This study evaluates the outcome of arthroscopic femoral osteochondroplasty for cam lesions of the hip in the absence of additional pathology other than acetabular chondral lesions. We retrospectively reviewed 166 patients (170 hips) who were categorised according to three different grades of chondral damage. The outcome was assessed in each grade using the(More)
BACKGROUND A ligamentum teres (LT) injury is a common finding at the time of hip arthroscopic surgery in patients with chronic groin and hip pain; however, LT tears have been difficult to identify before surgery. There have been no unique features identified on history assessment, physical examination, or imaging that reliably identify injuries of the LT(More)
Hip resurfacing is a bone-conserving procedure with respect to proximal femoral resection, but there is debate in the literature as to whether the same holds true for the acetabulum. We have investigated whether the Birmingham hip resurfacing conserves acetabular bone. Between 1998 and 2005, 500 Birmingham hip resurfacings were performed by two surgeons.(More)
Primary giant-cell tumour of soft tissue arising in the ligamentum teres has not been previously described. We report a case of such a tumour in a 46-year-old woman. The lesion was only detected at the time of hip arthroscopy despite pre-operative MRI being performed. It was successfully excised arthroscopically with resolution of the symptoms.
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate on hip pathology found at hip arthroscopy in Australian Football League (AFL) players and describe our current treatments and outcomes. METHODS From 2003 to 2008, 24 consecutive AFL players (27 hips) had arthroscopic hip surgery by use of the lateral position. Patients were assessed preoperatively and(More)
We have used the Oxford hip score to monitor the progress of 1908 primary and 279 revision hip replacements undertaken since the start of 1995. Our review programme began in early 1999 and has generated 3900 assessments. The mean pre-operative scores for primary and revision cases were 40.95 and 40.11, respectively. The mean annual score for primary(More)
We carried out a prospective study over a period of 12 months to measure the exposure to radiation of the hands of a dedicated foot and ankle surgeon. A thermoluminescent dosimeter ring (TLD) was used to measure the cumulative dose of radiation. Fluoroscopy was used in operations on the foot and ankle. The total screening time was 3028 s, with a mean time(More)
BACKGROUND In a prospective 2-year study we have used dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry to measure periprosthetic bone mineral density (BMD) following implantation of a novel, "physiological", acetabular component designed using composite materials. METHOD The acetabular components were implanted in hydroxyapatite (HA) and HA-removed options. They were(More)
INTRODUCTION A posterior entry point, a neutral tip position and neutral stem alignment are recommended to avoid a thin cement mantle and ensure an optimal outcome in total hip arthroplasty (THA). Our aim was to highlight any influence of surgical approach in obtaining an optimal stem orientation. METHODS We examined the post-operative, digitised(More)
The hip joint capsule is a critical static stabilizer of the hip. During hip arthroscopy, the capsule is breached to gain exposure to treat femoroacetabular impingement lesions. There have been recent concerns regarding hip instability after hip arthroscopy, and relatively few techniques have been described for atraumatic arthroscopic closure of the hip(More)
