The aim of this retrospective cohort study was to identify any difference in femoral offset as measured on pre-operative anteroposterior (AP) radiographs of the pelvis, AP radiographs of the hip and corresponding CT scans in a consecutive series of 100 patients with primary end-stage osteoarthritis of the hip (43 men and 57 women with a mean age of 61 years(More)
Peri-prosthetic femoral fracture after total hip replacement (THR) is associated with a poor outcome and high mortality. However, little is known about its long-term incidence after uncemented THR. We retrospectively reviewed a consecutive series of 326 patients (354 hips) who had received a CLS Spotorno replacement with an uncemented, straight, collarless(More)
Biological reactions against wear particles are a common cause for revision in total knee arthroplasty. To date, wear has mainly been attributed to polyethylene. However, the implants have large metallic surfaces that also could potentially lead to metal wear products (metal ions and debris). The aim of this study was to determine the local release of(More)
The evolutionary conserved Wnt signaling pathway regulates cardiogenesis. However, members of the Wnt pathway are also expressed in the adult heart. Although Wnt-signaling is quiescent under normal conditions, we noticed activation on pathological stress of the heart, such as chronic afterload increase. To examine the role of Wnt signaling on the postnatal(More)
The Oxford mobile-bearing unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR) is an effective and safe treatment for osteoarthritis of the medial compartment. The results in the lateral compartment have been disappointing due to a high early rate of dislocation of the bearing. A series using a newly designed domed tibial component is reported. The first 50 consecutive(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the functional outcome of patients following unicompartmental knee replacement (UKR) using the Oxford domed lateral UKR to patients who underwent cruciate-retaining total knee replacement (TKR) for isolated osteoarthritis in the lateral compartment. With the help of our institutional database, we retrospectively(More)
After clinical introduction of the Fitmore® stem (Zimmer), we noticed the formation of cortical hypertrophies in a few cases. We questioned whether (1) the primary stability or (2) load transfer of the Fitmore® stem differs from other stems unassociated with the formation of hypertrophies. We compared the Fitmore® stem to the well-established CLS® stem.(More)
BACKGROUND Uncemented femoral components in primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) are commonly used today, but few studies have evaluated their survival into the third decade. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We evaluated (1) survivorship using femoral revision for any reason as the end point; (2) survivorship using femoral revision for aseptic loosening as the end(More)
Uncemented, threaded acetabular components with smooth surface treatment were widely used in continental Europe in the 1970s and 1980s for primary total hip arthroplasty (THA). Previously published studies showed high failure rates in the mid-term. In a consecutive series of 116 patients, 127 threaded cups with smooth surface treatment (Weill cup; Zimmer,(More)
Concerns have been raised in relation to metal-on-metal (MoM) articulations with catastrophic soft-tissue reactions due to metal debris. We reviewed how small head MoM articulations perform in primary uncemented total hip arthroplasty (THA) in young patients at a minimum of ten years. We retrospectively evaluated the clinical and radiographic results of the(More)
