 73 years. Of the 11 revisions, 1 was aseptic, 7 were septic, and 3 were periprosthetic femoral fractures. The mean Harris hip(More)
Bipolar hemiarthroplasty (BHA) for idiopathic osteonecrosis of the femoral head (ONFH) is performed at our institution. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiographic findings after BHA for the treatment of steroid -induced ONFH. Thirty-seven hips in 27 patients were assessed (seven men, 11 hips; 20 women, 26 hips), average patient(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a disinfection method using a microwave apparatus to treat large bone allografts. Heating of a bone allograft is an effective method for the disinfection of bacteria or inactivation of viruses. However, the size of the bone we can treat is limited, and following the popular method of using a bathtub is a lengthy(More)
The use of hip arthroscopy has been widely increasing. Although deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is thought to be a serious complication of orthopaedic surgery, there were few reports discussing DVT related to hip arthroscopic surgery. This study aimed to investigate the incidence and risk factors of DVT related to hip arthroscopic surgery. This retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND In revision total hip replacement (THR), cages and rings are commonly used for the reconstruction of bone defects that are due to mechanical loosening of the acetabular cup and migration of the femoral head prosthesis. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the radiological results of the use of Ganz reinforcement rings with bone allografts in(More)
We report the status of bone allografting in Japan on the basis of the information obtained through questionnaires performed by the Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA). JOA performed a nation-wide survey in 2000, in order to clarify the current status of musculoskeletal tissue grafting in the orthopaedic practices in Japan. Conducted period was for 5(More)
BACKGROUND Femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) is one factor known to cause pain and osteoarthritis (OA) of the hips. Although secondary OA due to hip dysplasia is common among Japanese populations, primary OA is seldom observed. Concomitantly, FAI is also thought to be uncommon in Japan, but relatively few epidemiological studies have addressed this issue.(More)
During cementless stem fixation, impaction of the stem is occasionally complicated by bony injuries. Small fractures not visible to the eye during surgery or on post-operative radiographs may remain undetected, and the incidence of such injuries may be underestimated. Employing the same techniques as those employed during total hip arthroplasty, we(More)
