Infection of a hip prosthesis is one of the most severe complications encountered in orthopedic practice. Two-stage reconstruction using an antibiotic-impregnated cement spacer has become a popular procedure for the treatment of this condition. However, there are some disadvantages with the use of antibiotic-loaded cement, including low biocompatibility, a(More)
BACKGROUND Night pain is a particularly vexing symptom in patients with rotator cuff tear. It disturbs sleep and decreases quality of life, and there is no consensus regarding its etiology. Based on arthroscopic surgical observations of synovitis around the rotator interval or capsule surface in rotator cuff tear, we hypothesized that blood flow from the(More)
A collarless, proximally porous-coated type of Spongiosa Metal II hip prosthesis was used for cementless total hip arthroplasty in 52 hips, and 48 hips were followed and assessed during a mean follow-up period of 6.3 years (minimum 5 years). There were 8 hips (16.7%) that had stress shielding, and 2 hips (4.2%) that had thigh pain. In terms of stability,(More)
Y oung athletes who employ overhead arm movements frequently develop shoulder pain caused by muscle tightness or scapula dysfunction. Generally, they are instructed to perform a stretching and muscle-conditioning regimen, but refractory pain without muscle tightness sometimes persists. In such cases, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) should be used to look(More)
We evaluated the clinical and radiographic results of primary total hip arthroplasty for 81 dysplastic hips (71 patients) using cementless Spongiosa Metal II cups (ESKA Implants, Lübeck, Germany). The mean follow-up period was 6.4 years (minimum 5 years), and the preoperative mean Japanese Orthopaedic Association hip score had improved from 45.2 to 87.4(More)
Ultrasonography (US) is a non-invasive method which can assess not only solid tissue organs but also soft tissues such as tendons and nerves. However, it has not been fully understood that US is a useful tool for the depiction of periarticular structure. We compared the diagnostic accuracies between US and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the patients(More)
Morcellized bone grafting was performed to significant acetabular deficiency in 35 hips of 29 patients in cementless total hip arthroplasty (THA). Bridging trabeculation across the graft-host interface, remodeling of the graft, and trabecular reorientation were observed at 4 weeks, 3.7 months, and 10.7 months postoperatively, respectively. These remodeling(More)
We describe a case of suprascapular nerve entrapment caused by protrusion of an intraosseous ganglion of the glenoid into the spinoglenoid notch. A 47-year-old man with left shoulder pain developed an intraosseous cyst in the left glenoid, which came into contact with the suprascapular nerve. The area at which the patient experienced spontaneous shoulder(More)
BACKGROUND The patterns and magnitudes of axial femorotibial rotation are variable due to the prosthesis design, ligamentous balancing, and surgical procedures. We aimed to investigate the effects of the weight bearing (WB) condition on the kinematics of mobile-bearing total knee arthroplasty (TKA). METHODS We examined 12 patients (19 knees) implanted(More)
