BACKGROUND Although a wide variety of acetabular deformities in developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) have been reported, the morphologic features of the entire pelvis in DDH are not well characterized and their correlation with acetabular deformity is unknown. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We determined whether there was a rotational deformity of the entire(More)
Morphological correlation between the acetabulum and femur at the hip joint is still controversial. We tested the hypothesis that femoral anteversion correlates with acetabular version and coverage in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH). Using pelvic computed tomography (CT) images of 79 hips in 49 Asian women with DDH and 49 normal hips,(More)
The combined anteversion (CA) technique is a method in which the cup is placed according to the stem anteversion in total hip arthroplasty (THA). We examined whether the CA technique reduced the dislocation rate, and the distribution of CA with the manual placement of the cup. We retrospectively reviewed 634 hips in 579 patients with primary cementless THA.(More)
BACKGROUND The rotational position of the acetabulum to the pelvis (acetabular tilt) may influence acetabular version and coverage of the femoral head. To date, the pathologic significance of acetabular tilt in hip dysplasia is unknown. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES We determined whether acetabular tilt in hip dysplasia is different from that in normal hips and(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of ceramic femoral head material, size, and implantation periods on the wear of annealed, cross-linked ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) (XLPE) in total hip arthroplasty compared to non-cross-linked conventional UHMWPE (CPE). XLPE was fabricated by cross-linking with 60 kGy irradiation and(More)
This study was conducted to examine the risk factors for recurrent dislocation after total hip arthroplasty (THA) and test the hypothesis that late dislocations are associated with recurrence. A total of 1,250 hips in 1,017 patients were retrospectively reviewed. All operations were performed through the posterolateral approach with posterior soft tissue(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to report results at a minimum of 10 years for hydroxyapatite (HA) coating on the titanium arc-sprayed cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA) and to evaluate the impact of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) on implant longevity. METHODS A total of 131 consecutive primary THAs in 123 patients using an AMS acetabular cup(More)
Stem version is not always equivalent to femoral neck version (native version) in cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA). We therefore examined the discrepancy of version between the native femoral neck and stem using pre- and postoperative computed tomography (CT), the level of the femur where the canal version most closely fit the stem version, and the(More)
We examined the remodelling of the femoral head–neck junction in patients with slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE) and the frequency of residual cam deformities. We reviewed 69 hips in 56 patients with stable SCFE who had undergone in situ pinning. Mean age at slip was 11.7 years and the follow-up period 63.4 months. Cam deformity was evaluated using(More)
This study was conducted to assess the posterior inclination of the contralateral femoral epiphysis in patients with unilateral slipped capital femoral epiphysis (SCFE). The posterior sloping angle (PSA) was measured using lateral radiographs in 67 patients with a unilateral SCFE and in 41 age-matched normal controls. A symptomatic epiphyseal slip was(More)
